Abstract

Dr. Chakravarthula Adithya*, Dr. Rajalakshmi M. G. and Dr. Lekhan K. G.

Abstract

Ardita is one amongst 80 nanatmaja vata vyadhi that affects one half of the face leading to mukha ardha vakrata, netra vikrithi and vak vikrithi. In contemporary science such symptoms are explained under the disease Bell’s palsy. Bell’s palsy is the disease that is manifested due to temporary paralysis of the seventh cranial nerve on one half of the face which is resulting in the impairment of both motor and sensory functions of the affected side. As the disease manifests in jatru urdhwa pradesha, nasya karma is considered to be the prime line of treatment as explained in the classics. Ardita is manifested due to prakupita vata in jatru urdhwa pradesha, hence navana nasya with Dashamooladya taila was selected for the study. 20 patients diagnosed with Ardita / Bell’s palsy fulfilling the diagnostic and inclusion criteria were selected and Navana nasya with Dashamooladya taila in the dose of asta bindu was administered to each nostrils for a period of 7 days and the patients were assessed based on the standard parameters before the treatment, after the treatment and after the follow up period for 14 days together completing the total duration for 21 days. The results were then analyzed statistically. The overall effect of the therapy shows that the trial drug Dashamooladya taila is beneficial in the management of majority of signs and symptoms of Ardita/Bell’s palsy such as vak vikrithi, netra vikrithi, lalasrava, ashru srava, jathroodhwa vedana etc.

Keywords: Ardita, Navana nasya, Dashamooladya taila, Bell’s palsy.
