Ayurvedic overview

In ayurveda we can correlate hepatic sarcoidosis with involvement of tridosha that is vaat (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (water). These three dosha are responsible for development of this disease. Balance of all three doshas leads to health and imbalance of these doshas leads to such diseases. Vaat is the life, strength and sustainer of creatures. Vitiation of vata takes place from either wasting of dhatus or obstruction in passage. Vata, pitta and kapha move in all the channels of the body. Due to subtleness, vaat itself provokes the other two doshas. When aggravated it excites them and carrying them to different places produces different disorders due to obstruction in passage and dries up rasa etc.
