Amavata is seen most commonly in the patients due to their changing dietetic habits, social structure, environment and mental stress and strain. It is one of the commonest diseases among the crippling disorders caused due to the impairment of Agni. '?a' , which is manifested due to the derangement of Agni, gets lodged in Kapha-Sthanas with the help of vitiated Vyana Vayu producing stiffness, swelling, tenderness in the joints, making the person lame. Derangement of Kapha Dosha especially Shleshaka Kapha in Amavata producing joint pains and swelling with tenderness can be co-related with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The management of this disease is merely insufficient in other systems of medicine and patients are continuously looking with a hope towards Ayurveda to overcome this challenge. So, in the present study total 39 patients were registered and were randomly divided into two groups. In group A- Nirgundi Ghana Vati, 2 Vati twice/day was given for 30 days, while in group B- Matra Basti once a day in the format of 3 days interval after every 7 days of total 21 days course followed by Nirgundi Ganavati for 30 days. The Nidana, signs & symptoms, course of the disease were observed carefully to get idea about the Samprapti of the disease. The effects of therapy in both groups were assessed by a specially prepared proforma. The result of the study shows that Matra Basti group provided better relief as compared to Shamana group in the management of the disease.
