*Dr. Pundareekaksha Rao Punna

ABSTRACT

Hearing loss is one of the commonest problem in ear diseases due to sound pollution, over usage of earphones, cell phone, improper care in early stages of ear diseases etc. According to Ayurveda it is correlated with badirya. Acharya Susruta and Vagbhata described the disease badirya as an independent disease, which is manifests as hearing impairment, caused by vitiation of vata and kapha. According to vagbhata, vata in association with kapha is gradually produces badirya. This study was undertaken to determine the usefulness of Asanabilvadi taila and Sarivadi vati in the treatment of badirya. Materials and Methods: A prospective, randomized, open‑label interventional study was conducted. The observational period was of 3 months. Outcome measured and data was analyzed using paired t‑test and Wilcoxon signed rank tests. Results: Out of 31 enrolled participants, 29 completed the 3months follow up. Two subjects did not report after 1 month but were included under Intention‑To‑Treat (ITT). Though there were overall statistically significant results in hearing improvement, score (P < 0.001) but no effect was seen in old aged. Conclusions: Asanabilvadi taila and Sarivadi vati has a good role in early and short duration cases of badirya. Further study on a larger sample size is desirable.
