Ayurvedic Treatment for Arthritis - Is It The Best Line Of Treatment?

Ayurvedic Treatment for Arthritis - Is It The Best Line Of Treatment?

If you are looking for natural remedies for arthritis, you should opt for Ayurvedic treatment. Arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease causing damage to your joints and connective tissues. The knee gets commonly affected. There are three primary types of arthritis, which occur in your knees. Ayurveda is ideal for arthritis treatment, and there are several Ayurvedic remedies that you can opt for.

How Does Ayurveda Approach Arthritis?

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis is based on the understanding of the various doshas or humors of the body. According to Ayurveda, there are four main humors in the body and it is these that govern our health, wellness and our proneness to disease. Arthritis, as per Ayurveda, is a condition caused due to the aggravation of vata dosha (air). The body produces ama – a toxin that is released as a by product of improper digestion. When ama is produced, it circulates in the body and gets deposited at sites that have already weakened. So when the vata is already stirring up, ama finds the perfect place to build up. That is why you experience arthritis in fingers or knees. For most people, arthritis in the knee is more painful than in the fingers because knees are load bearing joints. If you have arthritis in your knees, you will have trouble moving and the range of motion in your joints will be severely restricted. You may have to depend on people or walking aids to make even the smallest of movements.

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis aims at balancing and stabilising the Vata component of your body. This is done by strengthening your alimentary canal and metabolic pathway. This makes sure that your circulatory channels do not get blocked by impurities, and are functioning properly. You need to drink a lot of water in order to detoxify your body. There are several Ayurvedic home remedies for arthritis treatment as well, which help in improving your motion range.

Treatment Tips:

  1. You should start your day with a big glass of lukewarm lemon water every day.

  2. You should opt for fenugreek which is an ideal natural inhibitor of ama and corrects your Vata dosha. This natural arthritis remedy can be taken in various ways. You can take these seeds in your food. You can also grind them, mix mustard oil to it, and apply the mixture to your joints. This provides warmth and relief to your joints.

  3. You can opt for an Ayurvedic hot oil massage of your joints. This is effective, especially during the winter. You can use castor oil, and sesame seed oil for massaging your arthritis affected joints. Do not apply pressure while massaging your joints as applying pressure goes against the principles of Ayurveda.

  4. It is recommended for you to meditate regularly for relieving stress and coping with anxiety. These factors are responsible for the development of ama in your body. Regular meditation makes your body relaxed and calm. You should practice yoga as it involves several breathing exercises which help in initiating you into meditation. Having effective control over your breath, your meditation will be more effective.

  5. It is important for you to sleep early and wake up early. The disruption of your sleep cycle causes aggravation of all your doshas and causes stress and fear. A healthy sleep cycle helps you in keeping away from obesity. This improves the health of your load bearing joints, as the chances of them getting extra load because of obesity are prevented.

If you are looking for Ayurvedic remedies for arthritis, it is important for you to consult an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner. He will be able to prescribe you Ayurvedic remedies which suit your symptoms and stage of arthritis. Certain food habits like taking too much ice cream, fast food, red meat etc. should be restricted to a certain extent to prevent the production of Ama( toxin) as by-product to prevent inflammation of joints. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

It may be due to slow peristalsis, Food allergies or minimal Intestinal obstruction due to some infection/infestation/Inflammation, You may send me more information about your problem for better diagnosis Until then you can take Homeopathic Treatment. If you have Faith in Homeopathy, You can use following Homeopathic Medicines: (1) Kalmegh Q (2) Chelidonium Q Avoid fat fried food, take small meals at short intervals, preferably early breakfast and light dinner. Performing Kapalbhati Pranayama and Bhastrika Pranayama with Neoli-Kriya in mornings after passing stools will certainly help you until it is cured.

PRP Therapy - How Can It Help With Sports Injuries?

PRP Therapy - How Can It Help With Sports Injuries?

Sports activities can lead to severe injuries, and the treatment administered differs, based on the severity of the injury. Muscle injuries are often healed using platelet-rich plasma. Called PRP in short, this therapy gained an immense popularity almost a decade back.

How does it work?

Blood is composed of cellular elements and plasma. PRP is the blood with concentrated platelets and is rich in bio-reactive proteins. This also contains factors that are vital to accelerating growth. PRP aids in faster tissue regeneration and repair. Bones, tendons, and ligaments are the connective tissues in the body, and they need to heal together, which is what this therapy promotes.

A regenerate therapy for faster healing

This therapy is performed by taking out a small amount of blood from the patient’s body. The platelet concentration is augmented by placing it in a centrifuge, and the growth factors are also promoted. Then this plasma is injected into the affected area. It is injected straight into the damaged area. This therapy suits all sorts of sports injuries, arthritis, inflammation, plantar fasciitis, knee ligament injuries, tennis elbow, patella tendinopathy, and Achilles tendinopathy. Joint pain that is caused by an acute injury, early partial tendon tears, and any chronic degenerative disease, too, can be cured with PRP.

Conditions that can be cured with PRP

When athletes are involved in sports activities, a few joints are constantly used. As a result, the tendons experience microscopic tear, and it takes a lot of time for these tendons to heal because the blood supply is not adequate here. When you get injected with the PRP, the nutrients and growth factors required are supplied and it helps in faster healing. Here are a few injuries that can benefit from PRP. It is often seen that celebrities suffering from the condition use this regenerative therapy.

  • Rotator Cuff injuries: Sports injuries can occur commonly in the shoulder joints, where lots of actions can take place. With the arm motion more repetitive in sports such as baseball or basketball, this condition can be seen repetitively. Accidents, too, can result in rotator cuff injuries. When the rotator cuffs suffer from a partial tear of tendons or inflammation, PRP injections can offer the solace. However, if rotator cuffs experience severe damage, then only surgery can be helpful.
  • Plantar Fasciitis: When the sports require a lot of footwork, an injury may result. Runners are often found suffering from a sports injury. People who stand on feet for long hours too can face this condition. This condition responds well to PRP injections. However, if not treated for long or left unattended, a surgery becomes the sole option for relief.
  • Tennis Elbow: The forearms are often used in sports like tennis. The tendons, due to continuous usage, can tear. The repetitive stress on these tendons can also lead to inflammation. Not only sports people but even cooks, painters, carpenters, and assembly line workers can find this a trouble. PRP injections offer the required growth factors to heal the tendons and help to get back to normal life faster.

With hordes of regenerative therapies available, consult a professional to choose the best for you. Also, your physician should be the right person to decide if it is time for a surgery.
