IMBALANCE OF DOSHA

Each of the three doshas has certain quantity, qualities and functions. When all the doshas are in balance, it is known as normal or dosha shamya. The balance in the tridoshas is the way towards well-being, health and happiness. But this balance is not stable and keeps on changing continuously. The doshas either increases or decreases resulting in dosha imbalance. The imbalance in doshas leads to various health problems. Other than causing health problems, dosha imbalance has a negative effect on the mind and emotions. Negative emotions aggravate the dosha associated with them. There are two kinds of imbalances.
