ARTHRITIS

WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?

Inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness that can
worsen with age. Different types of arthritis exist, each with different
causes including wear and tear, infections and underlying diseases.
Symptoms include pain, swelling, reduced range of motion and
stiffness. Medication, physiotherapy or sometimes surgery helps
reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.

WHAT CAUSES ARTHRITIS ?

Different types of arthritis have different causes. For instance, gout is the
result of too much uric acid in your body. But for other types of arthritis, the
exact cause is unknown. You may develop arthritis if you:

  • Have a family history of arthritis.
  • Have a job or play a sport that puts repeated stress on your joints.
  • Have certain autoimmune diseases or viral infections.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ARTHRITIS ?

Different types of arthritis have different symptoms. They can be mild in
some people and severe in others. Joint discomfort might come and go, or
it could stay constant. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain.
  • Redness.
  • Stiffness.
  • Swelling.
  • Tenderness.
  • Warmth.

REMEDIES TO CURE ARTHRITIS :

Ayurvedic method – As Ama and Vata are the main causative factors,
a long term remedy for arthritis should include some in-depth
treatment methods to digest Ama and reduce Vata. The digestion

should slowly improve from time to time, thus reducing the production
of Ama, so that no further Ama is created in the long run. This is a
slow, steady, and gradual method, and involves a series of authentic
Ayurvedic treatments.

  •  Fasting is highly essential to boost the digestion of Ama. Fasting can
    either be complete or be partial.
  • Light exercises should complement the daily Ayurvedic treatments.
    The amount and intensity of exercises can vary from person
    toperson, depending on their limits.
  • Liberal intake of fruit juices that are rich in Vitamin C will help
    enhance the effectiveness of the Ayurvedic anti-arthritis treatments.
    Vitamin C is highly essential to reduce skeletal pain.

Commiphorawightii, commonly known as Guggal, is a highly effective
herb to cure arthritis. Based on its availability, Guggal can be taken in
one to three gram doses, twice a day, with warm water, right after
meals. But make sure to note that Guggal is not recommended for
those with kidney diseases or allergies.

FOOD THAT ARE BENIFICIAL FOR ARTHRITIS PATIENCE :

  •  Fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna – Include fishes in your diet,
    particularly herring, salmon, mackerel, and sardine, as they are rich on
    omega 3 fatty acids that help reduce the symptoms of arthritis to a huge
    extent.
  • Arthritis patients should never fail to include ginger in their food, as it can
    help cure various rheumatic, neurological, and musculoskeletal illnesses.
    Having around 5 grams of fresh ginger, about three times a day, can help
    boost digestion, and thus reduce the formation of Ama
  •  Turmeric- A primary compound in turmeric, curcumin has strong anti-
    inflammatory effects that help avoid morning stiffness and joint swellings,
    along with boosting the walking capacity of arthritis patients. According to
    experts, about 2 weeks of curcumin supplementation (roughly 1200 mg
    per day)can guarantee better results when compared to the after-effect of
    having other conventional medicines for two weeks.
  • Garlic is widely used in several Ayurvedic medicines, particularly in the
    anti-arthritis medicine that help relieve the symptoms of arthritis markedly.
  • According to experts, garlic is highly effective in reducing arthritis pain, as it
    can help prostaglandins control the inflammation and subsequent pain.

Other anti-arthritis foods: Raw juice of potato or bitter gourd have been
proven highly effective in reducing arthritis symptoms. Celery, especially its
fluid extract, can help decrease arthritis related illness. Green stalk of
rhubarb is another beneficial food with immense arthritis healing power.

FOOD TO AVOID :

Inflammatory fats : Several types of fat increase inflammation in the
body. According to the Arthritis Foundation, a person with arthritis
should limit:

  • Omega 6 fatty acids: These include oils, such as corn, safflower,
    sunflower, and vegetable oil. Omega 6 fatty acids are not harmful in
    moderation, but many people in America consume a lot of them.
  • Saturated fat: Meat, butter, and cheese contain this type of fat.
    Saturated fat should account for less than 10% of someone’s total
    calorie intake per day.
  •  Trans fats: This type of fat is harmful to human health because it
    reduces “good” cholesterol, increases “bad” cholesterol, and raises
    inflammation levels. Manufacturers have been removing trans fats
    from most prepared foods over the last few years but check the
    nutrition facts panel to be sure.


Sugar : One study Trusted Source in Nutrients indicates that
people who drink regular sugar-sweetened soda have an increased
risk of RA. Harvard Health note that excess sugar consumption also
increases the risk of dying from heart disease. It can also lead
to obesity, inflammation, and other chronic diseases.

Many products contain added sugars. Always check food labels on
breakfast cereals, sauces, and soft drinks, as these may contain surprising
amounts of added sugars.

Nightshade vegetables include:

  •  Tomatoes
  • bell peppers
  • chili peppers
  • eggplant
  • potatoes



The Arthritis Foundation advise that people who suspect nightshades
might exacerbate symptoms exclude them from their diet for a couple
of weeks, then reintroduce them one at a time. Keeping a food diary
may help a person keep track of any reactions they have to a specific
food.
