Research over the past four decades has consistently shown the burden of Dyslipidemia to be very high in terms of morbidity, mortality and medical costs. The World Health Organisation estimates that Dyslipidemia is associated with more than half of global cases of IHD and more than 4 million deaths per year. In Ayurveda Dyslipidemia can be compared to Medoroga (Lipid disorders) which is Santarpanotha Vyadhi (Disease due to over nutrition) and Vamana karma (Therapeutic emesis) is the preferred line of management. Vamanakarma is the best therapy for the elimination of Kapha Dosha and related morbid factors. As Medodhatu (fatty tissues) is one of the substance belonging to the category of Kapha, in this trial Vamana Karma is selected for the treatment of Dyslipidemia. Kutaja Beeja churna (powdered seeds of Holarrena antidysentrica) is selected for Vamana karma which is indicated mainly in Kapha diseases, Hridroga (Heart diseases) and similar condition arising out of excessive Kapha and Meda. Therefore it has been selected for Vamana Karma in 15 patients. After Vamana Karma, in the follow-up Lekhaneeya Ghana Vati was given for 45 days. The results of the trial were highly significant in reducing lipid levels.
