Abstract

Since ancient times, people have been interested in the colour of their skin and hair. A major contributing factor to low self-esteem, which frequently hinders societal adaption, is premature greying. And given that a large portion of the population is currently impacted—especially young men and women—this is a big issue. Premature greying of the hair is referred to in Ayurveda as Akalapalya. Premature ageing associated with Akala Pality is becoming more common, particularly in poor and tropical nations. In India, the WHO reports that the incidence is highest in the 20–30 age range. As indicated in the classics of Urdhvajatrugata Rogas and Palitya, Prapaundarikadi taila is used for Nasya and Krishna-tila is used for abhyantara sevana in this study. In this study, Krishna tila and Prapaundarikadi thaila Pratimarsha Nasya were administered orally to patients diagnosed with Akala Palitya. According to recent studies, using Krishna tila sevana and Prapaundarikadi taila nasya can prevent premature greying of hair.

Introduction

Hair is an important anatomical structure of body which plays both protective as well as cosmetic role. The age range of 20 to 30 years in India has a high incidence of it, according to the W.H.O.

Graying of hair according to age is common phenomenon but due to drastic changes in today’s lifestyle and environmental pollution lead to graying of hair and it has become burning issue, especially in young generation. In the study of Ayurveda palitya comes under the heading of Kshudraroga and shirogataroga.

Although the precise reason for early hair Graying is unknown, it has been linked to a number of autoimmune diseases, including vitiligo, pernicious anaemia, and premature ageing syndrome. Additionally, studies have shown the importance of environmental factors such ultraviolet radiation, climate, smoking, drugs, trace elements, and dietary deficiencies as well as those inherited from the family. The main aetiology of palitya is vitiation of dehoshma and ushnaguna of pitta circulates to romakoopa and causes paka of hair.

 Nasya karma is supposed to treat all diseases of the supraclavicular region because it is the entryway to the brain cavity and Propaundarikadi Taila is effective in management of Palitya as advised by Acharya Charaka.

It is effective for Akala Palitya .Only for external use, this oil is prescribed for Palitya and other head ailments. Graying hair is palitya. According to Ayurveda, it is a Vikar (disease) when the hair turns grey as a result of stress, rage, and grief. All body hair is impacted by palitya. According to the Vagbhata Samhita, Krishna Tila or black sesame seeds, are suggested for use in Ayurvedic medicine for therapeutic purposes and as a Rasayana medication. Therefore, an effort was made here to comprehend the role of Krishna Til as Rasayana in enhancing the state of health. Rich in calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus are black sesame seeds.

All of the Samhitas provide an explanation of the illness Palitya in a variety of contexts. Palitya, Sushruta, Kshudra Rogadhikara, and Vagbhata are all explained by Charaka in Urdhva Jatrugata Rogas, and Shirokapalagata Rogas, respectively.
