Ayurveda (science of life)
Mandāgni (मन्दाग्नि) refers to “dyspeptic” (having weak digestion). The literal translation is “slow digestion”. The term is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Suśruta-saṃhitā and the Caraka-saṃhitā.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Mandāgni (मन्दाग्नि).—One of the four states of Jāṭharāgni (digestive system);—The word Manda means mild. The strength of agni is less in this state. Even the slightest variation in regular amount is felt heavy for its capacity of digestion impairing the functions of agni. Mandāgni is influenced by kapha-doṣa. It is unable to digest even small amounts of food; creates heaviness in abdomen and head, cough, dyspnea, excessive salivation, vomiting, pain all over the body. It takes long time to digest even small quantities of food. This is said to be the basic cause for all pathogenesis.Source: PMC: Formation and validation of questionnaire to assess Jāṭharāgni
