Garbhini Chardi (Emesis Gravidarum) is a common condition seen in most of the pregnant women probably in 1st trimester worldwide in about 50 - 80 %. It may however occurs at others time of the day also. Altered Hormonal and Immunological stages are responsible for initiation of this manifestation which is probably aggravated by neurogenic factors. The stage of severe type of vomiting i.e. Hyperemesis Gravidarum leads to dehydration, nutritional and metabolic imbalances causing physical and psychological disturbance which in turn affects the health of the fetus. So iť s early management in milder stage is essential. For it’s management, assessment of relative predominance of various Doshas (Humour) should be made and along with that nutritional fulfillment of mother is also important. Keeping this in view an attempt is being made to control Garbhini Chardi on the principles of Ayurveda the formulation of ‘Lajamanda with Sharkarä as explained by Acharya Kashyap & Yogaratnakara.

A single blind clinical study with minimum of 30 patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria were randomly selected and assigned into 2 groups of 15 patients each. Control group (Group A) were given standard modern medication Tab. Doxylamine Succinate 10mg, with the dose of 2 tablets at bedtime for 15 days. Trial group (Group B) were administered with Lajamanda & Sharkara with the dose of 20 ml B.D. (2 Times a Day) orean be consumed in excess as per the Agni (digestive fire) ofthe patient.
