 The words Ama and Vata are combined to form the word Amavata. Disorders frequently result from the derangement of Agni, including Jatharagni, Dhatvagni, and Bhutagni, among others. causing the creation of Ama, which is then distributed throughout the body by the vitiated Vata and put in the Shleshmasthana (Amashaya, Asthisandhi, etc.), causing pain, stiffness, and swelling around the small and major joints and rendering a person lame. According to their similarity in scientific aspects, the scientific presentation of Amavata accurately mirrors the specific range of rheumatological conditions known as rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a symmetrical polyarthritis that is chronically inflammatory, detrimental, and deforming and is associated with systemic involvement. A few genetic and environmental factors affect the risk for RA. RA is an autoimmune disorder, which means that the immune system attacks healthy body tissue. However, the exact reason for this attack is not always known. Because of its chronicity, incurability, difficulties, and morbidity, amavata is one of the more challenging conditions for clinicians. NSAIDS and steroids are recommended in allopathy treatment; these provide symptomatic relief but also have broader effects. The Ayurvedic therapy not only eliminates this type of negative health effect, but it also provides a superior method by addressing Agni and Ama at their roots. The first precise description of Amavata as a disease is found in Madhav Nidan, so the current study offers with systemic assessment of Amavata with s. r. rheumatoid arthritis from all of the classics of Ayurveda and its management.
