In Ayurveda, health and wellbeing is determined by your state of balance between mind, body, spirit and environment. Similar to conventional medicine, Ayurveda offers a typing system to help identify your unique constitution and what your ideal state of balance is. This typing system is known as the Doshas. Doshas are responsible for all physiological and psychological processes in your body and mind. Each of your physical characteristics, mental capabilities and emotional tendencies can be described using the doshas. Likewise, your vulnerabilities and susceptibilities to specific imbalances and diseases can also be determined. Understanding your dosha will help you discern the ideal foods, behaviors, fitness and lifestyle practices to optimize your health.
