Shata Kriya Kala is the orderly way to deal with evaluating illness movement in Ayurveda. There are six phases in this interaction by which we can follow the development of the doshas and their appearance in the body.
These 6 stages are an essential method to analyze the way of an infection or awkwardness in the body. Ayurveda, the old comprehensive mending philosophy, underscores early intercession, avoidance, and expulsion of the issue. Separating awkwardness into 6 phases helps in accomplishing each of the 3. This is a significant piece of Ayurvedic Nidana, to show up at the chain of causation. 6 stages are:
This is the initial step wherein the dosha gets aggregated in its own sthana or unique spot in the body. For eg: Vata may aggregate in its own sthana i.e., lower mid-region/digestive organs.
This is the stage where doshas begin collecting in their “homes”. Vata amasses in the colon, pitta in the small digestive system, and Kapha in the stomach. On the off chance that the individual focuses on the body, he/she will perceive the signs given by the body. They will feel an appreciation for the contrary characteristics of the dosha that has expanded.
In the main phase of the cycle, Sanchaya, the doshas are in their individual sthana and starting to increment. This gentle awkwardness can be overseen by applying the inverse gunas and placating the expanding doshas. In any case, if the dosha isn’t conciliated and keeps on expanding in the sthana, then, at that point they start to exasperate the destinations further. In the phase of incitement
In the second step, the dosha begins to disturb in a similar spot.
Eg: the vata in the lower midsection bothers and makes lopsidedness in the first spot, i.e, mid-region and digestion tracts.
In the event that the doshas are not contained at their destinations, they get irritated and begin to flood from their locales.
Prakopa, the individual may in any case have the option to apply sound judgment measures to conciliate the awkwardness (lessening hot food varieties when feeling hot, diminishing Kapha-prompting food varieties when feeling substantial, and so on) Should these actions not be taken, or lacking, the irregularity moves to the third stage.
In the phase of incitement, Prakopa, the individual may in any case have the option to apply good judgment measures to appease the lopsidedness (decreasing hot food sources when feeling hot, diminishing Kapha-prompting food varieties when feeling substantial, and so forth) Should these actions not be taken, or deficient, the awkwardness moves to the third stage, Prasara.
This is the SPREAD of the problem. Here the dosha begins to spread all through the body in the wake of spilling over from its sthana or area. For eg: the above vata lopsidedness would now be able to move into any piece of the body through different srotas that start from amashaya (stomach).
When the flood of doshas occurs, they begin spreading all through the body by means of various channels.
Here the doshas start to spread past their sthana. This is a significant stage since it is here that we start to see “pre-manifestations” of illness (Purva rupa). The doshas start to room the body looking for a powerless region. Cravings for tastes of the imbalanced doshas regularly expansion in this phase of the sickness. Vata is associated with this stage as it conveys the doshas. Whenever they have moved out of their sthana, they must be made do with designated treatments to take the doshas back to the GI tract.
(Testimony/Localisation) – The spread dosha then attempts to discover shaky areas or khavaigunyas (flimsy points) to store. For eg: vata can hold up itself in conceptive frameworks
Once the doshas begin moving away from their locales, they begin to search for a spot to store. It can happen at an organ, marma, joint, dhatu, and so forth At this stage, foreboding indications show up.
Here the infection has tracked down a frail region in the dhatu, khavaigunya, to store itself. When this occurs, the culpable dosha starts to attempt to apply its impact upon the dhatu. The dosha will stop itself into the asthayi dhatu. On the off chance that the dhatu agni is solid it will keep the dosha’s impact under control. In the event that it’s anything but, the dosha will enter the sthayi dhatu. This is dhatu gata dosha, the illness moving into the tissue. It is at this stage that cell knowledge is influenced. Signs and side effects start to show up however can in any case be overseen and placated before the sickness continues ahead to the following stage, Vyakti.
When the sickness advances to this stage, signs, and indications begin to show up.
In this phase of indication, the recently collected dosha lopsidedness will bring about the appearance of different side effects. For eg: vata in conceptive frameworks can show in amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, and so on
In the fifth phase of sickness, appearance, the illness can be plainly seen. Now, the impact of the dosha (or doshas) has antagonistically affected the dhatus, srotamsi, and organs. The capacity has additionally been influenced.
At this stage, the infection gets ongoing and entanglements may create and is extremely hard to treat.
This is the phase of separation and change. The showed stage can additionally take any course conceivable and make different complexities or ongoing issues in the body. For eg: the above vata appearance can additionally bring about blisters, richness issues, and different indications spread all through the body.
In the event that the sickness isn’t tended to right now, the last stage, Bheda, is reached. This is known as separation. The doshas have entered the dhatu and influenced work, while additionally influencing the encompassing tissue. This is the most troublesome stage to treat as the sickness has made such a lot of subjective change.
