Ayurvedic terminology of common diseases, symptoms, indication

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of medicine practised since the classical time. Sanskrit, which is accepted as the mother of all languages, was the only language used in India at that time. All the Ayurvedic classical texts were written in Sanskrit (mostly in shloka form) by great Indian saints (Acharya & maharishi). Since then, almost all the Ayurvedic terminology, are still in its original Sanskrit form. For the peoples around the world, it is very difficult to understand what did these Ayurvedic terminology mean.

This article may act as a reference for all of them. I have compiled most of the Ayurvedic terms and their English translation in this article below.
