The Concept of Bio-Energies
The Tridosha (three bio-energies) found in our body are Vata,Pitta And Kapha.
Vata pertains to air and ether elements.
This energy is generally seen as the force, which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and elimination in our body.
Pitta pertains to fire and water elements.
This dosha governs metabolism, e.g., the transformation of foods into nutrients. Pitta is also responsible for metabolism in the organ and tissue systems.
Kapha pertains to water and earth element.Kapha is responsible for growth and protection. The mucousal lining of the stomach, and the cerebral-spinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal column are examples of kapha.
