Discover Your Dosha:

To determine your dosha or unique constitution, it’s best to mark the answers that describe you over the years. What has been consistent. That is your dosha. The column with the highest points is your primary and the second highest is your secondary dosha. Fill the test again to determine whats different currently. That is the vikruti or the imbalanced dosha.After finishing the questionnaire, press the “calculate results” (located left of the page) button to discover your Doshas. If you make a mistake, just click the box again to de-select. Or if you would like to try again, press the erase & start over button (located left of the page). Most of us will have one Dosha predominant, a few will have two Doshas approximately equal and even fewer will have all three Doshas in equal proportion.
