Abstract

Grahani is the seat of Agni and it is so called because of holding up the food. The term Grahani Dosha implies the malfunctioning of Agni. Improper digestion of ingested food causes Grahani Dosha. If left untreated it finally leads to Grahani Roga. Muhurbadha and Muhurdrava Mala Pravrutti is the main Lakshana and associated with symptoms like Udarashoola, Arochaka, Sharirika Balakshaya, Asthi Parvashoola, Avipaka etc. As Agnimandya is the main cause, the first line of treatment is to correct the Dusti of Agni. Shuntyadi kashaya and Mustakadi churna have the qualities of deepana, pachana, grahi, etc and can be used in sarvagrahanichikitsa. This study is undertaken to clinically analyze the independent effect of Shuntyadi Churna and Mustakadi Churna in Grahani Roga. The study shows that both Shuntyadi Churna and Mustakadi Churna are effective in relieving the symptoms of Grahani Roga.
