Dr. Neha Yadav*, Dr. Arun Gupta and Dr. Megha Nautiyal

Abstract

Sthaulya is a common metabolic & lifestyle disorder caused by unhealthy diet and no physical activities. The etiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of Sthaulya is similar to Obesity. In this era where more than 50% of human beings suffered from this major ailment which causes various diseases like diabetes, hypertension etc. as well as psychological issues such as low self-esteem and lack of confidence. In Ayurvedic texts, Sthaulya is described under Santarpanajanya Roga. Sthaulya comes under the heading of Medoroga which results due to dysfunction of Medadhatvagni. According to Modern, Obesity is a condition in which excess body fat cause negative effect on health. The treatment for obesity in modern science mainly consists of dieting and exercise. In Ayurveda, Single or double therapy was done previously in the management of Sthaulya i.e, Vaman, Virechana & Lekhana Basti. In the present study, Lekhana Basti and Bhadradi Asthapana Basti were selected for Sthaulya. Basti therapy is considered Ardhachikitsa among all therapeutic measures and some physicians accept it as treatment because Basti has a vast field of action. Sthaulya is Kapha-Meda Pradhana Vyadhi with Medavritta Vata. The drugs of Bhadradi Basti have Ushna Virya and Kapha- Vatahara property. So, it regulates the SamanaVayu and restores the "Jatharagni" to normal, while also activating the VyanaVayu to break the Srotosanga and synergize the activity of Bhadradi Basti at the cellular level. Thus it helps to break the pathogenesis of the disease. Considering the above facts case study was planned to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of Bhadradi Asthapana Basti with Lekhana Basti in the management of Sthaulya (obesity) in 66 clinically diagnosed and confirmed cases of Sthaulya from OPD of Ch. Brahm Prakash Ayurved Charak Sansthan, Khera Dabar, Delhi.

Keywords: Sthaulya, Obesity, Meda dhatu, Bhadradi Asthapana basti, Lekhana Basti.
