Abstract


Ama is the root factor in the pathogenesis of several diseases. Formation of Ama is the consequences of Mandagni. It can be formed at the Jatharagni , Dhatwagni  and Bhutagni level. The term Ama literally means mal-digested, unprocessed and fermented substance in the body. Ama can be compared with auto antigen, toxic substances, free radical, metabolic wastes products. As it works as an auto-antigen thus antigen- antibody complexes  formed, in response  initiates the inflammatory process and a chain of autoimmune diseases can be started. Ama is supposed as  sarva dosha prakopna because once it is formed , amalgamates  with  doshas dushyas & malas. The impact of Ama is very hazardous to the body.
