Ayurvedic Medicine

Basics

The term ama in ordinary parlance means unripe, uncooked, and indigestible. Food products that are incompletely digested and cannot be absorbed, remain in the gastro-intestinal tract and are passed through stools or through vomiting. The food, which is partially digested and cannot be absorbed, but cannot be assimilated by the tissues, is termed as ama. 

In the context of medicine, however, this term refers to events that  follow and factors which arise as a consequence of the impaired functioning of kayagni body heat. The factors that appear to enter the picture of ama vikaras are related to what is today known as food poisoning. All internal diseases begin with ama's presence in the body and all diseases caused by the external factors eventually produce ama.

Symptoms of Ama

Causes for origin of Ama

  • decreased secretion of digestive juices
  • decreased heat of tissue
  • due to effects of vital catalyst
  • toxins produced by worms
