Abstract

Metabolic Syndrome is a constellation of several factors like hyperglycemia, raised blood pressure, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and central obesity. Among these factors central obesity & insulin resistance are the dominant parameters of this collection. In today’s era its prevalence is rising rapidly and it has a high socioeconomic burden. Being the major risk factor for Cardio Vascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, it is the need of the hour to find a safe and cost effective remedy for Metabolic Syndrome. Santarpana Nimittaj Vikara in Ayurvedic Classics can be correlated to Metabolic Syndrome and Virechana Karma is an effective measure which helps in cleansing congested Strotas and removing vitiated Dosha hence pacifying the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome. Patients of either sex in the age group of 20 to 60 years, fulfilling the study criteria were included in the study. Two sittings of Virechana Karma were administered with 15 day gap in between. Highly significant in all criteria except Blood sugar fasting. Conclusion: Virechana Karma is an ideal therapy for Metabolic Syndrome.
