Abstract

IMPORTANCE OF PATHYA-APATHYA AS PREVENTIVE AND CURATIVE CARE IN URDHWA-JATRUGATA ROGAS W.S.R TO COVID-19

Dr. Sarala Dudhat* and Dr. Reshmi G. R.

ABSTRACT

Entire mankind across the world is now suffering physically and mentally by Covid-19, an infectious disease caused by newly discovered corona virus. Even after observing social distancing, hand washing, wearing mask as part of breaking the chain for prevention, it became pandemic very easily causing massive number of deaths in developed countries also. Covid-19 positive cases are still rising and a second wave of infection are reported in many countries. So in this scenario enhancing Vyadhikshamatva of the body is very important in preventive aspect which is well explained in Ayurveda, an ancient medical science originated in India centuries back. Out of the 8 branches of Ayurveda, Shalakya tantra is known as Urdhwajatrugata Roga Chikitsa as it deals with diseases pertaining to organs above Jatru (clavicle). Ayurveda is considered as life science as it emphasize more on preventive aspect of disease through Pathya- Apathya (wholesome and unwholesome factors) described in Dinacharya (daily regimen), Ratricharya (night regimen), Ritucharya (seasonal regimen) and Sadvritta (code of conduct) and also gives importance to mental health as mind and body are inter related which is explained in Achara rasayan. This conceptual study is aiming to look into the Pathya-Apathya explained in Ayurvedic classical texts which can be used in preventing and curing Covid-19 by enhancing Vyadhikshamatva (acquiring Bala of Dhatus and resisting strength against Covid-19) through maintaining the equilibrium of Doshas present in the body.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Urdhwajatrugata roga, Covid-19, Pathya-Apathya, Dinacharya, Ritucharya, Sadvritta, Achara rasayan, Vyadhikshamatva, Dosha, Dhatu.
