Tankana Bhasma

Tankana Bhasma, also known as Borax or Suhaga in Ayurvedic medicine, is a mineral-based preparation used for various therapeutic purposes. It is commonly used in Ayurveda to treat digestive disorders, skin conditions, and as an ingredient in some traditional remedies. The main ingredient in Tankana Bhasma is Borax (Sodium Borate Decahydrate), but it undergoes a specific purification and preparation process before use in Ayurvedic medicine.

Here is a simplified overview of the process for preparing Tankana Bhasma:

1. Purification of Borax: The Borax is purified by heating it repeatedly to remove any impurities and to render it safe for medicinal use.

2. Calcination: The purified Borax is then subjected to a calcination process. In this step, it is heated at high temperatures to convert it into its oxide form.

3. Repeated Grinding: The oxide form of Borax is then ground into a fine powder. This grinding process is typically repeated several times to achieve a fine and smooth texture.

4. Mixing with Ayurvedic Herbs: In some cases, the Borax powder may be mixed with specific Ayurvedic herbs or other ingredients to enhance its therapeutic properties for specific conditions.

It’s important to note that the preparation of Tankana Bhasma should be done by trained Ayurvedic practitioners, as the process involves precise techniques and safety measures to ensure the final product is safe for medicinal use.

The use of Tankana Bhasma should also be under the guidance and supervision of a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, as its dosage and application can vary based on the individual’s health condition and the specific purpose of its use. Additionally, its use should be approached with caution, as excessive or improper use can have adverse effects. Always consult a healthcare professional trained in Ayurveda before using any Ayurvedic medication or remedy.
