Abstract

The Shaddhatu Purusha treatment is undertaken for a human being to regain the harmonious balance within the system, the sum total of body, mind and soul is considered and taken as a unit. It is the study to analyse where the root of the disease lies; which can be in the body Shareera, the mind (Manas) or the soul (Karana Shareera). For the study and analysis, the literature related to the Chikitsa (treatment) Bheda (types of treatment), Chikitsa (treatment) Vyakhya (explanation of treatment), TriGuna's (the three fundamental features of nature), Nityas, concept of microcosm-macrocosm relation are being taken from various classical Ayurvedic texts. The Shaddhatu Purush Chikitsa (treatment) is kind of spiritual treatment, where the doctor is campable of alteration in the subtle and super-conscious body of patient along with the physical body. In Shaddhatu Purush Chikitsa (treatment) it is believed that the disease is the resultant of some Past Karma which can be balanced by balancing the Panch-Bhuta’s and Tri-Guna’s.
