Do's And Don'ts of Rheumatoid Arthritis!

Jiva Ayurveda Clinic
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Do's And Don'ts of Rheumatoid Arthritis!

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes the body's own system as foreign and produces an inflammatory reaction. The synovium which is the space between the bones and the joints and contains a lubricating fluid which allows easy movement of the joints.

Inflammation of this space leads to painful, swollen joints that can also turn red and become stiff over a period of time. The joint surfaces can gradually progresses to produce deformities (the swan-neck deformity of the hand for instance) and disability.

Because it is an autoimmune disorder, the exact etiology is not known but lifestyle, stress, cold weather are supposedly predisposing factors. That being the case, it is not surprising that Ayurveda has a variety of options, both in terms of do's and don't's to manage rheumatoid arthritis - both the severity of symptoms and further progression of the disease.

Do's: A well-planned diet will help by supporting optimal functioning of the immune system and nourish the affected joints.

  1. People diagnosed with RA should follow a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables. Drumsticks, bitter gourd, carrot, papaya, green leafy vegetables, cabbage, etc., reduce inflammation and hyperactivity of the immune system. The antioxidant properties in these neutralize the free radicals circulating in the body (responsible for increasing inflammation). This helps control the longstanding inflammation of the joints
  2. It is also advisable to eat them as whole fruits and not as juices. The fiber in the whole fruits helps digestion
  3. Sprinkle pepper powder over cooling food items like cucumber and radish
  4. Include garlic which is an excellent remedy for RA, can be mixed with buttermilk
  5. Whole grains such as wheat, brown rice, millet, barley are beneficial for RA, their high fiber content helps in proper digestion and promotes regular bowel movements
  6. Honey mixed with water
  7. Drink boiled milk to which dry ginger powder is added; this can replace tea and coffee
  8. Milk mixed with turmeric powder is also helpful in controlling inflammation
  9. Work at reducing weight

Don'tsIn addition to adding the above to your diet, there are some things to avoid, which can worsen symptoms of inflammation.

  1. Avoid overall unhealthy and irregular diet habits which affects the immune system and aggravates symptoms
  2. Avoid sleeping during daytime and staying awake at nights
  3. Avoid deep fried foods and fermented food items
  4. Given its autoimmune nature, it is better to avoid regular allergy-inducing foods like dairy products, soy, peanuts, processed foods, artificial additives, etc. These could trigger an enhanced allergic reaction.
  5. Avoid alcohol, tobacco
  6. Avoid tea and coffee and other caffeinated drinks

With simple daily food habit and lifestyle changes, the severity of RA can be managed effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Hello lybrate user I would like to suggest you do regular exercises of back and legs. Exercises should be gentle and smooth but according to physio advice. Whenever your back muscle becomes relax, pain-free & achieve good level of contraction (after fifteen days) then start some stretching and strengthening exs. Definitely exercise would be helpful to you.

Advice - lentils and soyabean for protein intake, and my advice eat Indian food avoid western food, drink plenty of water, eat local fruits and vegetables. Use ghee and mustard oil in place of refined oil or olive oil etc. All are temporary treatment as per provided information, for permanent cure we need detail history and investigations. Homeopathy is best, safe and effective. We treated every day 2-3 patients of this type of problem with no side effects, no worries our 94% success rates makes sure we're the complete package.

My uric acid test's result is 6.39. What should I do now. I have pain in my whole joint and I am only 21 years old.
Your Uric acid level is within normal range. It seems you have pain in all joints of body, this can be due to arthritis condtions like Rhematoid arthritis or Spondyloarthropathy etc. For diagnosis you need to undergo certain blood tests and also a detailed description of your illness is needed. Follow these tips to get relief. 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol for relief. 2. Engage in physical activities like walking or swimming once pain has decreased. 3. Take a healthy diet rich in calcium. 4. Can apply cold pack to painful areas. If problem is very severe and not controlled by simple measures, consult a pain specialist in your city.

I was diagnosed for Rheumatoid Factor and the resulted value is 2.0. What does it mean. I underwent MRI AND Dexa-Bone Spine and Femur study as well. Reports are still pending. In past also I underwent MRI and found having issues in L4 and L5. I am having severe nervous pain and swelling in hands and legs from last 14-15 years and sometimes the pain is unbearable I took numerous medication from various specialist across the Nation but still no cure. All other reports seems ok apart from R factor. I will update once MRI AND DEXA-Bone reports are out. FYI, most of the specialist prescribed either sleeping pills or steroid. Sure, that will ease pain but its not a cure. Kindly help. Thanks.

Rheumatoid factor value of 2 is negative. But if you have swelling and pain of hand joints then you need to meet a Rheumatologist specifically to define what type of arthritis it is. There are other tests that can help in making diagnosis. RF can be negative in 20% patients of RA. WHETHER YOU HAVE SWELLING OF JOINTS OR GENERALISED SWELLING NEEDS TO BE ASSESSED BY PHYSICAL EXAMINATION BY A RHEUMATOLOGIST.

This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help you to reduce pain and also it will reduce the swelling and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Necrosing the nerve tissue so that pain is not sensed. Bad effect is that disease keeps on growing but because pain is not felt, patient is oblivious. Sometimes it proves harmful as underlying cause grows more.
