Arthritis is a common joint disorder owing to its prevalence in adults, the debilitating disorder is characterised by constant pain and inflammation in the affected joints. Joint stiffness restricts movement in the disease. The common symptoms of Arthritis include inability to use the hand or walk, weight loss, fatigue difficulty in moving joints, muscle aches and pain. Varied levels of pain are prevalent in the different forms of Arthritis. The major forms of Arthritis are Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Gouty Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the common form of Arthritis affecting aged adults in contrast to Rheumatoid Arthritis affecting middle aged adults. Gouty Arthritis is caused by the deposition of Uric acid crystals in the joint resulting in inflammation. The joints in Gout become swollen and lose function. In the early stages, this form of Arthritis affects one joint and later it affects many joints. Arthritis Ayurvedic cure is quite effective, Ayurveda provides complete cure for the various forms of Arthritis with the inception of Arthritis therapy. External therapies such as Abhyanga or therapeutic oil massage, Podikkizhi or powder bolus massage, Elakizhi or leaf bolus massage, Njavara or rice bolus massage are used in treatment for Arthritis.

Indeed dear lezin, lots of truths here. Of course there are many other arthritises, such as psoriatic arthritis, the arthritis of SLE, Sickle cell disease etcetera. Unfortunately most of the treatments available are only short term and symptomatic. The only way to "cure" an arthritis is to address its cause and that will be different for each disease... which is why a proper diagnosis is the place to start. Then, most treatments work too slow for the sufferer to know immediately whether it works or not, which is why we need a laboratory to QUANTIFY the inflammation and follow up to see if it improves. At Hoogland we currently use the ESR (Erythrocyte sedimentation rate) to measure the total inflammation in your blood.

Incidentally, research in StPetersburg, Russia, found that all these various forms of arthritis responds positively to a period of fasting. The inflammation, after all, is something that needs to come OUT of the body, and we cannot get something OUT by putting something IN!


Please note that all my posts are "generic", often theoretically speculating about the topic. It should NOT be considered individual medical advice, which remains the prerogative of your own registered medical practitioner after proper consultation, examination and investigations as necessary....
