Just done my dosha quiz again on the Chopra test -

Vata - 42
Pitta - 30
Kapha - 18

and I still feel I'm more Vata - mental; Pitta - physical; Kapha emotional

according to the Chopra video today, my living room is right on for a Vata! My bedroom has a lot of red in it - but dark reds with other colours - so maybe that's a bit Kapha - and perhaps the bedroom is the place where my emotions might surface more easily. My kitchen is pretty Pitta - pale blues in there - so that seems OK for the physical. Interesting to think of colours in this way.

I have come up as tridoshic several times but not sure it is correct. I have imbalances. I should probably seek an Ayurvedic practitioner but for now, I am working on balancing all three.

I just re-did my dosha analysis on Banyan Botanicals - and despite feeling quite kapha with my cold virus, I still came out Pitta-Vata - with 50% Pitta. That feels about right. I still don't really understand much about the doshas - that will come with time. I do like the recommendations though.

Knowing what to avoid to prevent an imbalance is useful too.

That'll be interesting. It's complicated, isn't it? I have more or less settled on my lifespa 'diagnosis' which has me as pretty much 50/50 Pitta-Vata. I am more mentally Vata and physically Pitta I think. I hope I understand it more as I experience it more!

I ended up with several varying results as well. I’ve finally found a relatively nearby Ayurvedic practitioner to set up a consultation with and see if I get get headed in the right direction.

When such quizzes determine your Dosha is it a Dosha that is inherent within you, or does it change as you change?

Goodness, it's confusing!

Lifespa gets me Pitta-Vata

Chopra gets me Vata-Pitta

Banyanbotanicals gets me Pitta-Vata

I think I agree with the Pitta-Vata one to be honest.
