Dashvidhparikshya bhav is a concept which is described by Acharya Vagbhat for confirmatory diagnosis of any disease. Dashvidhparikshyabhav includes Dushya, Desh, Bal, Kal, Analah, Prakriti, Vayah, Satwa, Satmya and Ahara. These parikshyabhav helps to diagnosis and break the samprati of disease by taking specific action and treatment. This concept can apply in any disease diagnosis and treatment. Hypertension is a dreadful disease which is multifactorial in it’s origin with a chronic aetio-pathogenesis when thought adapting the principle of Dosh-Dhatu-Mala theory. The pathology seems to be centered on Shonit Dhatu and Tridosh, so it fall in Madhyam Rogmarg(intermediate route) and hence it is Yapya disease(difficult to cure).
