‘Sukumara’ is a Sanskrit word that has specific implications in Ayurvedic literature. It denotes an individual who is delicate in constitution and sensitive to the rigors of daily life. In the present day, it can be equated with individuals who are accustomed to a sedentary life, not capable of complying to strict diet restrictions and medicine, and with a sensitive body constitution in general.
Ghrtas (medicated ghees) are combinations of fats and aqeous extract of medicinal plants. The medicinal active principles in the form of juices, decoctions and fresh ground paste of herbs and roots, are gradually infused into pure ghee at a stipulated temperature. The human body is accustomed to ‘ghrta’ or ghee by birth. For the same reason, therapeutic formulations based in ghee can be adminstered for long periods with sustained results.
