DISEASE INCIDENCE AND ITS ASSORTED COMPONENTS- AN AYURVEDIC STANDPOINT
Sushant Sud*, Khyati Sud, C.H. Babaria
In spite of a highly rational and inventively developed brain, mankind is ultimately a mortal race of creatures and owing to this, it has been disturbed every now and then with sudden and severe ravages of various diseases which require different remedies ranging from mere witchcrafts to the intake of certain rubbish things. The history of Ayurved may be traced as far back as the history of mankind itself. It is an intuitive science preached by Lord Brahma and put into scientific practice by the saints of the pre-historic period. Owing to this, it has got a vast philosophical background and its approach to each and every aspect of life has been more or less philosophical. This is how it differs from the modern medical science. It may be clearly understood that as the fundamental principles of Ayurved and Modern medical science are concerned, they appear to be identical, and however they differ from each other in almost all the aspects of disease production and etiology. According to Ayurved ideology, the Dosha, Dhatus and the Malas are the three basic elements, constituting the body. They are being supported by the Agnis and Srotas in production and transportation of their respective derivatives.
