    this test comes up with Kapha for me - which is indeed the type my doctor identified several years ago. I'm somewhat impressed.

    Kapha.

    The Kapha Type

    * Kapha types have good endurance, strength and stamina.
    * Although it is easy for you to follow routine, it is healthier for you to periodically break from routine.
    * You tend toward inertia and tend to attach to people or things.
    * Food and security are important to you.
    * The primary organ is the chest.
    * Kapha is often correlated with the production of mucus.
    * Kapha types have a tendency towards congestion, sinusitis, sluggishness, weight gain, diabetes or water retention.

    In order to be balanced, Kaphas should be physically active, consume little fried or fatty foods, avoid icy drinks, sweets or excessive amounts of bread. They should enjoy plenty of fresh vegetables.

    Kapha types should allow excitement, change and challenge to become a regular part of their lives.

    MJ, the body type you were born with is called Vata-Kapha in Ayurvedic medicine.

    This means that most likely your bone structure is on the small side and your metabolism tends to be fast. Your constitution also includes secondary characteristics of the Kapha type, which may influence you to feel calm and content much of the time. Your constitution also leads us to believe that you are generally both articulate and watchful.

    A key component to an Ayurvedic lifestyle is to eat, live and interact with the world according to your natural body type. In relation to eating, Primary Vata types should be eating foods that taste pungent, bitter, or astringent.

    LapDog, the body type you were born with is called Pitta-Vata in Ayurvedic medicine.

    This means that most likely you have a medium bone structure and a regular metabolism. However, your body type does include secondary characteristics of the Vata type, which may influence you to be articulate and watchful. Your constitution also leads us to believe that you are both driven and competitive.

    A key component to an Ayurvedic lifestyle is to eat, live and interact with the world according to your natural body type. In relation to eating, Primary Pitta types should be eating foods that taste pungent, sour, or salty.
