Abstract

ROLE OF PANCHAKARMA IN MANAGEMENT OF EK-KUSHTHA W.S.R. TO PSORIASIS (AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE)

Dr. Prachi Patni*, Dr. Vipin Kumar** and Dr. Sheetal verma***

ABSTRACT

Any change in skin color affects the patient both physically and psychologically. Psoriasis is a chronic, non communicable, painful and disabling disease for which there is no permanent cure, moreover it has has a great negative impact on patients quality of life because of its relapsing nature, the disease has always remained a great problem. In psychological aspect it includes depression, anxiety, bipolar disease, schizophrenia and dementia. Since immune disorders have been linked with the mental problems, and psoriasis is an immune-disorder disease, it might explain the connection. Though Modern medicine provides symptomatic relief but also has side effects in long run. In Ayurveda the disease is considered as Eka-Kushtha, it is believed to occur due to vitiation of all three Doshas. The imbalance between these three energies causes toxins to release in a person's system. Psoriasis is considered as Raktaj disorder. Panchakarma (Shodhana) therapy is a type of treatment for various chronic, auto-immune, hormonal, degenerative disorders etc. In this paper an attempt has been made to highlight the clinical picture of Ek Kushtha w.s.r. to psoriasis along with its management as per Ayurvedic classics.

Keywords: Ayurveda, ek-kushtha, Panchakarma, Psoriasis.
