Discussion: In this study it was concluded that there nidana, the foremost component of Nidana Panchaka, not only gives the knowledge of causative factors of a disease but also helps in treatment by avoiding them. Acharya Shushrut mentioned that Nidana Parivarjana (avoidance of causative factors) is the basis of Cikitsa. Since, the prevention of occurrence of disease is simple rather than treating the patient after developing disease.
