Background: The conventional concept of etiopathogenesis, prognosis, and management of obesity is very similar and equally advanced to the Medoroga/Sthaulyaroga of Ayurveda, which was conceived in 1500 BC by Acharya Charaka. Overweight or obesity is mostly found in people with predominantly Kapha-type constitutions. According to Acharya Charak, apart from the genetic factors, diet (like shleshmakar, abhishayandi) & lifestyle (like avyayam, divaswapna) are the main contributing factors in the aetiopathogenesis of Medoroga. As per previous study Lekhana Basti was found to have moderate results in obesity. Pippalyadi has Chitraka and Pippali in addition to the other components of Lekahan basti so could have better results in correcting the vitiated Agni. Therefore, Pippalyadi basti is chosen for the current study. Objectives: • To evaluate efficacy of Pippalyadi Basti in the management of Medoroga. • To compare the efficacy with Lekhana Basti • Conceptual study of Medoroga in Ayurvedic texts and Obesity in modern medicine. • Effect of Pippalyadi Basti & Lekhan Basti on B.M.I. Methodology: D.Y. Patil Ayurved Hospital, Samhitas & modern books of medicine, Pharmacy attached to college for the preparations of the drugs, international & national medical journals and magazines, OPD, IPD , Labs , other provisions of the hospitals will be availed to do this intended work. Expected Results: Changes will be observed in objective outcomes. Conclusion: Conclusion will be drawn by suitably analyzing data.
