Abstract

CONCEPT OF ALLERGIC DISORDERS IN AYURVEDA - A REVIEW ARTICLE

Himadri Arya*, Swati Bhandari and Sanjay Kumar Singh

Abstract

Tridoshas are the body humours or forces responsible for health and disease in accordance with their state of equilibrium and imbalance. Among various groups of disorders, the occurrence of allergic disorders has increased over the years. This may be due to faulty lifestyle i.e use of canned food, fast food, adulterated food, alcoholism, smoking, use of synthetic clothes or environmental pollutants etc. These results in imbalance of tridosha and hypofunction of agni which produces ama. Ama is the root cause of allergic disorders because our body recognizes ama as a foreign substance (allergen). As a result, vata or pitta or kapha type of allergies may occur in the body. Allergy itself is not a disease but it gets manifested as a symptom in various types of disease. It is defined as a hypersensitive rapid immunogenic response against a particular antigen i.e., dust, pollen, food, drugs, microbes & various chemicals and endogenous self-antigens. So, proper healthy lifestyle helps in maintaining the balance between the tridosha thereby preventing allergic disorders.

Keywords: Tridoshas, Ama, Dosha, Allergy, Hypersensitivity.
