The practice of Ayurvedic medicine dates back over 5000 years in India. Ayurveda means "the science of life". This ancient healing art recognizes the delicate and dynamic interplay between the body, mind, spirit and environment. A balance of the energies that govern these results in vitality and health. The doshas, or mind and body types, are vata, pitta, and kapha. All three doshas are present to some degree in each person, with one dosha usually being more dominant than the others.
Kapha Dosha The Kapha Dosha:
The Kapha dosha is characterized by loyalty, a strong and large physique, a strong appetite, oily skin, easy-going nature, and discomfort in damp environments.

The Pitta dosha is characterized by a medium physique, sharp mind, strong focus, competitiveness, strong appetite, good leadership abilities, and a dominant personality. Imbalance in a pitta person manifests as irritability, increases in body heat, discomfort in warm weather, excessive perspiration, and a tendency towards the premature thinning of hair.
