The literary study was carried out on the Chapter 15 of the Sutra Sthana namely the Doshadhatumalakshayavriddhivijnaniya Adhyaya of the Sushruta Samhita followed with the study of the applied aspect of one of the principles mentioned in the chapter. Thus, an effort had been made to prove the validity of the principle of the Dhatu Poshana. The patients with the complaint of the Rakta Kshaya as per the classics like the desire for the sour and cool substances, weakness et al were given the drug, Shatavari, Asparagus racemosa which was prepared in the Ksheerapaka form in appropriate dosage. This was designed so as to assess the effect of Rasa Vriddhi (Due to the drug which is well known to increase the rasa Dhatu) on the Rakta. To compare the efficacy the Standard control group consisting of the Nξra Siddha Ksheera (Milk prepared with water) was also made. The study showed good relief in the signs & symptoms of the disease. However, an improving trend was conspicuously seen in the laboratory/ objective parameters.
