What are TriDoshas?

The word TriDoshas is composed of two words:

Tri – means three
Doshas – means energetic forces

So these three forces are:


Vata controls the nervous system, respiration and elimination


Pitta governs digestion, catabolism, metabolism and perception


Kapha is responsible for biological strength and body’s structure, resistance and symptoms

Any imbalance in the three doshas results in diseases, which can be recognized by a variety of signs

Tridoshas regulate the formation of body constituents and excretion of waste products. These doshas change according to age, diet, constitution, mind, time and climate. Three factors lead to the doshas imbalance like misuse of the mind and body, influence of time, season and mismatch between sense organs and perception of objects.
