With the known side effects of arthritis medication, osteoarthritis Ayurveda offers an alternative worth trying out. This medication offers a combination of treatments that have been used centuries ago and continue to prove helpful in many treatments.

Osteoarthritis Ayurveda focuses on holistic mind body and spirit healing to counter the effects of osteoarthritis. All the treatment procedures are natural and aimed at promoting good health. These include:

  • Herbal treatments
  • Meditation
  • Yoga

Herbal Treatments

Inflammation is a major concern in osteoarthritis but many of the medications prescribed tend to have unpleasant side effects. Ayurveda treatments, on the other hand, are very effective at managing inflammation and yet they have no side effects.

Many of these herbal remedies are easy to find and are common in Asian dishes. For example, turmeric is used to manage inflammation. It contains curcumin which effectively prevents the production of the enzyme lipo-oxygenase and phospholipase A2 that cause inflammation. Other commonly used herbs with anti-inflammatory properties include:

  • Ginger
  • Boswelia
  • Ashwagandha
  • Shatavari

Meditation Treatment

Meditation in the treatment of osteoarthritis plays a big part in balancing the body and the spirit. A calm spirit is just as important for managing pain and affecting health. Chronic pain may have various causes that ordinary medicine would have trouble dealing with but through meditation, a level of control over inflammation can be achieved.

Many scientific studies on the effectiveness of meditation to manage chronic pain have come up with the same result. Mindful meditation is effective in creating a level of managed pain. These studies show that meditation may not stop the pain, but effectively influence the mind to deal with the pain.

Certain mental states may create a feeling of intense pain. For example, anxiety and depression are usually associated with pain. By meditating, the mind can relax and that calmness will reduce the effect of pain.

In further studies, it was noted that meditation can enhance the body’s reaction to modern medicine. People who have been meditating for long, show better reactions to medication that helps in the treatment of chronic pain.

Yoga for Osteoarthritis

Yoga is a combination of emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. It creates a constant awareness of our bodies even when you go about your daily activities. Some of the important ingredients for good health can be attained from yoga.

For the physical, it is important to have flexibility, strength, and balance. These are all part of the yoga treatment. Simple actions like stretching may be ignored in normal life, but they are vital for the wellbeing of the body.

Some of the positions that we maintain as we sit or walk may cause stress on joints and that may cause pain. Through yoga, we can undo such harm that may have been caused.

Relaxing poses in yoga is essential for emotional stability. Emotional wellbeing influences how we deal with pain and how intense it may be. You can create mental energy in the process of yoga.

Conclusion

Identifying the causes of osteoarthritis can help in prescribing the remedy for it. Ayurveda treatment combines different techniques that have been proven to improve the conditions of people with arthritis. The treatment of body, mind, and spirit is effective and doesn’t come with unpleasant side effects.
