In <em>Ayurvedic</em> literature, this disease is mentioned as one of the ‘<em>Ashtamahagadas</em>’<strong><sup>[1]</sup></strong> and difficult to cure. Nearly 45% of patients attending ano-rectal clinics suffer from the symptoms of <em>Arsha</em>. Vitiation of <em>Doshas</em> adversely affects the digestive fire resulting in <em>Mandagni</em> which in turn lead to constipation. Prolonged contacts of accumulated <em>Mala</em> or excretory material taint <em>Gudavali</em> resulting in <em>Arshas</em>.<strong><sup>[2]</sup> </strong><em>Acharya Charaka</em> explains <em>Arsha</em> as an abnormal fleshy growth at anorectal region whereas at other sites it is called as <em>Adhimamsa</em>.<strong><sup>[3]</sup> </strong>In spite of progress in modern medicine, there is very little scope in terms of treatment of Hemorrhoids, Surgical techniques of performing hemorrhoidectomy are many and their complications such as pain, anal incontinence, stricture etc. are well known. All these modern surgical &amp; Para surgical techniques are associated with post-operative complications which may be early complications such as hemorrhage, secondary infection etc., &amp; late complications such as anal stricture. Anal incontinence, profuse watery discharge etc.,<strong><sup>[4] </sup></strong>Hence, in the present study a special emphasis will be made by selecting noninvasive, effective and economic therapeutic modality which has been explained with great details in ancient <em>Ayurvedic</em> <em>Samhitas</em> for the management of <em>Arsha</em> with different type of <em>Lepa</em> which is a painless simple procedure.</p> 2023-09-01T07:00:41+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pankaj Kumar Yadav, Ankita Chitragupt Therapeutic efficacy of Agnimantha Patra Swarasa Bhavita Shilajatu in Sthoulya 2023-09-12T11:37:10+00:00 Reethapriya B.R J.C.Huddar Pushpa Biradar <p><em>Sthoulya</em> is burning issue in today’s era.

(Asteraceae) is a well-known plant for its antihypertensive, antioxidant, antidiabetic, aphrodisiac, and hepatoprotective properties. To investigate the pharmacognostic, physicochemical, and phytochemical determinations of this plant's leaves. <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> The macroscopic characteristics of the leaves, such as size, colour, surface characteristics, texture, fracture characteristics, and odour, were studied pharmacognostically. The cellular characteristics of the drug were studied using a microscope on both the intact leaves and the powdered drug. According to WHO guidelines, extractive values, loss on drying (LOD), total ash, water-soluble and acid-insoluble ash, and moisture content of <em>Tagetes erecta </em>leaves powder were determined. For the various phytoconstituents, preliminary phytochemical screening and qualitative chemical examination studies have been conducted. <strong>Results:</strong> TLC analysis revealed the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, steroids, saponins, and tannins. Microscopic examination revealed the presence of xylem vessels, vascular bundles, and phloem fibres. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> To authenticate, standardise, and avoid adulteration in the raw material, pharmacognostical and preliminary phytochemical screening of <em>Tagetes erecta</em> leaves will be beneficial. The diagnostic microscopic characteristics and physicochemical data will aid in the creation of a monograph. The chromatographic fingerprinting profile can be used to standardise <em>Tagetes erecta</em> leaf extracts and formulations.</p> 2023-09-01T07:59:33+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pankaj Chaudhary Clinical study to evaluate the efficacy of Mentosoothe Compound in the management of Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder 2023-09-10T15:04:41+00:00 Shraddha Kumawat Rakesh Kumar Nagar Vishal Nandlal Prajapati <p><strong>Introduction: </strong>DSM-5 defines Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder as having a persistent pattern of hyperactivity or inattention. This affects social, emotional, cognitive, and academic performance, behavioural skills in children and adolescents. The suffering child should have more than 6 symptoms of a particular type. Due to aetiology of&nbsp;&nbsp; <em>Dhee Dhriti </em>and <em>Smriti, </em>which results in imbalance of <em>Kala </em>and <em>Karma </em>and leads to incorrect interaction of the senses with their aims (<em>Asatmyendriyartha Samyoga), </em>gives rise to inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Considering the nature of symptomatologic manifestation, it can be correlated with <em>Unmada, </em>more specifically<em> Vata-Pittaja Unmada. </em>Ayurveda addresses ADHD with both internal medicines and external therapies. Mentosoothe compound is such a polyherbal compound it contains <em>Medhya, Balya, Deepana </em>and<em> Rasayana</em> drugs in extract form<em>.</em> <strong>Aim </strong>of the present study to evaluate the efficacy of mentosoothe compound in the management of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. <strong>Objective </strong>of the study is to promote cognitive performance with improvement in the quality of life by providing an effective and safe treatment option. <strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>The present study will be conducted as a randomized clinical study including minimum 40 patients, divided into two groups. Mentosoothe compound A and Mentosoothe compound B will be given to groups with fixed dosages. Assessment will be done on every 15<sup>th </sup>day during 2 months of clinical trial and final follow up will be done one month after completion of clinical trial. <strong>Result: </strong>&nbsp;The results will give the data on comparative effectiveness of the Mentosoothe compounds on ADHD. <strong>Discussion and Conclusion: </strong>The outcome of this trial will render a way forward to effective management of ADHD in children.</p> 2023-09-01T08:10:09+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Shraddha Kumawat, Rakesh Kumar Nagar, Vishal Nandlal Prajapati A review study on Jaal and it’s Modern Correlation 2023-09-10T16:33:53+00:00 Pooja B. Chavan Gopal B. Sharma <p>The <em>Rachana Sharir</em> is branch of <em>Ayurveda</em> in which human anatomy is explained according to <em>Ayurved Samhita</em>. The knowledge of human anatomy is very much important for treatment of disease and other surgical procedures. <em>Paribhasha Sharir</em> is concept of <em>Ayurveda</em> in which different anatomical structure are explained in <em>Ayurvedic</em> term. It’s one of the important contributions of <em>Ayurveda</em> in the medical field. It needs to be correlated with modern anatomy which further can be used in surgery purpose and also help in acupuncture or acupressure therapy. It will be the sort of proof that the structure present in modern anatomy were far ago explained in <em>Ayurvedic Samhita</em>. In <em>Paribhasha</em> <em>Sharir</em> a structure called <em>Jaal</em> or plexus is explained which means a binding structure which hold <em>Maans</em> (muscular plexus), <em>Sira</em> (vascular plexus), <em>Snayu</em> (ligamentum plexus) and <em>Asthi</em> (bony plexus) in one place and forming the network or <em>Jaal</em> like structure, there are 4 structure present in bilateral <em>Miniband Sandhi</em> i.e., wrist and <em>Gulfa Sandhi</em> i.e., ankle joint. In each joint there is involvement of four anatomical structure namely <em>Maans, Sira, Snayu, Asthi</em>. It can be correlated with human anatomical structure namely network of muscle tendons, palmer or planter arches, retinaculum, juncture of carpel and tarsal bones respectively.</p> 2023-09-01T08:22:47+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pooja B.

A set of knowledge system is likely to be relative to time &amp; place setting which facilitates its need based development. But though <em>Ayurvedic</em> education system is one of the recognized age old education systems but still neither developed nor advanced alike other education system across the globe. Due to lack of maintenance of such dynamic continuum in current education system of ancient system of Indian medicine, the knowledge bases of <em>Ayurveda</em> becomes stagnant, static &amp; gradually pass into merely history &amp;may not remain dynamic &amp; useful. Need of dynamism and activism through incorporation of cognitive psychology in education curriculum and enhancement of reasoning skill followed by critical thinking in the mind of medical professionals is quite necessary in the field of <em>Ayurveda</em> to make it up to date and develop it further in tune with the changing needs of the society today.

It is holistic approach to health which is designed to help people live a longer, healthy and well-balanced life. The principles of <em>Ayurveda</em> are important for both the healthy and diseased conditions. Only <em>Pariksha</em> is able to give accessibility to this information. <em>Charaka</em> has therefore given the examination the greatest possible significance and it suggests that it be performed. Being a branch of medicine, <em>Ayurveda</em> focuses a higher value on the examination or <em>Pariksha</em>. <em>Yukti</em> has been included in the four-part investigation into <em>Sat</em> and <em>Asat</em> (manifested and unmanifested things) by <em>Acharya</em> <em>Charaka</em>, which is a unique contribution of <em>Charaka.

In <em>Ayurveda</em>, since ancient time’s cow products have been used for a healthy body, therapeutic purposes and pharmaceutical processes. <em>Panchagavya</em> is a mixture prepared by using five ingredients derived from Cow. The three direct ingredients are cow dung, cow urine and cow milk and the two derived products are ghee and curd each of which represents ‘<em>Gavya</em>’ i.e., obtained from <em>Gou</em> (Cow). Each <em>Gavya</em> can be used individually or in combination with other products.&nbsp; Any product generated from food sources having additional health advantages in addition to the essential nutritional content contained in foods is considered as a Nutraceutical. The long standing consumer acceptability of nutraceuticals is brought about by their association with conventional medicine. Although the idea of nutraceuticals has grown in popularity recently, it has its roots in the traditional <em>Ayurvedic </em>medicine of ancient India. <strong>Aims and Objectives: </strong>This work is a modest attempt to employ <em>Panchagavya</em> as a kind of nutraceutical.&nbsp; <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> Various books and review articles were referred to carry out this review. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong>&nbsp; A number of illness, including obesity, dietary and gastrointestinal tract abnormalities, leucoderma, wound healing, leucorrhoea, hepatitis, TB, ulcer, chemical intoxication, as well as other bacterial, fungal and viral infections, are advised for <em>Panchgavya </em>therapy. Nutraceuticals are substances that have physiological benefits or provide protection against chronic diseases. Using this concept, <em>Panchgavya</em> can be used as a kind of nutraceutical.</p> 2023-09-01T15:55:11+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Vasavi Totawar (Madurwar) A literature review of Lohitaksha Marma with special reference to anatomical structure 2023-09-20T07:22:15+00:00 Pooja Vitthal Chandurkar G.B.

For transportation mode of such body constituents, the special term '<em>Srotasa' </em>is used which denotes a channel through which substances flow from one part to another part of body. <em>Srotasa</em> is a structural and functional unit of the body which comprises of two openings. From one opening it starts or begins the functioning and at the other opening it concludes it. Hence, for a <em>Srotasa</em> the two openings are connected to the body organs which are described as <em>Srotomoola</em> or <em>Moola Sthana</em> (root of <em>Srotasa</em>).</p> 2023-09-01T16:26:41+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Abhishek Dhadhich, Pallavi Choudhary, Rakesh Kumar Sharma, Navneet Dadhich Role of Ayurvedic Vyadhikshamatva in prevention of Covid-19 2023-09-23T16:18:02+00:00 Achal R.

In the present scenario though modern surgery has developed a lot but the basic concepts remain the same and they are base for these developments. <em>Seevana</em> is one among <em>Ashtavidha Shastrakarma. Acharya Sushruta</em> has emphasised clearly on <em>Seevana</em> <em>Karma</em> like its indication, contraindication, materials and the procedure. Suturing is the term used in Modern science for <em>Seevana</em>. A suture is any thread which brings into opposition two surfaces or tissues.<strong><sup>[2]</sup></strong> Suturing is a stich or series of stiches made to secure opposition of the edges of a surgical or traumatic wound. No surgery is complete without suturing. A lot of scope in developing suturing material told by <em>Acharya Sushruta</em> are on lines of modern medical science.

Due to tubal blockage <em>Bija</em> and <em>Shukra</em> are not able to meet in fallopian tube and it hampers process of fertilization and female does not able to conceive. Ayurveda has been successful in treating infertility since several thousand years. If we emphasize on tubal blockage according to Ayurvedic aspects we find that it occurs due to <em>Vatakapha </em>dominated<em> Tridoshaj </em>condition as <em>Vata </em>is responsible for <em>Samkocha</em>, <em>Kapha </em>for <em>Shopha</em> and <em>Pitta </em>for <em>Paka</em>.

Food digestion, <em>Sara</em> and <em>Kitta Vibhajan</em>, and feeding the <em>Agneya</em> component of <em>Pitta</em>, which is distributed throughout the body, are all tasks carried out by the <em>Pachaka Pitta</em>. It also goes by the name <em>Jatharagni</em>. after aiding in food digestion, this <em>Agni</em> form <em>Pitta</em> divides the <em>Sara</em> and <em>Kitta Bhaga.</em> All digestive enzymes, such as amylolytic, proteolytic, and lipolytic enzymes, can be compared to <em>Pachaka Pitta</em>, as suggested by the functions of this substance. The goals of digestive enzymes, gastrointestinal hormones, and local hormones can be linked to the actions of <em>Pachaka Pitta</em>.</p> 2023-09-01T17:02:33+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pooja Pareek, Rakesh Chhimpa, Rajesh Kumar Sharma, Dinesh Chandra Sharma An overview of Srotas w.s.r. to therapeutics in Ayurveda 2023-09-25T17:30:33+00:00 Nitish Sharma Pawan Kumar Kirar Lajwanti Keswani Salil Jain Monika Parihar <p>In <em>Ayurveda</em>, <em>Ayu</em> is defined as conjunction of body, soul, mind and senses.

For healthy living <em>Ayurveda</em> emphasizes on consuming right kind of diet which provide health and nutrition. The diet which disturbs the balance among the body elements is called <em>Viruddha Ahara</em> (Incompatible diet). Consuming two food items together or a particular type of diet may tend to toxicity; it is termed as incompatible diet.

Living body is continuously subjected to wear and tear process. <em>Dhatus</em> which are being lost in physiological activities are replenished by food and water. Man needs to eat food to build a new <em>Dhatus</em> and to repair damage <em>Dhatus</em>. After consumption food is digested in gastro intestinal tract.
