What is Arthritis?

Arthritis Knee Pain

Arthritis is caused due to inflammation of one or more joints. It is a broad term used to describe various conditions that affect the joints.


Arthritis, like most pains, is a condition caused by accumulation of ama – an offshoot of improper digestion – and aggravation of Vatadosha. This ama circulates and deposits at regions and sites that are weaker. When it happens at the same time, as there is a vitiation of Vata, it results in Amavata, in today’s parlance called Arthritis, inhibiting mobility, joint function and comfort.

It may also affect many tissues and organs. It primarily affects the joints inflaming their lining (synovium), resulting in pain and swelling that eventually lead to deformity. AyurVAID has an exemplary track record of treating Rheumatoid Arthritis.
