Vātika (वातिक) is a Sanskrit word referring to a classification of human constitution (prakṛti) where Vāta-doṣa has its dominance. The word is used throughout Ayurvedic (India medicine) literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. A skilled physician should monitor the constitution of a patient during treatment with medicines and prescribing his diet. Vāta represents the “airy” element of the human body.
