HERBS & SUPPLEMENTS BY BODY TYPE (DOSHA)There are 3 body types (doshas) in Ayurveda known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Your body type effects both your physical and mental well-being. Once you know your dosha, you select specific herbs, teas, oils, and other products to restore balance! See personalized recommendations based on your quizzes.
How Do You Want to Search for Remedies?Ayurveda utilizes a classification system called Dravya Guna Shastra to match food, herbs, and lifestyle choices to specific imbalances for effective treatment options and alternative approaches. This system suggests that different foods have different energies, and consuming the right foods can help to balance the metabolic characteristics (i.e. three doshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) of the body. Dravya-Guna-Shastra forms the foundation of Ayurveda's pharmacology. The system of Dravya-Guna-Shastra is biocharacteristics based, sharing many features with Unani Tibb and Greek Medicine.
On Joyful Belly, we've integrated this system into the core of the website, to provide tools for modern clinicians. Please click on category below to see how remedies are classified under this system.
