Ayurvedic Body Type/Dosha Test Under 5 Minutes!!

Do you know why some of us like salty food and others like sweet, why some like summer while others like winter? This is solely because of the different body types as per Ayurveda that governs our choices.

As per Ayurveda, our bodies are made up of 5 elements: Water, Earth, Air, Fire, and Ether. The combination of these 5 elements determines one’s Prakriti or constitution. Ayurveda categorizes the combination of these elements into 3 doshas: Vata (Air + Ether), Pitta Fire + Water), Kapha (Water + Earth).

The balance of these 3 doshas is what we call health. Any imbalance of these doshas leads to diseases. Everyone has all 3 doshas but one is primary, the other is secondary, and the third is least prominent.

If Doshas are balanced, we are healthy; when they are unbalanced, we develop a disorder commonly expressed by skin problems, impaired nutrition, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety.

Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are all important to our biology in some way, so no one is greater than, or superior to, any other. Each has a very specific set of basic functions to perform in the body.

That said, when the Doshas are out of control, our well-being can be damaged. However, before we get into the particulars of each of the three Doshas, it is helpful to understand their basic nature and their wider function in the natural world.

Each of the Doshas has its own special strengths and weaknesses, and with a little awareness, you can do a lot to remain healthy and balanced. You can use this series to adjust your lifestyles and routines in a way that supports your constitution.

    1. No one has just one dosha in their constitution—there’s always one dominant, one less dominant, and the one least dominant. So suppose if you have more a’s, less b’s, and least c’s, then you have a Vata-Pitta constitution as these two are more dominant and Kapha is least dominant. (If all a, b, and c are equal then the person is called Tridoshic.)
