Tridoṣodara (त्रिदोषोदर) (also Dūṣyodora) refers to “stomach affected by an abnormal excess of the three doshas” and represents one of the eight types of udararoga (“diseases affecting the belly”) according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 6). Accordingly, “[...] Tridosha-udara is much increased in a chilly and stormy weather and causes inflammation in the affected region, making the patient anemic, thin, with his throat dry with thirst, and leading to the loss of his consciousness every now and then”.
