We sometimes hear people attributing a person’s disease or ill-health to his or her kamma. The fact is ill-health may be brought about when one’s bodily system is out of balance or by external factors such adverse climate, environment or accidents. Kamma sometimes play a part, especially when evil and unwholesome acts have been committed. We see examples of these in the suttas. What are they? More importantly, what can we do to treat ourselves of diseases borne out of our kamma?
