Srotas

Srotas are an important concept in Ayurveda, referring to the channels in the body responsible for the transport of fluids or other substances. The srotas are similar to the blood vessels, lymphatic system, and other channels in the body, and they each play a vital role in maintaining balance and health.

There are several types of srotas in Ayurveda, including:

  1. Annasrotas – responsible for the transport of food and nutrients
  2. Pranasrotas – responsible for the transport of air and oxygen
  3. Rasasrotas – responsible for the transport of fluids and nutrients absorbed by the stomach
  4. Rakhtasrotas – responsible for the transport of blood and waste materials
  5. Mamsasrotas – responsible for the transport of muscle tissue and nourishment
  6. Asthisrotas – responsible for the transport of bone tissue and nourishment
  7. Majjasrotas – responsible for the transport of the bone marrow and nervous system functions
  8. Shukrasrotas – responsible for the transport of reproductive fluids

Ayurvedic practitioners believe that the srotas need to be kept clean and functioning properly in order to maintain good health. When there is a blockage or disruption in any of the srotas, it can lead to physical and mental health problems. Practitioners use various therapies such as herbs, oils, and massages to help clear the srotas and restore balance in the body.
