PANCHBHAUTIC CONSTITUTION OF RAKTA DHATU WITH RESPECT TO AGE- AN ANALYTICAL STUDY
Keywords:ESR, Evaporation Rate, Hb%, Optical density, Panchmahabhoot, Rakta Dhatu, RBC count, Specific gravity, Surface tension, TLC
Ayurveda the ancient science of life is based upon certain principles like Panchmahabhoot theory which states that every bhav padarth in the universe and hence Rakta Dhatu in human body is also composed from Panchmahabhootas. The aim of this study was to examine changes in the panchbhautik composition of Rakta Dhatu in different age groups and establish bio physical, biochemical and microscopic parameters for the evaluation of Panchbhautik composition of Rakta Dhatu. Five bio-physical ,one Bio-chemical and two microscopic parameters were selected which were correlated to the bio-physical and bio-chemical properties of Rakta Dhatu. The observations in this study were done by the examination of blood samples of 63 persons each 21 in Bal (Children), Tarun (Adult /Middle Aged), Vriddha (Old Aged) of which 7 of Vata , 7Pitta and 7Kapha Prakriti respectively. Every blood sample was evaluated for Sp. gravity, Surface tension, Optical density, Evaporation Rate, ESR, Hb%, RBC count, TLC. The study reveals that Sp. Gravity and ESR can be considered as parameters for Prithvi and Akash mahabhoot in blood. Optical Density and Hb% can be considered as parameters for Tej mahabhoot.
