Learn Your Body Type With the Ayurveda Test

By April 29, 2015No Comments

While we here at Optimal Wellness are 100% more than happy to help you here at our location figure out exactly what your elemental constitution and Dosha are, we also understand that you are busy people with many things to do through the day!

So use this test as a great starting tool to familiarize yourself with your body from an Ayurveda standpoint.

The key to Ayurvedic healing is in the understanding of each
individual’s unique elemental constitution.  This allows Ayurveda to
treat each person’s unique health situation in the appropriate,
applicable and compassionate ways that address their deepest individual
health needs.  Unlike other medical models which prescribe the same
remedy for the masses, Ayurveda recognizes each individual’s unique
personal balance.  By identifying the elemental proportions of each
individual Ayurveda facilitates the selection of not only the proper
herbal remedies they require but also the ideal diet, exercise and daily
rhythms which together promote the balanced lifestyle necessary for
optimal health.

categorizes the elemental balance of individual humans, animals, plants
and even minerals much in the same way that modern chemistry analyses
the elemental composition of various substances through the periodic
table of elements.  Ayurveda, however, uses a much simpler and efficient
model based on the archetypical energies of the 5 great elements –
earth, water, fire, air and space.  Once properly diagnosed it is easier
to view oneself as an archetypical elemental body/mind type, rather
than a chemical composite.  This helps you take your health into your
own hands by choosing the herbs, foods and rhythms which enhance your
personal balance.  To simplify and empower us even further the 5
elements are grouped into 3 pairs:

  • Space and Air combined together is called Vata
  • Fire and Water combined  together is called Pitta
  • Water and Earth combined together is called Kapha

These 3 elemental constitutions Vata, Pitta and Kapha are at the
heart of all Ayurvedic treatments.  Once you know your elemental type it
is simply a matter of discovering which herbs, diet and lifestyle
choices bring your constitution into balance by reducing excesses or
increasing deficiencies.
