Ayurvedic Scholars have universally accepted that the dhaatus (nutrients) are nourished one after another through dhatupaka and aahara rasa provides nourishment to all the dhatus. But there are different doctrines about the mode of nourishment of different Dhatus of the body. All these doctrines are explained by the commentators like Chakrapanidalhana and Arundutta etc. for the same without giving the details there upon. These DhaatuparinamaNyayas are 1. KsheeraDadhinyaya. 2. Kedarakulyaanyaya. 3. Khalekapotanyaya. 4. EkakalaDhatuposhanasiddhantha. 5. Samanvyasiddhantha. The last doctrine was propounded by modern physiologists.
