Leucorrhoea is a universal condition experienced by women of all ages.
Excessive discharge of a white sticky foul smelling jelly like substance from vagina is called leucorrhoea. It is associated with itching in the genital area and burning micturition. It is known as “sweta pradara” in Ayurveda which involves mainly the Kapha and Vata dosha. Similar conditions have been mentioned in’ kaphaja yoni roga ‘and ‘upapluta yoni roga’ (types of genital tract diseases)
The Major Culprits of Leucorrhoea
Infection of genital tract
Lack of nutrition
Impaired immune function
Excessive intake of oily, heavy, cold, sweet food
Over indulgence in sexual activity
Pathogenesis According to Ayurveda
Due to the above mentioned causes, kapha dosha aggravates in the place of apaana vata (a type of vata dosha which is responsible for the proper elimination of waste, sexual function, child birth, and menstrual cycles). This impairs the rasa dhatvagni (nutrient plasma) present in vaginal tract leading to painless white discharge.
Ø Ayurvedic treatment consists of restoring the Agni (digestive fire) in order to cleanse the accumulated toxins and bring kapha dosha back to normalcy.
Ø To tone the reproductive system, rejuvenating herbs are also prescribed.
