Symptoms and treatment of Amavata

Rheumatoid arthritis is different from osteoarthritis because of the fact that unlike age-related degeneration causing the latter, rheumatoid arthritis can happen to anyone at any stage of your life irrespective of age or wear and tear. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, which means the body's immune system mistakes joined and bone tissues for foreign pathogens and attacks them, thereby damaging them. As a result, the lining of the joints become completely deteriorated and damaged which causes pain, inflammation and eventually deformity which affects mobility.

Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

 In the early stage, Amavata or rheumatoid arthritis begins with smaller joints in the body, especially those that are in the finger and tools of your feet. You will begin experiencing mild pain, inflammation and swelling in the affected areas, especially in the morning. As the disease progresses spreads to slightly larger joints such as the rest, knees, ankles et cetera. By this time other symptoms also start to show, such as stiffness in the joints primarily in the morning after getting out of bed. Increased fatigue, one body temperatures, as well as loss of appetite. Unlike osteoarthritis, gout and other joint disorders, rheumatoid arthritis also affects the lungs, heart, kidney, nerve tissues, skin and eyes. Therefore, rheumatoid arthritis treatment in ayurveda takes a completely different approach compared to modern medicine. It works at the root cause of the problem, thereby enhancing the overall efficacy and improvement in the conditions of the patient.

 Causes of rheumatoid arthritis

 Although rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, which is a very strong genetic/hereditary underpinning, however there can be many different causes that can trigger the disorder. Here are six of the most common causes of rheumatoid arthritis.

 Gender: Over the last 27 years of providing successful treatment, doctors at Jiva have observed that the disorder is more common among women than men.

 Age: People In the age group of 35 to 45 are at higher risk of developing the disorder than their younger counterparts. This is also the time when the disease onsets in most of the cases.

 Hereditary cause: If someone in the family, either on the mothers or fathers side had rheumatoid arthritis in the past, the risk of their children having this in disorder increases significantly.

 Environmental factors: High concentration of asbestos or silica in the air is believed to be a leading cause behind rheumatoid arthritis. People who work in the construction business, residing in areas where construction had been going on for a long period, are more likely to report rheumatoid arthritis than people who have a lower exposure to these substances.

 Conditions that complicated rheumatoid arthritis

 Passions of rheumatoid arthritis after undergoing treatment may experience sudden complications in their condition because of new comorbidity development. Some of the most common health complications are as follows:

  1. Heart problems: the autoimmune nature of the disorder has far-reaching effect not just on the joints but also on the nerves, which becomes hard and blogged, obstructing the flow of blood to and from the heart. This leads to cardiac complications in many cases.


  1. Lung disorders: scarring of the lung tissues is another common complication that is seen with patience of rheumatoid arthritis, especially those with pre-existing conditions of respiratory problems.


  1. Dryness of the eyes and mouth: an associated complication that is often observed in rheumatoid arthritis patients is excessive dryness of the eyes and mouth. Modern medicine describes this as Sjogren's syndrome.


  1. Osteoporosis: in addition to rheumatoid arthritis, with the progression of age, many people also suffer from osteoporosis, which is a degenerative bone disorder and common among people in their advanced ages. When this is combined with rheumatoid arthritis, the scope of treatment becomes more complicated.
