Ayurveda for Autoimmune Disorders

Ayurveda for Autoimmune Disorders


Autoimmune disorders occur when the cells in the body are unable to recognize each other and mistakenly start attacking healthy cells - causing inflammation and can lead to various diseases. Autoimmune diseases are directly related to the digestive system, metabolism, and emotional body.

 

How can an Ayurvedic doctor help with autoimmune disorders?

Ayurveda believes that the problematic organ responds to the excessively accumulated burden on the tissues and tries to digest them. Ayurveda called the burden of these cells Ama or microscopic undigested food particles that are not properly distributed in the early stages of digestion and accumulate in the deepest tissues of the body. Ayurvedic treatment focuses on the restoration of Agni (digestive fire) and Oja (vitality, vigor, luster, power, bodily strength, energy). Autoimmune disorders are found in different parts of the body  - the common factor underlying all autoimmune diseases is inflammation.

Looking at Dosha's positions, one can see how individuals with Pitta dosha's dominant constitution would be prone to autoimmune disorders. But pitta does not work alone. Vata dosha is also involved. Vata is like a wind blowing on a fire. Inflammation spreads throughout the body, resulting in the fire settling in a weak spot and the disease progressing to that spot.

An Ayurvedic doctor will tailor your treatment plan based on your situation.
