Ayurvedic Overview

In ayurveda, we can correlate this disease with vitiated vata, pitta and kapha doshas. All the three doshas are linked with each other. When kapha is vitiated then it accumulates in the body tissues and increases the pitta dosha. Due to vitiated kapha and pitta dosha, the channel of vata gets affected that causes the pain in tissues and accumulated kapha leads to inflammation in various organs of the human body. All the doshas move on the wrong path and afflict the body with disorders relating to their location and functions and take away life shortly. In this raktavaha srotas is impaired and develops the symptoms of this disease.
