Concept of Vata Vs Nervous System
AbstractIncreased awareness about Ayurveda and the need of Ayurveda in the present society demands to understand and emphasize the depth of Ayurvedic principles in an easy and more transparent mode.
Even though the contemporary science is developing very fast with so many new research works in the field of medicine, it will not be an exaggeration to say about Ayurveda - that it has already established its unique identity and it has been continuing its onward march with added illumination.
Every concept of Ayurveda is postulated and explained on the basis of panchamahabhuta, Doshas represent the existence of pancha maha bhuta in our body, and everything is panchabhutika in the universe. Whatever may be the development in Contemporary science the ultimate treatment depends on management of panchamahabhutas for which the approach of Ayurveda is crucial.
Vata one among the three basic humors plays a major role in both health and disease condition. Most of the vata disorders discussed in Ayurveda are being diagnosed under neurological disorders in modern medicine. Hence an attempt has been made to understand the physiological activities of vata with special reference to neurophysiology.
