The individual constitution

Die individuelle Konstitution

The individual constitution in Ayurvedic teaching

The concept of the five elements plays a fundamental role in Ayurvedic science. Space, air, fire, water and earth are manifested with their properties in every inorganic and organic matter. As a microcosm, humans also consist of all five elements.

Vata, Pitta and Kapha

These in turn combine to form three basic energies or functional principles, the doshas : Vata, Pitta and Kapha. All three predominate in us, but to different degrees. They have different characteristics in terms of body, metabolism, behavior, mind, character and disease symptoms.

Doshas react differently

Our original constitution (Prakriti) is genetically predisposed and cannot be changed. It is given to us by our parents. Prakriti is at its best in young adulthood. Due to an unhealthy lifestyle and diet, stress, lack of rest and exercise, but also through suppressed feelings and trauma, the doshas become unbalanced and increase depending on the type. Depending on the type of change and constitution, different symptoms and illnesses arise.

In Ayurveda therapy, this imbalance (Vikriti) is balanced through a type-appropriate diet and lifestyle, body work such as massages, medicinal plants and healing conversations. This brings you back to your original healthy constitution.
