Abstract: Endometriosis can lead to painful periods, severe abdominal pain during the menstrual cycle or before that causing discomfort with bowel movements. Endometriosis symptoms differ. Some women have minor symptoms, while others have moderate to severe symptoms. The degree or stage of the illness is not indicated by the severity of discomfort. Even if a patient has a minor type of condition, she may be in excruciating agony. It is also possible to have a severe type while feeling very little pain.
Vijaya can be an effective solution for the pain due to endometriosis. It not only suppresses the abdominal pain but also eradicates it completely after a course of time. Trailokya Vijaya Vati worked really well on the patient and could treat her severe abdominal pain with regular usage of the medicine as per the dosage being suggested.
According to Ayurveda endometriosis can be correlated to Vatala Yoni Vyapat, the causes for this can be vitiation of Vata dosha in a woman having Vata type of body constitution or having regular food or lifestyle which vitiate Vata dosha. The vitiated Vata dosha reaches the reproductive system of the female and causes symptoms of Vatala Yoni Vyapat.
Endometriosis is a gynecological condition that is often characterized by chronic pain, blood loss, growth of ovarian cysts, formation of scar tissue, and interference with other normal bodily functions. For many women with endometriosis, the emotional side effects can devastate many other areas of their lives leading them to report conditions such as anxiety, depression, irritability, and hopelessness.
A 22-year female patient came to the OPD with complaints of severe lower abdominal pain after and before the Menstrual Cycle and tremendous pain during the Cycle.
The patient took Allopathy and homeopathy treatment earlier and went through laparoscopy too. The patient was underweight with Niram Jivha & H/o Constipation & Hemoglobin level was just 9gm/dL
According to her symptoms treatment was planned with Sukumar Ghrita- 1 tsp BD, Trailokya Vijaya Vati 2 BD, Avipatikar Ch- 5gm at bedtime & Kumariasav 15ml with an equal quantity of water twice a day
Unsuccessful management through conventional treatment in the initial period of illness led to the degradation of the morale of the patient. However soon after starting the Ayurvedic treatment, her symptoms began to subside within seven days and the complete recovery was ensured till the next cycle. Trailokya Vijaya Vati in a dosage of 2BD in addition to other medicines. The patient is now happy and does not feel anxious anymore.
Samprapti Vighatana of the Vatala Yoni Vyapat is achieved by a combination of herbal formulation, which acts as Vatashamak and Brimhana. And also acts on the central nervous system. Vata Vitiation is the chief cause behind the disease which is corrected with the help of Trailokya Vijaya Vati & Sukumar Ghrit. These are both medicines that work as anti-inflammatory & help to reduce inflammation and pelvic pain. In addition to all these, Trailokya Vijaya Vati, the herbal formulation, has been added in the prescription since the beginning of treatment for working on Apana Vayu.
This case signifies how effective Ayurveda and Trailokya Vijaya Vati are in endometriosis. It is suggested that Trailokya Vijaya Vati and Ayurvedic Cannabis preparations be evaluated for potential use in cases of Endometriosis.
