In Hinduism

Ayurveda (science of life)

Source: National Mission for Manuscripts: Traditional Medicine System in India

Rogī (रोगी) or Rogin refers to a “patient” and represents one of the four pādas or factors to make a treatment perfect.—The Ayurvedic system says that the body (śarīra) is also pañcabhautika and the medicines i.e. plants and animals are also pañcabhautika. So the pañcabhautika-śarīra can be treated with pañcabhautika drug. [...] The four pādas or factors to make a treatment perfect are: 1. Bhiṣak: Vaidya-doctor 2. Dravya: drugs 3. Paricāraka: bystander/helper and 4. Rogī: Patient.—If these four pādas perfectly merge the treatment will be a success.
