Charaka Samhitha (Treatise on Medicine), Susrutha Samhitha (Treatise on Surgery) and Ashtangasamgraha (Treatise on the basic principles) are considered to be the three major treatises in Ayurveda. Other treatises written between 9th and 16th century AD include Sharangadhara Samhita (Treatise on Ayurvedic Recipes), Bhavaprakasha (History and classifications) and Madhava Nidana (Treatise on Diagnosis). Ayurveda advocates that every living and non-living being has five basic elements (Pancha Maha Bhoothas) within them namely earth, water, fire, air and ether which manifest itself in the human body as Vatha, Pitha and Kabha (or the Tridoshas). Air and ether form the Vatha principle, fire the Pitha principle and earth and water the Kapha principle. Every human being has his Prakruti (constitutional nature) determined by the dominance of bodily bio-elements Vatha, Pitha or Kabha or their combinations. Harmony in Prakruthi indicates good health. The cause of a disease is diagnosed and treatment prescribed by monitoring the Tridoshas, Dhatus (that which supports the body functions), Malas (the metabolic bi-products formed in the body), Agni (which is responsible for metabolism) and the Prakruti of the patient. The outcome of an Ayurveda treatment is ideal health, a relaxed mind and rejuvenated body which is achieved by gaining balance in the Prakruti
