Do you know what your Dosha is? Are you Vata, Pitta or Kapha? According to theAyurveda in each individual there are three energies and normally one of them prevails over the others. The prevailing energy affects the person's constitution more.

Each of the tre Dosha - Vata, Pitta e Kapha - is made up of a combination of two of the following elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether (the space in which matter is contained and can exist.

In particular, Vata is composed of ether and air, Pitta is composed of fire and water and Kapha of water and earth. The combinations of these three Doshas are responsible for all the activities that take place within us.

I tre Dosha form our constitution (prakrti). Normally in each person there are two Doshas which are more or less at the same level and a third Dosha which is predominant. In rare cases all three Doshas are at the same level (in this case we speak of the Tri-Dosha constitution). When we are born, the three Doshas manifest themselves with a certain equilibrium and to feel good we should be able to maintain this original balance during life.

And our Dosha they are mainly influenced by nutrition, from the lifestyle, from our work, from the relationships we form, from the place where we live and from the passage of time.

Each Dosha has some features very specific. By analyzing and comparing them with yourself you should be able to understand which is your predominant Dosha.
