YOUR BODY IN AYURVEDA

Ayurveda believes that the temprament of a human being is genetic in origin, directly related to the constitution or 'Prakriti' of the body.

Each individual is born with a unique body type, or 'prakriti', which is determined by the dominance of one or more of the three doshas. Discovering your Prakriti is the beginning of understanding the qualities of your uniqueness. Becoming familiar with these qualities is your guide to knowing how to best take care of yourself.

The doshas are themselves combinations of energy of the five elements:

    EARTH

    Solid state of matter


    WATER

    Fluid state of matter


    FIRE

    Energe that transforms State of matter


    AIR

    Gaseous state of matter


    ETHER

    Space of Matter to Exist

The three doshas are the manifestations of
these five states in the body


    PITTA

    Is a combination of FIRE and WATER. It is responsible for heat, metabolism, energy production and digestive functions of the body.


    VATA

    Is a combinations of AIR and ETHER. It is responsible for all moments of the body, mind, senses and the process of elimination.


    KAPHA

    Is a combination of EARTH and WATER. It is responsible for physical stability, proper body structureand fluid balance.

Prakriti or nature is not meant to categorise people, nor are any of the doshas better than each other. One combination of energy is never better than the other, each has its unique potential, vices and virtues.

The importance of knowing your body - type Vata, Pitta or Kapha is that it sharply focuses your diet, exercise, daily routine and other measures for preventing disease. By eating and adopting an appropriate lifestyle, one can have balance everywhere.
