In our daily routine life we take many things very lightly, though in our thinking those are very normal , yet we don’t know that those minute things may be very blunder for our life as well as our health. Taking interest in gossiping we don’t care about urinating, hunger or thirst etc. If it is done usually then it may create a lot of serious problems.

According to Ayurveda there are two kinds of Urges:

  1. Physical Urges which are known as Non- Suppressible Urges and
  2. Mental Urges which are known as Suppressible Urges.

The greatest scientist of Ayurveda writes in his text Charak Samhita in the vimana sthana chapter seventh. One who holds them at their coming time must have to be suffered by a lot of problems. So, every person who wants a healthy life, he must free from those as soon as possible.
