Arthritis(Joint Pain) ? Ayurvedic View

Arthritis(Joint Pain) ? Ayurvedic View
According to ayurveda there are three doshas- vata, pitta, kapha. When these are in a balanced state we are healthy. Any imbalance in these three doshas leads to diseases in the body.

Vata resides in the colon and colon is therefore primarily responsible for all the vata disorders.

Vata imbalance in the skeletal system (asthi dhatu) causes osteoarthritis.
Vata imbalance with toxins (ama) causes rheumatoid arthritis.
Vata imbalance in blood (rakta dhatu) entering into bony tissue causes gout.

Massage with sesame oil to reduce the vata.

Digestion must be improved so that no further ama is produced. Fasting is very beneficial for digesting the ama. Duration of fasting depends upon the strength of the person, place and season.

Diet-
Consume the foods which are easily digestible and do not make wind or gas.
Vegetable juices and juice of carrot, beetroot and cucumber mixed together is also beneficial.
Green salad, fruits like apples, oranges, grapes and papaya can be taken.
Use of cumin, coriander, ginger, asfoetida, garlic, fennel and turmeric is also helpful.

Dont's-
Avoid eating hot, spicy and fried foods, sweets, wind forming foods like cabbage, cauliflower, spinach and potatoes should be prohibited.
Avoid taking too much tea, coffee, alcohol, white sugar, yogurt, chocolate and cocoa, excessive smoking.
Sleeping during day time, staying up late in the night and mental tensions like worry, anxiety, fear, stress and grief etc, should be given up.

How can a person with arthritis cope with it? How to get rid of rheumatoid arthritis. Please help.

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine
Rheumatologist, Mumbai
Ra is one of the most treatable arthritis currently and you should consult a rheumatologist if possible in person who are specialised at treating diseases like ra. The therapy of ra has advanced if you continue to get substandard treatment all your joints will get destroyed and you won't be able to reverse that. Also ra is a disease which can affect multiple systems and potentially life threatening. Its a misconception that ayurvedic drugs in ra have no side effects. Following are issues with it 1) most so called ayurveda specialists give you powder which are unlabelled which basically can be steroids/allopathy, you can never tell the difference 2) ayurveda drugs contain gold and lead (for which maggi was banned) both of which can have serious side effects 3) gold tablet are still used in allopathy outside india but they are used as last resort, not as first drug unlike ayurved 4) allopathic rheumatologists, treat ra to an extent so that all symptoms go away, they try to give you medicines with monitoring and avoiding side effects 5) most ayurvedic specialists take allopathy when they have ra.

My orthopedic surgeon had advised me knee replacement due to oseio arthritis, tell me what can be the harmful effect of this surgery can be? how much time will be needed for rehabilition and what precaution will be required to be taken after this surgery.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Knee replacement for knee osteoarthritis is a very commonly done procedure but as like any other surgeries, it can have certain issues, most commonly there can be infection after surgery, pain, stiffness etc but if it is done at a good center and with good post operative rehabilitation, it usually does very well. Also rehabilitation depends upon whether one or both knees are getting replaced, for one usually 3-4 weeks and for both knees around 6-8 weeks of intensive physical therapy will be required. Precautions to be taken are to sit on a chair or with knees at approx 90 deg flexion to prevent eccentric loading of implant, not to sit cross legged, do proper physical therapy as advised by your treating doctor, to avoid any infections like uti etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. From your symptoms it seems like your wife developing osteo arthritis (oa) of knee. Try some home remedies for pain relief: -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport -use hot or cold packs. By increasing blood flow, hot compresses can ease pain and stiffness. Cold compresses reduce swelling. You may want to experiment with heat versus cold packs to see what works best for you. -stay active, physical activity is one of the best ways to improve your quality of life. Exercise boosts your energy. It can also strengthen your muscles and bones, and help keep your joints flexible. Try resistance training to build stronger muscles. - quads strengthening exercises are helpful oa knee. She needs to reduce her weight as she is 90 kg. Consult a physiotherapist for detail assessment to find out the diagnosis and for pain management.

I am a 52 years old women suffering from rheumatic arthritics by hereditary my left knee always paining any chance to recover this sick ?

DM - Rheumatology
Rheumatologist, Chennai
Left knee pain might be due to rheumatoid arthritis itself or secondary osteoarthritis. First check with your rheumatologist whether your disease activity is under control and whether folitrax is enough. X ray of knee has to be taken to see the severity of damage. After ascertaining the cause for your pain and gauging the severity then we have to decide on type of treatment. Please consult your rheumatologist for further guidance.

Mere ghutne(knee) mein dard rehta hai kya kru Doctor sahab?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Mere ghutne(knee) mein dard rehta hai kya kru Doctor sahab?
Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

When the knees touch each other it is called knock knees (medical term is valgus knees). Since it's a mechanical problem the only way of setting it right is by surgery. The type of surgery will depend on your age and the condition of the knee joint surface.

My age 30 year suffering from rheumatoid arthritis last 20 year. Still have pain and in all big joint still taking medicine. Auryadic. Can it was treatment is there.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Improper food habits and sedentary lifestyle can lead to impairment of digestive fire, formation of ama (toxin) and vitiation of Vata (air). When a person indulges in Vata-aggravating diet and lifestyle, then this aggravated Vata circulates ama in the channels of the body and deposits it in the joints, causing Amavata. Ayurvedic treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis starts with pacification of Vata and elimination of toxins from the body. Herbal medicines are administered to improve the digestive fire and prevent further formation of ama. Panchakarma massage therapies are quite useful in subsiding pain in Arthritic patients. Go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid or semi-solid diet for an entire day, depending on your strength. You can follow this with hot fomentation (application of moist heat). This can be done by soaking cloth in warm water and giving a compress over the affected parts or steam bath or taking a bath with lukewarm water. These are the best methods of digesting ama.
