Abstract

EFFECT OF CHANDRAKALA CHOORNA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF PANDU ROGA - A PILOT STUDY

*Vd. Anjali Nandwane and Prof. Vd. Siddharth Gaikwad

Abstract

In Ayurveda, the description of Pandu is available either in the form of disease or complication or as a sign or symptoms. Pandu is a clinical condition characterized by whitish yellow discoloration of skin, eyes, nails etc. The person with this disease suffers from decreased blood amount, strength and complexion. All the symptoms of Pandu roga can be correlated with Anaemia in modern science. The symptoms associated with anaemia includes fatigue, loss of stamina, breathlessness and tachycardia[1] which is similar to the ‘Pandu Roga’ in Ayurveda context. Due to high prevalence of this disease in society, it is chosen for the study. In contemporary medical science, many iron preparation are given in this condition but this preparations have common side effects like nausea, abdominal pain and either constipation or diarrhoea. Even in Ayurveda, many formulations of Raskalpas are used to treat the disease which shows certain limitations over time. Thus, Chandrakala Choorna is chosen here for the management of Pandu roga. Chandrakala Choorna is a polyherbal drug containing Kiratikta, Kutaki, Musta, Shunthi, Maricha, Pippali, Indrayav, Chitrak and Kutaja as described in Vaidya Jeevan. After observation of literature source given and research work surveyed by others on all above said properties of given kalpa, we can say that it will lead to expected Samprapti bhanga in Pandu Roga (Anaemia)

Keywords: Ayurveda, Pandu, Chandrakala choorna etc.
