Abstract

Ayurveda has a speciality that it can cater both healthy and sick people by using same raw drugs. Anupana is a wonder tool which helps to enhance drug action, change mode of action, helps to get rid of undesired effects, enhance bio availability and makes the medicine palatable as well as target oriented. Anupana is used for both medicine as well as food. Even though there are so many advantages of proper Anupana, there are many practical difficulties while selecting Anupana in day to day practice.

Patient comes with such difficulties in every day practice which forces a Vaidya to use anything available and comfortable to the patient. This definitely results in action of medicine as well as food. This article aims to find out such hassles and ways to overcome it.
