Ayurveda (science of life)
Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to a combination of fever (jvara) and diarrhoea (atisāra) that is caused due to an excess of pitta.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics.

Rasashastra (chemistry and alchemy)
Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to “fever with diarrhoea” defined in the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 3, jvarātisāra: fever with diarrhoea). Sometimes, fever (jvara), due to an excess of pitta, is attended with diarrhoea (atisāra) due to the same cause. Diarrhoea also is sometimes attended with fever. Such a combination of fever and diarrhoea is called “jvarātisāra”. One suffering from jvarātisāra should, first of all, be made to fast and to take such medicines as can digest the undigested chyle, which is invariably a partial cause of both fever and diarrhoea. Fasting and digesting medicines do away with the undigested chyle, and help to pacify the diseases.Source: Wisdom Library: Rasa-śāstra
Rasashastra (रसशास्त्र, rasaśāstra) is an important branch of Ayurveda, specialising in chemical interactions with herbs, metals and minerals. Some texts combine yogic and tantric practices with various alchemical operations. The ultimate goal of Rasashastra is not only to preserve and prolong life, but also to bestow wealth upon humankind.
