Body Tissues (Dhatus) and Doshas (Body Humours)

After the Jatharagni/s, and the Bhutagni/s do their job, it is turn for Dhatvagni/s (7 of them), to help form the Dhatus (The body Tissues).

The Body Tissues:

These are Plasma (Rasa, Nourishment) => Blood (Raqta, Life activities, Haemoglobin Part) => Muscle (Mamsa, Enveloping) => Fat (Medas, Lubrication, The Adipose Tissue) => Bones (Asthi, Supporting) => Bone Marrow (Majja, Filling up the inside of bones, The Nerve Tissue) and => Semen/Ovum (Shukra, Reproduction). Starting from Plasma, the percentage of each body tissue goes into the manufacture of the next body tissue.

Ojas is taken as the essence of Dhatus (The subtle component of Kapha), and is constituted as the eighth Body Tissue (Dhatu). It resides throughout the body, and gets depleted by loud music, excess sex, talking too much, stress, grief, excess working etc. The result would be poor body lustre, cheerlessness, weak immune system etc.

Additionally, some secondary Bodily tissues are: Mammary Glands (Breast Milk); Arteries & Veins; Ligaments, Tendons, Cartilages; Peritoneal Fat in the Abdomen; Teeth; Nerve Tissues; The Ojas.

Waste Products are Phlegm (Kapha); Excess Pitta; Excretions of the Eyes, Nose, Ears, Naval; Sweat (Sweda, Decrease leads to falling of hair, stiffness of hair, loss of lustre, and cracking of the skin); Body Hairs, nails etc.; Faeces (Purisha); Urine (Mutra); Other Waste Products of Body tissues.

In which body part, which Dosha is prominent, is already stated. This relation is such, that if we reduce one (like, by medicines, therapies etc.), the corresponding also automatically gets reduced, such as if I reduce Kapha in the body, the Meda and Mamsa would automatically get reduced. Thus, if I need to cure Obesity, I simply go on to reduce the Kapha in the body, and the body fat (The Medas) automatically gets reduced. This relation is not applicable in case of Bones (Asthi) and Vata (The air component).

Different Personalities: Depending on which Dosha, or their combination is prominent, we have different human personalities, such as, Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Vata/Pitta, Pitta/Kapha, Kapha/Vata & Tridosha (Present equally). The Doshas (V, P, K), Body Tissues and the Waste materials form the Causes, Chief Constituents and the Support of our body throughout the span of our life.

Sharing is Caring!

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
