Your primary dosha is Vata
Vata is the elements of Air and Ether, the energy of movement.
Vata is intimately related to our vital essence, known as Prana. Prana is necessary to maintain life function. This energy governs the nervous system, breath, and all movement in the body.
Qualities of Vata are cold, dry, mobile, dispersing, and rough. Vata types are usually (but not always) more slender with dry hair and skin, cold hands and feet, and cracking joints.
Vatas are the movers, the creative thinkers, and the globe wanders. They have vivid and colorful imaginations that play well in their dreams. Vatas love to expand their perspective and are very adaptable to their environment. Vatas are truly the ebb and flow of life, trusting whatever the universe brings.
Because of their constant need for changeability, Vatas struggle with grounding and stability. They get bored easily and are always seeking stimulation and activity. If they are not careful, this hyperactivity and restlessness can lead to "burn-out" and chronic fatigue. A Vata individual may have poor memory and a tendency to forget and misplace things.
When Vata is in balance, they promote creativity and flexibility, and evoke feelings of freshness, happiness, lightness, and joy. Out of balance, Vata produces fear, nervousness, anxiety, and even tremors or spasms. Imbalances will also reside in the colon, so constipation is a large indicator of excess Vata. In women of reproductive age, excess Vata could result in light, scanty periods, a long monthly cycle (32 + days) while sometimes skipping a month or having no period at all.
Vata types love to spark curious wonder. They are clairvoyant and open-minded. Vata's sattvic nature teaches us the importance of living life in inspiration, to shine our radiance fully and unapologetically.
Your primary dosha is Pitta.
Pitta is the elements fire and water- the energy of transformation. It regulates metabolism, digestion, and absorption both physically (food into energy) and mentally (experiences into knowledge/wisdom).
Qualities of Pittas are hot, sharp, light, oily, and pungent.
Pittas are medium build with sharp features and penetrating eyes. Their skin is smooth, oily, and warm. They have no problem gaining muscle and have a strong metabolism. Their strong digestion can lead to intense "hangry" emotions and this hunger can be unbearable at times. When out of balance, Pitta types will experience excess sweating, inflammation, heart-burn, rashes, and acne especially if they are consuming too many pitta-provoking foods (a.e. onions, garlic, fried, sour and spicy foods)
Pitta's are the ones who take action and have sincere dedication and determination in any endeavor they pursue. Pitta types are well-structured and organized. They thrive in any work environment and love to be challenged mentally and physically. Pitta's are also night people, they become alert around midnight and love to stay up either reading, writing, or watching television.
Because of Pitta's fiery nature, they love competition. Whether at work, daily life, or an exercise regime- its all about cranking up the heat! They love to be recognized and rewarded for their hard work. Pitta's also have a tendency to be very hard on themselves when falling short on their goals, in which case, anger and frustration may arise.
Psychologically, excess Pitta results in comparison, aggressiveness, and jealousy. When balanced, they are determined, bright, and highly intelligent.
In women of reproductive age, excess Pitta could result in menstrual symptoms such as breast tenderness, constant urination, and irritability. There is also a tendency for shorter monthly cycles (24-28 days) with heavy bleeding throughout.
Pittas are charismatic, ambitious, and always make exceptional leaders. They are the ones who take charge in any situation and will always thrive doing so.
Your primary dosha is Kapha.
Kapha is the water and earth elements, the energy of structure and lubrication.
Qualities of Kapha include, heavy, slow, cool, oily, damp, smooth, and sweet. Kaphas are usually bigger build, with round features, and thick/oily hair and skin. They provide strength, vigor, stability, and give structure to all things.
They are the nurturers, as well as great listeners and supporters. Kapha's grounded nature allows them to speak and move slowly and intentionally. They are mindful and present with their actions.
Kapha's seek comfort and stability in all aspects of life. They are the "nesters" and their home truly resides in their comfort and being around those they love.
Kapha's enjoy indulging in sweets and hearty foods. When there is too much Kapha present there is a tendency to both over-eat and/ or emotionally eat. Kapha's earthiness can result in a tendency to sleep for long periods of time with varying moods of lethargy and low energy. They are more prone to mucous, sinus infections, and colds based on their heavy and damp qualities.
In women of reproductive age, excess Kapha could result in intense food cravings right before menstruation, water retention, and bloating. Their cycle is usually regular about 28-32 days with moderate flow. (Major imbalance of Kapha can lead to serious conditions like PCOS)
Psychologically, excess Kapha is responsible for the emotions of attachment, greed, and envy. When Kapha is balanced it is expressed through love, calmness, and forgiveness.
Kapha's have an irresistible grace and presence to them. They are grounded and rooted in the earth and embody the blessings of "fully being a human". Kapha's give us what we need most- the invitation to slow down, nourish ourselves, and to live in devotion through the surrendering of pure love (Bhakti).
