Abstract

“A CLINICAL STUDY TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY OF GUGGULUVATI WITH OR WITHOUT ASHWATH TWAK KWATH IN CASES OF VATARAKT (GOUT)” -RESEARCH ARTICLE

*Dr. Punita Pandey

ABSTRACT

Joints related disorders are mostly described under Vatarakt and Amavat in Ayurvedic classics. Ayurvedic Acharyas assorted the condition of vatarakt by various terms such as Khud-Vata, Adhya- Vata, Vaat- Balas, Vata-Shonit and Vaat- Asrik. However most of the Acharyas followed the term Vatarakt. Dietary factors as well as mental-emotional composure, constitutional factors, and lifestyle; all are considered important for overt manifestation of this dreaded disease. Vitiation of vata and rakta and Avaran type of pathogenesis is crucial for its overt manifestation. If proper care is not taken at initial stage, disease progression continues and ultimately cripples a person for rest of his life. Clinical presentation of Vatarakt closely resembles Gout. Metatarsophalangeal joint of great toe is affected in most of the patients. In modern medicine till date there is no safe and effective treatment for Gout. To find a better treatment choice, Ayurevedic literature was explored and present clinical study was carried out. The outcome of this study is very encouraging and offers a hope for safe, cost effective herbal drug treatment for Gout (Vatarakt).

Keywords: Avaran, Vata and Rakt Vitiation, Herbal Drug.
