Dr. Priyanka B. V.* and Dr. Abhijith Joshi

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda describes four type of Ayu (Life) i.e Hita (Wholesome), Ahita (Unwholsome), Sukha (Healthy) and Dukha (Unhealthy) with reference to Dravya (Substances), Guna (attributes) Karma (Action) and Pramana (Duration). The Explanation of Ayu indicates the complete Health concept of World Health Organization (WHO). Immunity in Ayurveda can be understood with the concept of Vyadhi Kshamatva (Capacity to fight against disease) and Bala (Strength). Vyadhi Kshamatva is the state of the body developed due to regular intake of Hita Ahara, to reduce the severity of disease and prevention of the same. The concept of immunity – the process which resists pathogenesis, is of Acquired or Innate. Innate immunity can be Sahaja

Yuktikruta Bala is following the right Ahara and vihara that helps to achieve immunity. achieve immunity. For example regular consumption of Nitya Sevaneyas or Ajasrika Rasayana according to matra considering Agni provides immunity against Vyadhi.
