Dosha Quiz

According to Ayurveda (The Science of Life), we are a microcosm of the macrocosm

The five elements found in nature (Space, Air, Fire, Water & Earth) are found in each cell of our body. The Doshas are governing energies of these five elements.  The Doshas are comprised of the following:

    So, what does this all mean?

    At the moment of birth, your Ayurvedic Constitution or 'Prakruti' is established. This Prakruti (your individual blueprint) is comprised of all five elements, which form the three Doshas. Your Doshas relate to your genetically inherited physical, mental and emotional qualities.

    Discover Your Dosha

    The following simple questionnaire will give you a fairly good idea of your Doshas. Everyone has all three Doshas, but in varying degrees. The majority of the population has a primary and secondary Dosha. Answer the questions based on your overall lifelong tendencies NOT according to any temporary or recent conditions. To accurately assess your Prakruti or Ayurvedic Constitution, you MUST speak with an Ayurvedic Specialist or Practitioner.

    To schedule an appointment for an Ayurvedic consultation, email

    Choose at least one box in each column. If all the characteristics/descriptors in one box do not relate to you but most do, select that box. After you complete the questionnaire select 'submit' to see which of the Neelu Kaur Ayurvedic Oils are most suitable for you.
