At the core of Ayurvedic philosophy is the concept of the three doshas, the vital energies that make up our physical constitution and are evident all around us. Assessing the balance of energies in yourself is the first step in any Ayurvedic program.

Only a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner can accurately assess the exact balance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha energies in your physical constitution; however, it is possible to get some idea from a simple self-test. We've included the test here to permit you to take the first step toward a more healthy, balanced future.

Remember, this test is not intended to diagnose medical conditions. Neither is it intended to replace an evaluation by a qualified practitioner. With this proviso in mind, then, we hope you find the test interesting and that it gives you some insight into your basic physical nature and your current physical, mental, and emotional state.

Ready? Then start the test.
