Although each person has one or more main constitution, it will also affect the distribution of the three elements- fire, air, and water energy, due to various internal and external factors. For example, age, season, living environment, thoughts, mindset, emotions, diet, work, rest, stress, treatment, physical activity, lifestyle habits, etc., will disrupt the balance of  our energy.

 

For instances, if the main body constitution is KAPHA, when the three elements of fire, air, and water energies are balanced and if you follow the DO's & DONT's of your constitution to take care of yourself, there should be no major problem. You will be healthy and everything will be normal. However, once the water energy increases or deteriorates, the body is prone to symptoms such as colds, colds, sneezing, and allergies, and KAPHA may become greedy, possessive, and easily attached.

 

When the internal and external conditions of life change, if we have enough awareness, understand our main constitution, pay more attention to your daily lives and make timely adjustments, we can maintain the balance of your energy. In order to maintain health and balance, it is necessary to make a conscious choice, be aware at all times, and use timely actions to adjust the balance of air, fire or water elements.
