Vidagdhajīrṇa (विदग्धजीर्ण) or Jaratpitta refers to indigestion (ajīrṇa) due to putrefaction of the bile (i.e., indigestion in which food in the stomach is putrefied before digestion, causing the putrefaction of the bile, and forming toximia), as defined in the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 4).—Symptoms of vidagdhajīrṇa:—“giddiness, thirst, loss of consciousness various ailments due to pitta, belching smoke-like vapour with sour taste, perspiration, and sensation of heat. [...] The three kinds of indigestion, viz. āmā, viṣṭabdhā, and vidagdha, give rise to visūcī, alasaka, and vilambikā respectively”.
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.
