General debility or “Durbalya” means the lack of strength in a person. In Ayurveda, strength is known as “Balam”. Balam can be loosely described as “power of resistance.” The sage Charaka has used the terms “Vyadhi” and “Avyadhi kshamatwa” in this reference. Those who are capable of resisting diseases are called “Vyadhi Kshamatwa.” Those who cannot fight against diseases and are easily affected by them are called “Vayadhi Akham,” which is the sure sign of general debility or general weakness and lack of strength. Broadly, debility is also known by other names like infirmity, frailty, feebleness and frailness.
Weakness is a very common symptom. The feeling of weakness may be subjective (the person feels weak but has no measurable loss of strength) or concrete measurable loss of strength). You may be diagnosed with general debility or weakness if you are unable to perform regular day to day functions.
Lack of adequate nutrition and impaired electrolyte balance in the body is the root cause of debility. Moreover, working too hard or overexerting oneself, mental stress, depression and lack of adequate sleep, overuse of certain medications, liver, renal and thyroid disorders, tuberculosis, diabetes, cancers and fevers may also be the other causes of debility.
To overcome debility naturally we must take a balanced diet with good nutrition. Therefore, eat sensibly, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. This type of diet should be high in the following immune strengthening nutrients like beta carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folic acid, zinc and selenium. Further, we have to change our life style and do regular physical exercise.
