ABSTRACT

Introduction: In regards of Sthaulya, Acharya Charaka has enumerated it under Asthauninditiya Adhyaya in Charaka Samhita Sutra Sthananam, Adhyaya 21st. Sthaulya has been considered as one of the despicable conditions by Acharya Charaka. Ayurveda has identified Obesity as a Disorder very early. Acharya Charaka has enlisted Eight Types of Censurable Persons, out of which Atikrisha (Very Emaciated) and Atisthula (Very Corpulent) are more significant. Ati Sthula or Obese Person needs more attention because it is considered as Kricchra Sadhya and has more Complications than Very Emaciated Person. Treating Sthaulya or Obesity has its own limitations as there is No Specific Line of Treatment for Treating Sthaulya. Also, Treating Obese Persons is difficult as they lack enthusiasm and zeal towards living a Healthy Lifestyle. Besides this, Obesity is also considered as a Lifestyle Disorder. Although many Therapies have been put forward for treating Sthaulya, there is a need for an Ultimate Line of Treatment for treating Sthaulya. Hence, this Study was carried out at Parul Institute of Ayurveda (PIA) - Limda - Vadodara (Gujarat), for finding a Therapeutic Intervention for Sthaulya. Materials And Methods: Total 30 Patients were undertaken for this Research Study. Both Male and Female Patients attending the OPD and IPD of Parul Ayurved Hospital, Khemdas Ayurved Hospital and Parul Sevashram Hospital were selected at Random without bias of Social, Economic, Educational, or Religious Status. In Total, 33 Patients were enrolled for the Study wherein 3 Patients had Dropped Out. The Assessment of Treatment was 15 Days and Follow Up was done after 30 Days of Virechana Karma. Results: Vacha-Haridradi Gana Siddha Ghrita (Treatment Group) has achieved far better results in treating Sthaulya as compared to that of Go Ghrita (Control Group). E.g. – In one of the Subjects belonging to the Treatment Group (Group B – Treated with Vacha- Haridradi Gana Siddha Ghrita), BMI before the Treatment was 26.00, which reduced up till 24.20 after the Treatment. Conclusion: Vacha-Haridradi Gana Siddha Ghrita is more efficacious in Treating Sthaulya as compared to that of Go Ghrita. Also it was more effective in treating the Subjective as well as Objective Parameters like BMI, Body Circumference, and Skin Fold Thickness.

Keywords: Vacha-Haridradi Gana Siddha Ghrita, Go Ghrita, Sthaulya, Asthauninditiya Adhyaya, Charaka Samhita, Sutrasthanam.
