What are the types of arthritis?
  • Arthritis isn’t a disease, but a degenerative condition where the cartilages, ligaments, tendons or bones start to wear out.
  • It can be triggered by a number of factors like autoimmunity, injuries, blood toxins etc.
  • Presently, more than a 100 arthritis types are known, of which the most common are:
  • Osteoarthritis: Caused by wear and tear of the connective tissues. Leads to breakdown of bone strength. Gets worse with ageing.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Arthritis symptoms in hands like tenderness, distortion etc. are usually brought on by this condition. It occurs when the white blood cells start attacking the joint muscles.
  • Psoriatic arthritis: A complicated form of arthritis that affects skin, ligaments and joints. Characteristic signs include full body swelling and coloured skin patches.
  • Lupus: Severe autoimmune disorder that hijacks every part of the body from hair to kidneys. Leads to inflammatory arthritis in the later stage.
  • Gout: Excess uric acid builds up in the form of crystals at the joints. This in turn, causes redness, localized swelling and lack of movement.
  • Infectious arthritis: Rare to encounter. Microbes like fungi, bacteria and viruses can damage the joint tissues. Can be treated with antibiotics upon timely diagnosis.
What are the early warning signs of arthritis?
  • Each type of arthritis can produce distinct physical signs.
  • But the initial arthritis symptoms are similar in all of the cases.
  • They include extreme pain or swelling in joints, inability to move and weakness.
  • Persistent pain: It may get worse after walking or sitting for long hours. Occurs in multiple joints at the same time.
  • Joint redness or swelling: Soft and bulgy flare up of muscles around the joints. Results in deformation of bones.
  • Morning stiffness: Experienced after waking up for a short duration of time. Most common in rheumatoid arthritis knee.
  • Lack of energy: You may also notice drastic weight loss and fatigue. It can be followed by a mild to moderate fever.
  • Anemia: In rare cases, negligence can lead to deficiency of iron or death of RBCs.
What really causes arthritis?
  • Arthritis is characterized by severe inflammation and damage to the joint tissues.
  • Such a condition can arise because of internal and external factors like blood toxicity, genes and accidents.
  • Autoimmunity: Most common arthritis causes, affecting one in every 10 patients. Caused when the WBCs become overactive and start attacking the cells of cartilages, bone marrow or ligaments.
  • Metabolic dysfunction: Improper digestion of food produces toxins that can collect in/around the joints, causing severe inflammation. Eventually, they can irreversibly damage them.
  • Overuse: Performing heavy-duty physical activity for a long period of time can cause wear and tear of the cartilage. It may be further aggravated by infection, deficiencies and physical injury.
  • Family history: Having a parent suffering with arthritis can predispose you to the disorder at the later stages of your life.
  • The correct choice of Arthritis treatment depends on the underlying cause.
  • It is essential to consult the physician to identify and understand the nature of your condition, for better management.
Which foods make arthritis worse?
  • Sugars and Added Sugars: That wayward bite of carb-rich pastry, white bread, chocolate and soda can intensify your joint pains. So, such hidden sugars are best left out from your arthritis diet!
  • Processed food items: All the items manufactured for long-term storage like juices, snacks, ready-to-eat meals etc. can trigger inflammatory reactions. They also predispose you to obesity.
  • Animal proteins: Frying, grilling or roasting of proteins, especially red meat increases their trans-fat quotient. It can aggravate your arthritis symptoms.
  • High-fat dairy: Cheese, butter, mayonnaise and cream contain saturated fats that irritate damaged joint tissues, thereby increasing the pain and swelling.
  • Addictive Substances: Besides increasing your blood toxicity, alcohol, nicotine and tobacco contain stimulants that prevent healing of tissues.
What does arthritis pain feel like?
  • It is difficult to identify the early stages of arthritis pain due to its low intensity and transitory nature.
  • Initially, you may experience it as a dull or throbbing ache right after performing a physical activity.
  • As the joint(s) degrades further, arthritis in hands, knees or ankles may give a burning sensation, shooting or grinding pain.
  • It may last for a few hours after physical movement or persist for weeks.
  • Some patients may also notice morning stiffness for some moments after waking up in the morning.
Can arthritis be cured?
  • Currently, there is no sure shot treatment available for arthritis.
  • But there are a number of management techniques and medications that can give arthritis pain relief.
  • As of date, natural remedies offer a more resolute solution for this disorder.
  • They use dietary regulations, physical therapies and Ayurvedic herbs to improve joint movements.
What is the best treatment for arthritis pain?
  • Chemical medicines: A series of painkillers, immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory medicines are available to relieve immediate symptoms. But they do not offer long term relief.
  • Surgery: Can help to repair, replace or re-align the affected joint. Joint fusion surgery is used for arthritis in fingers to reinstate mobility.
  • Physiotherapy: Not helpful in every case. It can ease the blood flow through the affected areas to promote range of movement.
  • Ayurvedic treatment: Assists in quick repair of joints. Revitalizes the entire musculoskeletal system. Can prevent degradation of joints.
  • Ayurveda is the safest and most effective arthritis management treatment available today.
  • It can be used by people of all ages for a long period of time, without any risk of dependency or side effects.
How does Ayurveda treat arthritis?
  • Ayurveda classifies arthritis as a Vata disorder, caused by the aggravation of “air” energy in the body.
  • Vata imbalance affects the musculoskeletal system, nervous functions and natural detox process of your body.
  • So, Ayurveda uses a multi-faceted approach to balance Vata energy, thereby using the body's natural healing mechanism to curb arthritis.
  • An ideal natural arthritis treatment includes dietary modifications, exercise regime and herbal supplements.
  • Diet: A vegetarian diet composed of high fibre, vitamin and mineral rich foods is recommended. Dairy products are equally consumed.
  • Physical exercise: Yoga is considered the best arthritis exercise. Postures like Sun Salutations, Child’s pose and Cow pose tone the cartilages and reduce tissue swelling.
  • Herbal remedies: Garlic, Ginger, Castor oil, Ashwagandha, multiple ‘bhasma’ (mineral ash) etc. are used to recover joint capacity.
Which are the best natural remedies for arthritis?
  • Turmeric: It is the best arthritis medicine you can find in the kitchen. Drink it up in milk, eat it with your food or apply its paste - either ways Turmeric can be your natural pain reliever.
  • Aloe Vera: Natural antioxidant herb that stabilizes gut function and eliminates pain-producing enzymes.
  • Green Tea: Every cup provides a range of bioactive compounds that soothe the inflamed tissues, purify the blood and reduce pain.
  • Cinnamon: Boosts the cellular regeneration rate to fasten healing of damaged joints. Breaks down inflammation-causing proteins.
  • Fish oil: Repository of Omega 3-fatty acids that rejuvenate the joint tissues. Promotes healing of damaged cartilages.
Which are the 5 best essential oils for arthritis?
  • Black Cumin: Massage it on the affected area thrice every day. It helps to reduce the intensity of arthritis pain and prevent it.
  • Ginger: Best oil to accelerate your arthritis knee treatment. Contains anti-inflammatory compounds that improve joint movement and reduce muscular stiffness.
  • Eucalyptus: Has a pleasing scent. Regular application relieves the tension on cartilages. Can curb all arthritis symptoms in the long run.
  • Lavender: Works on all kinds of musculoskeletal pain. Promotes overall physical health. Gives a refreshing feeling.
  • Frankincense oil: Prevents production of inflammation causing enzymes, thereby slowing down the degradation of cartilages.
