Healing through Ayurveda – Tips for Dosha understanding and Self Care
In this apparent world we come across so many people with varied personalities. People differ not only in looks and body structure, but also in mental temperament, attitude, tastes, reactions, abilities et all. Yet we are all humans. We can easily notice this rather strange fact that even in a single family one family member is easily annoyed by slight stimulus and other individual remains completely un-bothered, one is frequently anxious with delayed digestion, while the other complains of hunger pangs all the while. One person is hard go-getter, while the other keeps the cool. One is a night person while the other finds it highly intricate simply eyeing the morning sun. The list goes on and on.
Our ancient science of Ayurveda has long back conceptualized the theory of our innate personality that marks our lifelong subsistence. Not only has this proficient knowledge helped us to categorize ourselves in relation to our innate foundation, but once we are clear on the subject, we can virtually understand our self better and eventually take care of our entity gaining life long physical as well as mental wellness. And this surely is the need of the times.
Although most of us today seem to have mixed personalities, there still is a dominant element in all of us. And this basic element governs our totality and makes up our indispensable personality. This basic element or Dosha as proclaimed in our primordial text, subsists in three prime forms viz. vatta or the air, pitta or the fire and kapha or the phlegm. Subsequently, the three distinct personalities I have named as TYPE – V, TYPE – P and TYPE – K personalities relate to these three elements of air, fire and phlegm. This books details about the three persona types that relates to the entire human existence. When the air is dominant, it is apt to make you erratic, whereas the fire type individuals would be naturally stimulated and yet supremacy of phlegm in the system reasons for physical and mental permanence. This book on Ayurveda basics is a sure support to make the reader identify, understand and take care of his natural wellness lifelong.
About the book: Healing through Ayurveda
Humans. Men and women. Some skinny, some plump. Some hyper, some cool minded, some with a fluctuating mindset. Some creative, some perfectionists, some easy going. Some have a tough time fighting digestive disorders, some crib about skin afflictions, while some sniff and sneeze around frequently.
Trust it sounds familiar as you may yourself bear some of these traits. It is worth wondering why individuals have diverse personalities. Even in a single family one member gets easily annoyed, while the other remains unruffled by even most perplexing situation. One is a night person, while the other finds watching the sunrise fascinating. People differ not only in looks and mental temperament, but also in attitude, tastes, reactions, and abilities. But ever wondered why?
Ancient Indian science of Ayurveda has the answer to it. Ayurveda helps us categorize ourselves based on our inbuilt foundation. It is all about the play of vatta, pitta and kapha – the three primary body humors. Knowing which humor is dominant in us, why it gets aggravated, what illness the aggravation causes and how it can be balanced will make us our own doctor.
This book makes the task only simpler for you. It is the best guide to help you identify yourself, understand the actions (and reactions), physical and mental characteristics and consequently balance the imbalance to restore natural well-being for entire life !
Book Foreword by Lissa Coffey
Ayurveda teaches us that what is natural is easy and effortless. This knowledge allows us to love and accept things as they are rather than yearn to get what we think ‘should be’. Living a life in balance and harmony provides us prosperity in all aspects of life: health, relationship, career, and lifestyle.
I encourage you to soak up the wisdom imparted by Dr Krishan’s through this highly useful book. Hope you’ll reap great benefits from the science of Ayurveda and attain a fruitful combination of healthy body, mind, and spirit!

Whether you are brand new to the study of Ayurveda, or have been practicing for years, Dr. Sonica Krishan’s book “Healthing Through Ayurveda: Tips for Dosha Understanding and Self Care” will help you to understand just how easy and practical it is to live an ayurvedic lifestyle. There are many helpful suggestions to help us be more healthy, things we can do on our own. I am a huge fan of Ayurveda, and I appreciate that Dr. Krishan has made her book available so that more people can learn about this wonderful practice.
Dr. Sonica Krishan, author of the well-written book Healing through Ayurveda, Tips for Understanding Dosha and Self Care, provides clear, concise information on the three humors or personality types of vatta, pitta, and kapha in part one. She provides checklists and descriptions of personality factors or conditions that invite all people of Eastern and Western cultures to identify their personal traits and patterns. The Self-Identity Questionnaire is especially helpful in recognizing aspects like climate preference, mental ability, and emotional tendencies. We don’t usually consider that we may be sensitive to temperature, specific herbs or need social or emotional skills to balance our personality traits.
Moreover, in part 2, Dr. Krishan encourages balance in temperament and lifestyle and even the daily habits of eating, breathing, and exercise. She reminds the health-conscious reader that some simple application of herbs or exercises through breathing and yoga make all the difference in the world to our health, longevity and happiness.
I enjoyed this book immensely, and you will enjoy it also. Healing Through Ayurveda is a reference book to keep nearby and refer to when you feel out of balance. Highly recommended.
