The Types of Diseases

Types of Diseases from The Ayurvedic Point of View are:

  1. Diseases easily curable,
  2. Diseases curable with some difficulty,
  3. Ones that can be controlled, but not cured,
  4. Not curable: These, I guess, would mostly relate to genetic-birth disorders. Otherwise, even if a disorders has reached an incurable stage, Pranayama and Meditation may still work wonders,
  5. Additionally, Psychic Diseases are caused due non-fulfilment of desires and facing of the undesired. Psychological diseases of the mind are Rajasic and Tamasic. 

Yet another Classification-Types of Diseases:

  1. Samanya Vyadhi (Samanya actually means ordinary): Caused due vitiation of one or more of Doshas (V-P-K). These would also include ‘Exogenous Diseases’ such as due nails/teeth biting, exorcism, curse, contact of evil spirits, accident/injury/trauma/wounds, piercing, twisting, compression, hanging, burns, thunder-storm, Microbial Infections (any and all, ref Classification of Diseases) and so on…
  2. Nanatmaja Vyadhi: These are caused due vitiation of only one Dosha at a time. The Ayurvedic Scriptures state:
  • 80 disorders caused due vitiation of Vata alone, such as Cracking of Skin-Nails, Numbness or Stiffness-Cramps of body parts such as of Ankle, Sciatica, Paraplegia which is impairment of motor-sensory organs in lower extremities of body, Rectum Prolapse, Improper Peristaltic Movement, Diarrhoea, Excess height or Dwarfism, Arthritis, Hoarseness of Voice, Pain in Tooth-Jaws-Lips, Deafness, paralysis, Convulsions, Unstable Mind-Other Mental Disorders…
  • 40 disorders caused due vitiation of Pitta alone, such as Burning Sensation [Body, Chest…], Skin Blemishes-Black Pimples-Rashes, Eructation, Excess Perspiration-Thirst, Fissures on Body-Fistula-Haemorrhoids, Boils-carbuncles on Body, Foul Smell from Body, Jaundice-General Yellowing of Body-Yellow Urine-Stool, Ulcers of Eyes-Mouth-Stomach-Rectum-…) and
  • 20 disorders caused due vitiation of Kapha alone, such as Laziness-Fatigue-excess sleep, Indigestion, Obesity, Constriction of Boy Channels, Goitre, Excess Salivation-Sweet Taste in Mouth, Anorexia…

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'.
