Back to Part 1

Now that you have identifed your dosha type, it is time to determine whether your current lifestyle sustains and nurtures a balanced mind-body state. To achieve and maintain a vibrant and joyful state of health you must live to nurture the dynamic state of balance between mind, body and environment. These questions are intended to assess your current life situation, including any stresses, illnesses or life changes.
