Blood Types Correlated to the Dosha

O Rh positive - Pitta or Kapha Pitta - 65% of the time

O Rh Negative - Pitta predominant - 70% of the time

A - Vata predominant - 80% of the time

B - Kapha predominant - 80% of the time

AB - Vata Kapha dual - 65% of the time

Remember, blood in the Western sense includes rasa and rakta dhatus. A blood transfusion of the component called red blood cells, which is rakta dhatu, is required when a person has an extremely low blood count and is also necessary during a surgical procedure. Type A receives blood from A. Type B should receive blood from type B. The universal donor is O and the universal recipient is AB. These four groups are important. It is simple to have your blood type checked in a lab. If by mistake blood if Type A is given to B or B to A, it is a mismatch. In addition, we must think about Rh positive and Rh negative. O Rh negative is highly Pitta, and these people may develop peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis and other pitta disorders. This group is likely to develop disorders of increased ranjanka pitta.
