Supporting Healthy Vata Dosha

Supporting Healthy Vata Dosha

Vata dosha is a life force created by the elements of air and space (also called ether) and is often said to be the same energy as the wind. It is the main driver of all bodily movement and function. Without the energy of vata dosha there would be no movement, and therefore there would be no life.

Every moment of our lives, vata dosha constantly moves out of balance because of four things:

  • Eating the wrong diet
  • Following the wrong lifestyle
  • Excess emotional stress
  • Adverse climate

Vata dosha is constantly changing and moving toward imbalance. If we do not follow a proper diet and lifestyle, practice emotional stress relief and adjust to climatic changes, then vata will always increase. This is the root cause of many vata related symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation, coughing, body pain, insomnia and female reproductive disorders.

Finding Relief from Constipation: An Ayurvedic Approach

by Kottakkal Support June 07, 2024

Ayurveda identifies vata dosha, associated with air and space elements, as governing movement in the body, including elimination. When vata becomes imbalanced, its dry and mobile qualities can disrupt the colon's natural flow, leading to constipation. Additionally, weak digestion (agni) can result in ama, a sticky residue that further hinders elimination.
