In the Ayudvedic system of medicine, every human being is made of three energy types or doshas. These doshas are vata, pitta and kapha. The exact ratio of these three forms of energy plays a significant role determining your mental, physical and emotional traits. The doshas are a powerful tool in determining the natural strengths and weakness of your body. They help you to identify and correct imbalances in your body that results in illnesses. Paying close attention to the type of energy of dosha your body is resonating can go a long way in helping you cure a disease and lead a healthy life.

Dr. Naram explains that each of the three energy types – vata, pitta and kapha are important to your physiology. Each energy type has a specific function to perform in the human body.

Similarly, when excess vata drains out of your mouth, joints, skin or colon, it can lead to dry skin, dandruff, constipation, bloating and arthritis. Even in the neuromuscular system of your body, a vata disturbance can cause stiffness, numbness, intense pain, tremors and spasms.
