Abstract

ANTI-OBESITY DRUGS OF KAIDEVA NIGHANTU: A LITERARY SURVEY

*Dr. Premraj Chaudhary, Dr. Pallavi Singh and Dr. B. Kothainayagi

ABSTRACT

Obesity is a blessing of the modern age of machines and materialism. Globally, there are more than one billion overweight adults out of them more than 300 million are clinically obese. Individual habits with stressful life, wrong dietary habits and sedentary life is the main cause of disease. In modern medicine it is managed by dietary control, behavioral modification, drug therapy and surgery yet the success of treatment is not satisfactory. Ayurveda deals this disease as sthoulya (obesity) under medoroga (adipose tissue disorder). The present study is designed to screen the drugs with Kaphamedohara, Medorogahara, Sthoulyanashaka and Karshyakara properties from Kaideva Nighantu since the drugs with these actions are principle elements of obesity treatment. It is found that Kaideva Nighantu provides us a great knowledge not only about the anti-obesity drugs (Aushadha) but also tells us the pathya anna and pathya vihara to be followed in obesity.

Keywords: Obesity, Sthoulya, Kaphamedohara, Kaideva nighantu.
