What’s your Dosha or also know as your Constitution?
All (A) responses respond to Vata, (B) to Pitta, (C) to Kapha. Tally up all your answers. Most likely you’ll find that you have dual doshas, Pitta/Kapha or Vata/Pitta. Not so common you may even find that you are tri-doshic and equal or nearly equal in all three Vata/Pitta/Kapha.
Now what? Knowing your constitution is helpful in understanding how you tick and when you are not in balance. Imbalances come from our daily actions, which include, what we eat, our sleeping patterns, and our work and play habits.
Finding the right balance is different for each of us. If you found that you have a higher amount of Pitta in your constitution take a look at the Pitta reducing line of products from body oils to teas. The same goes for Vata and Kapha.
