As a tri-doshic system, Ayurveda is based on knowing your mind-body type, or dosha. The three doshas are Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. Once you know your type you can steer yourself towards consuming the foods and living the lifestyle that not only keep your body, mind, and sexy spiritual self in balance, but also ward off brewing illness and disease. Pretty incredible, right?
You can discover your mind-body type by taking my dosha quiz or contact me to schedule your free 15-minute consultation. Even if you haven’t figured out your dosha yet, you can get started today by building your very own Ayurvedic Pantry.
The Scoop on Ayurveda:
Often called the mother of all healing, Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old health system that has survived this long because it works. In fact, as more and more people search for sustainable solutions to long-lasting health concerns, Ayurveda is seeing a massive resurgence of interest. Similar to the popularization of Yoga in the Western world, Ayurveda appears to be following this path as many are already seeing the powerful difference this wise medicine can provide.
Recently, Ayurveda has been brought to mainstream attention by authors such as Dr. Claudia Welch, Deepak Chopra, MD and Andrew Weil, MD who have shed light not only on the benefits for relief of chronic disease but also for preventing illness and promoting longevity.
Ayurveda is a science of self-awareness. When you are aware of your basic nature, or Ayurvedic constitution, you can begin to make meaningful changes in your lifestyle, environment, and diet to lead you to more vibrant, full health.
You can also know of any health challenges you are predisposed to in order to make steps towards prevention. According to Ayurveda, disease is the result of living out of harmony with one’s constitution. Your constitution is the unique make-up of qualities within your mind and body.
The proportion of qualities stays the same from conception throughout your life. It is by identifying your constitution that you can understand who you are at the most elementary level. Since each of us has a different mix of qualities, Ayurveda understands that the path to optimal health is distinct for each unique individual.
As a holistic healing system with a profound philosophical and spiritual background, Ayurveda is largely based on the tri-doshic system. Tri-dosha defines the three fundamental doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) which govern the function of our bodies.
These three doshas are composed of the 5 elements: Air, Space, Fire, Water, Earth. Ether and air together constitute Vata; fire and water, Pitta; and water and earth, Kapha. You may be predominant in one dosha, or a mixture of two or more.
