Abstract


Kidney is one of the important organs in the human body. Though it is an excretory organ, yet its importance is not only confined to its excretory function. Urine formation is an intricate job. The different solutes present in the urine needs to be expelled out properly. Hence, the body always takes care of the urine composition. Urolithiasis is one of commonest condition especially in western and northern India. Of late,the incidence of this condition is sharply increasing. Many treatments including surgical interventions are advised to the sufferer. But, the recurrence of stone has pushed the patient in to a hopeless situation. India, is a land of different traditions and beliefs. The people of India are always in a constant search for an ideal medicine for their ailments . They opt various systems of medicine to get treated of their disease. Ayurveda always embraces such sufferers who are left with no hopes. Such is the case with the patients of urolithiasis. Many therapeutic uses are explained in the classics of Ayurveda and the lexicons of later dates. Nighantu adarsha is one among such lexicons written by Vaidya Bapalal. Since he belongs to Gujarat which is also a part of stone belt in India, perhaps, he could have compiled the unique remedies for urolithiasis. With this thought, a probe is done into the therapeutic uses for the mutrashmari(urolithiasis). A total of 16 therapeutic uses are traced from his work which are the combination of one or two drugs with one or two anupana(vehicle)
