Ayurvedic Biology

A basic concept in Ayurveda is prakriti or the constitutional type of individuals, which is fixed at conception and determines one’s predisposition to diseases as well as response to treatment. Also, the very well established therapeutics in this school of tropical medicine ‘Panchakarma’ attracts patients from India and abroad for the treatment of many disorders. Of the five procedures which constitute panchakarma, basti (enema) is most important and is used extensively in the treatment of obesity. With the advancements in microbiome science, our group in collaboration with experts and physicians in Ayurveda have initiated a study to explore the underlying biological mechanisms through the microbiome perspective.
