Treat Arthritis with Ayurveda

Arthritis, or Santhi Gata Vata in Ayurveda, is the inflammation of joints and their related structures, or rather the localization of Vata entity in the joints (Sandhi). This occurs as a result of diminished digestive fire (Agni) culminating in accumulation of metabolic toxins(Ama). Arthritis or degenerative joint disease are terms used to describe the loss of cartilage in the affected joints.

The root cause responsible for Arthritis is evaluated after a thorough analysis of your diet, individual constitution, lifestyle, work pattern and genetic predisposition. Further the most suitable ayurveda arthritis treatment protocol specific to you as per your disease tree is figured out, considering the extent of disease progression,risk factors ,your individual constitution ( Prakriti) and the disease prognosis. This approach bridges the gap between the patient’s individualistic factors and the standard treatment protocols thereby making the therapy absolutely effective.

Arthritis treatment: The Ayurveda approach
Arthritis treatment begins by boosting the digestive fire and eliminating the vitiated Dosha from its area of aggravation.The Ayurveda arthritis treatment begins with usage of digestives and carminatives to optimise the digestive fire and eliminate the upshot of weak digestion. Further suitable methods of Oleation therapy and fomentation therapies are initialised to loosen the vitiated entities. Later the malfunctioning entity is expelled from the body using Panchakarma or detox therapies that function at grass-root level.The Panchakarma treatment ranges from Abhyanga, Sirodhara, Pizhichil to different forms of Kizhi and Basti. The whole process of healing is accelerated by using appropriate herbal medicines and herbo- mineral combinations which are custom tailored. Ayurveda also successfully minimises the likelihood of serious health problems in the future developing from the untreated underlying cause since it concentrates on the root-cause of the ailment. When the condition is particularly chronic or severe, Ayurveda treatment for Arthritis can greatly reduce its debilitating effects or help prevent it from getting any worse.
