(kamala of pitta
पाण्डुरोगी तु योऽत्यर्थं पपत्तऱानि निषेवते| तस्य
पपत्तमसृगमाांसां दग्वा रोगाय कल्पते||३४||
This type of Kamala is supposed to be a stage
ahead of Pandu. If a patient of Pandu
roga excessively follows pitta vitiating diet and
regimen, the pitta so aggravated by involving
the rakta and the mamsa causes kamala
specifically kostha-shakhashrit kamala
हाररद्रिेत्र् स भृशां हाररद्रत्वङ्िखािि्| रक्तपीतशकृ न्मूत्रो
दाहापवपाकदौबबल्यसदिारुचिकपषबत्| कामऱा बहुपपत्तैषा
Its clinical features are the eyes, skin, nails and face of
the patient become exceedingly yellow; stool and urine
become reddish-yellow in color; complexion develops
a color similar to that of a frog (found in rainy season);
the senses get impaired; has burning sensation,
indigestion, weakness, prostration and anorexia.
This kamala is caused by excess of pitta is known
“सांशो्यो मृदुभभन्द्स्तक्तै् कामऱी तु
The treatment of kostha-shakhashrit
kamala is somewhat planned as an
aggravated stage of piitaja pandu, as
this type of kamala has a preoccupied
condition of pandu underneath its
pathology and on consuming pitta
vardhaka aahara and vihara kostha-
shakhashrit kamala precipitates.
(kamala of obstructive
The passage of pitta is obstructed by
vitiated kapha and not allowing pitta to enter kostha,
it will cause excess of pitta in body tissues
in Shakhasrita Kamala. This involves the obstructive
pathologies at hepatic circulation. As the pitta cannot
enter the gastro-intestinal tract, it leads to clay colored
stools. In obstructive jaundice, bilirubin has no access
to the intestine and it is the reason for pale stools.
Katu (pungent), teekshna (sharp), ushna (hot),
lavana (saline) and extremely amla (sour) drugs
should be continued till the stool of the patient
acquires the color of pitta and the vata gets
alleviated. When the pitta returns to its own
habitat, the stool gets colored with pitta and the
patient is relieved of complications, then
further, the line of treatment described earlier
for the treatment of kamala (koshthashrita)
should be used.
