Agadtantra, Gara Visha, Life style disorders, poison


Agadatantra, is a unique clinical division of Ayurveda, which was in practice since time immemorial. Gara visha is a magnificent perception explained by Acharyas in various texts, which throw light on the changing life style and possibility of exposure of toxins. In our daily life activities we are unintentionally exposed to one or other type of toxin. This will augment the hazard of disorders like, heart attack, stroke, cancer, skin ailments etc. Education and public awareness programme is required to make people conscious of the risks. Gara visha is prepared unnaturally by the combination of various substances to produce various diseases. It doesn’t cause instantaneous death of a person, since it takes some time for this type of poison to get metabolized. Currently due to the influence of fast life, fast foods, pesticides, adulteration, environmental pollutants the people are exposed to toxins from various angles. One day this becomes unbearable as far as health is concerned. Un-systematic utilization of all these resources leads to exogenous or endogenous toxicity. Agadatantra gives a vast view on this topic by evidently explaining definition, symptoms, mode of administration and treatment. We can notice the incredible influence of today’s changing life style by close examination of this subject. Today man is normally exposed to these artificial poisons which are prepared by the mixture of poisonous and non poisonous substances. Hence, it is the need of the time to be aware of properly about all the possible toxins which we are exposed unknowingly.
