This teenagers guide to Ayurveda isnt intended to turn you into an Ayurvedic doctor, but rather to provide practical information that can be used to improve your everyday life and health.
First take the Teen Witch Ayurvedic Constitution Test to determine your Ayurvedic constitution. This will help you understand how to apply Ayurveda to your individual life. Please take the test now.
Unlike Western medicines approach of one pill fits all, Ayurveda takes into account the major different kinds of human constitutions.
Most humans are a dual type, combining two of the three doshas: vata-pitta, vata-kapha, and pitta-kapha. More rarely, a person is a pure type: vata, pitta, or kapha. Very rarely, a person is equally balanced by all three doshas, called soma or tridosha.
When scoring your results from the Constitution Test, you are a dual type if two doshas are high scores and one dosha is a low score. If only one dosha is a high score, then you are a rare pure dosha constitution. If all three scores are about the same, you might be a very rare tridoshic. If you get a tridoshic result, please take the Constitution Test again in a few days, as it is unlikely to be the correct result.
