What is a Dosha?
Doshas are the structural features of our bodies.There are three types of doshas and all of us have a portion of each one of the doshas within us. This is our unique fingerprint.
The three doshas are:
Vata which is the air principle that is needed for the nervous system to function.
Pitta which is the fire principle which directs digestion, therefore directing metabolism in the circulatory system.
Kapha which is the water principle that relates to mucous, lubrication and carries nutritionthroughout the arteries.
These three doshas together make up the physiologic constitution of an individual. People have a pedominant dosha, but all the doshas have the basic elements within them. Want to know what your dosha is? Check out What's Your Dosha!
