Acaryas lay emphasis on the significance of the Pancamahabhutas in understanding Shareera when they state their involvement from conception to death i.e. from the four Bhutas which enter Garbha1, the Pancabhautika Prakriti2, the Saddhatvatmaka Purusha3 termed as Cikitsadhikrita Purusha to the Pancabhautikatva of indriyas4, till death quoted as Pancatvagatam5, each of the above references show a special relevance to Mahabhutas. An attempt is made in this study to evaluate the utility and applicability of this principle of Pancamahabhutas in day to day practice. There are enough evidences in the treatises to prove that these Pancamahabhutas and the phenomenon of Panceekarana6 mentioned in terms of Samyoga dharmas7 was used to understand and treat diseases. In support of the above concept a study on the patients of Santarpanottha Prameha has been carried out by dividing them in two groups, Group A & Group B. Here the drugs were selected on the basis of the hypothesis that the vitiated gunas of one particular group of Mahabhutas can be countered with the administration of dravyas having opposite Mahabhautika guna dominancy8, i.e. Akasha, Vayu, Prithvi, or Agni. In Group A - Triphaladi Yoga was administered. In Group B - Citraka Curna was given9. The result was assessed after six weeks with the help of a specially prepared Proforma. All the important haematological, Biochemical & Urine investigations were done. Symptomatically significant results were found in Group A as compared to Group B.
