What Ayurveda Says About Cervical Spondylosis?

Three physical energies, Vata, Pitta and Kapha decide individual's body nature and accordingly diet and life style is recommended. As everyone is different genetically, recommendations also varies person to person and also it depends upon the each season of the year.
According to Ayurveda, cervical spondylosis is due to vitiation of Vata dosha. Improper dietary and life style habits cause vitiation of Vata and production of Ama or toxic material in body.
