Vatarakta, Gout, Ashwath, Guduchi


Metabolic diseases are the most common problems nowadays because our diet & lifestyle both are distorted completely. It is one caused by a disruption of the normal metabolic pathway. Gout is a metabolic disorder in which abnormal metabolism of uric acid occurs, resulting in crystals of uric acid form in tissues of the body. Gout is characterized by an overload of uric acid in the body and recurring attacks of joint inflammation (arthritis). Gouty arthritis is usually an extremely painful attack with a rapid onset of joint inflammation. The resulting inflammation causes pain, heat, and redness of the joint. Both lifestyle changes and medications can decrease uric acid levels. The literature enlists formulation of Ashwath & Guduchi in the management of Vatarakta (Gout). The use of Ashwath & Guduchi as shaman Aushadhas is a perfect selection in the management of Vatarakta. I assessed the therapeutic effect of the treatment on specific subjective & objective parameters.
