Abstract

IMPORTANCE OF LANGHANA AS AVASTHIK CHIKITSA IN AMAVASTHA OF CERTAIN VYADHIS

Vd. Vinayak N. Joshi* and Vd. Mrudula V. Joshi

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is an ancient science of life, which has blessed us with its basic principles, prevention techniques and treatment of diseases. Ayurveda has two main purposes; first is to maintain the health of healthy people and another is to cure the diseased one. Along with the administration of medicine langhana is mentioned as important treatment by Granthakaras. Langhana creats laghu guna in the body. This therapy takes away heaviness of the body. It is a type of Apatarpana (treatment in which avoid of nourishing food and medicine is done). Langhana therapy is used in amavastha of vyadhis. Ama is undigested product of food in the form of doshas which creates trouble and diseases in body. It is of guru guna and difficult to treat (digest), so to cure ama langhana, ushna, deepana, pachana, teekshna dravyas (medicines) are used. When the jatharagni (digestive fire) gets cool (agnimaandya) then the condition of amavastha creates. Until the ama is not treated there is no use of giving various medicines for curing the diseases; rather than the given drug will also convert into ama and the disease will increase. Conclusion: For treating amavastha of vyadhi first line of treatment is langhana (which creates laghu guna that is opposite to guru guna of ama). In present era where heavy food and junk food is the main cause of diseases, it is very important to follow langhana therapy as a prime treatment.

Keywords: Langhana, ama, apatarpana, pachana, jatharagni, viruddhahara.
