Management of Vatarakta with Mustadi Yapan Basti: A Case Study
Keywords:Vatarakta, Gout, Vata dosha, Rakta dhatu, Mustadi Yapan Basti
Vatarakta is a disease mentioned in Ayurveda involving Vata Dosha imbalance affecting Rakta Dhatu, where the Vayu is exacerbated by long distance rides on animals such as elephants, camels, horses, and Rakta or blood is vitiated by the ingestion of Lavana, Amla, Katu, Kshara, etc. The Vata, whose passages are covered by Rakta further undergoes vitiation and further contaminates the Rakta or blood. Vayu's vitiated blood later burns the entire blood in the body and gravitates towards the limbs later. This vitiated Vata and Rakta is called Vatarakta. On the basis of etiopathology, Vatarakta may also be linked to Gout. A 52 years old female patient approached the OPD with the chief complaints of: Acute pain in all major and minor joint and Deformity on upper limb fingers in the last one year. The patient was given completely Ayurvedic medicines and Panchakarma therapies for 10 days, and Only Ayurvedic medicines on discharge were later moved and the findings were noticeably seen. Hence this study was taken to prove that Ayurvedic management with Mustadi Yapana Basti has remarkable results on Vatarakta (Gout). Observations and outcomes were drawn on the basis of measurement criteria. During analysis, discussion was carried out on the basis of whole findings. On the basis of the outcome, conclusions were taken.
