Prakruthi – Your Innate Nature

Ayurveda categorizes the human body into seven parts based on its characteristics. Knowing your own Prakruthi will help you understand more about yourself.

The Sanskrit word Prakruthi means nature. Ayurveda says that you are born with an innate nature, which bestows you with certain physical and mental traits. The three doshas are detrimental to stabilizing the body. The dominance of any of the dosha gives us certain traits and qualities which could be positive or negative. Understanding this will definitely enable you to look at Ayurveda and its healing in a better light.An individual could in fact have combinations of these three doshas in various forms and each can bring about a manifestation of characteristics in a different manner. There are basically seven constitutions – predominance of Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha, Kapha-Vata and the Tridosha prakruthi. By understanding your Prakruthi, you can adopt a suitable diet and life style patterns to improve immunity, thereby preventing illness.At The Health Village, the Prakruthi Analysis takes place over two steps.

Step One – while you are at your initial consultation, your doctor will assess your basic physical and mental traits in order to garner an understanding of your system.

Step two –thereafter, you will be required to write down a few answers with the help of a doctor.

The combined result of these two steps will give the doctor an accurate description of your Prakruthi and a better understanding of the treatment plan that he needs to formulate for you.
