AYURVEDA IS AN ANCIENT HEALING SYSTEM THAT DEFINES RADIANT HEALTH AS A BALANCE BETWEEN MIND + BODY + SOUL. This healing system takes into account seasons,  climate, lifestyle, dietary habits, exercise, and sleep patterns among others to help us move towards our most fluid recipe or state of balance. Determining your individual dosha, also known as prakriti or bodily constitution, helps you carve out or stomp what doesn't bring you towards balance and replace that space with the stuff that does. If you feel like you do everything in your power to move towards equilibrium but still find yourself distressed and stuck, dig a little deeper with us. That way, your home apothecary, beauty belly pantry and daily routine is stocked up with only the stuff that makes the trumpets blow. Every time. 

We partnered with Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari, a doctor specializing in Ayurvedic nutrition + whole-body balance, to create a way for you to align your individual chemistry and take your health to a level that flows effortlessly. Our bodies are hyperintelligent, and will gravitate to substances + situations that settle our insides and nourish our inner terrain. Dr. Ram Bhandaris expertise in Ayurvedic detoxification + purification, also known as "Panchakarma", yoga, meditation, and Naturopathy has assured him of the role environment plays when moving towards equillibrium. He firmly states that Nature is our pantry, and everything we need has already been given to us.

IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE TAKING THE QUIZ, HERE IS A BRIEF OVERVIEW TO GET YOU STARTED: 

 VATA DOSHA   Generally thin, lanky, with dry hands + hair + feet. When in balance, very joyous and enthusiastic. When faced with stress, VATA individuals respond with anxiety + worry + fear + scattered state. These individuals don't usually sweat much, but are drawn to high intensity movement. They are very quick to learn, and quick to forget. VATA prakriti individuals can be so creative, but also somewhat all over the place. They are fast at walking + talking, but seem to falter with daily routine. VATA types thrive on a diet of mostly cooked meals, with little to no raw foods, and warmer beverages over iced beverages.

 KAPHA DOSHA   Sturdy, stocky build and are prone to be overweight. Generally very loving + faithful + compassionate characters. These folks are the thoughtful, but laid-back-jacks of the world and tend to thrive on diets of any kind, raw or cooked. KAPHA types are slow learners, but never forget their knowledge. They stand strong in their immunity and it takes them a lot to fall sick. If they do get sick, it tends to be congestive-related or along the lines of a cold. In comparison to VATA, they easily maintain harmony and strength in their environment due to their consistent nature. Hot or sunny weather is NOT their jam! 

 PITTA DOSHA  Generally strong, medium build and wonderful at concentrating and completing tasks. They are tepid listeners and are easily challenged + aggressive when they are out of balance. PITTA types generally have fair, freckly skin that burns easily. They don't handle long gaps between meals and are destined to develop aggravation if gone too long without food. They thrive on mostly cooked foods and little to no cleansing/fasting. Their digestion + ability to absorb nutrients is strong.
