Ayurveda test (Prakruti)

The Ayurveda Test or Prakruti Pariksha is an analysis of the nature of human beings.

It is associated with the ability of man to observe his nature through the functioning of his own body. As a result, awareness of one’s own needs can be achieved:

  • Maintaining a balance of climate change and the environment.
  • Restoring the synergistic connection between human energies and nature.
  • Maintaining good physical and emotional health.

According to the theory of the three doshas

According to the theory of the three doshas, human nature can be influenced and dominated by:

  • One energy force:
    Vata prakruti, Pitta prakruti or Kapha prakruti.
  • Two combined energies
    Vata and Pitta, Vata and Kapha, Pitta and Vata, Pitta and Kapha, Kapha and Vata, Kapha and Pitta
  • Of all three energies:
    Saniipatik (all together): Vata, Pitta and Kapha

Based on the three gunas

Based on the three gunas (Triguna) of the mind, which is related to the natural direction of the flow of thought, the types are divided into:

  • Sattva
  • Rajas
  • Tamas

The test above is based on the theory of the three doshas, allowing you to position yourself in relation to Vata, Pitta and Kapha prakuti.

What is Prakruti?

This is the unique combination of energies during the conception and birth of person, as well as their influence on the natural nature of energy. The term can mean:
Created as it is “,
i.e. nature.
Great shape“ or
Great creation“.
Or „Normal“, that is, without any subjective comparisons with others.
The idea of Prakruti helps us to understand the different qualities of human nature.

Why we need to determine our Prakruti?

The concept of Prakruti Pariksha is based on the generation of self-awareness, which protects us from mistakes, diseases, physical and emotional suffering.

Ayurveda teaches us to be proactive and turn ignorance into knowledge of ourselves and the world. It gives us that self-awareness that protects us from future disease processes

Its essence is expressed in the maxim “prevention is better than cure”, while at the same time giving us knowledge on how to treat diseases.

Prakruti Pariksha teaches us that each person has a unique form of existence in this world.

And hence the different needs that need to be met in order to achieve balance and harmony.

How to use the knowledge of your Prakruti?

The results of the Ayurveda test to determine the dominant energies can find practical application for:
1. Health assessment
Prakruti wig helps us to understand the signs we receive from our own body.


If a person like Kapha has trouble sleeping, he should realize that the condition is serious and address the problem immediately.

With this type of energy, sleep is a sign of strength and if poor sleep is highly rated (according to the table above), it means that the problem is deeper.

2. Predisposition to diseases
Prakruti Pariksha gives an indication of weak areas in the human body.


In Vata Prakruti, the joints are a vulnerable place and people of this type can easily be affected by joint diseases such as arthritis..

3. Guidelines for lifestyle and nutrition
Seasonal changes affect people of different types of Prakruti differently.

Prakruti information helps us increase our immune system by choosing the right foods and lifestyles.


Summer will increase Vata, so people dominated by this energy must make an effort to adapt through a change in diet and lifestyle.

In summer, this type of person should eat sweeter foods and drink more fluids.

4. Carrying out treatment
When applying a treatment regimen, determining Prakruti is a very important element of the recovery process, as it helps to choose the right medicine.


Disorders related to Pitta energy disorders are treated with the help of purified oil, while Kafa-based ones are successfully treated with honey.

5. Prognosis for the course and outcome of diseases
When we know how it penetrates the body and how the disease progresses, we can plan treatment, predict its duration and make assumptions about the end result.


Diseases associated with Vata prakruti develop faster. It is easy to understand and plan the intensity of treatment if we know the severity of the disease.

On the other hand, people like Vata prakruti have a very unstable mind, so the doctor must constantly give them confidence to succeed in treatment.
