Uttar Basti According to Ayurveda

It is always difficult to describe and understand something very large and covering several things. It is true with Ayurvedic principles that Ayurveda covers all the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of human life, and hence, description becomes more abstract. Artavavaha Srotas is also the same. It covers the whole female reproductive tract and encompasses it as a structural and functional unit from the hypothalamus to the uterus. It represents not only the hormones related to reproduction at the physiological level, but also covers all the structures related to female reproductive organs at the anatomical level. Fallopian tube More Detailss are very important structures of the Artavavaha Srotas, as they carry Bija Rupi Artava. Artava is also termed as Raja at various places in the classics. Thus, fallopian tubes can be termed as Artava Bija Vaha Srotas to prevent any ambiguity and controversy. Tubal blockage is responsible for 25 − 35% of female infertility. [1] It is one of the most notorious factors of female infertility and very difficult to manage. Claims have been made with regard to the effect of intrauterine Uttar Basti (IUUB) on tubal blockage. However, no database evidence of research study is available. Hence, this study was carried out as a very preliminary, but sincere step on the path of infertility management through Ayurveda. The aims and objectives of the study include: (i) Evaluation of the efficacy of Kumari Taila Uttar Basti in tubal blockage and (ii) a study of the complications, if any, during and after the course of treatment.
