                                                               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

    Nakhat Shabbir

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues


    Marie L'eveille

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
