Ayurveda looks at the physical human body as basic elements. These elements are ether, air, fire, water and earth. We all have these 5 elements within us to varying degrees. We need these elements for proper functioning of the body. To what degree these elements are within us is what makes us unique and different than others. These elements are paired up to create what is called a Dosha. A Dosha by its very nature fluctuates and moves depending on many factors. These Doshas are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
VATA : The Vata Dosha is made up of the elements ether and air. The qualities of ether and air are cold, light, dry, unstable, and mobile.
PITTA : The Pitta Dosha is made up of fire and water. The qualities of Pitta are hot, light, dry, unstable and mobile.
KAPHA : Kapha is made up of water and earth and is the most stable of the three Doshas. The qualities of Kapha are cold, heavy and stable.
