Abstract

Sandhana Kalpana is very common Kalpana described in Ayurvedic literature. We can found many footprints of Sandhana Kalpana in Vedas also. Asava and Arishta are popularly used in Ayurvedic practice. These preparations occupy unique position in pharmaceutics on account of their superiority to other preparations. Ushirasava is one of the important Asava among them. Ushirasava / Usheerasava is a liquid Ayurvedic medicine used in treatment of bleeding disorders. This medicine is cooling in nature and is prescribed in the diseases which occur due to the excessive heat in body. Hence this medicine pacifies the excess Pitta Dosha in body.
