Uterine fibroids are the commonest benign tumours that arise from the myometrium of uterus. Its prevalence is highest between the age group of 35 – 45 years. The symptoms are rather related to number, size and location of the fibroid and commonly associated symptoms include dysmenorrhoea, menorrhagia, lower abdominal pain etc. In Ayurveda classics there is no direct correlation for uterine fibroids. Two diseases, granthi and arbuda are similar to that of tumour but specific descriptions of these diseases related to reproductive organ is not available. While going through the etiopathogenesis and symptomatology as per modern science, uterine fibroids can be considered as mamsavriddhijanya vikara and is correlated to mamsa granthi. An attempt was made here to find out the combined effect of Nimbadi kashayam and Kanchanara Guggulu in fibroids. The study was conducted in Govt Ayurveda College Hospital for women and children, Poojappura Thiruvananthapuram. Married women of age group 25 to 45 yrs. with fibroids were included for the study after confirming by USG. The treatment period was 90 days and two subsequent follow ups were taken, one immediately after the treatment period and other one 90 days post the treatment period. Statistical analysis of the result showed that the combination showed statistically significant effectiveness in reducing the size of fibroid with a P-value <0.01
