In Ayurveda the term agni is used in a technical sense. Concept of agni is too vast, very much expansive and miraculous in nature. Aacharya sushruta has define swastha purusha as,when the tridosha are in the state of equilibrium, digestive fire (agni) is in a balanced state and the dhaatu(tissue) and mala (waste products) are work in a normal state.

In ayurveda it is stated that impaired agni is route cause of etiology of all types of diseases.
