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*.
