A review on the botanical source and remedial measures for the adverse effects of Bhallataka in Khagendramanidarpanam
Bhallataka is a famous plant with remarkable medicinal properties known to the Indians since ages. Of late, its popularity and importance is at stake. The main reason is the occurrence of adverse reaction during its use. The reaction is somewhat idiosyncratic and presents mainly with the blisters. Though, the Ayurvedic therapeutics have mentioned few remedial measures, yet, there is a need for an effective therapy. Better chance for developing an effective antidote is only possible, if the regional literature wherein Bhallataka is used for various purposes, is studied. Khagendra mani darpanam- a regional work describes various remedial measures to treat the poisonous effect of Bhallataka. This article reveals 22remedial measures by using 23 plant sources.
