Ayurveda and the 3 doshas

In Ayurveda, different people with the same disease sometimes receive different herbal and diet plans by taking into account each person’s constitution and the imbalance. With Ayurveda, beneficial daily habits are different for each person, because each person is a unique combination of the 3 fundamental biological principles, which are called “doshas”: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Everybody has all 3 energies – although people experience each of them to a lesser or greater degree.

Kaphas eat slowly and have small appetites and eat many small meals a day and are the big snackers of society. They like pungent, bitter, and astringent foods like spicy dishes and green salads. But Kaphas especially like dry, crispy things. They rarely drink, and have one heavy and full bowel movement daily. They are not very active and must study repeatedly to understand, but will never forget once they learn. Therefore they often prefer repetitious jobs where little innovation is necessary. Kapha people in general are reliable, steady and slow. They are extremely compassionate, patient, loving and patient, often becoming the clergy of different religions and social workers.
