According to Ayurveda, the basic constituents of human body are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These are called Tridosha or three Humors. Our body is controlled and regulated by the coordinated and balanced functions of Tridosha. It helps the body to be alive. All the physical and mental functions of the body are governed by these three humors.
In Ayurvedic philosophy, various health problems are caused by an imbalance in one of the three humors. So the Ayurvedic therapy is based on the Tridosha or Humors. The treatment of any diseases is first started to balance the Humors. The imbalance is probably due to the increment or decrement on one Humor (Dosha) or two or all three humors. This may be caused by the increment on one humor and decrement one the others.
