Burn wound healing is a complicated process that includes inflammation, re-epithelialization, granulation, neovascularization, and wound contraction. Initial treatment of burn wounds aims at preventing infection and early wound healing. Properties like antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial are also helps in wound healing. The level of severity of the burn is of the utmost importance. Third degree burns require immediate medical attention while studies suggest that a number of natural remedies may aid in the treatment of first- and second-degree burns. The basic concepts and principles of management of burn injury is described in Ayurveda are very much relevant and useful in this era of modern surgery. There are so many herbs mentioned in Ayurveda classics are found to have properties like <em>Dagdhahara, Vrana prasamana, Pittahara, Varnaprasadana, Twacya</em> etc which contributes to burn wound healing. More recently, scientists increasingly rely on modern scientific methods and evidence based medicine to prove efficacy of herbal medicine and focus on better understanding of mechanisms of their action. The purpose of this article is to review the evidence supporting the use of some of the Ayurvedic herbal drugs and formulations as effective and affordable treatments for burn wounds.</p> 2021-07-01T00:26:59+08:00 Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research https://ijapr.in/index.php/ijapr/article/view/1917 BRAHMI (BACOPA MONNIERI)– A POTENTIAL AYURVEDIC COGNITIVE ENHANCER AND NEUROPROTECTIVE HERB 2021-07-12T04:23:02+08:00 Shailja Choudhary shailjac810@gmail.com Isha Kumari isha.365@gmail.com Shifali Thakur thakurshifalithakur123@gmail.com Hemlata Kaurav kaurav.hem.88@gmail.com Gitika Chaudhary shuddhi.research@jeenasikho.co.in <p>In Ayurveda, a wide variety of neuroprotective herbal plants have been reported. <em>Brahmi</em>, <em>Bacopa monnieri, </em>belonging to the family<em> Scrophulariaceae, </em>is one of the foremost nootropic and neuroprotective Ayurvedic herb known from ancient times.

Coronavirus disease is a critical challenge in high population countries such as India. The rising expense of western medicine and its adverse reactions has become an important challenge against Covid-19. Nowadays the traditional medical system and its preparations are for various ailments becoming more popular. South Asia's one of the ancient medicine is the Siddha system of medicine. <em>Kaba Sura Kudineer</em> (KSK) has become a popular Siddha medicine on this pandemic. Previously, <em>Nilavembu Kudineer</em> (NVK) is being used more often during dengue fever, Chikungunya, and swine flu outbreaks, which reduced the mortality rate also. Some other medicines, too, are immensely beneficial. Due to a lack of modern antiviral medications, conventional medical systems in respective countries are now becoming known therapeutics, as a consequence of the pandemic. The second wave of Covid-19 is more virulent than the previous first wave. When compared to the previous, the rate of infection transmission and mortality was also higher. Over the next months, India will be targeted by the third and fourth waves of the Coronavirus infection, posing a greater threat to public health. As a result, some Siddha medicines which are administered and observed in Covid Care Centers reported satisfactory clinical outcomes and feedback reports. To justify the formulations, an attempt has been carried out to analyze the ingredients of medicines using textual evidence. This will enable researchers to evaluate the formulations to explore them in further research.</p> 2021-07-01T01:08:56+08:00 Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research https://ijapr.in/index.php/ijapr/article/view/1919 RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA AND ITS AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT 2021-07-12T04:22:53+08:00 Amrut.S.

Usually, it starts in mid periphery and advancing towards the macula and fovea centralis. Visual symptoms are nyctalopia (night blindness), tubular vision and reduced visual field. Symptoms of RP mostly starts on early teen age and sever visual loss occurs at ages of 40 to 50 years. RP has worldwide prevalence of 1:3000 to 1:7000 people. Males are more affected than female in ratio of 3:2.<em> Nakulandhya </em>and<em> Shleshmavidagdha Drishti</em> explained under <em>Drishtigata Roga </em>in Ayurvedic literature. These two are described as <em>Sannipataja Syadhi </em>and<em> Kaphaj Vyadhi</em> respectively. They have close resemblance with retinitis pigmentosa in their symptomatology. In current era treatment for RP includes Gene therapy, retinal implants, Neurotrophic factor, stem cells, retinal transplants. But these treatment options are not specific and satisfactory and expensive. All these treatments are still in their early stages of research and development.<em> Ayurvedic Panchakarma</em> therapies and <em>Kriyakalpa</em> therapies can help to regulate vitiated<em> Doshas </em>and provide nourishment and strength to ocular tissue.

The incidence of patients with cancer in India among males was 94.1 per 100,000 and among females 103.6 per 100,000 in the year 2020. 1 in 9 Indians develop cancer during their life time. Now days, the survival rate of cancer is much better due to vigorous interventions. Chemotherapy, is one of the main tool to kill the rapidly growing cancer cells. i.e., it shows its poisonous effect or simply they are poisons. The effect of chemo drugs on normal cells often causes many side effects. In fact the administration of chemo drugs results in the accumulation of poisons that shows symptoms like hair fall, mouth sores, fatigue, loss of appetite etc. Many complications develop after chemotherapy due to <em>Dhatuagnimandya</em> occurring as a result of the accumulation of <em>Garavisha </em>(artificial poison). Most of the complications noticed are similar to <em>Garavisha lakshanas</em> such as <em>Pandu, Alpagni, Durbalatha</em> etc. <em>Acharya </em>mentioned the <em>yoga </em>“<em>Moorvadichoornam</em>” with proper <em>Anupana, </em>which is specified for indigestion due to <em>Garavisha</em> consisting of drugs with many properties to compensate the side effect of chemotherapy.

To understand anatomy the primary knowledge of anatomical landmarks is essential. Reference points located by visual inspection, palpation, or computer assistance are useful in localizing structures on or within the human body are called Anatomical landmarks. These are frequently used by Anatomists and clinicians to guide both diagnosis and treatment. In Ayurveda, the concept of Anatomical landmark is already present but in scattered manner. The concept of <em>Nabhi</em> in Ayurveda is many folded concept which needs more exploration.

According to Ayurveda skin diseases are caused by imbalance of <em>Doshas </em>and therefore treatment depends on imparting harmony and balance for the individual. In Ayurveda skin diseases are included under the heading of <em>Kushta </em>and <em>Kshudrarogas</em>. <em>Vyanga </em>is one among the <em>Kshudra rogas</em>, even though <em>Vyanga </em>is a <em>Kshudraroga </em>it produces a great misery for the person due to dark discoloration of the skin, mostly over the face, occasionally on neck and rarely in forearms. <em>Vyanga </em>is a pathological situation of the facial skin which is produced due to the vitiation of <em>Vata, Pitta, Rakta </em>and <em>Manasika Nidanas </em>such as <em>Krodha </em>(anger), <em>Shoka </em>(sorrow), and <em>Ayasa </em>(mental exertion) are main culprits, these producing cardinal features such as <em>Niruja </em>(painless), <em>Tanu </em>(thin) and <em>Shyavavarna Mandalas </em>(bluish black colour patches). The <em>Lakshanas </em>of <em>Vyanga </em>are explained by different authors in the classical texts of Ayurveda under the heading of <em>Kshudra rogas</em>, <em>Sushruta samhita</em>, <em>Ashtanga samghraha</em>, <em>Madhava nidana</em>, <em>Ashtanga hrudaya</em>, <em>Bhava prakasha</em>, <em>Sharangadhara samhita</em>. In the context of <em>Vyanga </em>both <em>Shodhana </em>and <em>Shamana chikitsa </em>are explained in the form of <em>Raktamokshana, Lepa, Abhyanga,</em> and oral medications. <em>Vyanga </em>is correlated with melasma in the modern aspects, it is a chronic, acquired cutaneous characterised by hypopigmented patches on sun exposed areas of the face. <em>Ayurveda </em>cures the root cause of any problem. Any activity that increases the fire or heat in the body increase <em>Pitta </em>and can lead to skin diseases.</p> 2021-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research https://ijapr.in/index.php/ijapr/article/view/1907 NEUROLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING OF SHAD CHAKRA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO VATA DOSHA 2021-07-12T04:23:13+08:00 Jigisha.P.S jigishaps16@gmail.com Uma B.

The human body is composed of <em>Dhatus</em>. “<em>Asthi</em>” <em>Dhatu</em> is one of the main <em>Dhatu</em> in human body. “<em>Asthi</em>” is hard substance which remains even after most part of body has been decayed. Ayurvedic science has established history of trauma to <em>Asthi</em> (<em>Asthibhagna</em>). Ayurveda has aimed high for maintaining normal structure and function of deformed bones. It is high time to re-establish it by adopting proper research and methodology. The skeletal injuries are important incidences in human beings and they demand immediate management. The branch of science that deals with deformities of bones is known as Orthopedics, aimed for “maintenance of normal structure and function of deformed bones.” While bones are very strong they can break. Most often, breaks happen because the bone runs into a strong force, also repetitive force like from running can fracture a bone. High energy trauma result in bone fractures whether it is isolated fracture or dislocation. When a person goes through some form of trauma, as car accident or fall, the impact may break or fracture the bone. The bone fracture may be the result of high force impact or a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones such as Osteoporosis. Fracture is properly termed pathologic fracture but not trauma.</p> 2021-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research https://ijapr.in/index.php/ijapr/article/view/1941 AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE (CLD) –AN ANALYTICAL REVIEW 2021-07-12T04:22:16+08:00 Rita Kumari drritashaw1971@gmail.com <p>Liver controls our whole body activities.
