ABSTRACT

Standard Apamarga ksharasutra is used successfully in the management of Bhagandara by researcher. But Snuhi latex having a very little amount of it is collected after the incision of stem, requires fresh latex in ever coating, rare to get in all part of india. It coagulates if not used early and become useless. Collection is more difficult in summer, so preparation is possible only in limited seasons. Sometimes it is painful, irritant and allergic to the patients. Sometime it may be harmful for skin and eyes during preparation, if not use carefully. In Guggulu resin coated Ksharasutra, Guggulu found in some special zone and in a very little quantity. Use of Guggulu having a large share in medicinal preparations. So in future the lack of Guggulu will be definately face. Considering the above mentioned problems, we have decided to plan for modified Shala resin (Shorea robusta) coated Ksharasutra having better action, acceptability and more availability. An annual yield of 4- 5 kg. resin per tree is obtained, For this above cited study three type of Ksharasutras were prepared. So at the end of this study final conclusion can be drawn that Shala resin coated ksharasutra is more competent and effective than Guggulu coated Ksharasutra & Snuhi coated Ksharasutra in the management of Bhagandara (Fistula-in-ano)

ABSTRACT

Karnasrava (CSOM) is a commonly occurring clinical condition in Indian population especially in poor & underprivileged children. It is an important cause of hearing loss, particularly in the developing world. The approach to treatment has been unsatisfactory, expensive and often difficult; for example parenteral antibiotics require long hospitalization and drugs are potentially ototoxic. However, such a treatment does not always provide satisfactory improvement in hearing, and is inaccessible in many developing countries. Keeping in view all these facts, a randomized prospective clinical trial was done in P.G. Department of Shalakyatantra NIA, Jaipur (Raj.) in which total 40 patients, were divided into two groups of 20 patients each. Group (I) was treated with Madhukadi Taila Karnapichu and Rasnadi Guggulu orally and Group (II) with Madhukadi Taila Karnapichu only. Significant results were found in the signs and symptoms of this disease.

ABSTRACT

Srotamsi of the body comprise of channel of different kinds. They may be Sthula, Sukshma or Anu. In general usage the term Srotamsi comprehends all channel- big & small, perceptible & imperceptible- that compose the internal transport system of the body which provide platform for activities of the other important bio-factors like Tridosha, Sapta Dhatu, Oja, Agni etc. In Ayurvedic classics the term Srotas is used as dynamic inner transport system of body-mind-spirit organization in addition to circulatory system. Srotas is one of the most controversial points, but of course important too, as it is recognized as the structural & functional unit of the body. It is pre-requisite for the maintenance of good health. Improper foods, erratic behaviour & such other things which are not conductive to the body brings abnormality in Srotas leading to manifestation of diseases. Adoptance of normal conductive foods & actions leads to happiness & sound health.

It is manifested physiologically by a widespread narrowing of air passage which may be relieved spontaneously or as a result of therapy and, clinically by paroxysms of dyspnoea, cough and wheezing. Since the management of Bronchial Asthma with allopathic medicine is temporary and at times associated with serious toxic effects therefore considering the demand of society and taking the responsibility it is necessary to introduce, develop and launch Herbal Nebulizer as safe and effective Ayurvedic procedure for the management of Tamak Shwasa (Bronchial Asthma). Ayurveda has practical solutions for identifying & treating the underlying causes and can bring lasting relief to Tamak Shwasa (Bronchial asthma) sufferers. In Ayurveda Proper Nebulization therapy has been not explained but the process of Dooma-Pana, Dhoopan and Nasya has may be similar in some extent.

KEYWORDS - Jalodaraa,Yakrddalyudara, pleehodaraa, Nitya Virechana, Ascites, Cirrhosis
PDF
ABSTRACT

Liver cirrhosis is a diffuse process of fibrosis that converts liver architecture into structurally abnormal nodules.The commonest causes of cirrhosis worldwide are alcohol abuse and viral hepatitis. In India alcohol abuse accounts for more than 50 % of cases while Hepatitis B accounts for 30-70% and Hepatitis C following the frequency.1 The major manifestation in cirrhosis are features of hepatocellular failure and portal hypertension viz., jaundice, ascites, encephalopathy and gastrointestinal bleeding. Jaundice is usually due to failure of hepatocytes to excrete bilirubin resulting into conjugated hyper bilirubinemia. Ascites is accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity. It is sequel of portal hypertension along with decreased serum albumin level due to low functional hepatocyte mass. A 35 years middle aged male patient presents with complaints of anorexia since 1 month, abdominal pain since 20 days, yellowish discoloration of eyes and urinesince 8 days, vomiting and loose stools, drowsinessand excessive sleep since 8 days to KLE Ayurveda Hospital, Belagavi. On examination icterus was noted withfine tremors in hands, drowsiness, abdominal distension and tenderness in both hypochondrium and epigastric region. On biochemical evaluation, elevated liver enzymes were recorded.Ultrasound imaging showedliver cirrhosis,splenomegaly, portal hypertension and mild to moderate ascites. According to history, laboratory and radiological investigations the case was diagnosed as Liver Cirrhosis with ascites and splenomegaly. As per Ayurvedic classics this condition can be very well correlated with Yakrddalyudarawith Jalodara and pleehodara. Jalodara develops due to variedetiologies related to food, drinks and activities such as consuming excess ushna, vidahi, lavana, ksharaetc foods, continuous and excess use of alcohol etc. It also may manifest secondary to diverse primary diseases that includes Yakrddalyudara. As per Acharya Charaka, choice of treatment in this condition is Nitya Virechana (regular & instant cleansing therapy to eliminate dosafrom kostha), Agnidipana (herbs that enhance the appetite and improve digestion). Same treatment principles have been followed in treating this patient and appreciable results were observed in the form of reduction of abdominal girth, pedal edema along with improvement in appetite and strength.
