I am Kapha in body and Vata in mind. This very much makes sense to me and certainly gives me a little bit of a starting place when assessing where I should start making changes and what changes I should make.
I used an online quiz at http://doshaquiz.chopra.com/

Based only on the self-analysis chapter in Dr. Robert Svoboda's book, Prakriti, I came up 2/3 Vata and 1/3 Kapha. I found out that metro Pittsburgh has an Ayurvedic clinic, however, and I'm considering going in for a more professional assessment and dietary regimen. Two years ago, I lost over 50 pounds using an Isagenix protein-shake regimen and radically changing my eating habits. I've managed to keep most of that weight off, and I was able to stop taking most of my prescription medications. What I've read about an Ayurvedic diet suggests that no matter what my Dosha, I will be making further adjustments to my eating habits.

Mindful movement is a form of prayer.

I have taken several different tests Including Dr. Oz, Deepak Chopra's and Whats your Dosha and they all come out Pitta-Vata or Vata-Pitta. At one point I was pure Vata years ago when I tried the quiz in the Perfect Health book but I guess time changes some things...

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.

I've taken several quizzes on several different sites and in books and always come out Kapha. I try to eat a Kapha-pacifying diet per the instructions in Ayurvedic Cooking for Self-Healing by Dr. Vasant and Mrs. Usha Lad.

I've been diagnosed by an Ayurvedic Vaidya: Kapha-Pitta. Taking the quizzes baffled me. It was difficult to choose answers some of the time!

That is so good, LADYBUGWINS.
To bring yourself forward is so exciting!
If you do not mind, could you post which herbs help with the Pitta digestive fire?

I am basically a Kapha, but when I am out of balance it is Vata that I have to pacify

I always thought I was Kapha and Vata based on the surveys in books and online, but then I started seeing an Ayurvedic Doctor. She said I did have a number of Vata related disorders (neuralgia, paralysis, arthritis, etc), but that my actual dosha was Pitta-Kapha. Although, with treatment my dosha is actually being revealed more clearly.

I would have never guessed I was Pitta at all. I was always cold, fatigued, etc. However, as I have taken the herbs and worked the other parts of the program, my true self is being revealed more and more. I guess I just looked at the imbalance and never really at who I was before I "got sick." I'll have to wait and see in a year where I end up...the herbs and such are helping my acidic stomach and the rest of the things are clearing up as a result.

emoticon Hi! I am really starting on the ayurvedic path and have found it to be very helpful. I hope we can continue to explore this path together. I am almost totally Pitta with a bit of Vata and only a slight touch of Kapha. I have done Deepak Chopras quizzes online and with his book, plus ones from other sources in several other places.
Thank you ENIGMAWITHFLOWR for the link . I have found the Pitta-Vata Food Guideline and run it off. Anyone else who would like a link to this food guide, here it is:

I am tri-doshic, although a little more kapha. When I am out of balance, it is usually vata that is out of balance.

Taken several quizzes...always predominately pitta or pitta/kapha. I like the quiz on Deepak Chopra's website, part one identifies your dosha, and part two identifies where you are out of balance. doshaquiz.chopra.com/

Vata-Pitta or Pitta Vata depending on the season. I have taken a lot of the online quizzes and they mostly say the same things, but I have also emailed the vaidyas at a couple of sites and they said the same.

In Ayurveda, there are three distinct body types, called doshas; Kapha, Pitta, and Vata. All three are present within us, but usually we have an imbalance that makes one more prominent. If we are overweight, most people will assume that we are Kapha, as Kaphas tend to be overweight, but it is not necessarily so. What dosha are you, and what quiz did you take to find out?

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
