Tridoshas

Sure, I can help you with that. Here is a table that explains the three doshas, their elements and their significance, based on the web search results:

Dosha Element Significance

Vata – Air + Ether – Vata embodies the energy of movement and is therefore often associated with wind and the air element. Vata governs all movement in the mind and body. It controls blood flow, elimination of wastes, breathing and the movement of thoughts across the mind. Since Pitta and Kapha cannot move without it, Vata is considered the leader of the three Ayurvedic Principles in the body.

Pitta – Fire + Water – Pitta represents the energy of transformation and is therefore closely aligned with the fire element. But in living organisms, Pitta is largely liquid, which is why water is its secondary element. Pitta is neither mobile nor stable, but spreads—much as the warmth of a fire permeates its surroundings, or as water flows in the direction dictated by the terrain. Pitta governs digestion, absorption, assimilation, nutrition, metabolism and body temperature.

Kapha – Earth + Water – Kapha lends structure, solidity and cohesiveness to all things, and is therefore associated primarily with the earth and water elements. Kapha also embodies the watery energies of love and compassion. This dosha hydrates all cells and systems, lubricates joints, moisturizes the skin, maintains immunity and protects the tissues.
