*Dr. Priya Pathak, Dr. Umesh Shukla, Dr. Rajika Gupta and Prof. T. C. Thakur

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is an age old science of health which lays emphasis on the health than to cure disease. The aim of Ayurveda is to provide a quality of life to the human being. Nowadays human beings are vulnerable to many disorders due to their altered lifestyle and food habits. Occurrence of Vatarakta is one of the outcomes of these modifications. Vatarakta is the disease which is caused by vitiation of Vata as well as Rakta. Aggravated Vata is blocked by vitiated Rakta, in turn leading to further aggravation of Vata. Thus aggravated Vata vitiates whole Rakta producing complex effects leading to the condition Vatarakta (Ruja spreads as Aakhu Visha. Due to its remittent and relapsing nature and complications there is no permanent cure of this disease, which is a challenge for 21st century and for future. In present era, people are coming closer to the nature and want alternate remedy. Hence Ayurveda, an ancient system of Indian Medicine will be the future medicinal science of the world. In Ayurvedic system Vatarakta can be safely managed using various Shodhana and Shamana procedures. Samshodhana Chikitsa of Vatarakta has been described in most of classics hence, Samshodhana Chikitsa (Varisara Dhauti/Shankhaprakshalana) is considered. Samshodhana Chikitsa is one of the prime purificatory procedures employed in treating a constellation of symptoms and stubborn disorders. By this mode of therapy vitiated Doshas are evacuated from the body and thus nidus necessary for disease formation is removed radically. Thus Shodhana in Ayurveda is considered important before prescribing Shamana drugs. The reason being, it cleanses the body for better absorption and action of Shamana drugs. In the present case male patient presented with typical symptoms of Vatarakta. He was treated with Varisara Dhauti/ Shankhaprakshalana at the interval of 7 days for 3 weeks and he recovered fully with no symptoms left.
