According to Ayurveda, body, mind, and consciousness work together to maintain balance. The universe is formed by Ether, Fire, Water, and Air. When combined together, these elements manifested in all creation form the Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata creates movement so fluids can go into cells, Pitta transforms nutrients, and Kapha forms the structure of the body. The very foundation of Ayurveda resides in the tridosha. Similar concept is found within the Greek philosophy: wind, bile, and phlegm.
