In Ayurveda, the routine and habitual suppression of natural urges is regarded as a major cause for illness. Vata Dosha is responsible for the formation and execution of the natural urges; therefor suppression will cause aggravated Vata.

The natural urges serve autonomic needs of the body, when they are not allowed to manifest, stress is created. For example, suppression of urination will cause over time a growing feeling of discomfort, physical and mental restlessness and eventually nervousness and anxiety. Habitual suppression over years of any of the natural urges will gradually deplete the body causing malfunction and disease.

Modern lifestyle encourages the suppression of various natural urges; suppression of evacuating the bowls at work because of stressful work or hygiene issues, suppression of hunger and thirst, suppression of sleep due to work overload etc..
