The Reason for diseases is dosha imbalance in the body. According to Ayurveda, the presence of all three Dosha is found in the body of every human being. All these three Dosha are not found equally, but if there is an excess of Vata dosha in one’s body, then there is an excess of Pitta dosha in someone’s body, it is an excess of Kapha dosha. On the basis of this, the nature of bodies is divided into Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Their excess at a normal level does not give rise to diseases in the body but creates a special dosha nature of the body. But when all these three doshas become abnormally imbalanced then the body starts moving towards diseases. The imbalance of Vata causes 80 diseases, the imbalance of Pitta causes 40 and the imbalance of Kapha causes 20 types of diseases.
