Abstract

USE OF A CLASSICAL UNANI FORMULATION IN QILLAT-ELABAN (HYPOGALACTORRHOEA)

Zehra Zaidi*

Abstract

Low milk production (hypogalactorrhoea) is a worldwide public problem as it results in introduction of milk substitutes to the child at early age. Qillat laban (Hypogalactorrhoea) is a problem of the lactating mothers which has been treated successfully from centuries by Unani Physicians with Muwallid-e-Laban (Lactogenic) formulations i.e. Safoof Muzaiyyed-e Laban consisting of Satawar (Asparagus racemosus Willd), Zeera Safaid (Cuminum cyminum L.), Nebat Safaid 5gm BD with local massage of Raughan Bedanjeer (Ricinus communis L.). It has been proved that Satawar have galactagogue effect in animals and human being. In a clinical trial it was reported that the oral administration of the Asparagus racemosus root led to more than three-fold increase in the prolactin hormone level. It has been reported that Cuminum cyminum has galactapoiesis property and significant enhanced milk production effect in animals like goat. Raughan Bedanjeer (Castor Oil) has been in use for its galactogogue property in many parts of the world as local massage. These findings support the claims of Unani Physicians mentioned in classical literature about the use of the formulation in hypogalactorrhoea. In view of the above findings it may be concluded that potential claims of Unani medical literature regarding galactogogue effects of the above mentioned formulation can be selected for future research to find out more clinical data for an economic, safe and effective medication for hypogalactorrhoea.

Keywords: Unani Medicine, Qillat-e-laban, Muwallid-e-laban, Satawar, Zeera Safaid.
