ABSTRACT

Tamaka Shwasa is a well known disease which has been affecting man kind since vedic times. On the basis of its etiopathogenesis and symptoms, disease Tamaka Shwasa can be considered analogous to Bronchial Asthma. Asthma remains one of the commonest breathing problem across the world, and is spreading at a fast rate in developing countries like India. In India prevalence of Asthma has been found to be around 15 % in the majority of surveys. This might be due to the westernization which has brought a drastic change in the lifestyle of human beings. Increasing population, industrialization and deforestation are the contributing factors towards this chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Asthma has become a challenging problem for the medical world now. In Modern medicine current management of asthma is by providing short term relief to the patient and not the long term relief. Also prolonged used of these drugs is not safe, as it has many adverse effects on human body. As the chronicity of the disease increases, drug dose dependency also increases which ultimately puts the patient into the vicious circle of ‘dependency on drugs’ that ultimately leads to the respiratory failure and loss of precious life. It is the need of the hour to have some safe & effective regime for the management of this troublesome disease Tamaka Shwasa. In Ayurveda detoxification of the body is done effectively and safely, without inducing any drug dependency by making use of various shodhan procedures and shamana medications. Lots of research work has been done at very institutes of ayurveda by making use of various ayurvedic principles. Various Shodhana procedures, classical and self formulations has definitely been proven the efficacy of ayurvedic procedures and medications in the management of disease Tamaka Shwasa. Here also, classical formulation named Shringyadi Churna and Guduchyadi Kwatha mentioned in Chakradatta.ch.12 has successfully been used for the management of the disease Tamaka Shwasa, which not only has provided the decrease in episodic recurrence but also gave the long term relief to the patient without inducing any drug dependency. Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of Shringyadi Churna and Guduchyadi Kwatha in the management of Tamaka Shwasa. Materials and Methods: 60 Patients suffering from Tamaka Shwasa and attending the O.P.D. and I.P.D. of P.G. department of Kayachikitsa, Rishikul Campus Haridwar were selected randomly.
