Howeve4 there is much more to be donein every aspect of Ayurveda in this competitive and scientific era .
  43. 43. l lPRESENT SCENARIO IN THE EDUCATION .:. As stated earlier, there are a large number of educational institutions. However intensive training in Ayurveda, both theoretical and practical is being provided only in a f-ew institu- tions. t Number of qualified teachers in most of the institutions are minimal and do not even fulfill the requirement of minimum standards. * Many teachers though working on part time basis are shown as full timers. In some of the institutions. they are only on rolls but physically present only when there are visitors from C.C.I.M or UniversitY. * Many others come only for one or two hours as per teaching schedule. They never utilize library and do not participate in the departmental enlistment. * Extra curricular activities in most of the institutions are negligible. * In some of the institutions, even classes are not regularly conducted. Bogus attendance is shown in attendance registers.PRBSENT SCENARIO IN THB EDUCATION * Many students are also not serious in teaching and training. Their objective is to obtain degree by hook or crook. * The attraction of degree of Ayurveda is to practice modern medicine * After Supreme Court judgment and restrictions by many State Governments and also objection made by Medical Council of India, Indian Medical Association, etc. practice of modern medicine by Ayurvedic Graduates is becoming very difficult * Hospitals attached to Ayurvedic Colleges, in most of the cases, is also without patient or have only a few patients * Dissection halls are without cadavers so there is no arrangement for teaching and practice of Anatomy * There are many such lacunae and I need not explain all those before you. Many teachers and students present in the conference must be aware about many of these difficulties. We must make proper efforts to strengthen Ayurvedic education SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN AYI]RVEDIC EDUCATION * The minimum standards should be maintained by all Ayurvedic Colleges without exceptions * Teachers not only be regular but work hard for obtaining latest technical and scientific knowl- edge of the subject concerned * They also be in touch with scientists and counterparts in medical colleges to acquire up-to- date knowledge * Deep knowledge of Sanskrit and working knowledge of computers are absolutely necessary, for every teacher of Ayurveda * The teaching should be based on applied aspect so that it should be convincing to students * In addition to Ayurvedic teaching, latest diagnostic methods should be taught to students and equipments must be made available in the libraries
  44. 44. SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN AYURVEDIC EDUCATION + Bedside clinical training for clinical subjects is necessary so that students can gain practical knowledge * Knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine should be paramount. f{ow a medicine acts and uhat are the main ingredients of that medicine should be taught to the students t In addition to attendance in class rooms, attendance in library and reading room should also be observed Teachers training program must be made compulsory for further promotion etc. Consortium of subject teachers on regional basis is organized to learn from each others expenence + Teachers and students must understand that they are for Ayurveda and devote their for upliftment of Ayurveda and also health and medicare through AyurvedaRESBARCH IN AYURVEDA * Coordination among institutions engaged in research is absolutely essential * Research should be basically to fill up the gap of knowledge essentially needed for Ayurvedic teachers and practitioners. ltr Ayurvedic treatment even now is most effective in diseases, which occur due to functional disorders in the body. These are basically due to Mithya Ahara and Vihara. Diabetes, Hyper- tension, Gastro intestinal disorders, etc. are in this group. Ayurvedic physicians are in search of Ayurveclic medicine, which will reduce Blood Glucose, level or increase of blood pressure on time bound basis. These are available but need to be proved scientifically. Research organizations must work on such projects on a priority basis. * Big Pharmaceutical concerns of Ayurveda should also invent some medicines of such imme- diate utility instead of maintaining their R & D only for namesake.RESEARCH IN AYURVEDA * The ready made answer to students and physicians about action of Ayurvedic drugs - horv and why is the need of time + Golden triangle for Research in Ayurveda involving CSIR and ICMR with CCRAS is a welcome step. However, objective should be very clear and results must be on a time bound basis * Results of Research so far conducted be published subject wise.DRUGS AND MEDICINAL PLANTS * Availability of genuine and effective Ayurvedic drugs must be ensured. Drug control or,sani- zations should work effectively. * The Propaganda of reaction of drugs of mineral and metallic origin be rebutted on scientific lines. Nano technology is well known now worldwide. The Ayurvedic Pharmacy is mother of Nano technology. This aspect must be forcefully spread. * Medicinal plants, which are not available in required quantity, be cultivated on lar-se scale. The farmers should be encouraged by paying them more than what they can get by farming of cereals.
  45. 45. * Banning or licensing of use of drugs of Animal origin like Musk, Coral. Horn of deer, etc" should be lifted for Ayurvedic drug purposes. Likewise availability of Opium, Cannabis, etc" for Ayurvedic drug industry be liberalized.* Export of Ayurvedic drugs be encouraged.aa"a Preparation of patent and proprietary Ayurvedic drugs by using total extract of drugs of vegetable origin be encouraged.* Many other aspects may also be important but only some pressing issues have been raised due to paucity of time+ I hope that these suggestions will be taken up seriously for future growth of Ayurveda I

  47. 47. IMMUNITY PROMOTING EFFECTS OF RASAYANA AND VAJIKARANA DRUGS Prof. Gurdip Singh Director PG Studies SDM College of Ayurveda, Hassan & Formerly Dean Gujarat Ayurveda University Jamnagar Ayurveda does not merely believe in adding the number of years to life but it advocate to add life to the each year. This may be one of the reasons that the first aim of Ayurveda is to preserve and promote the healthy of healthy persons. To fulfill this aim Ayurveda maintains two separate branches viz. Rasayana and Vajikarana since the time immemorial. Rasayana mainly deals with promotion of physical and mental health and Vajikarana is for promotion of sexual health. The properly and timely use of Rasayana drugs promote youthfulness, provides longevity, memon. intelligence, complexion, body glow and best physical strength as well as of senses (Charaka Chikitsa uI). All these actions of Rasayana indicate towards the fact that by undergoing the Rasayana therapv one can live a long span of youth life, full of vigor and free from diseases as well as adverse effects of aging. But such a span of life is possible only when one has a strong resistance and general immunitl against the diseases. Therefore,. it can be postulated that Rasayana drugs may have immunity improving effect. Now a day prevention of the diseases is achieved by immunization specifically against the eachF, disease. But the number of the diseases is so much that practically it is not possible to immunize a person against all the diseases. On the other hand the concept of Rasayana seems to increase the general immunity so that one can live a long span of youthful life free from the diseases. It may provide an umbrella against the diseases and aging by promoting the physical and mental health. All these points generate an idea that Ayurveda believes in promoting the general immunity of a person so that he can fight out any type of disease at its very onset. The concept of Vyadhi Kshamatva is clearly available in Charaka Samhita, wherein it is mentioned that the persons who are neither obese nor thin, who are having well functioning muscular, blood and bone tissues; who are brought up on wholesome and nourishing diet, and who are psychologically strong do not suffer from the diseases frequently and if suffer then they can tolerate it well because of having good immunity (Vyadhi Kshamatva). On the other hand the persons who are either obese or thin, who are not having well functioning muscular, blood and bone tissues, who are brought up on unwholesome and un-nourishing diet, and who are psychologically weak are unable to tolerate the diseases as well suffer from the diseases frequently. It is due to diminished state of immunity (Vyadhi Kshamatva) in such persons (Charaka Samhita Sutra 28:7). Chakrapani has further classified Vyadhi Kshamatva into two type viz. Vyadhi Bala Virodhani (passive) and Vyadhi Utpada Pratbandhaka (active). In addition the concepts of three types of Bala viz" 1l
  48. 48. lSahaja (natural), Kala (seasonal) and Yukti (acquired) and Pratyanika Bala (tissue resistance) are alsothere. It is obvious from the foregoing that of general immunity (Vyadhi Kshamatva) is present a conceptin Ayurveda since the period of Charaka Samhita. For this purpose Rasayana drugs were particularly used.Other measures used for increasing the Vyadhi Kshamatva were Vajikarana, seasonal administration ofShodhana and practicing the rules of Dina-Charya, Sad-Vritta and Achara Rasayana. To prove the hypothesis that Rasayana drugs may have immunity promotion effects, Singh, Gurdip(1982) canied out an experimental study and showed that Vacha (Acorus columus), Shatavari (Asparagusracemosus) and Mandukaparni (Hydrocotyle asiatica) significantly increase the serum humoral antibodiesin rabbits. Out of these three drugs the effect of Mandukapami (Hydrocotyle asiatica) was consideredbetter. Encouraged from the results of the above mentioned experimental study, further studies wereundertaken on human beings to evaluate the immunity promotion effects of certain Rasayana drugs viz.Mandukaparni (Hydrocotyle asiatica), Ashvagandha (Withania somnifera), Guduchi , (Tinosporacordifolia), Amalaki (Embelica officinalis), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Varahikanda (Diascoreabulbifera) and milk and Vajikaran drug- Kapikacchu (Mucuna pruriens). Patients and Methods: The body maintains its immunity through immunoglobulins, which areclassified into five groups viz. IgA, IgG, IgM, IgE and IgD. Out of these IgE is related mainly withallergic response and at the time of conducting this study the function of IgD was not known, ThereforeIgA, IgG and Igm were selected as parameters for this study. The main functions of these immunoglo-bulins are as follow:IgA: Protects mucous membranes,IgG: Provides general immunity,IgM: It is a firstclass immunoglobulin with 10 sites to destroy ten antigens at a time. Measurement of Immunoglobulin: Immunoglobulins-IgA, IgG and Igm were measured by usingTripartigen plates of Behringweke (Pfizer) before and after the treatment.The duration of treatment in allthe groups was one month. The other details are mentioned along with findings of each group of thetreatment. Immunity Promoting Effects of Mandukaparni (Hydrocotyle asiatica) : Twelve aged patientswho were frequently suffering from seasonal diseases such as common-cold, phyringitis etc were includedin this group. These patients were administered Mandukaparni powder in the dose of 3 gm three timesa day with water for one month.The results of this study showed that Mandukaparni caused significantincrease in the serum IgA and IgM levels of the patients of this group. Immunity Promoting Effects of Ashvagandha (Withania somnifera) : Twenty two patients ofallergic rhinitis and phyringitis were studied in this series. They were randomly divided into two groups.The patients of first group were administered powder of Ashvagandha in the dose of 6 gm twice a daywith ghee for one month. The patients of control group were kept on placebo for one month.The resultsof this study showed that Ashvagandha highly significantly (P<0.001) increased rhe serum IgA, IgM andIgG in comparison to control group. It was also observed that the recurrence of these diseases wasprevented by the treatment ranging from six months to one year. , Immunity Promoting Effects of Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) : A group of aged persons wasadministered powder of Guduchi in the dose of 4 gm twice a day for one month. The results of this studyshowed that Guduchi significantly (P<0.05) increased the serum IgA. 12
  49. 49. Immunty Promoting Effects of Amalaki (Emtrelica officinalis): The immunity promotion effectof Amalaki was evaluated in both aged persons and young volunteers. The volunteers of both the groupswere administered powder of Guduchi in the dose of 4 gm twice a day with water for one month-Theresults of these two studies showed that Amalaki significantly increases the serum IgA in aged personsand it significantly increased serum IgM in healthy young volunteers. Immunity Promoting Effects of Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) : The powder of Shatavariwas administered to a group of healthy volunteers in the dose of 4 gm twice a day with water for onemonth.It has been shown in this study that Shatavari significantly increases (P<0.05) the serum IgA andIgM levels. Immunity Promoting Effects of Varahikanda (Diascorea bulbifera) : 11 aged persons weretreated with the powder of Varahikanda administered in the dose of 4 gm twice a day for one month.Ithas been reported that Varahikanda significantly increases serum IgA and IgM levels. Immunty Promoting Effects of Atibala (Abutilon indicum) : Atibala (Abutilon indicum) is aRasayana drug commonly used for Vata disorders. Its powder was administered in the dose of 6gm trvicea day with ghee and hot milk to a group of aged persons. The duration of treatment was one month.Theresults of this study showed Atibala does not cause significant increase in any of the immunoglobulin.On the other hand it caused slight 4nd insignificant decrease in the serum IgG level Immunty Promoting Effects of Milk : According to Ayurveda milk is Ajasrika Rasayana i.e. itis to be taken daily in the diet to get continuous Rasayana effect. Therefore the immunity promotion effectof milk was also studied. For this purpose the aged persons were given 400m1 of milk twice a day forone month.The results of this study showed that rnilk significantly increases serum IgA, AgG and I-eMof the aged persons of this series. Immunty Promoting Efiects of Kapikacchu (Mucuna pruriens) : Kapikacchu is a well knorvnVajikarana drug. Its effect on the immunoglobulin was also studied. For this purpose a group of 11 agedpersons was treated with powder of seeds of Kapikacchu administered in the dose of 4 gm twice a da1with water for one month.It has been found that Kapikacchu significantly (P<0.05) increased the serumIgM level. Discussion : The body maintains its immunity through immunoglobulin, which are classified intofive groups viz.IgA, IgG, IgM, IgE and IgD. Out of these IgE is related mainly with allergic responseand at the time of conducting this study the function of IgD was not known, therefore IgA, IgG and Igmwere selected as parameters for this study. The main function of these immunoglobulins was as follorv: IgA: Protects Mucous Membranes,IgG: General Immunity,IgM: First class immunoglobulin withi0 sites Immunoglobulin A: IgA is the primary immunoglobulin of all mucosal surfaces and exocrinesecretions. It is secreted in colostrum, saliva, tears, mucous membrane and other external secretions. Itforms the first line of humoral defense against infections of Respiratory and GI Tracts. It forms aprotective coating over mucous membranes and thus behaves as an antiseptic coat. IgA group of antibod-ies also contain some types of antibacterial antibodies which gives immunity against diphtheria andtetanus (exotoxin producing agents). It has been observed that the patients in deficient of IgA subject tofrequent pulmonary infections. Patients of Ataxia telangiectasia are also reported deficient in IgA IgAdoes not pass through placental barrier and is not usually detectable at birth and human infant is capableto synthesize it at 2 to 3 weeks of age. 13
  50. 50. Immunoglobulin G: IgG class of immunoglobulin contains most of the antibacterial and antiviralprotective antibodies which determine immunity against infection. It provides general immunity, but it isa secondary or recall immune response. Its ability to diffuse into body tissues facilitate combination andefficient elimination of antigenserum IgG crosses the placenta and at birth baby possesses high amountof IgG. But infant produces it at about seven weeks of age. Immunoglobulin M: IgM is having ten combining sites to destroy ten antigens at a time as wellas it activates compliment fixation system. IgM is the major part of the early/primary response, especiallyin response to non-protein bacterial antigens. It readily fixes compliment, allowing for the efficient lysisof antigen.As mentioned earlier Ashvagandha significantly increases IgA, IgM and IgG. Mandukaparnisignificantly increases IgG and IgM. Varahikanda, Milk and Shatavari significantly increase Serum IgAonA Igiut. Amalaki and Guduchi significantly increase the serum IgA. The implication of these findingson each of the immunoglobulin is being discussed here under separate heading.Effect of Rasayana Drugs on fmmunoglobulin A Ashvagandha, Shatavari, Guduchi, Amalaki and Milk caused significant increase in the serum IgAlevels of the patients. As mentioned earlier IgA is secreted in colostrums, saliva, tears, respiratory tractand intestinal mucosa. It forms a protective coating over mucous membrane and thus behaves as anantiseptic coat. Hence these drugs may be very useful in prevention of diseases of Respiratory and GITract. They may also be used as Naimittika Rasayana for the disorders of these systems.Effect of Rasayana Drugs on Immunoglobulin M Ashvagandha, Shatavari, Mandukaparni, Varahikanda, milk and Kapikacchu caused significantincrease in serum IgM levels of the patients of this series. IgM is having ten combining sites to destroyten antigens at a time as well as it activates compliment fixation system. Therefore these drugs may bevery useful as general immunity promotion drugs against the infections. If is further noticed that most ofRasayana drugs caused increase in this immunoglobulin, which indicates the beneficial effect of thesedrugs in improving the general immunity.Effect of Rasayana Drugs on Immunoglobulin G Ashvagandha and Mandukaparni increased the serum IgG. As this immunoglobulin crosses theplacenta, therefore these drugs may provide passive immunity to the child during the infancy period ifadministered to the mother during pregnancy. However, before such use, it is desirable to evaluate thesafety profile of these drugs on the fetus. On the other hand the drugs like Atibala, Guduchi andKapikacchu caused slight and insignificant decrease in the serum IgG level, so such drugs may be avoidedduring pregnancy. But these drugs may be useful in treating the auto-immune diseases due to the immuno-suppressive action of these drugs.Conclusion On the basis of the results of this study it can be concluded that most of the Rasayana andVajikarana particularly. studied in this series has general immunity promotion effects. On the basis theresults of these studies it is recommended that further studies may be undertaken to evaluate their utilityin improving the general immunity against infectious diseases as well as against immunity deficiencydisorders including AIDS. 14 "S g ffi
  51. 51. AYURVEDA VERSES TODAYS LIFE THREATENING DISEASES o Dr. Krishna U. K. B.S.A.M., M.D.(Ay), Ph.D.(Japan) , Director, Nippon Ayurveda School. JapanIntroduction : Ayurveda, the age old science of human living, aims at promoting health and managing ailments.A normal life span with a natural death is considered to be the result of incorporating Ayurveda in dailyIife. The interest in adopting the principles of Ayurveda is growing world wide. Modern world with all its astonishing progress in science and technology is facing serious problemsin the field of medicine. Escalating health care costs and deteriorating quality of life is seen hand in handwith economical and industrial growth. Heart diseases, Cancer, Cerebrovascular accidents are the mainkillers, which make.nearly 70Vo of the causes of death in adult population in a modern society like Japan.These ailments, once set in, have no satisfactory treatments, hence is the stress laid on preventing them.Of course, there are several high-tech treatments offered to manage these diseases, all of which arefinancially expensive and reduce the Quality of Life (Q.O.L.) of the sufferers to a miserable level.What is a life threatening disease Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services hasdefined the term life-threatening disease as (1) diseases or conditions where the likelihood of death is highunless the course of the disease is intemrpted and (2) diseases or conditions with potentially fatal out-comes. The seriousness of a disease is a matter of judgment, but generally is based on such factors assurvival, day-to-day functioning, and the likelihood that the disease, if left untreated, will progress froma less severe condition to a more serious one. For example, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome(AIDS), all other stages of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, Alzheimers disease, anginapectoris, heart failure, cancer, and many other diseases are clearly serious in their full manifestations.Furthermore, many chronic illnesses that are generally well managed by available therapy can haveserious outcomes. For example, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mel-litus, systemic lupus erythematosus, depression, psychoses, and many other diseases can be serious insome or all of their phases or for certain populations. In short, life threatening diseases are chronic, usually incurable diseases, which have the effect ofconsiderably limiting a persons life expectancy. These include, but are not limited to cancer, diabetes,neurological conditions, coronary heart diseases and HIV/Aids.What Ayurveda says about life-threatening diseases In the above definition it is clear that life-threatening disease is either a disease where death isalmost sure, like cancer or a disease which will lead to death if not managed properly. like diabetes.According to Ayurveda the former is an incurable disease and the latter is a disease which gets convertedinto an incurable one due to improper or inefficient management. 15
  52. 52. Ayurveda too, may not be able to cure these diseases and it is wrong to conceive that whatever isincurable in modern medicine is cured in Complimentary Alternative Medicines (CAM). Diseases are classified mainly as curable and incurable according to the tenets of Ayurveda. Adisease, where VATA, PITTA, KAPHA. all the three life energies are involved; if the ailment has spreadto all the three paths of disease; besides disease being chronic and the patient being weak, is consideredto be incurable. Thus, todays life threatening diseases many a times are incurable as per the views ofAyurveda also.Ayurveda versus life threatening diseases As it is evident, todays life threatening diseases can only be prevented but can not be successfullymanaged once they set in. The teachings of Ayurveda, if followed religiously, help anyone to improverhe status of health. That means the immunity is enhanced and a life of good quality is enjoyed. The important life style guidelines based on the principles of Ayurveda are: 1. Regular in going to bed and rising in the morning. 2. Not suppressing the natural urges 3. Physical exercise performed with a pleasant disposition 4. Intake of food in moderate quantity 5. Food that is fresh and seasonal, devoid of harmful chemicals 6. Habitual consumption of rejuvenating herbs 7. Inclusion of wholesome food items in the daily menu 8. Positive emotions, breathing exercises and relaxation Not only are these helpful to prevent the serious diseases, but also dependable to manage theincurable diseases. Though few there are instances in which patients have cured incurable diseases bythemselves, with the help of radical changes in their life style and thinking I 16 ffi n@fr6 ffi
  53. 53. KERALEEYA CHIKITSA KRAMAM Dr. M. R. VASUDEVAN NAMPOOTHIRI, Principal, Govt. Ayuneda College Thiruvananthapuram, Dean, Faculty of Ayurveda, Kerala Univenitl. The traditional physicians of Kerala developed some treatment procedures without deviating from the basic principles of Ayurveda. These are mainly sweda karmas and Sneha karmas applied in different ways and forms. Probably these were developed considering the factors like climate, nature of landscape, body constitution and strength of people, regional availability of medicines etc In general Chikitsa is classified as Santharpana and Apatharpana. This is a broad classification. In Santharpana, we can incorporate Brumhana (Nourishing), Snehana (Oleating) and stambhana. Langhana (Lightening), Rookshana (Drying) and Swedana (Sudation) can be enumerated under the head- ing Apartarpana. Each one of the treatments termed under Shadupakrama has predominance of Gunas in the following order. Unakrama Guna Brumhana Guru Snehana Snigdha Stambhana ,.Seetha Langhana Laghu Rookshana Rookshar Swedana - Ushna Subsequently, analyzing the general mahabhoota predominance in the two basic treatments, it is vividly observed that Santarpana is prithwi and Jala predominant where as Apatharpana is Agni, Vayu and Akasha Bhoota predominant. On the other hand, it is worthwhile to make a gradation in the case of Apatharpana based on the strength of doshas. (ie) Langhana in Alpadosha Langhana pachana in Madhya dosha Doshavasechana in Prabhoota dosha The two basic levels of Langhana are Samana and Sodhana. Sodhana implies Panchakarma *hich includes Vamana, Virechana, Asthapana, Anuvasana and Nasya. Among these, even though Anuvasana appears as a brumhana therapy, it removes pakwashaya gatha pureesha and vata. Hence it is included among Panchakarma. While dealing with Karma, one point should be kept in mind. (i.e) the poorvakarma and Paschat Karma differs based on the major karma or Pradhana Karma intended. For example when Panchakarma is taken as pradhana karma, Snehana and Swedana are the poorva karmas and Peyadikrama is the paschat karma. Similarly while considering Keraleeya Chikitsa which are mainly modified forms of sneha and 17 *B 17l 6d w w-
