“According to Ayurveda, pain occurs due to an imbalance or disturbance in the body’s doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), which are the fundamental energies or principles governing physiological functions. Pain is considered a symptom of underlying imbalances and can manifest in various ways depending on the nature of the imbalance and the affected tissues or organs,” says Dr Dimple Jangda, Ayurveda & Gut Health Coach in her recent Instagram post.
