Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis through Ayurveda


Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that is progressive in nature and causes complaints like swollen, red, painful, and warm joints. Even permanent joint deformity and destruction can occur if the condition becomes chronic and is not treated well. Rheumatoid arthritis is characterized by periods of flare-up and remission. In this disease, a person’s own immune system starts to work abnormally against certain tissues of the body and destroy them. This leads to synovium inflammation (Synovium is the lining of the joints).

Hence causing inflammation in the joints. Both sides of the body joints are affected in Rheumatoid arthritis like both the knees, hands, or wrists. This symmetry of affected joints differentiates the RA from other kinds of arthritis. Other than joints RA also affects other parts of the body when it progresses over time like skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. In this write up we will be discussing the RA, its causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and herbal treatment by herbal medicines provided by Planet Ayurveda.

Rheumatoid arthritis


Rheumatoid arthritis is primarily a joint disease, autoimmune in nature which eventually leads to the destruction of the joints leading to deformity of the affected part. RA affects multiple joints and usually in a symmetrical pattern. One of the bad factors about this disease is that joints can be damaged to great extent without any correlation with the severity of the disease which means even if the RA is not so severe considerable destruction of joints can be there.

RA antibody is detected in the blood of most of the patients affected by Rheumatoid arthritis. This makes the diagnosis of the disease easy as no extensive tests are required. As per the modern medicine, RA cannot be cured but with the help of Ayurveda, you can manage and eradicate this ailment naturally.


The exact cause behind RA is not known yet, however, there are certain factors which are found to be associated with it usually like:

  • A viral or bacterial infection
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Amoing
  • Inhalation of silica
  • Periodontal disease
  • Microbes or bacteria of the bowels


There are certain signs and symptoms of RA which warns the patient, noticing them and timely action can save the damage. Some of them are:

  • Pain in joints like hands, wrists, knees, and feet
  • Swelling on the joints
  • Fever
  • Morning stiffness or stiffness in the joints after long rest
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty in walking
  • Range of motion is reduced
  • Tenderness of the joints
  • Rheumatoid nodules
  • Warm joints
  • Anemia
  • Deformity of the joint
  • The symmetry of the affected joints


The main diagnostic feature of RA is the clinical presentation of the patient. No single test can be used to diagnose this ailment. Diagnosis can be made depending upon the joints involved, presence of morning stiffness and swelling of joints, RA factor in the blood test, and X-ray indicating the presence of nodule (RA nodules).


The main aim of the Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment is to relieve the swelling and pain of the joints. Medicines are given to slow down the progression of the disease and hence preventing damage and deformity of the joints to a certain extent. Usually, the medications used are anti-inflammatory, pain relievers, and corticosteroids. Along with these medications, certain exercises and rest are recommended to the patient. Exercises are done to ease the stiffness and strengthen the muscles and increase the flexibility of the joints.

Ayurveda can help you treat and manage RA naturally. Ayurveda is the science of life which considers the vitiation of any dosha, i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha the cause of different diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis is called Amavata in the Ayurvedic terms and caused due to the imbalance of Vata dosha and balancing it is the main aim of the treatment so the disease can be eradicated from the root cause. Along with vitiation of the Vata dosha, there occurs the impairment of the digestive fire that results in the formation of the endotoxin (Ama) in the body. This ama deposits in the joints causing swelling and inflammation.
