Ayurveda (science of life)Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to a combination of fever (jvara) and diarrhoea (atisāra) that is caused due to an excess of pitta.Source: Shodhganga: Edition translation and critical study of yogasarasamgraha
Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to “fever with diarrhea” and is one of the various diseases mentioned in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes. The Yogasārasaṃgraha [mentioning jvarātisāra] deals with entire recipes in the route of administration, and thus deals with the knowledge of pharmacy (bhaiṣajya-kalpanā) which is a branch of pharmacology (dravyaguṇa).
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
Rasashastra (chemistry and alchemy)Source: Wisdom Library: Rasa-śāstra
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.
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.
