Ayurveda means the science of life. This ancient, complex and elegant medical system from India needs a lifetime of study. Very simply put, every individual can be seen as falling into 3 major types-vata, pitta and kapha or a combination of these doshas based on their physical body type, temperament, lifestyle and genetics.
When a person’s constitution/Prakrithi is out of balance, they may be prone to disease processes characteristic of that constitutional type. The goal of Ayurveda is to provide people with an understanding of their individual nature.
With this awareness, people can make lifestyle choices that maintain balance within their constitution and improve their overall health. Dr. Kapoor always utilizes these core principle in her determination of the best treatment plan for her patients
