Vatarakta' is a one type of Vatavyadhi, which is caused due to vitiated Vata and Rakta. The main pathology of the disease is Marga – Avaradh (Obstruction of channels). Here Vata and Rakta are aggravated and vitiated by their etiological factors and ultimately Vayu gets obstructed by vitiated Rakta. This complete process is known as Vatarakta. The etiological reactions and symptomatology of gout is very much similar to Vatarakta. Gout is caused due to deposition of mono sodium urate crystals in joints and surrounding tissues. It is characterized by acute pain, swollen joints, tenderness and stiffness of mainly small joints (metatarsophalangeal joints). Increased serum uric acid level is hallmark of the disease. It is very common disease prevailing in today’s era. In the present clinical study, 40 patients fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of Vatarakta were selected randomly from the O.P.D & I.P.D of Gurukul Campus, U.A.U, Haridwar and were randomly divided into two groups (20 patients in each). Out of which 3 patients went to LAMA. Group A was treated with Yashtyadi Niruha Vasti which was given in schedule for 2 courses of 10 days and with a gap of 7 days. Group B was given Kaishore Guggulu 500 mg BD for 30 days. The therapeutic effect of the treatment was assessed in both the groups based on both sign & symptoms and laboratory investigations. In Group A 10 patients showed moderate improvement (58.82%), 5 patients showed marked relief (29.41%), and 2 patients showed complete relief (11.76%). In Group B, 8 patients showed marked relief (40%), 7 patients showed moderate relief (35%), 3 patients showed complete relief (15%) and 2 patients showed mild relief (10%). Both the groups showed good effect by reducing the sign and symptoms of Vatarakta and reducing serum uric acid. Yashtyadi Niruha Vasti reveals encouraging results then Kaishore Guggulu by providing relief in symptoms of Vatarakta, and by reducing the serum uric acid level significantly

A wound which refuses to heal or heals very slowly inspite of best efforts is known as Dushta Vrana. Advance technologies and medicare system are still unsatisfactory in the process of healing and bringing down the aggravated clinical problems of an ulcer. Aacharya Sushruta has given the prime position to‘‘Wound, i.e.Vrana’’. To achieve good approximation, early healing and acceptable scar, without complications Acharya Sushruta has elaborately explained Shashti Upakrama. Among them Raktamokshana & Vrana Shodhana and Ropana are there. However Sushruta has specifically indicated Raktamokshna in Dushta Vrana treatment and Acharya Sharangdhara explained Shodhana Ropana Lepa in the management of Dushta Vrana. So the present study is planned to evaluate the efficacy of Shodhana Ropana Lepa over leech therapy as leech therapy was taken as controlled comparator. For the present study 30 patients fulfilling the inclusive criteria were selected. The patients were classified into two groups,Group A and Group B, each containing 15 patients. ‘Group A’ was taken as control comparator group on which Jalaukavacharana was done and ‘Group B’ was taken as experimental group in which application of Shodhana Ropana Lepa was done. The treatment was accessed with observations and results for a period of eight weeks. After this therapy,significant result was observed. It was observed that the results achieved in both groups are effective and stable during follow up period.

Sthaulya (Obesity) is a blessing of the modern age of machines and materialism. Almost 30-65% of adult urban Indian is either overweight or obese or has abdominal obesity. Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for serious diet related chronic disease, including type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension & stoke and certain forms of cancer. So there is need to control the disease by natural ways. Yogic exercise like Kapal Bhati and Pachimottanasana help to reduce obesity with considerable health benefits therefore, study has been intended to appraise the alteration on subjective and objective parameters by Kapal Bhati and Paschimottanasana in obese individuals. Material and methods: Total 50 subjects of both genders diagnosed as overweight, grade I and grade II on the basis of BMI criteria were registered in OPD and IPD of NIA. These subjects were divided into two groups by random sampling method in group K and P. Group K individuals were instructed Kapal Bhati whereas subjects of group P were Paschimottanasana. All the subjects were evaluated for subjective and objective parameters. Result: Statistical analysis was done initial and after three months of life style modification which showed superior rejoinder in terms of diminution in subjective and objective parameters after performing Kapal Bhati and Paschimottanasana. Conclusion: Action of Kapal Bhati is the process which may increases the metabolic activities of the body, by this action it resulted in gradual improvement in reducing the subjective complaints whereas the Paschimottanasana process results in reducing the objective as well as subjective complaints by enhancing the metabolic activities and imparting the massing effect over the various body parts.

Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure or arterial hypertension, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated Hypertension is comman disorder rising in incidence once established treatment is obligatory. It is an instrumental disease so there is no description found directly in Ayurvedic classic. Hypertension is a Tridoshaja Vyadhi with predominance of Vata Dosha. Vata is a unique Dosha which regulate and also responsible for the movement of other Dosha (Pitta and Kapha). Moreever hypertension is multifactorial diseases, accordindly the treatment is diverse. Lots of drugs are already in use either alone or in combinations. Drugs once started usually continued for lifelong. Hence the research is still on to find a safe, cost effective and suitable drug for treatment of hypertension. The study was conducted in 25 clinically diagnosed patients of Essential Hypertension (EHT) with an objective to assess the effect of aqueous extract of Eclipta alba in the management of Essential Hypertension on various scientific parameters. Group was administered aueous extract of Eclipta alba 500 mg twice a day for 30 days. Results and discussion reveal that Group administered with above drug have shown the highly significant result in the systolic as well as diastolic blood pressure and significant improvement in subjective parameters.

Abnormal vaginal discharge is a whitish mucoid discharge from the vagina. It may be thick and viscoid, and foul smelling when it is caused by some infection. A study in the India has shown that the prevalence of reproductive tract infections are 37% Based on symptoms, 36.7% Based on laboratory investigations, 31% Candidiasis, 02% Trichomoniasis, 45% Bacterial vaginosis, 03% Gonorrhoea. In modern science, various treatments are available for abnormal vaginal discharge but all have unsatisfactory results and complications, thus, there is a great scope of research to find out safe, potent and effective remedy for the management of abnormal vaginal discharge. An open randomised clinical trial was conducted on 15 clinically diagnosed patients of abnormal vaginal discharge and were given Kasisadi Varti 3 gm OD alternate day for 2 consecutive cycles.The study shows statistically extremely significant result on symptoms i.e. consistency of vaginal discharge and vulval itching, very significant result on discharge per vaginum, foul smell, backache and burning micturation and shown statistically significant result colour of discharge, pain in lower abdomen and general weakness.No adverse effect was observed. Thus, Kasisadi Varti can be recommended for the management ofabnormal vaginal discharge.

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Cancer is a leading cause of death and disability globally, impacting more than 14 million people each year. Leukaemia is a type of cancer of blood which is caused by the rapid production of abnormal WBC. In Ayurveda the reference of the cancer and blood cancer found indirectly under the heading of arbuda and rakta arbuda respectively. General leukemia’s are classified on the basis of cell type predominately involved, into myeloid and lymphoid, and on the basis of natural history of the disease into acute and chronic. In Ayurveda there are so many herbo-minerals drugs have described for cancer. The study herbominerals drugs has prepared by using purified Arsenic, Vinca rosea and Urgenia indica to study in vivo myeloid leukaemic activity and toxicity . This study was conducted according to OECD guidelines 423 and the anti leukaemic activity was done by benzene induced myeloid leukaemia in albino mice after animal ethical clearance. The highest dose of the test drug (2000mg/kg) in acute toxicity study shows minimal adverse effect of toxicity on liver and no adverse effect was found kidney and spleen. The effect of study drug shows good anti myeloid leukaemic activity though standard drug was found better than study drug. Overall study was found safe and effective on myeloid leukaemia.

Acharya Sushruta described in detail about Vrana in Sushruta Samhita. Aim of a surgeon is to create and treat wounds. Surgical infection, particularly surgical site infection (SSI), is a major concern in surgical practice. It is an established fact that microbes are responsible for wound contamination and thus delayed healing. Ayurvedic literature contains the references which indicate that in that period there was also knowledge of factors which cause Vrana Dusti. In the treatment of Vrana primary aim is to create the condition of Suddha Vrana followed by Ropana of the Vrana. To achieve this goal of Vrana Shodhana and Ropana many treatment modalities have been mentioned in our literature. Considering the above mentioned points, an experimental study was planned to evaluate the efficacy of Arkadigana extracts on various microorganisms. Phyto-chemical analysis as per API guidelines and Antimicrobial activity of the aqueous, ethanolic and petroleum ether extracts of Arkadigana were prepared and tested on 8 common pathogenic micro organisms those responsible for wound infection. Experimental study shows Arkadigana was very effective against micro organism, those responsible for wound infection.

Introduction : Dhupana karma is described for sterilization of hospitals/environment in Ayurveda texts. Patients are exposed to medicated fumes produced from defined drug formulations in Dhupana karma. Its indication in prevention as well as treatment of infections like vrana, karna srava, yoni kandu, svetapradara clues about its antimicrobial activity. Various dhupa formulations are indicated in classical texts, Nimbadi dhupa is one such formulation indicated in fever. Aims and objectives : The present study is aimed at evaluation of antimicrobial activity of Nimbadi dhupa (fumigation) on certain bacterial strains. Material and Methods : It includes selection of Nimbadi dhupa contents, selection of bacteria and a dhupana karma set up. S.aureus, E. coli and K. pneumoniae were subjected to fumes of Nimbadi dhupa in a closed fumigation setup. The effect of the trial drug was assessed on basis of mean bacterial colony count of the trial bacterial strains after fumigation for 10 min and 20 min and compared with the control group (no fumigation done) of the same selected strains. ANOVA test and Tukey Kramer comparison test were used to analyse the observations statistically. Results : Nimbadi dhupa was found to have significant results on the trial bacterial strains with the order K.pneumonia>S.aureus>E.coli with the following change of 85.79%, 76.61 % and 59.02 % respectively in mean bacterial colony count after fumigation of 20 min. Discussion : Nimbadi dhupa is a potent antimicrobial formulation. It consists of drugs having the properties laghu, ruksha, tikshna, ushna, katu and tikta rasa which are exactly opposite to the prakriti of krimi and hence these drugs act as krmighna

Ayurveda is recognized as one of the oldest of the traditional systems of medicine (TSMs) accepted worldwide. The ancient wisdom given by acharyas or ancient texts like Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, Bhavaprakash Nighantu, Bhaishjya Ratnawali are still not exhaustively explored. Sariva has been one of the most important plants used as Ayurvedic medicine. The blood purifier or Raktapittashamak properties of sariva were recognized in the ancient Indian, Chinese, Greek, and Roman civilizations. Sariva etymology in Sanskrit is Sheeryannteannya Dosha means it correct all the doshas of our body. It is traditionally used to heal wounds, relieve itching and swelling, and is known mainly for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti poisonous properties. This review aims to bring into limelight the medicinal uses of very effective medicine of tribal plants Shweta Sariva(Hemidesmus Indicus) and Krishna sariva (cryptolepsis buchanani). This would help the budding scholars, researchers and practitioners gain deeper explicitness of herbs describe in Ayurvedic texts.

The Human body is as complex as the universe. Each particle has its own power of attraction and repulsion to other. At the end of attraction and repulsion, stage of stability comes which is manifested either as health or disease. Initiation of disease requires aprecise process and period of time where its manifestation depends upon various factor. The gateway for those factors depending upon only two elements i.e Rasa and Prana. Where Both are responsible for two outcome either normalcy or diseased. All the treatment therapies are also depending upon these two factors and involved to maintain their normal status. Apart from materialistic approach, other mode of treatment is more attracts the people now a day’s especially suffering from those diseases which are kept in chronic and disorders group of disease. Owing to changing environment, quality of nourishment through the one factor is decreasing so there is need to enhance the other factor of growth to especially overcome to above discussing disease which relates with approach of Prana.

Ayurveda is a very ancient, sacred and contemporary science of life. Ayurveda has its own fundamental principles for examination of healthy person and a patient and diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It is necessary to examine these principles with the help of Pramana for understand, analyse and application of these principles in treatment. In Ayurveda, Pramana has been used for logical review of the subject matter and facts in which main pramana is Aptopdesa, Pratyaxa, Anumana, Yukti and Upmama. Upmaan is use for the knowledge of the subject by similarity and dissimilarity. Caraka has compaired the human body with the universal development as he states this Purusha is like the world. Different upmas are used by the Acharyas to explain the subject matter by which one can easily understand the mysteries related to diagnosis and treatment of diseases. In this research paper scholar have given a general introduction of upamaan pramana, need of accepting upmaan pramaan as an independent source of knowledge, upma and its component, types of upmaan pramana and utility of upmaan pramana in diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

Despite the advancements in diagnostic techniques and therapeutic interventions, medical science has failed to keep the incidence of congenital malformations under control. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical system has given due emphasis on this and postulated various measures to minimize the risks. These measures start well before conception. According to Ayurvedic principles, proper preparation of the parents is an essential prerequisite for a healthy progeny. Pre-conception care is a set of interventions that identifies biomedical behavioral and social risks to the health of the mother and the baby. It includes both-prevention and management, emphasizing health issues that require action before conception, very early in pregnancy, for maximal impact. For meeting the objective of healthy progeny, Ayurveda scholars felt the importance of six procreative factors (Shadgarbhkarabhavas) such as Matrija, Pitrija, Aatmaja, Rasaja, Satmyaja & Sattvaja. The conglomeration of these procreative factors is must for healthy progeny. The physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being of the person, proper nutrition of the mother during pregnancy, and practice of a wholesome regimen, play a prime role in achieving a healthy offspring, thus structuring a healthy family, society, and nation. Negligence toward any of these factors becomes a cause for unhealthy and defective child birth. The present conceptual study focuses mainly on interpreting these observations, on the basis of modern scientific knowledge.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is characterized by persistent proteinuria, decline in renal glomerular function, hypertension, and progression to end stage renal disease. Diabetic nephropathy (DN) develops in 15–20% of subjects with Type1 Diabetes Mellitus and in similar or higher percentage of Type2 Diabetes Mellitus patients, causing increased morbidity and premature mortality. Although overt Diabetic Nephropathy or kidney failure caused by either type of diabetes are very uncommon during childhood or adolescence, diabetic kidney disease in susceptible patients almost certainly begins soon after disease onset and may accelerate during adolescence, leading to micro albuminuria or incipient Diabetic Nephropathy.Therefore, all diabetics warrant ongoing assessment of kidney function and screening for the earliest manifestations of renal injury and Pediatric health care professionals ought to understand about risk factors, strategy for prevention, and treatment of early Diabetic Nephropathy.This reviewconsiders risk factors for its development, screening for early manifestations, prevention and treatment in the form of pathya–apathya and oral intervention of anti diabetic and Reno protective Ayurveda drug (Gokshur, Punarnava, Mahanimba, Shilajit Kakmachi,) by its diuretic, antihypertensive, immunomodulatary, hypoglycemic and hypo-lipidemic activity, helpful in treating diabetes mellitus and its complication (diabetic nephropathy) and progression in early stage.

As the global scenario is changing rapidly & our body is getting more exposure towards various environmental hazards like air pollution and Pranvaha Srotas is especially vulnerable from them. Prana is the life giving force, the universal energy without which even single cell cannot survive. In the universe nutrition has been classified into three types as -Prana vayu (gaseous state), drava (liquid state), and ahara (solid state). These can be considered as bahya Prana which is essential to all living beings but in this context bahyaprana is mean to Pranavayu (oxygen). Ayurveda explains the twelve factors which constitute the Prana that is Prana can only exist in combination and integrated function of the 12 factors like Agni, Soma, Vayu, satwa, raja and tama, the five sense organs in the form indriyas and the structurally in combination of subtle form of the Panchamahabutas. Proper functioning of Pranvaha Srotas is very essential for human health. So the proper knowledge of Bahya Prana and Abhyantar Prana related with modern systemic anatomy is very needful

The main object of any medical science is to provide benefit to human health. All applications of this science are directed at human body. Ayurveda consider Purusha (individual) as Ahikarana of these applications. For this purpose, complete and clarified knowledge about Prusha is essential. Acharya Chakrapani Datta and Acharya Dalhana both the commentators had evaluated purusha as per direction of their root texts Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita respectively. In present study comparative analysis has been done among similar and dissimilar references of Ayurveda Dipika and Nibandha Sangraha to appraise purusha from all possible perspective

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder characterised by polyuria, polydipsia, and polyphagia. The glucose metabolism is affected in this disease leading to raised blood sugar level which later on results into grave consequences. Though modern system of medicine have succeeded with very advanced treatment consisting of oral hypoglycaemic drugs and insulin therapy which very effectively lowers the blood sugar level, but the symptoms like weakness, burning sensation and constipation etc. are usual complaints of patients of DM which do not get relieved by this treatment. Ayurveda plays an effective role in the management of this disorder as ayurveda herbs have both anti diabetic effect and symptomatic relief. In this study five newly diagnosed patient of DM II were given a formulation named as madhumehahari churna in the dose of 5 grams before meal for 3 months. All the cases showed improvement both in symptoms and blood parameters.
