Aggravated Doshas & Qualities

Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances, showing you where your body is weak. Specifically, they reveal the doshas & qualities that may have become aggravated. If you notice a quality or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

Heaviness in heart area indicates one or more of the following doshas and qualities may be aggravated. Generally you would avoid foods and lifestyle habits that would aggravate these qualities:
