Makwana, Reader, Dept of Kayachikitsa (P.G.), Smt.K.G.M.P.Ayurvedic College,N.S.Road, Mumbai- 400 002 Those who got birth must be die as per natures’ law. But the theory of natural destructionwould be played an important role to maintain the healthy peaceful long life by way ofunderstanding proper ethical and philosophical knowledge. The individual is regular inmaintaining of physic, regular in psychiatry status and strongest in sense organs should not beeffected by any internal and external organism ( The factor are responsible toplay the role to make balance of body elements must be responsible to make imbalance of bodyelements. It is the eternal law of the theory of natural destruction as said by Cha. at sutra 16/27. The modern researchers are also believed in four major principles for aging theory.Those are: 1. Wear and tear theory of Aging, 2.Genetic theory of Aging, 3.Stress theory ofAging and 4. Autoimmune theory of Aging. This thinking is supportive to autoimmune theory bycomparative study to vayastapana theory. The topics that show the Immuno-Rejuvenator effectin the human body by way of using Vayasthapan Mahakashaya to restrict the destruction ofbody elements in middle-old age i.e. 40-70 years when the major natural destruction starts.After the use of vayasthapana mahakashaya ( an individual gets – Energy, Power, Strength and Steady life. If the preventive majors are started in time in healthy individual’slife the natural destruction should be really restrict and will restores all above four factors. Thebasic majors are: Prevention is better than cure, To maintain age by proper routine life, Tomaintain age by proper balanced diet, To use proper medication as needed with understand-ing, to prevent ourselves from internal and external prophylactic causative factors and To establishsatisfactory physical psychological routine life. (Cha.sha.2/46) Natural constructive anddestructive majors are deeply found out in the subject mentioned above will be established inan Ayurvedic Immuno-Rejuvenator effect in human body during their middle-old age in ourstudy.002. LIFE STYLE MANAGEMENT AND DRUG THERAPY TO ATTAIN MENTAL HEALTHTHROUGH AYURVEDA IN MODEM WORLDProf. Y.K.Sharma, Prof & Head P.G.Kayachikitsa, RGPG Ay. College Paprola, Himachal Pradesh Ayurveda intends to act with human body at two levels i.e. to retain, maintain and cor-rect physical and mental status of individuals. Like “Soma” (Physical constitution), “Psyche”(Mental constitution) too is considered as a component of human life related activities. Mind or“mana” is also a seat of disorders like the body. While Ahara (Food), Dincharya (Daily routine),Ritucharya (Seasonal routines) practices are considered primarily essential for retaining a nor-mal body physiology; the practices like “Sadvritta”(Moral conduct), Achara Rasayana (Socialconduct) and practices like “Devavyapashraya” (Faith in and practices of Spirituality) haveessential effect to maintain healthy psychology. Not only this, considerable treasure of drugs tofight sleep related disorders, stress, depression, neurasthenia, memory related disorders, psy-chosexual disorders, premature retardation of mental faculties etc is available in Ayurveda tobe of effective use of modem society. The utility of Ayurvedic practices, drugs is further boosted when they are applied incombination with Yogic practices. Modem life style has thrown to jeopardy common code of lifestyle, which was doctrined in past by social, cultural, ethnic, dietetic and traditional practices.Today it is not surprising to note that no two persons have resemblance in their life style.

Atharva 2006 International Ayurvedic Abstracts Conference & AyurExpostages of existence, race of materialism, so called western food and culture etc have thrown upnew challenges in attainment of mental health. This if not met with a very rational approach willopen a floodgate of mental sicknesses also. Life style advises of Ayurveda and rational use ofselect drugs of Ayurveda will have a definite role to contain present trends and challenges tomental health.003. ROLE OF PRANAYAMA IN PRATISHYAYA (ALLERGIC RHINITIS)Dr. Naveen. B. Sajjan, Internee, Dr. U.V.Purad, Asst. Professor & H.O.D., Department of RogaVignana Dr. Veerayya R. Hiremath, Prof. and H.O.D. Dept. of Swasta vrutta S.D.M Hassan,Shri.Hiremath, Principal Basava yoga Kendra Gadag Allergic disorders are most prevalent causes among the ailments causing pain to society.Among those Pratishyaya is one of the prevalent problem affecting in all ages, with repeatedepisodes. It is a Nasagata vyadhi. It occurs due to Ritu viparyaya, Mithya Ahara vihara, etc andSamsargaja in nature. It spreads by the contact of infected saliva or nasal secretions. Pathologically, nasal mucosa is inflamed by either bacterial or viral infection. Recurrentattacks and the incomplete treatment make the disease chronic and resistance to the therapy.So, the patient looses immunity and become vulnerable for infectious diseases and also systemiccomplications. Medical science though developed a lot the recurrence of the disease is still aproblem. Hence, there is a need of simple, economic procedure to treat this ailment. Acharyas mentioned number of therapies and medicaments to combat the ailment likeKavala, Gandusha, Dhoomapana, Ghritapana, Virechana, etc. The practice of Pranyama isnot directly specified in the classics, but it plays an immense role in its management. To assessthis, a clinical trial was conducted on 20 patients with practice of Pranayama in Pratishyaya atD.G.M. Ayurvedic Medical College Gadag. The results were assessed in pre and post treatmentdesigned proforma. The detail description of the study, related data will be presented in fullpaper.004. STANDARDIZATION OF “VASAKASAVASA”: A PHARMACEUTICAL STUDYDr.Avinash.M.Pastore, 2nd year P.G.Scholar, Dr.Dinesh Kumar Mishra. M.D.(Ayu), H.O.D,Dr.Harikrishna.M.D.(Ayu), Lecturer, Dept. of Bhaishajya Kalpana, A.L.N.Rao Memorial AyurvedicMedical College, Koppa, Chikmagalor Dist. 577126 Our ancient medicinal system, Ayurveda explains treating of diseases with natural re-sources like herbs. The form in which the herbs are administered to a patient is called as‘dosage form’. Every one cannot be given with a particular dosage form because it may pro-duce complications like tastelessness, vomiting etc., (Cha. Su.4/7) Among these dosage forms,the one which has longer shelf life has advantage over others. Asava Kalpana is one suchdosage form whose quality increases with time (Sharangadhara Sam.Prathama Khanda 1/56).Due to globalization of Ayurveda, the demand for Ayurvedic preparations is much more in-creased. So standardization has become an important aspect to maintain universal similarityespecially in relation with Ayurvedic dosage forms. Today commercialization of Ayurvedic phar-macy has made it necessary to standardize pharmaceutical procedure of any dosage form.The advent of modern technologies has made the process of standardization more sophisti-cated. PH value, Ash value, Alcohol content, etc are the parameters, which are used as tools ofstandardization of any dosage form. So a pharmaceutical study of Vasakasava (Yoga RatnakaraUttarardha, Shotha Chikitsa) is conducted with special reference to its standardization by meansof the above-mentioned criteria. 2 December 1, 2, 3 - 2006 DGM Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital, Gadag - 582 103, Karnataka,

Scholar, Dr. M. A. Pandya, H.O.D. Department ofStrlroga and Prasutitantra, I.P.G.T. & R.A., Jamnagar Gender differences play a role in manifestation of disease and health outcomes. Womenoften delay self-care as they attend to the care of their family and children. Delineating betweenthe commonality of being a woman and the difference or uniqueness of health issue of theindividual women is key for physicians. In present era, most of the women are working women and due to change in life style,food habit, workload, she faces lots of stress and strain owing to complicated structure of thefemale body women are subject to a large number of complains connected with genital organs. In females common gynecological complains include cervical erosion, Menstrual disorders,PID, PCOD, leucorrhoea. In day to day practice, about 60-70% women suffering from cervicalerosion. Main symptoms of cervical erosion are discharge PN, itching vulva, burning vulva,backache etc. Vrana, which is situated on Griva of Garbhashaya, is known as “GarbhashayaGrivamukhagata Vrana”. Acharya Sushruta in Sutra Sthana mentioned Agnikarma in thetreatment of Vrana (Su.Su. 2/10). Agnikarma is considered as best among Aushdh, Shastraand Kshara (Su. Su.12/3).006. DESIGNING AND METHODOLOGY OF CLINICAL RESEARCH IN AYURVEDADr. T.SIRISHA, M.D. I yr, Dr.B.R.K.R. GOVT.AYURVEDIC COLLEGE, HYDERABAD, A.P. Research, an art of scientific investigation aim in searching new facts, understandingthem and ultimately establishing them as concept/ siddhanta. Methodology of clinical researchin Ayurveda is unique and requires the knowledge of contemporary sciences too. Defining theresearch problem using aptavachana, Defining the aim & objective of the study, Review ofliterature: aim in finding rationality in selection of particular drug in a disease, Selection ofdrug: drug is selected based on its gunatmak & karmatmak vivechana, Stating the hypothesis:using pramana, Parameters: 5 hetu lakshanas form the base for selecting the parameters,Designing the investigation for studying the problem basing on pancha avayava vakyas, theirsignificance and defining the population under study using desa, bala, etc are important todiscuss at this juncture.007. SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF HERBO MINERAL DRUGS IN PEDIATRICSDr. Janardhana. V. Hebbar, 2nd year P.G.Scholar, Dr. Dinesh Kumar Mishra.M.D.(Ayu), H.O.D.,Dr.Harikrishna, Lecturer, Dept. of B.K. A.L.N. Rao. Memorial Ayurvedic College, Koppa,Chikmagalor Dist, Karnataka Safety and efficacy of herbo mineral drugs are of great cause of concern now a days.From ancient time itself herbo mineral preparations had been the major weapon against manyailments, as mentioned by Ayurvedic scholars. But a myth is spreading in the society regardingtheir toxicity and adverse effects. Hence practitioners are restricting the utility of these herbomineral products at various stages. One such category is pediatrics. Various herbo mineralproducts were used in pediatrics by ancient ayurvedic scholars such as Jahar moharaBhasma1,Balarka Rasa2, Dantodbheda Gadantaka Rasa3, Kumara Kalyana Rasa4, Rasa pipariRasa,etc5.D.G.M.

  5. 5. Atharva 2006 International Ayurvedic Abstracts Conference & AyurExpo A detailed study of mode of action of each ingredient will enable to theoretically provethe efficacy of these preparations in pediatric care. The only care needed to be taken in theirusage is in purification, adoption of proper methodology in drug preparation and usage ofdrugs with specific anupana & pathya apathya, considering the conditions of the patient andthe disease.References:- 1) Ayurveda Sara Sangraha, Shodhana, Marana, Prakarana Page 107, 2)Ayurveda Sara Sangraha, Page 353, 354. 3) Bhaishajya Rathnavali, Balaroga Adhikara, 123– 126, 4) Bhaishajya Rathnavali, Balaroga Adhikara, 163.008. PHARMACEUTICAL STANDARDIZATION OF RASAPUSPA-AN EAGLES EYEDr. PRONAB HALDAR, (M.D. Scholar), Dr. HARI KRISHNA,, Prof. and H.O.D. Dr. DINESH KU.MISHRA, Lecturer, Dept of R.S. & B.K. A.L.N.R.M. Ay. Medical College, Koppa – 577126,Chikmagalor Dist. Karnataka Rising demand of mercurial preparations in the therapeutic field, which is quality sensitiveand competitive, the need to further improve the standards, usage of Ayurvedic drugs is mademandatory by every scholar of Ayurveda. In endeavor to improve the quality of Kupipakatarasa, the stumbling block is lack of standardized Agni mapana and duration to attain an qualitativeproduct. By standardization on expects to inculcate uniformity in quality and there by therapeuticeffect of the same. It properly prepared kupipakwa rasa attains the sukshmatva, yogavahita,Vyavayer and vikasi qualities with proper concentration on the sublimation procedures. Astandardized study of pharmaceutical procedure will be useful in exploring the hidden potentiatedqualities of yoga.The importance of rasasastra which deals with rasausadhies can be markedby the quotation described in rasendra sara samgnaha (1/4) which indicates that rasausadhiesare effective in smaller doses, having agreeable taste, quick action and need shorter durationof administration.Rasa puspa, a Nirgandha kupipakwa rasayana, one among the mostextensively used drug in Phiranga roga, which contains Hingulotha parade, Suddha kasisaand Saindhava lavana in equal proportion. A pharmaceutical study was conducted to evaluatethe gradation of temperature, fuel duration of paka.009. CONCEPT OF HEENA SATTVA AND ITS ROLE IN MENTAL ILLNESSDr. K. Ravindra Bhat, Final Year MD, Manovigyan avum Manasaroga, Dept. of Kayachikitsa,V.P.S.V. Ayurveda College,Kottakkal. (Kerala state) At a given point of time the mental health of an individual is considered as a state ofsuccessful performance of mental functions, resulting in productive activities, fulfillingrelationships, attaining the ability of adapting to the change and coping with adversity. Each individual is having his own range of such personality characters, vision and abilityof reacting to the external world. In modern Psychology it is termed as ‘Temperament’. Ayurvedagives much emphasis to the temperamental factors in maintenance of health and productionof disease. Mental capabilities are - Pravara sattva, Madhyama sattva and Heena satva (Avarasattva / Alpa sattva) Persons having strong mental capabilities with features of sattva Saracome under ‘Pravara Satva’ and with moderate capabilities under Madhyama sattva. HeenaSattva (Alpa Satva) indicates a low level of higher mental qualities (Sattva) and relatively ahigher level of Raja and Tama (Doshas of Manas). So the individuals of this category will be having low mental capabilities, coping skills infrustration, threat; stressful situations, less control on impulses like - Shoka, Bhaya Krodha,Lobha etc. 4 December 1, 2, 3 - 2006 DGM Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital, Gadag - 582 103, Karnataka,

International Ayurvedic Atharva 2006Conference & AyurExpo Abstracts It is considered as a basic defect behind the causation of mental illnesses like Unmada.There are many important areas related to the concept of Heena Satva & its role in mentalillness like - Psychological considerations, factors influencing its causation, its role inpsychopathology of mental illnesses and methods of interventions.010. PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF DREAMS - AN AYURVEDIC AND MODERN APPROACHDr.M.Srikanth, M.D. Final Manasaroga, V.P.S. V Ayurveda College, Kottakkal, Prof Dr.M.P. EswaraSharma M.D. (Ay), V P.S. V.A. V. C, Kottakkal Awareness of sensations, thoughts and feelings experienced at a given moment iscalled consciousness. Dreams come under altered state of consciousness. Ayurveda considersDream as a state, where sense organs get exhausted and keep themselves away from theirrespective objects, but the mind continues to experience its perceptions. Generally dreamsoccur in natiprasupta stage [A meeting point between sleep and waking stage], which hassimilarities with stage I sleep. According to Charaka, all the three doshas in their exceedinglyaggravated state fill the manovahasrotamsi and cause terrible dreams in omnious situations.Eg. Nightmares [frightened dreams]. In natural sleep, both indriyas and mind are active. Indreaming sleep, indriyas are inactive but mind is active. In natural sleep the srotas are fullycovered with tamas; where as in dreaming sleep rajo dosha is active. The types of dreams,which were described by Charaka, will be very well explained by analyzing these most modernrecent research theories. The most recent research findings regarding the psychologicalconcepts of dreams have more similarities with the concept of dreams, which were described inAyurveda.011. INCORPORATION OF DRUG STANDARDIZATION TECHNIQUES: NEED &SIGNIFICANCE IN THE FIELD OF AVURVEDADr. Sandeep Vishnu Binorkar, M.D. Scholar, Dept. of Agadatantra avum Vidhi Vaidyaka,V.P.S.V. Ayurveda College, Kottakkal – 676501, Kerala State, Strong craving of man for health and to overcome several diseases is persisting fromtime immemorial. To tackle these entity diseases, Ayurveda has explained exhaustive list ofmedicines, which contains both, herbal as well as mineral substances. Classical texts ofRasashastra, which deals with the properties and the usages of such herbo-mineral preparations,have given equal emphasis on the safety and efficacy of these preparations. It also explainsspecific purificatory methods for raw drugs as well as certain confirmatory tests for finishedproducts, to rule out any sort of untoward effect.Even though after following all the possiblemeasures, incidences of toxicity due to Ayurvedic medicines are being heard frequently. Causesmay vary from identification of raw drugs to the adulteration.To avoid this catastrophe,incorporation of modern techniques such as Thin layer chromatography (TLC), High pressureliquid chromatography (HPLC), High performance liquid chromatography, for identification andstandardization of the raw drugs and application of infrared spectrophotometry (IR), Nuclearmagnetic resonance spectrometry (NMR), Atomic or Flame spectrophotometry, Electron spinresonance spectrometry (ESR), X-ray diffraction etc in finished products is the prime need ofthis era. Evaluation of ED50 and LD50 in case of preparations, which contains poisonoussubstances, is another important field for the standardization of Ayurvedic drugs. Otherparameters include Ph value, ash value and quantitative estimation of metals in the compounddrugs. Ayurveda is growing rapidly in stature, professionalism and acceptance. Proper use ofmodern techniques in Ayurveda is certainly going to help in achieving its prime aim, i.e. Healthfor all, and to emerge out hazards free medicines for the benefit of mankind! 5D.G.M.

Savalagimath, M.D. Scholar, Dept. of Agadatantra avum Vidhi Vaidyaka,V.P.S.V. Ayurveda College, Kottakkal – 676501, Kerala State, Agadatantra - being explained as a clinical branch of Ayurveda, considered as non-clinical. It also deals with late effects of Visha, not only acute. By understanding the conceptsof Dooshi Visha and Gara vislia, more justice can be given to the suffers of today’s world.Dooshi Visha - induced or naturally low potent poison stays for several years in the body without our knowledge and can cause simple Thrishna to sever Dooshyodara. Gara visha - anyartificial poison - potent and in sufficient quantity kills. Low potent and little in quantity cancause long-standing diseases. Today we are exposed to may poisons of various nature, potencyand in various ways. The environment is highly polluted; the crops are grown with the use ofvarious fertilizers and pesticides. We also exposed to many types of insects. In houses too,poison surrounds us in many forms. Whether they enter our body? Yes, but without ourknowledge. Then why we don’t consider and treat accordingly? Why today’s world is worriedabout pollution, adulteration, use of pesticides etc? - Because they are poisonous. The Vishais nothing but anything, which brings Vishada. Aaturabhoomi pariksha is explained very nicelyby Charaka achaarva, to understand the effect of Desha on patient. This can be used to ruleout possible poisons in our daily life. Agadatantra promises a better future for treating today’sdiseases, if understood and implanted properly.013. CLINICAL RESEARCHAND PROTOCOL DESIGNDr. Narayan Bavalatti, I -M.S, Dr.Manjusha R, H.O.D., Deptt. Of Shalya- Shalakya, I.P.G.T. &R.A., Jamnagar During the last fifty years, medical knowledge has advanced more rapidly than at anyother period in its history. New understandings, new methods of treatment, new diagnosticprocedures and new methods of prevention etc. are being introduced at an ever-increasingrate. Clinical research is very fruitful because it tells us how precisely the drug acts and bringsabout the effects. It also tells us what could be the possible antidote or the measures to counterthe effect due to the excess dosage.The success of clinical study depends on the detailedplanning. Protocol is a document that describes the background and rationale, the objectives,design, methodology, statistical considerations and organization of a trial. The protocol is abridge between idea and execution. It is the essential document for obtaining regulatory andethical approval and for obtaining funding. It also provides the framework for preparing apublication. The protocol is the most vital document for the success of a clinical trial.014.

About 20% of patient attending IPD and OPD’s requires emergency medicine andworldwide incidence is also significant. As in all systemic disorders, once the failure ofconservative treatment in all systematic disorders leads to fatal complications requiringemergency medicine. Rightly due to sophisticated emergency set up mortality and morbidityrates are decreasing world wise. With the intension of maintaining of healthy status Ayurveda preferring to avoidemergencies. But it describes certain diseases and medicines wherever required. Certainmedicines and procedures which cause sedation, reduces raise of temperature, prevent sudden 6 December 1, 2, 3 - 2006 DGM Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital, Gadag - 582 103, Karnataka,

This shows theknowledge of ancient Ayurvedic scholars like Charaka, Sushrutha, Vagbhata etc, in this regard.Chaines medicine has acquired greater importance by using extracts of Ayurvedic drugs inemergency practice like Kola, Duralabha etc. Certain metallic preparations, Jayapala, Lashunaetc, drugs in different diseases are explained. The treatment of apasmara, mada, murcha,Sanyasa etc, are described and principles adopted also holds good in present day also.Charaka, sushruta, Vagbhata and Bhaishajya ratnavali explains may emergency medicines forjwara, raktapitta, atisara and moorcha like conditions. Explanations of Matangavidhya shouldbe also considered. Emergency medicine, which is practiced in this modern era, is almostsimilar to the things described in our classic thousand of years ago. This paper explains aboutcertain indigenous drugs mentioned in our classics, which are usefull in emergency conditionswith their mode of action, utility in treating the patient.015. MANAGEMENT OF TUNDIKERI WITH LOKANATH RASADr. Arunkumar B. Biradar, 1st Yr. P.G., Dr. Dingari Lakshmana Chary. M.D. (Ayu), Ph. D. Professor P.G.,Dr. Shamsa Fiaz. M.D. (Ayu), (Ph. D.) Asst. Prof. & H.O.D. P.G. Dept., Dr. Ashwini Dhanpal. M.D. (Ayu).Lecturer. P.G. Department of Shalakyatantra, S.D.M.C.A. & H., Hassan. Tundikeri is a prevalent problem affecting in all ages, with repeated episodes. It is aTalugata vyadhi of Mukharoga. It occurs due to Ritu viparyaya, Mithya Ahara vihara, etc andSamsargaja in nature. It spread by the contact of infected saliva or nasal secretions.Pathologically, lymph glands located at posterior part of throat get inflamed by either bacterialor viral infection. Medical science though developed a lot the recurrence of the disease is still a problem,surgical extraction is not suitable for all. Hence, there is a need of simple parasurgical procedureto treat this disease.Acharyas mentioned number of therapies and medicaments to combat theailment like Kavala, Gandusha, Pratisarana, Shastrakarma, etc. The practice of Kshara karmais also specified in the classics. Acharya Sharangadhara explains an excellent remedy forRajayakshma in his Madhyama Khanda 12th chapter 83-85. But, in folk medicine this is beingused in the management of Tundikeri.016. POSTMENOPASUAL OSTEOPOROSIS IS AN AGE RELATED PHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGENOT A DISEASE AND AYURVEDIC PERSPECTIVESDr. Basavaraj S Hadapad, Department of Ayurveda, K.M.C. Manipal, Karnataka, India - 576 104 Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease and it is characterized byasymptomatic to severe pain from fractures because of decreased bone mass due to normalage related changes (swabhavika) in bone remodeling (BR) as well as extrinsic and intrinsicfactors. BR is regulated by several factors including nutrition, physical activity and race, notonly the estrogens and calcium. The end result of bone remodeling process (BRP) is thatresorbed bone is replaced by an equal amount of new bone tissue. After the age of 30 to 45the resorption and formation process become imbalanced and resorption exceeds formation,which can be taken as increased catabolic Asthidhatwagni. The imbalanced BRP becomesexaggerated in postmenopausal women causes osteoporosis but not in all estrogen deficientpostmenopausal women.Over the past few decades it is taught at medical schools that hormonaland calcium deficiencies are the main causes. Because of this preaching, hormone replacementtherapy (HRT) has been used increasingly to prevent and cure PMO and chronic diseases bythe medical graduates at global level. But based on patho-physiology of PMO there are no 7D.G.M. Post Graduate Studies & Research Center Gadag - Karnataka, India. 7
  9. 9. Atharva 2006 International Ayurvedic Abstracts Conference & AyurExposcientific convincing enough clinical evidences to use HRT and calcium. This view is supportedby recent conclusion of many clinical trials of HRT that is “do not use estrogen / progesteroneto prevent chronic diseases” including PMO, risks are higher than benefits; those are ovarian& breast cancer, stroke, etc. As PMO is asymptomatic until fractures occur, for Ayurvedicdiagnosis of Asthisoushirya bone densitometry test is must. As PMO is because of age relatedchanges etc, curative approach by any system of health delivery may not be successful, butcan be prevented by Dinacharya, Rutucharya and Asthi pradoshaja Chikitsa includingsamanaguna dravyas.017. COUNSELING IN DEPRESSIONDr.Diggavi Guru Prasanna, Dr. Madhav Diggavi, Dr. J.V.Murgesh, Dr. Srimukund Alur, TaranathGovt. Ayurvedic Medical College, Bellary. In Ayurveda Dhee Dhairya Aatmaadi Vignanam,Satvavajaya and Ashwashana are majornon-pharmacological counseling therapies similar to the contemporary systems. Clinically“Depression is a feeling of Hopelessness which is a very common presentation in day to daylife of every individual. The sadness due to substantial cause is a normal expected phenomenabut if it is developed without substantial stimuli then that uncontrollable condition comes underthe purview of clinical psychologist, psychiatrist and counseling, depression is as common asanxiety, anger etc hence its also categorized under mood disorders. According to AcharyaChakrapani -The basic psychopathology of depression in general is due to dejection anddespair or due to not fulfilling of desires or unwanted fulfilling coming true (Anistasya Labha).Clinically the depression has various explanations in Ayurveda under complex terminologiescontextually. Vishaada, Avasaada are major terminologies of Ayurveda denoting depression.Inspite of advanced drug research in the management of Depression the equal importance ofcounseling cannot be forgotten. The general line of treatment adopted here in depression was counseling (Ashwashana)where in the basic modification of the living style disorders correcting small problematic issueswas considerated with Satwawajaya (i.e., psycho behavioural therapy) included. Satwawajayameans withdrawal of mind from unwholesome objects or it’s the treatment by self control. Acharyacharaka defines it as a mind controlling therapy in which stress has been applied on refrainingthe mind from unwholesome things or objects which includes Manonigraha. Prajnaparadha is the main cause for mental disorder including Anavasthita Cittatvawhich is outcome of impairment of Dhee Dhrthi and Smrithi and the improvement of the DheeDhrthi & Smrithi comes under Satawawajaya Chikitsa . Rajas & Tamas which are considered asthe Pathogenic factors of mind can be treated by divine (spiritual) and scriptural knowledge (Jnana & Vignana), Patience memory and education (Ca, Su 1/58) and hence in the currentpaper the role of counseling in Depression will be discussed.018.

The Nasya yoga in HBV induced Jaundice has a definite role on the bio-chemical parameters, other objective parameters and symptomatology. Further it also improvesthe liver function. It can be stated that Nasya Karma is effective in HBV Induced Jaundice. Thevirus causing the HBV induced Jaundice may become inactive and driven away through thenasal route.019. RASRASARAKTAGATA SNEHA VRIDDHI VINISCHAYA (HYPERLIPIDEMIA) AND TO STUDYTHE EFFICACY OF CHARAKOKTA APATARPAN KWATH ON ITVd. MANOJ PARAMANANDA SAHOO, scholar, Vd. NARAYAN R. SABOO, Reader & HOD, Dept.ofSanskrit Samhita, R.A.Podar Medical College, Worli , Mumbai -18. Due to advent of technological advances in every field of life, the physical efforts requiredto perform any kind of work have also remarkably reduced. Due to the reduced physical effortsand improper food habits, many life style related diseases are rampant in the 21 st century.Hyperlipidemia (RasRasaraktagata Sneha Vriddhi) is one of the life style related disease whichis now a days very common even in young age group as young as 25 yrs. old. Hyperlipidemiapredisposes to other major diseases which can be life threatening e.g. CVA, IHD, Peripheralvascular disease (PVD). The symptoms which are found in RasRasaraktagata sneha Vriddhiare quite comparable to that of Hyperlipidemia. According to Ayurveda the above disease is a Santarpanajanya Vyadhi as mentionedby Acharya Charaka in Cha. Su. 23rd. Hence in this study the drug Apatarpana kwatha describedby Charak(Cha. Su. 23rd.) is selected to observed the effect on Rasaraktagata snehavriddhi(Hyperlipidemia). Hance Santarpanjanya Rasaraktagata Vikrita Sneha Vriddhi can be correlatedwith hyperlipidaemia We have Studied 30 Patients of hyperlipidaemia which were described as in our planeof study - compairing the Pathological report of lipid profil before and after treatment as well assome particular signs and symptoms as mentioned in Ayurvedic literatures.Due to the abovecorrelation Rasaraktagata Sneha Vriddhi must be compared with hyperlipidaemia of modernseience Ayurveda is not just a medicine Ayurveda is a way of lifeD.G.M.

Department of Shalakyatantra, S.D.M.C.A.&H., Hassan. PUTINASA is a Nasagata vyadhi, it is one of the common clinical conditions found inday to day medical practice. It affects the both sex with irrespective of age. The cardinal featuresof Putinasa include foul smell from the nose and mouth. Now a day, the prevalence of thiscondition is increased due to excess exposure to avashyaya, raja, dhuma, asathmya gandha,mityahara vihara sevana etc causes. Its recurrent attacks and the incomplete treatment makethe disease chronic with several complications. Medical science though developed a lot therecurrence of the disease is still a problem. Hence, there is a need of simple, economic remedyto treat this ailment. Objective of the treatment includes “Giving a person, the possible betterquality of life”. From this perspective, a study was undertaken in S.D.M.C.A. & H, Hassan tostudy the effect of “SHIGRU TAILA NASYA” in PUTINASA. By taking this into consideration, 20cases of Putinasa were selected randomly and shigru taila nasya for 7 days was given. In thisstudy a significant response was obtained.

On the other hand Ayurvedic lexiconshave mentioned amalaki kwath shirodhara as suitable therapy to promote adequate sleepwhich is an external therapy having less cost, free from side effects, requires short termtreatment and providing long term affects that’s why I have selected this topic for discussionwhich I shall present in-detail during presentation.023. WHY DO WE AGE?Dipti .G. Godbole, Rohini H.D , Final year BAMS, Dr Prashanth G.S, Dept of Kayachikitsa,AMC & PG Centre, Davangere The mode or art of living of an individual is called “LIFE”. Life is a mixture of joys andsorrows. We come across many moments and irrespective of any kind of moment weathergood or bad, today’s moment becomes tomorrow’s memory. One should enjoy the life becausethe gift of “LIFE” IS THE “LIFE” it self. Once an individual life begins, his life-span begins at thevery same moment, and thus we can say, life of an organism and life-span goes hand-in-hand.Nature expects two things from an organism, one is the existence and other is the reproduction.When once the two things are successfully completed, that individual organism in a wellorganized manner, it will be made to get extinguished from the scene. This well organizedremovalitself is termed as “ageing / senility”, which is the last segment of once life span. Aquestion arises “WHY DO AN INDIVIDUAL AGE?” Many theories have been propounded as ananswer to this question.024. MEDOVRIDDHI (OBESITY) & ITS RESEARCH METHODDr. N.

It became a worldwide concern among medicos and stands unabated.Successful drug treatments are not fully beneficial up to satisfaction and requirement. Its originis very primitive among the mankind, which has been increased, in the present era. Ayurveda, the most ancient remedial resource under human possession has slaked anumber of remedies for over weight cases .The clinical condition of over weight is designatedas Medovriddhi/ Sthaulya/ Medoroga /medodosha/ obesity along with its clinical features andtreatment. Clinical research occupies an important place in Ayurvedic Research programme. Thisis the only area where one can do some real work and deliver something really beneficial tomankind in the interest of academic and therapeutic purpose. That’s why I have selected thistopic, which comprises of detail regarding parameters to study (both in Ayurveda & Modernpoint of view), Ethical consideration, duration of trial etc. with respect to obesity that I shallpresent in detail during presentation.025.

Patients were thoroughly examined both subjectively and objectively.Detailed history taken and findings of the examination were noted. Confirmation tests to confirmthe diagnosis were made. Routine investigati1ons were done to exclude the other pathologies. In the present study aragwadadhi gana kashaya was used instead of amalaki kashya. PASI(Psoriasis Area Severity Index) score was considered as both subjective and objectiveparameters. Because it covers subjective (Itching, Scaling, Erythema, and Thickness) andobjective parameter (Area) Along with this triggering factors like Krodha, Bhaya, Chittodwega,Shoka are also studied and results were obtained. However, they were not considered for theoverall result. After treatment, 8 patients (i.e. 26.66%) showed complete remission, 7 patients(i.e.25.90%) showed marked improvement, 4 patients (i.e. 13.33%) showed moderateimprovement and 9 patients (i.e.30%) showed mild improvement and no response was foundin 5 patients (i.e.16.66). Takradhara is a modification of the Shirahseka procedure, whichcomes under the type of Moordhni taila . PASI score showed highly significant. It was observedthat the procedure was highly effective in scalp and palmo-plantar variety of psoriasis. Reductionin symptoms like scaling and itching was found in all most all the patients. In head affectedpatients, the therapy provided complete remission in almost all the cases, but in some cases itdoes not even had a minimal impact. Significant reduction was found in triggering factors likeBhaya, Krodha, Chitthodvega.026. PHARMACEUTICAL STANDARDIZATION OF CHAKRIKA W.S.R. TO SHANKA BHASMADr Pramod C. Baragi, Nimit Baldania, Dr B.

GujaratAyurved University, Jamnagar -361008 Rasoushadis are gaining an important position because of its high potency, quick actionin smaller dose and long shelf life. Along with this it is also discarded because of its toxiceffects due to improper preparation. But when we look at the methods of Marana they differaccording to different authors. A keen study of these processes may disclose the hiddenlacunae. For example different medias are used in different processes and some intermediateprocess is not much clear and hence the products may naturally be different in quality. Researchworks since decades are giving stress to the significance and scientificity of Ayurvedicformulations especially the metallic preparations in various centers of India. For preparationof Bhasma ,Chakrika nirmana is an essential process, firstly the metals etc. are intended toBhavana and then Chakrika are prepared and dried. But there is no any specific referenceavailable regarding size, shape, weight and thickness of Chakrika in our classic. So lots ofquestions arise in the field of Rasashastra. So here an attempt will be made to standardizeChakrika in term of size, shape, weight and thickness. Here Shankha Bhasma was selectedbecause of its easv availability, cost effective and less time consuming.027.

It is manifested by accompanying with hypertension, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis,ischemic heart disease etc. As it always possesses problem owing to the state of helplessnessdue to limitations of enjoying an active life, Ayurveda (Charaka) describes it as one among theeight most unwanted personalities (Astanindaniya purusa). Inspite of advanced technology and research, all therapies are failed to give the bestresult for obesity. So much researchers focus on new drugs to combat obesity.The presentmodel is one of them. Katu, Kashaya rasa are attributed to have Karsana and Upachayaharaproperties where as Tikta have Lekhana and Meda upasoshana karma. Hence the drug shouldbe of Katu, Tikta and Kashaya rasa dominant. Befitting to the principle, Brihat SimhanadaGuggulu (Bhaisajya Ratnavali ) is seems to be appropriated. The probable action of thedrugs depends upon there Rasapanchaka.It was found that the proportion of ingredientsshows predominance of Katu (76.19%), Tikta (61.9%) and Kashaya (47.62%) as compared toMadhura (33.33% ) ,Amla (14.29%) and Lavana( 4.76%)028.

Among theMukha rogas “Mukha Paka” is considered as Pittaja Nanatmaja and Rakta Pradoshaja Vikaracharacterized by Vedanaayukta Vrana in the Mukha Kuhara.The Lakshanas of Mukha pakasuch as Rakta varna yukta vrana, Tanu, Teevraruja, Teevradaha, Tiktaasyata etc (based onthe vitiation of doshas ) are seen. It can be co-related to a clinical entity of Stomatitis. It ischaracterized by painful, single or multiple shallow hyperemic ulceration in the oral mucosa,gums, tongue and lips with recurrent episodes. Among the various procedures mentioned for Mukha Paka, Gandusha is one which isexplained more effective. Among the single remedies Yashtimadhu Kashaya (Gandusha) whichis having both Shamana and Ropana property is selected for the present study, which iseconomic and commonly available.Previous Research Works are reviewed, shows that maximumnumber of patients were suffering with recurrent episodes. Many research works have beenconducted on Mukha Paka in general. But till now no medicine is established. Hence the presentstudy is aimed to establish the effect of Yashtimadhu Kashaya Gandusha in Mukha Paka tostandardize the drug, duration and frequency of the procedure. To asses this a clinical trail was conducted on 20 patients with Yashtimadhu KashayaGandusha in S.D.M.C.A & H. Hassan.

The causes ofArdhavabhedaka are excessive intake of ruksha padarthas, Adhyashana, Purva vata sevana,Atimaithuna (excessive coitus), Vegadharna (suppressing of natural urges), Athishrama(excessive work) etc, in which pain is appreciable in one half of the Shiras, shanka, Bhru,Kapala, and in Karna pradesha. The attacks of Ardhavabhedaka will be once in three days,fifteen days and once in a month as per the range of vitiation. It can be correlated with migrainebased on the similarity in etiology, pathology, symptoms and treatment principles.Headache isa common problem in India and Abroad in these days. In that around 35% of patients aresuffering from migraine headache. As per acharya Charaka and modern science it is said thatArdhavabhedaka if left untreated it leads to diseases like deafness and blindness. Hence anearly treatment intervention is needed for Ardhavabhedaka.Migraine does not shorten the life,but in severe cases a state of chronic exhaustion may occurs. Very rarely persistent cerebralsymptoms remain with some irreversible vascular changes. A large group of people fail to getthe desired results due to visiting the hospital in advanced stage treatment. In spite of advancedmodern technology and medicine the treatment of migraine is not complete. Application ofAjamodadi Arka lepa to the frontal head for 7 days proved to be effective in the managementof Ardhavabedhaka.031.

Itsincidence increases with advancing age, at least 50% of people over the age of 50years havesome degree of haemorrhoidal symptoms. Now a day every person suffers from any one of thecomplaints of piles during their life time. Sushrutha, the pioneer in the field of Surgery, whiledescribing the Chikitsa of Arshas, emphasized on the procedure of Kshara karma and told thatArshas which are Mrudu, Prasrutha, Avaghada, and Uchruta should be treated only by Ksharakarma. The effect of Kshara is praised so much that it can replace Sastra karma, as it does thefunctions of Chedana, Bhedana, and Lekhana karmas without using Sastras. The Apamarga Pratisaraneeya Kshara karma is widely used in our day-to-day practicewith good results. Research work had also been made with Apamarga Pratisaraneeya Kshara 14 December 1, 2, 3 - 2006 DGM Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital, Gadag - 582 103, Karnataka,

But the main problem that is faced duringpost-operative period is, some patients complain of moderate to severe burning pain in earlypost-operative period. Considering this problem I justified to find out a preparation which is lessirritant, less painful and which has better acceptability in management of Ardra arshas. Manydrugs are mentioned in the classics for the preparation of Kshara. Susrutha had mentionedAragwada as one among the drugs used for preparation of Kshara, which acts as Pitta shamaka,Daha prashamana, Shoola prashamana, Kandugna, Samshodaka. Hence, here an attempt ismade to see the “Effect of Aragwada Pratisaraneeya kshara in the management of ArdraArshas”032. A CLINICAL STUDY ON PRATISARANEEYA KSHARA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF RECTALPROLAPSEDr. Pradeep S. Shindhe, 2nd year P.G. Dr. P. N.

Rectal Prolapse is a surgical condition, occurs when a mucosal or full thickness layer ofrectal tissue slides through the anal orifice. This usually occurs during evacuation. Initially,patients are usually unaware of this event. If not treated properly, this will lead to irreducibilityand gangrene. Objective of medicine includes “Giving a person, the possible better quality oflife”. However, with repeated episodes it worsens and eventually a portion of the rectum beginsto be pushed through the anal canal or to become prolapsed. Sushruta’s Para surgical procedures in treating surgical diseases are considered to bea great contribution to the field of surgery. ‘Gudabhramsha’ with its clinical presentation, signsand symptoms can be compared with ‘Rectal Prolapse’. Pratisaraneeya Kshara Karma isdescribed in ‘Arsha Chikitsa’, in the context of ‘Brushta Guda’ (Rectal Prolapse), which is saidto be the effective one. However, the idea of present work is to find out the effectiveness ofApamarga Pratisaraneeya Kshara Karma in the management of Gudabhramsha, and open thenew way of treatment which are simple procedure, economical, better acceptability, andalternative to surgery. To assess this, one is Degree of Prolapse and the other is anal sphincter tonicity, whichis measured by a self – designed instrument “Hemantha Kumar Modified Sphincterometer”The study shows that Pratisaraneeya Kshara is having a significant effect on Rectal Prolapse033.

Being a globalproblem since ages numerous efforts have been made to prevent post-operative sepsis. Despiteof this rapid changes in the concept of management of infection ,the rate of occurrence ofinfection has not been brought near to zero.

In day-to-day life, ankle is one of the most common sites for acute musculo-skeletalinjuries and sprains, which account for 75% of ankle injuries. Acute ankle trauma is responsiblefor 10-30% of sports related injuries in young athletes. Each year an estimated one millionpersons present to physician with acute ankle injuries. More than 40% of ankle sprain havethe potential to cause chronic problems. These injuries appear to be simple, but are morepainful and hamper the routine activities of the patient. Ankle sprain is characterized by pain,swelling with or without deformity. In classics there is no direct reference regarding sprain andits management. Sushruta in the context of Asthi-Bhagna has mentioned “Patanabhighatadwa”which means Patana, Abhighata or both are the main causes for sprain, where he has advisedthe application of Sheeta Pradeha to reduceVedana and Shopha. There is no referenceregarding the number of application and duration.035.

Some of the so-called Ayurveda Associations have believed to have representedthe system in the consultation exercise and failed to do justice to the cause of Ayurveda. Themedicines control agency (MCA) in UK has been very active in bringing to court the Vaidyaswho make wild claims on their products without proving the safety, efficacy, standardization andstability of medicines. In the Europe the labeling of dietary supplement cannot many any claims of therapeuticefficacy. But the very fact remains the same that 80% of the world population relies on herbalmedicines. At present WHO is taking an official in development of traditional treatments inorder to facilitate its aim of making wealth care available for all. In India inherent lack of aggressiveness in marketing adds to our limited internationalshare. So the current needs are our focus should be on value addition most entrants desire toexport crude herbs or semi-processed materials. Building brands, not selling as commodities.The Indian Government must also take up the challenges earnestly and work with problems.037. TRADITIONAL AYURVEDIC PREPARATION “GANDHAKA PUSHPA”Dr D. V.

Belavadi Lecturer, PK Dept Ayurveda gives priority and prescribes measures for preventing the occurrence of suchailments and for maintaining as well as promoting the positive health of an individual in order tokeep him healthy and happy, both physically and mentally. Shiro Vasti is one such excellentprocedure authenticated for the treatment of several diseases connected with shiras and nervoussystem. Its therapeutic utility for giving cure to patients suffering from chronic insomnia andschizophrenia is well known. Imagination of any living creature without head is not possible. Soconsidering the importance of head Acharyas had explained the head as ‘Uttamanga’ and‘Urdwaha mulam’ In chikitsa also manasika dosha chikitsa is given more importance thanshareerika dosha chikitsa. Shirovasti is explained under Masthishkya i.e. the one which ishitakara to masthishka. Vagbhata considers abhyanga, pichu, seka and shirovasti under Murdhnitaila. Among all the four, shirovasti is considered as pradhanatama because it has the additionaleffect of shodhana. It is most effective in vata vyadhis, shirogatavyadhis and manasika vyadhis.As it is well known fact that ‘indriyastu mano natha mano nathastu marutaha’ vata is believed tohave control over the manasika doshas. Shirovasti, as it is one of the snehana procedures ishaving a major role in the treatment of manasika doshas by controlling vata. We cannot findany direct reference regarding the mode of action of Shiro vasti. So, this paper tries to explainthe probable mode of action of Shirovasti with its practical utility.D.G.M.

P.G.Scholar, Dr.P.G.Subbanagouda, Department of Post-Graduate studiesin Kayachikitsa, Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya, Hubli – 24 (Karnataka) The increase in prevalence of Diabetes in developing nations like India is attributed tourbanization and sedentary lifestyle. Highest of Diabetes mellitus patients live in India. 10% ofthe population is suffering from Diabetes in the world. At present India have 35 million diabetes,which is likely to reach 80 million by 2030.The long standing hyperglycemia adversely affectsmultiple organ systems, especially heart, kidney, eyes and sensory nerves. Diabeticpolyneuropathy leads to burning sensation in soles, feet and parasthesiae. The loss of sensationin feet plays an important cause for the development of pressure sores which does not healand ultimately terminating into diabetic gangrene. The development of gangrene forces thedoctor to take drastic life saving or limb saving amputation which makes the patient permanentlyimmobile. Hence in diabetics prevention and management of polyneuropathy is of utmostimportance. In Ayurveda we find the laxanas such as pada daha, pada harsha and padasuptata in the Madhumeha roga which can be correlated with Diabetic polyneuropathy. Usuallyin uncontrolled diabetic patients Diabetic polyneuropathy is very commonly seen. Efficientcontrol of Diabetes will reduce Diabetic polyneuropathy to an greater extent.

As RA is a systemic disease so with progression it will cause anorexia, weightloss, joint abnormality, pericarditis, mitral stenosis etc. and other related conditions. It is aknown fact that “It licks the joints and bites the heart”. AYURVEDA has given in depth information of various joint disorders in which, AMAVATAis one of such joint disorders which can be compared with RA. Amavata is rasavaha, srotojanyavikara and Mandagni is considered as an important contributing factor for its Aetiopathogenesis.When Amavata gets exacerbated it becomes most distressing of all other vyadhis. The principaltreatment of Amavata as described in Ayurveda is based on “Langhan”, “Deepana” and“Pachana” of Apakwa ama rasa followed by suppuration of aggravated vata. Aetiologically, Aetio-pathologically, clinically there is great resembles to that of Amavatatold in Ayurveda. Proper efforts are needed to formulate economic efficacious and affordabletherapy. 22 December 1, 2, 3 - 2006 DGM Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital, Gadag - 582 103, Karnataka,
