Stability of the drug is the time period from the drug production until the time it is intended to be consumed. So, present study was carried out to know the stability of <em>Pashanbhedadi Churna</em> and to check microbial contamination in the <em>Pashanbhedadi Churna</em> at different time interval. <em>Pashanbhedadi</em> <em>Churna</em> was stored in plastic bag. Microbial study of the drug was done at different climatic conditions, humidity and temperature set ups with regular intervals for a period of 11months to analyse mycological and bacteriological findings by wet mount preparation and Gram stain test respectively. Though in different climate, temperature and humidity conditions, at the end of microbial study, <em>Churna</em> has shown absence of microbes for approx.11 months of preparation of drug. So, it is showed that drug is stable in minimum 32°C temperature to maximum 38°C and minimum humidity 23% to maximum 74% humidity. That means stability duration of drug after preparation is approx. 11 months which showed that drug was in a standard condition. Hence it is concluded that stability test of <em>Pashanbhedadi Churna </em>with respect to microbiological findings was negative at room temperature, warm and cold, dry and humid conditions.</p> Hetal Koriya Meera Cholera T.S.Dudhamal Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 1 7 10.47070/ijapr.v11iSuppl1.2653 Evaluation of Antipyretic Activity of Siddha Herbomineral Formulation - Surangusa Parpam <p>The aim of the present study was to assess the antipyretic activity of Siddha herbo-mineral formulation <em>Surangusa Parpam</em> at the dose level of 15mg/kg and 35mg/kg body weight, orally, in brewer yeast induced fever model Wistar rats. Fever was induced by subcutaneous injection of 10ml/kg of 20% w/v aqueous suspension of brewer’s yeast into the nape of the rat's neck. After eighteen hours feverish animals were treated with <em>Surangusa Parpam</em> 15mg/kg and 35mg/kg body weight, orally, and rectal temperatures were evaluated at 0, 1, 2 and 3 hours post-treatment by inserting a well-lubricated bulb of the clinical thermometer. <em>Surangusa Parpam</em> showed a significant decrease in the elevated body temperature of rats that remained sustained throughout the tested time points from 1 to 3 hours in the used model. 35mg/kg body weight dose level showed significant inhibition of elevated body temperature when compared with the standard control. These results indicate that the Antipyretic activity of <em>Surangusa Parpam</em> and in addition to its well-established anti-inflammatory activity possesses significant antihistamine activity that may be beneficial in symptomatic relief when it is used in the therapy of allergic and inflammatory disorders.</p> Manikandan G Srinivasan M R Kayalvizhi P Sangeetha M K Rajakumar K Karpagavalli K Nithyamala I Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 8 13 10.47070/ijapr.v11iSuppl1.2672 A Case Study on Ayurvedic Management in Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovarian Disease <p>Polycystic ovarian disease is highly prevalent hormonal and metabolic disorder among reproductive aged women worldwide characterised by hyperandrogenism, chronic anovulation and polycystic ovaries. Insulin resistance is now recognised as a basic underlying pathology of PCOD and found in approximately 50-70% of patients. It is defined as a state in which greater than normal amounts of insulin are required to produce a quantitatively normal response. It is associated with an increased risk of various metabolic disorders including type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and cardiovascular diseases, which indicates that timely therapeutic intervention in PCOS could prevent or at-least delay the onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus and other long-term health risks. Most of the features of PCOD associated with insulin resistance can be found under <em>Santharpanajanya vyadhis</em> with involvement of three <em>Doshas </em>and <em>Dhathus</em> like <em>Rasa, Raktha </em>and<em> Medus</em>. Here is a case report of 18-year-old female who presented with irregular menstruation, rapid weight gain and blackish discoloration of back of neck. Her USG findings shows bilateral polycystic pattern of ovaries. Based on clinical features and laboratory values, treatment principles adopted are <em>Agni deepana, Ama</em> <em>pachana, Vatha-kaphahara</em> and <em>Lekhana</em>. <em>Varanadi kashyam</em> and <em>triphala choorna</em> with <em>takra</em> given internally for 3 months and <em>Udwartana</em> was done externally for 14 days. After 3 months of treatment considerable reduction in weight and improvement in insulin resistance were noticed and her menstrual periods were normal with normal USG findings. The present case signifies the importance of Ayurvedic management in insulin resistance of PCOD to prevent forthcoming complications.</p> Anju G S Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 14 17 10.47070/ijapr.v11iSuppl1.2643 Effect of Sodhananga Achasnehapana Followed by Virechana in the Management of Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Case Report <p>Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, progressive autoimmune arthropathy and characterized by bilateral symmetrical involvement of joints with some systemic clinical features. Treatment in allopathic medicine involves NSAIDS and steroids, which carry their own collateral burden of side effects in long term use. According to clinical features, described in Ayurveda, <em>Vatarakta</em> closely resembles with Rheumatoid arthritis. The study is done to find the effect of <em>Sodhananga Achasnehapana</em> with <em>Guggutiktaka ghritha</em> followed by <em>Virechana</em> with <em>Nimbamrita eranda taila</em> in Rheumatoid Arthritis. <strong>Methods</strong>: It is a simple random single case study done at Government Ayurveda College Panchakarma Hospital, Poojappura, Thiruvananthapuram. Here a case of <em>Vatarakta (Vatakapahadikam)</em> was treated with <em>Sodhananga Achasnehapana</em> with <em>Guggutiktaka ghritha</em> followed by <em>Virechana</em> with <em>Nimbamrita eranda taila</em> after <em>Rukshana karma. </em><strong>Results: </strong>The treatment was effective in reducing the ESR, RA factor and CRP levels of the patient diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. <strong>Conclusion</strong>: The case report shows that Ayurvedic treatment is potent and effective in the management of Rheumatoid arthritis. There was no adverse effect found in the treatment. Hence it can be concluded that RA can be effectively and safely treated by using the <em>Chikitsa siddhanta</em> mentioned in Ayurveda</p> Vishnu Sreenivas T. K.

The condition Atrophic vaginitis is defined as atrophy of the vaginal epithelium due to decreased estrogen levels. This common menopausal condition which is often underreported and under diagnosed is caused by estrogen related changes to the vaginal epithelium and can adversely affect quality of life. Atrophic vaginitis is a common condition in postmenopausal women experience due to estrogen deficiency that causes involution of the vaginal tissue, leading to vaginal dryness, burning sensation in vagina and dyspareunia, the atrophy of the vulvovaginal structures occurs due to estrogen deficiency. Among them <em>Sushka yoniroga</em> can be most suitably correlated with Atrophic vaginitis. The management principle of Atrophic vaginitis includes <em>Vathika yoniroga chikitsa</em>, along with <em>Sthanika chikitsa</em>. Treatment mainly aims at <em>Vatapittasamana</em>, <em>Brimhana</em>, <em>Balya</em> and natural supplementation of estrogen containing drugs. <em>Sthanika chikitsa</em> like <em>Yonipooranam</em>, <em>Pichu</em> <em>dharanam</em>, etc can be done in Atrophic vaginitis. <em>Sthanika chikitsa</em> which is of prime importance in the management of <em>Streeroga</em> facilitates absorption of drugs through the vagina as the walls and adjacent tissues are highly vascular, where the medicines are administered intra vaginally. In the present case, <em>Yonipoorana</em> as <em>Sthanika chikitsa</em> as tried. A 54 year old lady was presented with complaints of burning sensation in vagina and pain during sexual intercourse. The vaginal examination was painful and the walls are found inflamed, she was diagnosed with Atrophic vaginitis. She was sent to cytological screening. The reports revealed high grade parabasal cells and low grade superficial cells. The maturation index was found 60/25/5 vaginal pH was 5.3. Pap smear was done which was negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy. <em>Dasapaka Bala tailam</em> was administered intravaginally for 7 days in 3 consecutive months. During follow up she was relieved from the symptoms like burning sensation in vagina and pain during sexual intercourse. From this case report, it shows that <em>Yonipoorana</em> with <em>Dasapaka Bala tailam</em> is effective for the management of Atrophic vaginitis.</p> Renjumol M.R Giby Thomas Jyothi P.K Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 25 28 10.47070/ijapr.v11iSuppl1.2634 The Role of Rasaja Bhava (Nourishing Factors) in Development of Garbha (Embryo/Foetus) <p>Archaic scholars of Ayurveda lay great emphasize on intake of <em>Ahara </em>(food) as best source for nourishment and has a prime role in growth and development of foetus during pregnancy. In order to achieve a healthy progeny, Ayurveda classics have elucidated wholesome regimen to be followed by the parents before and after conception. There are specific procreating factors which help for the growth of embryo known as <em>Matrujadi shad bhava </em>(maternal and other 5 factors).<em> Shadbhava</em> (six factors) consist of <em>Matruja, pitruja, Atmaja, Rasaja, Satmyaja</em> and <em>Satwaja</em> in which <em>Rasaja bhava</em> plays an important role in providing nutrition to the foetus. The concept of <em>Upasneha, Upasweda, Ambu, Apara</em> and <em>Nabhinadi</em> are involved in nourishment of embryo/foetus at different stages of development. <em>Acharya</em> have drawn attention to certain food habits, to be avoided by the pregnant woman to refrain from abnormalities in the offspring. The concept of nutrition in <em>Garbhini </em>(Gravid Women) explained in classics has similarity with contemporary science.</p> Uma B Gopal Anagha R.

One of the tools of cognition and perception used to establish the precise qualities of an object according to Ayurveda is <em>Buddhi</em> (intellect). Perception occurs when the <em>Indriyas</em> (cognitive organs) perceives their objects along with<em> Manas</em> (mind), which subsequently analyze and forwards those to <em>Buddhi</em> producing knowledge. <em>Dhee, Dhriti, Smriti</em> are the components of <em>Buddhi</em> which aids for this and <em>Medha </em>is a type of intellect having the power to retain this knowledge. As per modern, cognition is the mental action or process that involves thought experiences, and the senses to acquire knowledge and understanding. The cognitive development is established through schema, assimilation, accommodation and equilibrium according to Jean Piaget’s Cognitive Development Theory. <em>Buddhi, Dhee, Dhriti, Smriti, Smritikaarana, Medha </em>can be correlated to these factors. Although the components of cognitive development theory were articulated for a developing kid, Ayurveda views these concepts as that which may be implied at any stage of life. One has to pass through each of these stages to achieve cognition. Hence, the present conceptual study thus focus on interpreting these Ayurvedic observations on the basis of modern theory of cognitive development and its factors.</p> Ashigha S Prathviraj Puranik Kavya Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research 2023-03-03 2023-03-03 66 69 10.47070/ijapr.v11iSuppl1.2681 Parallel Study of Medodhara Kala and Abdominal Adipose Tissue with Special Reference to Sthoulya (Obesity) <p>Obesity which is neuroendocrine disorder seems to be common predisposing factor for almost all non-communicable diseases. This neuroendocrine disturbance causes multiple systemic disorders and finally <em>Ayurhasa</em> (reduction in longevity of life) by various means. Ayurveda mentioned eight pathophysiological conditions considered as <em>Nindya</em> (worse conditions). <em>Atisthool</em> (excessive weight) is one of these conditions due to improper <em>Aahara</em> (dietary habits), <em>Vihar</em> (sedentary life style) and changed sleep pattern. <em>Apachita meda</em> (improperly metabolized fat) deposited in <em>Udara</em> (abdomen). <em>Medodharakala</em> according to Ayurveda and abdominal linings bear several similar characteristics related to fat and <em>Medodhatu</em> deposition. Deterioration of functioning of <em>Medodhara</em> <em>kala</em> leads to deposition of <em>Apachita meda </em>leading to <em>Sthoulya</em>. In obesity, abdominal wall, space between organs stores much amount of adipose tissue (site of <em>Meda</em> deposition). So this article reveals with parallel study of <em>Medodhara</em> <em>kala</em> and abdominal adipose tissue to find out similarity.</p> Pradnya R.Deshpande Prasad P. Pande Shital S.
