Ayurveda Theory of Diseases
Ayurveda understanding of the diseases process

The doshas may change their proportional balance as a result of a variety of factors, such as inappropriate lifestyle, diet, activities, mental and physical trauma, which are mainly brought about by the lack of understanding about our own bodies. When there is a change taking place within us, which is pre-clinical in its development stage, it may take a very long period of time for signs and symptoms to appear. Very often, when there is change taking place, disease may take a path along the inherited weak areas of the individual.

Sometimes, in certain individuals, disease may set in beyond the control of the individual and these are known as Karmic diseases due to the theory of cause and effect.

Ayurvedic medications are mostly herbal preparations and some include natural mineral preparations. All herbs or minerals possess the following properties according to ayurveda:

Rasa = Taste

Guna = Quality

Virya = Potency (heating or cooling effects)

Vipaka = Effect after digestion and metabolism

Prabhave = Specific power of the substance

In general, all herbs have the power to increase or decrease the three doshas, Vata, Pitta or Kapha, to different extents and in different combinations.

Classical ayurveda applies theory into practice. Firstly, a physician will prescribe suitable herbs in single or combined form, with the appropriate dosage to control ailments.
