A little add on for the students of Ayurveda. Reference from the Sushruta Samhita.
Pachakagni is responsible for digestion and metabolism. It is of four kinds based on the involvement of dosha.
- The first variety is called samagni and is physiological state of agni. Balanced agni due to the balance state of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The remaining three types are the pathological conditions duet to the abnormality in dosha.
- Visamagni due to Vata, this will give rise to the manifestation of vata vyadhi. A person with Vishama or irregular Agni has variable digestive power. Sometimes the digestion is good and other times there can be distentions, constipation, diarrhoea, heaviness in the abdomen and colicky pain.
- Tikshagni due to Pitta, this will give rise to the manifestation of pittavikara. Tikshagni digest large quantities of food earlier to the scheduled time producing burning, sour belching, feeling of hot fumes coming out and diarrhoea.
- Mandagni due to Kapha, this will give rise to the manifestation of Kaphaja Vihara. The person with a weak digestive power, the person will take a long time even to digest a small quantity of food commonly suffers from heaviness, cough, breathlessness, drooping of saliva, nausea, state of exhaustion after eating food.
Effect of Agni Vaisamya (vitiated agni)
- Mandagni will produce apaka – inadequately digested or not digested at all.
- Tikshagni will be dagdhapaka – over burnt/ charred
- Visamagni will be pakwa- apakwa – mixture of digested and undigested food.
In all three conditions there will be accumulation of AMA.
