Ayurveda is the only science which works on the fundamental principle that every human being is born with their own unique body constitution or Prakriti. Your body type is determined at the time conception. This is because both the sperm and ovum contain the three primary energies - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. If the sperm is stronger, then the newborn will be dominant with the quality carried in the male sperm or vice versa.
Once you know your body’s constitution it becomes much easier for an individual to live a healthy life by following a compatible lifestyle and diet that keeps the body’s constitution in balance. If at any stage an in-balance occurs, it is much easier to structure a specific program to redress the imbalance rather than just treating the symptoms of the illness as they occur.
Having worked as a Project Manager in the construction industry one develops the ability to recognise the Master Tradesman out of the group of journeymen, apprentices and others. Dr Ajit is certainly a master of Pancha Karma. We are lucky to have Dr Ajit in NZ as a vehicle for this knowledge and I recommend the Ayurvedic treatments for all.
