We spread the goodness of Ayurveda in Melbourne. Ayurveda has a lot to offer to fortify the strength of everyone. As a Naturopath in Melbourne we are particularly attuned to the needs of those in Melbourne, our immediate patrons and clients, to their desire to heal minds, bodies and souls. Today let us catch up with the signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis flare-ups and how to mitigate them.

Ayurveda calls Rheumatoid Arthritis “Amavata”. It is seen as an exacerbation of the Ama toxins and Vata doshas in the body.

Ama toxins are endotoxins produced in the body due to a decline in digestive functions and a subsequent build up of undigested food. This, in turn, aggravates Vata dosha.

With time, these detrimental substances get collected in the synovial membrane of the joints, causing the chronic and painful illness of RA.

RA can affect several organs of the body, but the most perceivable symptoms are

● Joint pain ( Sandhi Shula )

● Chronic fatigue syndromeJoint swelling ( Sandhi Shotha )

● Joint stiffness ( Stabdhata )

Ayurclinic exhorts its readers to simplify life with Ayurveda. Most patients who line up at our clinic have life-altering illnesses owing to their wrong diet and routine choices.

The Healing Diet

An anti-inflammatory diet can reduce the symptoms of RA. An intake of a diet rich in leafy vegetables, aloe vera, ginger and turmeric can fast track your healing process.

Leafy vegetables

Polyphenols, Vitamin E, bioflavonoids, riboflavin, catechins, vitamin C, carotenoids present in green leafy vegetables are prescribed by naturopaths to lessen the inflammation caused by RA. Bitter vegetables such as neem, bitter gourd, bottle gourd, brinjal, pointed gourd, goosefoot, drumsticks can also be added to the rheumatoid arthritis diet. Arugula, kale, greens from dandelions and radicchio have anti-inflammatory properties.

Aloe Vera

A study that was published in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association in 1994 reported that aloe vera reduced the inflammation in joints that were affected by arthritis. Ayurclinic is always keen on spreading the good news of herbs that are real blessings of Nature to restore our physical constitution.

Ginger

The anti-inflammatory substances in Ginger work the same way as COX-2 inhibitors, drugs used to treat pain and inflammation. Therefore, it is an excellent addition to a Naturopathy diet for arthritis.

Turmeric

Research shows that curcumin present in turmeric blocks certain enzymes and cytokines that lead to inflammation. Its role in RA cannot be overlooked. Ayurclinic considers turmeric as a ‘golden’ weapon against a lot of lifestyle diseases.

The followers of Ayurclinic realize that Ayurveda is all about clearing out modern lifestyle illnesses for old-fashioned, holistic health.
