Ayurveda literature considers Snehana & swedana are the prime modalities of chikista in vata vyadhi. Janu basti being an innovative procedure evolved from Shirobasti has been studied with various sneha yogas to conclude remarkable efficacy in the condition of Janu sandhigata vata relates with the disease Osteoarthritis. Even though Janu Pichu too advocates the same principle producing Sthanika Snehana & Swedana effect retaining the oil for stipulated time period, no study has been conducted yet to evaluate the efficacy of the same. So in the current study the main objective was to compare and evaluate the efficacy of Janu basti and Janu Pichu with Murivenna in Janu sandhigata vata. In the present study Janu basti showed significant result in relieving the symptoms of Janu sandhigata vata.

Psoriasis is one among the most common skin disorders encountered in clinical practice. It is a chronic disease that has substantial psychological and social impact on a patient’s life. Even though various treatment modalities are available in contemporary system of medicine including topical therapy, corticosteroids, cytotoxic drugs, photo chemotherapy. Most of these treatment modalities have serious limitations as they are only palliative. It is also important to note that they have considerable side effects when used for a longer period. Due to its invariable similarities in signs and symptoms, it is equated to Eka Kushtha in Ayurveda.. Here in, an effort is put forward to compile and analyze the various studies conducted at Gujarat Ayurved University in the management of Psoriasis. A total of 27 studies on Psoriasis were analyzed from Post Graduate and Post Doctoral level research works, which revalidated the impact of various Ayurvedic treatment modalities (viz. Shodhana and Shamana) in Psoriasis. It was analyzed that as a part of Shodhana, Virechana procedure was carried out extensively in studies, where as Shamana therapy maximum drugs presented with Vatakaphashamaka, Raktaprasadana, Vishaghna, Kushthaghna, Kandughna properties, which were opposite to the etiopathogenesis of Ekaskushta or Psoriasis. All the therapies carried out were found to be significantly effective and clinically safe without any adverse drug reactions.

P. Dharmarajan, Dr. Raiby P. Paul, Thakar, A. B., Jani, S., and , “An analytical study on panchavalkala choorna-a poly herbal compound in the management of psoriasis”, Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biological Research, vol. 2, pp. 9-14, 2014.[Abstract]


Panchavalkala Choorna is a poly herbal compound made from the barks of five major drugs from the Ficus family. It is widely quoted as an effective remedy in various skin disorders explained under the wide spectrum of Kushta (skin disorders), mentioned in Ayurvedic classics. However, till date no published data is available on the analytical profile of this compound formulation. The present study was aimed to standardize and develop the pharmacognostical and phytochemical profile of Panchavalkala Choorna. The compund was prepared as per classical methods and analytical findings were systematically recorded. The samples were subjected to organoleptic analysis, physicochemical analysis and High performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) examination by optimizing the solvent systems. Pharmacognostical profile of Panchavalkala Choorna was established. Loss on drying, Specific gravity, Viscosity and Refractive index, Iodine value, Acid value and Saponification value of Panchavalkala Choorna were found within prescribed limits. HPTLC fingerprinting profile of ST revealed 6 spots at 254 nm and 4 spots at 366 nm. Two spots were merging in both the long and short UV, showing common characters in both the wavelengths

B., and , “Pharmacognostical and Physico-Chemical Evaluation of Siddhartaka Choorna - A Poly Herbal Compound in the Management of Psoriasis”, International Journal Of Universal Pharmacy and Bio Sciences , vol. 3, no. 4, pp. 67-75, 2014.[Abstract]


Quality control and the standardization of herbal medicines involve several steps like standard source and quality of raw materials, good manufacturing practices and adequate analytical screening. These practices play a vital role in guaranteeing the quality and stability of herbal preparations. Siddhartaka yoga is a rarely used and prescribed Ayurvedic polyherbal formulation mentioned to be beneficial in all types of kushtha (skin disorders). Siddhartaka yoga consists of Trivrit (Operculina turpenthum), Danti (Baliospermum montanum), Aragwadha (Cassia fistula) and ten other drugs. It was used as a trial drug for the clinical study in the management of dreadful autoimmune disease, Psoriasis. However, till date no published data is available on its analytical profile. Aim: To develop the pharmacognostical and phytochemical profile of Siddhartaka choorna.
Material and Methods: Siddhartaka choorna was prepared as per classical methods and analytical findings were systematically recorded. The samples were subjected to organoleptic analysis, physicochemical analysis and High performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) examination by optimizing the solvent systems. Results and Conclusions: Pharmacognostical profile of Siddhartaka choorna was established. Loss on drying, Specific gravity, Viscosity and Refractive index, Iodine value, Acid value and Saponification value of all prepared batches of Siddhartaka choorna were found within prescribed limits. HPTLC fingerprinting profile of Siddhartaka choorna revealed 4 spots at 254 nm and 6 spots at 366 nm. Two spots were merging in both the long and short UV, showing common characters in both the wavelengths.
