Urolithiasis: The process of forming stones in the kidney, bladder, and/or urethra (urinary tract).
Most renal calculi contain calcium, usually in the form of calcium oxalate (CaC2O4) and often mixed with calcium phosphate (CaPO4) 1,6. In most instances, no specific cause can be identified, although most patients have idiopathic hypercalciuria without hypercalcaemia. 
Pashanbhedi Kwath and Gokshuradi Guggul generally used in Urolithiasis treatment whereas varunadi kwath is also used in the same. Anyone having experience regarding this. Which better among these? Which is safe during the pregnancy period?
Which one is pharmacoeconomic and Easy to formulate in all the seasons?
Zinc is the second most abundant transition metal in organisms after iron and it is the only metal that appears in all enzyme classics. It is well known that zinc (Zn) possesses a variety of direct and indirect antiviral properties, which are realized through different mechanisms. Administration of Zn supplement has the potential to enhance antiviral immunity, both innate and humoral, and to restore depleted immune cell function or to improve normal immune cell function, in particular in immunocompromised or elderly patients.
Yashad (An ayurvedic preparation made from Zinc) Bhasma also boosts the immune system and may help in treating respiratory infections. Bhasma is herbomineral complexes, having improved stability, bioavailability, biocompatibility, targeted delivery, and therapeutic efficacy.
As per the pharmacoeconomic point, there is not much difference. Zinc tablets pack of 45 tabs have an average cost of rs.100 while 10gm of yashad bhasma has an average price is rs. 200 which gives 80 doses as used 125 mg/dose(standard adult dose). The dose of yashad bhasma can vary in patient to patient which makes it equals to the 90/100 doses and make no difference with respect to pharmacoeconomic with Zinc tablets.
So, Will, it be better to use Yashad bhasma in place of zinc tablets in covind-19?

When a research scholar go through his/her PhD, he first of all go through the Course work. What is the importance of it?
Starting from the selection of the Title of topic, which is the most important part of research?
We know research classify many segments
Selection of topic
Short review work
Selection of Title
Again Review work
Design of experimental study
Approval from the university/institute
Procurement of material
Identification and validation
Main practical work
Collection of Data
Relation and variation in data study through PCa etc.
Which one is the most important part of research among these.
Scinario of study changing fast. A lot of changes can be seen in last decade in the field of Pharmaceutical too. Challenges increases to fullfil the demand of the pharmaceutical market.
These things affects the education system and many updation happened in the curriculam too. Student prefer QBD (quality by design) or DOE(Design of experiments) to design their researchwork systematically and more scientifically. It helps to collect data in more appropriate and scientific form.
To assess the relation and variation in the data they again need to use several tools of artifical intelligence like PCA, ANNOVA, Docking etc.
Demand and updation of these increasing day by day. So Scholar or person need to learn many softwares to perform these tools.
Why not colleges/institution add these tools into the academic curriculam?
Are Pharma people really need these types of courses/tools?
Today, you can found number of ayurvedic proprietary Herbomineral Formulations in the market. Many of them in the Avaleha form. Many of them claim that they have added gold and silver. Many of them mention Gold bhasma(simple, Makardhwaj) and other bhasma without mention their Puta(e.g. 5 puti, 10 Puti or more)
Generally these formulations are in the market with name and packaging more or less similar to the Chaywanprash. How they can add any mineral drug or bhasma without mention their Puta. How they fix the dose. Did they check the quality parameter of the bhasma? Did they check any herbal and mineral drug interaction? Did they check presence of free metal and heavy metal? How these formulations exist in the market? HOW?
In simple word we can define six sigma i.e. 0 defect. Practically which is not possible. As per the mathematic derivation we have found the value of 6 sigma is 99.996 which is almost equal to 100% quality almost 0 % defect but if we increase the no of quantity defects will increase. In 10 lakh pieces it will become 3.4 that means 3 to 4 defect pieces will produce in every 10 lakh. Generally 93 to 94 % quality product can be achieved in 4 sigma which generally followed by all the big manufacturer and 5 sigma gives approx 97 % good quality product. To achieve 999.996 i.e 6 sigma manufacturer need to do hard wark. It will become sophisticated, Complex process to achieve it and also increase the actual cost of the product. Question is why we concerned towards these complex process which affect on the cost of drug. Better to have other option or atleast pay attention on the increase cost of drug. How can we resolve this?
Bhasma is classical calcinated nano medicine. Mandoor is mentioned as one the main ingredient of Bhringraj Tailam. Many or practicinor use kashisha bhasma also in hair oil.

We should take regular in diet kushmand Avaleha, milk, goghrita and Coconut water when we preparing Rasa Kalpa.It is mention in the Ayurvedic classical texts.
