Recognising that we too as human beings are a huge part of nature, Ayurveda describes three essential energies that control our inner and outer surroundings: movement, conversion, and our make-up. Known as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), these primary forces are responsible for the appearance of our mind and body

If Vata is dominant in our system, we tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. If Pitta predominates in our nature, we tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented and we have a strong appetite for life. When Kapha prevails, we tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate.

For each element, there is a balanced and imbalanced expression. For example When Vata is balanced, a person is lively and creative, but when there is too much movement in the system, a person tends to experience anxiety, insomnia, dry skin, constipation, and difficulty focusing.

When Pitta is functioning in a balanced manner, a person is warm, friendly, disciplined, a good leader, and a good speaker. When Pitta is out of balance, a person tends to be compulsive and irritable and may suffer from indigestion or an inflammatory condition.

When Kapha is balanced, a person is sweet, supportive, and stable but when Kapha is out of balance, a person may experience sluggishness, weight gain, and sinus congestion.

An important objetive of Ayurveda is to identify a person’s ideal state of balance, determine where they are out of balance, and offer interventions using diet, herbs, aromatherapy, massage treatments, and meditation to re-establish balance.

You will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire called a Dosha, when you arrive for your consultation which can help you and Dr Ashish determine which Ayurveda element is most present in your nature. You can complete the questionnaire here in advance of your consultation, if you’d like to. Please remember to answer as honestly as possible.
