MOTTO OF AYURVEDA
The following sentence explains the basic aim of Ayurveda.
“Swasthasya Swasthya Rakshanam; Atursya Vikar Prashamanam”
This means: “Preservation to health of healthy person is treating ailments with breaking causative factors of pathogenesis”.
The prakruti is a guideline to natural state and potential. The emotion and perception tends to fluctuate more than the physical characteristics do, and you need to take the test multiple times to get a true picture. In Ayurveda, a physician would take pulse three times before determining the prakruti.
AYURVEDA BODY TYPE (CONSTITUTIONS)
You may need to go back and think about how you were when younger, even so back as your childhood. You may need to ask your friends and relatives for their impressions about you then and now. You may astonish to hear from your friend/relative a different view about yourself.
Points: When you take the prakruti test, put points based on the intensity and frequency of the symptoms in your childhood. Use the following points: –3 points for strong frequent symptoms –2 points for moderate symptoms –1 point for weak infrequent symptoms –0 points for no symptoms
