Ayurveda teaches that health is maintained by the balance of three subtle energies, known as vata, pitta and kapha, and these three doshas are also responsible for illness of human being when they are in imbalanced condition. As each individual has its own particular balance of these three forces called as Prakruti or constitution, Ayurvedic treatments are specific to every individual. Such an approach has proven effective over the centuries and as a result, these healing regimens are becoming more and more popular all over the world. The aggravated doshas which are hiding in the cells do not come out easily, by the simple treatment. Such vitiated doshas also don’t allow the various effective and good medicines to act on the body tissues because of the obstructive phenomena. Hence, it becomes absolutely necessary to remove them by some special process from the body. This is known as Panchakarma. Hence we have undertaken this study for analysis of patients coming to Panchkarma O.P.D. The study was conducted on patients coming to panchakarma O.P.D.from April 2013 to Aug 2013. The statistical analysis showed that more patients were found between the age group of 20-40 years that is 58.89 %.maximum patients were male that is 57.45%, more patients from urban that is 81.42%, disease wise distribution shows maximum patients were of vatavyadhi that is 55.06% and G.I.T that is 30.45%. to overcome these problems, there is a strong need to create awareness to follow the rules of DINACHARYA and RITUCHARYA as advised by ayurveda. This also highlights effectiveness of Panchkarma more in vatavyadhi.
