Thank you for taking the time to complete our quiz!
We’re in the process of picking the brain of our in-house vaidyas (Ayurvedic practitioners) to process your answers, so we can paint the perfect picture of the two dominant doshas (body energy types) that define you best and provide you with curated recommendations for your well-being.
Please do remember that your dosha quiz results are not a replacement for an official diagnosis by a trained vaidya, and there are chances that your results may be skewed if you are unwell OR your body isn’t functioning in a normal, balanced state.
However, your quiz results can help identify your dosha profile from a surface-level point of view.
The answers in your quiz help us understand how your body metabolizes (ingests, digests, absorbs, and adapts) based on your build, skin type, stamina, digestion, eating habits, sleep patterns, personality, thought process, mood, eating habits, lifestyle, and weather preferences.In Ayurveda, we call this metabolic energy, your 'dosha' which is unique to each individual.
From the moment we are born, nature creates each person with the three doshas of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, which are connected at all times.
Considering how inseparable they are, it is nearly impossible to assign anyone with one dosha alone. No human being can be one-dimensional in any aspect.
For that reason,
‘We are all a combination of two doshas.’This explains why you might have resonated with two choices over one while selecting your answers in the quiz - that’s quite common for most. This is because the two presiding doshas in our bodies are simultaneously asserting dominance to govern our bodies.
How does that work?
Of the two dominant doshas in your profile, you have a primary dosha and a secondary dosha.
For example, if one has a primary Pitta and secondary Vata dosha as their body type, if they are exposed to even a few causes that aggravate Pitta, they will swiftly notice the symptoms of Pitta imbalance, from increased body heat, inflammation, heartburn, anger, sensitive skin, and so on. The secondary dosha may become imbalanced (in this case - Vata) during its prevalent season of fall to early winter. However, the likelihood of secondary dosha imbalance often occurs after a long time and when facing more of its aggravating factors.
Therefore, it is crucial to understand which of the two doshas is predominant at any given time.Your dosha quiz results will automatically determine the most likely primary dosha and secondary dosha to identify you based on your answers. Every person’s dosha profile is a key component in Ayurveda to understanding what makes our mind and body remain balanced throughout our lives and how they are influenced depending on the seasons of the year.This is worth knowing so you can nurture and balance your body & mind using the most suitable diet, herbs, habits, exercises & intensity, detox routine, and overall lifestyle to get the best out of your primary dosha while keeping its downsides (imbalance) in check. As for the role of the secondary dosha, it is important to keep it balanced during the season when it is favored to increase.Vata dosha’s cold & dry nature is best represented by fall & early winter, Pitta dosha’s moist & hot characteristics are perfectly encapsulated by late spring & summer, and Kapha dosha’s cold & wet qualities are embodied by late winter & early spring.To understand the concept of doshas better do check out our videos by Vaidya Jay:
