ABSTRACT
Madatyaya refers to group of disorders caused due to improper & excessive consumption of alcohol. It is a Saanipataja Vyadhi (caused by vitiation of all three Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha). It mainly vitiates Ojas, as Madya (alcohol) have opposite quality of Ojas. Chronic alcoholism leads to excessive accumulation of morbid Dosha, which need to be expelled out from nearest route by specific Panchakarma. Hence they may need careful usage of Panchakarma (five specific therapies). Selection of Panchakarma (Vamana, Virechana, Anuvasana Basti, Niruha Basti and Nasya) are based on key factors like Dosha, Dushya, Bala, Kala, Prakriti, Agni, Vaya, Satva, Satmya and Roga Avastha. This paper is focused on five key points regarding selection of appropriate Panchakarma in Madatyaya. Each Panchakarma are discussed under heading of brief description, indication, contra indication, benefits and special precautions & observation based on the available references in Ayurvedic texts & clinical experiences of the authors in the management of Madatyaya.
