Understand your little one's
unique mind-body type
This test is designed to get a grip on your chid’s unique mind-body type.
Ayurveda aims to help you to maintain your kid(s) in great health or quickly regain health when they get sick. But instead of telling you how to do it, how cool would it be if you could figure it out yourself? This Kids Test helps you to do exactly that. It’s designed to help you understand the behavior and needs of your little one better than anyone else. When you know how your kid is wired, the right choices on how to make them happy and healthy becomes so much easier.
About the self-test
Ayurveda has categorized three main mind-body types, called Doshas. The Doshas identify your state of mind and body. These constitutions are a combination of two elements that are naturally are prone to each other. They are named Vata (Ether & Air), Pitta (Fire & Water) and Kapha (Water & Earth). In total there are seven possible combinations of the Doshas. You may – for example – find out that your kid has mostly Pitta qualities and secondary Vata characteristics. In this case, your little one will have a Pitta-Vata constitution and you should, therefore (depending on the situation and especially the season you are in) take care of both. Most kids will have one or two Doshas predominant, but there are also a few with a birth constitution where all three Doshas are equal.
One of the main tools in Ayurveda is the principle of “like increases like”. This means that when one of the Doshas is out of balance you should look at what qualities (Gunas) are out of balance and then bring in the opposite quality (Guna).
At the end of the test, you will know what mind-body type your kid is, and we will give you a detailed description of your unique characteristics and you will be ready to enter the world of Ayurveda.
