ABSTRACT

Introduction: Amavata is a vata-kapha pradhana tridoshaja vyadhi and rasavaha strotojanya vikara which is originating due to ama. It is mainly characterized by shoola(pain), shotha(swelling), and sthabhdata (morning stiffness) in sandhi due to vikruta vata associated with ama. The disease amavata has similarity with Rheumatoid arthritis in clinical presentation. Methodology: To compare and evaluate the added efficacy of Shuntyadi ghrita and Ajamoda nirgundyadi yoga (an indigenous formulation) in the management of Amavata vis-a-vis Rheumatoid Arthritis. It was a comparative clinical study with pre and post-test design, with sample size of 60 subjects, 30 subjects in each group. Assessment parameters used in the present study were sandhishoola, sandhi shotha, sandhi sthabhdata and functional gradings. The data was collected on 0th day, 9th day (after bastikarma) and 30th day (after shamanoushadhi). Result: The overall assessment revealed that both the groups are equally effective. The comparision of results between the group is statistically insignificant, hence the hypothesis of difference in added efficacy between the group is disproved. Conclusion: In the present study, on comparing the overall effect, it was observed that both the groups are equally effective. Hence, Dwipanchamooladi basti followed by oral administration of Shuntyadi ghrita and Dwipanchamooladi basti followed by oral administration of Ajamoda nirgundyadi yoga has a better role to play in the management of Amavata.

Keywords: Amavata, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Shuntyadi ghrita, Ajamoda nirgundyadi yoga.
