Rheumatic diseases

Rheumatic diseases

When the joints ache.

“All my joints hurt.” “My knees are swollen.” “My ankles ache and they feel hot.”

This or a similar experience is what rheumatism patients report with regard to their agonizing complaints.

One or more joints are swollen and warm, and there is radiating, shooting or stretching pain. These are clear signs of inflamed joints. In case of rheumatism, mostly metacarpophalangeal or interphalangeal joints are affected, but the larger joints of arms and legs are also often chronically inflamed. It is also typical to see the pain move from one joint to another, and several joints can be affected at the same time.

Rheumatism often causes restrictions to movement. Prolonged rheumatism very often results in deformation of the affected joints.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on rheumatism?

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

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of rheumatism, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the articular cartilage. Due to the subsequent acute inflammatory response, the body tries to loosen and release the joint-aggravating substances, but often in vain.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s rheumatism 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 rheumatism 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 rheumatism, 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 your joints effectively.
