Tubal Block

Tubal blockage is one of the most important factors for female infertility. The present study is an effort to understand the disease according to Ayurvedic principles. Correlating fallopian tubes with the Artavavaha (Artava-bija-vaha) Srotas, its block is compared with the Sanga Srotodushti of this Srotas. Charak's opinion that the diseases are innumerable and newly discovered ones should be understood in terms of Prakriti, Adhishthana, Linga, and Aayatana, is followed, to describe this disease. An effort has been made to evaluate the role of all the three Doshas in producing blockage, with classification of the disease done as per the Dasha Roganika.

The anatomical description in Ayurvedic literature is different from modern medical science. The manner in which bodily organs are defined is based more upon the principles than the structures. Modern science is based on the Pratyaksha only, while Ayurveda does consider the Anumana as well as the Aaptopadesha, in addition to the Pratyaksha. The description of the anatomy varies from each other in both the sciences and one cannot find an equivocal reference for various anatomical structures like fallopian tubes. In Ayurveda, the anatomical description is gross and based on various principles like Srotasa, Dhatu, Marma, and so on. Srotasa is one of the most controversial points, but of course important too, as it is recognized as the structural and functional unit of the body. The term ‘Srotas,’ as used in Ayurvedic texts, depicts the dynamic and inner transport system of the body–mind spirit organization. The Srotovigyana encompasses all ranges of the structural and functional units from the grossest to the subtlest, designed to carry specific materials, molecules, messages, impulses, emotions, and thoughts under a unique holistic coordination in a unified field. Thus, the Srotas represents the unified field of pathways, gross and subtle, material and energetic. Such an approach of Ayurveda seems to have developed thousands of years ago, to allow the functioning of the life process on a quantum basis, which could not have been easy to practice through the reductionist approach of western medical science, which worked on the basic premise of dualities and divisions in consideration of the organ–tissue–cell–genome approach largely based on classical physics, which itself was getting ready to change.

Tubal Block According to Ayurveda

Fallopian tubes are the delicate passages in a woman’s reproductive system where egg meets sperm. They are literally the place where human life begins. Fallopian tubes can become blocked by adhesions (internal scars) that form when the body heals from an earlier surgery, infection, inflammation or trauma.

Like the strands of a nylon rope, adhesions bind structures together so they cannot function normally. Adhesions can cause blockage anywhere within one or both fallopian tubes. Adhesions, scarring and blocked fallopian tubes are primary causes of female infertility.
