Concept Of Disease According To Ayurveda
Ayurveda has a very profound insight in understanding the disease and its time of manifestation and the various approaches to treat the diseases.
This particular verse from the classical Ayurveda text beautifully describes it.
Tat shantihiaushadhaihi, daanaihi, japahomasuaarchanaihi.”
All diseases are rooted in the mind before manifesting. (mind has a longer shelf life than the physical body. The imprints of the mind gets carried forward to the next body. This is known as repeated births. According to Ayurveda the seeds of diseases are carried in the mind and they manifest at appropriate times during one’s life. According to Vedic astrology, which is also in line with Ayurvedic principles, Planetary forces govern the expressions of these imprints (KARMA) in the mind.
