Dosha's Test

Dosha's Test

The Doshas are the vital forces that are found in all things, and according to whether they are in balance or not, the state of health or illness will occur.

The Doshas are three; Vata, Pita and Kapha. The Knowledge of your corporal constitution or Prakriti, serves to know what habits it would be advisable that you begin to adopt, to be healthier.

In this questionnaire of 31 questions, you will be able to know your Prakriti or mind-body constitution. This one, is only orientative, but it can help you to know which is your dominate dosha. The most common is a bi-doshica constitution, with predominance in two types of doshas. The answers indicate whether it is Vatta (V), Pitta (P) or Kapha (K). The result tells you what proportion of the three Doshas has your Praktiri.

Once you know the result, you can find on the page those habits, both food and routines more favorable for each Dosha. We recommend that, before making an assessment, you adequately inform yourself about the Doshas and the science of Ayurveda. In case of illness, or bothersome symptoms, we recommend consulting a specialist.
