Amol Somnath Gunjal*, Nilesh Nivruttirao Chavan

ABSTRACT

Ayurvedic treatment is based on two fundamental principles: Shodhan chikitsa and Shamana chikitsa. Shodhan Chikitsa is concerned with the five purificatory procedures known as Panchakarma. Raktamokshana was included in Panchakarma by Acharya Susruta and described it as the best procedure because it eliminates all three vitiated Doshas along with morbid Rakta. Jaloukavachara is one of the approaches of Raktamokshana described in ancient Ayurveda. Jaloukavachara known as leech therapy; which is an ancient method of bloodletting in which impure blood is removed from the body using medicinal leech. This therapy offers therapeutic potential in the treatment of many ischemic, inflammatory and infectious diseases, etc. It is regarded as the most simple and convenient method of bloodletting therapy, as well as the most effective in Ayurveda. Present article deals with the Ayurveda view on Jaloukavachara W.S.R. to leech therapy and its clinical importance.

Keywords: Shalyatantra, Panchakarma, Raktamokshana, Jaloukavachara, Leech.
