ABSTRACT

Pakshaghata (Hemiplegia) is the third leading cause of death in developing countries. New avenues are being explored for treating early symptoms yet the disease has not been alleviated. So, it was decided to develop an ideal strategy for the management of the disease which could be cheap, effective, safe and easily available for all. For this purpose a hypothetical herbal compound was formulated based on Ayurvedic principles. It was also decided to analyze horoscopes of the patients and hypothetical astro-medical aetiopathogensis of Pakshaghata to establish the co-relation of Ayurveda with Astrology on scientific basis. 45 Clinically diagnosed patients of Pakshaghata were treated with Dashmooladi ksheera Vasti and Dashmooladi Kwatha alone and in combination for 3o days. On the basis of the descriptions available in various treatises of Ayurveda & Astrology, it can be concluded that there is very close correlation of Ayurveda & Astrology in the pathogenesis of various diseases particularly Pakshaghata (Paralysis) and a combined approach delivers much better results.

ABSTRACT

The concept of Agni is an important idea of Ayurveda, which is unique to this science. For a healthy state of body, normalcy of agni is needed. According to Ayurveda all the diseases are due to ama which is caused by vitiated agni. For the effective management of any disease assessment of agni is very essential. It is responsible for the digestion of food substances and biotransformation of medicines. Moreover the entire physiological process of absorption, metabolism and assimilation depend on agni. Even it governs the excretory process also. Lot of information is available about the above physiological process. But the Ayurvedic description about agni is obscure. It is widely accepted that there are three sets of agnies. They are: - Jatharagni, bhutagni and dhatwagni. In Ayurvedic classics detailed and clear information is available about Jatharagni and Dhatwagni. But such a detailed description is not available about bhutagni. Because of that many misconceptions are there regarding bhutagni. In the present article the author has tried to present some ideas with the help of references available in the classics and their Sanskrit commentaries.
