give up age-old norms

Only then will it become a model treatment.” [More reading]

Request to oppose the new gazette notification

Respected Dignitaries/Leaders of Ayurveda,

We came to know that you have been invited for the interactive workshop to be held at the Dept. of AYUSH, getting an opportunity to express your opinions on the new gazette notification of CCIM on the minimum standard requirements for Ayurveda colleges and attached hospitals. As you have already gone through the new gazette notification, we do not need to explain how it could become the biggest blow Ayurveda education has ever faced. The reduction in the number of teachers required, option as reader or professor in all subjects except Kaya chikitsa, superannuation of maximum age limit of teachers to 70 years, min. only 40% bed occupancy required and visitation by CCIM once in five years are major points of the new gazette which will worsen the Ayurveda education if the notification come into execution.

We are happy that you have been asked to opine on this and we are sure that being sincere well-wisher of Ayurveda you will definitely try your best for withdrawal this draft notification by expressing your strong views against it and in favour of Ayurveda education. We are sure that you will represent Ayurveda fraternity in the workshop more effectively, being true to your consciousness for the cause of Ayurveda, irrespective of any pressure from any corner.

At this junction, we would like bring your kind notice on the statements
made by Madras High Court expressing concern about the fading away of the indigenous systems of medicine from public domain due to a systematic campaign conducted during the colonial rule in order to promote allopathic treatment. Justice V. Ramasubramanian in March 2012 traced various historical instances which according to him, if ignored, “would put the indigenous systems of medicine in the Intensive Care Unit and that too in an allopathic hospital.”

Quoting this statement, The Hindu made national news on March 20, 2012 titled, “High Court bats for Indigenous Medicine”. (For full length of the news, please follow the link-
http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Madurai/article3016295.ece). In a concluding statement it stated “At present, most of the larger institutions promoting indigenous systems of medicine are controlled and financed by the State Governments, and little interest shown at the central level.”

Ayurveda has been suffering from poor care by the government policies. No national health programmes have included Ayurveda so far. On the other hand, now it is the time where policies made for Ayurveda itself are throwing it down. We are fortunate that you have a potential role in
preventing this from execution without amendment of the above specified lacunae and we request you all to strongly put forward your views in the interest of Ayurveda education and Ayurveda fraternity in the workshop on 7th.

We are sure you will utilize this best opportunity, raise your voice for
the science you belong to and ensure us that Ayurveda is lead by the right hands.
Advance greetings for the Independence Day.
Yours Sincerely,
*PG and PhD Scholars ,
Institute for Post Graduate Teaching & Research in Ayurveda,

Use Oil-Press Oil for better Result

ImageAyurveda from the past speaks about the wholesome in all aspects. The traditional oil-press occupations and industry are disappearing with the mechanization. We may get the oil of mechanized, but the question is whether the oil is wholesome and homogeneous.  To get more traditional told qualities to impose in Ayurveda oil medicines, the companies should promote the oil-press oil in the manufacturing Ayurvedic oils. These Oil-press works few months in summer and offers 10 Kg oil and 30 Kg Cake for every 40 Kg of Material. It can draw Coconut, Til, Castor oil, etc. which are commonly used in Ayurveda oils. To save the tradition, to get the best results – The Ayurveda Manufacturers should opt these oils for making Ayurveda oils.

A progressive review of Sandhana kalpana (Biomedical fermentation): An advanced innovative dosage form of Ayurveda

Anand Chaudhary1, Neetu Singh1, Madhuri Dalvi2, Asmita Wele2

Sandhana kalpana (biomedical fermented formulations) are one of the best dosage forms of Ayurveda in practice since thousands of years. In order to prepare these medicaments, certain sets of conditions are prearranged, which lead to fermentation. Thus, products bequeath with self-generated ethyl alcohol, which potentiate these preparations (Asava–Arishta), pharmaceutically and therapeutically. Commonly, medicinal and commercial components of these formulations are prompting many researchers to contribute in manufacturing, quality control, safety, and efficacy of these formulations. To cope up with this, literature related to Asava–Arishta has been surveyed from the Vedic period to recent publications of Government of India, ie, Ayurvedic Formulary of India, and presented briefly here. In this review paper, we have discussed pioneering facts such as nature and amount of carbohydrate, type of containers, optimum temperature, variety and relevance of initiator of fermentation, manufacturing, regulatory rules, and business aspects of Asava-Arishta. After going through this basic information, any academician or researcher may show a way to further strengthen this dosage form. [Read more]

Critical review on the pharmaceutical vistas of Lauha Kalpas (Iron formulations)

Virupaksha Gupta K. L., Pallavi G.1, Patgiri B. J., Galib, Prajapati P. K.

Iron is one among the major metals present in the earth’s crust and is essential for sound sustenance of human body. Its deficiency leads to various health ailments. Contemporary medicine advises iron supplements in iron defi ciency anemia. Ayurvedic classics also quote signifi cant information about administration of iron. Lauha Kalpas are the unique compound herbo-mineral formulations where iron (Lauha) is used as a major ingredient. Relevant literature (Bhaishajya Ratnavali, Charaka Samhita, Rasendra Sara Samgraha etc.) reviewed to gather information about Lauha Kalpas. Critical analysis of these Lauha Kalpas reveals that ancient seers administered iron in a better acceptable form. Unlike popular understanding these are not only Khalviya preparations; but Churna (powders), Avaleha (confectionaries), Rasakriya (solidifi ed decoctions), and Putapaka (incinerated) form of preparations are also found. Apart from solid dosage forms, semisolid dosage forms
mentioned in classics are very much useful. Unfortunately most of the formulations are not found in the market. Hence Pharmaceutical fi rms may bring these unique dosage forms in to the market to supply the healthcare needs of the community. It is interesting that iron preparations are used in Ayurveda in different medical conditions apart from anemia (Pandu). This leaves a scope for further researches on different dosage forms of iron and their indications. [Read more]
