Udararoga (उदररोग) refers to “diseases affecting the belly” according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 6). Accordingly, “slowness of the digesting heat is the cause of all sorts of diseases and especially of those affecting the belly [i.e., udararoga]. The latter arise out of indigestion, eating of dirty food, and accumulation of stool in the intestines. What happens just before the appearance of these diseases is this:—abnormal excess of the three doshas, accumulated for a long time, block the passages carrying sweats and other fluids, and thereby pollute the prana-vayu, the apana-vayu, and the digesting heat. The following are the common symptoms characterising all sorts of diseases affecting the belly [i.e., udararoga]:—flatulence, difficulty experienced in movement, weakness, weakness of the digesting heat, swelling of some of the limbs, lethargy felt in the movement of the limbs, difficulty in passing wind and stool, heating sensation, and drowsiness”.
There are eight (plus one) different kinds of Udararogas defined:
- Vātodara (formation of gas in the stomach),
- Pittodara (stomach affected by an abnormal excess of pitta),
- Kaphodara stomach affected by an abnormal excess of kapha),
- Tridoṣodara or Dūṣyodora (stomach affected by an abnormal excess of the three dosas),
- Plīhodara and Jakṛdudara (enlargement of spleen and liver),
- Baddhodara (malignant constipation),
- Kṣatodara (ulcer in the belly),
- Jalodara (dropsy),
- Mahodara (combination of more than one udararoga)
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.
