Amavata is a chronic immune-inflammatory systemic disorder mainly affecting synovial joints, caused due to formation of Ama and its association with vitiated Vata dosha and deposition in Shleshma sthana i.e., (joints). Clinical features of Amavata resembles with Rheumatoid Arthritis,it poses a challenge for the physician owing to its chronicity, morbidity and complications. The treasure of Ayurveda therapeutics has laid out detailed treatment line for Amavata. A 40 years old female patient reported to our hospital with Shoola and Stambha of metacarpophalangeal joints of both hands followed by Shoola in corresponding knee joints. This was succeeded by Shoola and mild Sotha on bilateral wrist, ankle and elbow joints. Blood investigations of the patient revealed that she was anemic with Hb-8.2g/dl, had elevated ESR-74 mm Hg, and reactive RA factor. Based on clinical examination and blood investigations, diagnosis of Amavata was made and Ayurvedic treatment protocol was advised with Baluka sweda (sudation) as external application for 21 days, Agnitundi vati before food for 7 days, Dashmoolarasnadi kashayam and Simhanad guggul after food for oral intake for 60 days.
