Prior to this experiment I had no idea of my specific dosha, let alone what a dosha is. Upon completion of the self study Ayurvedic dosha matrix I determined my constitution to be primarily Pitta with some Vata and even less Kapha. I know this is not a pure scientific analysis, however, it provided sufficient information for this self study (experiment).
Let me begin with a few lifestyle components that will lend credibility and explanation to this self study/experiment: I am,
Vegetarian (no flesh), gluten free, alcohol free, no tobacco, no substance abuse issues, no sugar (specifically high fructose corn syrup), active lifestyle, clean diet, epsom salt baths, essential oils and regular yoga practice. These are some of the essential considerations and not totally limited to these lifestyle equation components.
The experiment commenced on Monday, May 2, 2011 and terminated on Friday, May 13, 2011. Needless to say the results were not expected to be dramatic, however, still insightful and interesting for personal review and evaluation.
