20 Factors That Determine Your Ayurvedic Constitution

Prakruti.

An unfamiliar word for an unfamiliar concept.

20 factors that determine your ayurvedic constitution

It means your Ayurvedic Constitution or mind-body type, and for most of us, we weren’t raised to think such a thing even existed so it’s a bit unfamiliar to begin making changes in our lives & health-based on it!

But the rewards of really understanding your prakruti are so very worthwhile, and if you can change your nutrition, daily rhythms and activity to be in sync with your mind-body type, you’re going be great leaps ahead with disease-prevention.

When you come to any Ayurvedic practitioner, s/he is highly skilled at evaluating at least 20 factors:

  1. Body frame
  2. How weight is held
  3. Skin
  4. Teeth
  5. Eyes
  6. Pulse
  7. Tongue
  8. Hair
  9. Nails
  10. Appetite
  11. Taste

12. Thirst
13. Elimination
14. Activity
15. Mind
16. Emotions
17. Support
18. Memory
19. Sleep
20. Dreams

Once a practitioner determines your Ayurvedic constitution, she will keep that as the foundation, and assess additional layers that a person demonstrates in their chronic & acute health concerns.
