Abstract

JIVHA PARIKSHANA: THE REFLECTIVE TOOL FOR THE COMPLETE HEALTH ASSESSMENT OF HUMAN BEING

Dr. Sunil Chandrasen Dorle*, Dr. Madhavi Dattatray Gaikwad and Dr. Deepali Jitendra Amale

ABSTRACT

Tongue is generally known as the organ of taste. The tongue is the primary organ of taste and considered as the mirror that provides reflection of various disease conditions of the body's internal organs, particularly the organs of digestion and metabolism. The tongue also reflects the overall digestive, nutritive and metabolic conditions of the organism. A healthy tongue shall normally look clean and have a pink colour with no white coating. In Ayurveda, while describing primary health assessment the Acharya Yogaratnakara has mentioned tongue examination as Jiwha Pariksha under Ashtasthana pariksha. Jiwha (Tongue) provides vital information about the Dosha, Agni and Kostha. The tongue is the window to our digestive system. There is a large amount of information that can be learned from this observation, including the health of various bodily systems, toxins within the system, emotional states, and much more. So, the tongue examination becomes an important starting point in the clinical examination of the patient and a careful observation of the state of tongue, its colour, and shape often gives a physician an insight into the current health condition of the patient which in turn helps to reach up to certain diagnosis for illness of the patient.

Keywords: Jivha Pariksha, Ama, Koshtha, Pandu, Trushna.
