Abstract:
Background: Prakriti is one of the distinctive and elementary concepts of Ayurveda that explain the uniqueness, which is decided at the time of conception and later nurtured during the intrauterine life. There are so many aspects that influence the Prakriti of an infant; Kala- Garbhasaya Prakriti (season at conception) is one of them. Material and Methods: Prakriti of 226 infants was assessed thru PRS-IPA (Prototype Research Software-Infant Prakriti Assessment), while Kala (season) at conception of mother, Kala (season) at delivery of mother, time at delivery of mother and age of mother at the time of delivery were gathered by demographical data of research case sheet. Observation and Result: Total 226 infants were registered on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria of study after proper screening and consent. Prakriti of registered infants was assessed by software IPS-PRA and its relation was explored in relation to Kala (season) at conception of mother, Kala (season) at delivery of mother, time at delivery of mother and age of mother at the time of delivery. Discussion and Conclusion: Variation in incidence of infant’s Prakriti in relation to season at the time of conception may be attributed to other factors which play important contributory role in deciding the individual’s final Prakriti.Acharya Charak, Sushruta and Vagbhata have described that Vata, Pitta and Kapha Prakopa takes place in Varsha, Sharad and Basanta Ritu. This study showed more percentage of Kaphaja and Pittaja Prakriti of infants when mother conceive in Basanta and Sharada Ritu. This validated the concept of Ayurveda because Basanta Ritu is period of Kapha Prakop and Sharada Ritu is period of Pitta Prakop.
