Ayurveda, the traditional Indian System of Medicine, deals with the theory of the three tridosha states (both physical and psychological): Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
Hypothalamic Digoxin, Hemispheric Chemical Dominance, and the Tridosha Theory.
Bacteria and viruses can contribute to the regulation of hemispheric dominance and tridoshas as exemplified by schizophrenia, a disorder of consciousness.
Hyperdigoxinemia is important in the regulation of hemispheric dominance and the tridoshas .
The Warburg phenotype can contribute to the hemispheric dominance and tridoshas by augmenting the bacterial shikimic acid pathway.
According to the Ayurvedic system of medicine, the body is composed of tridosha
or three humours, vata, translated into wind, corresponds to mind and nervous system, the pitta translated into fire or bile and is responsible for all metabolic transformations including digestion and assimilation of the food, while kapha is translated as water or mucus and it is responsible for the anabolic functions such as development of muscle and bone tissues.
