Abstract

ROLE OF TAKRARISHTA IN THE STATE OF MALABSORPTION

S. Jaya Lekshmi*, Arun Pratap, Arjun Chand C. P., Lekshmi R. and Kasthuri Nair A.

Abstract

Malabsorption is a condition that prevents the absorption of nutrients like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals through small intestine, which is clinically noted through varying symptoms like weight loss, abdominal cramps, steatorrhea, bloating, diarrhoea, occational constipation etc. Defective absorption is mainly due to a defective small intestine. In Ayurvedic concepts Grahani is an organ in Annavaha Srotas which can be correlated with the organ Small intestine, where Agni is present and is responsible for all sort of Pachana, Grahana, Vivechana and Munjana of digested materials. Defective Grahani leads to a condition of Grahani Dosha due to Mandagni and exhibits the symptoms like Karshya, Gururvarcha Pravarthanam, Muhur Baddham Muhur Dravam etc. Hence in such condition the Mandagni is to be corrected and one such formulation to correct Mandagni is Takrarishta. Takrarishta is a Sandhana Kalpana, mentioned in Caraka Samhitha Grahani Roga Adhikara, which is extensively used in almost all types of GI disorders. The main indications as per the formulation are Gulma, Arsha, Shotha, Krimi, Prameha and Udara Roga. The formulation contains Takra as Dravadravya along with Prakshepa Dravyas- Ajamoda, Amalaki, Hareethaki, Maricha and Pancha Lavana, hence the formulation is called as Takrarishta. This Anagni Siddha Kalpana is Deepana, Rochana, Varnya, Triptikara and Vatanulomana. All these properties do Srotosodhana and have good Grahi Swabhava. It seems much effective from mere malabsorption diseases to severe metabolic disorders. It proves its efficacy due to Deepana, Pachana, Srotosodhana and Grahi guna of Takrarishta. It also stimulates appetite by increasing digestive secretions.

Keywords: Malabsorption, Grahani, Mandagni, Takrarishta.
