Whats a Dosha?
In doing a bit of online exploring, I found this explanation of Dosha’s and what the term represents. This comes from India Herbs, but I suppose it’s available on other sites as well. I can’t say it any better.
In Ayurveda the diagnosis of disease and individual constitutions is done in terms of three psycho-physical Doshas called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Every individual has a unique combination of these three Doshas.
The Doshas are composed of five basic elements (Panchamahabhutas) that exhibit the properties of earth (Prithvi), water (Jala), fire (Tejas), wind (Vayu), and space (Akasha). The structural aspect of your body is made up of five elements, but the functional aspect of the body is governed by three biological humors. Ether and air together constitute Vata; fire and water together constitute Pitta; and water and earth together constitute Kapha.
If you go to the home page, there’s a link to take a short quiz that will reveal your Dosha type. It’s down the right side at the top, just under the header. I’d like to challenge everyone to check it out just to get to know yourself better.
Once you do, check out the others. It’s almost like a quick checkup where you confess all your imperfections on the registration form before seeing the doctor. Try the Diet one and it will lead you into a suggested menu for healthy eating. Do the longevity and it will give you a good guess at how long you’re going to be around if you don’t change your life style a bit. It will make suggestions.
I find these most interesting and helpful. Try them. I suspect you might enjoy it too.
Many people today are overweight or suffering from allergies, especially here in the United States. I see it among my co-workers, people I go to church with, people here in my neighborhood, the youth and especially among shoppers or drivers.
Every once in awhile I’ll talk with some of them about their overall health, mostly because they bring it up, not because I ask. So I’ll listen to their complains for a little while then ask them what they are doing about it? Most then tell me about this or that medicine the doctor put them on and how it does or doesn’t work for them.
This gets old in a hurry so somewhere in the process I let them know I had some problems in the past and got on some herbs that have helped restore my health naturally. Most react a bit negatively to that, some almost going into panic mode because herbs are not ‘doctor approved.’
I simply tell them they ought to try it before they buy it, doing a bit of research before they do. Most again are too busy or too afraid. But now, I’ve found a great herbal supplier I can truly believe in who stand behind their products 110% and even do online doctor reviewed diagnostics to help clients get the right products for their need.
It’s India Herbs, people who have put together a superb nutritional program that standardizes quality and capitalizes on 5,000 years of herbal practice. If you’d like to check them out, just click on the below banner and bookmark the site so you can research all they have to offer. Personally I like their simple, straightforward manner and the professional quality of their service.

Just a quick question today for anyone who views this.
Are you planning on ‘Going Green’ or greener in 2011?
If so, in what way and to what degree? Write me a private comment and let me know. This is for my research & investigation only, will not be published unless you request it.
“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”
from the book: Philosophy, who needs it. by
Ahn Ayn Rand
I think this is also why Michael Savage maintains that Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. This in itself is a fascinating topic. For more insight, read some of the new research finding books written and published by Dr. Daniel Amen http://www.amenclinics.com/
These principles also apply to the ultra conservatives as well, but in a different way as they are the flip side of the same coin, both parties and interests used to keep we the people poor. Read the book for additional insights!
Just a quick check in tonight. I listened to a great audio book today by Rajiv Chandrasekaran entitled: Imperial Life in the Emerald City (Inside Iraq’s Green Zone). It’s a very balanced view of our rebuild efforts the first year after we took over Iraq this last time, explaining in detail why it didn’t work.
We made so many mistakes there, no wonder everyone is mad at Bush! I’d recommend this to everyone who wants to understand Iraqi responses better and what we should have done with these people who live in a culture so unlike our own. By fostering better understanding, maybe we can repair some of the damage done.
He doesn’t say this, but now, several years after the facts and in light of where we [America] are today, I fear we’ve missed our opportunity to remain leaders of the free world. Unless we the people step up to the plate and gain control of our out of control government, our nation is going to be just as much disembowed as Iraq was.
Only in freedom and markets are we going to find salvation. We need to reign in all those pursuing some high and mighty political agenda. Comments anyone?
I’m the new kid on the block with so many radical ideas I don’t know where to start. We really ought to rethink America in light of all the new technology that is out there and get people tuned into the foundations of freedom again so we pull ourselves up by the bootstraps like we’ve always done in the past instead of looking for government to solve all our problems.
In a nutshell, too much government is our problem and we need to tell them the era of big government capping and wasting our resources is OVER! It’s time for some new, independent thinkers to step in, each one with their own personal baby to address and solve just one of our current problems. With the technology and information now available, competition and credibility should be opening up new markets and opportunities.
Instead of government doing the regulating, we the people could be doing a bit of it ourselves through markets and internet feedback. If the last election didn’t send a clear enough message to entrenched government leaders who are going the wrong way, the next one surely will. But why should we wait for them to catch up? Opportunities are out there right now for many of us.
Smart people are using their unemployment checks to start new businesses, find niches in underserved markets and set up the next boom cycle. The trouble is, there’s not yet enough of us catching the vision of this yet. Instead we’re hunkering down, hoping the storm will pass by quickly instead of standing up, being brave and going at it proactively ourselves.
So look around you. Instead of doing business with the mega market, find the little guy with personal service and better products just around the corner from you. I’m finding these everywhere and they need our support! I’ll be pulling in some examples in the near future. Share your ideas and help me know the direction I need to go with this blog.
