According to Ayurveda, learning is a result of the successive and complex interaction of Indriyas (cognitive and motor organs), Indriyartha (sense organs), Mana (psyche), Atma and Buddhi (intellect). Above all, the functioning of these factors is governed by Tridosha (vata, pitta and kapha) and Triguna (Sattva, Raja and Tama) in specific coordination and balance Any disturbance in these Tridosha and Triguna will cause disordered functioning of Indriya, Mana and Buddhi leading to impaired learning or reading disability. Ayurvedic drugs can help in the management of reading disability by making these Tridosha and Triguna in a well-balanced state and also by providing Medhya (intellect promoting) drugs to improve the learning ability of these children.
