In this apparent world none of us ever wants to be deluded by illness. And it is plain irony that as and when we lose our wellness, it is only in that very state of apathy and discomfort that we comprehend the merits of good health. And all of us would believe that even an ailment as plain as common cold is adequate to create distress virtually at all levels of our being. But how often have we have contemplated as to why we tend to fall lose our wellness?

Seven modes of disease

Ayurveda, which is in itself the complete science of living the life, has established seven basic reasons as to why we get ill.


Ailments like diabetes are believed to traverse through parental genes, which may cause an individual to suffer with the ailment more by far.


Some ailments like dwarfism are assumed to be concurred due to improper care of the pregnant mother and the child in her womb.

Self imposed factors

These are the most common aspects that influence commencing of a disease. This counts for most of the lifestyle related maladies like hypertension, obesity etc. Over or improper diet and nutrition intake is one of the prime contributors in this category of acquiring disease.

Psychological influence

Most of the mental ailments like depression, anxiety, antagonism et all find their roots in the mind.


Physical as well as mental trauma may result into making of bodily ailments like fractures, wounds; or mental anguish like grief, fear etc.

Seasonal factor

All the six seasons viz spring, summers, rainy season; autumn, early winters and extreme winters, all have definite influence on the health of an individual. And there are some discreet norms to be followed during the seasonal transitions. When these are averted, an ailment might erupt.

Natural mode

The ailments that result from natural aging come in this category.

Three universal means

Although Ayurveda has categorized the contributory factors of making of a disease in these seven modes, yet our ancient text has all the more authentically reasoned three universal grounds indispensable for development of a disease.

Discrepancy of the five senses

First is when there is more, less or improper correlation of the five senses with their respective subjects. For example, we take the example of the sense of hearing. In case, the sound that we hear is very loud like listening to very loud music or on the other hand it is rather inaudible like stressing the ears on someone’s whispering. In both these instances, in case these actions are prolonged over time, the sense of hearing is definitely going to be affected. Moreover, any sort of improper earshot like listening to thunder or intolerably rugged noise is another reason for development of hearing affliction. Similar would be the apathy of the other four senses of touch, taste, sight and smell.

Improper utility of tongue, body and mind

The second equally vital explanation is the immoral deployment of self in the terms of bodily physique, mental power and verbal influence. In easy words, the tongue, body and mind when put to inappropriate use, may result into laying grounds of the disease. In these entire three arenas, problem arises when either these are overworked, under worked or incorrectly worked.
For instance, in case you are uncontrollably talkative, or tend to talk extremely less or if you are always talking while eating (when you should not be doing the same); in all the three cases you are inviting a malady by wrong doing with your tongue.
Similarly, when you are overly exerting yourself, or simply remain sedentary or tend to wrong your body by forcibly suppressing natural urges like thirst or urination; in all these cases you are unknowingly laying foundation of a disease.
Now let us cite the issues that hint of improper handling of your mind. In case you remain anxious and judgmental all the while, or if you are not using your brain powers at all, or tend to let your mind be empowered by thoughts of fear, grief, and anger more often. In all three cases, your mental stability is going to be affected.

Seasonal disparity

The third element of universal inequity that signifies loss of wellness is the seasonal disparity. This comes to us as natural stigma when there is either excess or dearth of seasonal favours. Or there may be erroneous overture of the season. For example, let us understand the pretext of losing of health due to the rainy season. This would be in case, either it rains too heavily throughout the spell, or the rainfall is rather inadequate. Or in another case, disease would emerge when although there should be moderate showers in the rainy season, but it simply does not rain therein and on the contrary, it downpours in some other season.

The immoral conduct

Ayurveda, being the holistic discipline of livelihood incorporates the right means that need to be followed religiously, so as to stay clear of disease in not only physical and psychological, but also spiritual grounds. If the teachings in the ancient text are followed per se, the chances of losing the assets of natural health would be negligible. Although a lot has been advocated as to be pursued, there are also some immoral behavioral aspects that we need to be cautioned about. According to Ayurveda Gurus, we need to try and avoid ten basic acts which only lead to distress in terms of losing wellness.

1. Brutal and violent conduct.
2. stealing
3. unacceptable sexual behaviour
4. anger
5. fault finding
6. telling lies
7. wrong thoughts
8. words of indifference
9. craving for other’s riches
10. inability of discrimination between right and wrong
