Elaborationविष generally refers to any type of Sthaavara Visha ( belonging to the vegetable world ) or Jaangama Visha ( coming from living beings ).
The attributes of विष are exactly opposite to the Ojas, which resides in the heart. Therefore, when विष enters in to the body, it traverses to the heart ( Hridaya ), by its Vyavaayee and Vikaas`hee attributes and reaches in to the heart. There it hampers all the qualities of Ojas and proves as fatal.
It is necessary to prevent the विष from reaching the Hridaya. Therefore, Charaka Samhitaa explains 24 Upakrama . These all are having Vishaghna effect ( antipoisonous effect ); may it be Sthaavara or Jangama Visha .
