What is immunity?
Immunity is our defense mechanism. Our immunity protects us from the viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms. Our immunity system consists of certain cells such as Leucocytes (white blood cells), lymphocytes, T-cells, B-cells etc. in case of infection or toxicity, our immunity system attacks the infectious or toxic agents and destroys it. Sometimes our immunity behaves strangely and destroys our own body cells. This condition is termed as Autoimmunity.
Immunity in Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, immunity is termed as “Vyadhikshamatva” (resistance). It is also co-related with our Ojas or Bala. In Ayurveda, three types of Bala are mentioned.
- Sahaja Bala (Natural Immunity)
- Kaalaja Bala
- Yuktikrita Bala (Acquired Immunity)
Sahaja Bala is one’s natural immunity. Everyone carries one’s own inherent immunity which is derived from the parents. Sahaja bala is stagnant. It cannot be increased or decreased
Kalaja Bala is strength according to seasons and age. As a child grows, his/her immunity increases. In the old age, immunity decreases. In the mixed seasons like vasanta ritu, immunity tends to decrease.
Yuktikrita Bala is acquired immunity. This immunity can be increased through various diet, lifestyle and medicines. There are many immunity boosters which increases the immunity
