Abstract

EFFECT OF VIRECHANA ON STHOULYA - A CASE STUDY

Diksha Dayaram Pathade*, Gopal Gayakwad and Jayshree Govindrao Bharkade

Abstract

Nowadays, lifestyle disorders are on the rise due to a sedentary lifestyle. Exposing oneself to modernization, science, and technology development unknowingly invited a number of diseases, out of which Sthoulya is one. Obesity leads to negative effects on health; it reduces life expectancy and also increases health problems. Obesity is seen in people of all age groups. Mostly, obesity is more prevalent in people with high socioeconomic status, specifically in urban communities. Obesity is a high-risk factor for complications like hypertension, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, infertility, a certain type of cancer, and immunological disorders. In Ayurveda, obesity can be compared with Sthoulya. Pathological disturbance in Kapha and Pitta dosha is a major factor in Sthoulya. Ayurveda manages these disorders (Sthoulya) in a holistic approach with diet, lifestyle, medication, and Shodhankarma. So, Ayurvedic internal medicine, along with the Shodhan procedure, were selected for the case study, which achieved the best results. Virechana is the best Shodhan Karma in the Vatta and Pitta Vyadhi. The line of treatment planned was Deepana, Pachana, and Snehpana, followed by Virechana.

Keywords: Obesity, Sthoulya, Shaman & Virechana Chikitsa.
