Autonomic Control of Heart: ‘Vyāna Vāta’ is responsible for the forceful ejection of ‘Rasa-dhātu’ from the heart that later circulates all over the body to perform its function of providing nutrition (Caraka-saṃhitā Cikitsāsthāna 15/36 and Suśrutasaṃhitā Nidānasthāna 1/17).
The active site of ‘Vyāna Vāta’ is Heart. It makes the circulation of blood possible by controlling the heart. Vyāna makes ‘Rasa’ (the intravascular fluid including plasma and lymph) to get forcefully ejected out of the heart and makes it circulate throughout the body (Carakasaṃhitā Cikitsāsthāna 15/36). So, sympathetic and parasympathetic control of heart is indicated by ‘Vyāna Vāta’. Some authors have ascribed the functions of somatic nervous system also to‘Vyāna Vāta’ as movements like flexion, extension, opening and closure of eyelids have been said to be under its control (Carakasaṃhitā Cikitsāsthāna 28/9).
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.
