dc.description.abstractA study with an Ayurveda regimen consisting of Navaka guggulu, Sthaulyahara kashayam, a diet pattern and walk exercise for a treatment period of 3 mandalams (120 days) in medoroga was conducted to probe the efficacy and safety aspects of the regimen. 71 patients of medoroga were recruited for the study, and 34 patients formed the sample conforming to certain inclusion and exclusion criteria. Assessment of efficacy at the end of the 120-day treatment period vis-à-vis baseline was done using a self-designed proforma considering the symptoms in accordance with the Ayurvedic system and the physical parameters chest (uras) circumference, abdomen (udara) circumference and hip (sphik) circumference as enunciated in the classical texts. Certain hepatic and renal function tests were done to examine the safety profile of the treatment regimen. At the end of the treatment period, noteworthy symptomatic improvement was found in the patients; statistically significant (p<0.001) reduction in the physical parameters was noticed; and values of the hepatic and renal parameters remained in their respective normal ranges. No side effects were reported by the patients over the treatment period. The study is affirmative of the efficacy and safety of the Ayurvedic treatment regimen when administered for a period of 120 days to patients of medoroga. The importance of doing exercise in addition to intake of the medicines and a diet pattern in medoroga is emphasized.en_US
