Shail H. Bhavsar: First treatment of ajirna is told to be langhan. Anyone heared about sadyo-vaman in ajirna???
Vd. Vipul Patil: Sadyo Vaman is indicated in acute ajiran,it's common if someone overeating than they self induce vomiting,and get relax But in jiran ajiran again think of vaman
Dr. Satish Panda: Incomplete metabolism due to weakened digestive fire leads to unprocessed state of food causing ajirna. ajirna due to agnimandya is the root cause of many diseases.If Ajirna is ignore it may lead to 8 uncurable diseases like vata vyadhi, ashmari, kushta, prameha, udara, arsha, grahani.
Gary Yuen: Is it not more accurate to say choosing food according to moment and adjusting quantity of ingredients according to properties such as heaviness.
Dr. Satish Panda: First line of treatment = langhana (fasting or lightening of intake) Treatment: Causative factors: heavy meals and eating before the next meal digested, irregular diet (vishamashen) avoid causative factors langhan (if aam less, hot water, shunti water) jeeraksha: hot water w/soaked cumin seeds, settle for an hour, then sip. deepan pachan (aam pachan) lakshan: sometimes constipated/sometimes loose stools (best drug is haritaki – it’s deepan, pachan, and vata valoma and mild purgative. Use for constipation. If loose, kutaaj. (Good for dysentery.) Musta (has all 3 deepan, pachan, graha – bec it has lost function of graha, brings tone. Churna w/warm water ½ hour before food to hold food properly. Takra: brings kshaya rasa which has property to hold (also best source of lactobacillus) Can add cumin powder to takra or danyak (coriander powder) Black raisins (dry grapes) 10-20 alone or with hot milk as anuloman Raisins aid with verechan, don’t cause it. Pomegranate juice (sour) good for grahani; seeds (astringent) If patient not having burning or gastric distress, give wet ginger and honey (honey=madhur, kshay). Chitrak: synonymous with agni. black pepper (mix with takra) light food: ½ food, ¼ water, ¼ vayu (cooked properly, no raw food/ mung kichari or mung dal, laja
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana:
Four types of Ajirna main symptoms
Aamajirna :- Atiudgar ( excessive burping)
Vistbadhajirna:- Angabhanga(Whole body ache)
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Recommended when dosha are Utklishta ,means ready to come out from GIT.
Gary Yuen: Caraka Su 25: eating once a day favorises the perfect absorption of food.
Ayulink: Only agnimandhya? Which are the causes of Ajirna?
Gary Yuen: Indeed. Advise of caraka Su 5: sali, sastika, yava, mung dal, amalaki, etc. Among modern foods, all common meats are likely heavy compared to wild forest and desert animals.
Dr. Satish Panda: Causes : Disobeying the dietary rules is the prime cause. suppression of urges. Irregular meals. Over eating. Sleeping during day time. Drinking excessive water unnecessarily. Not sleeping at night. Eating heavy food (i.e. food which are heavy to digest).Eating too much of spicy food. Adequate exercise also help to digest heavy food
Dr. V B. Maheshwari: Can anyone explain *aanshansh kalpana* in ajeerna vyadhi
Ayulink: Ajirne bhesajam vari means what?
Dr. Kalpesh Vani: In ajeernavastha vari ie. Koshna jal is the bheshajam ie. Medicine. No other medicine is required
Dr Jayesh Patel: Vari means enemy. Not to give medicines in ajirn. Cause in ajirn condition agni is not digest bheshaj (medicines).
Dr. Kalpesh Vani: Here in this shlok Vari means Jal not enemy. This is the shlok of Qualities of water
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Yes, very important and has wild application regarding digestion. But here in ajeerna water is to be given with " Yukti " that is idea. like hot /warm water/ boiled water /half reduced water like different formulations of water according to different levels of angimandya / or according to type of indigestion (ajeerna ) can be used.
Vd. Hardik bhatt: Without any medicine only half boiled water has any chemical change??
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: more boiling more laghu
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: May be bhaishja vari menas in Ajirna pt. Stay on liquid diet?
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: No liquid diet, only koshn JAL SOS. Ajirne Langhanam shrestham!
Dr. Vasupradha R: I guess वैरी s enemy
वारी s water. There's also a जलाजीर्णम् nah.. In that too ushna jalam can be used?
Shail H. Bhavsar: After langhan And sukhoshna jala use Deepan pachan should be done. Some medicines are Chitrakadi vati, Aam pachan vati
Vd. Manhar Prajapati: First judge the symptoms of jirn ahar lakshana....utsah udagarsuddhi vego nu smayk rite avavu..laguta khut pipasa. You feel energetic without belching your natural vega stool urine are normal lightness feel hungry thirsty these are symptoms for your food disgested. In ajirn indigestion you won’t get above symptoms. Now a days you most find out loss of appetite and heaviness of body and constipation...
Nitin Shah: Ajirne bhesajam wari
Dr. Dhara Barai: According astang harday in laghna 4 types sudhi also so sadhovaman and sadhovirechan is type of laghan
Ayulink: Ajirna is Sanskrit terminology to describe digestive disorder, very broadly we can say it is indigestion. This is first phase of metabolism errors, from here it starts aama production or any disease formation. Agni disturbance is primarily connected with Ajirna.
