Later onGaurang et al (2017) treated the patients of hypothyroisimwitha combination comprising of BhallatakaVati and Galaganda-haraVati and reported that it caused marked improvement in 71.4% patients and moderate improvement in 28.6% patients. The aim of the present study was to assess that if the Shamana drug is administered after Vamana Karma whether the quantum of relief to the patients of hypothyroidism can be increased. For this purpose the patients of hyperthyroidism were first given Vamana Karma and after the SamsarjanaKrama they were administered BhallatakaVati and GalangadaharaVati orally for onr month. The results of this study showed that it provided marked improvement to 85.7% patients and moderate improvement to 14.3% patients. Thus it was concluded that there was increase in the cure rate but it was not so much when considered the cost effectiveness of performing additional Vamana Karma.
