Fever, commonly referred as Jwara roga in Ayurveda, may have a significant effect on the human body, mind, and perceptibility. Ayurvedic medicine for fever is a broad subject. The deviation in kapha and vata doshas results in the manifestation of jwara. High kapha in the body causes cold, whereas too much vata suppresses the digestive fire, resulting in chills, indigestion, and weariness. The manifestation of a disease occurs when any of these doshas deviate from their regular state. According to ayurvedic literature, no illness can present itself unless one of the three doshas is vitiated. Vitiation in more than one dosha also causes disease, which is usually referred to as Ekdosha, dvidosha, tridosha.
The common indicators of jwara are: Santapa (rise in body temperature), Aruchi (significant appetite loss), Trishna (excessive thirstiness), Hridivyatha (pain in upper chest), Angamarda (body pain) etc.
Aruchi that occurs by dosha deviations alongside with ama (undigested food) is manifested due to reduction in jatharagni (digestive fire) as a result of dosha deviations. Low fevers, according to Ayurveda, are beneficial because they aid in the burning of impurities in the body. High fevers, on the other hand, must be managed by easing the load on the digestive system with a light diet and the use of herbs.
Lifestyle disorders and high or constant stress, imbalance in the nutrition intake leads to the imbalances of doshas which further leads to ineffective digestive mechanisms. In common terminology it refers to the accumulation of various toxins in the small and large intestine and further translocate to different organs of the body.
1. Mithyaahar-vihar (incompatible food intake) and Dhatu-vaishamya cause Jwara.
2. Food that is not fully digested creates a partially digested Rasa in the stomach known as “Ama,” which is not able to fuel the Dhatu because of hypofunctioning of digestive fire. The body’s Vata, Pitta, and Kapha will then grow as a result of the causative variables.
These imbalanced Doshas once set foot in the Amashaya (stomach), get mixed with Rasa dhatu and circulate throughout the body via the kaphagni, resulting in fever. Ama’s properties, such as Snigdh and Pichchila, will hinder the swedavaha srotas. Deficiency in Swedavaha srotas also lifts body temperature.
3. Jwara can be explained as an intense sensation across the mind and body.
