Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis i.e. Aamvata is a musculoskeletal, chronic and autoimmune joint disorder affecting a large aged population. It is symmetrical, destructive and deforming disorder. The prevalence of RA is approximately 0.8 to 1.0 % in Europe and the Indian sub-continent with a female to male ratio of 3:1.[1] The highest prevalence in the world is in Pima Indians (5%). The onset of Aamvata is peak at the between 30 to 60 years of age. Aamvata word is derived from 2 words i.e. Aam and vata where, Aamvata is the condition where sthabdhata of the body parts occurs due to, Aam (various ailments in body which creates the toxic effect in the body) combined with vatadosha causes vitiation of vata dosha and occupies various shleshmasthana (musculoskeletal joints) and menifests the disease Aamvata. In modern Era, due to sedentary lifestyle (nishchalatwa), low digestive power (mandagni), exercise after having oily foods (snigdha aahar paschat vyayam). This are specific nidan which are explained by the madhavakara in 16th century A.D. The first line of treatment of Aamvata is langhan followed by pachana, virechan and basti supported by ruksha swedana. In modern medicine, the treatment of RA is DMARD (Disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug therapy), biological response modifier, NSAIDS and glucocorticoids but the response is unsatisfactory. So the present study deals with the classical treatment of Aamvata. KEYWORDS: Aamvata, Rheumatoid arthritis, Langhan, Ruksha waluka pottali sweda, Sunthi siddha jala.
