Kuruva Raghu Ramudu* and M. Paramkusha Rao


In Ayurveda Tundikeri is explained under diseases of oral cavity. This disease is grossly explained in Ayurvedic literature under classifications of Kantagata and Talugata roga. In contemporary science, it may be correlated to Tonsillitis. Tundikeri not only cripples children from majority of their enjoyable and learning movement but also makes adults to feel uneasy, restless and even bed ridden, if complication occurs. Antibiotics are the main stay in treatment of tonsillitis as far as the allopathic system of medicine is concerned. They can give temporary relief to the patient but cannot check the recurrence of the disease. If there are indications that the patient might have to undergo tonsillectomy also with the antecedent rise of postoperative bleeding and being first barrier to pathogens and site of antibody production, then their removal put a straight forward attack on our respiratory and gastrointestinal tract and further more surgical procedure has its own complication also. In this study 40 patients were divided in to 4 groups. Fresh paste (FP)- Seed rubbed against rough surface and made into paste and then applied to Group-1; Paste of dried paste (PDP)-Seed rubbed against the rough surface then made in to paste, this paste allowed to dry then made in to fine powder. This was applied mixed with water to Group-2; Paste of powder (PP) - Seeds were pulverized and were subjected for sieving to obtain fine powder. This was applied to group-3; Placebo (PL) was given to Group- 4. Group-1 patients have shown better percentage of result when compared to other 3 Groups. That means Fresh Paste is more effect then other forms. The result with Group-3 that is Paste of powder (PP) has shown next better results. Group-2 that is Paste of dried paste (PDP) has not given satisfactory result, but better then Placebo Group-4. Even with Antibiotic treatment Tonsillitis needs 7-8 days for complete remission. Besides it reoccurs. Frequent use of Antibiotics reduces quality of life, disturbs immunity. If tonsils are operated or removed then leads to total immunity problems. Tonsillitis stands as unattended problem in this society. Chincha beeja has effectively controlled tonsillitis permanently. It is not mentioned in any classical books. Hence it comes under extra pharmacopeia drugs. The rate of remission of Tonsils swelling includes it in Fast Acting Drugs (FAD) of Ayurveda. As the drug applied locally with special instrument called Tonsils cops, the drug inaugurates a new clinical extension of Dravyaguna vignana “Dravyaguna Kriyayogas”.

Keywords: Tundikeri, Tonsillitis,Tamarindus indica, Chincha, Ayurvedic Treatment of Tonsillitis, Dravyaguna Kriyayogas, Dravyaguna.
