Dr. Rashmi Gurao*, Dr. Nakul Khode, Dr. Subhash Chandra and Dr. Omprakash Dadhich

ABSTRACT

Background: Obesity is the most prevalent form of malnutrition. It is the key risk factor in most of the metabolic as well as chronic disorders. The old wisdom of dietary and regimental habits finds no place in 24*7 on the go lifestyle, resulting in higher prevalence of Santarpanajanya Vyadhi like Sthaulya. Aacharya Charaka has mentioned Sthaulya as Atinindita, so a comprehensive approach is required for its alleviation. The Guna Chikitsa Siddhanta is one of the important principles of Ayurveda, etiopathogenesis (Hetu), symptoms (Lakshana) as well as management (Chikitsa) too are described in the form of Guna. It emphasizes on the use of relative contrary Guna (quality) for the alleviation of specific Guna in the body. The Guru Guna is synonymous to Sthulatva. Laghu Guna is illustrated as absence of Guru Guna. The compound Vidangadi Churna is devoid of Gurutva i.e. Laghu Gunatmaka and hence show emaciation in Sthaulya due to Prabhava. The present trial was so designed to assess the effect of Vidangadi Churna on Sthaulya and relevance of Chikitsa Siddhanta aforesaid. Method: The Vidangadi Churna was given to 30 Sthaulya patients of either sex age - 16–40yrs in a dose of 3gm BD with Anupana Madhu before meal for 45 days. Result: The effect of therapy on various anthropometry parameters was highly significant. The decrease in various circumferences of the body was more as compared to weight loss. Conclusion: The Vidangadi Churna mainly acts on subcutaneous fat and thereby beneficial in Sthaulya.

Keywords: Santarpanajanya Vyadhi, Sthaulya, Guna Chikitsa Siddhanta, Vidangadi Churna.
