Clinical efficacy ofHaridradi Taila Basti in Orthostatic Hypotension in Diabetic Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy

2013   |   July-September   |   VOLUME - VII   |   ISSUE - 3

ABSTRACT

The study was undertaken to study difference in Orthostatic Hypotension in diabetic neuropathy (cardiac autonomic neuropathy) by giving Haridradi Taila basti. Haridradi Taila from Yogaratnakara Prameha – Chikitsadhikara is selected because uncontrolled Diabetes mellitus increases the risk of complications like diabetic – cardiac autonomic neuropathy. In Ayurveda untreated / neglected prameha is said to progress to Prameha- Upadravas. This similar nature of the disease facilitates their co- relation. Orthostatic Hypotension is a cardinal symptom of Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy Cardiac autonomic neuropathy leads to ischaemia or infarction by reducing the coronary perfusion pressure during orthostatic hypotension so this symptom should be managed. The phenomenon of the reversibility of diabetic neuropathy syndromes has been appreciated in case of visceral manifestation like orthostatic hypotension. The effect on Orthostatic Hypotension of the Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy patients was assessed along with other symptoms like lightheadedness, fading vision pallor, tremor, weakness or even syncope. All symptoms were given scoring depending upon their severity from 0 to 4. The scores were subjected to ‘t’ test. Our experience with treatment modalities has been encouraging yet the response pattern is quite different.

ABSTRACT

Malaria is one of the commonest protozoal infections. Though complete cure of Malaria is possible using modern medicines, situation becomes difficult in patients showing intolerance to these drugs. This patient (80 years old male) of relapsed P. vivax malaria was diagnosed as a case of rasa medogata tridoshaja trutiyaka vishama Jwara. In view of the age, bala and intolerance to chloroquine it was different case. Patient received no antimalarials and was treated with ayurvedic drugs - fresh paste of parijatak (Nyctanthus arobortristis. Linn), combination of putapakva vishama jwarantaka loha, mahasudarshana ghana and guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia. Linn). This patient showed complete remission within six days with no recurrence till death (up to 2.5 years). Ayurvedic medicines can be of great help in such cases and may be useful in not only for treating malaria but also in avoiding recurrences.

ABSTRACT

The changing life style of human being by means of dietetic and behaviour pattern plays a major role in the manifestation of several disorders. Thus, this type of pattern may also lead to the development of the disease Amavata. The disease rheumatoid arthritis can be presented as very similar to Amavata. The disease R.A. is chronic in nature and affects mostly the middle aged group. It is one of the common debilitating disease by virtue of its chronicity and implications. The onset of disease is frequent during 4th and 5th decade of life with 80% of patients disease between 35-50 years of age. A total 30 patients of Amavata were randomly selected for the present study, from the Kayachikitsa OPD and IPD of National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur.

Menstruation & Prakriti

2013   |   July-September   |   VOLUME - VII   |   ISSUE - 3

KEYWORDS -

ABSTRACT

The menstrual cycle is a cycle of physiological changes that occurs in fertile females. A woman’s first menstruation is termed as menarche, and occurs typically around the age of 12. The end of a woman’s reproductive phase is called the menopause which commonly occurs somewhere between the ages of 45 and 55. The menstrual cycle can be divided into several different phases viz; Proliferative phase, Follicular phase,Ovulation & the Luteal phase. In Ayurveda, prakriti represents the physical and mental constitution of an individual. Ayurveda believes that the temperament of a human being is genetic in origin. Prakriti, or constitution, is formed at the time of union of sperm and ovum inside the womb depending upon the predominance of ‘Tridoshas’, five ‘elements’ and the three ‘gunas’. According to Acharya Charak human beings are classified in to three categories, Vataj, Pittaj & Kafaj prakriti. In this study total 200 healthy females were selected, 100 from the hot clemate & 100 from the cold climate. Each of the 100 females were divided in to further three categories i.e. in the first age group of 12 years to 16 years, second group of 17 years to 40 years and the third group from 41 to 50 years. First of all Prakriti of selected females were evaluated and then the relation of Prakriti with the quantity, color, duration and length of periods of menstruation cycle was established.

Toxicity Study Of Lauha BhasmaW.S.R To Biochemical Parameters

2013   |   July-September   |   VOLUME - VII   |   ISSUE - 3

KEYWORDS - Lauha Bhasma, toxicity study, therapeutic dose, biochemical parameters.
PDF
ABSTRACT

The rationale of therapeutic index of Ayurvedic medicines specifically containing metals and minerals is a burning matter of debate worldwide. On the basis of modern scientific knowledge it is claimed that consumption of such material is toxic for human biological system. But as in Ayurveda instead of using metal in a purest form, a transmutation of process by means of Shodhana (purification), Marana (incineration), Amritikarana (Nectarization) etc. are advocated incorporating the metal with certain other substances rendering it suitable for bodily assimilation as well as made them free from any toxic materials, if present. These traditional facts are mentioned in classical treatise and needs to be validated for better acceptability. In the present research work, chronic toxicity study of Lauha bhasma has been carried out at varying dose level viz. therapeutic dose ( T.D.), intermediate dose (5 times to T.D.) and highest dose (10 times to T.D.) given for duration of 60 days in wistar strain of albino rats. In the chronic study it was observed that Lauha bhasma was not found to be toxic to the biological system, however, a dose dependant altered physiological changes were pronouncedly observed in the group treated with highest dose i.e. 10 times to T.D.

ABSTRACT

Shwetapradar (Vaginal discharge) is an excessive secretion from the female reproductive tract especially from the vagina or cervix or both. It is characterized by white to brown coloured, thin or thick, foul smelling fluid and itching, associated with considerable health and economic costs. Aims & Objective: To know the prevalence and risk factors of Shwetapradar ( vaginal discharge) among the reproductive age group women and the socio-demographic factors influencing the occurrence of the disease. Design: A cross sectional descriptive qualitative and quantitative survey among 200 women of 20- 50 years, from the OPD of Stree Roga and Prasutitantra Department, I.P.G.T. & RA, GAU, Jamnagar. They were interviewed and observed in Stree Roga and Prasutitantra Department. Method: Direct personal interviews using semi-structured questionnaires consisting of open and closed ended questions and non-participatory observations were used to Collect data from informants. Results: Thick, curdy white, and cottage cheese vaginal discharge (60%). yeasty smell of discharge (21%), Vaginal itching (90%) are the commonest vulvovaginal features. Vaginal douches (7.5%), Tampons (2.5%), Antibacterial soaps (10%) & Perfumes (1%) Alpashan (31%), Atimatrabhojan (24.5%), Adhyashan (27%), Chinta (88%) krodha in 67%, Shoka in 59%, Tanava in 48.5%, are the major risk factors for pathogenesis of vaginal discharge . Interpretation & conclusion: The study showed high prevalence of vaginal discharge. The asymptomatic women having discharge are less likely to seek treatment for the morbidity and thus are more likely to acquire other STIs. Women attending various healthcare facilities should be screened and treated for vaginal discharge to reduce the risk of acquisition of other STIs.
