Abstract

According to the Principle of Ashraya - Ashrayee Bhava by Acharya Vagbhata, when Vata increases, Asthi Dhatu decreases because Vata and Asthi are inversely proportional to each other. In starting stage Asthi Kshaya can be taken as Lakshana, but when it gets Sthana Samraya in Asthi Dhatu, its progress can be taken as Vyadhi. The clinical features of Asthi Kshaya are Asthishula, Rukshata , Asthitoda , Sandhi Shaithilya, Keshaya, Loma, Nakha, Danta vikara & Paatana, Sadana and Shrama . Asthi Kshaya is a condition where there is decrease in the bone tissue and Asthi Soushirya means Porosity of bone. Hemadri has commented on the word Soushirya as ‘Sarandhratvam’ which means with pores.
