Much like a snowflake – unique in form, shape & size – each living being has a unique blueprint.  In the Western world, and through modern science – we understand this to be our DNA.  In the East, it’s been understood for thousands of years, that all living beings are universally made up of the elemental energies (the building blocks of life) – Space, Air, Fire, Water & Earth.

These five basic elements manifest differently in each person, to form three life forces or energies making up their own dosha/constitution.  They are Vata (space & air), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth).  How these three doshas appear, and in what proportion in each individual – govern all physio-pathological makeup, including appearance, emotions and behaviours.  And since birth, every person has its own unchanging constitution.

 

 

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is considered to be one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing sciences – it’s knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago.  In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life” and is often called the “Mother of All Healing”.

Based on the philosophy that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, soul, emotions & senses – Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention. Its main goal is to promote and maintain good health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs.

 

With the help and knowledge of Ayurveda, one can create balance in body, mind and consciousness – according to one’s own constitution.

 

Know Your Dosha

Each individual inherits a unique mix of the three doshas, to make up their constitution.  Usually one is stronger than the others, but many people can find they have a combination of 2 that make up their dominant constitution.  A rare few, are known as tri-doshic – which is an equal amount of all three.  Take the quiz, and find out what your dominant mind/body dosha is.

 

When an individual knows his own constitution, then one can understand, for instance, what is a good diet and style of life for oneself. One man’s food is another man’s poison. Therefore, to make one’s life healthy, happy and balanced, the knowledge of constitution is absolutely necessary.
