Ayurvedic Approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis

According to Ayurveda, Arthritis is caused due to inflammation of one or more joints. It is a broad term used to describe various conditions that affect the joints.

Arthritis, like most pains, is a condition caused by accumulation of ama - an offshoot of improper digestion - and aggravation of Vata Dosha. This ama circulated and deposits at regions and sites that are weaker. When it happens at the same time, as there is vitiation of Vata, it results in Amavata, in today's parlance called Arthritis, inhibiting mobility, joint function and comfort.
