Anorexia in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, Anorexia is known as Aruchi. It is caused by the aggravation of all the three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha) of the body. Ayurveda describes these doshas as the forces or energies of our body. There are 5 different types of Aruchi, according to Ayurveda.

Vataja Aruchi: This type of Aruchi is caused by the vitiation of Vata dosha and is characterized by astringent taste in the mouth.

Paittik Aruchi: This type of Aruchi is caused by the vitiation of Pitta dosha and is characterized by a bitter taste in the mouth.

Kaphaja Aruchi: It is caused by the vitiation of Kapha dosha and is characterized by total loss of appetite and sweet taste in the mouth.
