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.

Prakriti In Ayurveda

We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • 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.
