Dosha Dominant and Treatments

Dosha Dominant and Treatments

Single Dosha Dominant

In the previous articles On Identifying Attributes, if one of the categories (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) has twice as many checkmarks as the other two categories, chances are you’re a single dosha type. This is considered very unusual so you may want to check through the charts against when personal circumstances or seasons change.

Dual Dosha Dominant

Most people are in this category, Here you can identify strongly and fairly evenly with the attributes of two doshas and the third to a far lesser extent, Notice how one or other of the doshas may become dominant or imbalanced with the change of season or personal situation.

Tridosha Type

This is rare. If you identify equally with each dosha type, you may be correct. Check physical attributes again carefully. You might like to ask fora second opinion. Select treatments for skin, hair, and nails symptomatically; e.g., if the skin is cool, dry, and rough, treat for Vata. If the hair is red, straight, and oily, teat for Pitta. If nails are strong, square, and thick, treat for Kapha.
