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.
