Dr. Lalita Soni*, Dr. Surender K. Sharma, Dr. Sisir K. Mandal
India is in grip of epidemic medoroga as Indian economy grows. The food we take everyday contribute to our well being but the temptation for many peoples to eat more and do less is causing the medoroga very rapidly. In present era, lifestyle modifications and use of more and more junk food with stressful life helping obesity tree to propagate. As per current data, almost one in five and over one in six women are obese. In some urban areas the rate is as high as 40%. This ill effect of health may be responsible for various other disorders like osteoarthritis, malnutrition, diabetes and dyslipidemia etc. Dyslipidemia mostly causes atherosclerosis which ultimately resulted as coronary artery disease. Medoroga is mainly imbalancing of agni because of various etiolgical factor. The etiological factors may be Aaharatmak, Viharatmak, Mansik and others like Bijaswabhava (Hereditary). In etiopatholoical state intake of more fatty diet (Snigdha and Guru Aahar) and sedentary life obstruct the microchannels (Srotodusti). It may leads to vitiation of vata dosha in Aamasya, which seems as increase in appetite and patient starts to take more diet. But this increase in agni is false (mithyagni) and more diets intake will obstruct more microchannels. Obstruction of microchannels will ultimately decrease the gastric enzyme secretion for digestion and decreases the transformation of energy (Dhatwagni mandhya). Continuous feeding from fatty food or Snigdha and Guru Aahar may build up the rock of adipose tissue or lipids in blood. In Ayurveda classics there is no such term like dyslipidemia is described but the property of such lipids is closely resemble with the properties of sneha dravya like medo dhatu in Ayurveda. There are various etiological factors like excessive food intake, day sleep, sedentary life style, excessive happy state of mind and hereditary involvement leads to medoroga (Dyslipidemia/Obesity). Guggulu (Gum of Cammiphora mukul) and Rasona (Garlic) are known hypolipidemic medicine. Rasonadi Guggulu, The combination of both with several other medicines and process as documented in Ayurveda literature are yet to be unknown. This study is to evaluate the action of Rasonadi Guggulu with special reference to Medoroga (Dyslipidemia/ Obesity).
