Abstract

CRITICAL REVIEW OF PRAMEHA POOVRAROOPA IN MEDODOSHA

Subramanya P. Shenoy, Rashmi*, Arun Kumar M. and Nagaraj S.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is an eternal science which deals with both preventive and curative aspect of the disease. Health is the level of functional and metabolic efficiency. It is an equilibrium state of a living organism. All the entities in the human body cease either to maintain the continuity of their manifestations or to undergo disequilibrium state due to affliction of respective srotas (structural or functional channels) and dhathu (major structural components of the body). Among the seven dhathu, medodhathu (fat tissue) is said to be responsible for snehana karma (oleation). In the present day life style, because of advanced technology and busy schedule life has become more sedentary and excessive intake of fatty foods add extra calories. This may lead to vitiation of medovaha srothas (channels carrying fat tissue) and results in medodosha (disease occurring due to accumulation of fat) which is abnormal alleviation of medas.[1] The vitiated medodhathu on their part vitiates other dhathu which gives rise to santharpanotta vikara (disease due to over nourishment) especially prameha (diabetes mellitus) which can be diagnosed through poorvaroopa (premonitory symptom) as explained in medodusti laxana.[2] The term medodosha is attributed to dyslipidemia as this is the leading cause for diabetes and their complications. Hence assessment of prameha poorvaroopa in patients of dyslipidemia is important so as to prevent the disease in earlier stage as well as to control further medodustijanya vikara.

Keywords: Medodhathu, medodosha, pramehapoorvaroopa, dyslipidemia, santharpanottavikara.
