Ayurvedic Concepts
Detoxify Yourself for Good Health
Dr. Paritosh Tyagi
Detox, short for detoxification, is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins are anything that can potentially harm body tissue, including waste products that result from normal cell activity, such as ammonia. Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes which reduce intake of toxins and improve elimination.

Agni karma is a result oriented therapy effective mainly in sthanika vatakaphaja disorders. It is an ambulatory treatment modality affordable to the common man.

Ayurvedic Constitution
Determine your Doshas
To help determine your constitution, we’ve provided a brief questionnaire below. We recommend printing out the questionnaire and circling the answers with a pen. For each statement listed beneath Vata, Pitta and Kapha, circle the number that most closely indicates how much it applies to you. Then, add up the numbers to get a total score for each dosha. We recommend first answering the questions in accordance with general trends throughout your life. This will give you a better understanding of your underlying birth constitution, or prakruti. Then answer the questions in accordance with how you look, feel, and behave today. For example, if you’ve slept well throughput your life, but just started having sleeping problems, the second set of answers will reflect this current imbalance, or vikruti. It’s also important to remember that most individuals have one primary dosha, followed by a prominent secondary dosha.
