Sthaulya is the most frequent and earliest known metabolic condition in humans. There is an alarming increase in the number of cases of sthaulya over the globe. Sthaulya may be linked to obesity in western medicine. As far back as 1500 B C, Acharya charaka referred to it as medoroga, which translates to "adipose tissue afflictions." In ayurveda, descriptions of sthaulya are scattered in different ayurvedic classics, but in charak Samhita special attention is given to this disease. Agni in Ayurveda is defined as the entity which is responsible for all digesting, absorbing and assimilation of ingested food, which is inexorable for the maintenance of life in the human beings. Normal condition of agni is responsible for strength, health, longevity and vital breath.[6] Impaired Agni is the root of all imbalances and diseases and, an intensified state of agni is found in sthool individuals. Classically published review of sthaulya through the discernment of conventional territory like Charak Samhita, Sushrut Samhita with the existing commentaries and correlation with contemporary knowledge was done. The ayurvedic concept of this information on the subject regarding classification, characteristics features have been made in this paper. The aim and objective of this paper is to review the known concept of the Ayurveda about sthaulya and its preventive & supportive management and assessment of agnibala in sthaulya.

Keywords: Sthaulya, obesity, medoroga, adipose tissue, medovaha srotos, jatharagni dhatvagnis, medogni, bhutagnis.
