Vata, Pitta and Kapha determine the nature of our body. The internal energy we talk about is about all these three and their balance. Vata, Pitta and Kapha work to give speed to our body. Therefore, it is very important to keep its balance. If their balance is disturbed, then you can fall prey to many dangerous diseases.
According to Swami Ramdev, Vata Pitta and Kapha are called Tridosha. Due to their inconsistency, chronic diseases occur. According to Ayurveda, there are 28 diseases in Kapha Dosha, 40 diseases in Pitta disease, and 80 types of diseases in Vata Dosha. The phlegm problem arises in the upper part of the chest. At the same time, the problem of bile occurs under the chest and in the waist. Other than this, the problem of Vata occurs in the lower part of the waist and hands. The problem of this Tridosha can be corrected with yoga asanas, pranayama and home remedies.
