Ayurveda - What Is Roga Marga?

 


    ROGAMARGAS - THE 3 PATHWAYS OF DISEASE.


    Ayurveda recognizes three illness pathways (rogamargas), or three different degrees of disease manifestation in the body. 




    Antarmarga



    The ‘inner route' or antarmarga, which includes the digestive and respiratory systems, is the initial illness pathway. 


    • Although it is referred to as the "inner route," it is really the most superficial level at which illness may appear, making it relatively simple to cure. 
    • Vomiting, gastritis, abdominal bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, piles, coughing, dyspnoea, and fever are examples of disorders that appear on this level. 
    • Internal treatments such as ingestion, inhalation, and enema are often used. 




    Bahya Roga Marga Or Rogayana



    The bahya rogayana, or "outside route," is made up of the circulatory, lymphatic, and integumentary systems and is the second illness pathway. 


    • The outer route of illness is more difficult to cure since diseases in this pathway may be regarded conditions in the inner pathway that have been pushed deeper, into the blood, lymph, and skin, from the stomach and respiratory mucosa. 
    • Eczema, acne, boils, psoriasis, granuloma, warts, enlarged lymph nodes, oedema, and vascular disease are examples of diseases on this level. 
    • Internal treatments are usually used in conjunction with external therapies like svedana (‘diaphoresis') to treat the bahya rogayana. 




    Madhyama Roga Marga 



    The madhyama rogamarga, or ‘middle route,' is comprised of deeper, more difficult-to-reach tissues such as the neurological and endocrine systems, kidneys, heart, bones, and muscles. 


    • It is the deepest level at which an illness may show itself, and it is also the most difficult to cure.
    • The'middle route' is so named because it is wedged between the other two levels, making it difficult to reach. 
    • Paralysis, mental problems, seizures, wasting, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, renal failure, and heart disease are examples of diseases on this level. 
    • In most cases, a mix of internal and topical treatments is needed.
