Body Constitution

Body Constitution

Ayurveda recognized long time ago that no two individuals are the same and developed the concept of “Body Constitution” (also known as Body Type or “Prakriti”) or in modern terminology the genetical makeup.

Body Constitution is determined by the proportions of 3 “Doshas” or energies – Pitta, Kapha and Vata which are present in all individuals – we are born with them and they cannot be changed.

Knowing our body constitution tell us many things e.g. what foods are good for our body, if you are suffering from a health problem, it will tell you which of these 3 “Doshas” is out of balance and what needs to be done to restore the original balance to “CURE” the problem etc. There are many advantages to knowing your Body Constitution – it can literally change your life.

Your Score

Count all V’s, P’s and K’s. That is your Body Constitution. If you fit more in ‘V’ category, then you may have more Vata predominance. If you circled more ‘P’ choices, you may have strong Pitta, dominating your personality and if ‘K’ choices seem more appropriate, Kapha may be responsible for your looks and likes.
