Causes of Dust Mite Allergy – According to Ayurveda
The low immunity is considered as the cause of dust mite allergy. The low immunity can be due to weak digestive fire, inhalation of smoke and dust, lack of proper sleep in the night, exposure to cold air, suppression of natural urges etc. In Ayurveda, dust mite allergy has been explained in terms of Pratishaya. Pratishaya is caused due to the vitiation of Vata dosha which has the similar symptoms of dust allergy.
The presence of accumulated toxins in the body is the main cause of low immunity described in Ayurveda. The toxins accumulate due to poor digestion which in turn causes the imbalance of various doshas in the body.
