Kampavata is the disease considered among 80 nanatmaja vata vikara by Charakacharya . As kampana (tremors) is the cardinal feature of Kampavata , so it can be correlate with Parkinson's disease in modern science. Shamanaoushadhis (palliative medicines) and various Panchakarma treatments are advocated by different Acharyas for Kampavata. A 62 years male referred to our hospital for the treatment of Kampana (tremors). After the thorough clinical examination patient was given medicines viz, Tab Aswagandha 500mg each three times daily after food, Tab Vallari 500 mg each three times daily after food,Pratimarsha nasya with Dhanwantaram taila (101) as nasal instillation (2-2drops) in each nostril once daily in the morning in empty stomach and Shiropichu (anointing with medicated oil over head) at night with Dhanwantaram taila for a period of 3 months. The effect of treatment was assessed by Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) at base line (before treatment), after one month, after two months and at the completion of the treatment (after 3 months). At the end of 3 months marked improvement showed in maximum signs and symptoms (28.57%).
