Abstract

SOMA YOGA- CLINICAL STUDY ON TAMAK SHWAS W. S. R. TO BRONCHIAL ASTHMA

Guleria Praveen*, Kashyap C. P. and Sharma Y. K.

ABSTRACT

Asthma is a significant burden, not only in terms of health care costs but also, of lost productivity and reduced participation in the social networks of life. The Global Initiative for Asthma Control was implemented in 1993 after W.H.O. and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute collaborated to convene a workshop on the problem. The GINA guidelines in 2008 promoted the classification of the disease on the basis of asthma control which includes the control of its clinical manifestations and the responsiveness to the treatment given. Occurrence of the side effects owing to the prolonged treatment of asthma and reduced responsiveness to the existing treatment modalities makes one think of the use of alternative medicines for effective disease control and thus the scope of newer drugs. Bronchial asthma can be correlated with the clinical features of Tamak shwas. The drug under study being combination of a herb known for having anti asthmatic property, somalata with a herbomineral compound Rasa Sindura can be considered in the management of asthma both as a reliever as well as controller medication. Soma yoga is an important formulation in shwas rogadhikar in the Sidha yoga sangraha of Yadav ji Trikam Ji. It is a compound of Rasa Sindura and Somalata churna in the ratio of 1:20. Rasa Sindura is powdered and fine powder of Somalata is added and triturated into a fine powder. It is taken in a dose 5-10 Rattis with water or honey as vehicle in Shwas Roga or Asthma. Somlata is known for its anti asthmatic properties. In the present study it is in a compound form with a common mercurial preparation Rasa Sindura, with an eye to understand the latter’s yogvaahi (pharmaceutico potentiator) property. The clinical study was done at Rajiv Gandhi Govt. Post Graduate Ayurvedic College and Hospital, Paprola. It can be fairly understood from the study that soma yoga can be used as an alternative medicine for effective control of the disease but further study in double group is recommended.

Keywords: Asthma is a significant burden, not only in terms of health.
