The equilibrium state of these Doshas is a state of Health in the Holistic manner i.e. physical, mental, spiritual wellbeing. Vyadhi or disease is the state in which body or mind are subjected to pain and misery. There may be a variety of causative factors of a disease but the actual intrinsic factors which get vitiated are three Doshas i.e. VATA, PITTA and KAPHA.
