Ayurved apparition towards deterrence and management of nicotine addiction w.s.r to Oral health and hygiene

Ayurved is the ancient Indian system of health-care and longevity. Oral hygiene is not described as a separate chapter in Ayurved but it comes under the different chapters of Ayurvedic literatures. Ayurved is known to be a complete medical system that comprises of physical, psychological, philosophical, moral and spiritual health. It is also called as a science of self-healing, an oldest healing system in the world because each individual and each cell is considered to be inherently an essential expression of pure intelligence. Addiction is defined as the continuous obsessive use of drugs regardless of adverse health or social consequences and withdrawal is the physical and/or psychotic disorders developed by drug addicts after they stop taking drugs or reduce their dose. Drug addiction is very frequent in our society and it crosses all races, ethnic groups, and social modules. All the Ayurved treatises have given emphasis on personal hygiene which should be followed by each individual strictly. Dhanta dhavan (Ayurvedic herbal toothpowder), Jihwa nirlekhana (Tongue scrapping), Kavala (Gargling) and Gandoosha (Holding fluid inside the mouth) are the procedures told by Ayurved for maintenance of oral hygiene. Ayurved is helpful in the reduction of side-effects of nicotine by various ways including the use of Rasayana (Rejuvination) such as Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Shatavari Asperagus racemosa), Bala (Sida cordifolia) etc. Moreover, Yoga can help in releasing tension and stress and increase the strength and vitality without using any form of nicotine.
