Mandagni is the root cause of all diseases and is a causative factor for the production of Ama. Any factor which disturbs the directly or indirectly is the cause for the production of Ama. The dietetic indiscretions and emotional stress may impair the effective functioning of the neurohormonal mechanism are the main causative factor for developing Ama inside the body.

Langhana, Langhana and Pachana and Dosavasechana (Shodhana therapy) in mild, moderate and severe conditions according to its severity respectively.
