What is the reason of arthritis? How to control this type of problems? please answer..

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Arthriis is auto immune disease acc. To ayurveda it is life style disorder. It is due to bad eating habits. It can control by diet and some ayurvedic medicine. If it is chronic then it is difficult to treat. If its sympotom start last for just 1-2 years then it can be under control. But it will take time.

Hi I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain inflammation 4) exercise and mannual therapy will help in painfree movement. In next consultation describe your problem in detail and do share related reports and prescription if you have. Best wishes.

I had an accident a few days back and there was an impact on left leg, but not much injury, but a blue spot and minor pain. Now I have an extended blue spot, but there is no pain in the region but slightly different skin texture. What can be the cause? Should I take any medicine or put some ointment? Should I be worried about it more? Please tell. Thanks.

Please get an X-ray done. Blue spot means blood clot below the skin. May be there's a minor bony injury which isn't detected. Otherwise it should go away in 10 days to 2 weeks time.

Sir I am suffering from dvt last 4 year, (right leg ) now I recover my inr 3. 2, but swelling of leg is not recover, please give me an advice

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
I think you have misunderstood the purpose of your treatment. The swelling is just a cosmetic problem. The treatment being given is to prevent any further progression or recurrence of your dvt. Dvt can be life threatening if the clot dislodges from the lung and reaches the lung vessels where it can block blood supply causing pulmonary embolism which is life threatening. That is the whole purpose of the treatment. The swelling is going to remain. It will not cause you any physical harm. You have to adjust to it.

Arthritis - How Age Old Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help?

Arthritis - How Age Old Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help?

The pain that is associated with arthritis has been well documented. As a matter of fact, it is widely known that arthritis drastically reduces the joy in which a person can go about his or her daily life. However, while the condition may not be reversed, it can be improved with the help of the ancient system of medicine that is Ayurveda.

The field of Ayurveda may put forth solutions to problems such as arthritis, and it is to be kept in mind that the potential of these solutions is to not only improve the problem, but to better the overall health of a person. This has been well proven and documented multiple times over.

The age-old remedies of Ayurveda

  1. When a person is affected by arthritis, he or she should make the time to undergo a body massage, which makes use of either mustard or sesame oil. Over the course of the massage, the joints whichare afflicted by arthritis can be given more time and focus.
  2. Ayurveda places a strong focus on the dietary intake of a person. For one who has an issue with arthritis, it is strongly recommended that juices from citrus fruits such as orange and lemonshould be consumed. The reason for this is that the vitamin C which is present in the citrus family of fruits goes a long way in improving the situation.
  3. A person should also fast if he or she is physically strong enough to perform this task. This is because the process of fasting does a lot to clean out the system and reduces the impurities a person may have.In order for the body to repair well, it should be given a sufficient chance to rest.
  4. Sleep which is disjointed or inadequate should be replaced by forming habits which are favourable in giving a person sound and fulfilling sleep. The beneficial effects will show in about a few weeks.
  5. When it comes to health, a lot of issues a person faces in general are due to consuming the wrong kinds of foods. It should not come as a surprise at all that this is also the case when it comes to the problem of arthritis. As a result, a person who is arthritic should stay away from foods which are fried, hot and spicy, as such foods have a great ability to cause trouble.
