Abstract

A CASE STUDY ON THE EFFICACY OF TILA KALKA UPANAHA AND YOGA BASTI IN THE MANAGEMENT OF VATARAKTA (GOUTY ARTHRITIS)

Dr. Megha Nautiyal*, Prof. (Dr.) Arun Gupta and Dr. Neha Yadav

Abstract

Modern lifestyles are a nidus for many metabolic diseases which hamper day-to-day activities and one such is Gouty Arthritis. It is a purine metabolic disorder characterized by hyperuricemia and deposition of monosodium urate crystals in joints with intense pain, swelling, and redness around joints. It can be associated with Vatarakta in Ayurveda due to the involvement of joints and intensity of pain. Vatarakta is “Vatapradhana Tridoshaja Vatavyadhi” and Rakta is main Dushya. Amongst Tridosha, Vata is predominant in Vatarakta. Ayurvedic management shows promising results in the management of Vatarakta. This case presents a male patient of 62 years of age, with the complaint of pain in the bilateral ankle joint, tenderness and swelling, pain in the greater toe of the right leg, stiffness in the toes, constipation with hyperuricemia. He was given a single sitting of Yoga Basti with 3 Niruha Basti of Yashtyahwadi Niruha Basti and 5 Anuvasana Basti of Shatavari ghrita along with Tila Kalka Upnaha. Gradually pain, swelling, tenderness in the joints, and serum uric acid level decrease. Basti is one of the greatest treatment modalities for diseases caused by vitiated Vata especially indicated in Vatarakta and Upanah helps in relieving pain and stiffness.

Keywords: Vatarakta, Gouty Arthritis, Yogabasti, Upanaha.
