Abstract

AYURVEDIC PROTOCOL FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF PSORIASIS (EKA-KUSHTA): A SUCCESSFUL CASE REPORT

Dr. Arpana Gupta* and Dr. Swati Nagpal

Abstract

All skin disorders come under the broad category of kushta in Ayurveda. Eka-kushta is a type of kshudra kushta, occurring mainly due to the imbalance of Vata and Kapha doshas, which resembles Psoriasis clinically. Psoriasis is a long- lasting, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory skin disorder which is characterized by scaly patches with erythematous base over the skin. The prevalence of Psoriasis in India is 0.44-2.8%. It affects people of all ages and in all countries. Contemporary medicine has its own limitations giving short term relief. So, there is a need for treatment having good efficacy and no toxicity profile. So this case study was conducted considering Psoriasis as Eka-kustha and Ayurvedic management was planned accordingly. This case study intends to evaluate the efficacy of Virechan karma along with Shamana medicines in the management of recurrent psoriasis. A 30 year old male presenting with psoriasis was diagnosed as Eka-kustha as per Ayurveda. He was treated with Shodhana (virechana karma) and Shamana (Some internal herbo-mineral preparations, External oil application) chikitsa. Clinical observations revealed drastic changes in patient’s earlier symptoms by the abovementioned treatment modalities.

Keywords: Psoriasis, Eka-kustha, Ayurvedic management, Shodhana, Shamana, Panchakarma.
