Abstract

Introduction: In Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine that originated in ancient India, the concept of Desha (region or country) plays a crucial role in understanding lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda recognizes that the natural and environmental factors of a specific region significantly influence the physical and mental constitution of individuals.Acharya Charakareferred to the patients habitat as well as the land by using the name Desha. Acharya Vagbhata listed the 10 examinable elements for Desha and said that a doctor who thoroughly studies these will never hesitate to determine the proper medication for treating an aggravated Dosha. Understanding Desha is required for a complete assessment of the patient and the medication. Material & Methodology:Ayurvedic classics, commentaries, modern literature, research journals available in the institute library, and online resources were all used for inspiration for framing conceptual work. Discussion:Recognising Desha provides assistance not just with medication selection but also with patient examination and disease diagnosis. Everyone needs to be aware of its many practical elements. Applied aspect of Desha includes Role of Desha in health maintenance- SwasthasyaSwasthRakshanam& Role of Desha in Disease- AturasyaVikaraPrashaman. Conclusion:Pursuant to the current investigation, Desha affects a persons food and way of life from conception to death. From a health and illness perspective, Sadharana Desha is typically better than Anupa and Jangala Desha. These days, there is a lot of research being done on the gut microbiota, which highlights how crucial Desha is to leading a healthy life. Thus, this idea of Desha/ land/ locality/ place/ geographical area is crucial and need to be considered while organizing patient care or research projects, framing the policies too.
