Introduction INTRODUCTION Ayurveda an ancient system of Health care is a result of India’s quest for disease free living. The amazing journey of Āyurveda from its divine origin to the present day gives us the hint about the enormous potential this science possessing. Its successful existence since time immemorial itself proves its scientific approach of treatment that has remained unchanged till date. One of such unique line of treatment is Shodhana Karma. Shodhana is a procedure, where if Roga janaka doshas are in prabhuta avastha they are expelled through the nearest route. Virechana karma is one of the shodhana modality which is performed to eliminate vitiated pitta dosha from the body. Though virechana is agrya shodhana for vitiated pitta dosha , we find references that it also eliminates vitiated kapha and vata doha.3 Virechana is a line of treatment in many chronic and stubborn disorders and one of such disorder is Kushta. In Ayurveda many of the skin disorders are brought under one umbrella called Kushta. Acharyas had faith in virechana to put control over disease causing morbid factors. Eka kushtha , one of the Ksudhra kushtha can be treated with Virechana karma. The signs and symptoms of Eka kushtha mentioned in ayurvedic classics resembles to that of Psoriasis. Psoriasis is a very common disease and affects one to two per cent of the population in all geographic regions Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory and proliferative disorder of the skin clinically manifested as well-circumscribed, erythematous papules and plaques To evaluate the efficacy of Virechana with Karavellaka Patra Swarasa & Abhayadi Modaka in EkaKushtha Department of P.G Studies in Pancha Karma , G.A..M.C..Bangalore 1
Introduction covered with silvery scales typically located over the extensor surfaces and scalp. While specific systemic and environmental factors are known to influence the disease, it is unpredictable in its course and usually pursue spontaneously with improvement and exacerbations of lesions without discernable cause. Immune system dysfunction in the background of a genetic predisposition is believed to be at the core of the disease process. In classics we find reference about administration of virechana using different parts of the drug, among which Karavellaka patra swarasa for the virechana is the best type of aushadha kalpana. In Chakradutta and Sharangadhara samhita we get reference about Abhayadi modaka as a virechaka yoga in Kushtha. So with the motto of evaluating the efficacy of both the virechana yogas in Eka Kushtha work has been carried out under the heading, “TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY OF VIRECHANA WITH KARAVELLAKA PATRASWARASA AND ABHAYADI MODAKA IN EKA KUSHTHA W.S R.

Procedure Review Of Literature PROCEDURE REVIEW HISTORICAL REVIEW Historical review of virechana karma: Vedas are the oldest source of information regarding the disease and its treatment A close review of the history of various systems of medicinal science reveals the fact that the treatments was prevalent from time immemorial, but only very few references are available about Virechana in Vedic times. PURANA KALA Agnipurana1: . Agni purana has stated virechana as best treatment for the diseases caused due to Pitta.Trivrth as best virechaka dravya. It is indicated in urdhwaga rakta pitta, jwara, hridroga.But detail description of Virechana was not found. In Manu smrithi, it is told that snana is done after the completion of vamana and virechana2. Vinayapitaka(Buddha literature):3 In the text Vinaya pittaka, Buddha period, virechana was given to Bhagwan Buddha by inhaling some powder spread over uthplapatra.

Procedure Review Of Literature VIRECHANAThe process by which the vitiated doshas are eliminated through the adhobhaga ieguda marga, is called ‘Virechana.This is widely used shodana therapy, is less stressfulwith least complication.Virechana in broader term denotes both vamana andvirechana.6 Etymology:-(1) Virechana7 :V+Rich+ Nich , lytu-malade: nissernam ......(Vachaspathyam).(2)Virechanaha8 :V+Rich+Nich, lytu-Visheshena rechathete ...... (Shabdakalpadruma)The Vircehana word is derived from the ‘Rich’ dhatu ,‘Nich’ &’Lyut’ pratyaya &with ‘Vi’ upasarga. It also means Maladehe nissaranam i.e. expelling out the malas. "Ricir" - evacuation. "Ric" - Viyojana (separation).Virechana word is derived from the ‘Rich’ dhatu, ‘Rich’ meaning – To empty ,evacuate, leave, give up.9The root ‘Rich’ is also very important to understand the systemic action of Virechana.According to Charaka, the Virechana drugs first get digested in Amashaya, thenreaches to Hridaya, Dhamani, macro and micro channels (srotases) of the body andreach the site where Doshas are accumulated.10Virechana drugs soften the compactness (Sanghata) of the Doshas and break thebigger molecules to smaller ones. This process occurs in a proper way by separation(Viyojana) and combination (Samparchana) of doshas.

A) Mridu Virechana:43 The drugs which are Mridu in Veerya or when combined with opposite Veerya or given in low dosage, given to the Ruksha patient and causes less purgation is known as Mridu Virechana. Those drugs are specifically indicated in weak patients having mild natured diseases. These drugs may also be given to the patients who have been Shodhita previously or having Alpa Dosha or whose Koshta is unknown. Charaka is of the view that the physician should not hesitate to use Mridu Virechana drugs in weak patients having more Doshas because even repeated elimination of Doshas in small quantity may cure the disease44 The patient who have not taken Virechana drugs in past and whose Koshta is unknown in such persons Sushruta recommends the use of Mridu Virechana drugs in the beginning and after knowing the Koshta required drug may be prescribed 45 Sharangdhara recommends the use of Mridu Virechana drugs in Mridu Koshta (eg.

The drugs are specifically indicated in the patients having Madhya Roga (disease with moderate symptoms). The administration of these drugs in Balavan rogi is useless because, they are unable to eliminate Dosha completely48.Sharangdhara recommends the use of Madhyama Virechana in Madhyama Koshta. eg. Trivrit, Katuki and Aragvadha49.C) Teekshna Virechana : The drugs, which cause severe motions (Mahavega) and eliminates the Doshas in large quantity by quick (Kshipra) and gentle (Sukha) purgation without causing either much depression (Glani), is known as Teekshna Virechana. According to Charaka, the drug which has been kept away from water, heat and organisms, cultivated in proper Desha and Kala and which has been given Bhavana with the drugs of same Veerya acquires the Teekshna properties. This type of drugs having all the required properties, when given in prescribed dosage to the patient who has been well Snehita and Swedita, then it causes Teekshna Virechana50.Sharangdhara recommends use of Teekshna Virechana drugs in Krura Koshta persons. Charaka recommends the use of these drugs in the strong (Balavan) patients all the symptoms of the diseases i.e. Teekshna Vyadhi51.It has been further mentioned that the use of these drugs should be avoided in Durbala (weak), Shodhita, and patient having Alpa Dosha and whose Koshta is unknown, otherwise it may cause untoward effects of these patients.
