Vata (the air/space element)
Relates to anything related to motion. Eg- Heartbeat, blinking, BP.
Imbalance – leads to constipation, spasms, muscle cramps, bloating.
Pitta (fire and water element)
Relates to the metabolic energy in the body Eg- Digestion, body temperature.
Imbalance –leads to heartburn, peptic ulcers, acidity, anemia.
Kapha (water and earth element)
Relates to the immunity system and water levels in the body.
Imbalance – leads to cold/flu, an excess coating on the tongue, high body weight.
