Abstract

ROLE OF PUNARNAVADI YOG IN THE MANAGEMENT OF PREGNANCY INDUCED HYPERTENSION: A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Amrita Mishra and Dr. Rajashree Shelare

ABSTRACT

Edema in pregnancy is a common symptom in late pregnancy as reported to be 50-80% in third trimester.[1] It is caused mainly due to subcutaneous fluid retention and by the pressure of the expanding uterus on the vessels supplying the lower extremities.[1] Early detection and appropriate treatment is the need of the hour to reduce the symptoms such as hypertension, preeclampsia, renal disorder etc. This case study mainly aims for suggesting a safe, effective and easy available answered for the management of Pregnancy induced hypertension and associated symptoms and related feto- maternal complications. In Ayurveda, Shoth in pregnancy is described as Garbhini Vyadhi. Punarnavadi Kwath has Shothhara properties.[2] In ”Bhaishyajyaratnavali,” Udarrog chapter 43-44, Punarnavadi Kwath is mainly indicated in Sarvang Shoth.[3] Therefore, the administration of this drug is beneficial in edema in pregnancy. The present case report shows markedly reduced pedal edema, urine albumin and reduced hypertension after giving Punarnavadi Kwath. It is evident that further studies in this regard will emphasize the affectivity of Punarnavadi Kwath in the management of Pregnancy induced hypertension and prevention of possible complications.

Keywords: Punarnavadi Kwath, edema, Pregnancy, Garbhini, hypertension.
