For each disease, the physician (Ayurvedic vaidyan) has to know what type of dosha is the patient's problem. Only then he can prescribe the correct treatment.

For almost all health issues, ayurveda has a treatment using various herbs sometimes as a single herb or other times mixed with other herbs.
