Divya Nair, Snehali gaonkar, Chaitra lakshmi kn

Abstract


Ayurveda is an ancient and traditional system of medicine dealing with various aspects of Ayu i.e life. The Astanga Ayurveda or the 8 important branches of the science emphasize the prevention of diseases and cure of existing ailments. Panchakarma is one of the part of Ayurvdea which focuses on using five important therapies in curing the diseases. They include Vamana (emesis), Virechana (purgation), Basti(enema), Nasya (errhines) and Raktamokshana (bloodletting. Rasadravyas are drugs of mineral and metallic origin which are mainly dealt in another branch called Rasashastra which focuses on usage of such metals/minerals therapeutically. Though Panchakarma as well as Rasashastra are not included in Astanga Ayurveda, the utility of both the sciences are found in all the eight branches. The present article aims to establish the utility of drugs of metal/mineral origin in the field of Panchakarma.
