1.  EFFECT OF VEGAVIDHARNA (URINE VITHHOLDING) ON NEUROHUMORS: (AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY) 
Ancient Science of Life  1988;8(1):55-59.
In the present study an attempt has been made to measure the changes occurring in levels of some neuro-humors, such as catecholamines, serotonin (5-HT) and acetylcholine in blood and urine, after distension of urinary bladder caused by suppression of urine urge. Distenision of urinary bladder was produced by withholding the urine rabbits and observations were made at hourly intervals. Canges observed in the levels of these neurohumors reveal that withholding of urine is a stressful situation. Inference has been drawn that suppression of urine urge (vegavidharana) acts as a stressful situation and thus the study validates the role of vegavidharan in aetiology of diseases.

4.  MANAGEMENT OF DIABETES MELLITUS (PRAMEHA) WITH INULA RACEMOSA AND CINNAMOMUM TAMALA 
Ancient Science of Life  1985;5(1):9-16.
35 patients of Maturity onset diabetes mellitus having the complaints of polyurea polydypsia and polyphagia etc. have been selected. For the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus the fasting and 1st hour and 2nd hour post parandial blood sugar were estimated. Patients were classified into two groups. 20 patients were treated with powder of C. Tamal leaves in the dose of 2 TSF T. D. S. and 15 patients were treated with Inula racemosa in the dose of 1 TSF T. D. S. for the period of three months. The response was estimated on the parameter of Joslin's Clinica in C. Tamal group 50% cases were in good control. 33.33% were in fair control and 16.67% cases were in poor control.
Inula racemosa treated group 100% cases were in good control. Thus it can be inferred that both of the drugs are useful in the treatment of Diabetes mellitus of Maturity onset. However, the response of Inula racemosa is better as compared to C. Tamala.

5.  EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF DUGDHIKA (EUPHORBIA PROSTRATA W. AIT) FOR THE TREATMENT OF ‘TAMAKA SVASA’ (BRONCHIAL ASTHMA) 
Ancient Science of Life  1984;3(3):143-145.
The plant Dugdhika belongs to the family Euphorbeaceae and is found all over India up to the height of 6000 ft. Various workers have proved it beneficial for the treatment of Bronchial asthma, on the basis of their clinical and experimental studies conducted on the mixture of two plants i.e. Euphorbia thymifolia Linn and Euphorbia prostrate W. Ait, taken by the name of Dugdhika. Again, both the plant species have two ecotypes – Red & Green. The present study has been exclusively conducted on the red ecotype of E. Prostrata W. Ait.
The paper deals with certain experimental studies on water soluble fraction of total alcoholic extract of the plant, to evaluate its efficacy and the mode of action in the treatment of Bronchial asthma. The study reveals that the drug causes relaxation of smooth muscles by virtue of which the spasm of Bronchial muscles during an acute attack of bronchial asthma, is relieved and thus exhibits its beneficial effect.

6.  CLINICAL ASSESSMENT OF MEDHYA DRUGS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF PSYCHOSIS (UNMADA) 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;3(2):77-81.
Clinical and experimental trial of different Ayurvedic drugs have been done by various authors on mental disorders and the reports have been encouraging. The present preliminary study has been undertaken to evaluate the clinical efficacy of a compound formulation containing five potent. Medhya in cases of Unmada i. e. Psychosis. The results were encouraging.

7.  RESPONSE OF COMMIPHORA MUKUL (GUGGULU) ON MELATONIN INDUCED HYPOTHYROIDISM 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;3(2):85-90.
The results of this study indicate that melatonin induces hypothyroidism in mice within eight days. Simultaneous administration of melatonin and petroleum ether extract of Commiphora mukul brings about a significant improvement in thyroid structure and function. Further, melatonin induced hypothyroidism is although a little reversible yet it is normalized quickly after C. mukul treatment. These data suggest that C. mukul directly stimulates thyroid function probably through some enzymatic mechanisms.

8.  EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON EUPHORBIA PROSTATA W. AIT 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;2(4):199-204.
SUMMARY
Water soluble fraction of total alcoholic in the treatment of bronchial asthma 1.2. The same fraction is studied here on frog heart and on blood pressure and respiration of dog, to screen its action on cardio vascular and respiratory systems experimentally.
The paper deals with the above experiments with their observations and results. In nut shell the drug is found to have cardiac depresent action an isolated frog heart as well as on frog heart in situ. The drug also possesses potent hypotensive action i dog and exhibits respiratory depressant action in high doses.

9.  STEROIDOGENIC EFFECT OF ALBIZZIA LEBBEK BENTH. IN GUINEA PIGS 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;2(3):153-159.
Albizzia lebbek a renowned drug of Indian medicine for allergic diseases has been proved to be useful in bronchial asthma and histamine induced bronchospasm in guinea pigs. Mode of action of this drug is suggested through the adrenals as the rise in plasma cortisol is reported by the administration of A. Lebbek both in humanbeings and guinea pigs. The dose effect relationahip has been studied and 200 mg, (alcoholic extract of A. lebbek)/Kg. of body weight hag been found to be maximum effective dose in terms of stimulation of adrenals and rise in plasma cortisol. Vitamin C and Cholesterol content of adrenals has been estimated after the administration of the drug and a strictly significant fail wan noted as compared to control. Thus the steroidogenic action of A. lebbek is inferred and action is explained to bo like ACTH.

10.  EVALUATION OF THE ROLE OF VEGA-VIDHARAN (SUPPRESSION OF NATURAL URGES) IN THE AETIOLOGY OF PSYCHOSOMATIC DISEASES (With special reference to voluntary retention of Urine and Neurohumoral Physiological and clinical changes in human volunteers) 
Ancient Science of Life  1981;1(2):83-93.
According to Ayurveda various diseases are caused by sepratlon of natural urges (Vega-vidhran), as testified by Susruta who has described 13 types of udavarta rogas. Here an attempt is made to study thy effects of voluntary retention of urine on a series of patients suffering from stress disorders in terms of Neurohumoral, biochemical and physiological changes. The study clearly validates the ancient concept of Ayurveda that wilful retention of natural urges is quite harmful.
