Natural Remedy for Arthritis

Arthritis or joint pains is caused mainly due to suppression of agni or digestive fire. This results in poor digestion, which leads to accumulation of undigested wastes in the body resulting in buildup of ama (waste matter). The toxins reach different parts of body and get accumulated at joints.

Thus the first step in treating arthritis is to stimulate agni (digestive fire).

Ayurveda classify arthritis into three – vata, pitta and kapha type joint pains.

Vata type arthritis is characterized by dryness of the joints.

Pitta type arthritis is characterized by swollen joints. Pain increases when you move your limbs. Joints feel hot.

Kapha type arthritis is characterized by stiff swollen joints. Joints feel cold. Move the limbs a bit and you feel relieved from pain.

Certain yoga postures are found to offer relief from arthritis pain. Choose the yoga postures that may be beneficial to you with the help of a trained yoga practitioner.

Detoxification processes including enemas and panchakarma are beneficial in treating arthritis. It removes much of the accumulated toxic wastes and gives relief to pain.

Narayana oil and Sahacharadi oil are beneficial massage oils that have the power to bring down arthritis pain. The effect of the oils depends primarily on your body type.

Narayana oil removes stiffness and improves mobility at limbs and is especially beneficial in reducing backache, sprains and joint pains.

If Sahacharadi oil doesn't reduce the pain considerably in 24 hours of first massage, discontinue the application. If your body responds favorably to the massage oil, it will start showing results in less than 12 hours. This oil comes is rose in color and has special effects on Vata and Kapha type bodies.
