Abstract

Apasmara is a disease entity described in all classics of Ayurveda with significant importance and it has been described among the Maharoga. Apasmara has striking similarities with epilepsy and has an incidence of 5-10 per every 1000 persons. It has the dubious distinction of affecting all the walks of life of an individual suffering from the disease. It is one of the disease which affects both Shareera and Manas. Both Shareerika Doshas i.e., Vata, Pitta and Kapha as well as Manasika Doshas i.e., Rajas and Tamas plays equal role in the manifestation of disease Apasmara. The factors responsible for the susceptibility to the disease have been emphasised giving them prime importance. The mutual dependence and involvement of Shareerika and Manasika Doshas are highlighted revealing the intricate nature of the Samprapti. Shatkriyakala is the process of understanding the pathogenesis of disease in consecutive stages. So here an attempt has been made to understand and highlight the Samprapti of Apasmara based on the stages of Shatkriyakala.
