Abstract: Ayurveda is the most supreme science of medicine as it deals with all aspects of life, particularly of human beings. It talks about both health and diseased condition and its preventive aspects. Vishvachi is one among Vatavyadhi and has a close resemblance with the signs and symptoms of Cervical Radiculopathy. The lakshanas of Vishvachi is all alone mentioned in classics where in the nidana, purvarupa, samprapti must be considered from the light of samanya vatavyadhi. As a result of urbanization, we most commonly witness people often going for long drives, doing late night jobs, working in computers excessively. On the counterpart daily wage laborers, some occupational postures like in teachers, coolies, drivers, tailors are victims of cervical radiculopathy, are the commonest causes of neck pain. Ayurveda gives first importance to prevention of disease through nidana parivarjana (avoiding etiological factors). Hence here this is an attempt to explain the Nidanapanchakas of the disease Vishvachi and its possible Aharaja nidanas (dietetic etiological factors).
