Character of doshas

Vata and his Vayus

In Ayurveda, the body is a biological combination of the five elements. When the proportion of the Ether and Air elements are in greater quantity in the constitution of an organism relative to the other elements (fire, water and earth), this biotype is called Vata or Dosha Vata.

People with Vata biotype have a light and thin body structure, unstable metabolism and hunger and tend to lose weight easily. Externally, they have dry skin as well as mucous membranes and hair and feel quite cold. Adaptable as air and creative as ether, Vata people are inspiring, possess a strong artistic line and, due to their sensitivity, become appreciative of the arts and spiritual practices. Agile, they tend to do many things at the same time, often dispersing. When unbalanced you may suffer from anxiety and depression. It is very common for people in this dosha to report inonia, constipation and pain in the body, especially in the spine, with a tendency to diseases such as fibromyalgia, diseases, memory loss, scoliosis and joint stiffness. Energetically, their body and mind work in sudden explosions, so they get tired easily.

Other characteristics of the biotype: enthusiasm, vivacity, excitability and sudden variation in mood, speed to acquire new information and forget it, tendency to worry and fear, sensory disorientation, vertigo, confusion and incoherent speech.

Herbs, diet and foods with spicy, spicy, sweet, nutritious, moist and heavy characteristics balance this biotype.

In the human body, Vata governs all nervous functions and movements. It can be found inside the bones (air and ether-filled porosities), skin, hair, ears, nerve functions of the brain, lower abdomen and colon, with the large intestine as the main organ of thirst and accumulation.

Attributes: cold, light, dry, clear, adaptable, mobile and rough.

Vata Vayus

Extending the study of Vata dosha, we arrive at the study of Vata sub-doshas, called Vayus, which are very important in the physiology of Ayurvedic medicine.

Extending the study of Vata dosha, we arrive at the study of Vata sub-doshas, called Vayus, which are very important in the physiology of Ayurvedic medicine.

1. Prana Vayu is the form of air in our body responsible for inhalation, mind movement, thoughts, feelings, emotions and perception. It has an internal and introspective movement. It coordinates the senses, the coherence of thought, the anticipation and the path of knowledge at the top level of Being. When we practice pranayama (breathing exercises), we are practicing the control of the prana that generates the ability to disconnect the mind and senses that lead to introspection. If Prana is unbalanced, signs such as sinusitis, respiratory disorders, fear, anger, asthma, migraines, fatigue and nerve diseases such as parkinson and epilepsy may occur.

2. Udana Vayu moves the air up and out. This energy is responsible for exhalation and maintains the health and vitality of the skin and skin, and is related to the thyroid and fifth chakra (Vishuda), linked to our verbal and existential expression. Problems with Udana also create imbalances related to thyroid and expression, as well as blocking, hyperactivity or underactivity of energy circulation in Vishuda. A great treatment for Udana imbalances is singing.

3. Samana Vayu can be found in the small intestine, and is considered the intelligence that controls everything in digestion, the intelligence of the intestine by separating what is food and what the body will excrete. On a subtle level, Samana, which also means balance, has the function of converting the Non-Being into the Being and establishes the connection between the top and bottom of the human being or the body and spirit. It is responsible for the feeling of hunger and is closely related to agni (digestive fire), as it stimulates the secretion of juice and digestive enzymes, as well as the excretion of bile. Samana imbalance is loss of appetite, indigestion, gases, inadequate assimilation of nutrients and changes in peristalsis.

4. Vyana Vayu is the Vata form that disperses air, is found in the heart, in the circulatory system and regulates the contraction and dilation of blood vessels. As Vyana spreads and controls the energy circulating in the body, it also controls nutrition. It relates to the ability to walk and move around the body and exits through the palms of the hands and feet. Varicose veins, blood stasis, slow cycle, restless legs, cold limbs and edema are some of the imbalances of this subdosha.

5. Apana Vayu has downward movement and controls the entire process of excretion of urine, stool and menstruation by the body. Nostesticles, prostate and urethra are found in men, in the womb and vagina in women and especially in the large intestine. It regulates renal function, ovulation and sperm movement and is related to fertilization. It’s still in the movements of the sciatic nerve in the lower body. In imbalance, it develops problems in the urinary tract and genital tract, such as urine retention, pain and difficulty menstruating, pain during sex, premature ejaculation and premature orgasm. Apana, is the force that is also responsible for the birth, coordinating the whole process of birth and the absorption of minerals by the colon (also related to bones and osteoporosis).


thirst for life

The health of the large intestine and the vitality of our organism go hand in hand, I would say tied up. Not surprisingly, the onset of all Ayurvedic treatment requires intestinal regulation. For the Ayurveda, the colon is the seat of the dosha vata, where all imbalances tend to arise in the other doshas. They start in vata, because it is the element that intelligently coordinates the other elements through the nervous system. Vata is the colon. When vata is unbalanced, it triggers a number of physical and psychological health problems.

In addition to being an organ for cleaning and excreting waste from the body, the colon has a complex regulatory system that supports intestinal flora. This intelligent set of bacteria is present inside and is responsible for the harmony of digestive, endocrine and immunological functions, in addition to working on the nutrient absorption process. A true intelligence center with a deep responsibility for the overall health of the organism.

The gut is considered a nucleus of psychic functions, with a 95 Serotonin, a substance responsible for the sense of well-being that occurs within it. When not balanced, it interferes with the ability to make decisions and symptoms such as instability, fear and insecurity, feeling exhausted even after rest, hyperactivity and attention deficit are common symptoms that are observed. Sadness and depression can also be linked to their imbalance.

The decrease in body health is deeply related to colon health and you can easily see that most diseases are caused by food irresponsibility. We know that the basis of harmonious intestinal function are the bacteria present in the intelligent anatomy of the intestine: anatomically the microvellosities of this organ are impregnated by millions of bacteria. The main disruptive factor of this internal order is the ingestion of toxic foods that kill these bacteria and allow other life forms, also bacteria, settle in the region, killing the “good flora” and transforming the intestine into a producer of toxins that will circulate through the blood system, poisoning and polluting the body and mind and causing the most varied disorders ranging from simple gases and depression to immune system. When this condition of imbalance of flora is associated with constipation, the toxic load that may be circulating tends to be even more intense, in addition to having the intestine ask for help from other organs that function as purifiers and excretors, such as skin and kidney where we see vitality and beauty, thus overloading other systems.

Pitta and her subdoshas

Ayurveda teaches that the intelligence of the universe is expressed in us through the biological combination of the five elements. When the proportion of the fire and water elements are in greater quantity in the constitution of an organism in relation to the other elements (ether, air and earth), this biotype is called Pitta or Dosha Pitta.

Pitta represents the combustion of fire. People with Pitta biotype have a medium body structure and good muscles. They have a fast metabolism, excessive thirst and a lot of hunger, losing and gaining weight easily. It is common to have bright eyes, lose hair early and have oily skin with freckles or spots. Entrepreneurial, intolerant, competitive and intense temperament tend to feelings like anger and inflammatory organic imbalances. They are questioned, tend to argue a lot and enjoy a good discussion with very sharp intelligence. As Pitta comes from the fire, the people of this constitution are fiery, with a strong personal magnetism, intense and passionate, and cannot withstand very high temperatures because they also sweat a lot. They react to the world through vision, and care a lot about the beauty of things. When unbalanced, Pitta develops inflammatory and heat-related diseases, such as gastritis, burning, psoriasis, acne, hepatitis and arthritis. It is very common to report frequent diarrhea, strong sweat odor, irritability when not eaten for a long time and intolerance to very fatty foods.

Attributes: hot, light, penetrating, oily, mobile and liquid.

In the body, Pitta is responsible for metabolism and all that involves transformation, such as the digestion of food. Its thirsty organ is the small intestine and can be found in the eyes, skin oils, blood, liver and gallbladder, sebaceous glands, sweat and in the stomach in the form of digestive enzymes.

Pitta’s subdoshas

1. Pachaka Pitta is the form of fire that digests things, a large oven present in our body represented by digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid, pepsin and intestinal digestive juice. It is found in the stomach and also in saliva in the form of pictialin. Pachaka Pitta is responsible for the central agni (fire) of our body (jathara agni), which governs digestion in the stomach.

2. Ranjaka Pitta is the form of fire that promotes color, is found in the liver and spleen. Ranjaka promotes color in all body tissues, skin, hair, eyes, blood, bile, stool, urine, etc. It is also intelligence that promotes the chemical balance of blood and the distribution of nutrients in the bloodstream, being related to the synthesis of hemoglobin, red blood cells and bone marrow. Disorders in panchaka pitta include hepatitis, anemia, chronic fatigue and high cholesterol. We can observe the imbalance of Ranjaka Pitta also through the sclerotic in the eyes: when it is yellow, it can indicate intoxication in the liver, as well as excessive anger, emotion related to this sobdosha.

3. Sadhaka Pitta means that what completes and fulfills (sad), is found in the brain, manifesting itself in neurotransmitters and in the heart as part of the plexus or heart chakra. It is responsible for transforming sensations into emotions and feelings, accessing information (memory, past, experiences) and self-esteem. It allows the realization of intellect and intelligence. Sadhaka Pitta It is fire that determines what is true or reality, being related on a lower level to the pursuit of pleasure and at a higher level with the pursuit of spiritual fulfillment. This mental energy is also responsible for the digestion of impressions and ideas. In imbalance, it causes loss of clarity, confusion and disappointment, loss of the ability to distinguish reality and fantasy, memory loss, indecision and heart problems. Understanding sadhaka pitta is an understanding of the entire neurochemical complex of our body.

4. Alochaka Pitta is present in the eyes. It is the form of fire that governs the visual perception that transforms the optical image into an optical sensation. The physical expression of alochaka pitta is called rodopsin in the Western biomedical model, responsible for generating visual momentum. It promotes the perception and digestion of light and clear perception of the mind and soul. It’s related to emotions through tears. In unbalanced signs, such as conjunctivitis, burning eyes, photophobia and confusion appear in the perception of things.

5. Bhrajaka Pitta is thirsty on the skin. It is responsible for the skin, shine and shine of our skin, processing the oils of the barley glands to nourish it. Promotes feeling of touch, pain and regulation of body temperature. In unbalanced causes eczema, dermatitis, acne and loss of tactile sensitivity.

kapha and sys subdoshas

Ayurveda teaches that the intelligence of the universe is expressed in us through the biological combination of the five elements. When the proportion of the elements water and earth are in greater quantity in the constitution of the body and the mind of a person in relation to the other elements (ether, air and fire), the biotype is called Kapha or Dosha Kapha .

Kapha can be represented by the weight of wet clay, pure and strong matter for all imaginable structures. Kapha biotype people have a sweet appearance, are loving, patient and very beautiful.

Externally, they have well-developed musculature, soft, pale and generally oily skin, strong and thick hair, nails and teeth and tend to accumulate fat in the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. They fall asleep quickly and sleep soundly and prolongedly with ease. With a low but constant appetite, they tend to seek emotional comfort in food, especially in sweets and, for this reason, tend to gain weight easily and become lazy and drowsy. When unbalanced, it tends to develop diseases such as obesity, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, edema and mucus in the lungs.

Aromas, spices, herbs and a diet with a light, dry, spicy, bitter, astringent and warm characteristic help to balance this biotype.

Lubricate the tonsils, epigllotis, vocal cords and mouth. It is the first kapha subdosha to become unbalanced. At more subtle levels, bodhaka kapha is responsible for knowledge, the ability to make itself understood and the refinement of feeling the pleasures of life. In the imbalance it causes the weakening of taste buds and the secretion of saliva by the salivary glands, weakens the capture of flavors (hence the need to eat more) and increases the feeling of attachment.

3.
