Arthritis Ayurvedic Treatment
Arthritis is a type of joint disorder and may present itself in different forms. It involves inflammation of one or multiple joints along with pain. The bone joints of hands, knuckles, wrist, fingers, jaw, foot, neck, spine, upper and lower back, in knee and hip are the affected areas.
Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteo arthritis are the most common types of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints while Osteo arthritis affects the cartilage near the bones.
Rheumatoid arthritis or Amavata is associated with excessive toxins and symptoms include presence of swelling, local rise of temperature, fever, heaviness and restricted movements. Best way of Ayurvedic treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is given initially with dry heat, dry massage and internal medicines to correct digestion and improve mobility.
On the other hand, chronic arthritis without excess swelling, fever but restricted movements and pain indicates Osteo-arthritis or Sandhivata. Knees are the most affected area for Osteo-arthritis. This form is treated with oil massage and localised oil baths (Pizhichil).
After the correct assessment of level of toxins in the body, our doctor may advice detoxifying Panchakarma therapies such as Virechana (Purgation) and Vasti (medicated Enema) to expel the root cause out of the system followed by a course of internal palliative medicines to achieve sustained relief from the symptoms. Arthritic conditions are dealt with in Ayurveda under “Vathashonitham”.
The Ayurvedagram Natural treatment protocol consists of internal herbal medicines, external therapies, modulated diet, and life style patterns. Yoga postures and certain exercises help in pain relief. Diet for arthritis is customized and suggested based on the body constitution and the type of Arthritis. These are intended to reduce the inflammation as well as to support the body in the normal healing process of the affected joints and strengthening of supportive tissues of joints. The treatment also modulates and strengthens the immunity in addition to preventing the further inflammatory changes in the joints.
