Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF GAMBHIR VATARAKTA WITH SHAMAN CHIKITSA: A CASE STUDY

*Vd. Priya Ashokrao Thakare, Dr. Ashok Kumar Sinha and Dr. Shrawan Kumar Sahu

ABSTRACT

Life style disorder is the burning issue today for medical science. Vatarakta is one of them caused by vitiation of Vata and Rakta where Sangatmak srotodushti (Obstructive pathology) is there. Though not fatal but Vatarakta is a very painful condition with rapidly increasing prevalence. High altitude is also found one of the predisposing factors for this disease as the increase in Uric Acid levels appears to be caused by increased urate generation secondary to systemic hypoxia.[1] In Sikkim also it was observed that, the beauty of the State situated at such a high altitude has to pay its cost in the form of such diseases. This case study is about a male patient of 28 years who approached at OPD of Regional Ayurveda Research Institute, Gangtok, Sikkim. He approached with chief complaints of Severe pain in multiple joints like Metacarpo-phalangeal, Metatarso- phalangeal, shoulder, elbow, knee, wrist joint; stiffness++++, tenderness+++, local temperature raised, fever, sleeplessness due to pain, blackish discoloration at swollen joints (on & off), dilation of vessels, pain, quivering and piercing pain complaint increases on coming in contact with cold. He was diagnosed as a case of Gambhir Vataj Vatarakta. In Classics Chikitsa(treatment) of Vatarakta includes Shaman (medicines only) and Shodhan chikitsa(includes panchakarma procedures) as Raktamokshan, Virechan, Basti. In this presenting case only Shaman chikitsa was given. Drugs indicated for Vatarakta were used i.e. Kaishore Guggulu, Pinda tail. Along with these medicines, Vatavidhwansa Ras and Dashmula Kashaya was also used as Acharya Charak directed to control excessively vitiated Vata first in Gambhir Vatarakta Chikitsa.[2] This patient is managed well with Shaman chikitsa and results obtained are discussed here.

Keywords: Vatarakta, Sandhishula, Kaishore Guggulu, Vatavidhvansan Ras.
