Ayurveda (science of life)
Kaphaja (कफज) is a Sanskrit word referring to a classification of human constitution (prakṛti) where Kapha-doṣa has its dominance. The word is used throughout Ayurvedic (India medicine) literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. A skilled physician should monitor the constitution of a patient during treatment with medicines and prescribing his diet. Kapha represents the “water element” element of the human body.Source: Google Books: Essentials of Ayurveda
The person of Kaphaja constitution is handsome, grateful, patient, non-greedy, firm, stable, strong, tolerant, faithful and charitable.Source: Asian Agri-History: Paśu Āyurvēda (Veterinary Medicine) in Garuḍapurāṇa
Kaphaja (कफज) or Kaphajavraṇa refers to “wounds caused by the derangement in kapha”, according to Āyurveda sections in the Garuḍapurāṇa.—In Garuḍapurāṇa the vraṇa (ulcers/wounds) are classified broadly into two types based on the causative factors i.e.: (1) Āgantuja-vraṇa and (2) Doṣaja-vraṇa. They are sub classified based on the type of Doṣa, [e.g., Kaphajavraṇa—The ulcers / wounds caused due to the derangement in kapha. The main characteristic feature is kṣipra-pākī (suppuration speedily)] [...].
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
