LATEST LETTER TO LISSA
I have taken the Dosha Quiz, and every thing that was said about a Kapha is true,of me. Yes I am a Kapha. There is just one thing that is bothering me. Is there a set way that Kaphas look, like hair color, color of eyes, and skin tone? Thank you for any information you can give me on this subject, would be appreciated.
Remember that we each have all three of the doshas in us, just in different proportions. So you could totally be a Kapha, and still have blonde hair and blue eyes, which would be more of a Pitta trait. Typically, Kapha hair is thick, dark and curly. Kapha skin is soft, moist and smooth. Kapha eyes are big and round, with thick lashes and eyebrows, and Kapha lips are big. But you can have all of those traits and still be another dosha. The dosha quiz I have on whatsyourdosha.com is a good guideline, and an introduction to Ayurveda. To get a more specific diagnosis you would need to consult with an ayurvedic practitioner who will ask you a whole bunch more questions, take your pulse, and look at your tongue and eyes. With this information, he or she will be able to tell you what your dosha is in terms of your prakruti (balanced constitution), and your vikruti (current state of unbalance).
Hope that helps!
