Concept of the Ama in Ayurveda

Ama is a unique concept in Ayurveda (for the modern chemistry has no correlate). Is an important factor for a cause of disease and illness change process.

Role of Ama

Ama comes from not properly digested toxic particles that obstruct the channels in the body. Some of these channels are physical and include intestinal, lymphatic system,arteries and veins, capillaries and genito urinary system. Others are non-physical channels called NADIS through the energy flow. AMA builds toxicity, where it causes a weakness in the body and this disease.

Causes of the production of ‘Ama’

Fire Agnimandya-low digestive

Normal activity of the digestive fire necessarily complete and proper digestion of food. But the digestive fire is low food is not properly digested and dangerous material.Therefore absorption is slow and gets stuck in the gut longer. Due to this reservation of ownership when fermented or still. This toxic product continue to be absorbed due to his incomplete digestion in the intestine and is the cause of all diseases.

Dhatu-Agnimandya low heat fabric

Ama AyurvedaFabric fire plays an important role in the process of the formation of tissue nutrient substances (in particular, dhatu). Therefore, if the power of the fire by a particular tissue is  reduced, or the liver or in a certain channel, the education or the use of the tissue is incomplete and love arises. With substances loves hot SAMA such fabrics woven with the nanny. This kind of pathology is seen in various diseases. Diabetes are fat and muscle tissue “Tissue-SAMA”, due to the low heat tissue by fat and muscle tissue. Therefore the normal functional activities are disabled these tissues. Obesity a similar kind of fatty tissue is tissue of adipose tissue due to low heat. A peculiar thing observed in these conditions, that although there is a fire underneath the fabric, there is no digestive fire is low linked; on the contrary, digestive fire is sharper. All other types of low heat tissue it burns digestive low connected.

Mala Sanchaya accumulation of toxins

Agni is the energy, which are responsible for the processing of food in the body tissues.In the first phase produces nutritious substance that is converted into the tissue, in the second phase of digestion, which is called secondary or digestion of the tissue. Here occurs the action of fire in nutritious substances, fabrics, food and various materials are manufactured. This is the anabolic activity of the tissue. The substances that are produced by this method is used to release energy for each activity of the body. During this process the tissue, which are digested materials disintegrated and used for the liberation of heat and electricity generation by the fire of the tissue. This is the catabolic process. During this activity the disintegration of certain tissues, waste products are minutes. They are called subtle residue or Kleda. Until this is important to a certain limit the existence of the body and the excess from the body excreted. If this excretion is insufficient due to excessive production or their faulty elimination, it gets in the body, accumulated, causing the formation of toxic material ama.

Dosha Sammurcchana interaction or merger between vitiated doshas

Ama In AyurvedaEach dosha has certain qualities, against the qualities of the other doshas are for example, the dry and dark qualities of vata are antagonistic to the qualities of kapha oily and heavy.
