Ayurvedic medicine is based on the idea that the world is made up of five elements — Aakash (space), Jala (water), Prithvi (earth), Teja (fire), and Vayu (air). A combination of each element results in three doshas, known as Vata, Kapha, and pitta. These doshas are forming for a person’s physiological, mental, and emotional health. A person has a unique ratio of each dosha, usually with one standing out more than the others. The ratio of dosha’s is a unique constitution for each person. It is believed that our main dosha is inherited from our parents. An Ayurvedic Practitioner can help to determine your dosha.
