Principles of Ayurvedic Treatment :
'Doshas', 'Vayu', 'Pitta' and 'Kapha' are spread over all over the body. They regulate functions of every tissue cell and are present in each of them. When the sperm and ovum unite in the uterus of the mother to form a Zygote, the 'Doshas' present in them and outside them in the uterus causes certain characteristic features which in Ayurvedic parlance are known as 'Prakriti'.

If all the 'Doshas' are in the state of equilibrium, it gives rise it give rise to a healthy foetus and if all the 'Doshas' are very much is disturbed state then it becomes a week and unhealthy foetus.
