Symptoms of Apanavayuvaigunya in Persons undertaking Atiyana | Chapter 9 | Current Aspects in Pharmaceutical Research and Development Vol.9

Ayurveda is a science of life that explains the knowledge of many recommendations to follow in order to live a healthy lifestyle. With the increase of travel and occupation facilities, man has to make long excursions using various modes such as train, road, water, and so on. The majority of the scenarios mentioned have been linked to Apanavayu’s vaigunya (condition of changed functioning). Apanavayuvaigunya manifests itself in a variety of ways, from moderate constipation to serious mental disorders. Atiyana is one of the most frequent reasons cited as a cause of Apanavaigunya (excessive travel by any modality). Through an in-depth research of symptoms of apanvayuvaigunya distributed throughout the Samhitas, this study uncovers the secret wisdom of apanvayuvaigunya.

To gain a full grasp of the setting, symptoms of Apana Vayuvaigunya were gathered from important Ayurvedic publications. Starting with Vatavyadi, Arsas (piles), Asmari, Prameha, Sosha, Jwara, Rakthapitta (Bleeding disorders), Vatarakta, Gulma (phantomtumour), Udara, Mutrakrcha (difficulty in urination), and so on, Apanavata is invariably related with the component of aetiology in 45 diseases. Later, the symptoms possibly linked to Apanavata vitiation in disorders were compiled, and 332 symptoms were discovered to be linked to Apanakopa (vitiation of apana). These symptoms were then categorised into three categories: most frequently occurring symptoms, fairly frequently happening symptoms, and least frequently occurring symptoms. Thus, 28 symptoms that can arise as a result of atiyana were chosen from a total of 332 symptoms. The number of Apanavaigunyajanyavyadhis is increasing in the current day as a result of irregular and bad ahara, vihara habits, as well as the repression of natural desires, which impacts both bodily and psychological elements. Because work-related travel is on the rise, now is the ideal time to focus on this issue through the lenses of Ayurveda, Apanavayuvaigunya, and athiyana. The current study intends to investigate the hidden idea of Apanavaigunya stated in Ayurvedic literature aboutatiyana based on these data.
