Diagnosis in Ayurveda is not always in terms of the name of the disease but in terms of the nature of phenomenon. This phenomenon is described in terms of Samprapti of the disease in each patient, comprising Dosha, Dushya and Adhishtana compoments. The prime factor in the pathogenesis of the disease are Dosha and Dushya. Shat kriya kala refres to the stage of development of a pathological process in which a physician can intervene by the most accurate treatment modality and medicine, thereby halting the progression of the disease process. By intricate understanding of the process of shat kriyakala, The disease process could be arrested, and further complications can be avoided. When the vital energies of the human body are imbalanced with the physical makeup for a long time, there is origin and spread of the disease. According to the philosophy of the Ayurvedic system of medicine, factors resulting imbalance of the vital energy or the three biological humours, normally results in the accumulation of toxic or products, known as Ama in Ayurvedic system of medicine. Along with the time factor, the Ama moves to parts of the human body where genetic weakness exist. Once Ama accumulates in that part, it can described as origin of the disease. Kriyakala is one of Ayurveda’s most viable compoments of health preservation, preventation, disease evolution, and management. It can be categorized in terms of prakrita and vaikrita. The prakrita one is related to a normal circadian variation of doshas in relation to age, day, night,season etc. and vaikrita is related to the process of genesis of disease and to adopt appropriate remedial measures. Again vakrita kala is divided into six stages, known as shatkriyakala for the gensis of disease. This concept is explored by Acharya Sushruta in the context of the inflammatory process in open wounds (Vrana).
