Hello Vibha,

Arthritis or pain in joints is one of the most common problems faced by the people of elderly age group and a few from the middle age group. The problem of arthritis can be broadly divided into two categories which are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is mainly due to the friction between the two bones resulting in the erosion and degradation of the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is the autoimmune disease in which a body’s own immune system destroys the joints of the body resulting in inflammation of joints.

I’ll try to cover the domain which is common for both of them.

1. Dietary advice:

  • Eat food which is rich in calcium and iron. Numerous vegetables like spinach etc are an excellent source of the vital minerals. A plant-based diet and a natural approach is advisable.
  • Add turmeric to your diet. Turmeric has a compound called curcumin which has been known to reduce inflammation and aid healing.
  • Ginger tea, and adding ginger in the diet will help you with soothing the inflammation. Ginger also has a calming effect on the body.
  • Fruits like Pineapple which contain Bromelain and cherries which contain anthocyanocides help in relieving the inflammation.
  • Seeds like flax seeds, chia seeds etc are also beneficial in both the types of arthritis.

2. Physical advice:

  • Exercise is one of the main condition for a healthy joint and a healthy body. Do not overstrain the joint but a mild form of exercises like walking or brisk walking etc will prove beneficial.
  • Walking in sunlight daily morning for a minimum of 30-40 minutes will help your body to synthesize Vitamin D naturally. Vitamin D has direct involvement and also has a key role in the strengthening bones and joints.

3. Mental advice:

  • Mental stress has been found to be one of the leading reason and a triggering factor for rheumatoid arthritis and many other autoimmune diseases. Calming exercises can make a difference.
  • Breathing exercises like Anulom-Vilom, Kapal bharati etc can be much more beneficial than you think.
  • Sound sleep and a stress-free living and thinking will play a key role in the process of healing.
  • Meditate daily for 30- 40 minutes. It will calm you and aid in the healing process.

4. Routine and lifestyle advice:

  • Do not drink too much coffee or tea. Green teas would be more suitable for you.
  • Drink plenty of water as water has been known to flush out toxins from the body.
  • Massaging the stiff joint might give you momentary relief.
  • Frequently rest your joints.

I hope I have covered all the points. Do let me know in the comments if you have any doubts.

Thank you.

Namaskar!

We can totally empathize with what you would be going through. It is our endeavor at Wellcure to guide people towards natural living and healing. Let us begin by understanding the Nature Cure perspective. 

As per Nature Cure, our body is designed to stay in a state of health, and diseases are often an attempt to restore any imbalance inside the body. The imbalance is caused because of toxins - which are an output of metabolism and are also added due to unnatural lifestyle choices. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in the nose, eyes, and genitals, etc. Whenever there is toxic overload due to insufficient or faulty elimination our body starts a few special elimination processes. Those are considered as Acute diseases like Flu, Loose-motions, cough, cold, fever, skin rashes, and acute pain. At this stage, instead of supporting the body to get rid of toxins we often suppress symptoms by restoring to quick-fixes like medicines, etc. As a result, the body is unable to throw away the toxins. This is when the ever-increasing amount of toxins in the body starts creating long term disease conditions such as diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, ulcer, etc. And when we further ignore the symptoms or try to suppress them and then the state of the disease takes a turn for the worse. This is when the body has completely given up and starts shutting down slowly, resulting in degenerative diseases. 

The way to reverse diseases is to adopt a natural lifestyle which in turn helps get rid of the toxins and supports the body by providing the right environment for self-healing. we would thereby recommend you to adopt a natural lifestyle. You can explore our  Natural Health Coaching Program,  t that helps you in making the transition, step by step. Our Natural Health Coach will look into your daily routine in a comprehensive way and give you an action plan. She/he will guide you on the diet, sleep, exercise, stress to correct your existing routine & make it in line with Natural Laws.

In the meantime, we would like to guide you to these resources:

All the best!

Hello Vibha,

We can understand that the pain of rheumatoid arthritis can be excruciating and the reason behind it can be because there is an inflammation process happening in the body. If we are getting exposed to junk, and our lifestyle is sedentary.

When our immunity is vulnerable, we become our own enemy and tend to get these signs of inflammation like pain, swelling, redness in joints. In arthritis, every joint becomes painful hence we have to make sure that our body is getting a good amount of diet and exercise together.

A good diet and exercise can surely be helpful.

Eat:

The first thing in the morning is to start your day with something light in nature. Easy to digest is what your breakfast should be because they are the kind of nutrients that get absorbed easily. Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water which will help in flushing out all the toxins.

  • Antioxidants rich food like berries, tomatoes, oranges, lemons, mosumbi will help to treat the inflammation.
  • Take one teaspoon of gond with one glass of warm water in the morning. This will help in muscle repair and make the joints stronger by hastening the process.
  • Copper minerals help in treating inflammation to its best, store drinking water in a copper vessel to get the best of it.

​​Exercise:

  • Pranayam helps in detoxifying the body. Practising it early morning in an area that has good sunlight will help in improving blood circulation.
  • Suryanamaskar, daily 12 sets will help in increasing the blood circulation of your body. Tell her to do slowly, perhaps under expert guidance, without putting much pressure on the joint prone area.
  • Downward dog pose, chest expansion, and shoulder circles will definitely help you.

Meditation:

In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it. But with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything. The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleeping with the help of music to stay positive. In a room take a bowl of water and add two-three drops of orange or lavender essential oil. This will help in soothing you and the aroma will relax you and keep you away from any kind of disease.

Use a 15-minute relaxation technique before sleep by hearing a piece of soothing music and deep breathing will help in relaxing your mind.

A positive attitude will help you to deal with everything in life.

Sleep:

Sleeping for at least 7-8 hours is really helpful in dealing with any problem. Sleep is our body's natural response and helps the body to heal. Sleep relaxes the muscles and strengthens our body. During sleep, our body goes into a repair mechanism where it heals itself.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you.

Thank you.

हेलो,
कारण - आर्थराइटिस या गठिया जिसे संधिशोथ भी कहा जाता है एक प्रकार की जोड़ों की सूजन होती है। यह एक या एक से अधिक जोड़ो को प्रभावित कर सकती है। एचएलए बी 27 पॉजिटिव का मतलब हमेशा गठिया नहीं होता। शरीर में खराब प्रोटीनों के बनने, शरीर के भीतर के पर्यावरण में बदलाव से हो सकता है।

शरीर के किसी भी हिस्से में दर्द का मुख्य कारक होता है शरीर में बढ़ा हुआ अम्ल शरीर का हाजमा खराब होने पर हमारे शरीर में अम्ल की अधिकता हो जाती है शरीर में अम्ल की अधिकता होने पर रक्त संचार में कमी आती है और यह दर्द का कारक बनता है। प्राकृतिक चिकित्सा पद्धति को अपनाकर स्वास्थ्य लाभ उठा सकते हैं

3. प्रतिदिन अपने पेट पर खाने से 1 घंटे पहले या खाना खाने के 2 घंटे बाद गीले मोटे तौलिए को लपेटे एक तौलिया गिला करके उसको निचोड़ लें और हूं उस तौलिए को 20 मिनट तक अपने पेट पर लपेटकर रखें ऐसा करने से आपका पाचन तंत्र दुरुस्त होगा।

स्पर्श थरेपी करें। मालिश के ज़रिए भी कर सकते है।

तिल के तेल रीढ़ की हड्डी पर घड़ी की सीधी दिशा (clockwise) में और घड़ी की उलटी दिशा (anti clockwise) में मालिश करें। नरम हाथों से बिल्कुल भी प्रेशर नहीं दें।

4. हर 3 घंटे में लंबा गहरा श्वास अंदर लें उसको थोड़ी देर रोकें और फिर सांस को खाली करें। खाली करने के बाद फिर से रुके और फिर लंबा गहरा सांस ले। यह एक चक्र है ऐसा दिन में 10 चक्र करें केवल एक शर्त का पालन करें जब आप लंबा गहरा सांस ले रहे हैं तो अपनी रीढ़ की हड्डी को सीधा रखें ऐसा करने से आपके शरीर में ऑक्सीजन की मात्रा का बढ़ेगी और ऑक्सीजन का संचार सुचारू रूप से हो पाएगा।

5. खीरा 1/2 भाग धनिया पत्ती (10 ग्राम) पीस लें, 100 ml पानी मिला कर पीएँ। यह juice आप कई प्रकार के ले सकते हैं। पेठे (ash guard ) का जूस लें और कुछ नहीं लेना है। नारियल पानी भी ले सकते हैं। पालक  पत्ते धो कर पीस कर 100 ml पानी डाल पीएँ। दुब घास 25 ग्राम पीस कर छान कर 100 ml पानी में मिला कर पीएँ। कच्चे सब्ज़ी का जूस आपका मुख्य भोजन है। 2 घंटे बाद फल नाश्ते में लेना है।

रात के खाने में इस अनुपात से खाना खाएँ 2 कटोरी सब्ज़ी के साथ 1कटोरी चावल या 1रोटी लेएक बार पका हुआ खाना रात को 7 बजे से पहले लें।

6. एक नियम हमेशा याद रखें ठोस(solid) खाने को चबा कर तरल (liquid) बना कर खाएँ। तरल  को मुँह में घूँट घूँट पीएँ। खाना ज़मीन पर बैठ कर खाएँ। खाते वक़्त ना तो बात करें और ना ही TV और mobile को देखें।ठोस  भोजन के तुरंत बाद या बीच बीच में जूस या पानी ना लें। भोजन हो जाने के एक घंटे बाद तरल पदार्थ ले सकते हैं।

हफ़्ते में एक दिन उपवास करें। शाम तक केवल पानी लें, प्यास लगे तो ही पीएँ। शाम 5 बजे नारियल पानी और रात 8 बजे सलाद लें।

7. उपवास के अगले दिन किसी प्राकृतिक चिकित्सक के देख रेख में टोना लें। जिससे आँत की प्रदाह को शांत किया जा सके। एनिमा किट मँगा लें। यह किट ऑनलाइन मिल जाएगा। इससे 200 ml पानी गुदाद्वार से अंदर डालें और प्रेशर आने पर मल त्याग करें। ऐसा दिन में दो बार करना है अगले 21 दिनों के लिए। ये करना है ताकि शरीर में मोजुद विषाणु निष्कासित हो जाये। इसके बाद हफ़्ते में केवल एक बार लेना है उपवास के अगले दिन। टोना का फ़ायदा तभी होगा जब आहार शुद्धि करेंगे।

धन्यवाद।
