Isn't it time to get your Doshas in balance?

Alright I probably got you wondering what on earth a dosha is? Doshas are metabolic currents that drive our body. And according to Ayurveda which is an ancient medical system used in India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, there are three currents (doshas). Ayurveda is a health science, Ayur means life and Veda means science. Ayurveda links your personality and body type with what you need to eat, and an Ayurveda diet is frankly more about common sense than anything else, it certainly isn't about deprivation. For instance, some of the Ayurvedic guidelines are to make lunch your biggest meal (common sense). Limit caffeine intake (common sense). Limit alchool and sodas (more common sense) and the list goes on.

Do you know your Dosha type?

The three currents are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each Dosha or natural current is linked with a behavioral, physical, and emotional trait of your personality. Vata is air, Pitta: water and fire and Kappha: water and earth. The Ayurdeva diet is a holistic treatment to balance your physical, mental and spiritual health. When you have imbalances, even emotionally, eventually it will be expressed in your physical health as well. Ayurveda and the Dosha system is another great way of increasing your well being all around. After all you are what you eat.
