Originating thousands of years ago among monks in India, Ayurveda or the “science of life” is an ancient healing system based on eating the right foods and taking care of the body by following self-care routines. In order to prescribe the right regimen, practitioners first determine a person’s dominant dosha or energies present in the body. The three main doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha—correspond to the elements of air, fire, and earth, respectively.
Knowing which dosha is dominant can help you heal common ailments like emotional imbalances and digestion issues with simple practices like a change in the foods you eat. Discover your dosha by taking this short quiz.
