Abstract

Respiratory disorders are one of the leading causes of morbidity worldwide. A detailed literature survey of the Bhava Prakasha Nighantu, Dhanvantari Nighantu, and Kaiyadeva Nighantu has been conducted to explore the probable mode of action based on Rasa Panchaka i.e., Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipaka and Karma of drugs of Swasahara Mahakashaya. Most of the drugs in the Swasahara Mahakashasya are Kashaya Tikta Rasa, Ushna, Laghu Guna and has Kapa-Vata Hara property and Swasa- Kasahara Karma also which will hamper the pathology of Swasaroga. Along with this, functions of the drugs mentioned in these classics in the light of modern perspectives are also discussed critically.
