Rasona (रसोन):—Another name for Laśuna, a medicinal plant (Allium sativum) used in the treatment of fever (jvara), as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) which is part of the 7th-century Mādhavacikitsā, a Sanskrit classical work on Āyurveda.Source: Shodhganga: Dietetics and culinary art in ancient and medieval India
Rasona (रसोन) refers to “garlic” and is mentioned in a list of potential causes for indigestion in the 17th century Bhojanakutūhala (dravyaguṇāguṇa-kathana), and is commonly found in literature dealing with the topics of dietetics and culinary art, also known as Pākaśāstra or Pākakalā.—A complete section in Bhojanakutūhala is devoted for the description of agents that cause indigestion [viz., rasona (garlic)]. These agents consumed on a large scale can cause indigestion for certain people. The remedies [viz., payas (milk)] for these types of indigestions are also explained therewith.Source: Shodhganga: Edition translation and critical study of yogasarasamgraha
Rasona (रसोन) is another name for “Laśuna” and is dealt with in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes. The Yogasārasaṃgraha [mentioning rasona] 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.
General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Yoga Magazine: 2005
Ayurveda calls garlic 'the wonder food'. It is a very pungent root whose botanical name is Allium Sativum, and it is from the Aliaceae family. In Sanskrit it is called rasona, in Hindi lasan, and in Marathi lasoon. It gives strength to the body, and is especially good for the heart. It is included in almost all forms of Indian curries, although it is not eaten by very puritanical sects like Vaishnavites because it is reputed to be an aphrodisiac. It is also eaten raw with oil and chillies as chutney, or with salt as a blood cleanser and for nervous disorders such as headaches and hysteria.
