What is Prakruti?
Why we need to determine our Prakruti?
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
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?
1. Health assessment
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
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
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
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
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.
