What´s the meaning of Dosha?
Dosha means life energy. Each person has an individual composition of the three Dosha energies Vata, Pitta and Kapha. From the relation of the three to each other, which every person receives from birth, the constitution and personality of the human being emerges. They shape the physical appearance, behavior and susceptibility to disease. If the original Dosha structure is in its harmonious equilibrium and normal state, the human being is healthy, resilient and happy. However, if the three energies are disturbed or in imbalance, a dosha predominates or a dosha is not taken into consideration, then this is the cause of physical and mental complaints of all kinds. This can include everyday problems such as inner restlessness, insomnia, ensure carousel, headaches or listlessness to be serious illnesses like diabetes, rheumatism or cancer. In Ayurveda, all these symptoms are considered to be different expressions of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
