A Clinical Study to Evaluate The Comparative Efficacy of Rudraksha (Elaeocarpus ganitrus) in The Management of Essential Hypertension
In an open clinical trial 25 patients of grade-I and grade-II uncomplicated essential hypertension of either sex aged between 25-70 years, were given Rudraksha (Elaeocarpus ganitrus) Churna in a dose of loomg per kg of body weight per day in two equal divided doses for a duration of 60 days. At the end of trial period their systolic blood pressure was reduced from 148.9 mm of Hg to 132.6 mm of Hg and diastolic blood pressure was reduced from 97.1 mm of Hg to 86.4 mm of Hg. Pulse pressure, mean blood pressure, and various clinical features were also significantly reduced after the therapy. No untoward effects were reported by any patient and their biochemical and haematological parameters also remained with in normal limits, both before and after the therapy. Thus trial drug i.e. Rudraksha may prove an ideal drug for the management of grade-I and grade-II essential hypertension.
This is really painful to a person who is married that he is unable to procreate. The art of love is not only meant to give pleasure to man solely, but also to provide woman, the maximum pleasure and no doubt it is an excellent solution for procreation .This also strengthens the married life. The society usually believes that a man who fails to perform sexual intercourse loses the controlling power over his wife. Most probably this must have been the reason for labeling the failure of erection as IMPOTENCE which means powerlessness. So the erection of penis has become the symbol of manliness. If the man fails to get erection when he attempts sexual intercourse invariably, he perceives the situation as humiliation (insult). Therefore he puts up frantic efforts to make the penis erect. If he fails, he becomes the target of ridicule that he is lacking in manliness Vajikarana a specific branch of Ayurveda not only corrects it, but also provides the ultimate goal of sex i.e. producing physically, mentally healthy offsprings having the quality to survive in this survival of the fittest war.

Preliminary Psychopharmacological Screening Of Marnsyadi Kwatha (An Ayurvedie Formulation) - An Experimental Study
Mamsyadi Kwatha an Ayurvedic formulation stated in Siddha Yoga Sangraha and Bheshaja samhita-Ayurvedic texts is said to be a strong psychopharmacological active formulation. It is indicated in psychiatric disorders. The ingredients are Jatamarnsi(Nordastachys jatammsi), Ashwagandha(Withania somnifera), Parasika yavani(Hyocymus niger)- as ingredients in 8:4:1 ratio respectively. The test formulation is subjected for preliminary psycho pharmacological activities in the present study. The test formulation and the ingredients were subjected for two tests viz gross behaviour and hypnotic potentiation. The experimental study was carried out with two dosing schedules viz acute and chronic study with the dose of Buil/kg/day in mice with four grouping pattern viz Mamsyadi Kwatha group, Jatamamsi Kwatha group, Ashwagandha Kwatha group and Parasika yavani Kwatha group. On both acute (single dose schedule) and chronic(7 days administration of medicine) drug administration "Hypo activity" was observed in Gross Bhaviour Test in all test drug administered groups. Based on this result the drugs are subjected for "Hypnotic Potentiation Test" which is done by using Pentabarbitone. Test formulation Mamsyadi Kwatha and Jatamamsi showed shortening of Pentabarbitone induced sleeping where as Ashwagandha and Parasika Yavani showed moderate and mild prolongation of Pentabarbitone induced sleeping.

A Conceptual Study on Stanyavaha Srotas & Stanavaha Srotas
2012 | April-June | VOLUME - VI | ISSUE - 2
KEYWORDS - Payovahini srotansi, Stanyavahi sira, lactiferous sinus and ducts, Stanya prauritti and Oxytocin
There are two terms have been used by our vaidhya's Stanvaha srotas and Stanyavaha srotas. The Stanavaha srotas which is explained by Sushrut, Sharangdhar and both Vagabhata, is one of the orifice or opening on the body of females and called as Bahirmukh srotas. The 'stana' word actually used for breast or breast tissue. On the other side stanyavaha srotas are the yogavahi srotas, they are milk carrying channels in the breast of lactating mother. The stanyavaha srotas is not explained by any of the ancient scholar directly may be due to their importance discovered only during lactating period. The `Stanyat word as name itself identify that it is used for milk or milk carrying channels. Though Stanyavaha srotas is not describe by our ancients Scholars but its presence is analyzed by many references especially by scholar kashyap, whom clearly mention term `Liciicuill-t i.e. the channels carrying milk during lactation. Also scholars like Sushrut and Harita use term in reference of milk carrying channels, suggesting the presence of Stanyavaha srotas. There are many other references suggesting origin or 'Moola' of Stanyavaha srotas, that is Stanyavaha sira i.e. the milk carrying vessels. Any blockage (due to Stanakilak) or incision (during instrumentation of abscess) of these Stanyavaha siras leads to no milk excretion. According to modern view Stanyavahi sira or Durgdhaharini sira are the mammary ducts, lactiferous sinus and lactiferous ducts in the breast which carry and store some milk during lactation. This has been proved that the concept of stana pravritti by Ancient Aacharya's is very scientific as affection towards child is the cause of milk ejection and in modern Oxyrtocin is key hormone , responsible for love & affection in human being.

Review of Parnabeej a (Bryophyllumpinnata Lamk./kurz)
In Ayurveda, Dravyas in their gross state have been used against specific diseases through the knowledge passed down from one generation to another. Still the majority of the people in the oriental countries are using herbal dravyas as safe & natural remedies for various diseases. Parnabeeja is the such dravya, the nativity of which is doubtful. The plant Parnabeeja (Bryophyllurn pinnata Lamk.) is currently taken by the name Pashanbheda (though Pashanbheda is other dravya), which is distinctly indicating the Lithotriptic property of the plant. This is abundantly found & used in various regions of India by the Pashanbheda with similar indication too.(Bhavprakash Nighantu commentary by K. C. Chunekar).
The plant Parnabeeja is used in folklore medicine as Jakhme-hyat for wound healing & burns externally & for diarrhea, dysentery & Lithiasis internally. (Wealth of India volume I- 233; Flora Indica- II, 413).

Review of Citation by Pandit Yogindranath Sen in "Charakopaskara"
Agniuesha tantra is a classical medical text in the ancient time which is redacted by Acarya Charaka and is known as Charaka Samhita. The incomplete available part of Charaka Samhita was fulfilled by Acarya Drdhabala. In due course of time the book was commented by different scholars for the understanding of the textual matters. The commentary is written with the specific aim to explore particular texts in a descriptive and analytic manner. This is a journey to re-observe the study material in an authentic experimentation and thereby make a conclusion. The extensive multidimensional approach of Charaka Samhita is distinguished by different commentators in a lucid manner and encapsulated the distinct variations of the meaning of the contents in different contexts, and viewed accordingly from the clinical and philosophical angles. Acarya Yogindranatha Sen, in his commentary named 'Charakopaskara', has justified the hidden clinical insights of the everlasting compendium by using a wide-range of contemporary citations in a rational and scientific manner.
The current topic is exploration of the citation made by Acarya Yogindranath Sen in his "Charakopaskara" commentary.
