Kaya Chikitsa in Ayurveda

Here, the meaning of Kaya is Agni, that is the digestive fire and the treatment based on this Agni is called as Kayachikitsa. (Chikitsa = Treatment). This is really the general treatment and it encompasses all other branches too. Basically Agni is responsible for conversion of food into the body elements.

Diseases emerge due to malfunctioning of the Agni and hence if the Agni is set right again, then the patients get cured. Hence the whole treatment in Ayurveda is based on the concept of Agni. The texts give elaborate description about various diseases such as jwara (Fever), pandu (Anemia), Atisara (Diarrhea) etc. The whole general medicine has been covered in this particular branch.
