Dosha Books

Ayuervedic-Book-RecommendationToday’s question comes from Crystal from the membership site:

Hi Melissa,
As far as I know I am a Pitta Kapha and this confuses me because I carry worry and anxiety with me daily.
I guess I am writing you to ask for a reliable resource on the Dosha’s. I really feel that working with the doshas would benefit me right now
but I am still a bit confused about dosha’s.
Thank You very kindly

I would recommend Deepak Chopra’s book Perfect Health:

Perfect Health provides a complete step-by-step program of mind body medicine tailored to individual needs. A quiz identifies the reader’s mind body type: thin, restless Vata; enterprising, efficient Pitta; tranquil, steady Kapha; or any combination of these three. This body type becomes the basis for a specific Ayurvedic program of diet, stress reduction, neuromuscular integration, exercise, and daily routines. The result is a total plan, tailor-made for each individual, to reestablish the body’s essential balance with nature; to strengthen the mind body connection; and to use the power of quantum healing to transcend the ordinary limitations of disease and aging–in short, for achieving Perfect Health.

He also has an online quiz that you could take to determine your dosha:

Of course you can also check out our five free videos on Yoga and Ayurveda on Namaste Yoga as well 🙂
