Abstract : Amavata is one among the most prevalent disease in the present era claiming the maximum loss of human power. Here is a case report of a patient suffering from amavata, where a systematic treatment protocol, purely based on the principles of ayurveda was adopted. A 62 year old female patient, presented at the O.P.D. of Amrita Ayurveda Hospital, on September 9, 2015. She complained of pain and swelling in all joints of her body. The pain was associated with morning stiffness which lasts more than half an hour. It used to increase on taking rest and also during cold climate. She had a poor appetite and tends to pass motion every time she takes food. She often used to feel feverish inside. She also complained of anxiety and sleep disturbances. The treatment principle of amavata includes langana, svedana, agni deepana, virechana, snehapana, anuvasana basti and kshara basti. She was admitted in the hospital for 20 days and was treated based on the same principles. She was given langhana chikitsa in the beginning which included valuka sveda, choorna pinda sveda and khsara basti followed by virechana with Gandharvahastha eranda thaila. Along with these treatments, internal medications and specific diet plans like pachana kashaya and sthoulyahara yavagu were also given to the patient. There was remarkable improvement in the patient after the treatment.
