Jadhav <p><em>Apabahuka </em>is a<em> Vatavyadhi</em>, localizing around the<em> Amsapradesh </em>and thereby causing of<em> Amsa Bandha </em>as well<em> Aakuncana </em>of<em> Sira </em>leading to symptoms like<em> Bahupraspandita Hara</em>.<em> Amsashosha </em>can be considered as the preliminary stage of the disease where loss or dryness of the<em> Shleshakakapha </em>from the shoulder joint occurs. In the next stage, due to the loss of<em> Shleshakakapha </em>symptoms like pain during movement, restricted movement are manifested. <em>Vatagajankusha Rasa </em>with<em> Pippali Churna </em>and<em> Manjisthakwatha </em>as<em> Anupana </em>is mentioned in the treatment of<em> Apabahuka </em>under the<em> Vatavyadhichikitsa</em>. The duration of intervention is 7 days as per the reference. Hence this study is intended to validate the same.<strong> Objective: </strong>Considering the prevalence, and lifestyle effect on patients, to evaluate the effectiveness of<em> Vatagajankusa Rasa </em>and<em> Manjisthakashaya, Pippali Churna </em>in<em> Apabahuka</em>. (Frozen Shoulder). <strong>Methodology: </strong>Among 34 registered subjects 28 completed the course of treatment. They were administered with<em> Vatagajankusha Rasa </em>(125mg) with<em> Pippali Churna </em>(3gm) and<em> Manjishta Kwatha </em>(15ml) as<em> Anupana </em>before food twice daily for a period of 7 days. For statistical analysis subjective and objective parameters were assessed by Wilcoxon signed rank, McNemar test and paired T test. <strong>Result:</strong> In the parameters of<em> Apabahuka, </em>the intervention was found to be statistically significant in relieving the assessment parameters like<em> Amsa Sandhi Shoola, Bahupraspandita Hara </em>(p &lt; 0.005). In Objective parameters like ROM of Shoulder significant relief was observed after statistical analysis. <strong>Conclusion: </strong><em>Vatagajankusha Rasa </em>with<em> Pippali Churna </em>and<em> Manjishta Kwatha </em>as<em> Anupana </em>is effective in the management of symptoms of<em> Apabahuka</em></p> 2023-01-16T06:56:50+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Muzammil Kamatagi, Lakshmiprasad L.

Among the different types of <em>Arshas</em> explained by the Acharya Sushruta the <em>Lakshanas</em> of <em>Bahya Arshas</em> is looks similar to the structural presentation of the Sentinel pile. This condition, even though rarely fatal, gives more trouble to the sufferer and pose great difficulty for treatment. As we know the Sentinel pile is guarding to the fissure not to heal so keeping in view this clinical study <em>Agnikarma </em>with <em>Panchaloha Shalaka</em> and Electric Cautery was selected to give new dimension in the management of sentinel pile. <strong>Methodology - </strong>A comparative clinical study was done on forty subjects of both sexes, between the age group of 20-60 years who were randomly assigned into two groups, namely group A where <em>Agnikarma</em> by <em>Panchalaoha Shalaka</em> was used to the subjects and group B where <em>Agnikarma</em> by Electric Cautery was used to the subjects. After completion of the study, results were assessed using ‘Wilcoxon signed rank test’ for Single group and ‘Mann-whitney u-test’ for comparative Analysis for collected during the study. <strong>Result</strong> <strong>-</strong> Statistically Both group proved to be equally Significant. But according to the relief got by the patients Group-A proved to be more effective than group-B.&nbsp; Group-A overall result is 95.71% and Group-B overall result is 91.79%.</p> 2023-01-16T07:04:26+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Anandkumar C, C Thyagaraja Therapeutic trial of an Ayurvedic compound in Madhumeha (Diabetes Mellitus) 2023-01-24T11:46:34+00:00 Anita Bhardwaj Deepak kumar Sharma <p>Diabetes mellitus has been emerged as one of the major health problems, which is found commonly all over the world. In Ayurveda, inclusion of <em>Madhumeha</em>, in eight major diseases (<em>Ashthamahagada</em>) indicates the gravity and significant attributed to it. In this study a comparative trial between an Ayurvedic compound (<em>Kalpit</em>) named as <em>Madhudaman Yoga</em>, and Glipizide as control drug was carried out. 50 patients of Diabetes mellitus were registered from the OPD and IPD of NIA, Jaipur for this study. These patients were divided into two groups.&nbsp; Group A (control drug) – 25 patients took Glipizide 5 mg twice daily for 75 days. Group B (trial drug) - 25 patients took 2 capsules of <em>Madhudaman Yoga</em> 500 mg, twice daily for 75 days. At the end of the study it was observed that the trial drug showed significant improvement in FBS, PPBS, and HbA1c (p&lt;0.001). Significant relieves in many symptoms were also observed. The overall effect of <em>Madhudaman Yoga</em> was approximately similar to that of the control drug.

The thyroid gland is a small approximately two inches butterfly shaped gland, situated in the anterior aspect of the throat regulates the way the body uses its energy, including the way how one’s heart beats. The normal functioning of this organ is very crucial for the metabolic homeostasis of the body. The rapid changes in the lifestyle and stressful life events are leading to the major disturbance of the normal metabolic functions of the human body, in Ayurveda the signs and symptoms of Hypothyroidism may be superficially compared to <em>Atihraswa</em> (dwarfism) and <em>Atisthula</em> (Obesity), but apart from this also, based on the other visible signs and symptomatology, the disease may be understood and treated accordingly. It is also can be considered as an <em>Santarpanotta Vikara</em>, since most of the <em>Santarpanotta Vikara’s</em> share common etio-pathogenesis. The <em>Panchakarma</em> treatment is known for removing the morbidity deeply from the body, and restores metabolic homeostasis. With this approach the current study was designed to observe the efficacy of <em>Nityananda Ras</em>, which is indicated in the <em>Shlipada Adhikara</em> of <em>Bhaishajya Ratnavali</em>, in the management of HT, and also in comparison with <em>Nasya Karma</em>, since the nasal administration of medicine is the best root for the elimination of the diseases of Head and neck. This research has shown the <em>Nityanand Ras</em>, is found effective and in the <em>Nasya</em> with <em>Jeerna Karakaruka Swarasa</em> group patients the results were encouraging in comparing with <em>Nityanand Ras.</em></p> 2023-01-16T07:15:04+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Chandrika Kuraakula, Srikanth Babu Perugu Effect of Dhatakyadi Oil on Upapluta Yoni Vyapad with special reference to Candida albicans 2023-01-24T15:06:35+00:00 Animesh Maiti <p><em>Upapluta Yoni Vyapad </em>has mentioned in many Samhita.

Prevalence of PMS is 47.8% in world-wide and in India it is 43%. It is mainly affecting mental health of the women, and quality of life of the women so this research was planned to explore the severity of the premenstrual syndrome and to evaluate the impact of PMS on Women mental health. <strong>Materials &amp; Methods:</strong> Among 160 females, 130 females enrolled in the study based on criteria. The data was collected through Google form which was prepared based on PSST (premenstrual Symptom Screening Tool) Scale. <strong>Results:</strong> One hundred and twenty-two participants reported at least three somatic and two affective symptoms. 34.7% participants mentioned that PMS affects their quality of life. 30.3% participants reported mild, 24.6% female reported moderate, 10.7% reported severe and 7.4 % stated very severe. PMS significantly having relation with occupation, stress, and physical exercise. 57% participants reported that they are stressed due to any personal/ occupational issues. The participants who are doing regular exercise/ yoga are having less severity of symptoms compared to other participants. <strong>Discussion:</strong> This study reveals that PMS is common in almost all females but degree of severity differs. It affects both mental and physical health and also quality of life of the women. By this study additional thing we found that women who practice yoga, <em>Pranayama</em>, any physical exercise have less severity of premenstrual symptoms.</p> 2023-01-17T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Suma Rajaput, Sandeep Sagare, Anju Yadav, Arpit Sah Antinociceptive activity of Karpasa Beeja 2023-01-25T07:35:02+00:00 Abhiram L. <p><strong>Background: </strong><em>Karpasa Beeja </em>(cotton seeds) is a drug which is been used since <em>Samhita </em>period<em>,</em> it has <em>Vatahara</em> and <em>Vedanasthapana</em> properties. <em>Acharya Charaka</em> includes <em>Karpasa</em> in <em>Brimhaniya Gana </em>while <em>Acharya Susruta</em> includes it in <em>Vatasamsamana Varga. </em>Cotton seeds are a rich source of cattle feed. It is also widely used in preparation of Ayurvedic medicines. The present study is highly relevant in searching experimentally for its Anti-nociceptive activity in cotton seeds and its pharmacognostical, phytochemical, HPLC+TLC profile. <strong>Aim and objective: </strong>An experimental evaluation of <em>Karpasa beeja</em> for its Antinociception activity.<strong> Results: </strong>Acetic acid induced writhing test, mice was treated with paracetamol (72.5mg/Kg) and test <em>Karpasa Beeja</em> drug <em>Kashaya </em>(12.48ml/kg,) and distilled water as control group in a dose of 1ml. The efficacy of test substances for analgesic activity was evaluated in the swiss albino mice. The analgesic activity of <em>Karpasa Beeja Kashaya</em> was studied in swiss albino mice by administering the test substance orally. The writhing effect was induced by 1% V/V glacial acetic acid solution in mice pre-treated with test substance. The number of abdominal writhing were measure over 20 min after injection of acetic acid. Finally, percentage inhibition was calculated.<strong> Conclusion: </strong>In this test substance it is found that the percentage inhibition of pain is 38.89 % hence it can be concluded that the test substance is known to possess analgesic activity.</p> 2023-01-17T17:42:26+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Abhiram L.

Diagnosis in health care is among the most important processes since the protocol for the patient treatment depends on this step. WHO recently prioritized patient safety areas in primary care and included diagnostic errors as a high-priority problem. Most people will likely experience a diagnostic error in their lifetime. Despite of extensive investigation understanding the etiopathogenesis still remain elusive in contemporary practice. The time pressure often involved in clinical appointments also contribute to challenge in the clinical history &amp; interview. Though diagnostic error is frequent in contemporary practice but still represent an underemphasized &amp; understudied area of patient safety. Defeating and dissecting diagnostic error is the need of era which can be challenged by understanding as well as implementing the principles of <em>Nidana Panchaka</em> as per <em>Ayurvedic</em> Perspective. Developing and validating diagnostic tools for disease enumerated in <em>Ayurvedic</em> classical texts can help in standardizing the clinical approach even when attempting to arrive at a patient specific diagnosis. The author has made an attempt to explore the concept of five basic diagnostic protocol under the heading <em>Pancha Nidana</em> and its relevancy in contemporary clinical practice.</p> 2023-01-18T13:59:54+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Prof. Kshirabdhi Tanaya Rautaray, Shiva Prasad Mohanty Contribution of Sushruta towards Anatomy 2023-01-28T12:21:20+00:00 Ashok Naikar Savita Renuka Gururaj Anilkumar Baccha <p><em>Sushruta</em> a surgeon of ancient Indian medicine has made significant contributions to various branches of <em>Ayurveda</em>. <em>Sushruta</em> a father of Indian surgery.

The main purpose of preventive attributes prescribed in Ayurveda is to improve immunity. If the power of the body to fight against the disease is less, various disease occurs and if the same is great, disease will not occurs or if occurs they were be of mild in nature. In present era due to modern dietary and life style factors there is rapid rise in immune disorders worldwide. The purpose of this review is to focus the light of <em>Ayurvedic</em> concepts in the modulation of immune system which is necessary to live a healthy life. The brief literary review of the <em>Ayurvedic</em> concept like <em>Dinacharya, Ritucharya, Sadvrutta, Pathya Apathya, Rasayana, Ahara Vidhi Vidhana</em>, <em>Panchakarma </em>etc. which are essential in modulating immune system are taken from <em>Ayurvedic</em> texts and relevant journals for this study.</p> 2023-01-18T18:45:13+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Nandini R.

According to the <em>Ayurveda</em> ones who consume <em>Viruddha Ahara</em> are prone to many disorders. According to <em>Acharya Charak</em> those food substances and combinations, which induce deteriorating action on the body tissues, that is, <em>Dhatus</em> can be called as <em>Viruddha Ahara</em>. <em>Acharya Charaka</em> also pointed out the eighteen dietetic incompatibilities that generate the toxins responsible for generating the pathogenesis systematically or less commonly localized. <strong>Objective:</strong> To conclude the association of <em>Virudhha Ahar</em> with disease in the individual who consume these incompatible foods with short and long duration. <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> A through search of modern medicine and <em>Ayurvedic</em> literature through free searching engine like PubMed and Google Scholar are used. Relevant results analysed and draw the conclusion. <strong>Results:</strong> Many studies held in <em>Ayurvedic</em> Institutions in India regarding the <em>Viruddh Ahar </em>mostly arrived on the conclusion that combinations of certain food items cause certain disease. Even for taking chronically this may cause cancer also. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> There is great need of checking and proving facts enumerated in the old text regarding the <em>Viruddha Ahar </em>based on the evidence based Modern medicine. So that it can be applied in modern medicine also. However, In <em>Ayurvedic</em> discipline the <em>Viruddha Ahar</em> certainly cause the disease depending on the nature, amount, frequency, duration and immunity status of the individual approved in many <em>Ayurvedic</em> studies.</p> 2023-01-18T18:49:59+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Dezy Singh, Ramesh Chand Tiwari, Manisha Dikshit, Ved Bhushan Sharma, Bhawana Mittal Literary Review on Adharneeya Vega w.s.r. to Physiology 2023-01-29T17:52:12+00:00 Aakriti Jamwal Komal Samyal Sourabh Sharma <p><em>Ayurveda is</em> an ancient system of medicine which is not merely used in conventional sense of curing diseases, though also teaches us way of life and how to preserve and protect health.

In hereditary diseases are disease which is caused by abnormal <em>Shukra</em> and <em>Shonita. </em>Concept of <em>Beejbhaag </em>also mentioned in <em>Ayurveda</em> scientific study on genetics started since ancient time. <em>Doshas</em> dominating the <em>Shukra</em> and <em>Shonita </em>during the time of conception and also inhabiting the uterus at that time determines the <em>Prakriti</em> of the individual. The <em>Doshas</em> that ultimately emerge as dominant factors actually determine the <em>Prakriti</em>. Season also indirectly serves as one of the important factor for the determination of <em>Prakriti</em> in as much as they also aggravate <em>Doshas </em>in the <em>Shukra Shonita</em>. <em>Ayurveda</em> mentioned different diseases like <em>Sthaulya</em> (obesity), <em>Klaibya</em> (impotence), <em>Prameha</em> (diabetes) etc. which is due to defect in genetic component of a person. <em>Prakriti</em> (different types of personality) is also mentioned as concept of genetics. Present article through some glimpses on various concepts of genetics in <em>Ayurveda</em>. The modern medical science also recognizes these three terms exp:-<em>Adibalapravrtta</em>, <em>Janmabalapravrtta</em>, and <em>Kulaja</em>. Hereditary signifies conditions, transmitting through defects in the DNA of genes, congenital, implies the abnormalities present at birth.

We don’t need a bag full of medication to heal our body; all we need is to focus on what type of diet we should consume. If healthy food consumed and metabolized properly, it improves the quality and span of life. Due to fast paced life, there has been a major shift in diet pattern and increase in consumption of incompatible food. The substances which are contrary to <em>Sharir Dhatus</em> behave opposite to them. This antagonism may be in terms of properties, combination, processing, place, time, dose etc. or natural composition. ‘<em>Viruddh Aahar’</em> is considered as the incompatible food i.e., the wrong combination of food which when consumed can cause disturbances in the normal physiological functioning and metabolism of body starting at the molecular level. In this paper we are going to infer the result that consumption of <em>Viruddh Aahar</em> can cause <em>Rakta Dushti</em> in human body. Also, how we can analyze it from the modern point of view through the concept of free radicals.</p> 2023-01-19T02:47:50+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tanvi Gusain, Brijendra Singh Tomar, Satbir Kumar Chawla Role of Ritushodhana in Prevention of Cancer - A Conceptual Review 2023-01-30T14:51:07+00:00 Prabhu C Nagalapur C. S. Karamudi <p><strong>Background:</strong> Health is wealth and is achieved only through practicing of Preventive medicine. But Human beings are working beyond their capacity to achieve their goals with tremendous work pressure and regardless of time neglecting their health. All these developments are taking human away from nature and causing change in food and life style leading to non-communicable disorders. In present era Cancer is the most common threatening disease which is having multi-factorial and diverse kind of etiopathogenesis. The cancer incidence in India is estimated to be 19 to 20 lakhs, according to a study by FICCI and EY. <em>Panchakarma</em> or <em>Shodhana Upakrama</em> is the only one which helps to nourish the body tissue along with rejuvenating effect. Cancer is one of the disease conditions requiring rejuvenation and <em>Shodhana</em> effect simultaneously. <strong>Aim:</strong> To review and analyze the role of <em>Ritushodhana</em> in prevention of Cancer. Materials and <strong>Methods:</strong> Review of classical textual data was gathered from <em>Bruhatrayis</em> and texts of contemporary sciences with related articles published was done to analyze the benefit of <em>Ritushodhana </em>on Cancer. <strong>Discussion:</strong> Procedures like <em>Vamana</em> may help in preventing occurrence of lung and oesophageal cancers, <em>Virechana</em> in liver and stomach cancers, <em>Basti</em> in colon and bone cancers, <em>Nasya</em> in oral, head and neck cancers by detoxifying, eliminating the carcinogens and rejuvenating the cells. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> <em>Shodhana</em> in appropriate seasons helps to expel <em>sanchita Malas</em> by not allowing carcinogens to impeach in the body which may prevent the occurrence of Cancer.</p> 2023-01-19T02:53:22+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Prabhu C Nagalapur, C.

However, in the recent years the prevalence of Diabetes is on rise, more upsetting in developed countries. It is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world. The global prevalence of Diabetes among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014. In India cases of Diabetes Mellitus has shown surprisingly higher susceptibility which is a matter of great concern. The prevalence of Diabetes in India is currently reported to be around 13-15% and by the year 2025 it is estimated that approximately 55 million Indians will be diabetic. In modern era due to total sedentary life, having a lot of junk foods and weight gaining these are the main factors which are responsible for causing Diabetes mellitus.

Spider venom is of two types neurotoxic and cytotoxic. Black widow or hour glass spider (cytotoxic) and violin spider or brown recluse (cytotoxic) produces severe toxicity, and act on the myoneural junction or peripheral nerve endings causing ascending motor paralysis or damage to peripheral nerve endings. Death may occur because of infection rather than venom. In <em>Ayurveda Visha</em> mainly classified as <em>Sthavar</em> and <em>Jangam.
