ABSTRACT

The art of healing of the ailments has been known from the time immemorial. Many indigenous ways and methods have been followed for the relief of suffering of mankind since Vedas. The method of Agnikarma is prevalent in our country since many centuries. Acharya Sushruta has preached, practiced and documented the details of Agnikarma which is followed by many renowned authorities till date. With advent of modern sophisticated surgical techniques the popularity of Agnikarma is declining. Most diseases of present day are due to altered life style. Gridhrasi is one such disease which is gaining prevalence in the present scenario. This condition is a Vātavyādhi which is included under the Mahāgadas1, which itself speaks of its devastating nature. The symptoms of Gridhrasi resemble with that of sciatic pain, which is radiating in nature along the course of the Sciatic nerve. Other clinical features also seem to be agreeing among these two conditions. Sciatica has a life time incidence rate of 13 – 40% and rare in ages below 20, at its peak in the 5th decade and reducing thereafter 2. Various treatment modalities have been mentioned by Ācharyas for Gridhrasi. Among them Agnikarma has been mentioned as superior. Pain is the main symptom of Gridhrasi and Agnikarma helps in painful conditions. As a part of conservative management Eranda Taila Yoga available in Bharatha Bhaishajya rathnakara3 is taken for the trial in the form of internal medication (paana) and enema (basti).

ABSTRACT

Standard quality of drug was always emphasized as an essential requirement of treatment in Ayurveda. Dravya Sampanth was therefore held as one among the Dravya Chatushka. The word Dravya Sampath has been used by our ancient acharyas to describe what is the presently known by the term Standardization. Dravya Sampath or quality drug is the prerequisite for a successful and reliable treatment. It is basic for survival of the system and also a statutory requirement under Drug & Cosmetic Act. Standardization of raw materials is a precursor to the standardization of pharmaceutical preparations. Unfortunately former is the totally neglected side in comparison to the later. Ajmoda, a crude drug mentioned by Maharshi Charaka in Shula parshmana and Dipaniya mahakshaya. It is the drug used in many formulations like Ajamodadi Churna, Hingwadi Churna, Vidangadi Taila, Phala Ghrita, Eladi sarpi, Yograj Guggulu etc. Authentic source of Ajmoda is Carum roxburghianum. (Syn. Trachyspermum roxburghianum). Inspite of so much uses surprisingly in market of different areas different plant species are sold by the name of Ajmoda which causes variable efficacy, It is easy to identify these species from one another by simple procedures. Since crude drugs ultimately used singly or in formulations will affect the health of an individual.
