Six stages of the disease
Ayurveda / / August 12, 2017
weakness inner fire - this is the root cause of any illness.Vata - the main cause of any disease.Ama - main agent, feeding the disease.All disease in all doshas involved, are six stages of development.
As a result, the influence of pathogenic factors, one or more doshas begin to accumulate in places of their primary residence: Kapha - in the stomach, Pitta - in the small intestine, cotton - in the colon.
Each of them produces the characteristic symptoms for themselves: kapha creates lethargy, heaviness in the limbs, pallor, bloating, loss of appetite and easing digestion.Pitt gives a burning sensation, fever, bitter taste in the mouth yellowing of the skin, increased acidity in the stomach and anger.Vata causes weakness and dryness in the body, the desire to insulate and warm, stiffness or overcrowding abdomen, flatulence, constipation, sleep disorders, and fears.At this stage of doshas remove excess body easier than later.Therefore, health promotion are important seasonal cleansing - th
At this stage, which literally means 'rage' doshas continue to rise and put pressure on the place of residence, showing the above symptoms in a more pronounced form.And yet, at this stage, to eliminate the doshas still fairly simple, but it is necessary to strengthen and organs in which they are stored, because these bodies are under stress from excessive presence of the doshas.
Dosham not necessarily pre accumulate to "come into a rage", - if the main reason is strong enough, the excitation of the doshas can happen immediately.A good example - the common cold.Some colds occur because of mucus caused by the accumulation of doshas, while others appear immediately after exposure.The latter may happen if a person just goes frosty winter night from a warm house.Because of the cold in the head overlapping channels, and there are doshas (and this is usually wool and kapha) immediately excited, even if they are in equilibrium in their places of the main residence.
If the excitation is neglected, the doshas are leaving their homes and start as a tramp, wandering around the body in search of a place where they could find some shelter.All previous symptoms worsen, kapha can cause vomiting, pitta - diarrhea, wool - cramps in the colon and pain during bowel movements with the release of large amounts of gases.Spread may also occur without prior accumulation of excitation or doshas - they can move under the influence of an excited wool.
Vata can deduce from equilibrium powerful destabilizing factors.Such factors are, for example, a strong desire (especially sexual), forced insomnia, talkativeness, hyperactivity (especially on an empty stomach), vomiting or diarrhea (caused without proper training), a great joy, a strong sadness, control natural reflexes (eg,sneezing, cough).
interrupt the natural movement of wool, or rhythm in itself sufficient to give effect to many disease processes.Under the influence of wayward doshas wool may ascend, descend and spread through the body, causing disturbances there, where they were brought by the wind wool.In Sanskrit wayward wool called pratiloma, which literally means "against the grain", and it is no coincidence, since the direction of movement of cotton directly related to the direction of hair growth on the human body.The coat, which is a kind of waste from the production of the bone (ie the tissue in which the wool predominates), - an external indicator of what is happening inside the wool body movement.The surgeon operates on the principles of Ayurveda, never makes an incision on the skin against the direction of hair growth, as this would mean too much interference for wool, which causes the patient to additional pain and slows healing.Until wool pratilomy remains as it creates a functional obstacle to the movement of various substances in the channels.The goal of treatment - once again turn it into Anulov, ie "on the current growth of the hair."
Imagine that you, like many people today, living mostly head and body are not paying enough attention.Such forcible retention of power in the upper body weakens downward movement Apana (the form of cotton breeding waste management) and turns it into pratilomu.And since pratiloma Apana can not properly perform the Apana functions appear constipation, retention of urine, colic, flatulence, impotence and even endometriosis (due to hit menstrual blood, which normally has to be passed out of the body, the abdominal cavity).Pratiloma Apana, upsetting other types of wool, can cause headaches.This example is a good illustration of the chain of causes that really is a vicious circle: the energy in the head upsets Apana and Apana energy spoils in the head.One reinforces the other, and get out of this vicious circle can only be breaking it.
Vata is straying from the right path when it ceases to move in a natural rhythm for himself.Good samskaras train the body and mind to the fact that living in harmony with both the internal rhythms, and with external mouths.The probability of imbalance and disease at the same time significantly reduced.Bad samskaras make a person vulnerable to parasites on various planes of existence.Is needed for good health "grace under pressure", that is the ability to act in accordance with the season (the mouth) and outer rhythm (mouths) even in the most unfavorable circumstances, so that the wool is still flowing in the right direction and with the correct timing.Gati
wool - is, on the one hand, a method for motion wool body, and the other - the direction of the movement.Upward movement pratilomy Apana is an example of abnormal causeway, and what kind of fabric upset by wayward Apana, will depend on its marga, that is, from the way the body follow.The word is related to the way the Sanskrit word patha with the same value.From the word comes the word patha patha, which means something inherent in this way, "track".In the treatment of disease pat-hya - a specially selected diet and regimen, which return to the inherent wandering dosha her way, but a man - to his peculiar life path.Like "putelogii" Dr. Bernie Siegel (a pun on the "pathology"), Ayurvedic pathology indicates how well a person adheres to their way of life, as it is reflected in the ways of the doshas in the body.
Each disease is in its own way.In Tibetan medicine it is believed that the disease remains and spreads in the skin, the flesh develops, moving through the channels, adhering to the bones and descends to the vital organs and authorities of the tanks.In Ayurveda, this system is divided into three marga, or three ways in which the disease is: internal (visceral), external (peripheral) and the median, otherwise known as Marma.
inner passage consisting of the digestive tract tissues and races, usually the first to be impacted by the doshas as those naturally concentrate in the main digestive organs.If you do not eliminate the activity of the purified doshas or at least weaken them, then sooner or later they will change their direction of movement (gati), and instead to flow out of the body, will begin to flow into his peripheral passage, consisting of the six other tissues.If the imbalance is aggravated by taking stimulants, strong allopathic medicines or just depressive emotions, then the ama and dosha penetrate deeper into the tissue and enter the pass Marma, which includes all the vital organs, especially the heart and brain.Although three paths are gradually deepening the penetration of the disease in an organism, expression of the disease in each period is normally limited by any one path.If it affects more than one way, the treatment becomes more problematic.
But whatever direction, and whatever way is elected doshas, in the end, they seek out a comfortable place for the main attack.
As a rule, the doshas are located in areas of the body that have been weakened.Charaka compares this process with the rain.A cloud floats in the sky as long as is appropriate in the atmospheric conditions that are pushing it out to get rid of the goods it contains water.Similarly, when circulating doshas find a suitable location for focusing, they accumulate therein and cause a specific disorder, either physically or functionally preventing the normal operation at that location spaced channels.Here, no matter how intensely involved tissue and waste: they are not the direct cause of the disease.The disease is caused by the presence in the tissues or waste excited dos, just like the burn from touching the red-hot nail is called the prisoners in iron heat, and not by the nail.All illnesses, even those that are caused by pathogenic micro-organisms are classified in accordance with behind them doshas, which are the true causes of disease.
At this stage, there are tentative signs heralding the onset of disease.Pulmonary tuberculosis often begins with the rise in temperature in the evening, accompanied by a burning sensation in the feet and hands.The first signs of diabetes - frequent urination, especially at night.Diarrhea is often preceded by constipation, but about starting a fever usually indicates changeable desire first to heat and then to cool.
At this stage, the disease is recognized as such.For example, when the wool because of its dryness changes the taste with sweet ojasa inherent in his binder and transfers it to the urinary organs, the result is diabetes.
specific form of the disease is detected as a result of specialization, which is generally characterized by the predominance of a particular dosha.For instance, edema is swelling of the skin, muscle or other tissue, usually as a result of accumulation of the liquid.Swelling caused mainly kapha, when pressed left fossa;caused wool - do not leave the pits;caused by Pitta, very soft.Almost all diseases have several varieties.
