Dr. Palak A. Dangi*, Dr. Khushbu J. Ghadia, Dr. Rohini R. Salve and Dr. Falgun Patel

Abstract

Ahara, Nidra, Brahmacharya are three Upasthambha of body. If equilibrium of these three is maintained Svasthavastha is achieved. Any disturbance to these results in Vyadhi- Utapatti. Acharya Charaka has described the features of healthy body, having equal distribution of Mamsa (muscular tissue) and properly distributed build up. For living healthy and disease-free life, in our Samhitas, there is description of Dinacharya (daily regimen), Ritucharya (seasonal regimen) and Ahara Vidhi Visheshayatanani (dietic rules and regulations). Due to wrong habits of food intake eg. Bakery items- Pizza, Samosa, Viruddha Ahara, excess Non-veg food, results in production of disease like Sthaulya. Similarly while treating patient, proper balance of these three, especially Ahara should be maintained. Due to defective food habits (quantitative and qualitative) number of diseases may developed. Many times such patients try to reduce weight by doing dieting, without consulting a Vaidya or Doctor. To reduce weight, diet and medicine are equally important. Properly consumed food provides fuel to the fire of digestion, they promote mental as well as physical strength, strength of tissue elements and complexion and they are pleasing to the senses. While treating Sthaulya proper selection of food according to their properties is important to avoid any nutrient deficiency in the body. Here an attempt has been made to analyze Ahara Varga described by Acharya Charaka to treat Sthaulya Vyadhi.

Keywords: Sthaulya, Obesity, Ahara Dravya, Guna, Doshaghnata, Charaka Samhita.
