Consultations and guidelines on request



Vatta dosha is characterized by certain “qualities”:

  • Dry
  • Light
  • Cold
  • Subtle
  • Mobile
  • Bright

Its associated tastes are: Bitter and bitter.


Bitter consists of air and space. Bitter is a drying taste. This is why the use of bitter foods with an invigorating effect and is especially recommended for people with too much kapha. On the other hand, a more bitter diet also has a highly purifying effect, because by these cold properties, it is a good way to eliminate hot toxins from the body. A more bitter diet also promotes the purification of the mind, defrosts and frees man from his erotic passions and impulses. Excess bitterness also makes people bitter. Examples of bitter foods include raw green vegetables and green tea.


Astringent consists of air and earth. This taste has the particularity of exerting a drying and contracting effect. This is how it has a very favourable effect on people who suffer from an increase in kapha, which can be expressed by a certain softness and gloom. Astringent foods are perfect for tempering these types of ailments. Like bitters, astringent feeding has a purifying and fortifying effect on the mind. The astringent brings together, it helps to refocus. And it is precisely by virtue of these astringent properties that astringent foods are often used in case of injury. However, an overly astringent diet can make a person nihilistic. Examples of astringent foods include turmeric and green vegetables.



PIitta dosha is characterized by certain “qualities”:

  • Oily (fat)
  • Sharp (penetrant)
  • Hot
  • Light
  • Mobile
  • Liquid

Its associated tastes are: Acid and spicy.


Acid consists of water and fire. This taste must be well dosed. If you don’t use acid taste wisely, you quickly generate conflicts. Excessive acidity attacks and causes body inflammation. The acid taste makes people more quick-witted and promotes clarity of their thoughts and emotions. It also irritates and stimulates the digestive system. Too much acidity can cause blood diseases and weaken fertility. Examples of acidic food include lemon, tamarind, wines and fermented products such as sauerkraut.

Spicy (spicy)

The pungent taste consists of fire and air. The pungent promotes our digestion, encourages the absorption of food and allows us to burn our toxins. A pungent diet reinforces our alertness, the precision of thoughts and the ability to conceive complicated things more simply. However, over-eating makes us acerbic and promotes bleeding and inflammation. Examples of spicy foods include pepper and ginger.



Kapha dosha is characterized by certain “qualities”:

  • Heavy
  • Slow
  • Cold
  • Syrupy
  • Dense
  • Soft
  • Stable
  • Sticky

Its associated tastes are: Sweet and salty.


The sweet taste consists of water and fire and corresponds above all to the kapha qualities. The soft is heavy and cold. The sweet is very nutritious – the most nutritious of all tastes, by the way. Soft ness nourishes our blood plasma and tissues, and allows us to come into contact with our body, to land and enjoy life more simply. The sweet one promotes fertility, but too much softness softens the body. Examples of sweet foods include cereals, dates and pumpkins.


The salt is made up of earth and fire. It is found only in minerals, not in plants. Salting brings firmness and structure to people and promotes stability. Salt is a taste enhancer – with a pinch of salt everything looks better – and stimulates digestion. However, too much salt poisons the blood and causes skin diseases. Examples of salty food include sea salt, Himalayan salt, rock salt, etc.
