Any disease is the most unwanted condition in everyone’s life. Diseases physically & mentally disturbs us; our family & socially. Also they ruin our valuable savings as well.

Everyone wants to be fit; but many few people follow  the needed criteria for being healthy & fit, such as regular exercises, morning walk, Fresh Food to eat & at regular timings, good sleep at proper timings, eating all the seasonal fruits, avoiding heavy stress, etc these are many things & everybody should make a good timetable to be healthy.

What is the health? Most of the people says:- “absence of diseases is health.” But it’s not totally true. The exact definition of health is described in Ayurveda and it’s closest similar definition is accepted by WHO also.


This is the complete & detailed definition of health described in Ayurveda literature. As per this definition the following things should be in optimum state

  1. Absence of diseases.
  2. All doshas( vata, pitta,kapha) at their own contribution.
  • All vital organs & physiology at optimum level.
  1. Good Digestion Power.
  2. All normal physiological bio-chemical reactions.
  3. Happy, Balanced & Satisfied mental condition.

Our body is made of many countless things. Also it’s having many big & tiny organs. Also the nonvisible physiological processes plays most important role in body.

In all we can say that all body organs & their normal physiological processes make a harmony in the body. This harmony is called as Health.

Any disturbances in this harmony is termed as disease. These disturbances may be small or big.The symptoms may differ in every individual though the disease may be same & that’s the main key of person to person health. It’s also called as immunity of the person.

Also body has a property to correct the diseased condition by itself but it depends on the body i.e., Overall give & take relation ( Physiological Reactions ).

What mainly we can say; is that the physiology is the main backbone of person’s healthy or ill condition. It’s physiology which is mainly disturbs first & then it disturbs the anatomy of organ. There are very few diseases are in which firstly anatomy is disturbed & then physiology disturbs resulting diseases e.g., Congenital diseases, Trauma, Poisoning, etc.

We can say when the physiology disturbs at that time the weakest organ in the body disturbs most. So a specific organ is damaged & we say that he have the disease of the said organ.

Ayurveda has described very neatly about this in the above definition. Only Height & weight relation can’t  completely define your health. Also only absence of disease can’t completely  describe  healthiness.

So try to be fit & healthy,  instead of being happy that I don’t have any disease.

In Ayurveda literature they described the Prakruti concept. Every individual has combination of vata ,pitaa, kapha. The combination may in varying percentages but that combination in that body doesn’t  produces the diseases but any deviation in that combination produces the diseases in the body. So the parameters that are applied now-a-days for disease screening are not complete.

This is how the body is so complex. So in short what we have to see is that just follow the body’s demands in limited amount. & let the body (organs) do its work on their own.

We have to just help the organs to work; not to teach or force the organs to do the extra work of our wish.

Also the body is made up; so as to do most physical work but now-a-days we lightened the work with technology. So we are not doing much exertional physical work so as to maintain organ’s health. We have to do some regular exercises.
