Prakriti Your Ayurvedic Constitution in Australia

Author : Gurnam Saini   LinkedIn Facebook





Literally the word Prakriti In Ayurveda is refers to one’s innate individual constitution, expressed as the inborn ratio of the three doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha).


How do three Ayurveda doshas Vata Pitta kapha produce so many different body-mind characteristics, prakriti or consitition?
Once we know and understand the qualities of the three doshas, we begin to see all of the ways that that dosha expresses itself in the structures of the body, in the physiology, and in the mental and emotional makeup.


For example, Vata Dosha is supposed to be Dry, light, empty, expansive subtle, moving, changeable, cold, dry, rough, and light. In unique individual this Vata Dosha articulates the situation as a trend to dry hair, skin, crackling and dry joints, and constipated gut; in additional like skinny or small build; in still alternative as compassion, imagination, and emotionality.

The makings of Kapha Dosha are labelled as stable, heavy, wet, cool, and absorbent. Hence in numerous techniques, this Dosha might marked as clear, fairer & attractive skin, sluggish metabolism, or outstanding memorial and administrative abilities, or a effusively established physique, or as a relaxed and noble character.


Prakriti In Ayurveda 

Although there exist more complex explanations of prakrti in Ayurveda, the simplest and most widely accepted explanation is this: Prakrti is established at conception. It is a product of:
  • The genetic inheritance of the two parents contained in the fertilized egg, and

The prakrti, or body constitution, which underlies the body-mind complex gives rise to features which allow for expression of that person’s for this lifetime.

In Ayurvedic Science, no two persons are similar, or we could opinion that each individual is innate with a certain hereditary make-up. The Prakriti, which might too be indicated to as Dosha, is vibrant in defining our Ayurveda body types, behaviour forms, desires, and our tendencies.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
