As per Ayurveda the well-being of an individual depends upon the health of the seven dhatus or tissue layers – i.e – Rasa (lymph), Rakta (blood), Mamsa (muscle), Medha (fat), Asthi (bone), Majja (bone marrow) and Shukra (reproductive tissue)) that make up the human body.
Each layer helps in strengthening the next layer in line and ultimately together they help build the immunity or ojas.
Our immune system is termed as ‘Ojas’ in Sanskrit that implies radiance, inner vitality, vigour or life source. Present within the heart chakra, it is chiefly the life-juice or essence of the body that helps in protecting and sustaining us and determining our physical, emotional and mental well-being. Ayurvedic system of remedy depends upon the ‘bheej-bhumi theory’, i.e. seed and land, where our body is considered as the ‘fertile land’ and the microbes are considered as seeds. During this seasonal change, when the body has an excessive build-up of AMA doshas and lack in the essential ‘ojas’, due to various factors it ultimately leads to the spreading of diseases within the body.
The immune system protects the body from infection. A person with a weak immune system may be more prone to frequent infections.
