My sister is suffering from arthritis for about 2 yrs. Sometimes her legs and hands get swelled and become painful to move leg and hands. Please tell me ayurvedic treatment.

allopathic treatment can be very good and effective. ayurvedic treatment for arthritis contains bhasm and gold which can be very toxic, so the claims that it is side effect free is totally wrong...also many a times unchecked and unregulated ayurvedic powders (patients never ask about source of ayurvedic drugs unlike allopathic which is always printed) contain steroids which gives good relief but can be harmful
