Ayurveda is a centuries-old science, a way of living, and also an indicator that shows how to live your life. Originated from India, this science has ruled the world when we Indians have always failed to find the importance of living life as per ayurvedic principles. Quite often we remain gobsmacked to see the intensity of the belief that the foreigners show in our Yoga, Ayurveda, and chakras. Hence we never bothered to check our doshas or live as per this. To enable us to understand our Dosha and incorporate it into our lives, we have presented a Dosha Quiz, an Ayurveda way of quotation on a healthy lifestyle.
Dosha Quiz – Ayurveda’s quotation on a healthy lifestyle
According to Ayurveda, there are three types of Doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha
Vata is associated with ether and air. Imbalance in Vata dosha can create anxiety, constipation, etc. In order to balance /Vata we need to ingest foods that increase Pitta and Kapha. Floor exercises are the best for Vata imbalance. Keep yourself well hydrated and eat more protein and fat-rich food.
Pitta is characterized by fire and water. It controls the endocrine, metabolic and digestive systems. An imbalance causes anger issues, restlessness, and skin diseases. Since the predominant element is fire, shower in cold water and stays near water bodies to balance Pitta. Avoid hot, spicy, and fermented foods as these may heat the body even more. Coconut water, sweet fruits, etc are good for Pitta imbalance.
The elements of Kapha are water and earth. The imbalance of Kapha causes respiratory diseases, obesity, etc. Plenty of exercise and mindful activities like meditation and exercise are good for Kapha imbalance. Avoid oily, fatty, and dense carb foods. Eat raw fruits, vegetables, etc.
