Abstract

Vata is Prana of human as it is responsible for all Cheshtas i.e. movement. Acharya Charaka has mentioned the qualities of Vata in Vatakalakaliya Adhyaya that the Vata Dosha, when it is normal sustains the functioning of all the organs of the body, initiates all the actions and coordinates, stimulates all the sense organs. Gati is the unique feature of Vayu. The deranged Vata functions lead to different disorders related to movements; sensory organs etc and also affect the strength and span of life. Vata gets vitiated by Dhatukshaya, Avarana by Pitta and Kapha. Vata alone causes 80 diseases. Different treatment modalities are explained for each Doshas individually called Doshopakramas. Vatopakrama means treatment modalities helps in mitigating Vata Dosha and balance Vata Dosha. Snehana, Swedana, Basti are considered best therapies in all types of Kevala Vatajanyavyadhis. Considering the Nidana and Samprapti of Vata Vyadhi, one can treat Vata Dusti successfully by applying appropriate Vata Upakramas.
