Everyone has unique physical appearance, intelligence, talent, attitude, aptitude and energy. Even the twins differ although it may be very minute.
Ancient ayurveda physicians acknowledge this with subtle state of mind. They observe and understand the functioning of ‘Laws of Life and Laws of Nature’. For the purpose of guidance about diet, exercise regime,life habits and medicines for individual they broadly divided all persons in three main groups, known as medical personality. Your diet, exercise regime and life habits must be compatible with your individual medical personality although it may vary a very little.
Now I educate you to find your own medical personality according to ancient ayurveda principles and my long clinical experience which I inherited through Guru-Shishaya Parampara.
There are three types of medical personalities i.e. VAT, PIT, KAPH. These vat, pit, kaphare visible by visible signs and symptoms in physical appearance of the body, functions in the body, immunity, in individual’s behaviour, thinking and intellectual process.
