The compendium of knowledge regarding the existence of human life and longevity of human life is known as Ayurveda. Where life is concerned, Ayurveda envisages human existence at the three levels namely spiritual, mental and physical levels. Where longevity is concerned, in addition to the above levels, the two interactive levels are considered namely the social and environmental levels. The two interactive levels are functionally assuming the stimulus organism response loop. So Ayurveda formulates human life on the basis of the above concerns.
The fluctuations in the biological rhythm with respect to the multitudes of psychosomatic activity and the increased decreased and -perverted activities of senses and physical body will result in diseases and the balanced activity of the above will result in health.
The biological rhythm and the psychosomatic activity have been manifested at micro and macro levels as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in the physical level and Satwa, Rajas and Thamas in the mental level. So disturbance in the above will result in diseases and the balance will result in health. All Ayurvedic wellness and therapeutic prescriptions are focused on bringing the balance in the psychosomatic level.
