The Ayurveda Center | Discover Your Doshas
What is my Dosha type? How do they relate to my health and overall well being?
Ayurveda includes five elements
Earth, Space (ether), Air, Water, Fire
Three forces are fundamental to the concept of Ayurveda. These are the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. They are also known as a dosha. They are thought to circulate through the body and control a person’s physiological operations. These doshas can also affect an individual’s temperament and personality. These energies actively change in response to a person’s thoughts, actions, food, and environmental factors such as the seasons. Identifying a person’s dosha composition will enable him or her to take measures that will bring their state to balance.

Ayurveda seeks to maintain the balance of the dosha. Optimum health is claimed to be achieved when these dosha are in perfect harmony with each other. In contrast, negative health status is said to be a result of an imbalance among the dosha. An Ayurvedic practitioner can customize remedies and therapies to heal a person according to his or her needs and bring the dosha into balance.
