Ayurvedic medicine has been around for over 3,000 years. The word “Ayurveda” means the science of life. This practice takes into account 3 main doshas known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
These doshas are present in every person, in different amounts. The different amounts account for different dosha types. For those with mostly Vata, they are considered Vata type. They have many characteristics specific to Vata type, and few characteristics of Pitta or Kapha. There are also 2 dosha type people as well as tri-doshic type people. Having more than one dosha makes it more important you know the 3 doshas. Balancing a Vata-Pitta type person is different than a Vata type person. You will use knowledge of both doshas to bring balance.
If someone is feeling unbalanced an understanding of their dosha type and some understanding of the other doshas will help them bring themselves to balance. It is very easy to Google search, Vata balancing diet or Pitta balancing practices. Knowing your dosha type will bring clarity and balance into your life, and in this case know more is better. The way I like to teach is so that people can help themselves and not need me. Learn more about yourself and use the guidelines you are provided. Ayurveda is one approach to help you understand yourself and there are others out there. Seeing as you are here, you should take the quiz and then Google more information about Ayurveda
