Dr. Veena Ram Pisal* and Dr. Vandana D. Bhusari

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is an ancient science of life, i.e. the word “Ayurveda” itself says “Ayusho vedaha” that means veda of life is Ayurveda. This life science is very ancient estimated about 5000 years ago. Ayurveda blessed us with their 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 also told by Granthakaras. Langhana leads to laghu guna; 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. Here 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 fast food and junk food is the main cause of diseases, it is very important to follow langhana therapy as a treatment.
