Shalya Tantra

Shalya Tantra

It was Ayurveda of ancient India that pioneered the modern concepts of surgery.  Ancient Surgical science known as Shalya Tantra is a vital branch of Ayurveda and embraces all processes aiming at the removal of factors responsible for producing pain or misery to the body or mind.  From Sushruta Samhita, it is known that thousands of years ago, very sophisticated methods of surgery were practiced in India.

According to Acharya Sushruta, it is best to use Shalya tantra when the problem with the body is beyond merely medicinal repair. In cases like cysts, abscesses, enlarged lymph nodes, haemorrhoids, kidney and bladder stones, urinary retention, and breast related diseases, he advised to employ the techniques of Shalya tantra. The treatment not only gives faster relief to the person suffering but is also beneficial in circumstances when the internal medicine fails to cure.

Rakta dhatu is let out along with vitiated doshas during Raktamokshana. The susceptibility of Rakta towards impurity is so versatile that it is considered as a fourth dosha by classics. Hence vitiated Rakta should be let out to protect health and to cure diseases.

Raktamokshana provides a rapid and sometimes dramatic reduction of symptoms in certain acute conditions especially where time is a critical factor.

Raktamokshana is an effective and safe remedy for skin diseases, inflammatory conditions of skin and soft tissues, abscess, herpes, varicose veins etc. It can also be implemented for various painful disorders.

There are different bloodletting procedures:

• Siravyadha –  Venepuncture

• Pracchanna – Multiple superficial small incisions

• Jalaukavacharana – Leech therapy

• Alaabu – extraction of blood by creating vacuum using gourds especially bottle gourd. Cupping or Hijama is also a modification of it.

• Shringavaharana– sucking of blood through cow’s horn.

Agnikarma – Thermal Cauterisation

According to Ayurveda, Agnikarma is a superior para surgical procedure. With this procedure various disease conditions are treated by inflicting burns on the tissue surface directly by using different materials known as ‘Dahanopakaranas’ (tools of cauterization).

These are different materials subjected to heat and used for therapy in different conditions. The specificity of tools of cauterization depends on the disease status concerned. For superficial conditions, materials used are of minimum latent heat, whereas in deeper tissues objects with maximum latent heat are used.

‘Pancha Dhatu Shalaka’ has been used on a regular basis for the purpose of Agnikarma irrespective of the structure involved or level of the pathology.

The conditions like Tennis elbow, Calcaneal spur, plantar faciitis, low back ache, Sciatica, painful conditions of bones and joints, etc are effectively treated by Agnikarma.  It is also used to remove warts, to excise corn from heel, to excise skin tags and for excision of external piles and Fistula tracks etc.

Post Fracture Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is the act of restoring function of an affected part to its pre-injured state. Improved results of fracture management owe much towards rehabilitation which is one among the three standard principles of fracture treatment. Rehabilitation should begin as soon as the fracture is reduced by definitive treatment. The post fracture complications including joint stiffness, muscle wasting, and restricted mobility of the affected part can be successfully managed by a combination of ayurvedic medicines and therapies.

Bhagandara Chikitsa  Anal Fistula

KSHARASUTRA treatment has been rated as the best available management for Fistula in ano with almost nil recurrence. Ksharasutra is passed through the fistula track and changed every week to help curetting the unhealthy lining of the tract and healing without leaving an ulcer. At times the tract may have to be excised.

Nadee Vrana Chikitsa  Pilonidal Sinus

Probing of the track is done to assess the course or direction of the track. Ksharasutra is then passed through it which is periodically changed. This cures the disease without recurrence and no excision required.

Kshara Sutra causes minimal tissue damage as it simultaneously acts by gradual and sustained chemical debridement of the debris and healthy granulation tissue formation. The advantage of this therapy is that it is a simple, minimally invasive, does not require hospitalisation and patient can resume his/her daily routine activities within a day. This technique is also very cost effective and is safe even in patients who are not fit for surgery e.g. Diabetics, Cardiac patients, Hypertensive patients, Elderly patients etc.
