The Birth of Treatments in Ayurveda

Updated: Jun 1, 2019

When we look Jwara chikitsa explained in Ashtanga Hrudayam by Vaghbhata Acharya, it is possible to summarise different diseases conditions (Vydhyavastha) and specific treatments for each conditions.

The treatment should be given for the specified conditions seen in the diseases (Vydhavastaha) but not only to the diseases (Vaydhi).

The diagnosis of the Tridosha vitiation (Dosha vinischaya) , the derangement of Dhathu (Dhathu dushti) and Mala (Mala dushti) , diagnosis of the diseases (Roga Vinischaya) are needed for a traditional Ayurveda treatment and it is very important to find out the disease condition for the starting of the treatment. The birth of treatment is according to the conditions of the disease. When we forget this and start the treatment according to the disease, the treatment can be unsuitable to the patient.

Vagbhata explains this in a very classical manner in Jwara chikitsa which can be taken into any diseases. We can see the conditions explained in jwara are following in all diseases. Only we should find, which dosha is involved, in which dhathu or mala the problem is?

You can see a loss of appetite, depressions, accumulation of endotoxins in stomach or sinuses, thirst etc even in a simple headache or in a cancer or other diseases. This should be taken care of in each patient and that is the stating point of treatment or birth of treatment.
