Katigatvata/katishool is the emerging problem arising due to the adaptation of modern life style. Many patients are suffering from this condition, having no suitable treatment available in the modern medicine except analgesics and surgery. However, in Ayurveda medicine there is better management described in texts for katigatvata. The clinical study was conducted in 30 patients of katigatvata treated with Ayurvedic Herbal medicine RasnadiGuggul and Katibasti with Dashamul oil. All the patients were divided into 3 groups of 10 patients each. Group A of 10 patients were advised RasnadiGuggul 500 mg twice a day for one month. Patients of Group B were administered katibasti with Dashmool oil for 21 days. While patients of Group C were recommended Tab RasnadiGuggul 500 mg twice a day for one month along with katibasti for 21 days, simultaneously. It was observed that patients of Katigatvata of Group C treated with herbal drug RasnadiGuggul and Katibasti showed maximum percentage of improvement as comparative to Group A and Group B. No side effects were noted in any of the patients during the trial period.
