The first step in applying Ayurvedic principles and treatments to assist in any health related concerns is to determine your constitutional body type (Prakriti) or Ayurveda body types. The Dosha Test questionnaire acts as a guideline to determining your constitutional (doshic) type; vata, pitta or kapha. However, to attain an accurate constitutional diagnosis it is best to consult with an Ayurvedic practitioner.
The questionnaire is divided into three sections according to the doshas: vata, pitta and kapha. For each statement choose the answer which is most appropriate to you and how you have tended to be throughout your life rather than just at this present moment.
After completing the dosha quiz, your total scores for each dosha will be shown; the highest score will indicate your predominant dosha. If you have two predominant doshas, this means that you are bi-doshic (vata-pitta, pitta-vata, vata-kapha, kapha-vata, pitta-kapha, kapha-pitta), and if you have basically equal scores for each dosha then you are tri-doshic.
Please choose an answer for every question.
