Rheumatoid Arthritis

Vasudeva Ayurvedic Health Resort is one of the well-known ayurvedic centers in India that provides very effective traditional ayurvedic treatments for rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of arthritis that normally affects the wrists, finger joints, knees and toes. It is a disease that affects the person for a longer period and is characterized by swelling of the joints and the tissues around. It may also affect other organs and can occur at any age. Women are more prone to rheumatoid arthritis than men. The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not known.

According to ayurveda, rheumatoid arthritis is the result of increased ama in the body. Ayurvedic physicians advocate that a disease is caused due to the imbalance in the doshas, either in one or all of them. These are present in human body in certain proportions and any change in the equilibrium can cause diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis is an indication of aggravated vata and as a result, the patient experience pain in the body. Ayurvedic treatments for rheumatoid arthritis mainly aim at bringing the aggravated vata back to the state of equilibrium and in this manner to a healthy state of being.

Ayurvedic herbal medicines are found to be most effective in fighting rheumatoid arthritis. Ayurvedic massage with medicated oils is also recommended for relieving pain and improving the movement and function of the affected joints and tissues and also for stimulating blood circulation. They not only provide relief from the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, but also strengthen the body tissues and the neuromuscular systems. Excess of ama can be the result of poor digestion and a weakened colon (part of the large intestine between the caecum and the rectum; it extracts moisture from food residues before they are excreted). This can end up in the accumulation of undigested food and the building up of waste matter in the body and the weakened colon allows the toxins to reach the joints. So the excess ama is to be suppressed to treat rheumatoid arthritis.

Our experienced physicians examine the patient; have a clear understanding about the person’s lifestyle, food habits and his general physique. This helps to identify the right cause of rheumatoid arthritis in the person and then to implement the appropriate treatment therapy specially designed to alleviate the existing problems and to prevent its recurrence in future. The duration and the method of the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis depends on the severity of the disease in the person and the physical condition of the person, age and similar factors.
