The 3 Doshas: Vata [air +space (wind, movement)], Pitta [Fire + Water (metabolism, digestion)] and Kapha [Earth + Water (lubrication, protection)]. Each Dosha and element has ideal quantities, qualities and functions in each individual. This is known as Prakriti or a person’s constitutional balance.

When the Doshas are balanced according to a person’s Prakriti, there is boundless energy, joy and well-being. When there is an excess or deficiency of any Dosha or element, symptoms of dis-ease occur. This is known as Vikruti or our current imbalance. Once a person’s Prakriti, Vikruti, underlying causes, diet, lifestyle and history are evaluated and understood, Ayurveda provides a literal roadmap back to health. Properly balancing the Doshas helps eliminate dysfunction and enhances health
