Ayurveda means the science of life. It has its origin in India more than 3000 years back. The early knowledge of Ayurveda was transmitted orally through teacher disciple lineage. Later on, this knowledge was penned down and books of Ayurveda came into existence. Over thousands of years numerous books were written but the most important once have been studied and commented upon by successive generations. The three major texts of Ayurveda are:
- Charak Samhita
- Sushrut Samhita
- Astang Hruday

Ayurveda And Other Medical Sciences
Since centuries, trade has influenced cultures and health system was no exception to it. Ayurveda has influenced other medical sciences such as the Greek medicine, the Chinese medicine, the Unani and even the allopathic science. The present day evolved science of plastic surgery has its idea in the traditional Rhinoplasty (nose repair) performed in India since ages.
Ayurveda At Present
Traditionally, a health science practiced only in the Indian sub-continent; today Ayurveda has spread wide across oceans. In India, it is one of the main stream health practices and over 80% of the Indian population uses one or the other kind of Ayurvedic product. To practice Ayurvedic medicine in India, one has to undergo a compulsory 5.5 years undergraduate degree course – BAMS- including a mandatory 1 year internship period. Further study courses for masters and Phd programs are also undertaken by various universities in India, all under the regulations of AYUSH ministry which works for the development of Indian system of medicines. In the western countries, Ayurveda is practiced as complementary and alternative medicine and is gaining popularity day by day. In May 2016, WHO and AYUSH ministry joined hands for standardization and promotion of Ayurveda across various countries.
Ayurveda & The Human Body
Dosha, Dhatu & Mala are the building blocks of our body. To have a healthy body, it is imperative that there is a sustained balanced between them. The body requires them to flow continuously in order in the hollow spaces and channels. Any pathological condition or an ailment is a direct result of imbalance of these three. The immaculate balance is sustained on the healthy state of these channels, in other words, the circulatory systems. In Ayurveda treatment, diagnosis involves understanding the state of these channels and the balance of doshas & dhatus. A disease or an ailment is diagnosed by identifying which channel is affected and the nature and extent of their imbalance. According to Ayurveda, human body is categorized into different channels of circulatory systems or the organ systems – Strotas are comprised of gross channels and the subtle channels. The gross channels are the intestinal tract, lymphatic system, arteries, veins and the genitourinary tracts. The subtle channels include capillaries. These channels are the health indicators of the body. Diagnosis is carried out by identifying the individual doshas that are compromised and the channels which are obstructed. One compromised or vitiated dosha, which might be the original cause of the ailment, can travel through these channels and reach and affect other doshas too, causing an obstruction of strotas or channel. The natural flow is affected when this happens. All the channels are governed by Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
DOSHAS AND KAAL
In Ayurveda, Vata, Pitta and Kapha are known as the three doshas, or regulating forces of nature. These three doshas are made up of five elements: Vata comprises air and space, Pitta comprises fire and water, and Kapha water and earth. We describe below how the three doshas are affected by time and the external climate / seasons.
We know that Doshas get affected on practice of similar food and lifestyle. But apart from this they are also influenced by certain other factors such as:
- Time of day and night
- Time After food
Time Of Day And Night
|6 am to 10 am||Kapha|
|10 am to 2 pm||Pitta|
|2 pm to 6 pm||Vaata|
|6 pm to 10 pm||Kapha|
|10 pm to 2 am||Pitta|
|2 am to 6 am||Vaata|
Dominance of Doshas at particular time has a lot of significance in Ayurveda. For staying healthy it is important that our daily activities are tuned to the time of dominance of those Doshas – E.g. – vaata causes excretion of stools. So Ayurveda recommends waking up before 6 am so that the dominant vaata causes smooth defecation. It has been observed that people who get up late are found to suffer from problems in defecation such as constipation, fissure, piles, etc. The underlying principle behind this is that an agent can do his job best when he is powerful enough. E.g. – lunch is advised at around 12 noon. This is because the dominant pitta at this time helps in easy digestion. Here, one may ask that is it wise to have dinner at 12 midnight as pitta is powerful at that time also. But one must not think about the time factor alone. 12 noon and 12 midnight are different variety of aspects. At night, due to the absence of sun and the coolness of the surroundings as compared to day, the channels of the body are closed. But at noon, the presence of sun is felt strongly during afternoon which makes pitta more powerful. Hence dinner is not advised at night. In fact Ayurveda recommends having dinner before sunset.
From the clinical point of view, we often observe that children suffer more from kapha problems like cold, cough, etc. whereas acidity, heat are the problems seen often in middle age. Old persons are often the sufferers of joint pains, neck pain, etc.
TIME AFTER FOOD
|Upto 1.5 hrs after food||Kapha|
|1.5 to 3 hrs after food||Pitta|
|3 to 4.5 hours after food||Vaata|
(The time mentioned is not common for all persons. In some, it may be more than 1.5 hrs per stage or even less than that) After the intake of food, the food is first in the stomach where it is acted upon by kapha and moistened. During this phase, drowsiness and heaviness is common. After that the food reaches the small intestine where it is acted upon by pitta and separated into food juice and food waste. Food juice is absorbed and waste moves into the large intestine where it is acted upon by vaata. Water gets absorbed and solid waste is formed.
For the maintenance of health for a healthy individual, regular detoxification is advised once in a year. This has to be done at an appropriate season. For Vaman or vomiting to remove kapha, spring is the best season. For Virechan to remove pitta, fall is the best season. And for basti or enema for vaata, monsoon is the ideal season. This however does not mean that these procedures cannot be done in other seasons. In case of disease, the procedures can be performed in any season.
