Abstract

Nowadays erroneous dietary habits, lifestyle and environment have led to various autoimmune disorders i.e amavishajanya vikaras and ‘Amavata’ is one among them. Treating or managing Amavata /Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a challenge for both modern & Ayurvedic physicians. So, this single group observational study was conducted by administering nityavirechana & jambeera pinda sweda in thirty patients of Amavata/RA. Therapeutic effect was assessed by using subjective &objective criteria which were graded and analysed statistically using paired t test. The response by the treatment was statistically significant with major & moderate improvement in 6 & 20 patients respectively. So, nityavirechana & jambeera pinda sweda can be effectively adopted in the treatment of Amavata /RA.
