In present era, changes in life style and food habits leads to imbalance of sharirika doshas, as well as mansik doshas which is the cause for Amlapitta . Amlapitta is one of the most common disease seen in the society. In the ancient text books of Ayurveda it is described that irregular food and life style habits are the main causative factors for the disease. There are two types of Pitta, Prakruta and Vidagadha. The Rasa of Prakruta Pitta is Katu and Vidagdha Pitta is Amla. The Amla Guna of Pitta increases in its Vidagdha Avastha, which further leads to increase in its Drava Guna, thus resulting in Amlapitta.
Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the role of Vamana Karma in Urdhwaga Amlapitta.
Method: A clinical study done on 90 patients of both sexes, between age group 16-60yeras were randomly selected. Madanaphala pippali churna along with Yashtimadhu phanta was administered for Vamana Karma. Vamana Karma was done in following order- Purvakarma, Pradhana and Paschata Karma. Assessment was done after completion of therapy.
Result: By Vamana karma, kapha & pitta may expel out from amashaya (stomach) thereby uprooting pitta dosha. Significant improvement was observed in all the parameters like Amlodgar, Tiktodgar, Urahdaha, Kukshidaha, Kanthadaha, Hriddaha, Adhman, Gaurava. In all the patient percentage relief on symptoms has been observed. This shows that Vaman Karma is effective in Urdhwaga Amlapitta.
