Abstract

GARVISHA: CONCEPTUAL & CONTEMPORARY VIEW

Deepika Bhandari*

Abstract

“Ayurveda” is an ancient holistic medical system that considered as the upveda of Atharvaveda. Agadtantra is one of the branches of Ashtang Ayurveda. Agadatantra not only explains about Natural toxins (Sthavara and Jangama visha) but also gives equal importance to artificial toxins (Kritrimavisha) also. In Ayurveda the Garvisha is considered as one of the form of Kritrimvisha (Artifically prepared) which gets formed by combination of two or more than two poisonous or non-poisonous drugs and ultimately affects the whole body by vitiating all the dhatus in the body. It can go to such extent that it can alleviates the dhatus drastically which in turns could prove to be fatal. Since it takes some time for this type of poison to get metabolized it doesn‟t cause instantaneous death of a person. A Detailed explanation of this poison, its definition, sign and symptoms, mode of administration and treatment has been described in detail. This study also aims to establish that Garvisha has significant role in causing toxic symptoms due to its various uses in present society and Ayurveda offers effective management.

Keywords: Garvisha, Sthavarvisha, Jangamvisha, Ayurveda, Agadtantra, Kritrimavisha.
