This study was carried out at Sahsniang PHC West Jaintia Hills District, Meghalaya in the Year 2015 and 2016. Result: The clinical trial of Jwaraghna kashaya along with antimalarial drugs in group A is observed to be more effective in reducing the clinical symptoms of malaria along with parasite clearance from the blood.  The symptoms of Headache, Nausea/Vomiting, Taste, Myalgia, Giddiness and Fatigue shows highly significant in group A as compared to significant in group B.  The symptoms of intermittent fever, rigor, profuse sweating and cough show equal significant result in both the groups.  The symptom of hepatomegaly and splenomegaly showed no significant results.  In all the symptoms except two, the P-Value is less than 0.05. Therefore; Jwaraghna kashaya is effective in the management of malaria as an adjuvant medicine. Statistical Analysis: The present drug Jwaraghna kashaya along with the statistical analysis and interference shows remarkable improvement in clinical signs and symptoms of Malaria along with parasite clearance in group A as compared to group B.
