Abstract

Recurrent tonsillitis is commonly seen in children and this has many adverse effects on the normal growth and development of the child, missing of school days, economic burden of treatment etc. are few to name. About 30 million children develop tonsillitis with frequent exposure to bacterial and viral infections. The chronic tonsillitis wherein the tonsil gland gets inflamed and enlarged repeatedly, after treatment the size remains same though the inflammation subsides. This leads to obstruction in the throat both to airways as well as digestive tract. According to Ayurvedic classics, various internal medicines and procedures are advocated in the management of Mukharogas. In general, the drugs selected for treatment should have Lekhana, Shothahara, Pachana, Ropana, Rakthashambana and Vedanasthapana properties. One such polyherbal preparation is Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha mentioned in Svayathu Chikitsa by Acharya Vagbhata, which is widely used in clinics for management of Tundikeri. In the present scenario scientific validation about the success of these treatments is required. Therefore an open label clinical study was designed to prove the effect of Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha in Tundikeri. Materials and Methods: An open trial single group clinical study with minimum of 30 patients between the age group of 5 to 15 years with Tundikeri over a period of 30 days. Result: The clinical    study showed highly significant results in relieving the clinical signs and symptoms of Tundikeri. Discussion: The Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha was found therapeutically effective and safe to be administered in children and the mode of action was elaborated to substantiate the results.
