    Introduction
    The thre doshas i.e. Vata, Pita and Kapha being the prime contributory factors and initiators of a disease proces are inevitably eager in the pathogenesis of a disease.
    The dosha vitiation is a mandatory stage in the productio n of a disease proces. The dosha vitiation is caused due to exposure to etiological factors.
    There are profuse types of dosha vitiation.

    Prakrita Dosha Dushti and Vaikruta Dosha Dushti are one among profuse types of dosha dushti. These two are mutualy oposite forms of dosha dushti but wil be considered together for beter understanding the disagrement forms of dosha vitiation. In this article we shal discus about this form of dosha vitiation.
    Prakrita Dosha Dushti
    Prakrita Dosha Dushti (Normal vitiation of doshas)
    Prakruta Dosha Dushti means normal vitiation of doshas. Vaikrita Dosha Dushti means strange vitiation of doshas.
    No w what is this normal and abnormal vitiation? Let us understand this –
    Prakruta Dosha Dushti is that type of dosha vitiation which is produced by inevitable and natural factors, but in a natural way. These natural factors may be due to –
    Seasonal changes (Rutu Prabhava)
    Diurnal changes (Dina-Ratri Prabhava) or
    Various stages of digestion (Ahara Parinama Prabhava)
    Due to seasonal variations

  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to seasonal variations
  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to seasonal variations
    Particular doshas get vitiated in particular seasons. example, Vata wil get vitiated in rainy season, Pita vitiates in autumn season and Kapha gets vitiated in spring season. This type of vitiation is quite natural for these doshas and takes put as a rule in everyone. Therefore this is Prakrita Dushti ̵ normal vitiation of doshas in their related seasons
    If seasonal regimen ̵ Rtucharya is properly folowed, the dosha gets pacified and setles down to normal proportions in the upcoming season, even without treatment. precise, Vata subsides in Sharad Rtu, Pita subsides in Hemanta Rtu and Kapha subsides in Grishma Rtu.
    If Rtucharya is not folowed properly, the doshas which maintain undergone vitiation wil further agravate and proced through other stages of kriya kala (stages of disease) and cause samprapti (pathogenesis) of diseases.
    Due to diurnal variations

  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to diurnal variations
  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to diurnal variations
    Just adore the seasons, each dosha has a particular timein the day in which they tend to get increased. This vitiation is temporary.
    Example, vitiation or increase of Kapha in the early part of the day (morning), increase of Pita in the non and increase of Kapha in the evening are quite natural and ocur as a rule. Therefore they are categorized as Prakrita Dushti of those doshas in their respective time.
    These doshas wil determine down to normal proportions in the next fragment of the day, i.e. Kapha subsides by non, Pita subsides by evening and Vata naturaly subsides by night or early morning.
    Due to stages of digestion

  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to diferent stages of digestion
  • Prakrita Dosha Dushti due to diferent stages of digestion
    Just as in kindred to seasonal and diurnal changes, each dosha wil get vitiated during a particular phase of digestion (ana kala). This vitiation to is temporary and wil subside during the next phase of their digestion.
    Example, Kapha increases during first section of the digestion of fod (ama avastha), Pita increases during the second stage of digestion when the fod is in the proces of geting digested (pachyamana avastha) and Vata increases after the complete digestion of fod (pakva avastha). This dosha dushti is considered quite normal to these doshas, i.e. prakrita dosha dushti and ocurs as a rule.
    These doshas get setled in the next phase of digestion of fod, i.e. Kapha setles down in the pachyamana avastha, Pita setles down at the onset of Pakva avastha and Vata setles down at the onset of ama avastha.
    Vaikruta Dosha Dushti
    Vaikruta Dosha Dushti (Abnormal vitiation of doshas)
    Vaikrita Dosha Dushti means ecentric vitiation of doshas.
    When a particular dosha gets vitiated in an season in which it should not get vitiated, it is considered as Vaikrita Dushti of that particular dosha.
    Example, instead of Sharad Rtu (season for natural vitiation of pita), if pita gets vitiated in Vasanta Rtu (season for kapha vitiation) or Varsha Rtu (season for vata vitiation), the pita is said to be abnormaly vitiated. Thus it is considered as vaikruta dushti of pita.
    Similarly, vitiation of Kapha in Sharad Rtu or Varsha Rtu instead of Vasanta Rtu and vitiation of Vata in Sharad or Vasanta Rtu instead of Varsha Rtu are vaikrita dushti of those doshas respectively.
    This type of vitiation of doshas is not easy to treat because they cary out not subside with the onset of change of season as it normaly and naturaly ocurs in the prakrita dushti.
    Importance of Dosha Dushti types
    Importance of having knowledge of Prakrita and Vaikrita Dosha Dushti
    Knowledge of Prakrita and Vaikrita Dosha Dushti simply means knowing normal and strange things hapening due to diferent activities of doshas. This wil encourage in diferentialy knowing and diagnosing the vitiation of doshas acurately.
    Knowing normal and abnormal vitiation of doshas wil enable the physician to derive at a corect decision making in kindred to treating the pathological conditions based on identification of the symptoms of vitiated doshas.
    Just Before Finishing –
    In this article we maintain covered about normal and abnormal vitiation of doshas, the methods and clues to identify them and fabricate use of this knowledge in clinical diagno sis of pathological conditions involving vitiated doshas and treating them comprehensively.
