ABSTRACT
Hypertension is a complex disease that seems to be simple but causes severe complications such as renal dysfunction, neuropathy, cerebral disorders, etc. Moreover, the side effects of the established antihypertensive medicines in contemporary science make it even worst. Due to the highly increasing prevalence rate of H.T.N. in the current era of modernization, it is the need of hour to search some alternative or adjuvant modalities to prevent & to manage it. Though Hypertension is not narrated directly in Ayurvedic sculptures, however, based on the two basic modules of Ayurveda, i.e., Hetu, Linga, it is easy to correlate the Hypertension with multiple terminologies such as Shonitdushti, Raktavruuta Prana or Vyanavrutta Prana, etc. Using these fundamentals of Ayurveda, it is possible to treat it in primary stage safely with Ayurvedic methods without using routine antihypertensive drugs or to use it as an adjuvant in the advanced stage of the disease to reduce doses & duration of conventional drugs.
This is a meta-analysis of Ayurvedic interventions in the form of Shodhana or Shamana Chikitsa used for the management of H.T.N. On extensive review of the literature, 14 clinical studies (R.C.T. & N.R.C.T.) fulfilling inclusion criteria & conducted with 995 participants at different places were critically analyzed. Both types of interventions in the form of Shodhana &Shamana Chikitsa were found to play primary or adjuvant role in the management of Hypertension in its prime or advanced stages, respectively.
The efficacy of these interventions can be justified based on pharmacological actions due to their physicochemical properties. This study demands to conduct scientific multi-centric research studies with a large sample size in the future

Background: Nishamalaki or Nisha Amalaki representing various combination formulations of Turmeric and Indian gooseberry is recommended in Ayurveda, proven efficacious and widely practiced in the management and prevention of complications of Madhumeha (Diabetes).
Aims: To assess the effectiveness of scaling and root planing on the glycemic status and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) levels of Malondialdehyde, Superoxide Dismutase, Catalase and Osteocalcin in Type II diabetes patients with chronic periodontitis under systemic administration of Nishamalaki, an ayurvedic hypoglycemic formulation.
Material and methods: The study included 90 newly diagnosed Type II diabetic patients in the age group between 30 to 50 years with mild to moderate chronic periodontitis and was randomly divided into 45 patients of two groups each. Group A were Type II diabetic patients with mild to moderate chronic periodontitis taking supplements of Nishamalaki 1 gram twice daily for 3 months and Group B were Type II diabetic patients with mild to moderate chronic periodontitis undergoing scaling and root planing and receiving supplements of Nishamalaki 1 gram twice daily for 3 months.
Results: Independent t-test has been applied to compare the two groups. It has been observed there is no significant difference exists between the two groups. However administration of Nishamalaki and scaling has been all effective in group B parameters.
Conclusion: Nishamalaki showed protective effect and appeared to be useful in reducing the glycemic status, levels of superoxide dismutase, catalase, lipid peroxidase and osteocalcin in GCF in type-2 diabetes patients with chronic periodontitis.

Ayurveda has enough potential and possibilities to be employed both for prevention and treatment of COVID-19. This will provide an important opportunity for learning and generating credible evidence. It is pertinent to reiterate that participation of Ayurveda in addressing the COVID-19 challenge in India should not remain limited and seen as the extension of healthcare services and support to bio-medical system. Indeed, with adequate monitoring and data keeping during the implementation, important lessons and research directions are likely to emerge on the management of increasingly frequent and virulent communicable diseases. Implementation of proposed action is likely to provide evidence-based insights strengthening the scope of Ayurveda beyond preventive health care and care for non-communicable diseases. This Paper dealt with how Brand recognition of Ayurvedic food products during pandemic period.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is an infectious pathogen rapidly spreading throughout the world. The disease has become a global pandemic having approximately thirty four million disease cases with one million reported deaths, worldwide. The immuno compromised and/or old age people are most susceptible to severe form of the disease. The pathogenic virus enters the human body causing numerous changes in the immune system regulation. Several studies report that coronavirus causes ‘cytokine storm’ leading to adverse effects of host immune response. Thus, it becomes necessary to prevent the pathogen from hijacking the host’s immune system. The present study elaborately describes the scope of immunomodulation in COVID-19 along with ayurvedic herbs as potential immunomodulating drugs to curtail the effects of the pathogenic virus. Briefly, the study provides dual strategy of immunomodulation and antiviral herbal compounds as a measure to control the pandemic at current stage.
