Immunity: The Strength to Fight Diseases
-Dr. Vikrant Joshi
According to Ayurveda, immunity is that the strength of the body which resists the harmful effects of diseases and destroys the pathogens. Our body produces antibodies to fight harmful external infection which protects the body by destroying poisonous microorganisms.
According to modern science, the presence of white blood corpuscles in our blood destroys the pathogens that have invaded the system. This process is called phagocytosis which is the main mechanism of immunity to keep away the diseases from the body.
Human beings should take a balanced nutritious food and should try to live in an unpolluted environment and breathe pure air so that the digestive system stays healthy and white blood corpuscles and other cells function properly, ultimately resulting in sound health of the body that is free of illness or any kind of disease.
The weakening of the immunity of the body causes a number of diseases. Following are some of the diseases related to the weak immune systems: –
- Severe Combined Immunodeficiency
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Eczema and Allergy
- Cancer of Immune System
According to the Ayurvedic Scriptures, the balanced condition of a cough is called ‘Oja’or strength and the imbalanced condition is known as ‘Mal’ or Disease. In this balanced condition, this cough gives the stability and immunity to the body.
