Ayurvedic Perspective of Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome


Good deeds and a good diet is what makes a man healthy. Lifestyle or way of living of a person is what makes his life healthy or unhealthy. In the past, people used to work hard physically but today technology has left us with only mental work, physical efforts and physical exertion has reached the minimum. Furthermore, junk food and contaminated food with a number of chemicals has added to the problems of a common man. This contaminated and junk food has led to a number of health issues. Syndrome X or Metabolic syndrome is a bunch of some health issues that can give rise to serious health problems. In the text below, we shall discuss Syndrome X (Metabolic Syndrome) in detail and its management in the contemporary system of medicine and in the traditional system of medicine as well. Let’s discuss!!


Syndrome X is a bunch of health conditions related to resistance to insulin that include fat accumulation in the body, obesity, dyslipidemia and hypertension. In other words, it can be said that it is a cluster of conditions that makes a person vulnerable to diabetes and heart disease. So metabolic syndrome is not a disorder itself but a group of risk factors. A person can be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome when she/he has three or more than that from the following:

Metabolic Syndrome

  1. Dyslipidemia
  2. Hypertension (increased blood pressure)
  3. Accumulation of fat at waist
  4. Decreased levels of good cholesterol (LDL)
  5. Increased blood sugar levels

Moreover, metabolic syndrome can build up plaque in the arteries which causes the clogging of the same which makes the arteries brittle. Formation of blood clots after damage to the arterial wall may block the major arteries which can result in stroke or heart attack.

Causes of Syndrome X

  1. Insulin resistance
  2. Obesity
  3. Unhealthy lifestyle
  4. Hormonal imbalance
  5. Smoking

Risk Factors

  1. Obese person
  2. Risk increases with as the age increases
  3. Sedentary lifestyle
  4. People with diabetes mellitus type 2 are prone to develop metabolic syndrome
  5. People with Polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypertension, alcoholic fatty liver and dyslipidemia are vulnerable to Syndrome X.

Prevention of Metabolic Syndrome

  2. Doing meditation, yoga, pranayama etc helps in stress.
  3. Healthy diet and lifestyle management is necessary to be modulated.

Ayurvedic Aspect and Management of Syndrome X

Ayurveda, the traditional system of Indian medicine, has been serving mankind till date. Ayurveda is a natural science that manages the conditions purely on the herbal and mineral formulations. And it has marvellous results. It manages the dosha imbalance that is the main cause of diseases. There are various causes of development of a condition which includes sroto dushti, dosha imbalance, agnimandya etc. Metabolic Syndrome is related to sroto dushti. In every condition with the faulty dietary habits the doshas get vitiated mainly the kapha dosha and the ama formation leads to the clogging of the microchannels which is regarded as sroto dushti.

Vata dosha is responsible for the movements in the body as the sroto dushti occurs or the blockage of the microchannels occurs the movement of the vata gets hampered which gives the sign of kapha avaran. So the correlation of the metabolic syndrome can be well established with the sroto dushti by the kapha dosha. Ayurvedic management depends on the cleansing or unclogging or unblocking of the microchannels from the ama and vikrit kapha which has hampered the vata movements. So here we require the medicines that remove the ama and excessive kapha from the body that eventually will result in clear microchannels. Medicines such as arogyavardhini vati, chyawanprash, sanjivani vati etc are really helpful in metabolic syndrome.

Guggulu (Comminphora mukul), shilajit (asphaltum), vacha (Acorus calamus), neem (Azadirachta indica), amla (Embellica officinale) and various other herbs are effective in removing the sroto dushti  y cleansing the microchannels. Thus this all will help in Metabolic syndrome to the maximum.
