Dr. Hari Krishna Shriwas*, Dr. L. C. Harzpal and Dr. Rupendra Chandrakar
Ayurveda, the most ancient medical science, has given Trisutras, namely, Hetu (causative factor), Linga (signs and symptoms), and Aushadha (treatment). The last part of this trio has been given equal importance as the former two. Our Science has always believed that there will be rhythmic changes in the predominance of bodily doshas with time. Hence when a medicine is given it is equally important to take into consideration Vaya, Agni Bala, Rogi bala, Roga bala, Ritu etc. Bhaishajya kala are the essential tools for administration of Aushada, negligence may lead to the grave deficit in the treatment. Apart from this the time of administration of medicine is equally important as the timed dosage is surely going to improve the treatment outcome.
