Your Dosha Results
Your constitution type is Vata-Pitta
Generally, with this Bi-Dosha, Vata characteristics will dominate the physical attributes (thin boned) and Pitta (quick and easily hot-tempered) for emotional attributes. Vata-Pitta can come across as "back and forth" with extremes varying from Pitta’s anger to Vata’s fear (think of the song “Hot N’ Cold” by Katy Perry).
A healthy person with a Vata-Pitta predominant constitution is fun, loving, passionate and full of ideas. They are jet-setters with a purpose. They have the ability to be keenly insightful while also holding the big picture in view. They are go-getters driven by intensity.
How do you know when Vata-Pitta is imbalanced?
Vata-Pitta's imbalance can be seen in the form of anxiousness, lack of sleep, and inflammation in the skin (e.g. redness).
In excess, the dry and rough qualities may manifest themselves as dry or brittle skin, lips, hair, nails, or bones (e.g. osteoporosis), as constipation, or as feeling “dry” emotionally.
