Abstract

Ashmari is the third most common and unpleasant urinary tract condition. The Ashmari stone's shape is comparable to the urolithiasis symptoms. Traditional signs of Ashmari include discomfort and urine obstruction. Acharaya Sushruta described it as one of the eight Astamahagadas, or illnesses, that are the most difficult to treat. It is among the most prevalent diseases that the Mutravahasarotas experience. The urolithiasis recurrence rate is close to 50%, even with current treatment options. Since urolithiasis is thought to be spreading over the globe at an increasing rate. The idea of urolithiasis is examined in this article from an ayurvedic perspective in order to better management of disease.
