Ayurveda is a traditional and ancient form of medicine. It is a holistic approach to the health of people.

Balancing in these three Dosha helps in maintaining the health and imbalance between these Dosha causes various health problems.
According to Ayurveda Urticarial Vasculitis is caused by the aggravation of Vata and Kapha. The Aggravation Vata and Kapha occur when people come in contact with cold air.
