Q. What is Prakriti?

Prakriti is the Ayurvedic profile or unique psychosomatic temperament of an individual, encompassing his or her physical, functional and behavioral characteristics. Prakriti is basically your body type according to ayurveda. In Ayurveda, Purusha or the body is considered to be a combination of various components like Dosha, Dhatu, Indriya, Manas, Buddhi and Atma. Like genetic coding, every individual has a different combination and is therefore a distinct entity. Dietary preferences, behavioral patterns, job options, performance abilities are all strikingly different between any two individuals.

Of various elements in the human body, the doshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - control the functional aspects of the human body. Thus, Prakriti is determined by a unique combination of these three doshas (Tridoshas). Ayurveda considers that Prakriti is formed at the inception of human life and usually does not alter during the later phases.

Q. What is Ayurveda?

Q. I often suffer from acute acidity. What could be the reason and how do I cure the burning sensation?

A. Acidity is a common digestive disorder. Our stomach produces acids and enzymes to digest the food that we eat. This is a regular and natural process. Whenever excessive acid is produced by the stomach, this results in acidity. You may feel a burning sensation just above the stomach, or right below (the hollow part) your breastbone. This is the most classic sign of acidity.

Acidity is a result of too much acid secretion in the stomach. This usually happens after one to four hours after a meal. Too much acid secretion can be a result of an improper diet regimen or other factors such as stress.

For people prone to acidity- over-eating, improper dietary regimen, excessive fried and fatty foods should be strictly avoided. Some other factors such as being overweight, excessive consumption of alcohol, smoking, skipping meals or not eating on time also add to problem and should be well-watched. Stress and anxiety also lead to acidity.

We all experience cough at some or the other time in our daily lives but how many of us understand the seriousness of cough. You must know that cough is not a disease. It is actually a symptom or a reaction of a disease.

Q. My body is weak and prone to catching flu and infections. How do I strengthen my immunity?

Immunity is the power of defense that humans have for self-protection. Strong immunity keeps us safe from diseases and ailments, keeps us healthy and happy. Immunity gives us protection from disease‐causing microorganisms and thus protects the human body from infections and diseases.

There are many disease‐causing microorganisms—such as bacteria, parasites, and fungi that can cause infections. Adopting healthy living strategies is the most fundamental way of boosting the immune system’s health. There is enough scientific data to support the fact that each one of us must make an effort to strengthen our immune systems. The efforts should include:

• reducing negative psychological stress;

• following a physician‐approved, moderate, long‐term exercise program;

• Following a diet as well as consuming nutrients that have been shown to enhance immune response and promote health.

You can protect yourself from viral infections like Flu by strengthening your immunity.

Ayurveda recommends a number of herbs to boost immunity. Chyawanprash, a time-tested, age-old formulation has a number of herbs like Amla etc, known to be one of the best antioxidants and can increase the stamina of your body.
