Doshas are the source for homeostasis when they are normal and produce disease during their disequilibrium state. Dosha in a healthy person performs certain functions based on its Pramana (amount), Guna (quality), and Karmas (function), and any change in any of these leads to illness development. Because of their properties, Visha Dravyas are classified as Tridoshaprakopaka, Laghu, Ruksha, Aashu, Vishad, Vyavayi Teekshna, Vikasi, Sukshma, Ushna, Anirneshaya are the properties or Gunas.
