A common question about Ayurveda is: "Is it the goal in Ayurveda to become tridoshic?"

Everybody has a unique combination of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Basd on the percentage of these doshas, you will be one of the following constitutions: Vata, Pitta, Kapha (where one dosha dominates); Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha, and Vata-Kapha (where two doshas equally dominate); and Tridoshic (where all doshas are relatively equal).

ONLY people who are originally Tridoshic need to balance any excess doshas with the goal of becoming "Tridoshic." For everyone else, the goal is to remove the imbalance so you are at your natural levels for your Prakruti (constitution). Tridoshic types are relatively rare.
