Abstract

Healthy habits are the best way to avoid disease. But in the chaos of a woman’s daily life healthy living is not at all followed now a days. Along with overall health of a women vaginal health is also an important part. A healthy woman is a promise of a healthy life. Woman has to pass through different stages and phases of life in which physical and psychological changes occur. Also, she has to fulfil the dual responsibility at home as well at job. Hence, she needs perfect physical and psychological health. Safe, healthy and confident life is very much necessary, for that every woman needs a healthy yoni. An infection or change in the normal balance of vaginal yeast and bacteria can cause inflammation of the vagina. Shweta pradara is an annoying symptom which is present in many diseases or present a complication. Since Shweta Pradara is a symptom, not a disease, hence etiopathogenesis of principal disease would be etiopathogenesis of Shweta Pradara also. It can be said that it is a Kaphaja disorder in the region of Apana Vayu. Infections due to certain organisms in vagina and uterus also lead to white discharge. A female patient suffering from Shweta pradara was treated by Shamana chikitsa and Yoni prakshalana. She got excellent relief in symptoms by above treatment.
