Vyadhi (disease)is the opposite condition of health.According to Shabdakalpadrum "Vyadhi" means 'Pain'. When adding the 'Ikarant' in vyadh that means "conglomeration the pain". According to the tridosha Siddhanta of the Ayurveda, there are Vata ,Pitta and Kapha dosahs are responsible for the Prakriti formation, as an imbalance in doshas leads to the diseases, therefore knowledge of Prakriti of an individual is essential for the knowledge of vikriti.
