Dear Lybrate User, *One teaspoon turmeric, ¼ teaspoon garlic, ¼ teaspoon ajowain, ½ teaspoon coriander seed powder, ½ teaspoon fenugreek with half glass of water twice a day. *Body massage with sesame or mustard oil helps to reduce vata, resulting in less pain. The joints affected by pain can be massaged for longer time. *Light exercise is useful but you must know your limits. As a general rule if any exercise, including walking, causes pain after one hour, you have crossed your limit. *Liberal intake of orange juice or sweet limejuice or vitamin C enhances the efficacy of any anti-rheumatic drug since vitamin C can reduce skeletal pain. *Guggul is a very helpful herb for curing arthritis. *Eat right:Food rich in Vitamin E, calcium and oil can help prevent arthritis. Eat lots of fruits, green leafy vegetables and milk products. Fish is a good source of cod liver oil, which helps fight arthritis. Drink plenty of water, which is necessary for joint lubrication. It also helps with weight maintenance. Think of drinking water as ridding your body of toxins.
