Prakruti analysis is a fundamental component of Ayurvedic medicine and involves the assessment of an individual’s unique mind-body constitution or “prakruti”. According to Ayurveda, every person is born with a specific prakruti, which determines their physical, mental, and emotional characteristics, as well as their susceptibility to certain health conditions.
During prakruti analysis, an Ayurvedic practitioner will assess a person’s physical and emotional characteristics, including their body type, digestion, sleep patterns, temperament, and energy levels. This information is used to determine a person’s unique prakruti and to identify any imbalances or disorders that may be present.
Once a person’s prakruti has been identified, the practitioner can provide personalized recommendations for diet, lifestyle, and herbal remedies to restore balance to the body and promote optimal health and well-being. These recommendations may include specific foods, herbs, and supplements, as well as lifestyle modifications such as yoga, meditation, and exercise.
