                                                               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

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • Dr. Gurnam and Pooja both are very knowledgeable and friendly. Ayurvedic treatments provided in the clinic were very effective, specially panchkarma. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking for ayurvedic and natural treatments.


    Shitanshu Thakur

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.


    Christine Medley

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.


    Suni Koshy

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏


    Inga Spyrou

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.


    Balamuralikrishna S

  • Treatment with very effective & refreshing natural therapies.


    JTO Nand Gram

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
