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.
Dr Ajit has given us a much deeper understanding of how the foods we prepare and eat can nourish our bodies. We have a much greater appreciation of how hard it is for our bodies to stay healthy let alone balanced and our role in helping that process along. We leave with a clear headedness that is refreshing and a lightness of step that makes us happy and satisfied. With deep appreciation to the staff at Planet Ayurveda, we are just beginning on our journey to nourish our minds and bodies amid all the stresses of the world outside this sanctuary.
