Acharya Susrutha has described 31 nasagatha rogas. Among them
pratishyaya is one of the most important disease.
• He has described the disease very elaborately including its
complications as diseases of eyes, nose and ear.
• On the basis of signs and symptoms, the disease pratishyaya can be
compared to allergic rhinitis in modern medicine characterized by
sudden and frequent attacks of sneezing, profuse watery nasal
discharge associated with nasal obstruction which is intermittent
watering of eyes, heaviness of head, respiratory distress and anosmia.
• Allergic reaction is produced when the body comes in contact with
allergens.

Mode of action of Vachadi syrup
• The drug for the clinical study was referred from Harita Samhita, 3rd
sthana, 2nd chapter where Acharya Harita has explained the
treatment for Pratishyaya (rhinitis) in children. The drug contains
ingredients Vacha, Yavani, Amalaki, Vibhitaki, Haritaki and
Shunthi. Here, Vacha, Yavani, Haritaki and Shunthi by their
properties of Ushna Veerya (hot potency), Laghu (lightness),
Teekshnaguna (sharp in property) does Amapachana (digestive),
Vatanulomana (proper movement of Vata) and are VataKapha hara.
Whereas Amalaki and Vibhitaki by their Madhura vipaka(post
digestion) acts as Tridoshahara. Altogether, this drug acts on
Tridosha, corrects Agnimandya (digestive fire), relieves Srotodushti
(clears obstruction in the channels) and does Vatanulomana.
19
Discussion
Pratishayaya had got simulation with Allergic rhinits which is the
burning problem in the present generation and as there was no successful
management for these conditionsin allied science. Hence present
clinically study was designed.Vachadi Syrup shows highly significant
result in Nasasrava (nasal discharge)(86%), Gandha-ajnana (loss of sense
of smell) (85%), Mukhashosha (dryness of mouth) (82%),Kshavathu
(sneezing) (78.5%), Ghranavarodha (nasal obstruction) (95%),
Shirovedana (headache) (92.5%), Trishana (thirst)(81%), Kasa (cough)
(80%), Aruchi (loss of appetite)(83%), Nasal congestion(87%), Nasal
itching(80%) relief respectively. Significant result was obtained in
Swarasada (altered voice) with 60%, Shirogaurava (heaviness of head)
with 66% and not significant in Nasagra-paka (nasal mucosa
inflammation) with 40% relief respectively.
20
Ingredient Of Vyoshadi Vati
• 1. Sunthi (zinzberofficinale),
• 2. Marich (pipernigrum),
• 3. Pippali (piperlongum),
• 4. Amlavetas (Garcina Peunculata),
• 5. Chavya (Chavivaroburghii)
• 6. Talispatra (Abies webbiana),
• 7. chitrak (Plumbago Zeylancia)
• 8. Jiraka (Cuminum Cyminum)
• 9. Guda (Jaggery) (Black).
21
Method of preparation of drug
• All the mentioned drugs were taken in equal quantity in powder
form except Guda (Jaggery).
• Guda (Jaggery) was taken 4 times of all mixture powder.
• Guda (Jaggery) & all powder were mixed properly & tablets
were prepared.
22
PROBABLE MODE OF ACTION
• In the pathogenesis of pratishyaya, predisposing factor was Kapha
vitiated diet & vihar. Prime factor was Rasadhatwagni mandyta. Most of
drug having Tikta Rasa, Katu Vipaka & Ushana Virya. They also have
function like Kaphasaman & lekhan (depletive). Amapachana & Dhatu-
Shoshan properties of Vyoshadi Vati normalize the function of Agni. The
drugs possess the Tikta Rasa which helps in the clearing the obstruction
in the Strotas (channels). Kapha & rasadhatu both are Prithvi & Jala
Mahabhuta entities. So in the management of pratishyaya, the drug must
be opposite of these two Mahabhut. This achieved by Tikta Rasa as it
has Khara property. Amlarasa & Guda (Jaggery) has potency to reach
at cellular level & restore function of dhatwagni. The extract of ginger
due to its katu rasa and teekshna guna it acts as vata kapha hara, deepana
and bhedana.

taila, a good ayurvedic medicine for controlling Dushta
Pratishyaya.
33
Mode of action of Nasya
• In Purva Karma of Nasya, Abhyanga and Swedana is done. Abhyanga causes Mruduta
of Doshas and Swedana causes Vilayana (liquification) of accumulated Doshas. In the
language of modern science, Abhyanga and Swedana increases the local blood supply
and Swedana also liquefies the mucous. Due to vasodilatation the permeability of
blood vessels increases, which makes the drug absorption faster.
• In Pradhana Karma, the drug in Churna form is administered into the nostrils through
Pradhamana Nadiyantra in the head-low position of the patient. Thus, the drugs reach
the Shringataka and from there, through different Siras, it spreads to other parts like
Netra, Shirah, etc. and removes the morbid Doshas. By the properties of drug, it
causes Srotoshuddhi and makes the Anulomana Gati of Vayu (mitigation of Vayu),
which is hampered in Dushta Pratishyaya.
• In Pashchata Karma, Urdhvanga massage and Swedana helps to drain out the Doshas
and Swedana also causes Srotomukhavishodhana.
• In addition, the drug compound has Srotoshodhana, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial,
etc., properties, which help to treat the disease.

  • 19. Mode of action of Vachadi syrup • The drug for the clinical study was referred from Harita Samhita, 3rd sthana, 2nd chapter where Acharya Harita has explained the treatment for Pratishyaya (rhinitis) in children. The drug contains ingredients Vacha, Yavani, Amalaki, Vibhitaki, Haritaki and Shunthi. Here, Vacha, Yavani, Haritaki and Shunthi by their properties of Ushna Veerya (hot potency), Laghu (lightness), Teekshnaguna (sharp in property) does Amapachana (digestive), Vatanulomana (proper movement of Vata) and are VataKapha hara. Whereas Amalaki and Vibhitaki by their Madhura vipaka(post digestion) acts as Tridoshahara. Altogether, this drug acts on Tridosha, corrects Agnimandya (digestive fire), relieves Srotodushti (clears obstruction in the channels) and does Vatanulomana. 19
  • 20. Discussion Pratishayaya had got simulation with Allergic rhinits which is the burning problem in the present generation and as there was no successful management for these conditionsin allied science.

  • 22. Method of preparation of drug • All the mentioned drugs were taken in equal quantity in powder form except Guda (Jaggery). • Guda (Jaggery) was taken 4 times of all mixture powder. • Guda (Jaggery) & all powder were mixed properly & tablets were prepared. 22
  • 23. PROBABLE MODE OF ACTION • In the pathogenesis of pratishyaya, predisposing factor was Kapha vitiated diet & vihar. Prime factor was Rasadhatwagni mandyta. Most of drug having Tikta Rasa, Katu Vipaka & Ushana Virya. They also have function like Kaphasaman & lekhan (depletive). Amapachana & Dhatu- Shoshan properties of Vyoshadi Vati normalize the function of Agni. The drugs possess the Tikta Rasa which helps in the clearing the obstruction in the Strotas (channels). Kapha & rasadhatu both are Prithvi & Jala Mahabhuta entities. So in the management of pratishyaya, the drug must be opposite of these two Mahabhut. This achieved by Tikta Rasa as it has Khara property. Amlarasa & Guda (Jaggery) has potency to reach at cellular level & restore function of dhatwagni.

In the language of modern science, Abhyanga and Swedana increases the local blood supply and Swedana also liquefies the mucous. Due to vasodilatation the permeability of blood vessels increases, which makes the drug absorption faster. • In Pradhana Karma, the drug in Churna form is administered into the nostrils through Pradhamana Nadiyantra in the head-low position of the patient. Thus, the drugs reach the Shringataka and from there, through different Siras, it spreads to other parts like Netra, Shirah, etc. and removes the morbid Doshas. By the properties of drug, it causes Srotoshuddhi and makes the Anulomana Gati of Vayu (mitigation of Vayu), which is hampered in Dushta Pratishyaya. • In Pashchata Karma, Urdhvanga massage and Swedana helps to drain out the Doshas and Swedana also causes Srotomukhavishodhana. • In addition, the drug compound has Srotoshodhana, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, etc., properties, which help to treat the disease. 34
