Did you watch today’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show? Would you like to know what is your Dosha, or Body Type according to Ayurveda? There is a great quiz on the official website of the Good Doctor which can help us find which category we fall in to and which sort of Diet we should follow to live a healthy life.
Thanx a tonne to Dr. Oz and his highly skilled team for having created such a wonderful and easy tool to help all of those who are interested in making use of this Ancient and Scientific system of Medicine and Wellbeing.
I scored 120 out of a possible maximum of 180. There are a total of 18 questions and you get 0 for Vata, 5 for Pitta, and 10 for Kapha.
Got 2 for Vata. People rich in this element usually have a small frame and have a lower body temperature. Vata translates to air and space = wind.
Scored 8 for Pitta. Medium built and a good muscle tone. Pitta means fire and water = bile.
8 again for Kapha. Big body and slower metabolism compared to the other two Ayurvedic humors. Kapha is water and earth = phlegm.
That means Pitta and Kapha dominate in my body and Vata needs to be increased. It would be nice to know how much did the readers of this blog scored and what’s their Ayurvedic Body Type.
Please do remember that this quiz is not an alternative to a consultation with a qualified Practitioner of Ayurveda. Once you finish the quiz you’ll have access to Diet plans for each of these three body types. Follow the plan and see a marked improvement in your quality of life.
