Ayurveda, ancient Indian system of health care, offers a natural way to maintain a healthy body. Ayurveda considers, the tridoshas (Vata, pitta and Kapha) as the energies of the body. Any imbalance in these doshas result in one or several health problems.
In Ayurveda, there is a theory of immunity, known as beej-bhumi theory, which means seed and land. In this theory, the body is related to the land while the infections are related to the seed. If there is accumulation of the ama in the body and the body is lacking the ojas, then the infection will find the fertile ground in the same way as the fertile land will sprout the seeds. On the other hand, if the digestion is strong and ojas are there, then the seeds of the infection will not affect the body just like infertile land will not sprout the seeds.
When the seasons change, then everyone is more susceptible to respiratory infections. This is because, the body functions differently in hot and cold seasons and digestive fire (Agni) can start to fluctuate irregularly. So, it is necessary to follow a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle otherwise, ama can build up in the body.
Respiratory illness and allergies are common in the fall and early spring. In the early spring, accumulated ama starts to melt, which in turn flooding the micro channels as well as overloading the immune system. The immune system of the body becomes weak as well as becomes the fertile ground for bacteria or allergens.
Immunity is quality or state of being immune or we can say a condition of being able to resist a particular disease especially through preventing development of a pathogenic microorganism or by counteracting the effects of its products. Whole immunity system consists of special cells, proteins, tissues and organs which defends people against germs and microorganisms every day. This type of protection is called immunity.
Infectious diseases and immunity disorders are a continuous threat to human well being. The objective of Ganga Pharmacy is offering the immunity to one and helps in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious disease and immunity disorders.
