                                                               Ayurveda Dosha

 

Dosha Type 

 

People differ from each other in nature, body type, preferences, strengths and weaknesses. Every mannerism or preference is a sign of an individual personality. According to Ayurveda, these differences are known as Doshas type. 

 

 

Literally meaning impurity, doshas mean impurity which is the mixture of two elements. Doshas are biological energies which are made of five elements water, air, space, fire and earth. These doshas further help in determining the quality in a person, place or thing. 

 

 

What Is Dosha In Ayurveda 

 

 

Vata, Pitta and Kapha are the three doshas in Ayurveda. These doshas form the underlying principles which govern nature, transformation and structure of the universe. Each dosha is made of five elements-air, water, fire, earth and ether.

 

 

The combination of all these elements helps in determining the characteristics and qualities of each dosha. Every object which is present in the natural world is composed of the elements of vata, pitta and kapha. The relative proportion of each dosha helps in determining its uniqueness and differentiates it from other objects. 

 

Ayurveda Body Type Vata 

 

In Vata Ayurveda body type Vata dosha is more dominent which is composed of elements of air and space. Vata has qualities such as light, moving, subtle, cold, dry, hard and rough. It is the vata dosha which governs the mind and body. 

 

Ayurveda Body Type Pitta

 

In Pitta Ayurveda Body Type, Pitta dosha is more active which is composed of elements of fire and water. Pitta dosha qualities are hot, sour and sharp. This dosha mainly governs the transformation in the mind and body. It governs the digestion, assimilation, metabolism of food and water into energy and assimilation of thoughts and ideas into actions. 

 

Ayurveda Body Type Kapha

 

In Kapha ayurveda body type, Kapha dosha is more in power which itself is made of all elements of earth and water. Kapha Dosha qualities are heavy, cold, binding and smooth. This dosha is responsible for the structure of the body. 

 

 

When these three doshas are in balance, they keep an individual healthy, happy and free from disease. Excessive increase in the qualities of the doshas leads to imbalance. 

 

 

Ayurveda Three Doshas 
 

 

According to Ayurveda Vata, Pitta and Kapha are the three Dosha in the body. Also there are three states of doshas:

 

Balanced: It refers to the state where all the elements are in equilibrium. In this state all the doshas govern the body and its movements in a proper manner.
 

Increased: Also known as the aggravated state, it is the state where the dosha increases more than it is required for the equilibrium state. 
 

Decreased: When the dosha decreases to the level which is less for the equilibrium state, it is the decreased state. It is also known as the depleted state. 

 

 

Factors disturbing the doshas
 

 

 

Doshas can be disturbed by factors such as seasonal changes, mental or emotional stress, improper diet or lifestyle, environmental impact on the physical body, excessive exposure to computers, televisions and mobile phones.  

 

Guidelines for balancing doshas
 

 

Each dosha plays an individual role in the body of an individual. Overall health is achieved only by balancing the three doshas. Knowing your proportion of vata, pitta and kapha helps in understanding the ayurvedic diagnosis and treatment.

 

 

Some people also have a combination of the two or all three doshas. According to Ayurveda, the basic treatment of Ayurveda starts from making changes in the diet and lifestyle. Some guidelines for balancing the three doshas are listed below: 

 

 

Vata Dosha 

  • Avoiding raw and cold foods
  • Maintaining calmness 
  • Staying out of cold weather 
  • Following a regular routine 

 

 

Pitta Dosha 

  • Avoiding excessive heat 
  • Limiting intake of salt 
  • Working out during cooler part of the day

 

 

Kapha Dosha

  • Doing plenty of workout 
  • Avoiding heavy and oily foods 
  • Avoiding dairy and iced drinks

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.
