ABSTRACT

The Ayurveda stresses upon homeostasis of the dhatus because vikaro dhatu vaishamyam samyam prakriti uchayate. The disease Asthikshaya due to kshaya (Degeneration) of Asthi dhatu is co related with Osteoporosis. Asthi and vata are directly related to each other. If vata increases then bone mass decreases which ultimately leads to Asthikshaya. For balancing vata, basti is the best treatment "Basti Vataharanam Shrestham". To check the process of resorption in the bones and to find a safe and permanent solution to the problem above mentioned research work was carried out. Tikatadi ksheer basti is based on the principle of bastayah ksheersarpishi tiktakoupahitani cha, and Osteocompound is based on the principle of swayonivardhan dravyopayogah pratikarah. Study was conducted on 30 diagnosed patients of osteoporosis/ Asthi kshaya which were randomly divided into three groups A, B and C . In group A, Osteocompound 5oomg each b.d. was given for 3o days with Milk and Ghrita. In group B Tikatadi Ksheer Basti was administered for 21 days after Samyak Abhyanga and Swedana and in group C Osteocompound 2 tab. b.d. was given for 30 days along with Tikatadi Ksheer Basti for 21 days. The group C of combined therapy was most effective followed by group B of only Basti and group C of only tablet, respectively in the management of Asthikshaya/ Osteoporosis.

A Comparative Analytical Study ofPravala Bhasma and Pisti w.s.r. to Moola and Shakha

2012   |   January-March   |   VOLUME - VI   |   ISSUE - 1

KEYWORDS - Bhasma, Pisti, Quality
PDF
ABSTRACT

Of various gems, Pravala is widely used by the Ayurvedic physicians in their day to day practice of life. The use of pravala for internal purposes and for preparing various formulations can be observed. Internally as medicine, it is administered in the form of Bhasma and pisti for curing various ailments such as Amlapitta, Netra Roga and Hridya Raga etc. At the same time it is also being manufactured by various industries. Hence, the product is widely available in the market. But pharmaceutically, it greatly varies from industry to industry and physician to physician in respect to its quality. Moreover, in the market Pravala is available in two forms viz. Pravala shakha and Pravala moola. The Pravala shakha is costlier than the moola. Some of the clinicians claim that Pravala shakha is more efficacious as compared to Pravala moola, regarding this there is no rationale explained in the classical texts. Hence, how to assess its quality and standard is a question in this scientific and advanced era. The parameters like Organoleptic, physical, chemical, Qualitative and Quantitative etc. plays key role by which quality of any dosage form can be determined. In the present study, the Pravala pisti is prepared by triturating with rose water whereas the Pravala bhasma is generally prepared by bhavana with ghritakumari and subjected to puta. Both moola and shakha are prepared by same methods and then analyzed on parameters like organoleptic, physical, chemical which includes loss on drying, total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble extractive, alcohol soluble extractive, pH etc., qualitative and quantitative tests. The results show that there were no significant difference between moola and shakha. However, the percentage of Ca, P, Fe and some other elements is more in pravala moola.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda deals with the maintenance of the swastya of an individual. Swastya includes not only physical, but also mental and spiritual health of a person. Prabha discussed in the text gives valuable information of the physical and especially the mental status of an individual. In this article an attempt is made to compare the concept of Prabha told by aacharyas to the magnetic energy field which exists surrounding the physical body. This energy form termed as Aura has similar descriptions as those of Prabha in our texts. Now- a- days one can understand emotional and health aspects of an individual by knowing the color and shape of his Aura.

Critical Review of Fate of Dantasharkara If Not Early Treated- A Modern Aspect

ABSTRACT

Dirt of the teeth is like hard crystals of sugar adhering to the teeth and destroying the qualities of the teeth. This sharkara, if neglected, breaks up the skin of the teeth (crown). It can lead to fallout of crown of the teeth and thus destroy the teeth. The clinical crown of the tooth, the gingiva and oral mucosa are bathed in saliva and exposed to the rich oral flora. These two elements form the major components of environment for the tissues, with the addition of a large number of occasional factors associated with a diet, the mechanisms of eating and oral habits. The interaction of saliva and oral flora with the intermittent influence of the diet produces a variety of deposits on the teeth as acquired pellicle, bacterial plaque, material alba, dental calculus and stains. The problem manifests as a deposit of inorganic salts composed primarily of calcium carbonate and phosphate mixed with food debris, bacteria and desquarnated epithelial cells which reduce the quality of whiteness and strength of the teeth. Teeth loss is also not uncommon in calculus sufferers. Treatment is simple and involves the removal of calculus which is followed by the resolution of inflammation. Otherwise, further destruction of periodontal membrane and alveolar bone causes the pockets to deepen and the natural termination of the process is loosening and exfoliation of the tooth.

ABSTRACT

The environmental problem in India as well as world is growing rapidly. The main reason behind this is the carelessness of human being towards nature which leads to deterioration of relation between human being and nature. In order to mitigate these environmental problems human being must follow the Ayurvedic philosophy. Acharya Charak has mentioned four factor vayu, jala, desha and kala whose vakrit(abnornmal form) characteristics are considered to be harmful and which in turn results in the form of epidemics. Further He describes adharma as the main reason of this abnormal form of vayu, jala, desh and kala. Therefore it is very essential to show our gratitude to nature and we must care the nature. In addition to this Prakrit loka vayu must be maintained. There are a large number of plants and methods which could be used for purification of air, water, soil etc.
