ABSTRACT

Cognitive deficit is also called intellectual disability, is a condition beginning in childhood in which children show significant limitations in their ability to learn and function. Mental retardation is one of an important entity of the cognitive deficit. The clinical study was conducted to evaluate the role of Brahmi Ghrita and Jyotishmati Tail in the management of cognitive deficit (Borderline Mental Retardation) in children. The study was assessed in 50 children in 8-13 year age group as per diagnostic criteria. The results indicate that maximum improvement was seen in the function orientation (P<0.01) and recall (P<0.05). Maximum symptomatic improvement was seen in the symptoms ‘decreased learning ability’ i.e. 93.75%, followed by ‘inability to meet the educational demands at school’ i.e. 92%. IQ level of the children were also improved by 1.92% showing highly significant improvement (P<0.001).

ABSTRACT

The fundamental concept and principles of Ayurveda serve the humanity since long back. Therule to live healthy and disease free life is the prime Moto of Ayurveda.The fundamental concepts are using since long but at present, we arenot in a position to describe exactly the complete laboratory scenarioabout these principles.Being such uniquely important concept it has remained just as non-applied literary bulk. The only reason behind this is its subjective nature or in other words lack of understandable objectivity.In this condition,our principles lose their importance due to lack of objectivity according to the present time, which are little hard to understand in the absence of objectivity rather than subjectivity.Today this is an era of science and technology in which everything should be assessed perfectly. It is the need of time to evaluate and standardize our principles in both ways.Here in the present study, an attempt has been done entitled with“Evaluation and Standardization of SnigdhaGunaofBhrajak Pitta w.s.r. toVicharchika”for the study 30 healthy individuals and 30 diseased persons (vatapradhanavicharchika) were grouped in to two groups. The results were quite positive.

ABSTRACT

Garbhini Pandu/Anaemia in pregnancy is a common disease with high prevalence 40-80% in India. WHO defines Anaemia in pregnancy as presence of haemoglobin less than 11gm/dl and hematocrit less than o.33gm/dl. However in India and most of the developing countries, the lower limit is often accepted as 10gm/ dl. Clinical features of Anaemia depend up on the degree of anaemia. The common feature of anaemia are pallor of varying degree, fatigue, dyspnoea, anorexia, swelling on legs, palpitation, pica etc. In ayurvedic texts direct description of Garbhini Pandu is not present. In Harit Samhita vaivarnata is included as one of eight disease supposed to occur during pregnancy. The present study was conducted on 30 clinically diagnosed and confirmed patients of Garbhini Pandu. The study was conducted with an objective of evaluating the role of Saptamrit Lauh and Dhatri Lauh in the management of Garbhini Pandu. Group A patients were treated with oral administration of Saptamrit Lauh 500 mg b.i.d with sahpana of madhu 2gm and ghee1gm. Group B patients were treated with Dhatri Lauh 500 mg b.i.d with sahpana of madhu 2gm and ghee1gm. During the present trial it was observed that there was highly significant improvement in clinical manifestation of anaemia after therapy with both drugs. But the percentage of relief was more in Saptamrit Lauh than Dhatri Lauh. The level of Hb, TRBC, PCV, MCV, MCH, MCHC, Serum Iron increases after therapy and level of TIBC decreases. But the improvement in blood indices was more due to Saptamrit Lauh than Dhatri Lauh.

KEYWORDS - Avaleha, Tamaka shwasa, Bronchial asthma, Clinical efficacy.
PDF
ABSTRACT

Background: WHO surveys of reports approximately 1,80,000 annual deaths because of bronchial asthma, which is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the respiratory tract. Increased industrialization and pollution are the exacerbating factors for this situation. In Ayurveda, this miserable condition is comparable with Tamaka Shwasa. Synthetic drugs provide instant symptomatic relief in cases of Bronchial Asthma, but are known to develop adverse drug reactions including drug dependency. Knowing this, the current suffering population is looking hopefully towards other systems of medicines like Ayurveda for better relief. Ayurveda has huge varieties of formulations to treat Tamaka shwasa and are in practice with proven efficacy since ages. Aim: To review comparative effect of three earlier works done with Vasavaleha, Shirishavaleha, and Vyaghri Haritaki avaleha in cases of Tamaka Shwasa. Materials and Methods: The results were assessed in terms of clinical recovery, symptomatic relief and pulmonary function improvement. Effect of the treatment was assessed based on subjective and objective parameters. Results: A significant increase in PEFR, considerable decrease in Absolute Eosinophil Count (AEC), and increased Breath Holding Time (BHT) were noticed after the treatment. Withdrawal of modern emergency drugs, decreased frequency of attacks, increased quality of life were the major observations noticed in many cases. Conclusion: These studies highlight the significance of traditional herbal formulations in non communicable diseases like Bronchial asthma, which can be used as an effective drug in place or along with modern drugs as an adjuvant.

The Concept Of Kritanna-Varga In Ayurveda

2014   |   October- December   |   VOLUME - VIII   |   ISSUE - 4

KEYWORDS - Ahar, Kritanna, Ayurveda, Samhita
PDF
ABSTRACT

A long healthy life has been the cherished wish of man since antiquity and it is observed in many contexts in Vedic literature especially in Ayurveda. Dhatusamya (equilibrium of body tissues) plays an important role to fulfill the quest of longevity and it is achieved by observance of traya-upastambha (three supports of life) i.e. Ahar (food), nidra (sleep) and brahmacharya (celibacy or good conducts). Being supported by these three well regulated factors of life, the body is endowed with strength, complexion, and growth, and continues up to the full span of life, provided a person does not indulge in such regimen as are detrimental to health. Out of the three upastambhas, ahar is the first one and has been given due importance considering essential entity for health. While stating the significance of ahar, Acharya Charak says that body as well as diseases is caused by ahar depending upon its wholesomeness and unwholesomeness respectively. Healthy diet has been defined in terms of shadras-ahar, regularly usable dietary substances and their quantity in terms of entirety and quantity of each of the ingredient. Wholesome diet is considered as pathya which is equivalent to bheshaj (medicine). It is the core part of treatment in Yuktivyapashraya-chikitsa. Ayurvedic texts describe in detail about the ahar, its contents, preparations and conducts of its use besides consideration of fundamental principles like agni, dosha, prakriti, kal and desha of an individual. Acharya Charak has discussed twelve class or groups of the dietary substances. Kritanna-varga (a class of cooked/prepared food) is one of the twelve groups which deal with the methods of preparation, properties, uses and clinical application of various food articles. A particular samskar (processing) is followed in their preparation to increase the qualities and suitability. Kritanna-varga includes the use of Manda, Peya, Vilepi, Yusha, Yavagu (gruel), soup, Mamsa-rasa (meat-soup), Sattu (roasted corn flour), Krishara (porridge), Odan (cooked rice), Rag-Shadav, Khad-Kamblik, Manth, Panak and many other preparations of diet. It is useful for both the healthy and diseased persons. Again it is useful in shaman as well as shodhan-chikitsa.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is an ancient health science which helps in the eradication of disease as well as maintaining health of healthy person. It forms a precious base of Indian culture. It is best among all the health sciences because of its basic Sidhantas e.g. Tridosha, Panchmahabhootas, Dincharya, Ritucharya, Sadvrita etc.The Chaturvidha Ahara (Asita, pita, leedha, Khadita) which a person consumes is responsible for formation Sapta Dhatu. Shukra is also formed from this Aahara, finally as a Dhatu, according to physiology described by the Acharyas by the way of kshiradadhi nyaya, kedarikulya nyaya, khalekapot nyaya. Charak consider Vrishanu (testicles) and Shepha (penis) as the Mula of Shukravaha srotas1. Shushruta considers Vrishna and Stana (breasts) as the Mula of Shukravaha srotas. The Prasadansha of Shukra is responsible for the conception denotes spermatozoa which carry all genetic characteristics of the individual.

A Diagnostic Study Of Allergic BronchialAsthmaVis–A-Vis Dushivisha- An Overreview

2014   |   October- December   |   VOLUME - VIII   |   ISSUE - 4

KEYWORDS - Allergic bronchial asthma, Dushivisha, Vishaghna Chikitsa
PDF
ABSTRACT

There is no direct reference of Allergic Bronchial Asthma as such in classical texts, but Ayurveda explains various types of disease or symptoms that are similar to Type I hypersensitivity reactions. Altered immune response or Ojodushti finds intrinsic and extrinsic causes in Ayurveda. One among them is Dushivisha. The references regarding Dushivisha point out that it can generate similar harmful effects as that of hypersensitivity reactions. ““∑§Ê‹ÊãÃ⁄¬˝∑§ÙÁ¬ Áfl·¢ ºÍ·ËÁfl·◊˜–”” (øR§.Á≈.ø.‚È.21/45) This verse indicates the latent or subclinical allergy. While the reference ““ÿlÁ¬ Ÿ ¬˝ÊáÊ„⁄¢ ÃÕÊÁ¬ ’„Ⱥٷ∑§⁄◊˜–”” (ø.Áø.wx/vyÆ) is indicative of the harmful effects it can impart on the body. The peculiarity of Dushivisha is that it remains latent in Dhatus (tissues) and on vitiation it produces hazardous consequences on the body. The prime factors taking part in the pathogenesis of Allergic Bronchial Asthma are Nija and Agantuja (Bahya Gara Visha), Avyadhisahtwa, and Dushivisha. Nija Gara Visha which are produced by Viruddhahara (unwholesome substances) and Agnimandyakar Nidana acts as antigens. The toxic effects of these antigens are not completely neutralized by the antibody due to Avyadhisahatva, instead get sensitized and bind to the mast cells. This improperly naturalized Visha (toxins) when comes in contact with antigen produces injurious consequences in the sensitized host. The antigen antibody mediated abnormal immune response can be correlated with pathological and clinical features of Dhatugata Visha or Dushivisha in Ayurveda. Assuming the role of Dushivisha (sensitized IgE bound to mast cell and basophils) and Avyadhusahatva (circulating IgE) in Allergic Bronchial Asthma, the treatment line should be planned in this disease. In Ayurveda, Tamaka Shwasa can be correlated with the disease A.B.Asthma. The basic steps of management of Tamaka Shwasa are Shodhana, Shamana, and Rasayana, along with this treatment management, Vishaghna Chikitsa is also necessary as the whole world is embedded in the test tube of different kinds of toxins. So here an effort is made to study the role Dushivisha in the pathogenesis of Allergic bronchial Asthma is very much necessary for its proper and effective treatment
