The science of Ayurvedic healing is based entirely on the Panchamahabhuta theory, which states that the entire universe, including all life, is made from the five great elements: earth, water, fire, air and space. These elements form the three biological doshas of vata, pitta and kapha.
These three doshas control and maintain all functions of our mind and body and are contained within all of us. One specific dosha will always be predominant and knowing which one is important for understanding how to maintain your best physical and mental health. The key to remaining healthy throughout your life is knowing how to balance your specific dosha type. Ayurveda recommends a self-care routine known as Dinacharya for maintaining lifetime health.
Not sure which dosha is predominant, take our dosha quiz.
What does a vata dominant person need to maintain their best health throughout their life? Since vata dosha consists of the elements air and space, their characteristics are cold, light, dry, rough, flowing and expansive. Vata people are usually described as having a petite, slender body with delicate facial features and soft skin, as well as a mind that is energetic, creative and spiritual. Their moods are highly changeable and depends on things like the weather, people around them, and the foods they eat.
People with a vata predominance are naturally intuitive, imaginative and light sleepers. Their minds are easily distracted and it’s difficult for them to follow a regular self-care routine. However, following a daily self-care routine is the one significant thing that actually helps keep them in balance. Vata people love irregular routines and will often eat and sleep at different times. It is their irregularity that causes vata to become unbalanced. By following a regular dinacharya selfcare routine the vata energy becomes more balanced.

Our eyes are vital to our life, yet we often neglect to take care of them. Ayurveda educates on the importance of eye health and how practicing daily self-care helps maintain healthy eyes. The classical Ayurvedic texts mention in great detail the importance of eye health. There are many chapters on anatomy, physiology, reversing common disorders, and preventive practices to maintain healthy eyes.
