1.  Possible Correlates of Free Radicals and Free Radical Mediated Disorders in Ayurveda with Special Referance to Bhutagni Vyapara and Ama at molecular Level 
Ancient Science of Life  1999;19(1-2):17-20.
The description of metabolic processes, operating at various levels insider the body, has been essentially covered in Ayurveda under thirteen types of Agnis and their functions at different levels, which are often compared with the enzymes and biochemical which take part in biological and / or biophysical transformations and reactions. When these Agnis, at different levels, get disordered they lead to the production of certain undesired elements or byproducts in the system, which are called as ‘Ama’ in ayurveda and are considered as very important morbid factor responsible for causation of a variety of diseases and playing key role in genesis of most of the diseases.
The present article attempts to correlate the most recent concept of today's medicine i.e., Free Radical concept with that of the concept of Agni and Ama, described in Ayurveda and thereby opens newer vistas of search for remedies from Ayurvedic research, which may be helpful in the prevention and care of Free Radical Mediated Diseases.

2.  CLINICAL TRIAL OF CANDANASAVA, IN THE TREATMENT OF URINARY TRACT INFECTION 
Ancient Science of Life  1991;10(4):248-252.
Candanasava gives significant relief to urinary tract infection. Like other Ayurvedic drugs Candanasava might be acting not merely as an urinary antiseptic but also as a host-modifying factor, thus rendering the host-urinary tract resistant to infection and making the bacterial infection pathogenetically less virulent.

3.  THE CONCEPT OF PSYCHOTHERAPY IN AYURVEDA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO SATVAVAJAYA 
Ancient Science of Life  1987;6(4):255-261.
Ayurveda conceives in Life (Ayu) as a four dimensional entity i.e. Sarirendriya Satvatma Samyoga. Accordingly it adopts a comprehensive psychosomatic-spiritual approach to preservation of health and cure of diseases. Satvavajaya (psychotherapy) is described as a major non-pharmacological approach to treatment. This paper presents a critical study on the concept of Psychotherapy in Ayurveda with special reference to Satvavajaya.

6.  A CLINICAL STUDY ON THE MANAGEMENT OF DEPRESSIVE NEUROSIS WITH RASAYANA - VAJIKARNA DRUGS 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;2(4):220-226.
In view of the potential anti-anxiety and anti–depressant activity of the Rasayana Vajikarna drugs, a combined Rasayana Vajikarna schedule has been clinically tried in a series of patients of Depression Neurosis. The tratment consisted of a dose of Asvagandha Curna at bed time and a dose of Kapikacchu Curna at morning continued for 8 weeks. The treatment showed significant clinical recovery in these cases in the form of a notable reduction in the level of clinical anxiety and depression.

7.  THE PSYCHOSOMATIC DISORDERS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT IN AYURVEDA 
Ancient Science of Life  1981;1(1):41-48.
The Psychosomatic disorders are the outcome of the modern way of life and changing value systems and hence their incidence is rapidly increasing. These disorders may be prevented by necessary environmental correction in its physical as well as psychosocial dimensions and personality transformation. The scope of the practice of Yoga, Sadvrtta, Medhya Rasayana therapy and similar other ancient positive health measures in the prevention and treatment of stress and psychosomatic disorders may be fruitfully explored.
