"Hitaahitam sukham dukham aayus tasya hitaahitam Maanam cha tat cha yatroktam aayurvedah sa uchyate."

"Ayurveda is a science, which describes the beneficial (hita) and the non-beneficial (ahita) aspects of life, the happiness and pain in life, their quality and quantity."

- Charaka

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine. When translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “the science of life” (the Sanskrit root Ayur means “longevity” or “life” and veda means “science”.
According to Ayurveda, each person will be influenced by certain elements more than others. This is because of their prakriti, or natural constitution.

There are two classifications of a person in Ayurveda. One relates to the body, and the second relates to the mind.

Guna Prakriti - Mental Constitution

Vedic philosophy classifies human temperaments into three basic qualities: satva, rajas and tamas. Relative predominance of either satva, rajas, or tamas is responsible for individual psychological constitution.

Satvic- Mental Constitutions:

The people in whom satvic qualities predominate are religious, loving, compassionate and pure minded. They have good manners, behavior and conduct.

Rajas Mental Constitutions:

The people in whom rajas qualities are predominate are egoistic, ambitious, aggressive, proud, competitive, and have a tendency to control others.

Tamas Mental Constitutions:

The people in whom tamas qualities predominate are less intelligent. They tend towards depression, laziness, and excess sleep, even during the day.

Deha Prakriti - Body Constitution

Every individual has a unique combination of the three doshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. To understand this individuality is the foundation of Diagnosis and Treatment in Ayurveda.

Vata Qualities:

Vata is dry, light, cold, mobile, active, clear, astringent, and it is dispersing. All of these qualities can manifest in an individual. They like jogging and jumping and don't like sitting in one place. The subtle quality is responsible for the emotions of fear, anxiety, insecurity and nervousness.

Pitta Qualities:

It has hot, sharp, light, liquid, sour, oily and spreading qualities. They are often wise, brilliant people, and can have a controlling, dominating personality. They have a tendency towards comparison, competition, ambition, and they have a quality of aggressiveness, so naturally they criticize. Pitta people tend to get inflammatory diseases, while vata predominant people tend to get neurological, muscular and rheumatic problems.

Kapha Qualities:

kapha will have heavy, slow, cool, oily, liquid, dense, thick, static and cloudy qualities. Because of the heavy quality, these people have heavy bones, muscles and fat. They have slow but prolonged, steady memory. Kapha people are forgiving, loving and compassionate. The kapha person has a sweet tooth and loves candy, cookies and chocolate.

Suppose you have a kapha (water) dominant constitution then you may have a tendency to over weight, over-emotional nature or suffer congestion in the chest. So you should modify your diet, life style, daily routine and other activities accordingly, for example, avoid sleeping too much in the day or eating too many sweets, to maintain your health and also to cure the diseases. Thus it is very important to know the personal Ayurvedic constitution.
