Osteoarthritis Healer Kit
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects the cartilage, the tissue that acts as a cushion between the bones in a joint. As the cartilage wears down, the bones begin to rub against each other, causing pain, stiffness, and limited movement in the affected joint. Osteoarthritis is often referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis because it is most commonly caused by the natural aging process, although other factors such as injury, obesity, and genetics can also contribute to its development. It is the most common type of arthritis that affects older adults.
Ayurvedic treatment of Osteoarthritis prevents further deterioration in the joints and rejuvenates damaged cartilage. Ayurveda suggested some special treatments for lubrication and strengthening of joints as well to reduce Vata levels. Ayurvedic has an excellent approach to Sandhigata Vata. It aims at treating the alleviated Vata dosha, preventing the progression of the disease, and aiding in the lubrication and rejuvenation of joints.
