Ayurveda, hailed as the oldest healing tradition, advocates proactive health maintenance and disease prevention. By promoting balance and harmony within the body, it addresses various ailments, including skin conditions like Vyanga, which can be correlated to Melasma (hyperpigmentation). Vyanga, categorized as a Kshudraroga (minor ailment), manifests as dark discoloration of the skin mostly over the face, occasionally on neck area and rarely in forearms and is commonly observed among women. It produces basic features like Niruja (painless), Tanu (thin) and Shyavavarna mandalas (bluish black colour patches). Ayurvedic texts provide detailed descriptions of Vyanga's symptoms and treatment modalities. These may include therapies like Raktamokshana (bloodletting), Lepa (external applications), Abhyanga (massage), and oral medications. Lepana therapies detailed in the Bhavaprakasha Samhita offer cost-effective, side-effect-free alternatives to expensive conventional treatments, fostering both physical and psychological wellness in patients.
