Rashmi. K*, Swati S. Deshpande
The aims and objective of Ayurveda is of two fold i.e., Prevention of disease in healthy individual and cure of the disease in a diseased person. To fulfil the first aim, our Acharyas have described Dinacharya, Rutucharya. In Dosha chaya, Prakopaavastha, if the person consumes more Apathyakaraahara, Vihara, Doshas will go in Prasaraadiavast has and leads to Vyadhi. Ayurveda emphasized to practise these therapies to eliminate the vitiated Dosha in accordance to the seasonal variation like Vamana in Vasantharutu, Virechana in Sharadrutu, Basti in Pravrutrutu, as a prevention of disease and promotion of health. Person who follows this regimen in each season never suffers from severe disorder According to Induteeka, thus neglected, the vitiated Dosha get accumulated over the time to its maximum, and the channels of rasa are being obstructed by the vitiated Dosha (deposition of debries in the inner layers making the lumen narrowed), nourishment to the tissues is not possible. This causes the diseases like Sthoulya, Agnisada, Kusta, Meha etc, which are not amenable for treatment. 4 Maasa (Rutudvaya) for Sanchaya of Kaphadosha, if it is not early evacuated in Chaitramaasa it end up in Rutujaan rogas. Hence, while maintaining health itself one must undergo purifactory measures to prevent from occurrence of the diseases by seasonal factors. Hence this conceptual study is made to explain the effect of Vasantikavamana a preventive measure for Kaphaja rogas.Keywords: Dinacharya, Rutucharya, chaya, prakopa, Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Daarunibhotadosha, Avabadda Dosha, Rutujaanroga.
