ABSTRACT

The term hyperlipidaemia signifies an elevation of lipid or fat content in the blood. Hyperlipidaemia may be manifested by elevation of the total cholesterol, the "Bad" low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and the triglyceride concentrations, and a decrease in the "Good" high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration in the blood. High blood cholesterol gets the most attention because of the link between cholesterol and heart disease. Cholesterol has received a great deal of press, and medical experts agree that high blood cholesterol is a major modifiable risk factor for Coronary Artery Disease. Impairment of various enzymes is the important cause of primary and secondary hyperlipidaemia. Ayurueda also considers that the causes of all these conditions are Agni Vikriti. Here Jatharagni and Dhatwagni (especially Medodhatwagm) are vitiated which result in formation of Amadosha at different levels and accumulation of area Dhatus in various Srotasas. The study was conducted in 30 clinically diagnosed patients of hyperlipidaemia with an objective of clinical evaluation of the role of a Herbal Compound formulation in the management of Hyperlipidaemia on the basis of various scientific parameters. It was observed that the patients of hyperlipidaemia treated with trial drug separately and together with modern medicine showed statistically highly significant correction in Lipid profile. The percentage of improvement was maximum in the patients of mixed therapy group. No side effects were noted in any of the patients during the trial period.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda and Yoga can be defined as a medical science which helps the human body to keep fit, while advising perfect life style and providing cures from indigenous plants, animal products and minerals for ailments. For the present study Pratishyaya which is a very common disease affecting any age group of both sex & prevalent world wide has been selected. It is well known for its recurrence & chronicity. Recurrence of the disease occurs because the Doshas have not been evacuated completely. Such Doshas reside in their latent stage (predisposing stage) & give rise to the same disease when factors (aggravating factors) are favourable (Cha.Chi.3/333,334)• In Ayurveda 3 types of treatment are described for each & every disease, they are: Shamshodhana, Shanshamana, Nidanaparivarjana Ayurveda has 'Panchakarma' and 'Yoga' uses `Shatkarma' for Samshodhana. Comparative to Ayurvedic 'Panchakarma' the Yogic `Shatkarma' are simple, natural, effective remedies without toxic side effect and less expensive, need less care and attention and consume less time. The Yogic `Shatkarma' are - Neti, Dhauti, Basti, Tratak, Nauli, and Kapalbhati. As per the Yogic Classics Neti is the line of treatment for Pratishyaya. Therefore Jalaneti has been selected as treatment modilition for the present study. And For Samshamana therapy Chitraka-Haritaki Avaleha is selected as it is indicated by almost all ayurvedic classics for the treatment of Pratishyaya. The results were highly significant of combine therapy (Jala Neti and Chitraka Haritaki Avaleha).

ABSTRACT

This study was planed & performed to evaluate the action of Gossypium herbaceum drug sample on isolated microorganism in vitro. For this study, five common pathogenic strains of bacteria were taken. . For evaluating the antibacterial activity of Karpaas leaves powder in five different solvents, were employed successfully. After observing the media culture plates with antibacterial activity. It was seen that - Aquous extract of Gossypium herbaceum (Karpaas) shown significant inhibition zone (26mm) on streptococcus pyogen & Staphylococcus aureus (i8mm). As in our classics a Karpaas leaf are indicated for "Pooya Strava Vinashanm" or the drugs which suppress the pus formation or inhibits the spreading of infection for pus formation. Streptococcus & Staphylococcus bacteria are very common for pus formation and aqueous extract have very good inhibition against them. So we can say that the drug have definitely some antibacterial property. By increasing the concentration the range of action may be increase.

The study pertains to the area that forms an important remedial aspects of plants for which human beings should remain ever indebted to them. It involves the scientific evaluation of the three tree barks, Saraca asoka (Ashoka), Ficus bengalensis (Vat) and Butea monosperma (Palash) for their antidiabetic potential. Beginning with phytochemical analysis and water soluble extract (ghansatva) preparation, the study progressed into its major plank of appraising the hypoglycemic and hypocholestrolemic action of the three tree bark gahnsatvas, singly or in equiproportional mixture in alloxan and hydrocortisone diabetic rats. The study conducted on both alloxan and hydrocortisone diabetic rats showed that the ghansatva of the three tree barks given to the animals for four weeks, had significantly lowered the blood glucose levels. Amongst all the experimental groups vat ghansatva was found to be more potent in comparison to three tree bark extracts. These bark extract had also showed significant reduction in serum cholesterol and triglyceride on hydrocortisone induced diabetic rats at both levels (0.05 and 0.00. Bark extract; therefore have been positive modulators of lipid profile of the diabetic animals.

2009   |   October- December   |   VOLUME - III   |   ISSUE - 4

KEYWORDS -
PDF
ABSTRACT

In Principle, the Ayurvedic approach to the treatment of a disease consists of two major procedures. 1) Samsodhana Chikitsa 2) Samsamana Chikitsa. The diseases cured by Samsodhana therapy never relapse, while the diseases cured by Samsamana treatment may reoccur. Indu commenting on Astanga Sangraha opines that Virechana is the procedure in which the orally administered drug acts on internally vitiated doshas, specifically on Pitta and expels them out through anal route. Virechana Karma has got specific action on Dravadhatus (Rasa, Rakta, Lasika, Udaka, Kappa, Pitta etc) and on Vata also, which are prime factors in causation of skin disorders. Hence Virechana is the best Shodhana Karma in various Twak Ragas and to prevent reoccurrences.
