Abstract


Abstract- Covid-19 has evolved itself into a pandemic, affecting a large population irrespective of their physical features, dietary patterns, psychological attributes etc., The sequencing of the clinical course is as follows Mild illness, Pneumonia, Severe pneumonia, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), Sepsis, Septic shock. This indicates the signs and symptoms of the disease are of wide range which include mild cough and cold up to severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), Sepsis, Septic shock, etc. So the choice of treatment also changes as per change in the stage of Disease condition. Hydroxy-chloroquine is one of the drugs that found to be effective against coronavirus in laboratory studies and In-vivo studies. In Ayurveda, Kunain (Cinchona officinalis) is one of the drug explained belongs to family Rubiceeae.Its chemical constituents are Quinine, Cinchonin, Quinidine, etc .Homoeopathic system & modern system of medicine works on the basis of symptoms of the patient, his individuality. Here we specify the efficacy of homoeopathic medicine & modern medicine Chininum Sulp, & Hydroxychloquine in reference of corona virus infection. Chininum sulph & Hydroxychloroquine has a particular type of symptomatology such as anxiety, thick, yellow, white tongue, salivation, bitter taste, general prostration, pulse weak, chilliness on the back, intense heat, fullness of head, face red with sneezing, symptoms return periodically or on alternate days, pneumonia, oedema with liver and spleen affections. In today’s epidemic outburst circumstances, there is a need of Ayurveda, Modern Science and Homoeoapthy to come together to cure COVID-19.The present study determines the efficacy of Cinchona plant bark’s Kwatha (Decoction) and Chininum Sulphuricum (Sulphate of Quinine) along with Hydoxychloroquine (HCQ) as efficient medicinal approach. Key words- COVID-19, Hydoxychloroquine (HCQ), Modern Science, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Community Health Management, Integrative research, chemical composition, Care of peoples. pathogenesis; preparedness; emergency; pandemic Introduction: In today’s epidemic outburst circumstances, there is a need of Modern Science, Ayurveda and Homeopathy to come together to cure COVID-19. There are many approaches of these three medical era which can be used together to find out the way for fighting against COVID-19. Hydoxychloroquine (HCQ) is a medicine which has already demonstrated antiviral activity against severe acute respiratory syndrome. Such reports make strong hypothesis of its use against COVID-19. Moreover Modern Science, Ayurveda and Homeopathy suggested same chemical composition of Hydoxychloroquine (HCQ) which strongly recommends the possibility of use of it for treatment of COVID-19 patients (Bellavite et al 2017) AYUSH medicines respectively; the Homoeopathic Medicine ''Chininum Sulphuricum'' (Sulphate of Quinine) and Ayurvedic Medicine is ’’Cinchona Bark Kwatha (C.B.)’’ along with Hydroxychloroquine are medicines are formed from same resource and actions may be same against corona-virus, which can be used for clinical trial.our proposal to Ministry of AYUSH Government of India for a further clinical trial, it may or may not be approved but as per our University Team observations, in present scenario, for the Treatment of Corona Patients, AYUSH medicines should be used with the integrative approach as per guidelines of ICMR in selective COVID-19 Hospitals further, which may be helpful to our country in future medical emergencies. clinical trial of AYUSH medicines with Integrative Approach for Clinical Management of Novel Corona virus (COVID-19) at University Quarantine Centre or you may start the clinical trial at your own level in Government -COVID-19 Hospitals to combat Corona virus. The University initiative behind this project is to exhibit the uniqueness of the research work with proper justification done in which the reviewers were actively involved where Jv’n Dr.Panckaj Garg acted as the chief mentor and all other authors as mentors, under the aegis of “University Centre of Planning ,Integration & Correlation and Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science, Faculty of Ayurvedic Science & Faculty of Homoeopathic Science which acts for integration of research and planning being done at “University Thought Process” and to correlate the same with Indian literature. The work done in this project “University health advisory for COVID-19 management” is outcome of “University Thought Process” which is integrated with Medical invention and Medical science & technology. In spitefulness of incredible advances in modern science with integrative technology, technology and allopathic Hydoxychloroquine medicine a large we are unable to provide quality healthcare management system. Traditional medicine particularly cinchona officinalis plant herbal medicine considered as a major healthcare provider around the symptoms (Singh et al 2015). Indian traditional medicinal system like Ayurveda, has a very rich history of their effectiveness; modern research also acknowledged the importance of such medicine. Indian traditional medicine or medicinal plants such as cinchona officinalis are also considered with their chemical constituents as a vital source of drug (Vinaya et al 2017). Mainstreaming of such medicine like homeopathic ,Ayurvedic,modern is important for the people. Several steps have been taken in India to promote such medicine and to integrate them into clinical practice. Evidence based incorporation of Indian traditional medicine in clinical practice will help to provide quality healthcare to all (Vyas et al 2012). The antimalarials hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and chloroquine (CQ) have anxiety, thick, yellow, white tongue, salivation, bitter taste, general prostration, pulse weak, chilliness on the back, intense heat, fullness of head, face red with sneezing, symptoms return periodically or on alternate days, pneumonia, oedema with liver and spleen affections. In today’s epidemic outburst circumstances, there is a need of Ayurveda, Modern Science and Homoeoapthy to come together to cure COVID-19.The present study determines the efficacy of Cinchona plant bark’s Kwatha (Decoction) and Chininum Sulphuricum (Sulphate of Quinine) along with Hydoxychloroquine (HCQ) as efficient medicinal approach.
