DOSHA BREAKDOWN:

 Vata Dosha: 23 – 35
Pitta Dosha: 36 – 46
Kapha Dosha: 47 – 92 

Your dosha is your Ayurveda mind & body type. There are three doshas in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. We each have all three of the doshas in our physiology, just in different proportions, so your dosha is unique and personal; it is like your fingerprint.

– Each dosha is made up of one or two of the five basic elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth.

– Each dosha has a particular relationship to body functions and can be upset for different reasons.

– Each dosha is associated with a certain body type, a certain personality type, and a greater chance of certain types of health problems.

– A person has their own balance of the three doshas, although one dosha usually is prominent. Doshas are constantly being formed and reformed by food, activity, and bodily processes.

An imbalance in a dosha will produce symptoms that are related to that dosha and are different from symptoms of an imbalance in another dosha. Imbalances may be caused by an unhealthy lifestyle or diet, too much or too little mental and physical exertion, or not being properly protected from the weather, chemicals, or germs.

In Ayurvedic philosophy, people, their health, and the universe are all thought to be related. It is believed that health problems can result when these relationships are out of balance. The goal of Ayurveda is to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. This is believed to help prevent illness and promote wellness.

Developed from the ancient text of The Vedas, Ayurveda views the human body as a homunculus of our cosmic Universe, regulated by the balance between threeprimordial humours, call dosha.
