Cancer AyurTalk Series Part -III

Definition, Hypothesis, Epidemiology and Prognosis of Arbhudha:

A New definition of cancer (arbhudha) has been reported in 1998 at the World Ayurveda Congress (Jacob 1998). Arbhudha can be defined as a deficiency syndrome expressed as allergic manifestation wherein predisposing complaints of impure V, P, K Rektha, Mamsa, Medhasa develop primarily benign and painless spherical or deep rooted plaques. This gradually spread and form excruciating pain

This hypothesis is expressed mathematically taking consideration of nidhana, poorva rupa, rupa, upasaya and samprapti of the disease.

To arrive at the above hypothesis four main aspects have been considered. They are

ie: IMBA α 1/BMA
ie: IMBA = k/BMA
ie: Where k is the balancing constant Therefore k is a function of IMBA
k/BMA…….(primary stage-Poorva rupa)
k’/BMA…..(Secondary stage-Rupa)
k’’/BMA….(Advanced stage-Upasaya and samprapti)

Therefore the prognosis of the disease can be expressed as follows.

Normal Stage Stage I Stage II Stage III
 PoorvarupaRupaUpasaya Samprathi (Advanced Stage)

Immunologically all normal individuals have sufficiency of all factors needed to fight against allergenicity and all the maladoshas are excreted very clearly.

In cancer patients are insufficient of factors to fight against allergencity and Maladhoshas are not excreted properly.

In primary stage patients the body acts defensively against the allergencity in the form of elevated temperature, gas, high density fluids and maladhoshas are excreted through urine, Sweat and stool.

All Cancer patients are allergic to any one of the materials or more like drugs, chemicals, radiation, food items, microbes etc and develop allergencity (Maladhoshas) and the disease prognosis. From Stage I to III.
