Vinay Chaudhary, Shaizi Layeeq, Mayank Bhatkoti

Abstract


Parkinson’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.
