About Each Dosha

According to Ayurveda, there are three primary energies, or Doshas. The Doshas are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

These Doshas regulate all physical and psychological behaviors, from basic cell structure to the most complex mental functions.

The Doshas are found in unique proportions in every individual. This singular combination of the Doshas is called our constitution or Prakriti, and it will determine our basic physical appearance, preferences, behaviors, and emotional tendencies.

When the Doshas are in their natural balance with one another, our physical and mental states are at optimum health. When the Doshas fall out of balance, disease may manifest. Ayurveda seeks to return the Doshas to and maintain them at their natural balance in our individual constitution.
