Ayurveda

The whole concept of Ayurveda treatment revolves around three doshas (viz. Vatta, Pitta & Kapha) and Agni. It is believed that if these three doshas and agni are in a balanced state then the body is free from any kind of diseases.

Agni plays the most important role in keeping our body disease free. Thirteen types of agnis are recognized in Ayurveda:
a) 7 ‘ Dhatvagnis’ b) 5 ‘ Bhootagnis ’ c) 1 Jatharagni

Jatharagni is the supreme of all these agnis and controls the other twelve aganis.

Ayurvedic pathology of disease revolves around the imbalance of this agni. It is mentioned that the agni is responsible for the digestion of food. If it is not performing its function of digestion properly, then it leads to the formation of ‘Aam’ (Toxins due to undigested part of food) and this ‘Aam’ is responsible for the disease as it causes imbalance of the doshas.

CAUTION
