Viṣṭabdhājīrṇa (विष्टब्धाजीर्ण) or simply Viṣṭabdhā refers to indigestion (ajīrṇa) attended with flatulence, as defined in the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 4).—Symptoms of vidagdhajīrṇa:—“colic, flatulence, all sorts of pain in the stomach, due to the derangement of vāyu, constipation, and non-discharge of wind from the stomach, loss of consciousness, and pain in the limbs. [...] 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.
