Abstract

SHANKHA BHASMA & IT’S EFFECT ON YUVANPIDIKA

Neha Joshi*, Avadhesh Kumar Bhatt and Babu Lal Saini

ABSTRACT

Yuvanpidika is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from skin. It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of chest and back. It can be correlated with acne vulgaris. The appearance can lead to anxiety, reduced self-esteem and in extreme cases, depression. During puberty in both sex, acne is often brought on by an increase in hormones such as testosterone.[1] Many treatment options for acne are available, including lifestyle changes, meditation, and medical procedures as well as Ayurveda treatment. In Rasa Tarangini (Tarang 21/12) Shankha Bhasma is considered as a good drug for the treatment of Yuvanpidika.[2] According to Ayurved Prakash (2/263) Shankha Bhasma have a very good effect on Tarunyapidika.[3] Shankha Bhasma is an Ayurveda medicine prepared from conch shell.[4] The work was done on Shankha Bhasma evaluating its antacid activity by Aphale Richa etal, Puna College of Pharmacy, 1997. The Shankha Bhasma was prepared by traditional method & at the same time an attempt was made to substitute the Maranaa procedure by heating in a muffle furnace. The antacid activity was evaluated by preliminary antacid test, acid neutralizing capacity test. Rosset – Rice test & Reheis test. It was observed that Bhasma prepared by traditional method & furnace neutralized 9.5 mEq. & 7.05 mEq of Acid respectively. The superior antacid properties of traditional method showed significance of Maranaa process. According to Ayurveda Yuvanpidika is a Pitta dominant disease so antacid have a big role in management of Yuvanpidika.

Keywords: Shankha Bhasma, Yuvanpidika, Acne Vulgaris, Conch Shell.
