Abstract

A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF EFFECTS OF KALA-BHOJANA IN VISHAMASHANA-JANIT VYADHI

*Vd. Priyanka G. Kengale, Vd. Sarvesh Sharma, Vd. Milind Rampurkar, Vd. Narayan Sabu

ABSTRACT

Vishamashana is one of the methods in unhealthy dietary habits mentioned in our samhitas. It means taking meals Aprapta-kale (before) or Atita-kale (after) the actual time of hunger. According to Ayurveda, one should have meal only after jirna kale i.e complete digestion of the previous food. Ingestion of food without proper hunger & untimely meals always leads to improper digestion following Agnidushti causing many lifestyle disorders. Lifestyle disorders are defined as diseases linked with the way people live their life. This is commonly caused by unhealthy dietary habits, lack of physical activity, alcohol, drugs, smoking etc. In a study done to determine prevalence of unhealthy lifestyle patterns among overweight & obese adults, it is seen that unhealthy lifestyle patterns in diet, exercise & coping were highly prevalent among the population. Vishamashana being one of the reasons for agnidushti is an ultimate cause of such lifestyle disorders. To prevent vitiation of agni, one should follow the food etiquettes which are explained in samhitas. Kala-bhojana is one of the important ahara etiquettes in samhita which can counteract the effects of vishamashana. Having our meals at actual time of hunger can help in proper digestion of food & avoiding agnidushti. So, the topic was selected to study kala-bhojana as preventive and clinically applicable siddhanta in case of vishamashana-janit vyadhi.

Keywords: Vishamashana, kalabhojana, kala.
