Bhumi Desha refers to the natural inhabitant of an individual. It has a major role in examination of disease as well as a diseased person. In the present era extensive research throws light on the influence of Bhumi Desha in its inhabitants, as the study has been explored even up to the molecular level of a person. Even though its importance has been clearly specified in Pareekshyabhavas (factors to be examined), a thorough understanding of this concept in Swastha (healthy) and Vyaditha (diseased) perspective is inevitable in the present scenario. Thus Desha has to be analyzed in a diseased person in order to determine the Nidana (causative factors) of a disease and to decide Chikitsa (treatment) which is opposite to the qualities of the Desha, and in a healthy person it helps to excavate the wholesome Ahara and Vihara.
