Abstract

VIRUDDHA AHARA AND MANOVIKARA – A REVIEW ARTICLE

Vd. Pooja H. Mishra* and Vd. Siddharth D. Gaikwad

Abstract

Ayurveda emphasizes mainly on the role of Ahara and believes that the healthy nutrition nourishes the mind, the body, and the soul. Mind is directly influenced by the quality, the preparation, the appearance, the aroma and the freshness of the food. Wholesome diet is a main cause for the growth and development of the body and the mind. When a person indulges in unwholesome diet, he/she becomes a victim of various diseases like Unmada (insanity), Mada (narcosis) etc. The nutrition plays a central role in the Ayurvedic lifestyle. Acharya Charak also stated that the Ahara is a life of an individual, when it is taken with Yukti (proper planning). The Ahara which is taken without Yukti i.e. improper quantity disturbs the balance among the body elements. It is called Viruddha Ahara. In this post-covid, post-pandemic era, we see that people forgot to follow proper dietary habits and the instructions due to which various disorders are occurring. The increased amount of the consumption of the so-called “junk food” is causing side effects on the body as well as on themind. Our mind plays a very important role in eating and the digestion of the food. The present article narrates the modern perspective on the Viruddha Aharaviz. Samskara-viruddha, Veerya-viruddha, Samyogaviruddha Ahara and how it isproving to beone of the causative factors of Manovikara (psychological disorders/diseases).

Keywords: Viruddha Ahara, Yukti, Manovikara, incompatibility.
