Keywords:Bala, Vyayama, Adana, Visarga, Seasonal variations
Introduction - Ayurveda gives utmost importance to the maintenance of positive health. Health and longevity in turn depends on bala or inherent strength of the individual. Bala is different in different seasons. Bala is examined as the capacity to do exercise, which is indicative of physical power of an individual. If the reflection of variation of bala on the basis of hematological parameters is identified, then it will provide many possibilities to modify the diet and lifestyle of healthy individuals in order to maintain health in all seasons. This work is a humble effort to analyze the seasonal variations in bala with respect to physiological objective parameters in the settings of Govt. Ayurveda medical college, Kannur, Kerala, India. Methods - In this study 30 healthy individuals between the age group of 20-30 were selected having similar vyayamasakthi- ie, based on the time taken to attain ardhasakthi lakshanas in treadmill test. First assessment was done in adanakaala. Their basic details, dasavidha pareeksha were taken before treadmill test. After 3 days of treadmill test, blood investigations were analyzed. The same procedure was done in visarga kaala also.Results - On the basis of analysis, the bala assessed by vyayamasakthi in visarga kaala was increased than adana kaala. Hemoglobin and HDL cholesterol were increased and serum calcium was decreased in visarga kaala. Considering vital parameters, increase in pulse rate, heart rate, systolic and diastolic BP was noticed in visarga kaala; all within physiological limits. Discussion – Bala was decreased in adana kaala due to the intensity of sunrays and intense dry wind. It causes decreased time to attain the ardhasakthi lakshana. Sweat occurs early. The bala was higher in visarga kaala compared to adaana kaala.
