Abstract

CORRELATION BETWEEN KAPHA PREDOMINANT PRAKRITI (BODY CONSTITUTION) AND NIDRA (SLEEP PATTERN): A CROSS SECTIONAL SURVEY STUDY

Manisha B. Walunj*, Supriya P. Tonge and Ankush H. Gunjal

Abstract

Prakriti (constitution) is a unique concept of Ayurveda that seeks to explain the element of individuality by expressing the unique trait of an individual that is defined by the specific and permanent composition of their Dosha (primary elements/humors) at conception. Prakriti assessment is part of Dashavidha Parikshaa ten-point system of evaluation of an individual and helps the physician to suggest a proper diet and lifestyle to maintain an optimum state of health. It is also important for diagnosis and selection of drugs for specific treatment. In Samhita(treatises) many criteria have been given for assessment of Prakriti, Nidra (sleep) is one of them. Acharya Vagbhata opines that Kapha predominant Prakriti people tend to have more sleep(both in quantity and quality)-“Nidralu”. Hence study is designed to examine, “The pattern of Nidra (sleep) in Shleshmal/Kapha predominant Prakriti among the healthy individuals”. A cross sectional survey study was carried out with IEC approval.50 Kapha predominant Prakriti healthy individuals within age group of 18-40 years with informed consent were evaluated on the basis of sleep questionnaire to assess sleep pattern. Amongst screened participants 66% were observed to be Nidralu (tends to have more sleep). It implies that there is strong relation between Shleshmal/Kapha predominant Prakriti and Nidralutva (tend to have more sleep-both in quantity and quality).

Keywords: Prakriti, Nidra, Kapha Predominant Prakriti, Nidralu.
