Doshas In Ayurveda: What Effects They Have On Your Health

According to Ayurveda, the three primary energies of the universe are Vata (wind), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (earth). It also holds that the qualities of the body and mind are determined by these three doshas, which comprise each person’s physical energy. Though each person has a different ratio of the three doshas, one dosha is always predominant and determines your character.

How Does A Tri-Dosha Work?

Every dosha is in charge of particular bodily processes. Vata is the governor of all physical movements. It regulates breathing, the flow of blood, the removal of waste, and thought processes. Pitta controls the body’s metabolism and heat-transformation. It governs digestion, perception of the senses, and distinguishing between good and wrong. Kapha handles all the lubrication and structure in the body and mind. It regulates weight, growth, lubrication of the joints, and tissue formation.

Ayurvedic medicine’s basic tenet is that people are healthy when their doshas are balanced. The state of one’s body and mind can show balanced and imbalanced expressions of each dosha.

  • Vata: Attributes that represent the elements of space and air

When your Vata constitution is in balance and dominates your body type, you will typically be: Fast thinking, energetic, vibrant, enthusiastic, and creative

Vata becomes unbalanced when stress, lack of sleep, or exposure to cold weather disrupts the body’s internal movement.

This can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Anxiety
  • Desiccation on the skin
  • Pitta – Characteristics resembling fire and water.

When your Pitta dominant constitution is in balance, you will typically be:

  • Amiable and cordial
  • Objective-focused
  • Regulated
  • Perceptive (mentally)
  • Brave

In an unbalanced Pitta, which results from disordered digestion, you will experience:

  • Anger
  • Irritation
  • Indigestion
  • inflammatory circumstances
  • Ulcers and rashes
  • Kapha: Characteristics that represent the elements of water and earth

If Kapha is the predominant sign in your constitution and it is in balance, you will typically be:

  • Easy-going
  • Methodical
  • Nurturing
  • Patient
  • A sound sleeper

Insufficient mental and physical stimulation can lead to an imbalance in Kapha, which can cause the following symptoms:

  • Lethargic behaviour
  • Obstinacy
