Abstract

A pale yellow discolouration on the skin is one of the clinical symptoms of Pandu "Roga, a disease entity mentioned in Ayurveda that is related to many types of anaemia. Pandu Roga, now recognized as Iron Deficiency Anaemia, has traditionally been associated with dietary factors and iron absorption. Along with the several etiological elements, Acharya Charaka has specifically highlighted a few psychological causative factors. Three of these characteristics — Chinta, or excessive concern; Bhaya, or fear; and Shoka, or grief—are major contributors to the pathophysiology of Pandu Roga. However, emerging research indicates that psychological factors play a substantial role in its etiopathogenesis. This article investigates the intricate relationship between the mind and the body in the context of Pandu Roga, shedding light on the influence of psychological stress, psychosomatic aspects, and behavioural patterns. It reveals that these variables interfere with the body's normal iron distribution process and have an impact on erythropoiesis, which results in iron deficiency anaemia. Understanding these connections is vital for a holistic approach to the prevention and treatment of anaemia, emphasizing the importance of addressing both physical and psychological factors in patient care.

Keywords: Anaemia, Stress, Pandu, Anxiety etc.
