Dosha Test: Discover your ayurvedic type for health

EMBRACE YOUR DOSHA: Step into the world of Ayurveda and uncover the magic of your mind-body balance through the lens of Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth) — your unique Doshas. Each Dosha paints a portrait of your physical, emotional and mental qualities, guiding your lifestyle choices. Whether you resonate with the creativity of Vata, the heat of Pitta or the laid-back charm of Kapha: Your Prakriti, or natural state, shapes your innate characteristics and tendencies and shows you your path to health. Take the Dosha Test!

Why is it important to know your dominant Dosha?

Each of us is wonderfully unique, and that’s reflected in our ayurvedic constitution. This special blueprint within us explains so much – like why certain health issues might trouble us, how we respond to the world around us and even the unique quirks of our body and mind. I believe that healing and balance begins with understanding this personal constitution and the imbalances you might be facing.

Knowing your constitution isn’t just about identifying your strengths and weaknesses – it’s about empowering you to make smarter choices for your diet and lifestyle, tailored just for you.

Restoring health is all about finding the perfect harmony among your three doshas. How do we do this? Through personalized ayurvedic detox and rejuvenation, thoughtful dietary and lifestyle tweaks, herbal remedies and other ayurvedic treatments that honour your individual needs.

Prakriti vs. Vikrti

Prakriti is the unique blend of doshas we’re born with, a mix of vata, pitta, and kapha in our own special ratio. Life, with all its twists and turns – think changing seasons, different lifestyles and varied diets – can sometimes lead us astray from this natural harmony. This imbalance, what we call Vikriti, happens when we drift away from our doshic balance, leading to issues like bloating, skin troubles or even anxiety, and at times, it might escalate to chronic health conditions.

The true beauty of Ayurveda? It’s in spotting these imbalances. Understanding the doshas and their unique qualities lets us use our symptoms as hints, helping us figure out which dosha is asking for attention. Ayurveda teaches us to find our way back to balance using the world as our pharmacy – food, herbs, colours, textures, aromas, even our surroundings and the way we live. It’s about choosing what’s opposite to our symptoms for harmony, like cooling down for pitta’s heat or seeking stillness in vata’s whirlwind. It’s all about realigning with your unique Prakriti.

Take your Dosha Test

Take the Prakriti test and find out which is your dominant dosha! In my journal you will find more information on how to best balance your dosha and recipes to nourish your unique self.

Remember, we are not defined by our Doshic makeup – it’s a guide to recognising our tendencies. This ayurveda quiz is a little window into the world of self-discovery – it’s not the same as a deep dive with a seasoned ayurvedic physician, but it sure is a step towards understanding the unique tapestry of your constitution. So why not dive in and enjoy unraveling a bit more about yourself with our quiz?

For a comprehensive understanding, consult an Ayurvedic doctor (Vaidya) to accurately assess your Prakriti and Vikriti. I can highly recommend the doctor’s at AmrtaSiddhi in Ubud, Bali.
