Doshas are 3 fundamental energy principles that are found in every individual. Just like
everyone has a unique fingerprint, each individual has a pattern of energy- a unique
combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics which comprise their own
constitution. Ayurveda identifies Doshas as Vata, Pitta, Kapha ( since there are no exact single
words, we use the original Sanskrit words). These 3 Doshas work together to preserve health of
an individual. Ayurveda believes illness is caused by the imbalance of these 3 Doshas in body.
So, it is essential to keep them in balance for those who seek true health.
