“The Three-Dosha Theory” or Tridosha are the 3-bodily energies that influence our physical, mental, emotional health, and behavior. These Tridoshas are Vata doshas, Pitta Dosha, and Kapha Dosha.
Ayurveda scriptures explain the effects in the body caused by the quality and quantity of these 3-elements according to seasons, diet, day time, and several other factors. Ayurvedic medicine describes these 3-bodily substances as Vata: Wind, Pitta: Bile, Kapha: Phlegm.
