Management of Amavata - A Single Case Study

Dr. Nikita Mishra

Abstract: This article delves into the concept of Aamavata, a condition in Ayurveda characterized by the interplay of Aama and Vata as the primary pathogenic factors. Positioned as a malady within the Madhyam Rogamarg, Aamavata exhibits cardinal symptoms in Asthi and Sandhi, giving rise to complications such as Sandhishool, Sandhisotha, and Sandhigraha. The clinical presentation resonates with contemporary interpretations of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Through a detailed case study involving a 38 - year - old female patient experiencing joint pain, morning stiffness, swelling in hand and wrist joints, and intermittent low - grade fever. Guided by the principles elucidated in Acharya Chakradatta's Chikitsa Siddhanta for Aamavata management, the treatment encompasses Langhana, Deepana - Pachana, Swedana, medications with Tikta, Katu Rasa, and Deepana properties, along with Snehan Swedan, and Vasti. These therapeutic modalities aim at Amapachana, Vatashamana, and Strotoshodhana. The presented case illustrates the successful management of Aamavata, showcasing significant symptom improvement without observed complications or side effects. The therapy effectively mitigates the manifestations of Aamavata.
