What's Your Dosha?

An ancient Indian theory that health exists when there is a balance between three fundamental bodily humours or doshas called Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

  • Vata is the dynamic "kinetic" principle necessary to mobilize anything from electron to a galaxy. Air is the representative in an abstract sense.
  • Pitta is the thermal, explosive force behind the ability to transform everything. Sun is the representative.
  • Kapha is the cohesion that holds everything together with its electro magnetic and gravitational forces.

My dominant Dosha is Pitta :


Pitta Diet - Too bad a lot of my favorite foods are on the avoid list...cheese, yogurt, honey and cranberries.  I don't have a desire to give these up, in my mind these are all nutritious foods.

You have a quick mind, a gift for persuasion, and a sharp sense of humor.

You have both the drive and people skills to be a very successful leader.

Argumentative and a bit stubborn, you have been known to be a little too set in your ways.

But while you may be biased toward your own point of view, you are always honest, fair, and ethical.
With friends: You are outgoing and open to anyone who might want to talk to you

In love: You are picky but passionate

To achieve more balance: Be less judgmental of those around you, and take cool walks in the moonlight.
