Dr. Nipa A Jarsania, Dr. Alpesh T Jarsania
Shwetapradara is one of the common complaints in gynecological practice. The word Shwetapradara, which is commonly used in practice, is generally found in different contexts of Yoni Roga in the term of Shwetasrava in Ayurvedic classics. Thus, in Ayurvedic literature like Brihatrayee, there is no separate entity of Shwetapradara as a disease. Commentator Chakrapani has explained the word Pandura-Asrigdara as Shwetapradara in his commentary on Cha. Chi. 30/116 (Shleshmika Asrigdara). The present study, deals with Shwetapradara as a disease form and not as a Lakshana. In this present clinical study, total numbers of 121 patients of Shwetapradara Roga from OPD & IPD of I.P.G.T. & R.A., Jamnagar were registered and divided in three groups randomly. In Group a patients were treated with Kukkutandatwak Bhasma, in Group B patients were treated with Pushyanuga Ghanavati and in Group C only placebo treatment was given. The entire test drugs in 250 mg b.i.d. dose, in the form of tablet with Tandulodaka, for duration of 21 days were advised and the effect on the signs and symptoms were assessed before and after treatment noted and also assessed by a specially prepared proforma. It was found that Kukkutandatwak Bhasma treated patients show better result in the disease Shwetapradara.
