There is two main purposes for the description of ayurveda as swasthya rakshan (to live healthy) and roga prashamana (to treat diseases) and the description of ritusandhi comes under swasthya rakshan (to live healthy) purpose. Ritusandhi is an environmental term as described in ayurveda. Basically it is numerical term which signifies about the total number of days before starting a season (ritu) and after starting a season . Ritusandhi has been described by approximately all ayurvedic acharyas under the concept of ritucharya ( which lifestyle should be followed in various seasons) . Ritusandhi kala is very sensitive in relation to health so ay urvedic acharyas have given maximum stress to follow regimens described under ritucharya in ritusandhi. Seasonable diseases are very effective in persons who do not follow ritusandhi ritucharya. Ritusandhi is a time period of fourteen days or two weeks. Ac harya Sarangdhar has said yamadrastha instead of ritusandhi and the time period is of sixteen days. Ayurvedic acharyas have great knowledge about the effects of season variation over body that’s why they described how we can live healthy life in seasonal v ariation.
