Abstract

Menopause is the stage which comes in every woman’s life. This causes many changes in her day to day life. The condition occurs due degenerative changes at the middle  age from 40-55 yrs of age group. In recent years according to lifestyle changes early menopause is also seen. The current available treatment modalities have their own side effects which further depletes the already disturbed endocrine system. Though it is Anukta vyadhi it has its root in Tridoshas, Dhatu and Mala. A diagnostic survey study was designed to evaluate Dosha, Dhatu , Mala and Menopausal symptoms with help of Ayurvedic case paper. 75 woman (from Pune) and 75 woman (from periphery of Pune) were interviewed for a comparative study. Lifestyle is responsible for Tridosha, Rasa-Rakta Dushti and Aartav Dushti. Vata is responsible for Samprapti of menopausal syndrome by Avarodha, Dhatuykshaya , Ashaya Apakarsha gati. Pitta is responsible due to Atisaran/ Shushkata due to Ushna guna and Ashaya Apakarsha gati. Kapha is responsible due to Avarodha of Srotas. Rural and urban women both are equally suffering from menopausal syndrome due to incorrect Ahara-Vihar and Lifestyle and Dosha-Dhatu Vikruti.
