Dr. Arjina Fatima*and Dr. Varsha Kulkarni

ABSTRACT

Ahara has been given prime importance in Ayurveda which is considered to be one among the Trayopastambha (pillars of life). Viruddha Ahara (incompatible food) is a unique concept described in Ayurveda. As per Acharya Charaka, any Ahara Dravya which disturbs or provokes the Doshas but does not expel them out of the body is said to be Viruddha Ahara. The food which is of unacceptable combination, has undergone inappropriate processing, consumed in incorrect dose or consumed in unsuitable time and season is called as Viruddha Ahara. If such type of Viruddha Ahara is consumed that will lead to Viruddha Aharajanya Vikaras in later period of life. So it is utmost important to study about the diseases which manifest by Viruddha Ahara and to know how to treat these diseases. This article emphasizes on the concept of Viruddha Ahara with respect to certain food articles which are used in present scenario and the role of Shodhana Karma in treating the diseases caused by the consumption of Viruddha Ahara.
