Abstract

A CLINICAL STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF THREE INDIGENOUS HERBS BHRINGARAJ, APAMARGA, AKHUKARNI OVER PURISHAJA KRIMI (HELMINTHIASIS)

*Dr. Rishi Vashishth and Dr. P. B. Kar Mahapatra

ABSTRACT

A germ free world is impossible. Human are residing and maintaining their life along with several germs viz. viruses, bacteria, protozoa, parasites, etc. survival of the fittest is a common proverb, so, struggling is continued from the eve of human life. The present work may be called as a part of the struggling process because the most common serious helminth infections are prevalent in poor tropical and subtropical areas. In India, especially West Bengal, helminthiasis is a great problem. Anaemia, malnutrition, underweight and emaciation are frequently found in this region as a result of helminthiasis. Modern medicines, like albendazole, mebendazole etc. have not been able to completely eradicate the same. Also, these drugs have a lot of adverse effects. So, there is a dire need to search anthelminthic drugs to protect the health of our countrymen. As Ayurveda believes in nature of individual (prakriti), so conceptually if we are able to change the internal environment of intestine (kostha) by enhancing the strength of agni, then susceptibility or affinity towards production and multiplication of parasites may be seized or arrested. For the study three drugs viz. Bhringaraja [Eclipta alba (L) Hassk], Apamarga (Achyranthes aspera Linn.) and Akhukarni (Ipomoea reniformis Choiry) have selected from the classical texts. A clinical study was done on 80 patients divided into four groups 20 patients in each. The fourth group (Gr.D) showed maximum results of the drugs combination, which is discussed in the present paper.

Keywords: Krimi, helminthiasis, prakriti, agni, Bhringaraj, Apamarga, Akhukarni, modern medicines etc.
