Abhishek Bhattacharjee

Abstract


This study was under taken to evaluate the efficacy of shirodhārā done with tila taila and water in case of anIidrā (insomnia). In this study 40 patients of insomnia were treated in two groups; one group was given shirodhārā with tilataila while the patients of second group were given shirodhārā with water for 14 days. The results assessed on the basis of standard methods of scoring specified for insomnia such as Athens Insomnia Scale and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index showed that shirodhārā in both the groups provided significant relief in insomnia but shirodhārā using tilataila was found more effective than done with water in treating insomnia.

Key words: anidrā, insomnia, tila taila shirodhārā, jala shirodhārā
