Why is Ayurveda so powerful?
Ayurveda is an ancient science that recognises that everything outside of us affects what goes on inside. The food we eat, the herbs or supplements we take, what we drink, the seasons of the year, the environment around us, even what type of exercise we do and therapies we receive, all have a particular type of impact on our body, mind and emotions. As we understand ourselves better, we notice how our health, relationships and quality of life all improve.  

According to the healing science of Ayurveda, every living and non-living thing in the universe is made up of a combination of 5 basic elements—space, air, fire, water and earth. Every individual is made up of these 5 elements in various compositions. They manifest in the human body as 3 basic principles or subtle energies known as doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.
space + air combine to form vata
fire + water combine to form pitta
water + earth combine to form kapha
This explains why everything outside us can affect us. 
Knowledge of the qualities of the 5 elements and the 3 doshas helps us to rebalance and lead ayurvedically happy and healthy lives. When our doshas (constitution) are in balance, we are able to function at our highest level as human beings. By understanding the positive and negative aspects of each element and dosha, we can design our life in such a way that we can live the life we want to—healthy, happy and fulfilled.
