Vd. Mayuri Shinde*, Dr. M. Pawar, Vd. B. Dhalpe and Vd. S. Atram

ABSTRACT

Healthy skin is the reflection of healthy body which will not only have an impact on somatic make-up but also on psychological and social aspect of individual. Eka kushta is a type of kshudra kustha described in various Ayurvedic classics. In Charak Samhita, Eka-kushta is a Vatakaphaja disease. Ekakushta has signs and symptoms i.e. Aswedanam, Mahavastu and Matsyashakalopamam, which can be compared with symptoms of Psoriasis. In modern medicine, there is no definite treatment for psoriasis but it has serious side effects like hepato and nephrotoxicity etc. Hence, it is the need of time to find out safe and effective treatment for psoriasis and here Ayurveda plays an important role. The unique treatment modality of Ayurveda provides long lasting results and a better life to patients through its three basic principles of treatment i.e. Shodhana, Shamana and Nidana parivarjana. A 36 year old female approached to OPD of R A Podar Medical (Ayu) college, Mumbai with chronic psoriasis since 2010, was treated with Shodhana chikitsa and with few shamanaushadhi. A remarkable improvement in this condition was observed in just 4 months of span.

Keywords: Eka-kushta, psoriasis, Ayurveda, Shodhana, Shamana.
