Abstract: “Pratishyay’ or Common Cold is a disorder where there is a continuous flow of secretions. This case demonstrates the use of Kameshwar Modaka in the management of DHATU-KHSAYJANYA PRATISHYAY commonly known as Chronic Cold.
This is a case of a 30 yr old male with a history of Chronic Cold for the last 1 yr. He has had a very disturbing schedule due to a continuously running nose, heaviness in the head, and other allied symptoms that had developed over time with the current condition.
According to Ayurveda, DHATU-KHSAYJANYA PRATISHYAY is a chronic condition that requires ‘vajikar dravya’ that works on the SHUKRADHATU and acts as BALYA, SHOSHAN, and POSHAN dravya. Vijaya is Kameshwar Modak has all the above-desired properties and hence can be a drug of choice in such a typical Cold.
Common Cold may not seem like much but if turned chronic it can be quite debilitating – especially if you are one of the many people who get several colds per year or suffer from continuous cold throughout the year. From missed workdays and reduced productivity to a decline in one’s ability to participate in daily activities, it is important that Chronic Cold should be treated completely through a thorough root cause analysis and treating the root cause itself. There is still a lot of research that needs to be done on the impact of Cannabis in treating common colds but recent shreds of evidence suggested that your symptoms can be managed using Cannabis if you take it responsibly.
A 30-year-old male was presented with complaints of Chronic Cold for the last 1 year.
He had tried all kinds of treatments for the same, but as time went by more complaints started to add up and eventually lead to a very disturbed and uncertain schedule.
Medicines to be used – Kameshwar Modaka. He was prescribed Kameshwar Modaka only once a day along with some other formulations. The main drug in his entire treatment was Kameshwar Modaka.
Expected outcome of the treatment plan
It was expected that the patient would get good relief from his set of symptoms and gradually this would lead to DHATU POSHAN and lead to SAMPRAPTI BHANGA.
As expected the patient got little relief within a week and hence concluded that this line of treatment was ideal for the treatment of DHATU-KHSAYJANYA PRATISHYAY.
The treatment was decided on the basis of DOSHA and DHATU involvement. The Vijaya works on the SHUKRADHATU and acts as BALYA, SHOSHAN and POSHAN dravya , and VATAGHNA which helps to overcome DHATU-KHSAYJANYA PRATISHYAY.
This case study shows that DHATU-KHSAYJANYA PRATISHYAY can be successfully managed with Kameshwar Modaka. It is supportive for further research, using Vijaya on different types of DHATU KSHAYJNYA VIKAAR.
