The condition is stress inducing phenomenon for both parents as well as child. Usually prevalence of bedwetting decreases with age. Bedwetting less than 2 nights per week has a prevalence of 21%, at about 4.5 years, and it is 8% at 9.5 years. A double blind placebo control study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of "Shankhapuspi syrup" a classical Medhya drug formulation mentioned in Ayurvedic literature with clinical protocol for the application of Satwavajaya chikitsa (Counselling). The clinical study was done in 3o patients of bedwetting who were randomly selected from OPD & IPD of Kaumarabhritya department, N.I.A. Jaipur. The drug was administered in the form of syrup at a dose of iml/kg/day in 2 divided doses along with session of Satwavajaya chikitsa for 15 minutes. Similarly placebo was also administered in same dose with Satwavajaya chikitsa and total duration of study was 3 months. After 3 months, significant improvement in all criteria's of assessment fixed for the study was found in trail drug group with highly significant improvement. However placebo group also showed highly significant improvement at the end of the study. Thus Satwavajaya chikitsa is highly effective in reversing the disease pathology and for improvement of Shayyarnutrata with proper counseling of both parents and child.
Arma is a disease of suklamandal of eyes. Acharya sushruta and vagabhatta described it as a chhedan sadhya vyadhi. However in the initial stages of the disease ancient authors had advised application of lekhan anjana i.e. to cure the disease without shalya karma with the help of medicine only.

Applied Anatomy of Annavaha Srotas with special reference to Annadrava Shool
This study started with the aim to define the anatomy of Annavaha Srotas and by the help of anatomy understand the annadrava shoal and the way to prevent this disease in common people. Here I found that Annavaha Sratas is a passage which serves the function of transportation and digestion of Anna (food) considered as upper part of GIT from mouth to small intestine where digestion and absorption occurs. The Amashaya is Moola Sthan of Annavaha Srotas which looks like distended on Varna Parshva when it is filled with food. It is also site for storage of food and its primary digestion so Amashaya can be considered as stomach. Annadrava Shoal and gastric ulcer both occur due to Srotodushti of Moola Sthan of Annavaha Srotas which includes Dushti of Sideshinie Kapha of Am ashaya. Excessive secretion of acid-pepsin can be considered as Vidagdha Pitta having same nature and it is responsible for Annadrava Shool.

In various Ayurvedic texts urolithiasis is correlated with Mutrashmari as per their sign and symptoms. It is considered in eight most troublesome diseases (Ashtmahagada). Mutrashamri is considered in Ashtmahagada because the disease is Tridashaja in origin, Marmaashrayee, Basti(urinary bladder) is the vyaktsthana of Ashmari. Basti comes under Dashvidha Praanayatana and Sadyopraanhara Marma also.On the basis of prognosis of this disease is Krichchhra Sadya and when pain increases (becomes) fatal, it needs surgical treatment. Now-a-days in modern science many treatment are available for the management of this disease like hydropathy and various surgical procedures. But many times they are not able to eradicate the root cause of disease and therefore, recurrence occurs there. The main aim of this article is to explore the scientific basis for Ayurvedic treatment of Mutrashmari with Crataeva Nurvala (Varun) because Ayurvedic drug (substance) may provide maximum advantage with cost efficiency, least side effect and increase patient's fulfillment.

Simple Remedies Of Mustaa (Nut Grass): A Primeval Review
The time honoured Ayurveda science has provide'd many theories and concept for the well being of society. This gifted heritage system of medicine by the ancient Indian sages is gaining importance worldwide due to its novel healing approach. Numbers of simple and cost effective remedies has revealed in ancient classical texts but unfortunately major parts of such novel practices are abandoned nowadays. Present review dealt with some such antique remedial uses of mustaa quoted in various ancient transcripts like veda, puraana along with different classical Ayurveda texts. Mustaa is a common weed of India, botanically identified as C'yperus 1-Mundt's Linn. (Cyperaceae family). The plant has been mentioned in the ancient Ayurveda medicine for treating fevers, digestive system disorders, dysmenorrhoea and many other maladies. Numerous multidrug formulations with mustaa are frequently practiced by various Ayurveda physicians. Researcher of modern alternative medicine has exposed wide-ranging efficacy of this common grass. Still a major portion of novel cost effective remedies cited in ancient Indian transcript need to be heeded. Non-scientific utilization of wild plants has thronged the scarcity of medicinal plants in herbal market. Persistent running of such incident is the future threat of plant based traditional system of medicine like Ayurveda. Hence application of such simple, cost effective remedies based on commonly available herbs donated by ancient sages can combat this burden issue.

Treating the skin disease like Psoriasis is the most challenging job. There are many aggravating factors of disease. Among these, alcohol consumption is one of the most difficult factors to avoid. Patients of Psoriasis who are habitual to alcohol are very difficult to treat because to avoid alcohol is not as simple as to avoid sugar or curd, especially for those who are addicted to it.
