Body Type Analysis

Although every individual has the three doshas – Vata, Pitta &Kapha, each of us inherits them in differing proportions. This accounts for our differences in appearance, preferences, aversions, behavioral patterns, and emotional tendencies. On account of these differences Ayurveda categorize human into 7 basic body types. They are:

  • Vatha constitution
  • Pitha constitution
  • Kapha constitution
  • VathaPitha constitution
  • VathaKapha constitution
  • PithaKapha constitution
  • VathaPithaKapha constitution

The basic knowledge of the body type helps one to determine the most auspicious lifestyle that will ensure wellness and longevity: appropriate foods, herbs, exercise regimes, medicines, therapies, and even suitable professions. Knowing one’s constitution holds the key to health, liberation and ultimately, self-realization.

Body Type Analysis – Questionnaire

To determine your own individual constitution, you will need to evaluate yourself as unbiased, accurately and honestly. Evaluate as how you are; avoid temptation to see yourself as you would like to be. Give rating based on a long term evaluation (over a period of 1-5 years) than how you feel now. A disease symptom is different from a constitution sign and symptom. You may not be of just one Dosha; most fit predominantly into one and sometimes secondarily into another and rarely into the third.
