When there is a combination of these two with the vata, the stage is set for vata to overflow into the circulation. This overflow causes the vyana vayu disturbed within the rasa dhatu. Dryness of the mucous membrane is the sign of an excess of vata in the circulation. Vata may relocate to any dhatu that are weak and if there is a pre weakness in the tissue of the brain, this becomes a site of relocation, and thus a condition of Vata in the majhja dhatu resides damaging the brain and the tissues of the brain. “According to Ayurveda, Parkinson’s Disease develops due to the accumulation of Vata Dosha in the nerves in the brain” Aggravated Vata Dosha can dry up the nerve with the adverse effect.
