If you are interested in delving deeper into Ayurveda, you have the opportunity of receiving a constitution determination. This makes it easier to learn more about your Ayurvedic constitution.
There are three constitution types (doshas) in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The constitution is determined during birth. Most people have one predominant dosha, but also a combination of all three. The doshas are based on certain qualities, which are composed of the five elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth).These elements comply with a person’s characteristics and also physical appearance.
If you are aware of your constitution, then it easy for you to adjust your life accordingly.Since Ayurveda assumes that not all foodstuffs have the same effect on everyone,diet plays an important role. This is why certain foodstuffs, which correspond to your own constitution can cause its characteristics to increase. For this reason these foodstuffs should be avoided, whereby others have a balancing effect. Not only the correct diet can help us keep a balance within ourselves, but also a particular way of life and our daily routine can help make our lives easier, as long as we have understood the essence.
