These are the eight branches of Ayurveda. Perfect balance of three Doshas leads to health, imbalance in Tridosha leads to diseases. If you divide the body into three parts, the top part up to the chest is dominated by Kapha Dosha, between chest and umbilicus is dominated by Pitta, part below umbilicus is dominated by Vata. Similarly when the day is divided as morning, afternoon and night separately , the first part is dominated by Kapha, second part is dominated by Pitta and third part is dominated by Vata. While eating and during digestion, the first, second and third part are dominated by Kapha, Pitta and Vata respectively. A person with Vishama Agni will sometimes have high appetite, and sometimes, low appetite.
