Abstract

STUDY OF ANATOMICAL VARIATIONS OF JIVHA IN DIFFERENT PRAKRITIES

Vd. Vandana K. Koni* and Vd. Sarika S. Chopde

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda, has a holistic approach and includes all the factors which are absolute or accessory in the determination of health.“Prakriti” is one of the most important concept and it is decided at the time of conception. Prakriti indicates, toward physical or Dosha constitution. Involvement of Dosha in Prakriti formation may be individual or intermingled. The individuals of specific Prakriti exhibit biological variations in terms of structure. As the Prakriti differs from person to person, there may be some variation in constitution of their body i.e minute differences in body parts. As there are variations in body part with respect to Prakriti, there may be minute variations in Jivha (Tongue) structure also. Tongue analysis is an ancient health assessment technique,that is still used in Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic practitioners. In Ayurveda utmost importance is given to, Jivha Parikshan. Jivha Parikshan is the examination tool to determine a person‟s mental, physical and emotional state of health. A detailed study and analysis of the concept of the Jivha, its Rachanatmak and Kriyatmak aspect is of utmost importance as Jivha is one of the important sense organ. Various Ayurvedic Samhitas have been referred for a detailed literature review of this concept. Its Utpatti, its Panchabhautikatwa, all have been encompassed in the article. In order to understand any Tongue abnormality or Tongue disease (Jivharoga) a detailed study of the structure and function of Jivha is necessary. The conceptual aspect of Jivha needs to be understood because Jivha is the mirror image of the digestive system. Also the concept of Prakriti-Jivha relation needs to be understood as Prakriti exhibit biological variations in terms of structure.

Keywords: Jivha, Jivharoga, Jivha Parikshan, Tongue, Prakriti.
