Abstract

Inflammation in Ayurveda is known by different names in different contexts namely Shotha, Shopha, Svayatu, Utsedha and Samhata. Chronic inflammation is a cardinal sign of chronic degenerative disorders. Inflammation and oedema associated with it is duly recognised in Ayurveda as a pathological manifestation. While modern medicine considers inflammation as a symptom or rather as a healing response of the body in wounds. Ayurveda treats the concept of inflammation as symptom of a disease, an independent disease and complication of diseases. Degenerative diseases share a common pathological feature of inflammation. The disturbances in micro channel circulation in inflammation are due to Srotodushti (clogging of channels) by Aama (toxic waste of metabolism). The proper clinical approach to Vrana Shopha with Modern concept is an key role in management and preventing complication of Vrana Shopha.
