It is necessary to eliminate the disease causing aggravated doshas from the body, especially when they are severely exacerbated and are present in large quantity. This is essential and mandatory to cure the diseases caused by those doshas. But Ayurveda principles of treating diseases emphasize on not eliminating the unripe and immature doshas. If done, they may damage the body tissues and organs and also cause death in worst scenarios.
