*Dr. Shraddha Prashant Jadhav and Dr. Mayuri Sunil Patil

.

Abstract

Amavata was first described by Madhavkara in Madhav Nidan. Amavata is caused by impairment of Agni, formation of Ama and vitiation of Vata Dosha. It affects joints and has systemic involvement causing joint pain, swelling of joints, Angamarda (bodypain), Aruchi (anorexia), Guarava (heaviness), morning stiffness, etc. The clinical presentation of Amavata has resemblance with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic, autoimmune, progressive disorder which affects bilateral joints and has systemic clinical features. The management in Modern Science includes NSAIDS (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs), DMARDS (Disease Modifying Anti- Rheumatic Drugs), Glucocorticoids which leads to serious side effects in long term use. Ayurveda treats the disease in natural way without any side effects. Chakradatta described the Chikitsa Sutra of Amavata. It includes Langhana, Swedana, Dravya having Tikta – Katu rasa and Dipan action, Virechana, Snehapana, Anuvasana and Ksharbasti. With treatment of Dipan Pachan principle, Amavata can be treated. This helps in Amapachan, Strotoshodhan, Vatanuloman and helps to cure the disease. Here with the use of basic principle of Langhan, a case of Amavata is successfully treated and tried to present here.

Keywords: Amavata, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ama, Langhana, Amapachan, Vatanuloman, Awastha.
