Abstract

Ama is the outcome of improper digestion. The product which brings discomfort in Srotas is Ama. Agni is having great role in the formation of Ama. Ama formation takes place in Jataragni, Bhutagni and Dhatuagni level, mainly due to hypo functioning state of digestive fire.[1] Ama can be identified in body through urine examination, stool examination, blood investigation and biochemical test. Based on this, the concept of inflammatory condition, autoimmune diseases and other non communicable diseases can be identified and treated in Ayurveda. Thus for the treatment of Ayurveda understanding the concept of Ama is important.
