Your Dosha Type Is:
Pitta > Kapha
You are a hybrid type, meaning both Pitta and Kapha are prominent in your constitution. Pitta (primary) embodies the qualities of motivation, ambition, and transformation. Kapha (secondary) embodies the qualities of stability, structure, and strength.
Pitta skin type is often combination or slightly oily in texture. This skin type is generally more prone to sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation.

Pitta > Kapha Diet
Pitta digestion is relatively strong while Kapha digestion is relatively slow and sluggish, so it is important for this hybrid-type to adapt their diet intuitively and as needed.
If your digestion feels relatively strong, this could be a sign of Pitta-dominance. In order to balance excess Pitta energy, prioritize light, nourishing foods. A salad with sunflower oil dressing and cooling herbs such as cilantro and fennel and herbal teas including lemongrass, mint or rose can help balance Pitta’s fiery properties.
If you are experiencing bloating or indigestion, this could be a sign of aggravated Kapha. 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.
Pitta > Kapha Herbal Remedies
Herbal teas including lemongrass, mint or rose can help balance Pitta’s fiery properties.
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.)
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. Pitta is associated with Summer due to their shared hot and fiery qualities. Kapha is associated with Winter/Spring due to their shared cold, damp, and heavy qualities. Because these are your dominant dosha types, take extra care to pacify these dosha types in the season they are governed by!
