Dr. Hem Parkash*

ABSTRACT

Menorrhagia is one of the most important gynecologic complaints in gynecologic practice. Any bleeding per vagina that differs from usual cycle in frequency of occurrence or in duration, or in amount of menstrual blood is abnormal, is termed as menorrhagia. It falls under the category of abnormal uterine bleeding. Abnormal uterine bleeding can be caused by structural abnormalities, an ovulation, bleeding disorder, hormone issues (such as hypothyroidism) cancer of the reproductive tract. In Ayurveda its clinical features resemble with Asrigdara, described in Ayurvedic classics under the heading of Asrigdara, Rakta Pradar, Pradara or Rakta Yoni by different Acharya’s. When excessive bleeding, in amount or duration occurs, during menstrual period or intermenstrual period, is known as asrigdara. In the ancient medical literature, considered to be treasure of medicinal plants, a long list of the drugs has been prescribed for the treatment of Asrigdara. Amongst various drugs 'Lashun Tail' is one such preparation which is highly praised for its efficacy against various menstrual disorders, described in "Kashyap Samhita Lashun Kalp adhyay". Due to snigdha, guru, and picchilla guna Lashun suppresses the Vata dosha and Lashuna has also emmenogogue property by which it normalises the menstrual blood flow. Acharya Vagbhata described Asrigdara as a vasti treated disease. Hence the clinical Study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of Lashuna Tail Vasti in patients suffering from menorragia (Asrigda). Statistically significant (p<0.01) results were seen in amount, duration and character of bleeding, giving a conclusion that Lushun Tail Vasti is effective in the management of Asrigdara.

Keywords: Lashun, Asrigdara, Vasti.
