How to Balance Health with Ayurvedic Medicine

May 24, 2018


Thousands of years before modern medicine, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, traditional therapies, and practices to promote wellness. The basic principle of Ayurveda seeks to balance the three elemental doshas of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha within the body. Otherwise, an inequality of the doshas leads to illness.

The ancient Ayurvedic medical texts emphasize the importance of a proper diet to balance the doshas using six major tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Take this quiz to find out your predominant dosha and how to balance health with the right diet.
