Are You Suffering From Rheumatoid Arthritis? Do's And Don'ts For It!

Are You Suffering From Rheumatoid Arthritis? Do's And Don'ts For It!

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'ts: In 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.

I am just 19 and suffer from hair loss problem, there is also some pimple marks on my face.what to do
1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body. For pimples - use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash once in a day. Use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems.

I have the problem of graying of hair

So what about you to the related problem.
Hello. We can't make the grey hair turn black, but of course, prevent further greying! The causes of premature greying of hair are several. Here we have listed out a few common causes. Heredity is a major reason for hair greying Excessive use of tobacco and smoking Chronic emotional stress or psychological worries Lack of nutrients such as vitamins, iron, copper and iodine in the diet Medical conditions such as anemia, hypothyroidism, tuberous sclerosis or neurofibromatosis Home Remedies: 1. Add the curry leaves to the oil and boil it for 6 to 8 minutes, or till the leaves turn black. Remove from flame and let it cool. Strain the oil in a container and massage your scalp and hair with this oil 3 to 4 times per week before going to bed. Wash off with a mild herbal shampoo in the morning. 2. Turn the fenugreek seeds to a smooth powder and keep aside. Heat the oil and add the amla pieces to it, let it boil for 5 to 6 minutes, add the fenugreek powder to the oil, let it boil for another minute and remove from flame. Let it cool and strain the oil, apply on scalp and hair before going to bed. Wash off with a mild herbal shampoo in the morning. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine – Schwabe's Acid Phos. 200/ once daily and Weisbaden 200/ twice daily – all of them for 1 month. And a multivitamin - A to Z/ 1 cap. daily once for 1 month (as deficiency of zinc, copper and selenium can also cause premature greying). Use Schwabe's Arnica Shampoo and Hair Growth Oil. Revert me back.

I am having teeth problem is. When drink hot or cold liquid I get pain in upper jaw teeth M .K laxmi.
It is because of the teeth sensitivity... because the cementum in your tooth has become deficient.. and the nerves have become open... You have to take treatment and no toothpaste can cure it... so don't fall into the traps of the advertisement and take proper treatment.... As a home remedy you can massage your gums with turmeric and a little salt... And you can also start homoeopathic treatment...

Hello lybrate-user, occurence of a mouth ulcers can be due to hundreds of reasons. Do you know, mouth ulcers can be due to stress. A very little change in your food habits can cause ulcers. Everyone is the only good physician for one's own body. You have to watch you and you have to find the cause. Once the underlying cause is removed you can be free from ulcers. For now the solution may be taking B-complex supplements for a minimum period of 7 days. Rinsing your mouth with a prescribed oral rinse and topical application of some gum paint.

If it is eczema then you need to treat it and not remove it surgically. It is sometime very stubborn. Try homeopathy where we treat holistically and not suppress the symptoms.

Hi. It may be due to a urinary tract infection or due to early diabetes. I would recommend that you get a blood sugar analysis and a urine routine and microscopy to find out the cause for frequent urination.

Hello Congratulations! You are towards a period when you are considered wise! So why not act wisely towards your health goals. Fad diets bring a bounce back effect and are not very successful in loosing weight. Try to small frequent meals 5-6 times a day. Exercise regularly 5-6 times a week minimum 45 mins a day. Include more of high fiber foods like salads, sprouts,whole grains, green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water 4-5 litres a day. Correct Nutritional Deficiencies if any like Calcium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 deficiency. Eat right on right time & get enough sleep.
