Abstract

PHARMACOGNOSTICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL EVALUATION OF SHWASAHARA YOGA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF TAMAKA SHWASA

Laveena Kumari*, Anup B. Thakar, Harisha C. R. and Shukla V. J.

ABSTRACT

Tamaka Shwasa has been mentioned as Pittasmudbhava Vyadhi, caused due to the vitiation of Kapha and Vata Dosha and manifested through Pranvaha Srotasa. Vata predominantly associated with Kapha gets obstructed in the Pranavaha Srotas and gets more aggravated and in turn causes Tamaka Shwasa. Tamaka shwasa can be correlated with Bronchial Asthma. Prevalence of asthma is increasing day by day. Shwasahara yoga has Vatakaphashamaka properties. Till date there is no research work has been carried out regarding scientific evaluation of Shwasahara yoga. The present work has been carried out to standardise the drug to confirm its identity, quality, purity. Shwasahara yoga contains Kantakari, Amalaki and Hingu. Pharmacognostical study reveals starch grains, septate fibers, epicarp cells, pitted vessels, simple and stellate trichomes, stone cells of Kantakari; mesocarp cells, silica deposition, group of scleroids of Amalaki. Analytical study showed 7 spots at 254nm and 3 spots at 366nm.

Keywords: Shwasahara yoga, Tamaka Shwasa, Bronchial Asthma.
