    One thought on “Prakriti: Your Ayurvedic Constitution (Your Ayurvedic Constitution Revised Enlarged Second Edition)”

    1. Wow. Right from the start, the way this man put words together captured me--I felt like he was a father figure because of the combination of care and prudence in his word choice. The cadence of language and his construction of the ideas is lovely and this is essential because the ideas are complex and at times run the potential of clashing with the things we assume contribute to our health, but don't always. Ayurveda was always in the back of my mind a science of health vagaries based on loose r [...]

    2. Allora buon libro divulgativo su un importante aspetto dell'Ayurveda, ossia la Prakriti individuale (la costituzione dell'individuo). In un certo senso attraverso la trattazione di quest'aspetto vengono viste altre cose legate all'Ayurveda e alla medicina ayurvedica. Svoboda è scorrevole, interessante, a tratti ironico e non particolarmente fanatico. Tutto ok finché non sono entrata nel capitolo sull'immortalità. Poiché Svoboda porta avanti discorsi non suoi, la parte che tratta l'immortalit [...]

    3. Gorgeous. Poetic. Deep. The first book I ever read on Ayurveda and I continue to re-read it because Svoboda really brings the beauty of Ayurveda to life. There's also great practical knowledge that's easy to apply. I can't recommend this book more highly for those who want to live healthier and more harmonious lives.

    4. Dr. Svoboda's book is a wonderful introduction for people new to the 'science of life' as well as a wonderful reference book to have on hand.

    5. a good explanation into the doshas (especially covering dual dosha constitutions), imbalance, and how to help heal. definitely worth the read if you're a beginner studying ayurveda.

    6. The least fluffy, deepest, most grounded, and rawest book on ayurveda I have read so far. Goes way beyond finding out your dosha. Lots of in depth explanation and instruction.

    7. Prakriti is an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning more about Ayurvedic principles for health and wellness. This book is fairly comprehensive and covers much more than just dosha identification and diet. The disease and rejuvenation sections were particularly interesting for developing an alternate understanding of how illnesses such as IBS, allergies, and asthma develop and can be successfully treated without pharmaceutical interventions. As a Kapha-Vata entering the Vata lifec [...]

    8. I can rarely say that I know a substantial amount more on a subject after finishing a book. Prakriti is an exception. This was one of the smartest purchases I made so far in 2017 & a reference book I plan to return to in the years to come. (And I have read a fair bit on Ayurveda!) Highly recommended.

    9. In my humble opinion, it's the best introductory Ayurveda book out there. You get the sense that the author actually knows what he's talking about as opposed to having recently jumped on the alternative medicine bandwagon. Definitely recommend.

    10. Easy to read, comprehensive book. Clear explanation about Prakriti and why it is important. Everything is clearly explained and that makes it easy to implement the changes to your diet and lifestyle that will bring balance. Love this book.

    11. The content of the book is great and many of the things are quiet new for me.This book will give you all the pointers to find your body type(Dosha) viz Vata,Pitta And Kapha or may be combination of these three.At some points you lose interest because of the writing style of the author.Some time book jump into deep philosophy and forgets its informative tinge.That’s the reason I rated it 3 but it’s actually 3.8😁A must read book if you want to know your basic making according to Ayurveda an [...]

    12. This book is a classical entry in Ayurveda.In general, it has all the basic information that is needed.As for me, I would like to add that to live completely on Ayurveda is a rather ridiculous (considering the way hindus are living as well as defference between the modern world and the past), but some things are really helpful and easy to verify in practice, because it's interesting to experiment and test Ayurveda on yourself.

    13. I wish this book would be made part of school curricula. This basic, accessible knowledge of the human body and mind has the power to transform how you live and how you evolve in this lifetime. None of Svoboda's remedies and explanations are unnecessarily esoteric - mens sana in corpore sano is best achieved with simple, natural and inexpensive changes to diet, routine and thinking. Prakriti is an invaluable guide in this effort.

    14. I really enjoyed this book, as it broke down things in a very easy-to-understand way. I definitely use this book a lot to help me with figuring out what I should be eating and how I should be moving/exercising based on where I am experiencing imbalances. I think this is a great reference for anyone newer to Ayurveda.

    15. I am currently re-reading this book as it is so good - it is great for those new to ayurveda because it is so easy to read. Other books by the likes of David Frawley and Vasant Lad are just as good but I feel those are best for when you know more about ayurveda (but that really isn't a criticism against those authors).

    16. A short overview of ayurveda. I actually consider this a text, as it was reviewed by one of the pioneer's in american ayurveda. I think this is the best written book on ayurveda I have come across so far, and I refer to it often. It could benefit from additional detail describing food choices for each dosha.

    17. Prakriti means nature in Sanskrit. A great book that covers the ancient aspects of Ayurveda in simple language to achieve physical, mental and spiritual well being for constant evolution. It helps you understand your ayurvedic constitution and what you need to do to achieve a balance and touches upon habits of eating, routine, life style, handling disease and enabling rejuvenation.

    18. This is one of the best, most accessible books to learn about one's Ayurvedic Constitution. It's also one of the only books I've come across that comprehensively addresses the dual constitutions (of which I'm one!) so I'm thrilled to finally have this book. I will be turning to this book as a reference again and again.

    19. Ayurveda is fascinating. That's for sure. Don't know how to give a star rating to something so new to me and a completely different system than how I understand the world. I can't say how correct the content is, but it's written in a way that I came to slowly comprehend the definitions and ideas.

    20. This is an intriguing look into Ayurvedic medicine. Full of advice and recommendations to keep all the different types healthy. It should also help increase people's suspicion of redheads and the folklore that hold that they are constitutionally different from the rest of us.

    21. Part of our 200 hour yoga teacher training, this book my best recommendation for an introduction to Ayruveda.

    22. A must read for anyone interested in Ayurveda. The concepts behind Ayurvedic medicine are well explained. And the book shows how Ayurvedic medicine works in practice.

    23. A great westerner's practical and informational guide to Ayurveda. I follow its principles off and on and they truly make a difference when I'm on them.

    24. Can't say I'd recommend this to anyone. As far as I can tell Ayurveda is mostly quackery with a little bit of useful herbalism mixed in.
