To understand dosha, the corner stone of Ayurveda diagnosis and treatment, think first of the more familiar Western body types: ectomorph (light and slim), endomorph (heavy and soft) and mesomorph (husky and muscular).
The definitions of the doshas begin with similar physical description, then add layers of information about emotional tendencies, intellectual style and spiritual inclinations, creating a detailed portrait of each type of individual.
Learning about your is like getting a medical exam and a psychological test at the same time. When you understand your dosha, says Ayurvedic practitioners, you can make diet and lifestyle changes that will help you live a healthier, longer and happier life – and maybe even achieve spiritual illumination.
“The most important thing to know about Ayurveda is that it treats the whole person, not just the person’s health problems,” says Robert E. Svoboda, B.A.M.S., an American who graduated from the Tilak Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya, an Ayurvedic school in Pune, India, and who now works with the Ayurvedic Institute, a training center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. “It isn’t just about clearing up symptoms or even curing disease. It’s also about
restructuring the content of a person’s consciousness so that he can be aware of the essential nature and meaning of life.
