The incidence is 2 to 7 per1, 00,000children per year. It’s more common in males.Steroids, diuretics and other immuno-suppressive treatment which does not solve the purpose of correction of immune-response. Adverse effect and steroids dependency has been emerged as major hazard.Mainstay of our treatment is corrections and re-modulation of immune system by immuno-modulators.Hence an attempt has been made to find out effective treatment which is devoid of adverse effect and also remove the disease from the root. Material & Methods: StudyType:Randomized Control Trail. Trial period:6 months. Selection of Cases (Source of Data): The study was conducted on patients of age group 2-16 years which were randomly selected from O.P.D/I.P.D. National Institute of Ayurveda Jaipur, Rajasthan. Sample Size: Total 30cases,were randomly divided into two groups. Group A: Given an Indigenous Compound and SthiradiYapanaBastiwith ongoing steroid treatment.Group B: Given ongoing steroid treatment and taken as control group. Results: Extremely significant improvement in all laboratory parameters and symptomology in both the groups. Conclusion: Nephrotic Syndrome can be clinically compared with Ojovayapath, owing to similarity in pathology, symptomatology and clinical presentation. Present study has partially succeeded in fulfilling an alternative treatment modality for Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome and reducing adverse effect of long term steroid therapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: Sthaulya is abnormal and excess accumulation of Medo Dhatu. Meda is the main Dushya and Kapha is the main Dosha of Sthaulya but Sthaulya is a Dushya dominant Vyadhi. Sthaulya is a Santarpanjanya vyadhi so if we treat the Santarpanjanya vyadhi by Apatarpana dravyas, Vyadhi will automatically get treated. To prove this hypothesis a conceptual and clinical and comparative study was performed in the patients of Sthaulya. Aims and Objectives: The study was under taken to prove the principle “Santarpanotthanam-Apatarpanam-Aushadham” clinically in Sthaulya. Materials and Methods: In this clinical study we had randomly allocated 30 patients in to two groups. Group A Vidangadi churna with Purana Madhu Anupana and Group B Medoharalepa (For external use) along with Vidangadi churna were selected for the comparative study in management of Sthaulya. All the patients were reviewed after 15 days for a period of 2 months. Result: In both the group results were significantly improved but in Group B (Where we used Vidangadi churna along with Medohara Lepa) better Improvement was shown than Group A. Discussion & Conclusion: Apatarpana dravyas can be used in Santarpanjanya vyadhi.

ABSTRACT

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a major geriatric problem which is described in Ayurveda classics as Vaatastheela, a one type of Mutraghata (obstructive uropathy). Total twelve types of Mutraghata are described as obstructive uropathy related to either upper or lower urinary tract. The Vatastheela Mutraghata reflects the symptoms of urinary retention, incomplete voiding, distension etc. These are features of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) and can be co-related with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. In modern medicine, various conservative and surgical treatment modalities are available with the varying degree of success rate for the management of LUTS caused by enlarged gland. Similarly in Ayurveda, various researches are going on to find out a suitable and less invasive treatment modality for the same. In Sharangadhar Samhita, Kaanchara Guggulu was mentioned with Granthihar property for the treatment of Granthi. In the Sushruta Samhita, the choice of treatment for Mutraghata is Basti Karma as Shodhan Chikitsa. In this case series 30 well diagnosed cases of BPH were treated with Kaanchanar Guggulu and Yoga Basti Then patients were assessed on the basis of subjective parameters like International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), Quality of Life (QOL) Score and objective parameters like prostate size, post void residual urine volume (PVR) and peak urine flow rate (Qmax). After completion of treatment significant results were observed in both subjective and objective parameters. This case series highlights the fact that the BPH can be managed in Ayurveda by simple and minimal invasive measures.

ABSTRACT

Vision is unarguably the most important of the five senses. Life without sight is unimaginable for those who have savoured the joys of visual splendour of the nature. Hence all sincere efforts should be made by men to protect the eyes, throughout the period of life. Timira is a disease, which starts with simple visual disturbance (avyakta darshana) but if unattended it may lead to complete loss of vision (linganasha). On the basis of similarities in symptoms, involvement of anatomical structures, aetiology and prognosis, timira can be correlated with the refractive errors in general including myopia. Myopia or shortsightedness is a type of refractive error which is highly prevalent ophthalmic disease among the world. In Ayurveda, various treatment formulations are advocated for timira roga for enhancement of vision. Here dashanga haritaki/ triphala modaka was selected for present study along with local therapy of akshi tarpana with triphala ghrita. The clinical study was conducted on 30 subjects who were clinically diagnosed as timira (myopia) belonging to the age group of 8 to 40 year and randomly divided into two groups. For the diagnosis of timira subjective parameters like Avyakta-rupa-darshana (indistinct distance vision), Vihwala-darshana (blurred vision), Shirobhitapa (Headache), Netrayasa (Eye strain) and objective parameters like Visual Acuity/LogMAR, Value Autorefractometry/Retinoscopy, Keratometry, Ophthalmoscopy and A scan were used. The study was found to be very effective in controlling of myopia especially of low grade.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda being the most ancient and prestigious health science always incorporates all the rules and supporting lifelines to make the science more accurate and reachable. As Anurjata (Allergy) is considered as unprecedential disease in Ayurveda but severeralindirect references in pranavahasrotas diseases like Svasa and Pratishyaya and Rasavahasrotas like Tvagvikara indicate that probably Anurjata was prevalent in very remote population because of the healthy lifestyle and clean environment. In other words Anurjata can be rated as one of the most dreadful gift of civilization and urbanization. So a little effort has been done in the context of standardization. This is the most comprehensive cooperative effort that has ever been developed in the field of technology and now the other name of quality services in all sectors of life including health sciences. Reproducibility is mandatorily to be achieved in reasoning and that is impossible without standardization of a. Standardization is now seen as a fundamental prerequisite to scientific medical practice. Standardization in the ayurvedika therapeutics is a very challenging task as all the evaluation is completely based on keen observations only.
