Learning about your Ayurvedic body type, or dosha, is essential to knowing what kinds of foods balance your physical and mental constitution.

Balancing your dosha is key to boosting your immune system and preventing undigested toxins from food. Ama, toxins caused by undigested food, is believed to be the root cause of all disease.

We recommend creating your Ayurvedic profile with Banyan Botanicals, as they carry great Ayurvedic products that are dosha-specific.
