Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I don't exact dose but I think its 20-30ml and its Rason siddha tila taila for sneha pana... This is good practise as there are two types of pathogenesis in Vatvyadhi, 1) Avarana 2) Dhatikshya..
Rason is considered best Rasayana in Avrita vata.
So why Vagbhatta says, Rasayana Gramini(रसायना ग्रामीणी)- best rasayana among all rasayana..

Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: How to process raw garlic to eat- soak garlic pods, with 4times curd. keep for 24 hrs. blanch like almonds. i.e. remove upper layer..look like blanched almonds. Deep fry blanched garlic in 1/4th part cows ghrut till lighter red coloured every morning and evening 3-5 garlic unit wise. small children- only 1 , or half if less than 3 yrs.
Curd seems to be antidote for garlic's dosh of causing pitta  vikruti- Anubhut yog.
only problem is may stick to teeth. so best to eat with a handful of roasted chana or brown bengalgram.
for Dhatkshyjanya vatrog. Lasun pak. same as above lasun preparation , lasun kalka with sugar syrup.along with almonds, saffron, dry raisins.
Rason oil- i tried this so sharing.
Kalka of rason +4 times mustard oil or sarson ka oil +4 times of that buttermilk(curd+4part water).
Heated till buttermilk , watery content evaporates and only oil n kalk remains. Filter n ready to use.
External n internal use for aches n pains in vatrog.
Dr. Jyoti Ashok: 8pods of lashun+  8maricha+ 1inch shunti+ 1/2 onion
Ground into rough paste , warm it &apply on painful knee jt. Good result.
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Allyl chloride smells exactly like garlics & thus . China is using in making canned garlic pickles chatni etc which the world is eating it including us.
Vd. Sandeep J. Prasad: Is there any side effects of this allyl chloride??
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: chloride.. corrosive salt.. kshar, as per Ayurved only ammonium chloride is used as medicine.

Natural antibiotic,  Lowers blood pressure, Stimulate immune system, Fire stimulant, pacifies vyana, good for respiratory system and circulatory system, good for sciatica (apana vayu).
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: Lashuna - Katu rasa pradhana, snigdha guna, ushna veerya, Katu vipaka, best Vata, kaphahara, So it can be used in any Vata avaranajanya & Kapha avaranajanya conditions. Example, IT peoples used to work in AC & apathyakara ahara vihara also following, so getting stiffness (sthamba), Gaurava (Heaviness), & Shoola (Pain) in the body,  So here to remove the Avarana of Kapha, Vata Lashuna Ksheerapaka to be taken in Apanavatakala just before the food in night, works very effectively.
Croatia Branko Markovic: how to use lashun in case of asthma?
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: Take Lashuna taila 2 to 3 tsp+4 to 6 pinch of saindhava lavana, do smash these very well, heat it & massage on the chest & backside of the chest means it covers the shvasavahasrotas, it should be done at morning on empty stoamach, 2 to 3 pieces of lashuna fried in little bit ghee+1/2tsp of guda powder can be taken just after the food in morning & night, this is doshapratyayanika chikitsa.
Vd. Tapan: Rason ksheerpak with Navajivan Rasa in AVN. Showes good results
Vd. Hardik bhatt, Idar: Lasun + milk or lasun + jeggary- gol is not virrudh aahar ..????
In some cast of north gujarat  they organise one day or three day in winter that they will eat only fresh lasan and ghee .. And they will get immunity for 1 year .. The elder of they cast not taken any medicine.
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Yes milk & garlic together or taken separately in a couple of hrs don't match, it could be interesting to learn from our Jain Bandhu the reason of garlic being forbidden  Ahahar.
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: Ayurvedashastra say's about avasthanusara (stagewise) treatment.
Amlarasapradhanadravya + Milk considerd as Viruddha ahara not Katurasa pradhana dravya.
Some of jain & Bramhin comunity people's not using Lashuna at all because of its Rajasika guna & contains more microorganisms.
Anand Javeri: A real Jain & a real Brahmin does not consume garlic

Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: Lashuna is contraindicated in Pittapradhana vyadhi Raktapitta, Visarpa, Pittaja hrudrogadi.
Vd. Rupa Raval: Yes I observed blood group A with bleeding tendency.
Dr. Rachana Mumbai: Rason is satnyajanan is it true? And it is given in good amount to sutika. One reason is vayu, but does it help in satnyajanan kriya.
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: During Garbhini paricharya & Sutika paricharya Brumhana (Santarpana) chikitsa is going on so Deepana, Pachana is very essential in this condition so little bit Ginger (Aadraka) & Lashuna (Garlic) is very much helpful in the food.
Dr. Dilip Pithiya: According to Sharangdhar- Lasun Pragbhakta Seven Darun Vatarognasak & Vishamjvaranasak.
Pathya Matsya Mansa Amlahar Madhya

Dr. Bhavesh Modh: આયુર્વેદ સાહિત્ય માં લસણ ને એન્ટિબેકટેરીયલ નો દરજ્જો  પ્રાપ્ત  છે.
આધુનિક એનાલિસેસી થી જાણવા મળ્યુ કે લસણ નીચે ઉગ્રવાદી એલાઈલસલ્ફાઇડ  નામના એકટીવ તત્વ ના કારણે છે જેથી તે ઉગ્રગંધી  છે લસણ નુ નિયમિત  સેવન  આંતરડા  માં રહેલ હાનિકારક  બેક્ટેરિયા  તથા પ્રોટોઝોલ નો સફાયો કરે છે લસણ સેવન બાદ તેમાં રહેલ ઉડનશીલ તેલ   ઉચ્છવાસ  માં બહાર  આવે છે જેની પ્રતિતી  લસણ ખાનાર ના મોં ની વાસ પરથી  થાય છે.  ( કદાચ  એટલે  ધાર્મિક માન્યતા  માં લસણ - ડુંગળી  પ્રતિબંધિત  છે વાર્તાલાપ  દરમિયાન  લસણ ડુંગળી  ની વાસ સામાવાળા  ને અકળાવે  છે )
ઉચ્છવાસ માં રહેલ લસણ ના તત્વો  થી વાયરલ  ઇન્ફેક્શન  ના ચાન્સ  ઘટી જાય  છે.
લસણ એ એક ઉત્તમ ટોનીક પણ છે લસણ ડુંગળી  ખાનાર વર્ગ  શારીરિક  રીતે સશક્ત  અને ટેન્શન ફ્રી  હોય  છે એમની જાતીયશક્તિ તથા પ્રજનન ક્ષમતા પણ સારી હોય છે એ પરથી  અનુમાન  કરી શકાય  કે લસણ મેટાબોલીઝમ  રેગ્યુલર  કરી હોર્મોન્સ લેવલ  નિયમિત કરે છે.

Dr. Bhavesh Modh: લસણ ખાવાથી  એસીડીટી થાય  અથવા એસીડીટી વાળા એ લસણ ખવાય. ..
આ સંદર્ભે મારો સ્વાનુભવ  રજૂ કરૂ છું
મને બહાર ના નાસ્તા કે પ્રસંગે  લાલ - લીલા મરચાં વાળુ ખાવાથી  તુરંત  જ એસીડીટી થાય  છે .
છેલ્લા  15 દિવસ થી રોજ સવારે દસેક કળી લસણ  ને ક્રશ કરી ને બે થી ત્રણ  ચમચી  ઘરે બનાવેલ દેશી ગાય ના ઘી માં સાંતળી મગ ના યુષ  સાથે લઉ  છું પણ હજુ સુધી એસીડીટી સંબંધે  કોઈ પણ પ્રકારની  તકલીફ  થઈ  નથી.

Bhrajaka pitta and its understanding in disease process according to #ayurveda

Dr. Prerak Shah and no other person is responsible for any unwanted effects, side effects or contra-indications in your health. Thank you.

Next topic for discussion: Bhrajaka pitta and its understanding in disease process.

Vd. Neeraj Pooner: Bhrakak pitta is located in twak.
Ushmakrit - sharir ki garmi rakhne wala
Anand Javeri: Twak --???
Vd. Neeraj Pooner: Jo twacha ( twak) me Pitt rehta h usko bharajak Agni sangya di Gyi hai. Twacha par pryukat snehadi , abhyang, sechan , avgahan, alepadi kriya me prayukt drvayo Ko pakata hai.Sharir ki chaya ka prakshak hai. Anaya karm - swed utapati - Tail granthi se tail utpan krwa kr twacha Ko snigdh rakhna- Ushnta ka niyantrak.
Ayulink: Is there any specific role of Bhrajaka pitta in disease process? Even in skin disorders?
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana:
Bhrjaka pitta :- Role in skin & psychological disorders.
Bhrjaka pitta
Located in skin
By Abhyanga / threw medicine
Stimulate tractile & mechno receptor
Increased neurotransmitter activation
Secration of melatonin & serotonin
Stimulation of Tractile & mechno receptor in the skin increase temperature thus causes kinetic motion it causes vasodilation in the subcutaneous vessel by which the veerya of drug gets absorbed there by improves circulation by increaseing blood aminoacid that is increasing plasma tryptophan in turn increase neurotransmitters activation causes the secration of melatonin through which serotonin is secreted....
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: Tvakastham bhrajakam bhrajanat tvachaha. A.H.Sutrasthana 12th chptr Doshabhediya adhyaya. Bhrajaka pitta is there in the Tvacha & doing bhrajana(deepana,pachana) karma. So it is very important that Niramaavastha should be there in the Sharera before doing the Abhyanga, Parisheka, Alepadi, then only medicines can work in the skin very effectively otherwise person can get allergic condition like itching, rashes, burning etc (Anupashaya).
USA Gary Yuen: Is there a place bhrajaka is discussed? I can find only little info in Caraka or Astanga. It is mentioned that one of the functions of bhrajaka is the absorption of oils such as during abyanga. How does this become deregulated and are there causes or signs?
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Bhraja means Complexion.  This Pita is related to complexion(छायानां प्रकाशक).Susruta has said function of Bhrajak pita in one word- Ushma kruta, means it produce body heat. It is deregulated by other doshas(vata, kapha) or other types of pitta Like pachaka pita.. As all pita depend on pachaka pita(आत्म शक्त्या शेषाणां पितस्थानानां शरीररस्य चाग्निकमँणानुग्रहं करोति।), vitiation of pachaka pita may cause deregulation of bhrajaka pitta too.
Problems in normal body complexion (discoloration) and changes in body temperature are signs of deregulated bhrajak pitta, as bhrajaka pita has role in body complexion and temperature...
Ayulink: This is not very commonly discussed topic, as you can see that we have very few comments from our learned friends. The role of Bhrajaka pitta in disorders - particularly skin disorders are not clearly understood in my clinical practice
USA Gary Yuen: Seems not discussed in many texts. This is a footnote in my translation of Caraka.
Resides in the skin and gives it luster and softness. Its functions are:
(a) the absorption of oils, ointments or any substance from which the body is coated;
b) enhancement of radiance of the complexion and the color of the skin.
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I think Bhrajaka doesn't cause any problems independently and it can't be treated directly, as in treatment of Kushtha charaka mentions first purification and then use of various external application. Most of external applications are contraindicated in case of indigestion, it shows bhrajaka is dependent on pachaka. This things already mentioned by Susruta
USA Gary Yuen: If one of the factors relating to skin color is haemoglobin, can it be related to that?
Ayulink: I think it is more related with pigmentation process. but in a way we can say that anemia can also be reflected on Brajaka pitta disturbance.....is it true? if yes, then we can corelate Brajaka with Hb%.
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Skin color is mainly because of presence of melanin/absence of melanin. So it can be related with melanin
Dr. Sushant Patil: If we consider Hb as Ranjaka pitta and read Pandu and Yaksha Kamala then we can find relation between Ranjaka pitta and bhrajaka pitta.
Anand Javeri: Does vitiligo come under bhrajaka pitta?
USA Gary Yuen: Carotenoids from a good diet of fruits and vegetables also impacts skin color. Pale without. But in this case maybe it is haemoglobin if there is an affectation of skin permeability and difficulty in absorption.
Ayulink: Brajaka pitta vruddhi lakshana: Pittavbhasta, santap, shitkamita, alpanidra, murchha, bal hani, indriya daurbalya, vin-mutra-netra me pittata (Su. su. 15/18)
vin-mutra-netra me pittata, kshudha, trusha, dah and alpanindrata (Ash. Hru. 11/7)
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Is it bhrajaka pitta vruddhi or only pita vrudhhi lakshana??
Ayulink: Brajaka pitta kshay lakshana:
Mandoshma, mandagni, nishprabha (Su.su. 15/11)
Mandagni, shitataa and prabha hani (Ash. Hru. Su. 11/16)
Bhrajaka pitta sthan (Location):
Twacha (skin) (Su.su. 21/7) (Ash. Hr. su. 12/14)
Nabhi, amashay, sveda, lasika, rudhir evam rasa, - pradhantah nabhi me (Ash hr. su. 12/2)
Bhrajaka pitta karma (actions):
abhyang, parishek, avgah ityadi kriya dvara prayukta dravyo ka paak evam chhaya ka prakashan (su.su. 21/10)
Tvacha ka bhrajan (Dipana)..(ash. hr. su. 12/14)
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani:
Symptoms of aggravated bhrajaka pita:-
Yellow discoloration, excessive temperature, desire of cold, lack of sleep, fainting, low immunity/strength, weakness of senses, yellow discoloration of stool, urine, eye etc...
Symptoms of diminutive pitta:-
Low temperature, weak digestive power, loss of normal body complexion...
USA Gary Yuen: The fifth is the Bhrajakagni or the Pittam in the skin which produces perspiration or helps exudations from the skin by evaporation. In short it is the Pittam which keeps active, under certain circumstances, the secretions from the sweat and sebaceous glands of the human skin.
http://chestofbooks.com/health/india/Sushruta-Samhita/Introduction-Part-18.html
From another site:  can be compared to melanin causes blackening, pigmentation and discoloration of skin. Excessive exposure to the sun, irregular eating, sleeping habits and consumption of foods and drinks that aggravate pitta are responsible for the aggravation of bhrajka pitta also.maybe studies of manjistha and it's action might help understand. seems to be a state of inflammation and maybe related to platelet aggregation.
Anand Javeri: Does vitiligo come under bhrajaka pitta?
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Such type of sign and symptoms are related to b12 deficiency so we can consider in bhrajac pitta dusti
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Many conditions come under  bhrajaka pitta vitiation
Complexion promoters drugs have effects on Bhrajaka pitta..
Candana (santalum album), Tunga(calophyllus inophyllum), padmaka(lotus), Usira(vetiveria zizanioidss), Madhuka(Glycyrrhiza glabra), Manjistha(rubia cordifolia), Sariva(hemidesmus indicus), payasa(Ipomoea paniculata), Sita, Lata..These are herbs  mentioned under complexion prompter dashemani...Manjistha is also one of them.
