Components of fundamental principles of Ayurveda (including history)
This section of the document outlines issues of safety, incompatibilities and contraindications considered important by the community of Ayurvedic Doctors. Please refer to other relevant WHO guidelines for general safety issues in the use of herbal medicines. The community of practitioners of Ayurveda notes that adverse events may be caused by contamination, adulteration, misidentification, inappropriate use of species and/or prescribing dosages above accepted levels.
Use of Ayurvedic medicines
A medicinal plant should never be collected from an anthill, a dirty or marshy place, gravelly land, a graveyard or a footpath. A plant infected or spoiled by fire, cold, water or any other damage should not be used for preparing a medicine. The practitioner must carefully examine the following factors in a patient before deciding on the patient’s humoral constitution and the medicine or therapy to be administered:
• bala (physical strength)
• kala (time)
• anala (digestion; fire)
• prakriti (general constitution)
• vaya (age)
• satva (mental strength)
• satmya (favourable factors)
• ahar (diet)
• avastha (stage of the illness)
Safe use of metals, minerals and poisonous substances
minerals and poisonous substances must be properly processed in order to be
used as a medicine or in a medical formulation, i.e. shodhan for poisonous
substances and shodhan and
maran (wherever necessary) for metals and minerals, as improperly purified
substances are likely to create toxic effects.
Adverse effects of improperly processed dravya (bhasma)
Metals and minerals for maran require specific processing in order to decrease the risk of adverse effects. Metallic and mineral medicine formulations (bhasmas) should also be subjected to the following tests for purification before administration:
• varitaratwa – should float on water;
• rekhapurnatwa – should be fine enough to fill the ridges on the surface of the fingers;
• nirutthatwa – the metal should not make an appearance in its original form after subjecting the bhasma to processing;
• nishchandratva – should be lustreless;
nishkalanka – specifically for tamra (copper) bhasma; no green color should
appear when tamra bhasma is mixed with curd or any sour substance.
Ayurvedic practitioners should warn patients when metals, minerals or poisonous substances are included in the prescription. Information regarding the use of these substances, signs of potential adverse effects and recommendations for emergency response to these adverse events should be provided.
Medicines having opposite veerya (temperamental potency) should not be combined.
Viruddha ahar (incompatible dietary combinations) including:
• fish and milk
• meat and milk
• sour substances and milk
• salt and milk
• fruits and milk
• peas and milk
• leafy vegetables and milk
• radish leaves and jaggery
• banana with buttermilk or curd
• curd and ghee
• storage of ghee in brass containers for more than 10 days
• frying of long pepper in the same oil in which fish has been fried.
Adverse reactions and contraindications
Accidents and adverse reactions
Accidents and adverse reactions may occur if:
• plants, whether poisonous or not, are not purified before preparation of Ayurvedic medicine as per guidelines of Ayurveda;
• metals and minerals are not purified during manufacture of pharmaceutical forms; precautions necessary at the time of collection of various parts of plants are overlooked;
• the practitioner’s knowledge of poisonous species and metal-containing medicines and their dosage forms is inadequate;
• substandard or low-quality medicines are used;
• medicines are used for indications that are not approved;
• medicines are misused;
• medicines interact adversely with chemicals, other medicines and
• the provider lacks skilled knowledge of constituents of mineral origin, medicines and their dosage forms.
Contraindications in therapy
Knowledge of contraindications is just as important with respect to therapeutic measures as it is with respect to medicines. It helps to avoid exacerbating disorders and may prevent adverse effects.
Panchakarma is a group of five therapeutic procedures: vaman (emesis), virechan (purgation), anuvasan and asthapan basti (evacuation enema), shirovirechan (errhine – procedure inducing nasal discharge) and rakta mokshan (blood-letting) to evacuate vitiated doshas from the body.
