Knowing Your Dosha is Your First Step to Balance.


Once you determine your dominant Dosha – which is another word for energy or life force – you will be able to do those things that bring more balance to all areas of your life.

In Ayurveda there are three Dosha types. While each of us has a combination of the three within our being, one Dosha typically stands out. It is our dominant Dosha.

The three Doshas are:

  • Vata (vah-tah) – corresponding to the elements of wind
  • Pitta (pit-tah) – corresponding to the elements of fire
  • Kapha (kah-fa) – corresponding to the elements of earth

Further, each Dosha presents with different physical characteristics, emotional responses to stressors and personality traits.

The Vata, for example, is characterized as a creative individual, quick-witted and with a tendency to move a lot and be “on the go.” The Vata typically has a lean body. In contrast, the Kapha is slower moving and may have a large frame or trouble with weight gain.

Each Dosha has a preference for flavors and environments. Each Dosha is different, but can have a few crossover characteristics with the others. Therefore, when seeking true balance, you must know your Dosha. Only then can you address the imbalance(s) correctly so as to reduce your reactions to stress and avoid developing physical ailments and illnesses.

According to Ayurvedic principles, the end goal is to move your body and whole being back to its original, unique constitution (a.k.a., your prakriti or nature).

While yoga, meditation and massage may be a part of the approach to whole-health and healing, taking in the right nutrition and vitamins is of major importance. Herbal compounds that address all three Doshas (a.k.a., tri-Dosha) made from plant-based, organic, non-GMO ingredients can only help your mind, body and spirit come back to center.

When these specially formulated supplements – especially when in elixir formulas – are taken with a healthful diet and mindful exercise program, symptoms such as insomnia, digestive issues, blood flow issues, oral health issues and health concerns with joints and ligaments can be much improved.
