Know your Ayurvedic body type – Take the Dosha quiz
According to the ancient philosophy of Ayurveda we are made up of the five elements also known as the Panchamahabuts which are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.
The combination of the 5 elements give rise to the 3 doshas (bio-energies) in our body known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. We’re all made up of a unique combination of these three energies.
The unique combination of the Doshas is determined in the mother’s womb and is your own personal blueprint, or Prakriti (basic body constitution that doesn’t change throughout your life. It is made up from your parents disposition and determines your main physical characteristics and emotional behavior.
All of us have some aspects of each dosha, but one or two doshas tend to dominate, informing everything from our digestion to our emotions.
knowing your Ayurvedic body type will help you figuring out a diet and lifestyle that are perfect for you personally and how to find the remedies that work for you. So lets take the quiz.
Answer each question as appropriately as possible, selecting the option that best describes yourself for most of your life, not necessarily in this moment or situationally.
