Role of agni and Ama in the development of pratishyay
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rakesh Kumar Singh, Dr. Shipra and Dr. Ved Prakash Singh
Ama refers to raw, unripe, unprocessed or improperly digested condition of food substances develop due to mandagni (hypo functioning of Agni). Agni is responsible for longevity, strength and complexion. Acharya Vagbhatta described Ama concept in detail. It is very much necessary to understand Ama for the purpose of diagnosis of disease and treatment of disease. Ama is an antigen and induces immunological reaction inside the body in a susceptible individual. Excessively vitiated doshas (autoimmune) favors the causation of Ama to a greater extent. Abnormal agni is responsible for genesis of almost all diseases. Especially Mandagni is a causative factor for the production of Ama, which in turn favors development of Pratishyay.
