Natural Treatment For Osteoarthritis


Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the joints. Joints play a vital role in the life of every individual. Movements are only possible with the help of joints. A joint is a part of the body where one or two or more bones are met together to allow various movements. In general, greater the range of movements higher the risk of injury! A joint or articulation is the connection made between the bones in the body which make the skeletal system into the functional whole. Every joint is lubricated with synovial fluid which makes them hold compression and heavy weights. But with age this lubrication in between joints decreases and makes it difficult to move freely and causes pain. So further in this article we are going to discuss osteoarthritis and herbal remedies for osteoarthritis.



Osteoarthritis is the common type of arthritis that affects millions of people worldwide. This disease occurs
when the protective covering of the joints that is cartilage breaks down with time then it makes it difficult for
joints to function properly. These cartilages act as a cushion for the joints. As we said that this is a degenerative disorder so in this condition this cushion part deteriorates or wears down over time and makes the surface rough and decreases the gap in between the joints. After this condition, there is a loss of friction and causes pain while moving. This will restrict the movements of the joints.

Ayurvedic Aspect On Osteoarthritis

Ayurveda is the earliest and holistic restorative science used since 5000 years. Ayurveda, which means “Science of Life” in Sanskrit. Ayurveda knowledge allows us to learn how to achieve and maintain the balance of the body, mind, and consciousness based on the unique prakriti of the individual. In Ayurveda, we can correlate this disease on the basis of symptoms with Sandhigata vata. This disease is caused by the aggravation of Vata dosha. Vata is vitiated by a variety of causes including consumption of rough food items, cold potency food items, and a diet rich in pungent, bitter and astringent taste and also the person who eats contaminated foods, overeating, suppression of natural urges and also staying awake at night. So when vata gets vitiated then it enters into the joints and due to its Ruksha guna (Dry properties) it dries off the synovial fluids of the joints and causes pain and inflammation. These causes will lead to heaviness and inflammation in the joints and pain during the movements of the joints.
