According to the Charaka's description of Vatavyadhi, when Vata affects the bones (Asthi) there is painful swelling of the joints and immobility. The Sushruta Samhita adds that along with the inflammation, immobility and pain, the joints in Vatavyadhi disorders eventually become deformed. As a distinct clinical entity in and of itself Amavata was only described in the Madhava Nidana.

It is a disease of Madhyama Rogamargas as it affects Sandhis and Hridaya Marma. Though, Ama and Vata are the predominant pathogenic factors, but the disease represents Tridoshic vitiation. Vata is the prime moreover and motivator in the human body, responsible for the initiation of every kind of activity. the large intestine. Here Vata allows for the affliction of Sandhis by Vata Dosha in association with Ama reflects the equal rate of both Dosha and Dushya in the causation of this disease.

Dadhimastu possesses properties such as Laghu (lightness) and Snigdha (unctuousness). It also exhibits Sheeta Veerya (cooling potency) and Vatanuloman Karma (balancing effect on Vata dosha). These properties of Dadhimastu contribute to the overall qualities of the drug combination. By combining these five drugs in equal parts, a formulation is prepared and administered to individuals seeking potential therapeutic benefits. The specific properties of each drug, when combined, have the potential to work synergistically and provide a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Further research and studies are necessary to fully understand and validate the effects of this drug combination.
