Ayurvedic & disease

Within the lifestyle and hygiene Ayurveda it is considered that it is healthy when agni, the digestive fire, in order, all the elements are balanced, according to the constitution birth.

Are balanced; waste products such as urine, sweat and feces are produced in normal amounts. There is peace in the mind and you should feel comfortable in his / her work.

Own responsibility

Numerous reasons have to appoint that can cause disease. These causes can come from inside or outside. If the disease comes from within than you yourself are (largely) responsible. If it comes from the outside than another (largely) responsible.
For example if you eat something in a restaurant that's out of date, then you may have suffered food poisoning and here you are sick: then the cause of the disease from outside. And if you exercise and someone bump into you and you break your leg then the external cause. If you are a heavy smoker and you start experiencing your lungs, this is from within. Or if you like Vata type, knowing that you have suffered from the cold without a hat and coat outside in the cold comes and you get sick then it comes from within.

In ayurveda his body and mind one

A disturbance can begin spiritually and giving or other disturbance on the physical plane. Every perception, thought, feeling, emotion will exert a certain influence on vata, pitta and kapha. Through the doshas there will be a response on the cells, tissues and organs. Everything indicates a specific biochemical reaction. As anger or repressed anger can exert its influence on the gallbladder and small intestine. Fears and anxieties can alter the flora of the colon.

  • Vata is linked to anxiety, insecurity, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, sadness.
  • Pitta is associated with anger, hatred, envy, competition, criticism, condemnation, prejudice, sharp tongue, perfectionism.
  • Kapha is associated with greed, attachment, boredom, laziness, passivity.

Emotions have an affinity for certain organs in the body,

  • Sadness - lungs;
  • Anger - liver;
  • Hate - gallbladder;
  • Fear - kidneys and excretion;
  • Sadness - heart;
  • Attachment - spleen and spiritual awareness.

We must learn to be aware of the movements of the emotions, recognize this, feel. What is this? What does he do in the body? There learn to look at and let go again. we learn not really see the emotion, then there in the organ will be a weak spot, a khavaigunya, a place where future disease can manifest.

Stress is seen in Ayurvedic as the cause of disease, not only as a result of various circumstances. If we do not take seriously the above factors, maintaining troubled relationships suppress emotions overwhelm our senses will arise stress. Stress will create an imbalance in the doshas. Depending on the constitution they react to stress. Vata for example, anxiety, anger with pitta and kapha with overeating.

Vision of disease

In Ayurvedic the concept of disease does not exist as we know it. It is said; "Something is blocked." The process of a blocked situation in the body is as follows:
1. There is one event which is not harmonious, or worse, there is a trauma.
2. The emotion is not harmonized involved.
3. neglect or new events that associate consciously or unconsciously with the emotion of the trauma, there will be an accumulation of stress.
4. The next stage is the place of accumulation becomes saturated and the voltage gets a wandering character.
5. The tension attaches itself to vulnerable parts, the organs.
6. The person:  

  • heals
  • the disease becomes chronic
  • the person dies

In the first four phases, we can go to the doctor with vague symptoms. We feel that something is wrong. The doctor can not observe what is going on. In phase 5 and 6, the doctor can make a diagnosis.

Above describe the process, we can make ourselves aware. It should also be taken into account with an unknown cause. Keep in mind that you can not know everything. Think for example of karma, influence of stars at one time, the influence of unconscious thoughts and actions. We are not perfect, otherwise there could be no disease. This unknown cause should be accepted.


Ayurvedic has Panchakarma as the most comprehensive purification of body and mind. Here the body is stimulated to release and discharge of waste at a cellular level. It is a very profound experience with an impact on all areas of life.
