What are the principles of Ayurveda?

Everything in physical form has three attributes: a physical structure, a purpose or function, and a means that relates the two to each other. In terms of Vedic Science, these principles are referred to as the Vayu (cause), Agni (means) and Soma (effect).

In the body, the balance between these three principles in the form of the Doshas is responsible for creating, maintaining or destroying health.
