What are constitutions ?
There are three energy forms that are found in the human physiology. The biomedical terms for these in Ayurvedic Medicine are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. They otherwise go by the term Doshas, which means prone to decay and change. Every person has all three energy forms in their physiology. The way these subtle energies interact is what gives rise to your specific constitution. An experienced Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which constitution is dominant by studying the pulse, bodily structure, diet and other factors.
Everything on earth includes these three energy forms, based on ether/air, fire, water and earth and have an effect on our bodies. Thoughts, tastes and tactile sensation can have an effect on these aspects of energy. Learning more about these effects can help us to make better choices in our lives regarding diet, exercise, even climate to live in. The resources are unlimited and can be found within ourselves.
