Trivrit has been used as a purgative from time immemorial and is still used as such by native practitioners, alone, as well as in various combinations. In fact this medicine is the ordinary cathartic in use amongst natives, just as jalap is among Europeans. Its botanical name is Ipomcea Turpethum. Two varieties of trivrit are described by most Sanskrit writers, namely, sveta or white and krishna or black. The white variety is preferred for medicinal use as a moderate or mild cathartic. The black variety is said to be a powerful drastic and to cause vomiting, faintness and giddiness.
Dose of Trivrit in Medicine
The usual mode of administering it is as follows. About 2 scruples of the root are rubbed into a pulp with water and taken with the addition of rock salt and ginger or sugar and black pepper.
A compound powder called Naracha Churna is thus prepared. Take Trivrit root 8 tolas, long pepper 2 tolas, sugar 8 tolas; powder and mix. About a scruple of the powder is recommended to be taken before meals in constipation with hard faeces.
Tumburadya Churna: Take the fruits of Xanthoxylum hostile (tumburu), rock, vit and sonchal salts, ajwain, pachak root, yavakshara, chebulic myrobalan, asafoetida and baberang seeds, 1 part each, trivrit 3 parts; powder the ingredients and mix. Dose should be about a drachm with warm water, in painful dyspepsia with costiveness and flatulence.
In anasarca supposed to be caused by deranged bile, a decoction of trivrit, gulancha and the 3 myrobalans is recommended to be taken. Milk diet should be prescribed along with this medicine.
