Tridoshas help in building energy & causes movement, which allows fluids and nutrients to reach body cells and allow them to function properly. Energy is needed to digest the nutrients in the cells, as well as to lubricate and preserve the cell’s structural integrity.
The Tridoshas is also known as Bio Energy, are the major and most important genetic variables that govern our entire physical structure and function. All physiological and psychological processes in the body and mind are controlled by these three energies, which are dynamic forces that help in our body growth and decay. The Panchamahabutas are the source of these bio-energies. When two elements unite, they generate a force known as dosha, which, like the components, is invisible to our senses.
What is the meaning of Tridosha ?
Dosha is the main term or the center of attraction for other doshas that is originated from Sanskrit meaning ‘can cause problems’.
There are three doshas of the body known as Tridosha’s: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The human body relates completely with nature. They are universal as the human body is made of Panchamahabutas (five elements) i.e Agni (fire), Vayu (air), Akash (space), Bhoomi/ Prithvi (earth), and Apaha/Jala (water).
When the five eternal constituents of space, air, fire, water, and earth come together to form the human body, three vital energies, or doshas, are created. These are the factors that control the body’s and mind’s psycho-physiological functioning. They help to build the body and keep it in a healthy condition of motion. However, when these vital energies are amplified as a result of inappropriate gross or subtle circumstances, the body-mind link suffers, and sickness develops.
The doshas ensure that all mahabhutas are held together and that their activities are carried out in a synergistic manner for the human body’s optimal functioning. These are forces or energies that operate within the body to keep it in a state of homeostasis.
What is Tridosha theory?
The Tridosha theory states that when Panchamahabutas combine to form the human body, these forces govern all our physiological functions by constructing our body and maintaining it dynamically improving our health. If when these doshas are affected by the stress or emotions that we face in our daily life then imbalance may cause which further leads to diseases.
Being in this world, the sun gets affected by the moon, we being part of the earth and the planetary system our body Physiology gets affected through moon and sun as well.
Tridoshas: Agni + Apaha =Pitta, Bhoomi + Apaha= Kapha, Vayu + Akash = Vata, so all the five elements in a body are interrelated to each other to form these Tridoshas.
According to Ayurveda, the balance of the Doshas, or body humor, Kapha, Pitta, and Vata- Tridosha, determines an individual’s health. While Vata Dosha promotes nervous system function, Pitta Dosha aids digestion by utilizing bile which helps in direct digestion and enhance blood circulation, while Kapha Dosha is concerned with lubrication, mucus, and the transport of nutrients via the vascular system. Ayurveda is based on the principle of Tridosha. It is necessary to comprehend the Tridoshas to gain a better grasp of Ayurveda and its advantages.
How can we manage Tridoshas ?
Health and sickness are determined by the quality and relative balance of these Doshas or energies. The activities of digestion, absorption, and elimination create health when these energies work in harmony, but an imbalance between Vata, Pitta, and Kapha is simply perceived as sickness.
They are proportionate in our bodies. If they are balanced then it’s a healthy life and one needs to have a balance of all the Tridosha’s. They can be balanced by climate, genetic, food, etc. Two doshas can be dominant and from birth, each person has a separate dosha. Prakriti is natural and Vikriti is developed therefore to balance these doshas always learn, apply, observe, acknowledge and develop yourself.
The Tridosha’s act differently in morning and night. We should always wake up between 4:30 to 5:00 am as this period is known as Brahma Muhurta (the last phase of darkness). The reason being is during this time the Kapha reduces and the Vata element activates, this time mind and body get ready to act and move. During this time meditation or yoga is the best way to practice or for grasping knowledge or for studies or anything that you are willing to do and practice for a long time. The dreams of this time it’s mostly remembered as Vata element of the body being active.
The three Bio-Energies, or Tridoshas, are the major and most important genetic variables that govern our entire physical structure and function. All physiological and psychological processes in the body and mind are controlled by these three energies, which are dynamic forces that dictate growth and decay. The Panchmahabhutas are the source of these bio-energies. When two elements unite, they generate a force known as dosha, which
is invisible to our senses.
Ayurveda is the science of self-knowledge. You can begin to understand how you interact with your surroundings and make decisions that will lead to better health by understanding your own unique nature or constitution.
Disease, according to Ayurveda, is the natural result of living in discord with one’s constitution and the imbalance in the natural balance of energies throughout our bodies and brains is our constitution. On the most basic level, it describes who you are. Everything from our bone structure to our health problems is determined by this particular energy balance. What we are naturally drawn to, as well as what repels us is determined by our genetic makeup. It identifies what is in tune with our nature and what will cause us to deviate from it.
Our Prakriti depends on the sperm quality of the parents, the parent’s ovum’s quality, Seasonal Health of Parents (explained further in the article), Dosha Dominance, Place of residence (Desha), etc.
Can you be all 3 doshas?
According to Ayurveda your constitution is formed during conception, solidified after birth, and remains stable throughout your life. It has an impact on your physiology, physique, likes and dislikes, dispositions, habits, mental and emotional character, as well as your susceptibility to sickness and imbalance. It symbolizes your body’s natural state of homeostasis and is characterized by the specific combination of Vata, pitta, and Kapha that you were born with. Understanding your constitution, which acts as your blueprint for optimal health, may be instructive if approached with curiosity and self-awareness. Our goal is to introduce you to your constitution and provide you with some of the tools you’ll need to gain a better grasp of it over time.
It’s crucial to understand that we all have Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas in our bodies. However, the ratio between them—their specific quantitative and qualitative relationship—is unique to us. As a tridoshic type, you have roughly equal proportions of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in your constitution, and you likely have a lot in common with other tridoshic kinds that share that primary distinction.
