Nature has gifted numerous plants to mankind for prevention and management of diseases. Kumari [ALOVE VERA (L.)] belonging to Family Liliaceae is traditionally advocated by the IndianAyurvedic medicine to treat a huge variety of health problems. Its burn wound (Agnidagdha vrana) healing action has been mentioned in Ayurvedic classics viz. Kaiyadev Nighantu, Bhavprakash Nighantu and Shaligram Nighantu. According to Ayurveda, due to its Dahaprashman (cooling), Rasayana (rejuvenating), Vishaghna (anti-toxic), Balya (strength providing) actions and Kledashodhan (removes kleda) acions, it helps in burn wound healing. This plant contains Lupeol, salicylic acid, Anthraquinones, Glycoproteins, Polysaccharides etc. which are accountable for speedy wound healing. It is endowed with varied pharmacologicalactivities like antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory, analgesic, anti-bacterial, moisturizing and cooling and anti-oxidant that aid wound healing.This plant has potential to cure sunburns, burns and minor cuts, and even skin cancer. The present review compiles information on Ayurvedic aspect as well as phytoconstituents and relevant pharmacological studies of Kumari regarding burn wound (Agnidagdha vrana) healing action. The present data is an endeavour to give scientific justification to the acclaimed activity i.e. its burn wound healing potential (Agnidagdhavranapaha) as stated in Ayurveda. It provides encouragement to investigators for conducting further research in order to develop an efficient and safe innovative chemical entity for the cure of burn wound.

Soil health Index demands organic fertilizer usage may be imperative couple with chemical fertilizers. Mungbean (Vigna radiata) yield and nutrients content were studied during kharif 2019 through coal and plant based humic acid (HA) application at NARC. The plots were arranged in randomized complete block design (RCBD). Results indicated that application of HA couple with chemical fertilizers significantly improved mungbean yield and nutrients content. HA at 15 kg ha-1 along with 50 kg ha-1 DAP recorded the highest grain yield (0.79 t ha-1) that is 14.4% more than the control (0.69 t ha-1) receiving 100% DAP application alone. The highest concentration of P (0.34 %), K (3.7%) and N (3.65%) in whole shoot mungbean were observed in the treatment where HA was applied at 15kg ha-1 along with 50 kg ha-1DAP. Residual organic matter improved by 0.06%. Based on findings of this study it can be suggested that HA couple with inorganic fertilizer application have significant effect on grain yield and nutrients content of N and P. It showed that HA mayenhanced NO3 and P availability through chelation and reduce soil P fixation.

Medicinal Flowers- An Ayurvedic Review
Dr. Umakant N. Rabb
Page Numbers : 166-174
DOI : 10.36348/sijtcm.2019.v02i10.002
Flower is the reproductive structure of the plant, which contains the active molecules called phyto-chemicals. These phyto-chemicals have potential biological activities when administered in the body, which help to eradicate the diseases and to attain health. Flower is the symbol of love and consciousness. It is one of the ultimate sources of happiness. In the yogic science each our bodily Chakra (Plexus) resembles the symbol of flower. Since Vedic period the flowers were used in the form of Pushabhisheka, Garland, and decorative purposes. The flowers too have spiritual aspects. For example Lord Bramha, Goddess Laxmi is sitting on lotus flower. Lord Buddha holds a lotus flower in his hand symbolises the Mantra “OM MANI PADME HUM”. Lord Shiva likes the Dhattura (Datura metal Linn), Dronapushpi flowers for Abhisheka. Lord Vishnu likes Tulasi flowers. Lord Ganesha likes Japa Pushpa; likewise flowers are being used since Vedic period not only for ritual but also for therapeutic purpose. Here an attempt is made to explore the various types of medicinal flowers, their therapeutic actions which were dealt in Ayurvedic classical texts. Further scope of study is to cultivate such medicinal flowers and evaluate the pharmacological actions by experimentally as well as clinical trials.

The strategy of price liberalisation and privatisation had been implemented in Sudan over the last decade, and has had a positive result on government deficit. The investment law approved recently has good statements and rules on the above strategy in particular to pharmacy regulations. Under the pressure of the new privatisation policy, the government introduced radical changes in the pharmacy regulations. To improve the effectiveness of the public pharmacy, resources should be switched towards areas of need, reducing inequalities and promoting better health conditions. Medicines are financed either through cost sharing or full private. The role of the private services is significant. A review of reform of financing medicines in Sudan is given in this study. Also, it highlights the current drug supply system in the public sector, which is currently responsibility of the Central Medical Supplies Public Corporation (CMS). In Sudan, the researchers did not identify any rigorous evaluations or quantitative studies about the impact of drug regulations on the quality of medicines and how to protect public health against counterfeit or low quality medicines, although it is practically possible. However, the regulations must be continually evaluated to ensure the public health is protected against by marketing high quality medicines rather than commercial interests, and the drug companies are held accountable for their conduct.

Material and Methods: Thirty four participants who had enrolled in a forty five days classical hata yoga training program. Their ages ranged between 18 and 50 years (group average ±S.D., 31.4±9.3 years, both genders). Those who have any chronic illness and mental illness, and those who are not willing to participate were excluded. Classical hata yoga training is given for 45 days, 3hours/day. At baseline and following forty five days, all participants completed DLST and SLCT. Results: Classical hata yoga training program showed significant change in DLST scores, increase (P-value< 0.000) in total attempted score, significant increase (P-value<0.000) in net score, significant reduction in wrongly attempted score (P-value<0.004). Significant change in SLCT scores, significant increase (P-value<0.000) in total attempted score, similarly, significant increase (P-value<.000) in net score, significant reduction in wrongly attempted score (P-value<0.000). Conclusions: The forty five days classical hata yoga training program was successful in enhancing the executive function among healthy adults.

Ayurveda as a complete life science describes the various treatment methods. Daivavyapashray chikitsa or no drug therapy is a form of treatment, roots of which can be traced up to the vedic era. Rugveda describes many verses useful in various health disorders. Rugveda samhita has mentioned Saurasukta in its first mandal, which praise the lord Sun to cure all cardiac problems and bestow the health. Ayurveda describes Hrudrog and its types, pathogenesis in detail. Hypertension is a condition which is the major cause of precipitation of cardiac diseases. The verse which cures heart disease is bound to cure the internal etiological factors for heart disease like hypertension.100 patients of primary hypertension was selected and divided in two groups. Patients in study group recited the the rugved rucha as per protocol and also given antihypertensive treatment. Control group patient received only antihypertensive treatment. The result were analysed after 90 days. After statistical analysis it is concluded that saura sukta chanting is proved as complementary module in the treatment of hypertension.
