The terms steatosis and fatty change describe abnormal accumulation of triglycerides within parenchymal cells of liver. Small fat droplets are commonly found in many normal cells, but when abnormal triglyceride storage becomes obvious at the light microscopic level in liver, the condition is described as fatty liver. Fatty change is often seen in the liver because it is the major organ involved in fat metabolism. In the Ayurvedic classics no exact description of the Fatty Liver Degeneration is available but it appears that the similar situation was practically known to the Ayurvedie physicians and they used to diagnose and treat this disease according to the Dashika involvement and Dosha Dushya Sammurehana. "Maharshi Sushruta" has described the "Yakriddalyudara" under the heading of "Udara Royce' which are difficult to cure. The probable hypothesis about the pathogenesis of disease Fatty Liver shows its relation with the production of Ama Dosha at various levels, particularly at the level of Jatharagni (Jatharagnimandyata) followed by vitiation of Raktagni leading to the production of Sama Pitta which is the root causes for the development of disease. Dhatwagnimandyata may result in production of Sama Meda. The study was conducted in 40 clinically and radiologically diagnosed patients of Fatty Liver with an objective of clinical evaluation of the role of a "Hepato-Protective Drugs" Ghana Vati in the management of Fatty Liver (Fatty Liver Degeneration) on the basis of various scientific parameters.
It was observed that the patients of Fatty Liver treated with trial drug separately and together with modern medicine showed statistically highly significant correction in ESR, Hb gm.%. Liver Function Tests, Total Serum Cholesterol and Serum Triglycerides. The percentage of improvement was maximum in the patients of Ayurvedic and Mixed therapy group. No side effects were noted in any of the patients during trial period.

A Clinical Study on Efficacy of Kumarintajj a and Haridra on Episiotomy Wound
Lot of treatment advances in wound management is made, but several types of wound and ulcers still pose recalcitrant to treatment. The episiotomy wound being in the sensitive perineum where the flushing opening of the body opens, this wound can be infected, leading to wound dehiscence. Episiotomy wound can be considered as a sadhyovrana and the management done likewise. In the present study attempt is made to see the direct or indirect reference for episiotomy wound in ayurveda classics and an attempt is made to control its pain , tenderness and inflammation with an ayurvedic preparation. Kumari and haridra accelerated the healing process leaving behind a thin scar on 5th day of the treatment.

2010 | April-June | VOLUME - IV | ISSUE - 2
KEYWORDS - Bronchial asthma, Standardization, Antimicrobial study, Nebulization, Bronchodilator and anti-inflammator• effect, Pulmonary Function Test.
It is high time to think about emergency treatment in Ayurvedic therapy. Ayurvedic medicines prove its efficacy in the management of chronic condition but acute/emergency conditions are still not manageable by Ayurvedic medicines. The present research work is carried out with the aim to establish the herbal preparation as emergency management for Bronchial Asthma. The clinical study was planned in two parts. The first part deals with preparation of drug, its standardization and antimicrobial study and second part deals with assessment of its efficacy in acute attack of Bronchial Asthma, and its comparison with the efficacy of modern medicine. Total of 20 patient's were selected for the trial. 10 were given Herbal Nebulizer and remaining 1❑ were divided into two subgroups of 5 patient's each. One subgroup was treated with Asthalin and another with Budecort . The broncbodilator and anti-inflammatory effect of modern drug was compare with that of Ayurvedic medicine.

Sthaulya (Obesity) is one among the major diseases of modern era. WHO, in 1998 designated obesity as a global epidemic. India is also facing the epidemic of obesity and its associated diseases, especially in children and adolescents. Atleast 30% of obesity begins in childhood. Pediatric obesity is becoming a major public health problem of our country. Continuously changing erroneous life styles, environment and diet habits are mainly responsible for rising trend of obesity. This clinical study was conducted on 35 patients to assess the efficacy of Triphala Guggulu syrup in the management of Bala atisthaulya (childhood obesity) on various scientific parameters. Two months therapy showed statistically highly significant results on various anthropometric, biochemical and subjective parameters. Best results were observed in Kapha vats and Kapha pitta prakriti individuals. No untoward effect of trial drug was observed during entire study period.

Ayurveda is buzzing with a novel vibrancy now-a-days. Although it has succeeded in attracting global attention, but to sustain this Ayurveda needs to re-express itself in terms of globally understood scientific parameters. At the same time Ayurveda also requires to keep its own unique principle based approach. Therefore, the research models used in conventional bio-medicine may not be adopted as such in Ayurveda, as found in many cases. In such a scenario Ayurveda needs to evolve its own research model following many methodologies used to assess whole system based applications. There needs to be a paradigm shift in Ayurvedic research to attain a bi-fold objective of, one scientific revalidation of facts of Ayurveda and preserving its originality.
Ayurveda, the holistic alternative science is believed to be the oldest healing science in existence, forming the foundation of all others. Originally four main books of Vedic spirituality existed, known as the Vedas: Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva. Eventually, Ayurveda was organized into its own compact system of health and considered under a branch of Atharva Veda. The ancient Ayurvedic system comprises of specialty in eight Branches of Ayurvedic medical science. Although Rasa Shastra was not described amongst the eight divisions of Ayurveda, but it has its origin long back since the time of Vedas as they have described not only the use of herbal drugs but of mineral preparations also, latter with time it gave momentum to the use of metals and minerals for therapeutic purposes owing to its greater potency and quick action. But the efficacy, safety and authenticity of various Herbo-Mineral formulations today is a big question for the want of quality raw material etc., also there is need for scientific validation of various variants of the same herbo-mineral formulations described in various Ayurvedic texts. Many Drugs described in classical texts for the treatment of various disorders, here in this study we take one of them, i.e. Chandrakala Ras.
The immune response to an allergen is dependent on an initial sensitization process, with future exposures triggering a two-part allergic response including an earl} and a late phase. Similarly, the roles of the different preformed mediators responsible for many of the signs and symptoms of the early phase response have been elucidated. Recent work also has shed some light on the multitude of cells and mediators involved in the late-phase reactions, which can lead to priming and long-term inflammation. This article will discuss some of this recent work as well as review the basics behind all of the stages of the allergic response, especially as they apply to the nose and upper airway.
