Journal Title:International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Tamak Shwasa is such type of disease in which recurrent attacks of Shwasa are hampering the life of patients and it is troublesome disease, because most of Acharyas have described it as Yapya to treat (C.C.17/9 and C.C. 17/62). Bronchial asthma mentioned in modern medicine closely resembles with Tamaka Shwasa. Work exposure to flour or cotton dust, animal fur, smoke and wide variety of chemicals has been linked to increased risk of asthma. Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of Krishnadi Churna in the patients of Tamak Shwasa and to compare effect of `Krishnadi Churna’ with standard bronchodilator drug Deriphylline in Tamak Shwasa. Materials and Methods: Patients suffering from Tamak Shwasa and attending the O.P.D. and I.P.D. department of Kayachikitsa, Government Ayurvedic Hospital, Nagpur were selected randomly. Patients were investigated as per proforma prepared for the study. Discussion and Conclusion: In this study, none of the remaining 49 patients of Tamak Shwasa were ‘cured’. However, 21 patients (70%) from trial group markedly improved and 4 patients (13.33%) were improved after completing the treatment. In case of control group 18 patients (60%) were markedly improved (symptoms relieved between 50-75%) and 6 patients (20%) were improved symptomr relieved more than 75%
