Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest Indian tradition of medicine dating back to 5000 years and the oldest healthcare system in the world. Ayurvedic medicine focuses on natural and preventive means to eliminate the root causes of diseases. Restores the balance of the body. Ensures harmony between the body and mind, maintaining the connection between nature and man. Ayurvedic medicine has specialized en branch, called Svasthavritta,which means science for health (svastha) as a whole Maintaining obtained by creating a health circle in these ancient Ayurvedic texts vegadharan explained Svasthavrittoy word-… vega is a natural urge and Dhara suppression-.
Vegadharan this suppression natural impulses There are two types of natural impulses (urges): dharniya, the one that should be suppressed, and adharniya, the one that should not be suppressed. Therefore, dharniya vega is repressed urges (urges / desires), and adharniya vega is non repressed urges (urges / desires).
Mind and body influence each other. The main cause of many diseases is an excess of dharniya-vega, for example, manasika-vega, which means that they affect the mind. Today, science has proven that the mind is the root cause of all serious diseases, including cancer. Manasika Vega is described in Charaka Samhita, an old Ayurvedic text. Here are some of the Manasik Dharniya Vega (or mental natural impulses / urges / desires that should be suppressed by each person):
- Greed or lobha
- Woe or Shock
- Fear or Bhaya
- Anger or Krodha
- Ego or Akhankar
- Shamelessness or Nirlaiata
- Envy or Irshya
- Jealousy or Abhyasuya
- Passion or Kama
- Pride or mana
- Arrogance or Mada
- Anxiety or Chittodvega
- Longing or Vishada
- An inferiority complex or Daina
These promptings of the mind must be suppressed in order to maintain a strong mental health ovye and allow a person to lead a virtuous life, marked by enjoying the fruits of virtue or dharma. Ayurvedic tradition wants us to enjoy every moment of life, and encourages us to live with this moment. On the contrary, when we suppress non-repressed urges, the physiological functions in the body associated with these adharnia vegas create a pathological condition that can create non-infectious diseases in the future (Tiwari et al., 2013).
According to Ayurveda, various diseases are caused by the suppression of natural impulses known as Vega-Vidharan. Acharya Sushruta, an Ayurvedic Ayurvedic surgeon who is considered the “father of plastic surgery,” described 13 types of udawart horn corresponding to types of suppression of natural motives. Udawarta is a Sanskrit word meaning the ascending, reverse, or reverse movement of vata dosha and horn (disease). These 13 natural impulses are associated with the following:
- Belching (burping)
- Rapid breathing from the load
Suppression of these promptings / urges / desires creates improper signaling in the autonomic nervous system and, therefore, the disease. Let’s look at each of these 13 adharnia vega, which should not be suppressed by us:
1. Desire (Call) to urinate (Mutra vega):
Symptoms: when urination is controlled, it can cause retrograde outflow of urine to the kidney, stones in the bladder, bloating and improper programming of the nervous system over time. This can cause pain in the body, bladder and genitals. It can also lead to constipation, headache, difficulty urinating, bending the body near the abdomen, and stretching the abdomen.
Treatment: Do not suppress urination. These symptoms of Mutra vegi can be alleviated by putting the abdominal cavity on a hot bath, taking a hydromassage bath, massaging the body with oil, adding drops of ghee to the nose and making an enema.
2. Desire (Call) for defecation (Purish / Vit Vega):
Symptoms: suppression of feces can cause constipation, rectal sac, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, pain in the rectum and colon, obstruction of the stool and bloating, vomiting, air movement upward abdomen, halitosis and oppression in the heart area. Due to repeated absorption of toxins, you may experience body aches, leg pains, and headaches.
Treatment: The symptoms of Purish / Vit Vega can be alleviated by drinking two glasses of warm water in the morning, a hot pack, a bath or a steam bath, healing candles, an enema, and natural laxatives such as trifala, and laxatives such as prunes.
3. Desire (Call) for sperm excretion (Sukra Vega):
Symptoms: when men suppress their desire to excrete seminal fluid, it can cause retrograde ejaculation, increased blood flow, as well as pain and inflammation in the genitals. Difficulty with urination and pain in the area of the heart or throughout the body can also occur. A person can get a fever. There may be an increase in the scrotum and seminal stones, which causes pain in the testicles and pain during ejaculation. A person may even suffer from impotence, since sperm can ejaculate in the bladder.
Treatment: the symptoms of veggie shukra can be alleviated by massaging the entire body with therapeutic massage oil, a hot water bath, a modified diet (consisting of milk, rice and ghee) and a medical enema.
4.) Desire (Call) for gas / lowering air (Adhovata / Vata vega):
Symptoms: control over the desire to pass gas (lowering air) can lead to painful upward movement of air or wai in the abdomen, bloating and even abdominal swelling. This can cause physical weakness, loss of vision, loss of appetite and heart disease. It can also obstruct the passage of gases, bowel movements and urine.
Treatment. Symptoms of vata vegi can be alleviated with oils, hot compresses, a hot bath, oil massage and the use of boiled drinking water.
5.) Desire (Call) for vomiting (Chardi Vega):
Symptoms: Vomiting is the way the body tries to get rid of toxins. Thus, suppressing vomiting can cause a rash, skin diseases, itching, anorexia, fever, eye irritation, anemia, coughing, nausea, discoloration of black spots on the face, shortness of breath and swelling.
Treatment: The symptoms of veggie veggies can be alleviated by inducing vomiting after eating, bloodletting with a leech, starvation, eating foods without oil or oil, inhalation of medicinal smoke, exercise and cleaning.
6. Desire (Call) for sneezing (Kshavatu vega):
Symptoms: suppressing sneezing can lead to weakness of the senses, headache, stiff neck and sometimes paralysis of the face.
Treatment: The symptoms of kshavatu vegi can be reduced with external irritation of the head, shoulders and neck. You can use a hot pack, inhale medicinal smoke, use medicinal drops in your nose, consume ghee after eating, and balance vata dosha.
7. Desire (Calling) of a snarl (Vega Strike):
Symptoms: if you control your belching, you may experience hiccups, shortness of breath, dislike of food, trembling, heaviness in the heart or chest pain.
Treatment: Treating the Symptoms. The veg hit is a treatment for hiccups.
8. Desire (Call) to yawn (Jrumbha vega):
Symptoms: stopping the flow of yawns worsens Vata dosha and creates symptoms similar to suppressing sneezing. This can cause diseases of the eyes, throat, ears and nose. This can cause flexion of the body near the abdomen. This can lead to cramps, contractions, tactile sensations, tremors and tremors in the body.
Treatment: The symptoms of Jrumbha vegi can be treated by balancing Vata dosha.

Treatment: Symptoms of Shramshvas veg can be reduced if you rest and take a soothing diet.
There is also the 14th vega described by the Ayurvedic philosopher Wagbhata. This is the urge to cough (Kasa vega), the suppression of which can lead to loss of appetite, shortness of breath, heart disease, skin and hiccups. For the treatment of Casa Vega, Sitopaladi-churna paste, Talisadi-churna or Yashti-madhu-churna paste prepared in honey and warm water (Bagde and Sawant, 2013) are used.
Although natural impulses should not be suppressed, impulses should not be forced to initiate, since both of these tendencies can cause vata disorders. The natural impulse practice explained here allows the nervous system to perform functions in a timely manner and initiate the body’s vega to perform normal physical activities that detoxify. Suppression stops the elimination of waste and creates disorders of the nervous system leading to disease. In the modern world, the expression of these adharnias in Vegas in public is often considered rude. However, it is imperative to respond to these calls in a timely manner. If the suppression of natural impulses becomes a habit, it can be problematic for health in the long run. Let us now look at the scientific, published research paper on the suppression of natural impulses.
As discussed earlier, suppressing natural impulses such as urinary retention is considered harmful by Ayurveda. Diseases caused by the suppression of natural impulses were classified in Ayurveda as prajna aparadhaja. Prajna refers to diseases that begin with psychological roots and then have somatic involvement. The study examined the relationship between vega-vidharan and its effect on psychosomatic illnesses, which are considered physical illnesses caused by mental factors, such as stress and anxiety. We studied 25 normal healthy volunteers aged 20 to 40 years. This was followed by another study of 24 patients, of which 7 had cardiovascular disease, 7 had bronchial asthma, and 10 had peptic ulcer disease (Tripathi et al., 1981).
The effect of urinary retention on neurohumor was analyzed in subjects. Blood and urine samples were collected in the morning, and blood pressure, respiratory rate, and heart rate were measured. Volunteers drank 1.5 liters of water and kept urine for as long as possible. After holding the urine for a maximum time, a blood sample was taken and blood pressure, respiration rate and pulse rate were measured before the volunteers donated urine, which was then collected. Plasma catecholamine and plasma serotonin were measured in collected blood samples. Urine catecholamine levels were also determined and recorded in terms of creatinine in the urine, and 5-HIAA in the urine was also approximated using laboratory protocols. After voluntary maximum urinary retention, a significant increase was observed in all of the following neurohumoral parameters: blood pressure, pulse rate, respiratory rate, plasma catecholamine, plasma serotonin and catecholamine in the urine, as well as 5-HIAA in the urine.
An increase in blood pressure and catecholamines indicates stress. Any type of stress leading to the secretion of catecholamines in humans is caused primarily by stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. The increase in heart rate and respiratory rate can be explained on the basis of tachycardia caused by stress. An increase in serotonin can be interpreted as a non-specific reaction to a stressful situation. This study quantified stress expressed in terms of physiological and biochemical parameters. With voluntary urinary retention, there was a significant increase in the number of neurohumors that cause stress disorders, including cardiovascular disease, bronchial asthma, and peptic ulcer disease. It was concluded that urinary retention causes stress, weakens Vata dosha and, therefore, causes psychosomatic diseases.
This also confirms the ancient Ayurvedic concept of the harmful effects of adharnia vegas and vega-vidharan on the human body, for example, the practice of holding urine for a long time.
Our body is like a temple, and we must wisely listen to our natural impulses. When we suppress our vegas, we weaken the Vata dosha and create toxins in the body. Ayurveda is all about prevention. When we respect the natural impulses of our body, we create balanced health of mind and body. If we do not suppress our motives, we drive away the disease.
