Holistic Treatment for Arthritis

Aug 16 2022

Arthritis is not just an ailment that can be ignored or taken casually. It affects your normal life and activities, leading to discomfort, pain, and unhappiness. It can affect people of any age, gender, and race. Although it’s not strictly related to aging, a few of its types are mostly seen in the older lot. Here, it could be addressed through a healthy and limited intake, moderate exercise, healthy weight, and avoiding foods that encourage inflammation.

Most experienced symptoms of arthritis include swelling, stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility. The symptoms may come and go, range from mild to severe and some may even worsen over time. Severe conditions may lead to difficulty in performing normal and daily activities, and chronic pain especially while walking or climbing.

A few types of Arthritis:

Osteoarthritis, the most common, primarily affects hands, spine, hips, and knees. Once, it was considered a ‘wear-and-tear’ result of years of daily activities wherein the cartilage underwent deterioration. With medical research, now it is considered an ailment of the entire joint, and not just the cartilage. Bones in the affected joint area go weak, the connective tissue holding the joint together deteriorates and the joint lining gets inflamed.

Auto-immune Inflammatory Arthritis points to an overactive immune system that attacks the healthy tissue including joints, typically in the hands, feet, and spine. The immune system loses the ability to differentiate between ‘self’ and ‘alien’ and attacks the system it is supposed to protect.

Infectious Arthritis is normally triggered by a viral, fungal, or bacterial infection. It comes into effect when an infection from some part of the body travels to a joint, which in most cases is the knee. Sudden swelling, pain, and fever could be experienced. The viral infection normally lasts a week or so and goes away on its own or with over-the-counter medication. Fungal infection too could be handled in a similar manner, but a bacterial infection would need professional medical help.

Gout results from a buildup of excess uric acid in the big toe or other joints. This could be caused by excessive consumption of red meats, organ meats, certain types of seafood, and alcohol. Normally, the body can do away with the excess uric acid content, but when it doesn’t, sudden and intense shoots of pain could be experienced in the big toe or other joints. Here, a plant-based diet rich in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, and low-purine foods is advised. Physical exercise and maintaining a healthy weight help.

While conventional medical help may address inflammation, stiffness, and pain, traditional medicine, and therapies such as the Ayurvedic ones, are known to help address and treat the root cause behind the ailment.

Yoga is an ancient practice that is a fusion of physical stretches, controlled breathing techniques, and meditation. It is known to help relieve joint pain, improve the range of mobility, and generate a feeling of wellness and wellbeing.
