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.
I have gone through the negative and positive emotions of going through this treatment, but there is no gain without a little discomfort at certain times. It has been a great experience; I will complete this treatment again in the future.
