What is a Dosha?
According to Ayurveda, each of us has a unique mix of three mind/body principles which creates our specific mental and physical characteristics. These three principles are called ‘doshas’ (Three Virtual Force). Most of us have one or two doshas which are most lively in our nature, with the remaining one(s) less significant.
These doshas are:
- Vata or wind is responsible for the motion in the body.
- Pitta or fire signifies the whole scope of metabolism.
- Kapha or water is the fluid in the body which protects, nourishes, and preserving the organism in the body
L’Ayurveda understands the needs of every individuals according to their dosha. Any imbalance in either one of the 3 doshas can be the verry root cause of all ailments.
