Since anaemia is characterized by whitish tint on the skin, so In Sanskrit 'panduta' means whitish colouration eyes & nails, it is called Pandurog in Ayurveda. It is caused by improper diet, weak gastric fire, malnutrition, worms, loss of blood and eating soil. All such factors cause the production of ama (toxins) in stomach which then blocks the channels of rasa dhatu. This results in paleness and other symptoms of pandurog. Depending upon which particular Dosha is vitiated, pandurog has been classified into Vataj, Pittaj, Kaphaj and Sannipatik types in Ayurveda. Vatajpandurog is marked by pale, blackish, dry skin, body ache and constipation. Pittajpandurog causes pale, yellowish skin, fever, giddiness, thirst, excess sweating and sour belching. Kaphajpandurog displays itself through pale, whitish skin, heaviness & swelling in body, vomiting, and breathlessness. Treatment for anemia includes, helping the digestive tract to properly convert the food into rasa to raktha and purifies the rakthadhathu.
