Role of Simhanada Guggulu and Amalakyadi Rasayana administered after Virechana in Management of Rheumatoid Arthritis (Amavata)
AbstractDallavi et al (2018) studied the effect of classical Virechana and reported that it provided major improvement to 30.7% patients and minor improvement to 46.3% patients of Amavata but remaining 23.0% patients remained unchanged. Then Dallavi et al (2018a) administered Simhanada Guggulu after Virechana and showed that this therapy gave complete remission to 16.7% cases, major improvement to 33.3% patients and minor improvement to 33.3% patients of rheumatoid arthritis but 16.7% of the patients remained unchanged. As in this study also some patients remained unchanged, so it was thought desirable to add Amalkyadi Rasayana to this therapy. Simhanada Guggulu and Amalkyadi Rasayana administered simultaneously after Virechana provided complete remission to 28.6%, major improvement to 42.8% patients and minor improvement to 28.6% patients while none of the patient remained unchanged. Thus it may be said that addition of Rasayana to Shodhana and Shamana therapy may significantly increase the cure rate in the patients of rheumatoid arthritis.
