A Critical Analysis of Vilwadi Agada in Bacterial Toxicity W. S. R to Sookshma Visha
Abstract: Every food we eat, every drink we consume and every bit of air we breathe in contains the presence of thousands of bacteria, most of them are harmless but some of them are deleterious to health. Those bacteria which are deleterious include bacteria which can produce toxin from outside the body which is known as exotoxin and those bacteria which can produce toxin after entering into the body which is called enterotoxin. These toxins at times lead to destruction of immune system which produces many diseases and at times leads to death of the person affected. Visha is defined as any dravya which after entering into the body either affect the health of the person or leads to death of the person. Sookshma Visha is a unique concept of Visha which is mentioned in kriyakoumudi and this is a toxin which is very minute in nature. Vilwadi Agada is a classical formulation which is anti-toxic, anti-microbial and an immunity booster at the same time. This paper is an attempt to analyze the importance of Vilwadi Agada in Bacterial toxin with special mention to Sookshma Visha.
