Role of Ayurvedic remedies in management of Dyslipidemia – A Case Report
A 60 years old male patient presented with complaints of lethargy, unwillingness towards performing daily activities and easy fatigability since 4 years. During a routine medical checkup, he was diagnosed with hyperlipidemia and hyperuricemia. Dyslipidemia is an abnormal derangement of lipids in the blood and is found in many conditions including Diabetes Mellitus, Hyperthyroidism and Hypertension. In Ayurveda, it can be correlated with Medovaha Stroto Dushti (vitiation of channels carrying fat tissue), management of which follows the treatment principles of Medo Roga (disorders of fat tissue). The patient was treated on Kapha-meda Nashak Chikitsa using combination of Shodhana Chikitsa ( purification therapy) followed by Shamana Chikitsa (palliative therapy) using Arogyavardhini Vati and Mustadi kwatha and diet and life style modifications for 7 months. After the course of treatment, lipid profile and kidney profile was done. There was significant improvement in the biochemical parameters, indicating that dyslipidemia can be effectively treated with Ayurvedic interventions.
