Ayurveda: Everything You Should Know About Vata, Pitta or Kapha

Ayurved has its deep roots in India, as India is the origin of ayurveda. From ancient ages, Ayurveda has gained its importance and now is recognized also at international level. Many researches have proved that Ayurveda is one of the best forms of treatment. There are 3 doshas in Ayurveda are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. They are also known as regulating forces of nature.

Doshas are described as three fundamental principles operating in outer nature, but they also penetrate human nature and thus regulate psychological processes. If you know the doshas of a person, you probably know everything about the person’s spiritual as well as physical characteristics like constitution, temperament, likes and dislikes, dietary and many more. The three dishes are made up of five elements- Vata comprises air and space, Pitta comprises fire and water, and Kapha water and earth.

The ancient vedic texts describe a home location for each dosha, although the doshas are present everywhere in the body. The Ashtanga Hridayam, Sutrasthan 1:7 says that

Vata is mainly found below the navel, Pitta mainly between navel and heart, and Kapha above the heart.
