Abstract

A COMPARATIVE CLINICAL STUDY ON THE HYPOLIPIDEMIC ACTIVITY OF DARUHARIDRA(BERBERIS ARISTATA DC) AND MUSTAK(CYPERUS ROTUNDUS L.) W.S.R. TO LIPID PROFILE

Dr. Vikrant Sharma*, Dr. K. Chandra Shekhar and Dr. Saurabh Singh Thapa

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is the unique holistic system, based on the interaction of body, soul, mind and spirit and the importance is proved in part by it’s timelessness, since it has existed as an unbroken tradition for thousand of year despite a no. of obstacles. Among all, one of the most common life-threatening diseases is cardiac disease. Hyperlipidemia is one of the common risk factors responsible for this disease. An earlier study on hyperlipidemia came to the conclusion that it can be treated on the principles of Apatarpana and by following the line of treatment of Sthaulya and Prameha, since these conditions arise due to Medodushti. The drugs with Lekhana Karma are said to cause Karshana. Daruharidra and Mustak are mentioned as the Lekhaneeya in Charak Samhita.[1] The ayurvedic classics quote the words ‘Meda & Vasa’ (Mamsa Sneha) which are very much alike the lipids. So in order to come to some conclusion it will be appropriate to elaborate the related terms Meda & Vasa. The present study is designed on the basis of pharmacological principles of Ayurvedic medicine wherein we come across with different thoughts to treat Hyperlipidemia. In this study efficacy of Daruharidra and Mustak are studied in the patients of Hyperlipidemia w.s.r. to lipid profile. With this aim, a clinical study was undertaken on two groups for a duration of 4 weeks. Daruharidra and Mustak were given orally, separately in both the groups. All the patients were kept under strict dietary control during the treatment.

Keywords: Daruharidra, Mustak, Mahakashay, Hyperlipidemia, Hypolipidemic, Lipid.
