Dr. Jivesh Kumar Mehta*, Dr. Shaheen Pinjari and Dr. Nikunj Thakkar

ABSTRACT

Vitamin B12 consists of a class of chemically related compounds (Vitamers), all of which show pharmacological activity. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common but under-recognized, yet easily treatable disorder in older adults. Causes of deficiency include failure to separate Vitamin B12 from food protein, inadequate ingestion, absorption, utilization, and storage as well as drug-food interactions leading to malabsorption and metabolic inactivation. Ayurveda The diseases are categorized into two due to Santarpana (increased nutrition) and Aptarpana (decreased nutrition). The Aptarpanotha diseases involves manifestations like fever, anorexia, papatations, body pain, joints pain. Aptarpana causes Dhatu kshaya which further leads to Sneha kshaya & Vata prakopa causing vata vyadhi. Role of Vata is indispensible as the entire nervous system is under the control of vata. Though the role of Vata is found at large in peripheral neuropathy, the role of Pitta and Kapha cannot be neglected as it is said that all diseases are Tridoshaja according to Ayurveda.
