Abstract

ROLE OF GUDUCHI IN THE MANAGEMENT OF VATARAKTA W.S.R. TO GOUT

Dr. Arun Kumar Sharma*, Dr. Khushboo Bhardwaj and Dr. Sujata

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is the science of life which not only deals with the curative but also with the preventive aspect of health. Vatarakta is one of the main articular diseases characterized by severe pain, inflammation, and burning sensation in the affected joints. It is a Tridhoshaja vyadhi with Vata as pradhan dosha and Rakta as main dushya. The etiology and symptoms of Vatarakta are very much similar to that of Gout. Gout is the heterogeneous disorder that results in the deposition of uric acid salts and crystals in and around joints and soft tissues. Fast lifestyle disturbs Vata and vitiates Rakta at the same time, which gives birth to Vatarakta diseases. As pain is predominant symptom in this disorder, so day-today life gets disturbed. Vatarakta is also known as Khud -roga, Vatabalasa, Vatasra and Adhya-vata. Current available medicines are capable of providing relief in pain and some reduction of inflammation. But there is need to explore and find out an effective, cheap, easily available and well accepted single drug for this dreadful condition of the joints, which was historically known as “the disease of Kings or rich man‟s disease”. Guduchi (Trinospora cardifolia) alone can be given in the form of kwatha or Ghansatva or Swarasa. Guduchi can be very effective in Vatarakta due to its Rasayna (anti-oxidant), Vayahsthapan (anti-ageing), Vatahara, ushana-guna (hot in potency) and steroidal properties.

Keywords: Vatarakta, Gout, Guduchi, Dosha, Inflammation.
