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

2013 | July-September | VOLUME - VII | ISSUE - 3
KEYWORDS - Relapsed malaria, Ayurvedic treatment of malaria, P. vivax, Ayurvedic Diagnosis of Jwara, Putapakva Visham Jwarantaka Loha, Parijatak, Nyctanthus arobortristis. Linn
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.

Chemical Study OfMadhu W.S.R. To It’s Aharaviruddha Swabhava
Madhu is the most important part of Ahara as well as medicine mentioned in Ancient Ayurvedic
texts, with its types and uses. In various types of Aharadravyas are contra indicated with Madhu like Ghrita
Antarikshajala, Pushkerbheeja etc. This contra indication is called viruddhahara. In this study the Viruddha
effect of Madhu with Ghrita, Antarksha jala, Pushker beeja is carried out in my study. There is no evidence
of any physical and chemical changes were found in the chemical analysis of each samples i.e. Madhu : Ghrita,
Madhu : Antarkshajala, Madhu:Pushkerbeeja in the ratio 1:1, 1:2. 2:1 respectively.
Skin is the largest organ of the body and it connected with both external and internal environment
of the body. So the nature of the lesions reflect by both directly. Deferent character of the lesions are
mentioned in the Ayurvedic text and that are the key point for diagnosis.

Clinical evaluation ofChitrakadi Churnacombined with the Kshar Vasti in the Management of Amavata(Rheumatoid Arthritis)
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. Overall effect of therapy was excellent in group-A in which Chitrakadi Churna and Kshar
Basti were given to the patients.

A Study of the Vishaktata (Toxicity) ofMadya (Ethyl Alcohol) on Oja Dhatu in Human Body
2013 | July-September | VOLUME - VII | ISSUE - 3
KEYWORDS - Alcoholism, Madya, Madataya, Oja Dhatu, Toxicity
Alcoholism is a burning issue in developing country like India, as it causes deep health affect in
human being along with social, economic & family disturbance. Hence both Modern Medicine &Ayurvedic
Science has been highlighted the Alcohol & Alcoholism in detail. Ayurveda mentioned that Alcohol act as
nectar, if it consume in proper dose & manner as per suggestion by Ayurveda, but it act as a poison if
consume in inverse way.In this study conceptual & toxic effect were observed on 60 patients of Alcoholism
(20 acute alcoholism and 20 chronic alcoholism and 20 patients of alcohol withdrawal syndrome) were
studied& toxic effect were observed on OjaDhatu. Study revealed that it vitiated Tridosha, Saptadhatu& various
Strotascausing serious illness, as all the properties are similar to poison. As the properties of Alcohol are
opposite to the properties of OjaDhatu (Body Essence), it vitiated & causes Ojavyapad, Ojavistransa &
Ojakshaya. This study revealed that Acute Alcoholism causes Ojavistransa& Chronic causes Ojakshaya while
Ojavyapad found in Alcohol Withdrawal. This study gives serious effort to determine Toxicity of Ethyl Alcohol
(Madya) on OjaDhatu in Human Being.

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
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.
Quality assurance is an integral part of all systems of medicine to ensure quality medicament. Thus,
there is an urgent need to evaluate such parameters which can be adopted by the pharmaceutical industries.
In the communication, attempts have been made to evaluate Vidangadi C?rna, an ayurvedic compound
formulation. Five samples procured from different manufacturers were subjected to physico-chemical
analysis, TLC finger printing, and botanical characterization, and compared using authentic ingredients as
reference. It was observed that the microscopic and chromatographic analyses compliment each other in
their findings, and can be used effectively for the identification of raw materials in the compound formulation.

A cross sectional survey based study on Shwetapradar (vaginal discharge) in the women of reproductive age group.
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
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.
