Ayurveda is the science of life. The definition of Swastha is equilibrium state of Dosha, Dhatu, Agni, Mala along with Prasanna Atma, Mana, Indriyas. The reason for disease to occur is Dhatu Vaishamyata. Pandu Roga is one among them which occurs due to Dhatu Vaishamyata.Pandu is described in almost all authentic Ayurvedic literatures. As the name denotes the main feature of Pandu Roga is Pandutva. According to Charaka, it is one among the RasavahaSrotodushti. Susruta has mentioned it as RaktavahaSrotodushti. Insufficient dietary intake and improper absorption of iron are the causes of Iron Deficiency Anemia which presents with the significant symptoms such as feeling of weakness, tiredness, shortness of breath, palpitations, Koilonychia, Glossitis, Dysphagia and altered sensation of taste. The modern management of Iron Deficiency Anaemia is to find out and treat the underlying cause and to give iron to correct the Anaemia. The best preparation of oral iron is Ferrous Sulphate 100mg twice daily. But this has adverse effect. Here is a novel approach for the management of Pandu (Iron Deficiency Anaemia) without using iron in any form. Selected compound consisting of ingredients Nimba, Daruharidra, Triphala, Trikatu, Hareetaki, Shilajith, Badara does not contain iron as an ingredient thus averting the adverse effect of oral iron therapy such as fatigue, loss of appetite, weakness, breathlessness and palpitation, particularly with physical exertion and pallor of the skin and the mucous membrane.
