The Ayurvedic medical system aims to create inner and outer balance, as this is the prerequisite for health, fitness, and happiness. Since one or two doshas are more prominent in the vast majority of people, creating this balance is crucial. To better understand this, it is worth taking a more precise look at vata, pitta, and kapha:
The vata dosha consists of the elements of space and air, the pitta dosha of fire and water, the kapha dosha of water and earth. For a harmonious living environment, it is necessary to have these five elements in balance. For example, too much rain (the water element) would wash away the land; too much sun (the fire element) would burn the ground.
It is also similar with the doshas in our body. If vata, pitta, and kapha keep flowing smoothly, we are healthy. If there are accumulations of one dosha or another, we get sick.
