During the management of disease number of formulations are mentioned which helps to overcome the disease. Many plants and their formulations are mentioned in Ayurvedic texts .Their mode of action, formulation and dosage is also being explained. The special branch of Ayurveda which deals with the general principles related to the Ayurveda pharmacognosy and pharmacology is called as Dravayaguna. Namajnana, Rupajnana, Gunajnana, and Yuktijnana are only a few of the components that make up Dravyaguna Vigyan. The Dravyaguna Vigyan in Ayurveda is a platform where we may understand the qualities of Dravya (medicines) comprehensively. If we take the word "Dravya Guna" at its literal definition, dravaya means material or objects, and "Guna" implies property, relates Dravyaguna Vigyan Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipak, and Prabhav are considered while examining the pharmacological effects of medications. Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipak, and Prabhav are said to be intrinsic qualities of medications in Ayurveda, and they merely serve to enhance the drug's therapeutic effects. Therefore, I am offering this study about the fundamental idea of Dravyaguna and how its qualities contribute to pharmacological activities.</em></p> Dr. Rajesh Kumar Verma RAJ Copyright (c) 2023 Dr. Rajesh Kumar Verma RAJ https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-10-25 2023-10-25 1 3 49 53 10.54060/ijahr.2023.19 Madhumeha W.S.R To Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus http://ahr.a2zjournals.com/index.php/ahr/article/view/16 <p><em>India is the capital of Diabetes Mellitus accounting for 1 in 6 (17%) of all cases of diabetes worldwide. Now-a-days, lack of sufficient physical activity and sedentary lifestyles are the main risk factors for Diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by the persistence of hyperglycemia due to defects in insulin secretion and abnormal insu-lin function. Prameha, a disease described in Ayurveda in the letter stage develops into Madhumeha and may be correlated with Diabetes Mellitus. Material and Methods: In order to focus on the disease status, the etiological factors, clinical fea-tures, Pathophysiology, Pathogenesis, Diagnosis of disease, and preventive measures described in various contexts and the views of researchers are taken into consideration as methods of the review. Discussion and conclusion: Ayurveda strongly believes in the importance of preventive, promotive, and curative aspects to maintain health status. Preventive health can be achieved by the principles of Dinacharya, Ritucharya, Sadvritta and Achara Rasayan, Hita ahara, and Virudha ahara men-tioned in Ayurveda, Health promotion enables individuals, families, populations, and communities to adopt lifestyles that promote and improve health. But now a days people follow sedentary lifestyles rather than this. Due to lack of sufficient physical activity several lifestyle disorders arise, Madhumeha is one of them. It is a subtype of Prameha Characterized by passing of urine like Madhu (Honey). It may be co-related with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Polyurea, Polydipsia &amp; Polyphagia are the symptoms of DM. There are a lot of complications of the disease from acute metabolic complications to Systemic. But it can be prevented &amp; managed by following the Principles of Ayurveda.</em>.</p> Dr. Sangram Keshari Swain Copyright (c) 2023 Dr. Sangram Keshari Swain https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-10-25 2023-10-25 1 3 32 39 10.54060/ijahr.2023.16 Basic Concepts of Human Nutrition (Poshana) in Ayurveda http://ahr.a2zjournals.com/index.php/ahr/article/view/8 <p><em>Ayurveda is a 6000-year-old care system that asserts that science, philosophy &amp; spirituality are necessary aspects for a healthy living. Ayurveda is considered not only a comprehensive medical system but also a way of life. Nutrition plays a central role in ayurvedic living. Ayurveda places special emphasis on ahara, anna as a means to good life, health &amp; wellness. Healthy &amp; wholesome food nourishes the mind, body &amp; soul. Food is the life of the living being because the direct fruit of the food is the life bearer, it is seen. Our body is composed of tridosha, dhatu &amp;mala. Health as nutrition means balance in bi-ahumours, tissue &amp; wastes, good digestive power, positive &amp; happy attitude in senses, mind &amp; soul indicates the healthy condition of human being. The primary purpose of Ayurveda is not only the treatment of disease but prevention also. Three pillar of life-Aahar, Nidra &amp; Bhamacharya. Diet is the first important pillar of life. It’s very much beneficial to our life then the life will be happy with increasing body strength, color, complexion &amp; growth, but misuse of these three things is harmful to our body. Rasayana &amp; invigoration there are special foods &amp; herbs to prevent aging, strengthen, immunity, improve mental faculties &amp; increase vitality. Vajikarana substances are specially used as aphrodisiac &amp; fertility improving agents. Such foods &amp; substances should be consumed regularly so that health is followed (maintenance) that is health remains good &amp; diseases which have not arisen can’t be originated. Living all other worldly activities, the body should be followed because when the body is absent, there is a lack of all things for men. Those who live, lives senses, receiving praise from gentleman, being dis-ease free live 36000 nights (days) up to 100 years.</em></p> Raju Ninama Copyright (c) 2023 Raju Ninama https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-10-25 2023-10-25 1 3 1 24 10.54060/ijahr.2023.8 A Review on Attyayik Chikitsa Yog in Bhaishajyratnavali-Vishchikitsa Prakaranam http://ahr.a2zjournals.com/index.php/ahr/article/view/18 <p><em>Importance of Ayurveda is now worldwide accepted.

The term "kushtha" has been used in Ayurveda to designate all skin conditions. Maha-kushtha and Kshudra Kushtha are the additional divisions that they fall under. According to Acharyas, Tridoshik participation is present in every kushtha. Nonetheless, the dosha dominance determines the sort of kushtha. Seven factors—three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), four Dushyas (Tvaka, Mamasa, Shonita, and laseeka), and one other—are vitiated, according to the Acharyas, and this causes Kushtha to manifest. Because the Charaka Samhita describes how to cure Kushtha and explains external therapies for the condition, it is clear that the Ayurvedic classics place a high value on the condition. Acharya Charaka listed 10 treatments for skin conditions as part of the Kushthaghna mahakashaya group in the Sutra sthan of the Charaka Samhita. Acharya Charak described Kushthaghna Mahakashaya for the treatment of Kushtha roga (skin disorders). There are ten medications in it. The major focus of this review is on many facets of Kushtha and Kushthaghna Maha-kashyaya.</em></p> Dr. Arpana Gupta Dr. Rishabh Jain Dr. Swati Nagpal Copyright (c) 2023 Dr. Arpana Gupta, Dr. Rishabh Jain, Dr. Swati Nagpal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-10-25 2023-10-25 1 3 40 48 10.54060/ijahr.2023.11
