ABSTRACT

In this modern era use of intoxicating beverages, canned food, irregular eating and sleeping habits, usage of various synthetic drugs have taken modern man to a world, where immunity is declining day after day and many diseases are evolving. The immune system, which is one of the most complex and intriguing system of the body, declines when the body is formed of unwholesome (toxic) substances (dushivisha) and then the body attempts to eliminate these toxins. One of the routes of elimination of the unwanted product is the skin, so manifestation of skin disease occurs. Ayurveda provides us with detailed information about toxins, their management and methods of purging these poisons out of the body.The drug Sidharthakadi Agad, which is a classical formula of Charaka Samhita, was selected to study. In this present research work 75 patients of Dushivishjanya Vikar with Special Reference to Allergic Eruptive Disorders of the Skin were randomly dividing into three groups. Patients of Group A were given Sidharthakadi Agad only for internal use in 2 tablets (500 mg) three times a day and group B were given Only local application or lepa on the skin lesions and group C were given both the formulations simultaneously. The analysis of the relief percentage of the Sammuchya Lakshnas (overall symptoms) shows that the percentage relief for Group A patients was 34.25% and that for Group B was somewhat lower (25.34%). The relief was maximum for group C (69.52%).The combined effect (when both external and internal medication was administered) has had the best effect with improvements ranging between 52% and 83%. In case of hematological analysis, there were some improvements in Group A and C. So it is an effort to search effective Ayurveda treatment for this disease.

ABSTRACT

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and diabetes mellitus are major diseases for which dyslipidemia is one of the prime causative factor. Abnormal cholesterol levels are estimated to cause 18% of the global CVDs and 56% of the global Ischemic Heart Diseases (IHD). For every 1% reduction in lipid level, the risk of heart diseases reduces by 2.5%. Dyslipidemia is an established risk factor for atherosclerotic disease. In ayurveda dyslipidemia can be compared to Medoroga which is Santarpanotha Vyadhi and Vamana karma is the preferred line of management. Vamanakarma is the best therapy for the elimination of Kapha Dosha and related morbid factors. As Medodhatu is one of the substance belonging to the category of Kapha, in this trial Vamana Karma was selected for the treatment of Dyslipidemia. Kutaja (Vatsaka) Beeja churna was selected for Vamanakarma which is indicated mainly in Kapha Diseases, heart diseases and similar condition arising out of excessive Kapha and Meda. So it has been selected for Vamana Karma in 15 patients. The results of the trial were highly significant in reducing lipid levels.

There is an urgent need to develop tools of identification of medicinal plant raw materials at multiple levels which can be used by Ayurvedic physicians, researchers and pharmaceuticals with limited or well equipped analytical facilities. The chief methods employed in evaluating drugs are Organoleptic i.e. practical & on the spot tool, Physical & Chromatographic – Lab based tools, Experimental and Clinical – final confirmative tools.

KEYWORDS - Adhah Shakha, Angula Pramana, Aayama, Vistara, BM.
PDF
ABSTRACT

Introduction : Ayurveda has individualized the concept of health. No two individual are completely alike physically, mental aptitudes, abilities or in vital reactions. The study was conducted to appraise the hidden concept of Angula Pramana; an effort was made to establish relation between Pramana of various parameters for Adhah Shakha mentioned in classics and modern anthropometric landmarks and findings and to standardize the Svaanguli Pramana. Methodology : In the study, anthropometric measurement of breadth of middle finger at the level of proximal interphalangeal joint of left hand (BM) was taken. The data for 15 parameters of Adhah Shakha of left side were recorded, converted into Angula (by BM) and analysed statistically with Samhita value. 100 females having 18-30 years of age, same geographical area (Rajasthan) and socioeconomic status were included. Females having any congenital and pathological deformities, metabolic and endocrinal disorders, amputation of limb and pregnancy were excluded. Results : It was found that measurement of Anguli Pramana BM would be average of 1.38-1.71 and SD 0.08. Discussion and Conclusion : Variations found in mean value in study may be due to the small sample size, and evolutionary changes. Maximum variations were seen in Uru Aayama and Jangha Aayama. The obtained measurements of Paadamadhyama, Prapada Aayama, prapada Vistara, Paadatala Aayama, Parshni Aayama and Januparishthata were found to be almost nearer to the Samhita value.
