How This Helps

From Ayurveda's view, the human body and all its functions are regulated by subtle, mind-body principles known as the doshas--Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata refers to the properties of air and space, and it is responsible for motion; Pitta has the qualities of fire and water and is responsible for metabolism and digestion, and Kapha has the features of water and earth and is responsible for construction and lubrication. Each of us is a varying and exceptional mixture of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.


What are doshas?

Ayurveda is a rich, historical, and living science that allows for an awakening into greater stability and balance. This online test will lead you through a process of self-discovery, query, and honest reflection through the lens of Ayurveda. It will equip you with personalized resources for you to refer back to any time, and personalized recommendations to strengthen your health - body, mind, and soul.

Your dosha makeup, or Prakriti, determines everything in the shape of your body to the way your mind, emotions, and body function. It's your inherent, unique nature. Understanding your Prakriti is pleasurable, as it provides you insights into who you are and why you react individually to the world around you.

Your Dosha condition of balance or imbalance at any time is called Vikriti. Vikriti is a picture of who you are in the time you take the Dosha Quiz. It might not change much from the Prakriti, but it is going to tell you where to place your attention. You may take this quiz to determine both your Prakriti and Vikriti--then use Ayurvedic diet, regular, lifestyle tips, and herbs to bring yourself back to equilibrium gently.

We're all born with all three of these doshas. However, it's the dominance of one or two of these doshas that defines who we are. To enjoy a balanced mind, body, and soul, or so the thinking goes, our distinctive dosha constitution has to be in a state of balance. When it is not, we fall sick. Learn what yours is by completing this brief dosha test.

Learning your distinctive dosha mix and understanding your constitution can reveal inherent natural strengths and your biggest challenges. When you choose the dosha quiz and make your Ayurvedic Profile, you will be given a comprehensive analysis of your own constitution, including a deeper comprehension of how it affects everything in your life, from physiology and nourishment to body structure and character. You will also be armed with herbal, diet, and lifestyle advice to keep your doshas balanced.
