Arthritis is considered to be a part of the agening process. As we grow older, our joints begin to become stiff and painful. The motion of joints becomes limited, and often bones become disfigured. With a healthy lifestyle, one can certainly delay the onset of these symptoms. But when these problems do strike, how would you deal with them?
Ayurveda has many tips that help in living with Arthritis. As you may be aware, Ayurveda views any health problem in a wholistic way. So pain in joints is not just that. Ayurveda treats the patient in a more wholistic way by evaluating overall health and fitness of the patient. Arthritis is ascribed to sedentary lifestyle, stress and poor metabolism. So Ayurveda tries to fix these root causes in order to treat your joint pain and inflammation.
