Stanyaśodhana (स्तन्यशोधन) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as “improving the quality of milk”, and originally composed by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna IV. The name is derived from the words stanya, translating to “breast milk”, and śodhana, translating to “refining” or “purification”. It is a technical term used throughout Āyurveda. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Pāṭhā (Stephania hernandifolia), Suradāru (Cedrus deodara), Musta (Cyperus rotandus) and Kirātatikta (Agathotes chirayata). The collection of herbs named Stanyaśodhana is one of the fifty Mahākaṣāya.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
