Ayurveda considers that a person is pmade up of 5 primary Elements. These are Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. While people are composite of these five elements, certain elements have the ability and combine to create various physiological functions. For example, ether and air combine to form what is known in Ayurveda as the VATA dosha.

Vata governs movement and can be seen as the force which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration and elimination. Fire and Water combine to form PITTA dosha. Pitta is the process of transformation or metabolism. The transformation of foods into nutrients that our bodies can
assimilatre is an example of a pitta function.

Finally Water and earth elements combine to form the KAPHA dosha. Kapha is responsible for growth and adding structure unit by unit, it also offers protection.
