Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics (gunas). Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance. By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick. Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold). You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.

HOT

DOSHAS
Dosha Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine, people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person. Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness. Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency. Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses. The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.

The 3 functional body types (doshas), are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha). Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy. They are easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy. They tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass. If they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. Anabolic people tend to be stable and grounded.

The bottle had leaked in the box, not a whole lot t enough to make a mess. Also every day I after using it I have to wipe down the bottle so there's not a big ring of oil on the counter. The oil itself smells great and feels great. I massage it in every day and it has helped my calf cramps and made my skin smoother.I would like to know if it can be used for oil pulling?

You could use this product for oil pulling. We generally recommend plain, untoasted sesame oil.

I apply this oil warmed to my whole body with gentle massage and focus on my feet, ankles, hands and wrists. I suffer from tendinitis and osteoarthritis. I then take a very warm bath. After bathing I use a dry rub towel to invigorate blood flow, and then rest under a warm comforter. I am feeling great improvement in my neuralgia after 2 weeks! Thank you!
