Arthritis refers to inflammation of the joints, such as wrists, knees, fingers or hips. The disease is characterized by the pain, stiffness, and swelling of the affected joint. Arthritis can also affect connective tissues and other organs of the body. The chances of having this condition increases with age as your joints get worn down over the years.
Arthritis usually causes pain around your joints but can also manifest the following symptoms:
- Swollen joints
- Redness of the joints
- Trouble moving
- Problems doing daily tasks
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that develops as a result of strain on a specific joint. It is characterized by progressive loss of cartilage with remodeling of subchondral bone and deformity of the joint involved. The friction at the joint causes pain and joint stiffness that can affect the quality of life.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects joints and tissues. Human body is equipped with a defense mechanism where the foreign invaders like bacteria and virus are removed from the system. In some cases, the immune system attacks the healthy cells in the body including those in the joints. The exact reasons for this condition is still unknown. If the treatment is not initiated early it can lead to cartilage destruction, and in extreme cases, fusion of joints.
Sciatica causes severe pain along the path of the sciatic nerve and typically affects one side of the body. The pain follows the path of the nerve which branches from the lower back, through hips and buttocks down each leg.
Bursitis affects small, fluid filled sacs (Bursae) that support bones, tendons and muscles near the joints. The condition causes inflammation of these sacs.
Trigeminal nerve carries the sensation from the face to the brain. Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that affects this nerve causing jolts of excruciating pain.
Causes of Arthritis:
Some of the common causes of arthritis are as follows:
- Elevated blood pressure
- Excessive alcohol intake
- Abnormal kidney function
- Certain medications
- Environmental factors
- Underlying medical conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease
An Ayurvedic Perspective of Arthritis
Arthritis is classified into two types, Sandhigat Vata (Osteoarthritis) and Ama Vat (Rheumatoid Arthritis). Sandhigat Vata is a condition caused by malnutrition aggravating the joints that are already injured by infections or a previous injury. It is a condition where there is pain and swelling in the big joints. As with many other diseases, the process of digestion is important to understand the root cause of the condition. Improper digestion results in the formation of toxins as by-products that accumulate in the digestive system. Vata collects in the colon and can be aggravated by the following:
- Sleep deprivation
- Traumatic events
- Eating food at irregular times
- Excessive traveling
- Being in stressful jobs or situations
- Some Medications
- Being extremely busy with rushing around
- Consuming unhealthy foods of food that is excessively cold
Aggravated Vata along with Ama is transported into the joints. Together, Vata and Ama destroy the soft tissues in the joints and later damage the bones. The toxins can also clog the channels supplying nutrients thereby causing further damage. The effects on the joints result in the classic symptoms of osteoarthritis which include inflammation, stiffness, pain, and swelling.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is caused by the accumulation of toxins and the malfunctioning of the defense mechanism. There is a drastic accumulation of toxins in the body along with an increase in heat (Pitta). The imbalance of these elements affects Ojas (Element of the body’s strength and immunity) initiating the disease cascade.
Ama is carried by Vata and reaches sites predominant with Kapha (phlegm) like joints. The sticky toxin clogs micro-channels called ‘srotasa’ that nourish the body. This process not only depletes Ojas but also clogs the channels. The Ama (Toxin) that reaches joints is considered a foreign body resulting in an immune response. This is believed to be the cause of the autoimmune-disease.
Pitta can be aggravated by the following:
- Extreme exercise regimen
- Exposure to extreme hot climate
- Not eating food when hungry
- Taking too many hot showers
- Living in stressful situations
- Being angry or exposed to anger
- Consumption of unhealthy and overheated food
Ayurveda follows a holistic approach with a focus on the health of the individual and alleviating the condition. Ayurvedic medicine for arthritis can help in providing relief from the effects of arthritis or help in the prevention of getting it worse. If identified early, the disease can be managed appropriately. The Ayurvedic treatment may focus on improving digestive fire and removing unhealthy elements from the body. Following a healthy diet will be central for improvement. Ayurvedic medicine for joint pain can help in reducing inflammation, swelling and pain. In rheumatoid arthritis, Ayurveda medicine emphasizes on reducing the toxins along with herbs to reduce inflammation and nourish the body to enhance immunity.
