Conceptual study of bhaishajya-kal in ayurveda: A review
Hari Krishna Shriwas, Sandeep Tiwari
Ayurveda, the most ancient medical science, has given Trisutras, namely, Hetu (causative factor), Linga (signs and symptoms), and Aushadha (treatment). The last part of this trio has been given equal importance as the former two. Our Science has always believed that there will be rhythmic changes in the predominance of bodily doshas with time. Hence when a medicine is given it is equally important to take into consideration Vaya, Agni Bala, RogiBala, Roga Bala, Ritu, etc. Bhaishajya Kala is the essential tool for the administration of Aushada, negligence may lead to a grave deficit in the treatment. Apart from this, the time of administration of medicine is equally important as the timed dosage is surely going to improve the treatment outcome.
