The Ayurvedic Aspect of Disease
According to Ayurveda Bartonellosis is correlated with Agantuj vyadhi and predominance of pitta and vata dosha in the body. Due to predominance of pitta dosha there is the formation of ama in the body. In Bartonellosis there is predominance of vata dosha with rakta dushti in the body. Due to this predominant dosha and dhatu dushti there is strotodushti and hence, the pathogenesis of the disease is made. Ayurveda regimen helps in the pacification of predominant dosha as well as improves dhatu dushti. Along with that dietary instructions and lifestyle modification also help in improving the condition.
