According to Ayurvedic fundamentals, we all are born different and every individual’s body constitution is different. For example our body structure, body temperature or immune system is different from one another. Hence same types of food or same daily lifestyle regime will not suit everyone. This is why Ayurveda gives specific diets for each constitutional type.

            To determine your body type as per Ayurvedic system, respond to the following questions given in the test. Try to choose an answer which fits you the closest. Answer as per your lifetime tendencies, 'Prakriti' how you have been or felt most of your life. Prakriti will determine your birth constitution.

We will email you details about your body constitution and sample diet as per your body type once you submit the answers.
