These are the elements that equip nourishment, growth, and support to the human body both physically and mentally. Rasa-Rakta-Mamsa-Meda-Asthi-Majja-Shukra is the seven dhatus of the human body. These sapta dhatus are linked with the tissues in the body which are coalesced to the Plasma-Blood-Muscles-Fat-Bone-Bone Marrow-Reproductive fluid respectively.
According to Ayurveda, this 7 dhatus are interlinked and attrition of anyone can damage the succeeding dhatus as well. If rasa dhatu erodes, it can affect the functioning of all the other 6 dhatus and hence the devastation of the equilibrium and balance of the body will be the outcome. Hence factors like dosha, mala, etc that can aggravate and influence the dhatus should be pacified instantly with prevention and treatment.
