Abstract

The ear is a complex and sensitive organ in our body. Unfortunately, damage to the organ, whether through any disease, physical insult, long term exposure excessive noise, some drugs or simply the effects of aging, can cause the ear to malfunction. The result of malfunction is usually to produce some degree of deafness. Hearing impairment is affecting more than 360 million persons of the world (5. % of the world’s population). Among them, 328 million (91%) are adult (183 million male and 145 million females) and 32 million (9%) of these are children. In Ayurveda, it can be correlated with Badhirya. Ayurvedic science may help to cure the disease. In Ayurvedic literature, many treatment modalities are mentioned for Badhirya like Snehavirechana, Raktmokshana, Basti Karma, Murdhabasti, Nasya, Dhupana. Raktamokshana is one of the treatment mentioned by Acharyas. According to Acharya Sushruta, vitiated Vatadosha along with Kaphadosha resides in Shabdanu Vaha Sira and leads to Badhirya. Acharya Sushruta has mentioned Rakstmokshana when Vata resides in the Sira and Shirah. So Raktmokshana can play an important role in the management of Badhirya.
