Abstract

MAGICAL EFFECT OF AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT IN AMAVATA - A SINGLE CASE STUDY

Ansari Mohammed Adil*, Gautam Vinod Kumar, Mishra Pramod Kumar, Gupta Govind Prasad

ABSTRACT

In Ayurvedic classics, Ama is the product of metabolic defect. Due to poor strength of Agni (Jatharagni), Adya Dhatu remains undigested and this undigested and vitiated Rasa in Amashya is known as Ama. It has been considered an important factor for the pathogenesis of the most of the diseases. Amavisha is quite similar to Visha in properties. The vitiated Vata Dosha (Vyan Vata) directs Amavata, Ama Dosha enters into joints and affects the Shleshma Dhara kala (may be close to inflammation of the synovial tissue), resulting in joint effusion and swelling, restriction of movement, fatigue, morning stiffness, anorexia, general weakness, vague arthralgia, myalgia and paraesthesia of the extremities etc. It is generally compared with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis may occur at any age but has peak incidence in the 4th and 5th decade. The life time incidence of the disease in women (1.8%) is three times that in males (0.5%). There are various medicines available in modern science to reduce pain & inflammation of the patient of rheumatoid arthritis. Simultaneously prolonged use of allopathic medicines not only giving rise to many side effects, toxic symptoms and adverse reactions but also more serious complications like organic lesions etc. are caused by them. Hence the management of this disease is merely insufficient in other systems of medicine and patients are continuously looking with a hope towards Ayurveda to overcome this challenge. Here an effort was made to treat a 49 years old female, well diagnosed case of Rheumatoid Arthritis, through Ayurvedic principles. In this single case study Samshamana chikitsa (palliative therapy) along with Panchakarma procedure like Baluka Swedana and Kshara Basti was given. This case report showed that combined Ayurvedic modalities result in great improvement in overall condition of the patient.

Keywords: Ama, Aamavata, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Kshara Basti.
