Agni is important factor in our body. Agni is said to be the mool (base) of life. If the Agni of a person is vitiated, the whole metabolism in his body would be disturbed; resulting in ill health and disease. Agnimandya is the root cause in production of ama, ajirna, vitiation of dosha and thus related disease.
In the same way person is assured of good health, if one can take care to maintain the balance among the bio regulating factors of the body i.e. Vata, pitta and kapha.
