Arthritis and Ayurveda
Arthritis is a pathology that takes place in people of any age or gender and manifests itself through pain, swelling, and fluid accumulation in the joints. Therefore, it involves the degradation of joint structures, particularly the cartilage.
Normal cartilage protects a joint and allows it to move smoothly.
According to Ayurveda, this is the result of an unbalanced lifestyle, nutritional and psycho-emotional disorders, where an imbalance of internal energies (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) occurs, and weakens the metabolic processes in the body leading to the accumulation of toxins. That is why the most important Ayurvedic recommendation is to treat arthritis by eliminating toxins from the body.
Otherwise, the human skeleton loses its flexibility, becomes tense and painful.
As mentioned above, among the causes that weaken and degrade the body and affect the quality of joints, either due to eating habits, lifestyle, mood, emotional state or a combination of several factors are: excessive intake of fatty, fried foods; excessive intake of incompatible foods (milk and fish); staying awake regularly at night; traumas from physical origins (accidents) and so on.
Ayurveda can improve the quality of life and significantly reduce the symptoms of arthritis, so it is essential to follow strict dietary and lifestyle advice in the long term and to repeat the treatment phases regularly.
