The term "Avabahuka" is not mentioned in the Vata Nanatmaja Vyadhi, but Acharya Sushruta and others have considered Avabahuka as a Vataja Vikara. Amsa Shosha, Shira Aakunch, and Baahupraspanditaharam symptoms are present in Avabahuka.. On the basis of signs and symptoms, Avabahuka can be co-related to frozen shoulder. Restrictions of glenohumeral movement are characteristic of this disease. Both passive and active shoulder movements are painfully restricted by frozen shoulder.</p> <p><strong>Material &amp; method:</strong> A female patient aged 38 years known case of Diabetes mellitus since 3 years reported with complaint of pain and difficulty in moving right upper limb. For the last 2 years, she was unable to move right upper limb due to pain and stiffness. Investigation: CBC, blood glucose, plain x-ray of the right shoulder joint etc. Treatments such as Abhyanga with Mahanarayana Tail, Patra Potli Pinda Sweda, Nasya with Anu Tail. Other treatment- Pendulum, shoulder wheel, and pulley exercises are examples of motion-stimulating exercises.</p> <p>&nbsp;<strong>Observation and Result:</strong> The patient had significant relief in pain and stiffness. After using Panchakarma procedure and some exercises, the full range of shoulder movement is present.</p> <p>&nbsp;<strong>Conclusion:</strong> By using Panchakarma procedures such as Patra Potli Pinda Sweda and Anu Tail Nasya, the patient does her daily routine work without any restrictions. The VAS (Visual Analogue Scale) pain score is used for the assessment of pain</p> Pratima Yadav Anil Kumar Pandey Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 11 16 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6202 A Case Study: Ayurvedic Management of Nasarsha w.s.r to Nasal Polyp <p>Nasa is the most important organ of Urdhwajatrugatabhaga and is the gateway for head as well as respiratory system. Nasarshas is one among the thirty-one Nasagata Rogas mentioned in our classics. Nasarshas can be correlated to nasal polyps. Nasal polyps are non-neoplastic masses of nasal or sinus mucosa. Prolonged use of antihistamines and antibiotics leads to drug resistance and decreases immunity, Fear of surgery, its complications and cost have restricted many patients from undergoing surgery and allopathic medicines. In this study a case of 31years male Patient presented with difficulty in nasal breathing, mouth breathing especially at night, sneezing, nasal discharge, headache since 9 months was taken for study. Present case study is taken to evaluate the efficacy of Ksharakarma in the management of Nasarshas w.s.r to Nasal Polyp along with internal medications for improve immunity and to reduce its recurrence. Kshara is an excellent medicine in the management of Arsha, as it has Lekhana, Tridoshaghna, Teekshna and Ushna properties. Shirovirechana being one of the Shodhana Karma, hence Nasya with Apamarga Kshara Taila followed by Yava kshara prathisarana was planned. Internally, Chitrakadi Vati, Triphala Guggulu and Haridra khanda, Hamsapadi Kashaya was prescribed. There was significant improvement in patient’s complaints and marked reduction in polypoidal mass.</p> Ramya M Rathi.S Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 17 21 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6203 Management of “Bilateral Foot Drop” through Ayurveda- A Case Study <p>Foot drop can be caused by paralysis of pretibial and peroneal muscles with resultant inabilityto dorsi flex the foot. The most common causes of foot drop are L5 radiculopathy and peronealnerve injury. Here a case of 74 year old man presented with weakness of both lower limbs andnumbness of both sole of foot since 10 years brought to OPD. He was provisionally diagnosedas a case of peroneal mono neuropathy, later diagnosed as a case of Bilateral Foot Drop. As per ayurvedic classics, we have correlated this condition as Pangu, a condition which is causeby vitiation of Vata. Hence the line of treatment we have adopted was Vatavyadhi Chikitsa, which comprises of Amapachana as well as Balya and Brumhana Chikitsa along with Samanoushadhi. The outcome was significant, that the patient was able to walk more confidently without the fear of falling.</p> Nasheeda P P. K. V. Anand Rahul Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 22 26 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6204 A Conceptual Study of Lifestyle Disorders w.s.r. to Raktagata Vata (Hypertension) <p>A person's lifestyle is essentially the result of their physical and psychological capabilities working together. This lifestyle is manifested in their habits, behaviour, diet and way of life and is based on the training they received as children from their parents, siblings, peer and other close family members. As a result, it requires purely psychological and natural control over the activities of the body and senses. This behaviour was described by Ayurveda as "Pragyaparadha" (intellectual blasphemy), one of the three fundamental causes of any ailment. As a result of Pragyaparadha, numerous inappropriate behaviours that are the underlying causes of different ailments, like Pragyaparadha is a tendency of repressing any natural need, which is identified as the root of roughly 50% of disorders. The fundamental cause of a disease is the reversal of any neurotransmission or inappropriate elimination of the waste products created during metabolism, which results in an accumulation of toxins. Therefore, one of the main causes of lifestyle disorders can be attributed to the habit of suppressing urges in an unhealthy lifestyle. To understand the physiology of blood pressure and the etio-pathogenesis of hypertension from the perspective of Ayurveda, a thorough examination of the existing Ayurvedic literature was conducted. According to one theory, hypertension should be viewed as the Prasara-Avastha, which refers to the spread of vitiated Doshasfrom their specific places, specifically of Vyana Vata, Prana Vata, Sadhaka Pitta, and Avalambaka Kapha along with Rakta in their disturbed phases.</p> Priyanka Verma Rahish Sewda Monika Prajapat Ashok Kumar Sharma Kishori Lal Sharma Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 27 30 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6205 Concept of Samanya Vishesha Siddhanta & its Utility in Ayurveda: Review <p>Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of medicine. In ayurveda there are many number of Siddhanta like, Panchmahabhuta Siddhanta, Triguna Siddhanta and Samanya Vishesha Siddhanta etc. which form a strong foundation for the survival of this life science. The Samanya Vishesha Siddhanta is one such basic principle of ayurveda, which helps to treat disease. Samanya Means Similarity and Vishesha means Dissimilarity. These are widely described and implemented in Charaka Samhita and are mentioned under Six Factors required for the action of Dhatusamya in the body. An effort has been made to comprehend Charaka Samhita in the Utility of Samanya Vishesha Siddhanta in this study.</p> Komalben Chavda Monika Prajapat Prof. Ashok Kumar Sharma Kishori Lal Sharma Rekh Raj Meena Ayushi Nigam Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 31 36 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6206 A Classical Review on the Traditional Nutritional Food of India – Sattu <p>&nbsp;<strong>Objective:</strong> Sattu is one of the famous traditional foods of India.

Unlike other medical sciences, instead of focusing on treatment of any particular disease, Ayurveda focuses more on the healthy living and wellbeing of the patient. For healthy living, Ayurveda emphasizes on consuming right kind of diet which is healthy and nutritious. In Ayurvedic classics, Ahara (food) is mentioned as one among the three Upasthambas (Sub-pillars of body). Ahara is considered to be vital for a human body as it provides the basic nutrients, which are very essential to carry out the basic activities of digestion and metabolism. Ayurveda clearly defines that certain diet and its combinations, which interrupts the metabolism of tissue, which inhibits the process of formation of tissue and which have the opposite property to the tissue are called as Viruddha Ahara or incompatible diet. The concept of Viruddha Ahar is a unique to Ayurveda system. The food that has improper combinations or is wrongly processed is called Viruddha Ahar. Also, a time, season and quantity have their impact. Certain foods not consumed at a right time of a day (kaala), season (ritu) and proper quantities (matra) can also be classified as Viruddha ahar. The food which is incompatible in respect to climate, quantity, method of preparation, combination etc. are described as potent cause of both physical and psychological illnesses.</p> Mamta Kumari Meena Ashok Kumar Sharma K.L.

Numerous factors might affect one's health and susceptibility to diseases. As the Acharyas had said, the Triupstambha (three sub pillars) of Ahara, Nidraand Brahmacarya support the body itself. In this case, Ahara is named first, showing how important it is to protect and sustain life. A healthy life requires adequate nutrition, yet one cannot benefit fully from the food they consume if they do not follow suitable dietary standards. Acharya Charak provided Aharavidhividhan (dietary recommendations), which can stop many diseases from developing purely as a result of poor dietary practises. Each factor's scientific basis is described. If the Aharavidhividhana is properly practised, it contributes to better health and a longer life. Additionally important are the Aahara intake's timing, location, volume, and mode. If taken properly, Aahara promotes healthy body development; however, if taken incorrectly, it can cause a number of problems. As a result, Aharavidhividhanais crucial for both the disease's cause and its treatment</p> Bhagya Shree Potter Ashok Kumar Sharma Ayushi Nigam Naval Singh Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 51 54 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6209 Effect of Yogasan on Maansik Swasthya- A Review Article <p>The term is derived from the Sanskrit Ayur, meaning ' life" or "longevity," and Veda, meaning "knowledge" or " science. Ayurveda is that which deals with good, bad, happy and unhappy life, its promoters and non-promoters, measure and nature). "Ayus' means the conjunction of body, sense organs, mind and self and is known by the synonyms dhari, jivita, nityaga and anubandha. Mental health is not mere absence of mental illness, but is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stress of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. Yoga and Asan is play an important role in Maansik Swasthya. The physical exercises (asanas) may increase patient's physical flexibility, coordination, and strength, while the Pranayaam and meditation may calm and focus the mind to develop greater awareness and diminish anxiety, and thus result in higher quality of life. Other beneficial effects might involve a reduction of distress, Uchha Raktachap, and improvements in resilience, mood, and metabolic regulation.</p> Manu Devi Gargi Pareek Deepa Mahesh Dixit Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-28 2023-02-28 6 2 55 57 10.47223/IRJAY.2023.6210
