Vata is responsible for all the Chesta, particularly of the Indriyas i.e., DashaIndriya and Mana. Vata has significant role in regulation of physical and psychological equations and in Klaibya, Vata stands in prime position. The chief factors causing the condition Klaibya are Vata, Sattva, Dhatukshaya in general and Shukra Kshaya in particular, Shukravaha Srotodushti and Marmabhighata. Considering the various factors involved in the pathogenesis of Klaibya, specifically the aggravated Vata causing stimulation and lack of control of Manasa, Matra Basti was selected. Medhya Rasayana was selected for its availability and having their definite action over central nervous system and higher mental functions. The selected drugs do not have any direct effect on Shukravaha Srotas. To see the effect of Manosamvardhana Chikitsa, Placebo was also given to the patients.
