Abstract

Background: Urolithiasis is a most common clinical condition observed in clinical practice, affecting more than 10% of population in industrialized countries. Renal calculi cause symptoms severe pain in the renal angle, pain that radiates to lower abdomen, pain on urination, cloudy or foul-smelling urine, nausea etc. Many treatment modalities have been introduced in medical sciences, but it is very costly and even the recurrence of production of stone cannot be prevented. Aim: To evaluate the effect of Kulatha Kwatha in the management of Urolithiasis (Mutrashmari). Objectives: To find out cheap, easily available and cost effective Ahariya Dravya to treat Mutrashmari. Result & Discussion: Kulatha has property of Dipana, Mutrala, Bhedan, Lekhan, Shothahar. Renal calculi possess Tridoshaja mainly Kaphavataj Samprapti and the Kulatha has the property of Vatakaphahara, which breaks down the Samprapti of Mutrashmari. Conclusion: Our present findings suggest that Kulatha Kwatha markedly reduces pain, dysuria, and increased frequency of micturition, reduction of size and expulsion of calculus.
