could be the villain causing inflammation or swelling at joints with pain. Arthritis is a common disease affecting the joints
with severe pain as a result of bacterial activities. Bacteria like streptococcus, staphylococcus, pneumococcus or occasionally gynococcus stimulate the growth rate of rheumatoid arthritis. The toxins produced in the body due to bacterial infection are proliferated all over through the medium of air. Poor digestion allows toxins to get accumulated in the body and a weakened colon allows toxins to reach joints. The result is worsening pain which lasts for hours, days, months or years depending on the body condition of the person affected.
Proper digestion and elimination of excess ama present in the body are elementary steps taken to cure arthritis. Imbalance in the constituents of body (doshas) particularly vata (air) and accumulation of toxins (ama) in the joints arouse pain. Conventional medications like drugs, therapies or surgery methods could limit arthritis only to a limited extent and at the same time, prolonged usage of these medicines can be quite harmful to the body. In this case, it is best to opt for safe alternatives like traditional medicines. Ayurveda prevents the aggravation of vatas at joints by strengthening the colon and digestion mechanism with no harm. So effective cure is an assured benefit of holistic healing science - “Ayurveda”. In Ayurveda, a set of treatment methods which are broadly called Panchakarma is performed for healing.
- Deepana (appetizer which increases agni within the body for proper digestion)
- Snehana (oleation therapy/internal medication for removing excess internal fats or oil)
- Shamana (pacifying therapy)
- Virechana (therapeutic purgation)
