The Successful Management of Mutrashmari (Urolithiasis) Using Proprietary Ayurvedic Medicines: A Case Series
Urolithiasis (Mutrashmari) is one of most-prevalent urological diseases in Asia. Even its prevalence is gradually increasing due to changing environmental conditions and dietary habits. However, medical treatment isn’t satisfactory in many cases, frequently necessitating for surgical management of Urolithiasis. Therefore, some self-prepared exclusive Proprietary Ayurvedic Medicines in the form of Decoction (Kwatha), Freshly-expressed Juice (Swarasa), Alcoholic-preparation (Arishta) and Choorna Capsules have been evaluated in such patients in Out-patient settings. This Case Series reports effective management of Urolithiasis (Mutrashmari) using these Proprietary Ayurvedic Medicines in ten patients. The results have been reported very encouraging, as multiple bilateral renal calculi were expelled out through urine within a period of two to seventy-two days. It provides an example, portraying the effectiveness of Ayurvedic Medicines in expulsion of Mutrashmari without need of surgery. This provides a lead to conduct more-sophisticated clinical-trials, to establish use of Ayurvedic Medicines and potentially alter current medical treatment protocols.
