The Doshas

According to Ayurveda, when the 5 elements combine, Ether with Air, Fire with Water, and Earth with Water, the tridosha is formed. The doshas (tridosha) are particular patterns of energy that create our unique physical, emotional, and mental being.

These three doshas are present in everyone and everything. Within our bodies, the doshas combine to give us a predominance of usually one or two of the doshas, although, all of the doshas are present within us at all times.
