Ayurveda Treatments For Arthritis

All three doshas occur in bringing about the smooth and smooth moves in the joints. This healthy state occurs when the doshas are balanced and not vitiated.

Kapha: The Kapha dosha helps in the lubrication of the joints and maintains the joints' integrity and stability. Kapha is essentially nutritive (by nature) into the joints. When Kapha morbidity occurs in the kind of its reduction, the joints' stability and integrity are dropped, and the joints' immunity will also decrease. If the joint lubrication gets decreased, the joints will become dry. Vata and Pitta will get out of balance in this environment; mainly, Vata will increase from the prevailing dry atmosphere. Hyper-functioning of Vata in the joints will result in structural damage, degeneration, and pathological fractures, free broken bodies, crepitus (sounds from the joints), and swelling. If the Pitta dosha gets involved in the pathological process, joints' inflammation will only worsen the problem. When Kapha morbidity is heightened in the joints, fluids can accumulate within the joint spaces resulting in swelling. Excess fluids exert constant pressure on the cartilage and the joints. The excessive dampness also sets a breeding ground for infections to occur.

Vata: Vata helps in free moves, keeps up the joint's flexibility, and allows free movements to happen inside the joints. Vata conducts this function on the background of suitable lubrication, integrity, and strength offered to the joint by Kapha. Kapha and Vata are antagonistic when out of balance. Too much Kapha action in the joints will decrease Vata's responses because of the non-availability of free space due to the accumulation of fluids. On the contrary, if Vata increases a pathological increase, it will dry off the fluidity of Kapha, cause excessive dryness, and put in the degeneration process. The joints quickly get deteriorate. 

Pitta: Pitta helps in the metabolism happening in the joints. It keeps up the joint's heat, keeps infections at bay, destroys pathogens, enhances and balances blood circulation (and nutrition) to the joints (being found as an active element within the bloodstream ).

Pitta also provides lubrication to the joint combined with Kapha. Pitta accounts and buffers between Vata and Kapha. Owing to its hot land, it balances the double cold elements i.e., Vata and Kapha, in the joints. The participation of Doshas from the joint pathology, particularly arthritis, and musculoskeletal disorders, can be understood by the symptoms and signs. By taking a look at the symptoms and signs in arthritis, an ayurvedic practitioner could infer in order to that dosha (dosha's) morbidity is included in the causation or aggravation of the illness.

Functional Medicine Treatments For Arthritis

Wellness plans & consultations
In-office & online

Functional medicine's strategy is always to get to the root cause of disease in a holistic and systemic approach. By taking a look at the body's systems as a whole we could detect indications of illness present before acute imbalances in your blood levels are evident. This approach to disease is fantastic for chronic diseases like arthritis where early detection is paramount to recovery and prevention.

Functional Medicine incorporates gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, endocrine, neurological, and psychological therapies to support the whole body's healing capacity. The functional medicine approach for arthritis is based on the belief that our intestine comprises 70-80% of our immune system. Correcting leaky gut and improving digestion are high priorities for a functional medicine approach to both kinds of arthritis. This is because most arthritis is brought on by chronic inflammation throughout the body. Though each category is a bit different, they both have exactly the identical functional medicine treatments focused on the gut and diet. Increasing antioxidants, gut recovery, and anti-inflammatory foods are ways to get in front of this inflammation and balance the immune system.
