Abstract

MADANAPHALA AS A DRUG OF CHOICE IN VAMANA KARMA

Hemant* and Seetharamu M. S.

.

Abstract

Chikitsa in Ayurveda depends on 3 principles which are Hetu (cause), Linga (symptoms), Aushadha (medicine). All the Aushadhis are derived from nature in the form of either plants or minerals which later used in for fulfilling the prime objectives of Ayurveda. From the Chutspada we came to know that the knowledge of Aushadhi is also important. Panchakarma is a field of Ayurveda which incorporates the Pradhana Chikitsa of Shodhana. Vamana Karma is one among the Pradhan Chikitsa[1] in Panchakarma to expel the morbid Doshas in Bahumatraavastha. Therefore it is a need to find the best drug for the procedure commencement which is having properties like Savibhatsama (Unpleasant), Ahridya (disliked by soul).[2] Alpa Matra (drug dose is least), Maha Vegama (Rapid Acting), Bahudoshaharama Sukhama (Easily removes Dosha in a greater extend), Vyadhinashanam (Capable in pacifying disease), Avikari Cha Vyapatto (Should not create any complication and discomfort).[3] Many Vamaka Dravyas are mentioned in the Ayurvedic literatures among which Madanaphala stands out. Acharyas have given Shresthta to Madanaphala among all Vamaka Dravyas and also it is now widely used across the India and became the first preference by the physicians. Therefore an attempt is made to see whether the Shrestha of Madanphala is true in its nature as explained by our Acharyas by the means of collecting different medicinal properties and research works to establish it as a choice of drug for Vamana Karma.

Keywords: Madanaphala, Vamana Karma, Drug of Choice, Vamana Yogas.
