ABSTRACT

Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A.) is a chronic inflammatory unknown etiology marked by a symmetric, peripheral polyarthritis. It is most common form of chronic inflammatory and often results in joint damage and physical disability. Because it is a systemic disease, RA may result in a variety of extra articular manifestation including fatigue, subcutaneous nodules, lung involvement, pericarditis, peripheral neuropathy, vasculitis and hematologic abnormalities.[1] The clinical presentation of Amavata, as described by Yogaratnakar closely resembles with rheumatoid arthritis. Amavata is a disease of chronic joint pain and body pain accompanied by swelling of some or all of the joints along with some generalized symptoms. In later stage more joints are involved, and may have contractures. Amavata is derived from word “Ama” and “Vata”. The word Ama is the condition in which toxic effects are observed. The Ama along with Tridosha occupies Shleshmasthana (Asthisandhi) and results in painful disease named as “Amavata”. Because of contractures patients’ life is crippled. In spite of prolonged medication, remission is there.

Keywords: Shodhan, Shamana, Svedana, Vaitarana Basti, Amavata, Rheumatoid Arthritis.
