CLINICAL EVALUATION OF RAJAYAPANA BASTI ADMINISTERED BY CLASSICAL PUTAKA METHOD AND DRIP METHOD IN PARKINSON’S DISEASE
AbstractParkinson’s disease (PD) has been described as Kampavata in Ayurveda. Ayurvedic texts have described treatment regimens to combat the condition. Aim: To determine the improvement in patients suffering from PD following Basti treatment. Materials & Methods: We gave Mustadi Rajayapana Basti treatment in patients willing to undergo Basti treatment by two methods- Classical Putaka method and Drip method. Results were analyzed using paired samples 't' test. Results: All patients tolerated the treatment well without any adverse events and reported improvement in symptoms. Although both methods show improvement, there was a statistically significant improvement in the tremors, rigidity, akinesia and bradykinesia, pill rolling movement, micrographia and glabellar tap. Conclusions: Over the short period of the present study, Basti therapy especially given by Drip method was found to show improvement in the condition of patients with PD.
