ABOUT VATA DOSHA
Vata Reflects Elements of Air and Space
Vata is characterized by movement, air, dryness, cold, and space within the body. It governs activities of the body and mind, including the brain, nervous system, joints, blood circulation, respiration, and the large intestinal tract. Vata is found in nature in wind, autumn, and early winter.
Vata dominant people are usually tall, thin, or lanky. They are quick, agile, quick in fear, easily irritated, intolerant to cold, have coarse hair and nails, prominent blood vessels.
When in balance, the Vata dosha flows through all movements and blood flow, is quick in actions and emotions, and fuels the nerve impulses.
When out of balance, the Vata dosha can result in dry skin, hyperactivity, gas, constipation, PMS, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
