Your Dosha Type Is:

Kapha - Pitta

You are a hybrid type, meaning both Kapha and Pitta are prominent in your constitution. Kapha embodies the qualities of stability, structure, and strength. Pitta embodies the qualities of motivation, ambition, and transformation.

Kapha skin tends to be hydrated, smooth and plump with larger pores compared to other skin types. An imbalance in Kapha’s cool, dense energy can lead to excessive oiliness and dullness and increased potential for clogged pores and breakouts.

Pitta skin type is often combination or slightly oily in texture. This skin type is generally more prone to sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation.

Kapha and Pitta are prominent in your constitution, meaning that you are likely to resonate with the characteristics of both energy types.

In order to balance Kapha energy, seek stimulation. Be mindful of your sleep schedule (aim to get 6-7 hours of healthy sleep at night) and avoid napping throughout the day when possible.

In order to balance Pitta energy, it is important to keep your mind and body cool. This dosha type is the most sensitive to technology; power down your devices one hour prior to bedtime and avoid using your phone in bed to ensure a restful night's sleep.

Kapha - Pitta Diet

Kapha digestion is relatively slow and sluggish while Pitta digestion is relatively strong, so it is important for this hybrid-type to adapt their diet intuitively and as needed.

If you are experiencing bloating or indigestion, this could be a sign of Kapha dominance. Try to avoid snacking or eating when you are not hungry when possible and instead opt for well-balanced meals. Light lentil soup is a great addition to this diet. Drinking water from a Copper Water Bottle is extremely beneficial for this dosha type, as copper-infused water supports healthy digestion and immunity.

If your digestion feels relatively strong, this could be a sign of aggravated Pitta. In order to balance excess Pitta energy, prioritize light, nourishing foods. Try a salad with sunflower oil dressing and cooling herbs such as cilantro and fennel.

Kapha - Pitta Herbal Remedies

Kapha Pacifying

Try a cup of "CCF" tea (cumin, coriander, and fennel) before bedtime or a glass of warm milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric and a bit of black pepper (turmeric powder is a powerful digestive healer and all-natural remedy for bloating, stomach discomfort, and other digestive issues.)

Pitta Pacifying

Herbal teas including lemongrass, mint or rose can help balance Pitta’s fiery properties.

Understanding Your Dosha

The Vital Energies of Ayurveda

In order to be well in the practice of Ayurveda, we focus on balancing mind, body, and soul. Central to this philosophy are the three metabolic types or “doshas,” known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These doshas represent the fundamental energies that govern our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. A proper balance among dosha types is essential for creating harmony in these categories of wellbeing, as imbalances can lead to illness and disease. Each person has a unique ratio of all three dosha types and understanding your primary dosha will allow you to adapt the products, practices, and lifestyle choices in your daily routine to achieve holistic balance inside and out.

While all three doshas are present in every individual human, it is the ratio of each energy that determines your unique dosha type. If you are a hybrid type, two doshas are prominent in your constitution. These ratios can vary through life due to age, environment, and lifestyle. We encourage you to return to this quiz seasonally and adapt your daily habits and routines as needed to achieve optimal holistic wellness.

In Ayurveda, each of the four seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall) is associated with a corresponding dosha type. As the seasons change in your external environment, the dosha type associated with that season will naturally increase in your internal environment ie. your dosha constitution. Kapha is associated with Winter/Spring due to their shared cold, damp, and heavy qualities. Pitta is associated with Summer due to their shared hot and fiery qualities. Because these are your dominant dosha types, take extra care to pacify these dosha types in the season they are governed by!
