What is Chikungunya Ayurvedic treatment


Chikungunya is the name of a condition in which there is a sudden onset of fever and severe joint pain. This is understood to be caused by a virus that is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Apart from mosquitoes, the virus circulates within a number of animals including monkeys, birds, cattle, and rodents.1

Ayurveda does not recognize Chikungunya as a separate entity. The symptoms can be co-related by some to masurika (Eruptive condition) and sannipataja jwara (Complicated fevers). Sannipataja (Complications of 3 doshas) occurs due to tridosha vriddhi & prakopa (increase and overflow of all 3 doshas) respectively. These lead to the luminal infection and tissue invasion for which cell injury takes pace and causes dhatu avarana (enwrapment of tissues) and dhatu kshaya (loss of tissues), with the causing of the diseases. Others correlate Chikungunya with Sandhijwara which literally means "fever of the joints". The symptoms of Sandhijwara and Chikungunya are very similar and hence Ayurveda treatment provides relief for the disease. 2
