Commonly word Udara is used for abdomen and Vata for Vata Dosha. Here, the term Udara Vata is used for Prakupita Vata in Udara. Means Udara Vata term is used for flatulence predominant condition. However, Udavarta terminology is very wide, hence it should not be used for the flatulence like common presentation. Hence Udara Vata has been studied under the broad term of Udavarta. Total 74 patients were registered in this study under two groups. In Group-A (treated group) 31 patients completed full course of treatment, were given Yavanikadi Vati 1g twice a day (2 tab b.d., Each tablet of 500mg) in Adhobhaktakala, with water for 1 month. In Group-B (control group), 30 patients have completed course. These patients were given Shankha Vati. Dose, Duration & Kala was same as in Group-A. Better therapeutic response has been observed in Udgara Bahulya (73.86%), Adhmana (74.32%), Shirah shoola (79.69%), Adhovata Sanga (62.26%) with highly significant relief in Group-A. Comparison of the therapies showed that overall better results observed in both groups but percentage improvement in Group A was better than Group B.
