*Dr. Amrit Malik, Dr. Sudhir Malik and Dr. Chinky Goyal
Poison is in everything, only the dose decides its effects. One of the hidden poison is the concocted poison known as Gara visha. Ayurveda explains this visha as the combination of poisonous or non-poisonous substances which produces chronic toxicity by interfering in the process of digestion. We unknowingly consume various combination substances which are harmful to our health. The insect powder, human waste products are some of the agents of Gara visha. Many food items we consume daily contain some of the natural toxins. By knowing these food items we can reduce the chances of toxicity. Ayurveda defines Gara visha in a marvellous way and describes the treatment as well like Vamana karma, Agadpaana. Ayurveda plays an important role in management of Gara visha.
