A little write up for the lovers of classical Ayurvedic text about Amenorrhea. Hopefully this will be interesting for the students of Ayurveda.
If you are you looking to deepen your understanding of Ayurveda in a practical and clinical setting you might like to read about the mentoring program offered at Lakshmi Ayurveda starting in February 2020.
In Ayurveda Amenorrhea is called (a Sanskrit word) Arajaska by Charaka and Lohitaksaya by Vagbhata.
Lohita is the synonym for rakta (blood). Lohita (Blood) + kshaya (decrease) = loss of blood
Meaning of Arajask is, Na + Rjaska = No menstrutation/ absence of menstruation.
