Vātaśoṇita (वातशोणित) refers to “rheumatic conditions”, according to the Caraka Samhita (carakasaṃhitā).—Accordingly, “When the blood gets vitiated consequent upon trauma or the omission of seasonal purification, and the Vata gets provoked by astringent, pungent, bitter, scanty and dry articles of diet or by abstinence from food, or by constant riding on horses or camels or in vehicles drawn by them or by aquatic games, swimming and jumping, by excessive way-faring in summer, by sexual indulgence and in suppression of the natural urges, the Vata gets increased. Getting obstructed in its course by the increased state of the blood, it vitiates the whole of the blood. This condition is known by various names, namely Vata-shonita [vātaśoṇita], Khuda, Vata-balasa and Adhya-vata”.
