Introduction: Vatarakta is one of the main diseases in the present era characterized by severe pain, tenderness, inflammation and burning sensation in the affected joints. It is a tridoshaja vyadhi, with vata pradhanyata and rakta as main dushya. Sedentary lifestyle is one of the etiological factors of Vatarakta. The aetiology and symptomatology of Gout is very much similar to that of Vatarakta. Gout is a pathological reaction of joint or periarticular tissues which results from deposition of monosodium urate, monohydrate crystals in joints and tissues. Material and Methods: In Ayurvedic classics, although we find plenty of dravyas for joint disorders, the area of joint diseases management still remains to be elusive. Hence the present clinical study aims to evaluate the efficacy of “bodhivriksha kashaya with madhu” in the management of Vatarakta (Gouty arthritis). In the present study, 60 patients fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of Vatarakta were selected. 30 patients were under placebo therapy along with pathya mentioned in vatarakta whereas 30 patients were under interventional therapy along with pathya. Detailed profile which incorporated relevant data like symptomatology, physical signs and investigation reports were considered for assessment criteria. “Bodhivriksha kashaya with madhu” was administered to patients of either sex in the dosage of 50 ml with madhu BID before food for 12 weeks (3 months). Result: After the course of therapy for 12 weeks, symptomatic improvement was observed with statistically significant results (P < 0.001) along with feeling of general wellbeing but not followed by attainment of normal serum uric acid levels. Discussion: on the basis of demographic data it was observed that maximum patients were male, Muslims, alcoholic etc. due to their involvement in irregular food habits. From the present study it can be concluded that the combined effect of pathya and “bodhivriksha kashaya with madhu” showed promising results in the symptomatic relief of vatarakta.

Keywords: Vatarakta, bodhivriksha kashaya, madhu, pathya.
