Two major causes of disease in Ayurveda are improper diet and lifestyle that a person follows consciously or unconsciously. Following a diet or lifestyle that is against the season or Prakriti (nature) of a person, creates an imbalance in the body’s energies, thus contaminating the tissues of the body to produce a skin disease.
In Ayurvedic terms, although skin diseases are caused by imbalances in the three doshas, the main suspect is the Pitta dosha or the fire element. Therefore, all those foods or activities that increase the fire element in the body must be eliminated.
