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).
urther, 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. The Doshas are unique, 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.
