Ayurveda perceives life as a four dimensional entity i.e. Ayu, the living entity which is the sum total of Sharira (Body), Indriya (Senses), Satwa (Psyche) and Atma (Soul). Life is
regarded as a constant and continuous union and conjunction of Sharir, Indriya, Satva and Atma. These four components of Ayu interplay to keep the human body functional. The
synonyms of Ayu are Nityaga, Dhari, Jeevitam and Anubandha. Nityaga signifies continuation of consciousness. Dhari means the factor that prevents the body from decay.
Jeevitam represents the act of keeping alive. Anubandha means which transmigrates from one body to another. According to Ayurveda, One whose physiological functions
(doshas), metabolism (agni), body tissues (dhatus) and excretory functions (malas) are in a state of equilibrium along with cheerful mind, clarity of intellect and contented senses is
said to be established in oneself (swastha). Health or swasthya is therefore defined by Ayurveda as a state of equilibrium, of body & mind. It is state of equilibrium of normal
anatomical, biological, physiological, mental and spiritual well-being. Hence Sama (balanced) state of dhatu, dosha, Agni, and mala is the reflection of Homeostasis in Ayurveda. In
holistic approach of Ayurveda, the body, mind and soul are the subjects of consideration. Holistic approach in medical practice enables upholding all aspects of people’s needs as
a whole. I.e. Psychological, physical and social aspects.
Health is not static but a dynamic state that is continually changing as a person adapts himself to the variations in the external and internal environments to maintain a state of
physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being. The holistic approach in Ayurveda focuses on integrated well-being of an individual by addressing all dimensions of
