Ayurveda believes that human diseases are unlimited How many afflictions have been in the past and how many will evolve in the future, there is no definite answer. The number of human diseases may be indefinite, but their treatment can be simple. We can fight and win serious complex diseases by focusing our attention on primary cause of disease.
Disease according to Ayurveda is caused by dysregulation and depletion of vata and agni elements. Our immune system is dependent on integrity of tridoshas viz. vata-pitta-kapha. The body's natural immune system plays a major role in preventing even serious diseases like cancer and AIDS.
The factors that cause the degeneration of immune system are many, a primary one being depletion and dysregulation of vata and agni elements. This basic pathology can be corrected by ayurvedic panchkarma, rasayana, special diet and support of Panch yoga (Yama-Niyama-Asana-Pranayama-Dhyana).
