      Curing the disease


The plant kingdom has always been the favorite source of medication in all-healing traditions all over the world. Ayurveda also makes use of various herbs in its
different formulations suggested in its classical texts.

As you all know that the Panchavidha kashaya kalpana (5 basic methods of preparation of medicines) i.e. swarasa (juice), kalka (paste), heema (cold infusion), phanta (hot infusion), kashaya /kwatha (decoction) are the basic 5 ideas on which
the branch of Bhaishajya kalpana (branch which deals with preparation of herbal medicines) absolutely depends upon. All the future developments in this branch are further proliferations of the Panchavidha kashaya kalpana.

These basic five ideas have certain disadvantages, short shelf life being the foremost. To overcome these disadvantages certain developments were trued & according to us the most effective idea to tackle these disadvantages can be sought in the concept of Rasakriya.


As defined in Sharangdhara samhita.

"Kwathadinam punaha pakat Ghanatwam sa Rasakriya".

Kwatha and others (Swarasa, kalka etc. Panchavidha kashaya kalpana) when further processed with heat becomes thicker in consistency (viscous/semisolid/solid), is termed as "Rasakriya". This Rasakriya has been attributed properties of being sticky, viscous like an Avaleha. This Rasakriya also has some disadvantages like difficulty in processing, drying, storage & administration (more so in tropical countries like
India & Sri Lanka). So the next development in this concept was to process this viscous material with the help of heat till it solidifies, which ultimately can be made
in to powder form, which we call "Ghana" (It is totally different from total extract).


There are many advantages in using Ghana like:

      Higher concentration
      Lower Dosage
      Subtle in nature. So reaches the subtle target tissues.
      Longer Shelf life.
      Better Bio availability


All the concepts in Panchavidha kashaya kalpana are based on the principle of extraction of water soluble principles. For that matter nearly all further methods of preparation of Ayurvedic formulations like Sneha kalpana (preparation of oils & ghee), Sandhana kalpana (preparation of medicated wines), Avaleha kalpana (preparation of medicated jams & marmalades) all follow the principle of extraction of water soluble active ingredients. So we can easily state that water-soluble extracts are preferred in Ayurveda for its various therapeutic purposes. So we would like to propose that administration of water soluble extracts in form of Ghana may be more preferable that any other source. This is the basic idea behind these formulations.
