|+||[[Satmya]] = ‘tolerence’ |
|+||[[Asatmya]] = ‘intolerence’ or ‘hypersensitivity’|
|+||This refers to [[wp>allergies]]. Natural [[wp>immunity]] is tolerance to [[wp>environmental stress]], but the body can become hypersensitive due to chronic [[ama]] deep in the connective tissue or [[dhatus]] producing [[wp>antibodies]]. These antibodies go unused and linger in [[rasa dhatu]] and [[rakta dhatu]] waiting for any little cause to attack. When that small cause comes, they jump to attention and the [[wp>histamine]] response ([[wp>cytotoxic]] pittogenic ama) is out of proportion to the cause. |
