UTERINE FIBROID IN AYURVEDIC PERSPECTIVE AND ITS MANAGEMENT

Abstract

In present era, women are getting more beauty conscious rather than being health conscious. Therefore changing lifestyle and dietary pattern has become a major cause of increased incidence of gynecological disorders in women. Uterine fibroid is one of them, which is the commonly being faced by gynecologist in day to day practice. It hampers the quality of life of a female causing physical and mental grief which has a great impact on the wellness of her family. In ancient era the cases of Garbhasayath Arbuda were rarely found because of the lesser incidence of the risk factor of this disease like late marriages, postponement of pregnancy, nulliparity, sedentary lifestyle, improper food habits, chemical and adulterated food and polluted environmnent. Specific reference of Arbuda of female reproductive system is not available in any Ayurvedic classical book. On the basis of its origin from Garbhashaya and its surrounding structure it can be called as Garbhashaya Arbuda and can be correlated with uterine fibroid. Now- a- days the prevalence of uterine fibroid among women is between 30-50% due to inappropriate changes in lifestyle. If we look towards modern medicinal system for treatment of fibroid, we could hardly find hormonal therapy or surgical interventions as a solution. Hormonal therapy causes many side effects and unwanted complication like weight gain, depression, abnormal uterine bleeding and surgical therapy especially hysterectomy does not allow to preserve her fertility. This study is aimed to justify pathophysiology of uterine fibroid in Ayurvedic perspective with an intention to raise awareness and to encourage implementation of Ayurvedic therapies in such type of disorders. On the basis of pathogenesis, signs and symptoms of uterine fibroid, we can correlate it with Mansaja Arbuda mentioned in Susrutha Samhita. The treatment approach is directed towards reducing size of fibroids and symptoms uses Shodhana, Shaman and Shalyaja Chikista which are mentioned as a line of treatment in Arbuda Chikista contexts.

Keywords: Garbhasayadushtivikara, Yonirogvikara , Mamsa Vridhi , Uterine fibroid.
