Over the past few months, I have been fascinated with learning about holistic healing and Ayurvedic Medicine. Originating in India, this health system has been around for thousands of years. In Ayurveda, your health is determined by the balance between your mind, body and spirit. My friend Nicole introduced me to the idea of living in accordance to your Mind-Body Type (also called your Dosha). I was not even aware that everyone had a Mind-Body Type, so I was very intrigued when she showed me the online quiz where you could discover your dosha.
Indian born, Doctor and Author Deepak Chopra, is one of the leading Gurus in natural health, alternative medicine and mind-body-spirit healing. His website, The Chopra Center, is where I learned all about the various Mind-Body Types and where you can find the quiz: Discover Your Dosha.
If you want to learn more about this type of healing, I highly recommend visiting this website, as I believe it is an excellent source of information.
The 3 Doshas
There are 3 Doshas, or Mind-Body Types that exist; Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Once you learn which of the 3 Doshas you are, Ayurvedic Medicine suggests that you use that information to inform your decisions on various lifestyle choices. For example, there are numerous articles that recommend what to eat, how to exercise, and even how to manage your stress and energy, all dependant on your dosha.
In order to understand the defining characteristics of each Dosha, I used the information from Chopra.com to create an infographic! Feel free to save this, share it, or even pin it on Pinterest.
Did you do the Discover your Dosha Quiz? Let me know which Mind-Body Type you are in the comments below! Do the characteristics of your Dosha listed above match your personality and appearance?
Through the Discover your Dosha quiz, I learned that I am “Tri-Doshic” which means I have an evenly balanced ratio of Vata, Pitta and Kapha Doshas. I was excited when the results said that this constitution is “extremely rare” and should be considered a gift! Let me know if you, too, get a Tri-Doshic result!
Hopefully this information will help us all to maintain balance, bringing us health and happiness for years to come!
