Rookshana as a Bahya (external) and Abhyantar (internal) Chikitsa in management of Medoroga - A Case Study
When all the Dhatus in the body are at their Samyak Pramana (optimum levels), each of them contribute towards the Arogya (health of body). But when there is Vikriti abnormality in any of the Dhatus, whether it is Pramanataha (quantity) or Gunataha (quality), then it surely affects both the Sharira (body) and Mana the (mind). Medoroga is one of the best example of Vyadhi (disease) caused due to Pramanataha Vriddhi and Gunataha Vriddhi of the Dhatu. Medas is mentioned as one among the Sapta Dushya and is considered as prime Dushya in context of various Vyadhis (diseases) like Prameha, Medoroga, Sthaulya etc. Excessive accumulation of Meda Dhatu (Fat) in body is known as Medo Dusti. Medo Dusti includes several Medo Vikara, which are grouped as Medoroga. Sthaulya included under Santarpanjanya Vyadhi as “Medoroga”. In Ayurveda, Chikitsa is divided as Bahyaprimarjana and Antaparimarjana. Udvartana is considered under Bahirparimarjana Chikitsa. Here a case of 6 yrs old female patient presented with symptoms of Udarvriddhi, Katipradesi Medovriddhi and Stana Vriddhi from 2 yrs was treated by Ayurvedic treatment included Bahya and Abhyantar Chikitsa.
