Abstract

Under nutrition is a condition in which there is inadequate consumption, poor absorption or excessive loss of nutrients. Sometimes malnutrition and protein energy malnutrition are used interchangeably with under nutrition. The term protein energy malnutrition applies to a group of related disorders that include marasmus and kwashiorkor. Food is significant as a nutritional source, as well as having therapeutic value, and it plays a crucial part in regaining strength lost due to the disease's detrimental effects throughout the post-treatment phase. Ayurvedic scriptures haphazardly explain nutritional issues. Karshya is a childhood malnutrition like illness. Similarly, diseases described by diverse Ayurvedic authors as Parigarbhika, Phakka, Balashosha, and Shuska Revati might be linked to undernutrition based on clinical symptoms. These illnesses were linked to one another. Childhood malnutrition is thought to be the cause of 35% of all fatalities in children under the age of five, as well as 21% of total worldwide disability-adjusted life years lost in children under the age of five. The Ayurvedic perspective on dietary disorders such as protein-energy deficiency is highlighted in this article.

Keywords: Karshya, Balashosha, Shushka, under nutrition, Protein-energy childhood malnutrition.
