Balance Your Dosha: How to Choose the Right Supplements for your Dosha
In lockdown, we might not feel ourselves because our lives have been put on hold. Spending a lot of time at home, we might have picked up some bad habits. Our diets might not be as good as they should be. It is time to take control of your health again by balancing your dosha. Dosha promotes the value of balance and how we need to keep things in proportion to achieve a healthy lifestyle. We understand that everybody is different, and so are our bodies. Doshas can be broken down into three concepts: Vata Dosha, Pitta Dosha and Kapha Dosha. If you can achieve a harmonious balance between all three Doshas, you will be able to feel more balanced and experience better health.
How to achieve a balanced Vata Dosha?
The nature of Vata Dosha is characterised by the movement of energy, which is often associated with the wind. People who identify themselves with Vata Dosha usually have a creative, flexible and free-flowing spirit. If you are Vata Dosha dominant, you might experience issues with being underweight, dry skin and experience racing thoughts. If you have an unbalance with your Vata Dosha, you might be prone to anxiety, stress and digestive issues. To relieve these issues, it's important that you practice good morning and night routines. It might be a good idea to practice some basic grounding meditation as well. Diet is important in achieving a balanced Vata Dosha and eating more root vegetables can help towards this.

How to achieve a balanced Pitta Dosha?
The nature of Pitta Dosha is characterised by chemical transformations, which is often associated with fire. People who identify themselves with Pitta Dosha usually are focused, intelligent and intense. If you are Pitta Dosha dominant, you might experience issues with heat circulation, skin rashes and acne prone skin. If you have an unbalance with your Vata Dosha, you might be prone to anger, overexertion and burnout issues. To relieve these issues, it's important that you practice cooling exercises like having cold showers and walking besides a body of water like a river. It might be a good idea to practice some basic meditation, massage and gardening as well. Diet is important in achieving a balanced Vata Dosha and eating more fresh fruit and vegetables can help towards this. Why not try our Transform & Transcend Plant Alchemy.

How to achieve a balanced Kapha Dosha?
The nature of Kapha Dosha is characterised by a stabilising energy, which is often associated with the earth and water. People who identify themselves with Kapha Dosha usually have a calm, grounded and forgiving attitude. If you are Kapha Dosha dominant, you might experience issues with being overweight, fluid retention and joint pain. If you have an unbalance with your Kapha Dosha, you might be prone to fatigue, low energy and lack of motivation. To relieve these issues, it's important that you practice mental stimulation, plenty of exercise and mindful activities such as meditation.
