AAHARA AS AUSHADHA - REVIVING THE CONCEPT OF AUSHADHA SIDDHA YAVAGU
The current trend in Ayurveda practice is more medicinal approach than wholesome one. The importance of Aahara (dietary aspect) has been compromised to a great extent owing to the convenience of patient as well as the ignorance of the physician. To bring back the wholesome practice into vogue, there is a need for developing techniques to keep-up with the fast paced modern life yet conserve the classical foundations. Through this study we try to introduce the concept of ‘Instant Aushadha Siddha Yavagu‘, and how it can be made. The sample was prepared by adopting classical methods of Yavagu preparation, along with simultaneous use of certain modern techniques of drying in hot air oven. The prepared product served the main intention of reducing the efforts at the receiving end; without compromising on the quality of product. Thus it can be concluded that further researches can be carried out in this direction to bring out such products for benefits of the society. As this field is relatively unexplored there is a wide scope for exploration.
