All the living things in an ecosystem continued survival for food and other needs. For the protection of health and production of ailments Hita and Ahita anna is responsible respectively. Agni, which determines the quantity and quality of food to be consumed, is responsible for strength, fitness, longevity and essential breathing. Agni converts food in the form of biological energy, which is responsible for all the vital functions of our body. Grahani is the disease of Annavaha Srotas, as well directly related to status of Agni and diet habits. Passage of stools alternating with constipation or diarrhea (muhur baddham muhur dravam) is the fundamental symptom of Grahani Roga. Ayurveda regards Grahani as a Tridoshatmaka, which is the disorder of digestive system caused by reason of vitiation of Jatharagni, Saman Vayu, Pachakagni, Kledaka Kapha. The failure in digestion of ingested food (production of Pakwapakwam), malabsorption of the food absorption, excessive motility of gut resulting in recurrent emigration of the bowel. All the unpredictable variations of Agni i.e., Mandagni, Tiksnagni and Vishamagni are treated as Grahani Roga. So it should be primarily treated for Agnivardhana Chikitsa with the help of drugs which is Deepana (which boosts digestive power) and Pachana (digestive) qualities.
