Dengue fever is communicable disease caused by dengue virus called Aaegepti spread by mosquito, so there is no vaccine and it is particularly difficult to create vaccine because it is caused by different virus and no animal models available for testing. It is also called as ‘breakdown fever’ and ‘dandy fever’ [1-2]. Approximately 390 million people worldwide infected each year and the disease kills over 5000 Indians every year and is a seasonal threat particularly during monsoon. Symptoms will manifest in 3 phases febrile phase-high fever(104.F), muscle and joint pains, headache, measles like rashes, nausea, vomiting, bleeding from mucous membrane of mouth and nose, decreased platelets within 2-7 days, critical phase – blood in vomitus, dark colored stools, severe abdominal pain, restlessness which leads to serious complications and even death and recovery phase [3-4]. As it is caused by virus, so there is no specific medicine or antibiotic to treat it. For typical dengue fever, treatment is purely concerned with relief of symptoms.

In Ayurveda there are several yoga’s which overcome this disease, one such preparation is Balaguduchyadi kashaya – a anubhuta yoga found more effective, consists of bala, guduchi, yashti madhu, musta, chandana, trikatu etc. drugs are having tikta pradhana madhura rasa, sheeta teekshna guna and contains properties like jwaragna, tridoshahara, rasayana, hrudya, balya raktapittahara and proved to be having anti pyretic, analgesic, anti microbial, anti typhoid, immunomodulatory, muscle relaxant properties also.
