ABSTRACT

In the 21st century the stressful lifestyle has induced a number of many new and classically untold diseases, one of them is allergic asthma. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 300 million individuals have asthma worldwide, a figure that could increase to 400 million by 2025 if trends continue. 50% of them have allergic asthma. In ?yurveda, there is not any direct reference regarding An?rjat? (Allergy) in Sa?hit?s but few references by ?c?rya Caraka and Su?ruta show its incidence in the form of Abhi?a?gaja disease resulting from Vi?au?adhi, Vi?av?k?a, Vi?a Anila Spar?a (contact with poisonous drugs, poisonous trees, and poisonous air) and other form of Vi?a (Pu?paga?dha etc.). In the etiology of ?v?sa Roga there is a clear mention of etiological factors like Raja, Dh?ma (Allergens) and ?maprado?a and Vi?a (Underlying factors) for the manifestation of allergy. These are the important causative factors that can be attributed to environment and diet. Because respiratory allergies (i.e. allergic asthma) occur due to hyper responsiveness of these factors in the form of histamine release and activation of mast cells, so treatment is aimed towards anti-histaminic and cell stabilizing agent. The present paper is focused on Carakokta mah?ka??ya to determine the role of ?v?sahara Mah?ka??ya and Vi?aghna Mah?ka??ya and their Dravy?s for management of Allergic Asthma. The paper attributes to the critical analysis of ?v?sahara and Vi?aghna Mah?ka??ya to elicit their pharmacological actions based on various experimental and clinical studies.
