Joint pain- Ayurvedic Treatment

Joint pain has become a very common ailment in the modern age because of modern and restless lifestyle and nutrient-less fast food, lack of proper exercise and the polluting environment. If you are lucky enough, you might be one of the hundreds who has no joint pain at all. Thousands of people visit doctors with the complaint of joint pain, and in return they get a bagful of medicines and massage oil, which tear apart their money wallet and after prolonged use of the medications even stomach gets torn down because of side effects of high power medicines without any help to joint pain.

Although you might be frustrated with the magnet like disease, joint pain, there are several ways we can avoid it or root it out altogether. The most important part is regular exercise(sensible exercise and not reckless exercise, yoga is best).

Let us talk about one of the most ancient medication system Ayurveda for Joint Pain treatment.

As per Ayurveda, the root cause of joint pain is ama. It comes into picture when there is a digestion problem, lack of interest to have food. This is known as Agnimandya in Ayurveda. When appetite loss happens, Ama gets formed and absorbed by body system which leads to joint pain.If this happens for a longer time ama accumulates in joints and lead to arthritis. Ayurveda says if appetite loss is treated early arthritis can be prevented.

If you are already suffering from arthritis, it is advisable to take proper Ayurveda drugs to digest it by body system. Panchakarma is one of the most effective treatment in Ayurveda to root out Ama in joints.If you take care of your digestive system from the beginning, there will be minimal chances of joint pain. Never avoid taking food when you are hungry. Do not take anything which will hinder your appetite like cold drinks or fast food. Warm water mixed with Soonth, Pippali is known to be helpful in retaining the digestive power. Avoid constipation by taking digestible food.

If you are overweight, you might need to reduce your weight. You should remember that your joints were meant to bear your body weight which brings it most strain. Do not start a dieting spree. Painkillers like Aspirin etc. give relief for a short time and creating the highway for the worst paint in future, avoid them.

One of the reasons behind joint pain is Vata Dosha. Ayurveda says massage with Mahanarayana oil in and around affected part is helpful. Apply hot water and steam along with the oil massage. Nirgundi leaves boiled with Castor oil is helpful in controlling joint pain.
