You have moved one step closer to greater health.

Was that fun or what?

The 5 elements come together to make up all matter, living and nonliving.

Each biological dosha energy, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, has a vital role to play in our health and well being.

Kapha energy helps to build up bulk in the body.

Vata is the intelligence behind all movement in the body.

Pitta is the intelligence that governs metabolism, transmutation, and the acid-alkali balance.

However “Vatas dosha body types” or the people whose Vata energy tends to go out of balance, are Air and Space element dominant. This leads to a much higher circulation than other body types.

Pitta dosha body types” are Fire and Water dominant, their Pitta or digestive/combustive functions are higher.

Kapha dosha body type” is Earth and Water dominant, their building up function is higher than circulation and digestion. Let’s see how all this comes together.

There are a total of ten body types, you already know the main three are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

And there are also an additional seven sub-body types based on combination types like Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Vata, Pitta-Kapha, Kapha-Pitta, Vata-Kapha, and Kapha-Vata, plus Vata-Pitta-Kapha, a body type where all three doshas tend to go out of balance in equal proportions.

This Ayurveda quiz might also reveal that you are a combination of more than one doshas, or imbalances, like a Vata-Pitta or a Pitta-Kapha. Double trouble!

Ayurveda Body Type Dosha Quiz Result: KAPHA BODY TYPE

A curvaceous Kapha body.

If you mostly picked qualities in option 3 to describe yourself, you are a Kapha body type.


This simply means by nature Kapha types have highly functioning stabilizing systems within their bodies.

Because of this Kaphas gain weight no matter how little they eat.

When Kapha displays a negative state of mind, they curl up in bed, they like to stay at home and they frequently catch coughs, colds, sinus infections.

Kapha people tend to be loving, loyal sweethearts; when the weather turns cold, they have cold hands and clammy skin and they are more likely to suffer from lethargy, sadness, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.

Think of a sponge soaking wet with water.
