Do you know your ? Prakriti

Prakriti is one of the earliest known concepts of preventive and personalized medicine. Ayurveda recognizes the uniqueness of every individual and can guide you towards a healthier you. Personalized care, embedded in Ayurveda, is woven around the heuristic concept of Prakriti based on Tridosha theory. All the three doshas are present in every individual, but the ratio differs between individuals. Prakriti refers to the unique constitution of an individual resulting from a combination of the three doshas that gets expressed as distinct physical, physiological, and behavioural traits. Health and well-being in Ayurveda are perceived as the ability to balance the three doshas and any imbalance could result in a diseased state.

Prakriti can be determined by using a specially designed questionnaire that evaluates the psycho-somatic characteristics of an individual.
Prakriti analysis is the key for diagnosis and customization of treatment in Ayurvedic practice. This means that the same treatment may not be effective for everyone and needs to be tailored according to individual needs. Prakriti has the power to predict the predisposition to certain diseases. Knowledge and awareness of individual Prakriti helps to make informed choices for optimal health and peak performance. Above all, Prakriti serves as a code for healthy living
