The disease Vatarakta holds a special place in the Ayurvedic literature due to its high prevalence in the society. .

The allopathic treatment give rise to many side effects and adverse reactions. Ayurveda can provide a a good holistic treatment option. The
treatment described in Ayurveda not only focuses on drugs but also on the life style modification. Keeping all the points in mind, the disorder has been considered for the study to find an effective and safe cure for the disease.
