Ayurveda is a science with holistic approach in the management of different diseases. Dravya is the entity which has been given with prime importance for its role in the prevention and treatment of different ailments. Generally Dravya act according to Rasa, Guna, Virya and Vipaka. In some other conditions the action of Dravya cannot be expressed or explained with the help of Rasa, Guna, Virya and Vipaka. Diseases will be manifested because of the involvement of single Dosha or in combination with other Dosha or all three together. It will be easy to understand the symptomatology of Ekadoshaja Vyadhi but situation will be little typical and difficult to understand in case of two (Samsargaja) or three (Sannipataja) Dosha involvement in few diseases like Sannipataja Jwara. In such conditions concept of Vikruthi Visama Samavetha is helpful. In this paper an effort will be made to understanding the concept of Vikruthi Visama Samavetha.Keywords: Dravya, Rasa, Dosha, Vyadhi, Vikruthi Vishama Samavetha.
