How the Concept of Modern Ayurveda Emerged. C. P. Khare. In 1988 V. C. Burman (now emeritus chairman of Dabur India) had a patch of dermatitis on his neck, which used to subside after medication, but would surface again after some time. I suggested his (Dabur’s) own medicine—Khadirarishta. He paused for a while, but agreed to try “his own medicine.” I met him after a month. The patch had disappeared forever. At this point he posed a big question: How will you justify the use of Khadirarishta in dermatitis? It contains 15 herbs. The curative properties seem to be in Khadira (Acacia catechu heartwood extract) and Devadaru (Cedrus deodara bark extract). But any physician will ask, why 15 herbs, why alcoholic extract, why not the extract of a single herb. During the last 50 years, I’ve had an opportunity to interact with a number of pioneers of classical Ayurvedic medicine. Most of them were concerned about the future of classical polyherbal formulations. The most popular classical tonic Dashmularishta contains 67 ingredients. Any scientist or practitioner of modern medicine will have doubt about the rational use of so many ingredients in one formulation; even studies presented by Ayurvedic institutes will be considered biased. Dr. Bhagwan Dash gave an example of Khadiradi Vati and its multiple classical formulae. It has as many as eight formulae. The number of ingredients varies from 5 to 37, and the percentage of Khadira varies from 15 to 92. In one formula, poisonous drugs like Bhallaataka (Semecarpus anacardum fruit) and Bakuchi (Psoralea corylifolia fruit) have also been added. This indicates that there was one Khadiradi Vati that was prescribed for dermatophytosis (Materia Medica of Ayurveda, based on Ayurveda Saukhyam). ...
