  • Abstract

    The clinical examination of a patient is the preliminary subject of medicine which is also available in a very illustrative form in the classical texts of Ayurveda. The modern advancement in pathological approach to disease is gradually replacing the extensive clinical method comprising medical history, clinical examination, and ancillary investigation followed by an assessment of strength of the body as well as diseases to generate systemic approach for the management of any diseases. These approaches indicate that each individual is unique and independent in terms of physical and physiological characteristics. Charakokta Dashavidha and Sushrutokkta dwadashavidha are the two approaches described to assess the strength of the patient and disease. The word Sara means “Sara Shabdena Vishuddhataro Dhatur Ucyate” which means that Sara in real sense is the essence or excellent proportion present in respective dhatus in the form of super quality; as a result, it provides strength (physical power, mental power as well as power of resistance against the diseases) and stability to the body. The Sara Pariksha is important because external appearances of plumpness and robustness may at times be misleading. While some people are looking lean and emaciated may actually be strong from within, hence one should not jump to the conclusion by seeing the outer appearance of an individual. Those looking hale and hearty may be disease prone due to inherent weakness in their Dhatu composition
