ABSTRACT

Prakriti is one of the topic which has leveled up Ayurved from traditional science to modern science, to set a concrete base when it comes to study human behavior by all means. Features mentioned in Ayurvedic texts under Prakriti, needs a suitable criteria for assessment and its validation. The current topic is studied for validation of Pralamb bahu as one of the feature under Kapha Prakriti. It was studied in terms of Anguli pramana. Aims & Objectives – To assess Bahu in different Prakriti individuals. To validate the existence of Pralamba Bahu in Kapha doshaja Prakriti. Methodology- 100 students from GJP-IASR institute Anand, Gujarat were selected for the study. After assessing there Dehaprakriti, anthropometrics - Swa- Anguli pramana of their upper extremity were measured using measuring tape. Observations – Only 30 out of 100 volunteers were having dimensions of Bahu above 43 Anguli with male female ratio 13:17 respectively. The mean value of Bahu for left and right side was 46.30 Anguli and 46.53 Anguli respectively. The minimum – maximum range for bahu on left side was 43.1 Anguli to 51.3 Anguli, the same for right side was 43.1 Anguli to 51.9 Anguli. Discussion and Conclusion – Out of all the subjects showing feature of Pralamba Bahu, the majority of the population (63.33%) involves Kapha dosha in their constitutional make-up. A total of nine individuals (30%) were belonging to Kapha dominant Prakriti reflecting Pralamba Bahu as per Kapha doshaja Prakriti. The involvement of Kapha dosha in formation of Prakriti in this case is clearly indicative of major contribution of Kapha dosha in the development of extensively longer upper extremities manifesting Pralamba Bahu.
