Tennis elbow is likely to be common painful condition of elbow joint. Common extensor tendons
(Extensor carpi radialis brevis and Extensor digitorum communis) originating from the lateral epicondyle of
the humerus get inflamed/degenerated by repetitive trauma and cause considerable pain. On the basis of
pathophysiology and symptomatology, it can be considered as Vatik Snayu Vikara, but there is no any named
disease described in Ayurvedic texts. It has become a challenging medical condition now-a-days because it
affects the daily routine activities of a person. In modern medical science, NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal AntiInflammatory Drugs), LAHC (Local Anaesthetic with Hydrocortisone) and surgery ar2e treatment of choice
with side effects. In Ayurvedic texts, Agni Karma has been mentioned for disorders of Snayu (ligaments and
tendons) and vata dosha. Patients fit under inclusion criteria with sample size 30 were included in the study
in three groups i.e. 10 patients in each group i.e. Agni Karma, Shudhha Guggulu and Agni Karma with
Shudhha Guggulu respectively. Agni Karma and Shudhha Guggulu gave statistically significant results in
Group I and II but on combination gave highly significant results in Group III. Agni Karma with Shudhha
Guggulu provides a better Ayurvedic treatment modality for Tennis elbow without any side effect.

A Comparative Clinical Study of “Rajah-Pravartani-Vati” and “Treivreita-Sneha”Anuvasan-Basti” on Kashtartava W.S.R To Primary Dysmenorrhoea
Dysmenorrhoea is the most common gynaecological problem faced by women during their adolescence
which causes significant discomfort & anxiety for the women. It may create the emotional distress brought on
by the pain and may result in missing work or school, inability to participate in sports or other activities. In
modern medicine dysmenorrhoea is treated by oral contraceptive pills, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,
antispasmodic, analgesics etc. Long term use of these causes side effects. So, it is a great scope of research to
find out safe, potent, cost effective remedy from Ayurveda for its management. Pain is the main feature of
Kashtartava, so it has strong relation with Vata Dosha. Keeping this point in view, the present clinical trial,
“A Comparative Clinical study of “Rajah-Pravartani-Vati” and “Treivreita-Sneha”AnuvasanBasti on Kashtartava w.s.r to Primary Dysmenorrhoea” was taken. The selected two drugs are Vata
shamaka mentioned by the classics. In group A “Rajah-Pravartini-Vati” was given orally and in group B
“Treivreita –Sneha Anuvasan-Basti” was given per rectum. Results were assessed on the basis of improvement
in the subjective symptoms. The study reveals that the Basti group showed better results than the oral group.

Effect of Batankura Ksheera (Ficus benghalensis latex) and Karpoora In The Prevention of Recurrence of Arma (Pterygium) After Arma Chhedana (Pterygectomy)
Arma is the disease of Suklamandal of eyes. It is a chedan sadhya vyadhi which is described by the
ancient authors like Sushruta and Vagabhatta in the advance stage, while in the initial stages ancient authors
had advised application of Lekhan anjana i.e to cure the disease without shalya karma with the help of medicine
Arma can be correlated with the Pterygium in modern science according to its signs and symptoms. In
this clinical study we had used the medicine for lekhan karma in the form of Batankura ksheera and karpoora
locally in the prevention of Arma after Arma chedana. The patient were randomly divided into two groups with
10 patient in each Standard group and Treated group. In Standard group surgical excision was carried out
without the application of batankura ksheera and Karpoora but antibiotic with steroid and anti-inflammatory
drug were given in post operative care. In Treated group surgical excision was followed by application of
batankura ksheera and Karpoora daily for 5 days.
The duration of trial was 1 month in both groups with follow up for 3 months to see recurrence of Arma.
A great relief was found in most of the symptoms and signs of Arma (pterygium) after the trial in Treated group.
Statistically the medicine was found significant in most of the symptoms. Rate of recurrence of arma in Standard
group was 40% and in Treated group it was 20%.

Evaluation of Pippali (Piper longum Linn.) and Lauha Bhasma on blood haemoglobin level
Introduction – Haemoglobin (Hb) deficiency is a global public health problem which has social as
well as economic consequences. Conventional and even Ayurvedic Iron supplements such as lauha bhasma
sometimes fail to give desired results in the management of Hb deficiency. This might be attributed to improper
absorption and utilization due to agnimandya or srotoavarodha. This can be well addressed by adding a suitable
deepana- srotoshodhana (bioavailability enhancing) drug that can increase iron absorption and utilization. This
clinical trial was thus designed to assess the role Pippali plays in enhancing the effect of luaha bhasma on Blood
Objectives - To evaluate efficacy of pippali and lauha Bhasma on blood haemoglobin level in adult

Pharmaceutico- Analytical Study of Agastya Haritaki Rasayana
Agastya Haritaki Rasayana(AH) is an important Ayurvedic Avaleha formulation containing
Dashamoola, Pippali, Bharangi, Kapikacchu and Haritaki, Apamarga, Bala, Pushkarmoola, Shati, Shanka
Pushpi, Chitraka, Pippali Moola, Gajapippli ingredients. Though AH is very effective medicine in the disorders
of Respiratory tract and other allergic reactions but till date there has been no standards for this medicine either
pharmaceutically nor physico-chemically. Hence, the present study was undertaken to standardize the Poly Herbal
formulation (AH) through pharmaceutical and physico-chemically evaluations. The sample was subjected for
various physicochemical parameters like water soluble extractive, alcohol soluble extractive, ash value, loss on
drying, pH, Total Sugar value, HPTLC, Total Antioxidants etc. The results may provide guidelines for
standardization of formulation AH.

A Conceptual Study On Routine Skin Care In Ayurveda
The concept of skin care and cosmetics is as old as the human origin and civilization. The 5000 years
old science of Ayurveda mentioned it in a vast context correlating with the wellness of whole body. But in the
present 21st century, the fastest of all times, people mostly prefer chemical cosmetics in daily life due to lack of
time and easy approach. These may be harmful if used for a long term. These adverse effects can be overdriven
by using Ayurvedic skin care products and herbal cosmetics, which are naturally prepared and leave no side
effects on skin. In this present work a complete and integrated module for safe routine skin care has been
developed keeping the concepts of both Ayurveda and modern skin care.

In this era of modernization and civilization, status of living in every aspect of life is highly advanced.
Man is moving in life like a machine. Due to shortage of time, busy job schedule, rise in standard of living,
convenience & influence of western countries, people are compelled to change their food habits & types of food.
There has been a surprising rise in the demand of junk food because of drastic change in the life style of people.
In addition to these factors one is always under mental stress & physical labor is bothered. So people are living
with sedentary life style. Hence list of life style generated disorders are increasing day by day. In this modern
era the society is conscious enough about “What to eat?” but least about “how to eat?” The dietetic code or the
rules for diet intake are preserved in Ayurvedic classics, but there is a big question about their awareness in

A Critical Study of Viruddhahara With Special Reference To Food Allergy
Now a day’s people eat for taste not for health. They are not aware about the things necessary for the
maintenance of psychosomatic fitness because they don’t know how to achieve benefits of Ahara. Our dietetic
codes and conducts are preserved in ancient Ayurveda texts but people don’t observe these dietetic rules and
follow fast food habits, take incompatible food items. These wrong eating habits are included in Viruddhahara.
Consumption of Viruddhahara gives rise to various diseases of acute and chronic nature. According to modern
science food allergies are immune-mediated disorders, most commonly due to IgE antibodies and type I
hypersensitivity reactions. Although in Ayurveda there is no clear depiction of allergy yet, this Food allergy can
be correlated with the concept of Viruddhahara. Such correlation could play a key role in the evaluation of
Viruddhahara concept and explore a new line in the treatment of food allergy on the basis of Ayurvedic
principles. Food allergy is an acute phenomena with rapid clinical manifestation where as Viruddhahara impacts
the health with its chronic practice due to accumulation of Amavisha within the body. Being different in there
onset behaviour still it is supposed that regular indulgence in Viruddhahara habits predisposes a person to the
disproportion of food allergy.
In today’s fast and forward life it is right time to explore our ancient knowledge and awareness regarding
the subject, on the basis of scientific methodology and observations.

An Evidence Based Conceptual Review to Elicit the Prognosis of Prameha w.s.r. to DM
2018 | April-June | VOLUME - XII | ISSUE - 2
KEYWORDS - Prameha,Diabetes Mellitus,Sadhya-asadhyata,Prognosis of DM,Madhumeha
ASRAVA” mentioned in Kaushika Sutra of Atharvaveda, interpreted by Sayana & Keshavabhatta
commentaries as Mutratisara is considered to be the first available description of DM. Prameha means “to flow”
where “Meha” literally means to flow & prefix “Pra” means excess, in terms of quantity & frequency. Acharya
have listed 20 types of Prameha under a single heading along with their Purvaroopa, Dosha, Dushya &
Lakshana (i.e. changes in the urine). Charaka Samhita & Sushruta Samhita served as the ancient compendia
for early detection & treatment of DM. 20 Subtypes of the disease are well explained along with the changes
induced in the quality of urine. Acharya Sushruta & Vagbhata characterized Prameha by copious & turbid
urine although turbidity varies from type to type depending upon the proportions of involved dosha & dushya.
It is a common belief that these 20 are different forms of urinary/metabolic disorders out of which
Madhumeha is Diabetes Mellitus which is hence incurable. This conception lays the foundation for faulty
diagnosis & prognosis and hence mismanagement of the disease. Successful management can be laid only on
the foundations of proper diagnosis through understanding of the pathophysiology of any ailment. In depth
thorough understanding & reading in between the lines is something that was found essential.
Present work deals with the critical analysis of the text to elicit the prognosis of prameha which will
further facilitate its proper management.

A Study On Roga Marga With Special Reference To Its Rachanatmaka Adhyayana (Anatomical Aspect)
The study of roga or disease involves its study from the point of nidaan panchaka and other factors
like agni saama, nirnama, vyakta sthana, Sadhyasadhyata and roga marga which are a part of samprapti
ghataka. So the study of roga marga is need of hour.
Three paths or margas of diseases were enumerated in charaka samhita as shakha, marmasthi sandhi
and koshtha, which have the synonyms of bahya, madhyama and abhyantara roga margas respectively. The
marga in this context refers to path way of disease.
Abhyantara roga marga is called as maha srotas and koshtha. Some disease and some organs were
illustrated for each roga marga which was approved by the brahatrayees.
The study undertaken revealed that roga marga is ashraya sthana of vyadhis, which is one of the
samprapti ghataka and is helpful in the prognosis of the disease. Thus it indicates the necessity of study on
roga marga in diagnosis. The study of roga marga was also found necessary in the prognosis as well as
treatment of the disease and also common line of treatment for each roga marga has been narrated.

Raktamokshana In Shalakya Rogas : A Literary Review
Raktamokshana is a type of shodhana therapy employed mainly in the diseases of Rakta and Pitta origin.
Raktamokshana is a prime treatment procedure of various Mukharogas specially of Dantamulagata rogas and
Now a days people are consuming so much alcohol, spicy, junk foods and their life style has become
too much deranged. They do not get sleep in time and are not following the rules of Dinacharya -Ritucharya.
Because of all these factors their pitta and rakta get vitiated and they get suffered with many diseases having
rakta, pitta origin. Acharyas has given prime importance to raktamokshana in healthy persons also for the
prevention of various Raktaja and Pittaja diseases.
