Ankylosing spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis

When the spinal column bends.

“My back is increasingly stiff.” “I have a dull pain in my lumbar spine.” “I lean forward more and more when I walk.”

This or a similar experience is what ankylosing spondylitis patients report with regard to their constrictive disease.

The initial symptom is usually a dull pain in the lumbar or gluteal region, accompanied by lower-back morning stiffness. Pain is often severe when the person is at rest, but improves with physical activity. Within a few months the pain becomes lasting.

Ankylosing spondylitis is a genetic predisposition and can be recognized by the malfunction of the body’s immune system. The junctions between tendons and muscles in the pelvis and spinal column area are especially affected. The resulting inflammation produces swelling and damage in the bone marrow, which ossifies over time.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on ankylosing spondylitis?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, ankylosing spondylitis starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of ankylosing spondylitis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the entire body and disturb the immune system. Through the inflammatory reaction the body tries to loosen and release the joint-aggravating substances.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s ankylosing spondylitis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each ankylosing spondylitis patient.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of ankylosing spondylitis, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as strengthening of the individual’s digestive power can be recommended to limit the building up of new toxins. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can lessen inflammation in the spinal column effectively.
