What is Rheumatoid arthritis Ayurvedic treatment


Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an auto immune disorder where the body’s defense systems turns against it, and mainly affect the joints but may also severely affect the eyes, skin, lungs, heart and blood vessels. It generally manifests as pain in the joints along with swelling and difficulty in movements. Unlike osteoarthritis which affects the weight bearing joints, rheumatoid arthritis affects any and most joints of the body.1

In Ayurveda, this condition is relatable to the concept of Amavata (Ama – toxin, vata- joint pain). Due to specific factors, ama (toxins) spread in tissues and enter the joints to cause restricted movements, swelling and pain in the joints. The same Ama (Toxic substances produced ) enters the dhamani by circulation with the help of vata. So both Ama and Vata aggravate simultaneously and enters different sites of the body and ultimately leads to stabdhata (immobility) in the body, this is called “Amavata”. The pathology of the entire process is complex and the disease is considered to progress very poorly in Ayurveda.2
