Ayurveda and UMA Honor Your Individuality: A Fundamental Tenet of Building a Luxurious Life

“Ayurveda encourages us to honor our uniqueness and individuality on the path to well-being.” — Dr. Marc Halpern

Understanding Your Dominant Dosha (your Prakruti) Is Often The First Step

Ayurveda believes that three doshas, each based on their unique traits, contribute to your prakruti:

Ayurveda categorizes individuals into three doshas based on unique traits. –

Vata: Vata dosha represents the Ayurvedic concept of air and space within the mind and body. It embodies qualities of lightness, coolness, and dryness, governing various movements and processes such as blood circulation, elimination, respiration, and the flow of thoughts in the mind.

Pitta: Pitta dosha, the invisible heat energy within our bodies, expresses itself through our metabolism. It plays a role in the breakdown of food in the stomach and intestine, the formation of enzymes, and the release of hormones from the endocrine glands into the bloodstream. Pitta is consistently involved in these processes.

Kapha: Kapha dosha, one of the three doshas in Ayurveda, is primarily composed of earth and water elements. It can be characterized as steady, stable, heavy, slow, cold, and soft in nature. Kapha embodies the qualities of structure, lubrication, and stability in both the mind and body.

Ayurvedic practitioners use this system for personalized treatments. The benefits include stress reduction, enhanced immunity, improved digestion, and healthy skin.
