Abstract

Background:- Ghridrasi is one of the Vata Vyadhi. Acharya Charak has explains Vataj Ghridrasi and Vata-Kaphaj Ghridrasi. In Kalpana Chatushka, Charakacharya explained regarding the principles of Snehana & Swedana in Ghridrasi. Aim and Objectives: - This Comparative research was carried out with the aim to compare efficacy of Snigdha sweda (Nadi Sweda) and Ruksha Sweda (Valuka Pottali Sweda) on the Vata-kaphaj type of Gridhrasi. Materials and Method: - A total of 60 patients were selected randomly with the lottery method and divide into group A & group B were advised Snigdha swedan (Nadi Sweda) and Valuka Pottali Sweda respectively for 15 days. Results: - On comparing the mean Ruja, Group A (28.35%) is more effective than Group B (12.90%). On comparing the mean Gauravta, Group A (46.93%) is more effective than Group B (13.5%). On comparing the mean Tandra, Group A (39.58%) is more effective than Group B (15.15%). On comparing the mean Arochakta, Group A (44.44%) is more effective than Group B (17.5%). On comparing the mean of SLR Test, Group A (35.59%) is more effective than Group B (10.76%). Complete remission was not observed in this study. This may be due to a short duration of treatment. Conclusion: - On comparison between the two groups on the basis of statistical analysis is non-significant which indicates that effects of both sweda types are almost equal in Vata- Kaphaj Ghridrasi. But on the basis of relief per follow up, in every follow up Nadi Sweda gives more relief than valuka pottali sweda. Hence, Group A therapy is more effective than Group B therapy.

Keywords: Ghridrasi, Snigdha Sweda, Ruksha Sweda, Scietica, etc.
