Importance of a strong immune system

What a challenging time it has been, with our immune system facing the greatest challenge of all. If the virus has shown us anything it is our vulnerability to unknown pathogens.

As viruses and other environmental pathogens tend to live amongst us, now more than ever we have realized the importance of having a strong immune system, if not for prevention than to avoid long term effects

Immunity according to Ayurveda

The Ayurvedic view of immunity is based on the concept of inherited reserve and acquired reserve. In the Ayurvedic Classics, it is literally known as ‘vyadhi-kshmatva’ or ‘self-avoidance of disease’.

Vyadhi-kshmatva is composed of two words – Vyadhi + Kshamatva where Vyadhi means ‘Disease’ or ‘Illness’ and Kshamatva means ‘to resist’.

Ayurveda defines 3 types of immunity:

Sehaja vyadhi-kshmatva– That which we inherit by birth and is genetic.

Vyadhija vyadhi-kshmatva– That which develops when an antigen pervades our body. Our immune system generates specific antibodies against that specific antigen to protect our body.

Yuktikrit Vyadhi-kshmatvaThat which is acquired through a healthy diet, lifestyle, and general well-being.
