The oldest system of medicine in India is Ayurveda that cure ailments in a natural way by natural things present in nature. According to Ayurvedic principles our body is balanced by three vital energies i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Imbalance of these energies leads to illness.

Due to overconsumption of dry and cold foods, fasting, skipping meals, more excitement etc. leads to vitiation of Vata dosha which leads to vitiation of rasa dhatu.

Later on vitiated Vata goes deeper and affects Meda, Majja dhatus to block the channels and results in stiffness, rigidity of muscles, and tight skin with tremors. Tremors is kampa and bio-humor that is air is Vata therefore disease named as kampvata.
