C.Chi.15, Su.U.40, N.R. Sangrahan`ee
ग्रहणी is a disease of impaired activity of Agni, hence Agnideepana and Paachana is basic treatment.
Examination of Pureesha:
It is very important to examine the Pureesha whether it is Aama or Pakva. This examination helps physician to select proper treatment option.
Pakva Pureesha: (perfectly processed) Floats on the water whereas, Aama Pureesha: Sinks down to the bottom of water due to its Guru nature.
Dosha specific treatment
Pitta aggravated at its own site, and obliterating Agni should be removed out of the body with the help of Virechana or वमन.
ग्रहणी vitiating Kapha should be eliminated by वमन. By using Ks`haara, Kat`u, Amla and Lavan`a, Tikta Rasa, Agni has to be increased.
Procedures advised in ग्रहणी चिकित्सा:
- S`hodhana (Virechana and वमन.)
Formulations advised in ग्रहणी चिकित्सा
- Takra Yoga
Treatment of ग्रहणी according to Sus`hruta: (Su. U. 40/77 – 182)
As per the dominance of the Dosha, the disease should be treated.
Paachaneeya, Deepaneeya, Sangrahan`eeya Gan`a are to be administered early in the morning with Suraa / Arisht`a / Sneha / Mootra / Ushn`aambu / Takra
Everything that is Deepana should be used in Grahan`ee.
ग्रहणी is to be treated avoiding any contrast to the treatment of other concurrent diseases.
Treatment of Krimi, Gulma, Udara and अर्श is also to be adopted in this disease named ग्रहणी.
Diet in ग्रहणी:
Diet should have Laghu, Deepaneeya, Ushn`a properties.
Peyaa is advised to be used which is made up of Deepaneeya Aushadha.
If food is taken after complete digestion of previously taken food, and if taken in amount which can be digested easily, then it leads to perfect balance of Dhaatu.
This increases life and health. Otherwise, it leads to the imbalance of Dhaatu.
Role of Snehana in Grahan`ee:
Sneha is the best entity to enhance activity of Agni. Very heavy diet also is unable to suppress the digestive activity of Agni, which is enhanced by Sneha. Any diet howsoever heavy is unable to suppress Agni that is kindled by Sneha
Therefore, it is necessary to administer Sneha in ग्रहणी. Therefore Sneha enjoys a place of eminence in the management of Grahan`ee.
Role of Takra (Buttermilk) in ग्रहणी:
Takra is useful in diseases due to depletion of Agni as Grahan`ee, Ars`ha, Udara. Takraarisht`a is also useful in this disease. Due to following properties it is indicated in ग्रहणी.
Graahee (arrests excessive motions by absorbing the excessive fluid)
Deepana (enhances digestive activity).
Laghu (easy to digest)
