Quoted from zenphoenix

i was told to look at it as more like a circle than a line.

Western people think of it as Vata-Pitta-Kapha (ie linear) when really it's more like Vata-Pitta-Kapha-Vata-Pitta-Kapha-Vata-Pitta-Kapha-Vata-Pitta-Kapha-Vata-Pitta-Kapha-Vata... etc (ie in a circle).

For example... a Vata-Kapha person may be predisposed to the mental or emotional ungroundedness of Vata and then the body tries to balance it by behaving all Kapha and gaining weight, sleeping a lot, hanging on to things, and by withdrawing away from problems and stress, etc.
Thanks for the explanation, ZP.  Yep, definitely ungrounded, here.
Quoted from Chloe

I just took the test and I too am a Vata-Kapha, but aren't these two doshas direct opposites?
That's what I wondered.  But then I thought Vata-Kapha was yet another Explorer oddity.  



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

We get some genes from Mommy and some genes from Daddy.
We acquire some tendencies from genes, some from prenatal environment, some from childhood environment, some from current environment, etc.
Some of us speak more than one language.
Some of us play more than one instrument.
Some of us had double-majors in college.
Who ever said Vata has to be exclusive of Kapha, or vice versa?

Well I am just as much a chameleon in Doshas
I took 2 different test- one in danish and the one linked here and both said the same.
Body; 4 of each dohas
and mind ; 6 pitta, 3 Kapha and 3 Vata  

Well I just continue to listen to my body

Not only that, friend, but take the test again next year or so, and it'll change.

In fact - though you're always of a certain blood type, always of a certain Rh group, always either a secretor or non, the proportions of the doshas changes all the time. There are Pitta times of day, and Pitta times of year, for instance. (I didn't understand this at first, either.)
Certain sicknesses/ conditions can cause a given dosha to predominate in a person, too.

Macrobiotics teaches this, as well.
Dr. D'Adamo to an extent treats of this mutability with SWAMI and with his books for various diseases, shifting recommendations based upon those diseases.

I don't see you as a chameleon, Henriette, but as an individual that no System is able to pigeonhole. Rock on, girl!

I just received this book in the mail:
Julie Workman's [i]Stop Your Cravings: A Customized Program Combining  Ayurveda and Western Nutrition for Achieving  Optimum Health and Maximum Weight Loss.
If you're interested in incorporating Ayurveda into your practice, you might take a look at it.
Workman refers to Blood Type several times, but she doesn't integrate it well into the body of the book -- it's more of a nod towards D'Adamo's work...
which is more than you'd see from most other Registered Dieticians.
She also deals with the Glycemic Index, Gluten issues, the "Zone", et c.
My copy was under $1, and I think I'll be making some use of it, actually.
Your Mileage May Vary.
