Dr. Svoboda’s original work on the constitutional types in Ayurveda has been considered a classic for many years. His new revision and expansion of the subject comes after much further research and practical experience. The healing science of Ayurveda is based totally upon the knowledge of prakriti – the individual constitution. If every individual knows his own constitution, then one can understand, for instance, what is a good diet and style of life for oneself. – Dr. Vasant Lad.
