Constipation is a common problem in elderly persons, with its prevalence ranging from 15% to 20% in the community-dwelling elderly population and up to 50% in some studies of nursing home residents. In these patients, constipation results from a combination of risk factors, such as reduced fiber and fluid intake, decreased physical activity resulting from chronic diseases and multiple medications. Ayurveda has clearly mentioned constipation under the heading “ Vibandha” and many herbal drugs have also been described for its management. Aragvadha(Cassia fistula Linn.) is one of the drug frequently used for the treatment of constipation. However detail action of Aragvadhaon various symptoms of constipation in its modified dosage form as granules is not evaluated. Therefore present work was planned. Aim: To study the efficacy of Aragvadh granules in the management of Vibandha (constipation). Method: 31selected patients of Vibandh were treated by giving Aragwadha granules 5 gm, twice a day before meal. Follow-up was done at 7th, 15th and 30th day. Modified ROME-III questionnaire was utilized to access the effect of therapy. The questionnaire was filled before starting treatment and after completion of treatment. Result: Results were statistically analyzed by paired t test. Statistically significant result observed in 14 studied parameters (p value = 0.043* to = <0.001*) while 3 parameters from the questionnaire showed relief but they were not statistically significant.

July-September 2018, 6(3):100-114
Introduction: The difference in the analytical profile of Bhasma prepared by different method is different and thus such analytical works may gives probable logics differentiating the therapeutic actions. Therefore present work was planned for analytically evaluation of Naga Bhasma prepared by two different methods. Material and methods: Naga Bhasma was prepared by using Parada and Gandhaka (sulfur) [NBP] media, another Naga Bhasma was prepared by using Vasa as herbal media (NBH). NBP and NBH were first tested for fulfilling classical criteria of Bhasma, then both batches were analytically evaluated by using modern physico- chemical parameters. Observation and results: Obtained values of Total Ash, Acid insoluble ash, Loss on drying and Free Sulfur in NBP and NBH are 98.85, 97.67; 79.47, 5.78; 0.07, 0.16 and 22.83, Nil respectively. FTIR study showed presence of organic legends and large number of functional groups in both samples. Higher proportion of Pb, Fe and Cu is detected inNBPthanNBH. Both samples possesses nano-particle size, however NBH is finerthanNBP. Conclusions: Method of processing significantly affects the physico-chemical properties of Bhasma as all parameters showed major differences in obtained values. Thus based on these findings there is need to consider Bhasma preparative method in Ayurveda formulations as well as while describing it on labels of formulations.
