Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the three doshas or constitutions in Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine.
Vata is composed of air and ether elements and is responsible for all movement in the body, including the breath, circulation, and nerve impulses. It governs creativity, imagination, and intuition.
Pitta is composed of fire and water elements and is responsible for digestion, metabolism, and transformation. It governs intelligence, courage, and decision-making.
Kapha is composed of water and earth elements and is responsible for structure, lubrication, and cohesion in the body. It governs stability, patience, and compassion.
Balancing these doshas is believed to be key to maintaining optimal health and preventing disease in Ayurveda.600
