Next topic for discussion: Importance of Anupan..... (examples of same herb or formula, used in different condition with different anupan....)
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni: I have very good experience of mayurpiccha Mashi with anupan of madhu for muhurmuhur chatan for hikka.
USA Gary Yuen: Anupan are carriers of herbs? In general, isn't some amount of pippali, fat such as ghee, and maybe sweet indicated in most cases? Pippali or black pepper and some fat possibly help in most formulas.
Ayulink: Yes, anupan are carriers...and helps to penetrate inside dhatus and srotasa fast.....
I use anandbhairav ras with tulsi (basil) fresh juice for chronic sinusitis...and same anandbhairav ras, I use to control loose motion or amatisar with anupan of fresh ginger juice....why? I am not sure...but learnt from my Guru Vd. Dhimere Sir, when I was intern.
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni: I use honey as sahapan for kaphaja conditions and seasome oil as sahapan for vataja conditions , keeping the medicine ( like sitopaladi etc ) same. My Guru , my beloved father used to use liquefied butter as sahapan for dry cough .
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: In shwetpradara(Leucorrhea) Femiplex or Pushyanuga churna with Anupan of Bhat nu osamana (Rice water).
Dr. Jyoti Ashok: Pushyanuga churna must be first licked with honey followed by tandulodaka.gives v.good result.
Vd. Binal Jagani: In vatik kasa sitopaladi give with ghrita nd kaphaj kasa sitopaladi give with Madhu.
USA Gary Yuen: It seems Caraka includes pippali in most formulas. Is this still done? It possibly helps carry any herb.
Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay:While using Samasharkara for various conditions viz Recurrent cold, cough, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, sore throat, sinusitis, pain in the ears due to chronic cold giving rise to Swelling in the EUSTATIAN TUBE, headache,bronchitis, bronchiectasis, bronchial asthma, pneumonia, pleurisy with effusion, COPD ,In all such conditions with lukewarm water and at times with honey.
For piles, Fissure in ano, before meals with lukewarm water.
For Jaundice, Renal as well as Gall bladder calculus, Cholecystitis, PRAMEHA to be given with lukewarm water.
For SANGRAHANI and wt gain, halfway through the meals with hot Dal.
For Mandagni, DYSENTRY With lukewarm water.
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Haritaki
Kaphaja - with lavana
Pittaj- with sarkara
Vataj - with Ghrita
With gud sarvaroga hara..
Dr. Sreedevi N V: In rasousadhies like makaradhwaja ras betel swarasa z used as anupana.
Ayulink: Haritaki is used with different anupana according to season. Anybody does have this reference?
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Rutu Haritaki Bhavprakash haritakyadi varga.
1. Varsha - saindhava
2. Sharda - sarkara
3. Hemanta - sunthi
4. Shishira - pippali
5. Vasant - madhu
6. Grishma - Gud
Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay:
USA Gary Yuen: Is there a reference in Caraka? I found only mention of triphala after meals for one year. Astanga hrdymam mentions exactly above.
Vd. Dhruti Nirav Bhatt: Medicinal value increase with Anupan .
Sitopaladi with honey, Laxmivilas ras with Nagarvel pan, Laxmivilas ras and Tribhvan kirti ras with Tulsi patra.In dry Coughing Kantakari Lavan with ghrit .
One Experience Constipation, vatanubandh and vat Prakriti patient Hingvastak churns with ghrit and gives between meal. Vatanulomak and Vatsham am Aushadh gives with warm water. Kaphaj shaman Aushadh with Honey,Adrak swaras,warm water. Pitta shaman Aushadh with Ghrit,Sharkara,milk gives Effective result.
Vd. Tapan:अनुपानम्अनुलोमयतिकर्षयतिस्नेहयति.....????? चरक।
Vd. Sachin Kadlag:
Ayulink: pl share practical experience of same medicine used in different condition with different anupana.Also let us know the logic of it.
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Chabdraprabha vati for vrushya action and removing shukradosha good results if used with milk . And with takra and pure honey to be used for medavrutta vatarakta and sthaulya.Charak has mentioned use of shilahit in rasayana adhyaya.And in medavrutta vatarakta , use of shilahit ,guggul and makshika (honey) is also mentioned by charaka .Chabdraprabha has both shilahit and guggul .
Vd. Tapan:पुनर्नवामंडुरis preached to be given with Takra which is not a routine.I use it with takra. Results are better.I hardly trust honey. So i prefer chashani. Same results. I always prescribe chaipatti in kwath preparation. Gives avfreshning effect of very odd taste of them.
I prescribe Aasavas as nit only that too 4 spoons nit before meals. It produce a little effect written in Shashtras. Two spoons with four spoon water after meals is a futile dose.I do not hasitate to go with tea or coffee when pt is intolarant to milk or do not like.
Swarjika is my most favourite anupaan. I recomand everybody to go thru charak for anupaan and its differnt uses.
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Susruta has given lot of anupana for particular dietary articles... Anupan should be opposite to aahara guna (characteristic of food), in case of snigdha aahara ,anupana should be Ruksha...
Vd. Tapan: Some antidotes for the Ajirna has also been documented by bhavprakash
USA Gary Yuen: Caraka seems to make pippali the most common of all anupana. Evidence-based studies done in India seem to confirm that long and black pepper are useful in possibly all formulas, and even increase delivery of herbs and foods. Pippali might not be dosha appropriate in all cases, though use in a small amount looks beneficial.
A formula with ginger, will have delivery increased with addition of pippali.
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I think there is difference between sahapan and anupana
Vd. Tapan: Anupaan is for Aushadh while sahapaan is for Aahaar.I think.
Shri Minoo parabia: Piperazine of pepper is bioenhencer. Ayurveda knew it as YOGAVAHI.
One of my students Dr. Amarsibh chaudhury tried this with modern medicine with success. It was long back. I don't remember the details. But some publications must be on net.
Vd. Tapan:Vd Sanjay chhajed worked on pippali with AKT with positivity while Vd Vinod Rasala worked on Pippali with positive hepetoprotactive effect along with conventional modern treatment.
Vardhman pippali prayog also show sinergestic effect in plural effusions with antibiotic or Chemotherapy.
Bunty Gandhi: In cold, viral fever,I hv experienced that tribuvankirti ras with tulsi and adalah (ginger) juice reliefs quickly
Vd. Sachin Kadlag:अनुपान == अनु -- सहपश्चाद्वापीयतेइतिअनुपानम्।Anupaan includes both with (सह) or after. (पश्चाद्)And it's applicable for both food (आहार) andmedicine( भेषज).
Literally word " अनु " means " that which follows ".
But in word अनुपानit is to denote both meanings with food or medicine and after food or after medicine.
Dr. Amal JP: Anupana vishesha with Sapthasaram Kashayam
Sapthasaram Kashayam: katu rasa pradhana medicine. One of the important kashaya used for various sthri rogas. It has mainly action on koshta/koshtangas. Useful for vividha koshta/koshtanga vedhana like reproductive tract pain, epigastric pain, colicky pain etc and even for back pain. It's anupana includes guda/lavana/hinghu/ghritha.
Anupana vishesha are: guda for malastambha/spastic pain, guda and hinghu can be select if there is malabandha and udara sula, if there is a slight pittanubandha we can select ghritha. Ghritha can be select for dyspepsia also. If there is Agnimandhya aruci and malabandha use sindhava. Pippali can be selected if there is Agnimandhya and sula/gall bladder stone. If we take hinghu as anupana it will increase the srothosodhana, dipana, and sula prasamana properties of the yoga. For PCOD, dysmenorrhoea, gulma, vimargga vayu in koshta - better to take with hingu/highuvachadi choorna etc.
