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 <em>Ayurvedic</em> classics, various internal medicines and procedures are advocated in the management of <em>Mukharogas</em>. In general, the drugs selected for treatment should have <em>Lekhana, Shothahara, Pachana, Ropana, Rakthashambana</em> and <em>Vedanasthapana</em> properties. One such polyherbal preparation is <em>Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha</em> mentioned in <em>Svayathu Chikitsa</em> by <em>Acharya Vagbhata</em>, which is widely used in clinics for management of <em>Tundikeri</em>. 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 <em>Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha</em> in <em>Tundikeri.</em><strong> Materials and Methods:</strong> An open trial single group clinical study with minimum of 30 patients between the age group of 5 to 15 years with <em>Tundikeri</em> over a period of 30 days. <strong>Result:</strong> The clinical&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; study showed highly significant results in relieving the clinical signs and symptoms of <em>Tundikeri</em>. <strong>Discussion: </strong>The <em>Dashamoolaharitaki Avaleha</em> was found therapeutically effective and safe to be administered in children and the mode of action was elaborated to substantiate the results.</p> Aiswarya Prabhu, Sharashchandra R, Nagaratna SJ, Sandesh Kumar Shetty Copyright (c) 2022 Aiswarya Prabhu, Sharashchandra R, Nagaratna SJ, Sandesh Kumar Shetty https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1911 Fri, 09 Sep 2022 16:13:52 +0000 A randomized comparative clinical study to evaluate the effect of Ghanavyoshadi Khanda over Vidarikandadi Khanda in Karshya w.s.r. to Underweight Children https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1917 <p><strong>Background: </strong>Undernutrition is one of the major causes of increased morbidity &amp; mortality among children. One of the most emerging issues in the present scenario is having long-term effects on physical &amp; cognitive development. Underweight is one of the cardinal determinants of under nutrition.&nbsp; According to a 2019 report, India is ranked 102 out of 119 countries. As per NFHS 4 in India shows 35.7% under 5 children were underweight, 38.4% were stunted &amp; 21% were wasted. <em>Karshya</em> is an <em>Apatarpana Janya Vyadhi.</em>&nbsp; The trial was proposed to study the comparative effect of <em>Ghanavyoshadi Khanda &amp; Vidaryadi Khanda</em> by using specific parameters for <em>Karshya </em>w.s.r. to underweight. <strong>Objective:</strong> To evaluate the comparative effect of <em>Ghanavyoshadi Khanda </em>over <em>Vidarikandadi Khanda</em> in the management of<em> Karshya</em>. <strong>Materials &amp; Methods: </strong>Children of age group 2-5 years were selected from Kaumarabhritya OPD of SDM College of Ayurveda &amp; Hospital, Udupi, also from nearby Anganwadi’s &amp; preschool of Udupi. Selected subjects were randomly allocated into 2 groups of 15 patients each. Group A will be administered with <em>Ghanavyoshadi Khanda</em> along with <em>Sukoshna Ksheera</em> as <em>Anupana </em>twice daily before food and group B with<em> Vidarikandadi Khanda</em> along with <em>Sukoshna Ksheera</em> as <em>Anupana </em>twice daily after food for 1 month. <strong>Results: </strong>Children showed improvements in all aspects of <em>Karshya</em> w.s.r. to underweight like weight, height, MUAC, &amp; BMI. Both the groups showed highly significant improvement in <em>Kshut, Abyavarana Sakti</em> &amp; significant changes in <em>Badhavitt.</em> Insignificant changes in <em>Alpapranaschakriya, Pipasa &amp; Nidra</em>. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>It was concluded clinically the consumption of <em>Ghanavyoshadi Khanda &amp; Vidaryadi Khanda </em>along with <em>Sukoshna Ksheera</em> are equally effective in the management of <em>Karshya </em>w.s.r. to underweight in children<em>.</em></p> Aparna KP, Prathviraj Puranik, Nagaratna SJ, Sandesh Shetty Copyright (c) 2022 Aparna KP, Prathviraj Puranik, Nagaratna SJ, Sandesh Shetty https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1917 Fri, 09 Sep 2022 16:42:10 +0000 A clinical study in the management of Garbhini Chardi with Dhatripanaka w.s.r. to Emesis Gravidarum https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1982 <p><strong>Background:</strong> Health of pregnant women is of at most importance. A series of physiological and psychological changes happen in different stage of women, some of them may end in discomfort and trouble. Ayurveda classics have mentioned <em>Garbhini Chardi</em> as one among the <em>Vyakta Garbha Lakshanas</em>, which can be correlated with emesis gravidarum. Emesis gravidarum is a worldwide common obstetrical problem seen in the first trimester in about 50% of pregnant women. In this condition nausea and vomiting tend to be the start in the morning and frequently continue throughout the day. Altered hormonal and immunological states are considered responsible for the initiation of the manifestations which is probably aggravated by the neurological factors. For such physiological alteration, if proper care is not given, it may lead to complication like tiredness, weight loss, etc. which may affect mother and growing fetus. <strong>Aim: </strong>To analyze the efficacy of <em>Dhatripanaka</em> in the management of <em>Garbhini Chardi</em> with special reference to Emesis Gravidarum. <strong>Method:</strong> A randomized open labelled controlled clinical study of two groups consisting 15 patient each in control and trial group. <strong>Results:</strong> <em>Dhatripanaka</em> was found to be effective in all subjective and objective parameters. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> <em>Dhatripanaka</em> and Tab. Doxinate is equally effective in <em>Garbhini Chardi</em> w.s.r. Emesis Gravidarum.</p> Dharmista Patel, Rachana H.V.

It may be thick or viscid and foul smelling if it is caused by some infections. Inflammation of the womb, displacement of the uterus following childbirth and general weakness along with lack of cleanliness or infections may result as leucorrhoea among young females. In our text <em>Shwetapradar</em> is described directly or indirectly in many <em>Yonirogas</em> as a symptom. In the present study we have used <em>Karanj Tail Yoni Pichu</em> with the aim to validate the directives of classics on parameters of a systematic and scientific research work. <strong>Aim:</strong> Aim of the study is to evaluate the effects of <em>Karanj Tail Yoni Pichu</em> in the management of <em>Shwetapradar</em>. <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> The method adopted in present study is clinical, open study. This study was done on 15 patients selected from OPD, having complaints of leucorrhoea and who fits in inclusion criteria. Patients were given <em>Karanj Tail Yoni Pichu. </em>All the patients result were assessed subjectively and objectively. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>This can be made out from the study that <em>Karanj Tail Yoni Pichu</em> is having <em>Kaphavatashamak, Krimighna, Kandughna, Shothahara, Yonidoshahrita, Vranasodhana, Vranaropana </em>etc. properties which successfully control &amp; cure <em>Shwetapradar</em>.</p> Meenakshi Nagar Copyright (c) 2022 Meenakshi Nagar https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1936 Fri, 09 Sep 2022 16:56:55 +0000 An open label single arm prospective clinical study on the combined effectiveness of Panchanimbakam Churna Vati and Pathyadi Lepa in Kitibha Kushta (Psoriasis) https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1983 <p><em>Kitibha Kushta</em> is mentioned under <em>Kshudra Kushta</em> and is one among the <em>Ashtamahagada</em>. There is the involvement of <em>Tridosha</em> in all <em>Kushta</em> but the predominance of <em>Dosha</em> makes the types &amp; manifestations of <em>Kushta</em> different. Psoriasis is one of the most common skin disorders. It is a papulosquamous disorder of the skin characterized by sharply defined erythematosquamous lesions. It is chronic and is well known for its course of remission and exacerbation. Prevalence of psoriasis in adults varies from 0.44 to 2.8%, with a much lower prevalence in children. The combined formulations <em>Panchanimbakam Churna Vati</em> and <em>Pathyadi Lepa, </em>mentioned in <em>Gadanigraha</em> and <em>Yogaratnakara</em> respectively, are indicated for the management of <em>Kitibha</em> <em>Kushta</em>. The combination collectively contains <em>Kushtaghna Dravyas</em> and has <em>Katu, Tikta and Kashaya Rasa, Laghu, Ruksha Guna</em>, and <em>Ushna Veerya</em> that are helpful in <em>Samprapti</em> <em>Vighatana</em> of <em>Vata </em>and <em>Kapha</em> dominant <em>Kushta. </em><strong>Material and Methods: </strong>Among 30 registered participants, 25 completed the treatment. They were administered with <em>Panchanimbakam</em> <em>Churna</em> <em>Vati</em> orally 3 gm per day before food and <em>Pathyadi</em> <em>Lepa</em> externally for 30 days. The <em>Lakshanas</em> and PASI score was assessed on the 1<sup>st</sup>, 15<sup>th,</sup> and 30th. For Statistical analysis, subjective parameters were assessed by Cochran’s Q test followed by McNemar test, and objective parameters were assessed by Repeated Measures Anova and Paired T-Test. <strong>Results: </strong>There was a statistically significant improvement in the signs and symptoms of <em>Kitibha Kushta</em> (Psoriasis)(p&lt;0.05). <strong>Conclusion: </strong>The combination of <em>Panchanimbakam Churna Vati</em> and <em>Pathyadi Lepa,</em> is effective in the management of <em>Kitibha Kushta</em> (Psoriasis)</p> Kalpana Bhamini, Lakshmiprasad L.

Fever is defined as temperature in rectum more than 100.4°F (38°C), in oral cavity above 99.5°F (37.5°C) or in axilla above 99°F (37. 2°C). If we don’t treat fever in its earlier stage, there will be more chances of hyperpyrexia which may cause febrile convulsions which leads to brain damage. Therefore, it is necessary to control fever at its earlier stage. One such <em>Jwarahara </em>formulation is <em>Mukkaamukkatukaadi Gulika</em> and <em>Kiratatikta</em> which is converted into syrup form to overcome the palatability issues. A sample size of 30 patients was selected by simple random sampling method and 15 patients were allotted in two groups. It was planned to compare the result between <em>Mukkaamukkatukaadi</em> syrup in Group A study group for STG and LTG and <em>Kiratatikta</em> syrup in Group B control group for STG and LTG. On STG comparison, the difference in mean in Group A and Group B were 0.49,0.44 before treatment changed to 0.96 and 0.98 after treatment respectively.&nbsp; On LTG comparison, the difference in mean in Group A and Group B were 0.49, 0.44 before treatment changed to 2.02 and 1.96 after follow up respectively. This depicts both the formulations effective when consumed for longer duration. From the results and observations it can be concluded that Group A and Group B are equally effective and equally significant on reducing the temperature in both STG and LTG. No adverse drug reaction was found during the study.</p> Suja K, Prathviraj Puranik, Sharashchandra R, Sandesh Kumar Shetty Copyright (c) 2022 Suja K, Prathviraj Puranik, Sharashchandra R https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1934 Sat, 10 Sep 2022 15:03:09 +0000 Etiopathological and diagnostic study of Margavaranajanya Hridroga w.s.r. to Coronary Artery Disease - An Observational Study https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1984 <p>The incidence of cardiac diseases is increasing at an alarming rate in our society due to sedentary lifestyle as an impact of western culture. In India, many studies have reported increasing coronary artery disease incidence over 60 years. One in 4 deaths in India are due to coronary artery disease. So thorough understanding of pathogenesis of this disease is very important. Ayurveda literature elaborates multiple maladies related to heart under <em>Hridroga</em>. <em>Margavarana</em> is a unique pathology explained in our classics. Various dietary, behavioural, psychological factors contribute to morbid accumulation of <em>Kapha</em> and <em>Medas</em> leading to <em>Shonita Abhishyandana</em>. Further morbid state of <em>Shonita Abhishyandana</em> by <em>Upalepa</em> of <em>Dhamani</em> culminates in development of <em>Dhamani Prathicchaya</em>. Eventually due to <em>Siraaja Granthi Dhamani Prathichhaya</em> ends up in <em>Margavarna</em> and is the leading pathology of <em>Hridroga</em>. In the realm of conventional medicine, it is said that sedentary life style is the major cause of morbid accumulation of fat in the body leading to metabolic syndrome. It is characterised by dyslipidemia which in turn leading to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis predisposes the thromboembolism and complete obliteration of blood circulation within the vessel. Hence, in the present study an endeavour is made to corelate the concept of Coronary artery disease and its ill effects with the classical reference regarding the concept of <em>Margavarana</em> pathology occurring in the <em>Hridaya</em> causing <em>Margavaranajanya Hridroga</em> and also its diagnosis through the modern tools.</p> Abhishta Jain, Prashanth Jain, Geetha B.

Early reports describing a dysexecutive syndrome after COVID-19 and has considerable implications for occupational, psychological, and functional outcomes. It is well known that elders may be particularly susceptible to cognitive impairment after critical illness. <em>Trā</em><em>ṭ</em><em>aka</em> (a yogīc cleansing technique) is one of the <em>Yogā</em> practices which is considered to improve cognitive functions. The objective of this study was to determine whether <em>Trā</em><em>ṭ</em><em>aka</em> practice enhances the cognitive functions of the post covid elderly subjects. <strong>Material and Methods:</strong> Thirty elders who had enrolled in a thirty days Trāṭaka practice program. Their age ranged between 60 and 80 years (group average ±S.D., 68.5±6.3 years). Those who have any chronic illness and mental illness, and those who are not willing to participate were excluded. <em>Trā</em><em>ṭ</em><em>aka</em> intervention is given for 30 days, 1hour/day. At baseline and following thirty days, all participants completed DLST and SLCT. <strong>Results:</strong> <em>Trā</em><em>ṭ</em><em>aka</em> intervention showed significant change in DLST scores, increase (P-value&lt; 0.000) in total attempted score, significant increase (P-value&lt;0.000) in net score, significant reduction in wrongly attempted score (P-value&lt;0.000). Significant change in SLCT scores, significant increase (P-value&lt;0.000) in total attempted score, Similarly, significant increase (P-value&lt;.000) in net score, significant reduction in wrongly attempted score (P-value&lt;0.000). <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The thirty days <em>Trā</em><em>ṭ</em><em>aka</em> intervention was successful in enhancing the cognitive functions among post-covid elders.</p> Sahana AU, Vijaya Kumar PS Copyright (c) 2022 Sahana AU, Vijaya Kumar PS https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1905 Sat, 10 Sep 2022 15:31:46 +0000 An observational clinico etiological study of Kushta with specific reference to Tinea corporis https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1932 <p><strong>Background:</strong> Skin diseases are among the most common health problems worldwide and are associated with considerable burden. In <em>Ayurveda</em> classics, skin disorders are termed in general as <em>Kushta</em> and are caused with involvement of <em>Vata</em>, <em>Pitta</em>, <em>Shleshma</em> and <em>Krimi.</em> Among the diversified etiological factors <em>Krimi</em> has a great importance. So, here an attempt is made to evaluate the clinical types, to isolate the common fungal species, etiological factors and to identify probable risk factors of <em>Krimijanya</em> <em>Kushta</em> in the present population. <strong>Objectives:</strong> To evaluate the clinical types, etiological factors and to identify probable risk factors of <em>Krimijanya</em> <em>Kushta</em> with special reference to Tinea Corporis and to isolate the prevalent causative fungal species. <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> A total of 30 patients clinically diagnosed with tinea corporis and fulfilling the inclusion criteria were taken for the study. <strong>Results:</strong> Among 31 patients studied percentage of growth of different species of dermatophytes in culture study are given as follows, 48.4% are Trichophyton, 6.5% were Trichosporon, 3.2% were Microsporum Gypseum, 19.4% were Epidermophyton,16.1% were Candida, 3.2% were Aspergillus, 3.2% were found no growth. <strong>Conclusion</strong>: <em>Aharaja</em> and <em>Viharaja</em> <em>Nidana</em> mentioned in <em>Kushta</em> <em>Nidana</em> as well as <em>Krimi</em> <em>Nidana</em> were found to have <em>Madhura</em>, <em>Amla</em>, <em>Lavana</em> <em>Rasa</em>, <em>Guru</em> <em>Guna</em>, <em>Vidahi</em>, and <em>Kledakaraka</em> property which cause <em>Swedaavarodha</em> and is crucial for <em>Kushta</em> <em>Utpathi</em> as well as <em>Krimi</em> <em>Utpatti</em>. The prevalent causative fungal species found in the study were Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, Aspergillus, Trichosporon, Microsporum gypseum.

In this study we assessed the safety parameters of the <em>Lehana Yogas</em> mentioned and its effect on acute and subacute administration in Wistar albino rats. The Wistar strain albino rats were divided into group of five, vehicle group of <em>Ghrita-Madhu</em>, <em>Ghrita-Madhu</em> with <em>Suvarna Bhasma</em>, <em>Ghrita-Madhu</em> -<em>Suvarna Bhasma</em> with <em>Vacha Churna</em>, <em>Ghrita-Madhu</em> -<em>Suvarna Bhasma</em> with <em>Amalaki Churna</em>, respectively. The duration of administration was for 28 days. During the course of study, no mortality and no significant behavioral changes were noticed in any group studied. No major alterations were observed in hematology and serum biochemistry reports. Histopathology of vital organs also shown no toxic effects. <strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>Thirty albino rats of either sex were selected and assigned to 5 groups of 6 each. Drugs will be administered for the duration of 28 days and will be assessed for toxicity profile at the end of the study. <strong>Result:</strong> Animals who were administered daily with <em>Lehana Yogas</em> for longer duration did not show any mortality. Hence, it indicates safer use of drugs in terms acute and subacute level of administration. <strong>Discussion:</strong> It is concluded that the administration of <em>Lehana Yogas</em> is safe and non-toxic at the tested dose levels<strong>.</strong></p> Lara Dias, Sharaschandra R, Nagartna SJ, Sudhakar Bhat Copyright (c) 2022 Lara Dias, Sharaschandra R, Nagartna SJ, Sudhakar Bhat https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1989 Sun, 11 Sep 2022 05:12:02 +0000 To assess the Garbha Poshan by Upsneha and Upsweda Nyayas in Ayurveda and to assess the Role of Incubators in Post Natal Care https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1990 <p>Ayurveda, commonly known as “The Science of Life” originated in India 5000 years back. It places great emphasis on a holistic approach that not only addresses the root cause of diseases but also helps in prevention of disease by including the way of living healthy. <em>Ayurveda</em>, the indigenous system of medicine, narrates about the genetic principles, <em>Garbhavakranti </em>(embryology), <em>Garbhini Paricharya </em>(Ante Natal Care), Port partum care, and a newborn care in stepwise and systematic manner in <em>Brihattrayi's</em>. The ultimate aim of Antenatal Care is to achieve healthy mother and a healthy baby. The concept of <em>Suprajajanana </em>is the prime concern of <em>Ayurveda</em> since a long time. Nutrition during pregnancy has a profound effect on development of the foetus. Before formation of placenta, nourishment of foetus occurs through <em>Upasneha Nyaya </em>afterwards it is nourished by <em>Upasweda Nyaya </em>and by a placental circulation. The improper foetal nutrition may end in <em>Akal Prasav </em>(preterm labour) or <em>Garbhavyapadas </em>like <em>Upavishtak </em>(IUGR) or any other foetal is complications. It is evident that <em>Ayurveda</em> offers holistic natural formulations in the management of <em>Garbhavyapadas</em>. In modern medical science infants with or without LBW or IUGR are managed by keeping them in Incubators under observation, as they achieves a very little time to grow and gain weight in the mother's womb.</p> Prajakta V.

Hence, everyone in general and youngsters in particular are very cautious about beauty of their face. Acne vulgaris (A.V) is a disease of the pilosebaceous origin that causes non-inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules and nodules) and varying degrees of scarring. In <em>Ayurveda</em> <em>Yauvanapidika</em> (Acne vulgaris) is such a condition that disfigures the face during adolescent to younger age. If the condition remains untreated, it leaves permanent scars over the face. According to <em>Ayurveda</em>, vitiation of <em>Kapha Dosha, Vata Dosha</em> and <em>Rakta Dhatu</em> lead to development of <em>Mukhadushika or Yauvanapidika </em>which have resemblance with acne vulgaris in modern texts. Both modern and <em>Ayurvedic</em> sciences have considered the use of topical as well as oral medicines and their combination for the management of acne vulgaris. No doubt modern medication provides quick relief from acne vulgaris but cause noticeable side effects. Nowadays herbal formulations and Ayurvedic therapy are the superior choices for cosmetic purposes among the most of the population. So, the aim and objectives of this article is to minimize the side effects of Allopathic medicine in Acne vulgaris (A.V) as well as to popularized the <em>Vamana</em> therapy (one of the procedures of <em>Panchakarma</em> therapy) by a case study of 25 yrs old female patient having complaints of recurrent erythematic papules and pustules along with dark spots on her face.

There are several methods to treat pilonidal sinus, but the recurrence rate is more. This apparently minor condition can present the surgeon with major challenges. Many of the standard surgical procedures are associated with a significant risk both of delayed healing and of recurrent disease. Location of the disease is in the natal cleft with midline positioning of the lesion associated with moisture and abundant hair poses greater threat to effective management. According to <em>Ayurveda</em> it can be correlated to <em>Salyaja Nadi Vrana</em>.

Muell) is a dessert climate plant widely known in Sri Lanka as a traditional folk remedy for treating / addressing acute, chronic, and non-healing wounds. Majority of the chronic leg ulcers arises from venous ulcers, which occurs due to abnormal venous hypertension in the lower third of the leg, ankle and dorsum of foot. The study aims to explore the potential benefits of <em>Katupila Rasakriya</em> for <em>Vrana Shodhana</em> in venous ulcer. It is a case report of a 54 year old male patient who presented with the chief complains of a non-healing ulcer above right lateral malleolus since 2 months. Associated with pain, burning sensation, seropurulent discharge with unpleasant odour. He was examined and diagnosed as venous ulcer. The wound was dressed with <em>Katupila Rasakriya</em> twice for a period of 14 days. Significant healing in wound was observed within 2 weeks of treatment. Healing of Venous ulcers are a major clinical challenge. In spite of the fact that the healing of <em>vrana</em> is a natural process, it should be protected against <em>Dosha Dushti</em>, and micro-organisms which may delay the healing process. Thus, before initiating <em>Ropana</em>, It is important to focus on making a <em>Vrana Sudha</em>. In the present study, <em>Katupila Rasakriya</em> demonstrated promising results in the better management of venous ulcer. Further clinical study is needed to evaluate the effectiveness in larger sample.</p> R Lakshmi, K M Sweta, Dhyan Surendranath Copyright (c) 2022 R Lakshmi, K M Sweta, Dhyan Surendranath https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1998 Sun, 11 Sep 2022 16:15:06 +0000 A single case study of Ayurvedic management of Vicharchika w.s.r. to Weeping Eczema https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/1999 <p>In the present case study, a 4 years old girl consulted in the Ayurvedic clinic after a spectrum of allopathic treatment with huge disappointment.

Any derangement in the normalcy leads to building up of metabolic wastes within the body. One such condition where in there is accumulation of bilirubin in the blood is hyperbilirubinemia. Viral infection is the cause and presenting with yellowish discoloration of sclera, dark urine, pale stool, fatigue, flu like symptoms, loss of appetite etc. In Ayurveda, such symptoms are mentioned under the broad name Kamala. The line of management mainly highlights the advice of <em>Shodhana</em> in the form of <em>Virechana</em> and different <em>Shamana Aushadhis</em> based on the stages of the disease. In traditional folklore practice, the patients of these symptoms are treated with <em>Tikshna, Shodhana Nasya Karma</em>. With that practice in backdrop, a 17 years female patient presented with hyper-bilirubinaemia, was treated with <em>Dronapushpi Swarasa Nasya</em> ten drops to each nostrils, in a gap of 2 days. When the bilirubin level was raising gradually even after usual internal medication, this treatment was planned and administered. The bilirubin level from 5.7 was reduced to 1.4 after the treatment gradually over a period of 12 days. The patient showed gradual recovery from almost all the symptoms clinically and in haematological parameters. During the procedure nasya did not show any complications in the patients. <em>Dronapushpi Swarasa </em>can be effectively used to manage hyper-bilirubinaemia.</p> Rohit Kumar, Rajalaxmi MG Copyright (c) 2022 Rohit Kumar, Rajalaxmi MG https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://jaims.in/jaims/article/view/2009 Sun, 11 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000
