Keywords:Vatarakta, Raktadushti,simhasyadi kvatha
Vatarakta is disease caused due to separate vitiation of vata & rakta. Gati of aggravated vata is obstructed in
its passage by dushit rakta (Impure blood) which ultimately generates Vatarakta. Etiological factors of
Vatarakta, are responsible for vataprakop and raktadushti & also for its signs & symptoms. Simhasyadi kwath
is combination of Raktaprasadak & Raktashodhak (Blood purifiers) and also vatashamak, vatanulomalk
(Removes aggravated vata from body) dravyas. This decoction helps in vatarakta to remove raktadushti
(impurities in blood), srotovibandh (Blokages in srotas) and also causes vatashaman. Simhasyadi kvatha
relieves symptoms by raktashodhan, raktaprasadan and vatashaman. vasa removes toxins, stickiness of rakta,
increases circulation, does raktaprasadan & shodhan. Hingu does shodhan & shaman of strotolipta kleda
(Stickiness in srotas). Laghupanchamula are vata-pitta shamak when combined, hence responsible for
vatashaman & raktagata pitta shaman. Erandamul is Vrishya and vatahara, hence does vatashaman. Erand
tail, also primarily vatanashak and also virechan (laxative) i.e. raktagata pittashodhak. Amruta is best rasayan
(rejuvenation). It acts as raktashodhan & raktaprasadan by tikta, kashay rasa. Saindhava is srotovivarankar
(Cleaning of srotas) & anuloman by lavan rasa, & prasadak by tikta rasa & sheeta virya. simhasyadi kvatha is
effective in vatarakta.
