Prakruti - Genetic Constitution
When the Doshas are balanced according to our Prakruti, they support the body. When not in balance, they cause disease, emotional imbalance and health disorders. Our skin is the best diagnostic tool to determine this imbalance. Due to over-indulgence in food and an unbalanced lifestyle, toxins accumulate resulting in ailments and ultimately ageing.
This Dosha blueprint is also found in all matter including plants.
