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 VATA, 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, if the air element becomes unbalanced, the feeling of restlessness will increase, you will be easily feeling fear, tensed, lost focus, and become negative. Your body may experience constipation, abdominal bulging, sciatica, arthritis, or insomnia symptoms.

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.

VATA 

You will remember that the Vata dosha is a combination of the elements ETHER and AIR. VATA is all about 'movement'.  It is known as the 'governor' because it moves everything in the body: breathing, blinking, nerve impulses, digestive tract, muscle contractions, heartbeats etc. 

VATA also governs feelings and emotions such as freshness, nervousness, fear, anxiety and pain.  The large intestine, pelvic area, bones, skin, ears and thighs are all 'seats' of VATA.  Therefore, if the body accumulates an 'excess' of VATA, it will accumulate in these areas. 

 

The primary characteristics of VATA are as follows: 

  • lightness 
  • dryness 
  • mobility 
  • subtleness 
  • coolness 
  • roughness 
  • clarity 
  • inconsistency 

 

VATA is associated with the TASTES of: 

  • Astringency 
  • Saltiness 

 

When VATA is balanced – you can think clearly, move easily and with flexibility.  If VATA is your primary dosha, you are quick to remember things (but just as quick to forget them!) as your mind darts from one thing to the next. 

 

However, because VATA is so light and subtle, it is the dosha that can be the most easily imbalanced.  Everything is constantly on the move with VATA, changing like the wind, from one 'state' to another.  As a body 'type', VATA tends to be slim, small eyes, dry and wiry hair.  Mentally, VATA is very 'creative' but the downside is that 'boredom' can manifest quickly. 

 

The characteristics of KAPHA can be distinguished from three levels, including physical, physiological and psychological.

Physical characteristics of Vata are:

Frame: thin (extra tall or short), light (difficult to gain weight)

Teeth: protruded, big, crooked, break easily, loose, needs braces

Urination: scanty, frequent, light in color

Elimination: dark, dry, small, hard, constipated

Physical activity: very active

Speech: fast

Pulse: thready, feeble, moves like a snake

Pattern of illness: nervous symptoms, chronic pain, anxiety

Mental ability: creative, restless, not sure of what he / she wants

Emotion: fearful, insecure, unpredictable

Dreams: fearful, flying, running, jumping

Healing means living in the present, living in a healthy, balanced, and conscious manner. Ayurveda is not a passive healing method, but requires everyone to be responsible for their own lives. The surrounding environment and the relationship with our individual life are perceived as a whole.

Remain awaken and conscious in every moment is extremely important, try to make "small actions, big changes" in our daily lives to prevent, restore ourselves, and achieve a healthy and balanced state of body, mind, and soul.
