Arthritis Natural Treatment by Dr John Anne
In Ayurveda, we can compare Arthritis to Vathavyadhi. Vatha means Vayu. Vatha vyadhi is two types. They are Vatha eva vyadhi and vathad vyadhi.
Vatha eva vyadhi; vaayu itself gives rise to different types of pains when aggravated, the ailment is vatha eva vyadhi.
Vathad vyadhi; other doshas and dooshyas are vitiated by Vaayu to produce diseases in the entire body or parts is called Vaathad disease.
Vitiation of vaayu in joints causes oedema of the joints, pain while movements like extension and contraction of joints.
Symptoms and Signs (Roopam)
Joint stiffness, pain in bones and joints, contraction of body Parts, spasticity of hands, backside of body (prishtam),and head, Atrophy of upper and lower limbs, hunch back, sleeplessness, Twitching sensation, numbness in the body, splitting pain, pricking, pain, throbbing pain, piercing pain, head ache, stiffness of chest region and neck, oedema over joints, immobility, painful movements, Loss of foetus, semen and ovum and similar other symptoms.
Due to the intake of more cold ,dry and very less or more light foods or not taking proper food; excess sexual intercourse, not sleeping properly at night; excess fasting, swimming, heavy excercises, hard works, excess elimination of doshas and dhathoos, Loss of dhathoos like over bleeding, suppressing the natural urges, Improper therapeutic measures, excess fear, grief, worries, anger; overthinking; sleeping over uncomfortable beds, daytime sleeping, due to aama, traumas, injuries over marmas; excess riding over Elephants, camel, horses and falling from those animals; elimination of Dhathoos during the treatments like rektha-moksham etc aggravates vaayu.
Diseases caused by vaayu are innumerable. But principal Ailments caused by vaayu are eighty in number and are classified on the basis of their different locations.
* Snehanam - oleation therapy
* Swedanam- fomentation
* Sodhanam- elimination of vitiated dosha
* Samanam - rectification
Snehanam can do internally and externally. Internal is the intake of medicated or non medicated oils, ghees, majja (bone marrow) and vasa(muscle fat).
Natural Solution: Arthcare Oil - An Anti-inflammatory Herbal massage oil.
Arthcare is anti-inflammatory herbal oil, which not only gives a relief from joint pains but also strengthens the bone tissues, the skeletal and the neuromuscular systems, giving comfortable movements of joints and muscles.
External snehanam is abhyangam, kayasekam etc.
After snehanam, swedana therapy have to give. Swedanam is like naadee swedam, kaaya sekam with warm oil or medicine, pinda swedams like pathra potala swedam, choorna pinda swedam, etc we can give to the patient.
In oorusthambham (spasticity of thighs); a disease in vaatha vyaadhi, we should not give snehanam and swedanam just like in another vaatha vyaadhi. Here kapha is aggravated and associated with medas (fat).
In sodhanam purgation we can give.
If the patient is durbalan (weak), instead of purgation we can give vasthi chikilsa with ghee, with paachana deepana ingredients.
Some of the medicines:
* Nirgundi thailam
