Abstract

In Ayurveda many metals and minerals have been in usage as medicine since many years. Metals and minerals are in the non-absorbable form which is later converted into absorbable, most effective and non-toxic form using the process of Bhasmikarana (Incineration). The changes in the physical and chemical properties of these drugs are due to the Samskara done through the process of Shodhana, Bhavana, maranaetc. Each and every drug has its own method of incineration as required for its medicinal use. Bhasmas are unique ayurvedic metallic or mineral preparations widely recommended for treatment of a variety of ailments. Animal derivatives such as horns, shells, feathers, metallic, non-metallic and herbal are normally administered as Bhasmas. ShuktiBhasma is the choice of drug having various therapeutic uses in day today practice. An attempt is made to prepare Shuktibhasmaas per the classics.
