What Does Tridoshic Mean?

Tridoshic refers to an equal balance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas. According to Ayurveda, an individual's constitution, known as Prakriti, is determined at the moment of conception. Prakriti is comprised of a unique ratio of Vata, Pitta or Kapha, and one or two of these doshas is usually predominant. However, some people are born with an equal balance of all three doshas, known as a tridoshic constitution.


Yogapedia Explains Tridoshic

Although tridoshic refers to a balanced ratio of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, this is not necessarily a natural state of equilibrium for all individuals. In Ayurveda, balance is assessed by looking at a person's Vikriti (current imbalance of doshas) in comparison to their Prakriti (biological constitution.) As such, tridoshic should not be thought of as a goal or a means to attain balance.

Those with a tridoshic constitution tend to be stable, focused and at peace with themselves. Their mind tends to be balanced between alert and relaxed, and their body is strong and healthy. Imbalance in those with a tridoshic constitution is caused by too much travel or eating the wrong types of food. This can lead to poor digestion, sleep disorders and anxiety.
