Abstract

Rasashastra, the Iatrochemistry of Ayurveda deals with therapeutic processing and use of various minerals and metals. Different types of Ashmarighna formulations ranging from herbal to mineral have been described in Ayurvedic classical texts. The formulations containing herbal drugs only have shown limited success that too requiring prolonged medication. Most of the times, patients seek surgical intervention as the final resort. So, there is a need to evaluate and validate the mineral and herbo-mineral preparations indicated for Mutrashmari (urinary calculi) in Ayurveda. Pashanavajra Rasa, a herbo-mineral preparation prescribed for Mutrashmari is mentioned in Ayurveda. It contains Kajjali which acts like catalyst, Punarnava and Pashanabheda as Ashmarihara, seems to be a product with high potential but less evaluated.
