Dr.Lavanya S.A - pathya kalpana

  1. 1. Under the guidance of Dr.M.S.Doddamani HOD & Professor Dept of RS & BK T.G.A.M.C, Ballari. By Dr.Lavanya.S.A 2nd Year PG Scholar Dept of RS & BK T.G.A.M.C, Ballari.
  2. 2. Our science which advocates more on “Prevention” rather than cure of diseases, obviously emphasizes on the ideal food to be consumed to attain and sustain good health. Food is most essential to sustain a good life and the same food if consumed inappropriately becomes the root cause of many diseases. So, proper knowledge about food and its importance should be known by all human beings to have better benefits from it. It is said to be Mahabheshaja (supreme medicine) by Acharya kashyapa. It is also quoted that “No amount of medication can do any good to patient who does not observe Pathya (proper regime of diet),likewise no amount of medication is needed to a patient if he follows Pathya”.
  3. 3. पथ्यं पथो अनपेतं यध्यच्चोक्तं मनसःप्रियम॥ - [च.सू.२५/४५] पथः - शरीरमार्ाात ् अनपेतम् - अनपकारकम् Acc to Chakrapani: xuÉxjÉxuÉÉxjrÉU¤ÉhÉqÉçAÉiÉÑUurÉÉÍkÉmÉËUqÉÉå¤É¶ÉåÌiÉmÉljÉÉ, iÉxqÉÉSlÉmÉåiÉÇmÉjrÉqÉç||
  4. 4. The root term for Pathya is ‘Patha’ which means various channels in the body & ‘Anapetam’ means not causing any harm to the human body. So, any food which is not harmful for body channels and on the contrary which is wholesome - soothing for body can be labelled as Pathya.
  5. 5. तुष्टः पुष्टर्ध्ुाततर्ुाद्धिरुत्साहः पौरुषं र्लम् । सौस्वयं ओजस्तेजश्च जीप्रवतं िततभा िभा ॥ आहारादेव जायन्ते एवमाध्या र्ुणा नृणाम् । तदात्मवान् हहतममतं काले भुञ्जीत षद्रसम् ॥ [ का.सं.खि ४/११-१२ ]
  6. 6. Need of Pathya Kalpana: • Pathya Kalpana is suggested in various places in Ayurveda. Pathya Kalpana must be used in Dinacharya( daily routines), Rutucharya (7 seasonal routines). • It is very much necessary for the patients to have the food which will keep their Dhatus ( basic elements) in a healthy state and will not let them get vitiated more from Doshas. So the patients must follow the “healthy way of consumption of food” i.e.”Pathya”. • Pathya Kalpana is also used in Panchakarma to boost the fatigued Annavaha Srotas (Digestive system) and Purishavaha Srotas ( Excretory system ) to regain the healthy stage from weakened one (which happened during the process of purification).
  7. 7. Importance of Samskara (Processing) Raw food is converted into a complete different form from its original nature. This is done to make changes in its properties to make it suitable for the acceptance inside the circulation from the body. These processing are done as per the need of an individual based on a lot of variables as discussed above (like season changes-disease-psychological status-habit-adaptability etc). It is said that “Samskara (processing)” brings the changes in the properties”. The change in a process makes the food completely of opposite properties from the same resource raw food material. E.g. – Laja & Pruthuka both are prepared by rice but Pruthuka are very heavy to digest as compred to Laja just because of the difference in their preparations.
  8. 8. Approach of both modern and Ayurveda towards suggesting the ‘Food-design’ to all: Instead of specifying the nature of diet, indications and contraindications of the specific preparations are mentioned as per the condition of the disease & their effects over the provoked doshas in Ayurveda, In modern dietetics, the nature of food is analysed by weighing the dominance of one of the following 3 broad types of the basic contents of the food as - carbohydrates, Fats & Proteins. But Ayurveda weighs the properties of food on its individual basis depending upon both the nature of the food and the nature of digestive capability of the patient who is going to consume that food. This obviously changes from person to person. Even it also changes as per the age- area of stay- adaptability-habit-status of mind- volume of the body- dominance of doshas in the particular patient.
  9. 9. So, modern dietetics are keener on choosing the types of food articles based on dominance of basic constituents in the food which will complete the daily fixed quota of calories. They choose the food articles in terms like protein diet-carbohydrate diet. On the contrary, an Ayurveda physician never stresses on specific quantity of diet to all. But he advises to vary the quantity as per the appetite of the patient (strength of digestive capability). He generally advises to have the food which will comprise all the six taste thus balancing the Panchabhautika (Penta elemental) constitution of the body.

  61. 61. Pathya Kalpana is basic but most important concept in Ayurveda which seems to be practical and must be practiced clinically in today’s era. The preparations made by Samskara , various methods of processing make the diet – more fruitful in terms of health. Importance of understanding “Pathya Kalpana” can be seen from the following points: • These preparations are made up from minimum & easily available ingredients • These are Simple methods of preparation. • These are very Cost effective methods. Concept of Pathya changes at every moment and with every individual.
  62. 62. What is Pathya to one person may not be Pathya to another person. Even it changes in the same person depending upon various components like –Age-psychological status etc. So considering and elaborating the diet plan need a lot of attention from the physician. Practically Pathya Kalpana is advised as a diet plan ‘in healthy individuals’ to let them stay fit, ‘to the patients’ to keep their channels in a healthy stage.
  63. 63. So “Pathya Kalpana” makes our food healthy and pleasurable. It is helpful in both the conditions viz Healthy and Diseased. It stresses Ayurveda’s approach that the digestive capability of the patients is equally important to that of the properties of the drugs. It covers all the nutritive values as it provides food having all the six tastes thus help in maintaining the penta elemental nature of the body. It also makes the food healthy thus acting over both body and mind. So Pathya Kalpana should be incorporated in our daily diet regime to achieve the basic objectives of Ayurveda.
