How to Get Rid of Arthritis in Winter with Herbal Remedies?

Abstract

Each year is divided into four seasons i.e. winter, summer, spring and autumn which are distinguished by specific temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, and precipitation. Various studies have shown that seasonal changes influence clinical manifestations and trigger the onset of arthritis. It has been proven that working in a cold environment and people living in the northern hemisphere have a high risk of developing the symptoms of arthritis. According to Ayurvedic principles, a sedentary lifestyle leads to the production of Ama or toxins in the body which further gets accumulated in tissues and causes inflammation. (8)

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a chronic joint inflammatory disorder that causes pain, stiffness, etc. in joints. The term Arthritis has been derived from the Greek term which means disease of the joints. According to the reviews, one-third of the total American population is suffering from arthritis and it tends to increase day by day. The prevalence of the disease varies between 19% – 30% of adults, out of which 40% are men and 47% are women. The incidence is increasing by 60% and the reason for this is having a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30. (7)
