Ayurvedic perspective of ITP

According to Ayurveda, the three energies form our body – Vata, Pitta and Kapha, when the imbalance occurs between any of them, the disease occurs. ITP is a Raktapittadisorder (Rakta – blood), which occurs due to increased pitta in our body. This aggravation of pitta dosha occurs due to the consumption of pitta provoking foods such as sour, salty and spicy foods. These  foods lead to an increase in Amlabhava, which forms Ama Rasa and vitiates the pitta
