Ayurvedic Body Type (Dosha) Fact Sheets
Why do Body Types matter?
In Ayurveda, Body Types (also known as Doshas) are the fundamental building blocks for diagnosis, treatment and maintenance for optimal health. Knowing your Body Type is the first most critical step you can take to get in control of your health today. Once you understand yourself, you can guide your life towards to the activities, foods, and solutions that make sense for you as an individual. Your Body Type is as unique as you are, which is why we look at your individual Body Type profiles and not just your overall Vata, Pitta, or Kapha numbers. Don’t settle for knowing you are a Vata, or even a Vata-Pitta; you’re a multi-layered person with strengths and various Dosha compositions in all the different aspects of your life. Understanding yourself is key to your ability to handle stress, interact with others and develop a unprecedented harmony in your life.
