Raktātisāra (रक्तातिसार) refers to “bloody diarrhoea”, and is mentioned in the 10th century Yogaśataka written by Pandita Vararuci.—The Yogaśataka of Pandita Vararuci is an example of this category. This book attracts reader by its very easy language and formulations which can be easily prepared and have small number of herbs. It describes only those formulations which are the most common and can be used in majority conditions of diseases (viz., Raktātisāra).

Only one decoction of Indrayava (Holarrhena antidysenterica Wall.), Ativiṣā (Aconitum heterophyllum Wall.), Bilva (Aegle marmelos Linn.), Uṣīra (Vetiveria zizanioides Linn.) and Mustā is indicated in sāma-atisāra (diarrhoea) and chronic Atisāra. This is also indicated in painful or Raktātisāra (bloody diarrhoea).

Raktātisāra (रक्तातिसार) refers to “bleeding 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and is one of the various diseases mentioned in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes.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 raktātisāra] 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).
