I don't know Sukumar and Shashirekha’s work, but the passage appears in all
the standard translations of the Carakasaṃhitā, e.g., Priya Vrat
Sharma. *Caraka-Saṃhitā:
Agniveśa’s Treatise Refined and Annoted by Caraka and Redacted by Dṛḍhabala
(Text with English Translation)*. The Jaikrishnadas Ayurveda Series. 1 ed.
(Varanasi, Delhi: Chaukhambha Orientalia, 1981/1994).
