Discovering your Prakruti

An Ayurvedic diagnosis is the determination of the patients’ Prakruti (constitution and the patient’s Vikruti (imbalance). To do this successfully, the practitioner must gather appropriate information. The two primary methods of collecting information are the patient history and the examination. The process of diagnosis is the process of interpreting the information gathered. A diagnosis is only as accurate as the accuracy of the information received. Hence, making an accurate diagnosis requires competent investigative skills. The classifications of the determining the doshas in the body are divided into the different senses. Sound, touch, smell, asking and looking, these all display the character behind the expression (disease, imbalance, or deficiency)
