In Ayurveda, understanding a disease is based on 3 main functional patterns or doshas that are present in nature and also in our body: vata, pitta, and kapha. The doshas directly relate to the five great elements, pritvi (earth), ap (water), tejas (fire), vayu (air) and akasha (ether). They exist in every life form and within every material manifestation.
समदोष: समाग्निश्च समधातुमलक्रिय:|
Samadosha samaagnishcha samadhatu mala kriyaaha prasanna atmenindriya manaha swasthya ityabhideeyate.
An individual who maintains a balanced state in the physiological processes and structural parts of his body (dosha and dhatu), proper digestion (agni) and excretion (mala kriya), a blissful state of his soul (atma), an equilibrium in the activity of his senses (indriya) and a happy state of mind (manas), is called a swasthya or healthy person.

सुखसञ्ज्नकमारोग्यम्, विकारो दु:खमेव
Vikarodhatuvaishamayam, samyam prakrutiruchyate, sukhsangyakamarogyam, vikarodhukmeva cha.
Any disturbance in the equilibrium of dhatus (tridosha, body tissues and waste matters) is known as disease. The state of their equilibrium is health. Happiness indicates health and pain indicates disease.
