Abstract

Amavata is one of the most common disorders caused by the impairment of Agni, formation of Ama and vitiation of Vata Dosha. Amavata is produced mainly due to the vitiation of Vata along with the formation of Ama. The Ama combines with Vata Dosha and occupies Shleshmasthana (Asthisandhi) which results in “Amavata”. Amavata can be correlated with Rheu-matoid Arthritis due to similarities of clinical features. Acharya Chakradatta mentioned Chikitsa Siddhanta for management of Amavata, which consists of Langhana, Swedana, use of drugs having Tikta, Katu Rasa and Deepana property, Virechana, Snehapana and Basti. These modalities help in Amapachana, Vatashamana, Strotoshodhana. The prevalence of RA is ~0.8% of the population (range 0.3–2.1%); women are affected approximately three times more often than men. Aim & Objectives - Effect of Erandmooladi vasti along with other Ayurvedic formulations (Panchguna Tailam, Panchkola Phant, Simhnada Guggulu) in the management of Amavata. Material & Methods – The present case study is upon a 21 years old diagnosed case of Aamvata with complaints of pain in ankle joint & knee joint, mild fever and morning stiffness, at the Kayachikitsa OPD of Pt. K.L.S. Govt. Ayurvedic Hospital Bhopal. The patient was treated with Erandmooladi Basti along with Ayurvedic regimen (Panchguna Tail, Panchkola Phant & Sinhnada Guggulu). Duration of study is 30 Days. Assessment was done on the basis of symptomatic relief and biochemical and serological changes in laboratory test. Observation- Symptomatic relief and reduces the level of ESR and CRP after treatment. Conclusion - By using this Chikitsa Siddhanta a case of Amavata was successfully treated. Marked improvement was observed in signs and symptoms after treatment. No any complication was found during the treatment.
