Abstract

According to one report out of every 100,000 people, 41 are diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis every year.1 Rheumatoid Arthritis does not have a cure at this time. Many new treatments have been developed over the last 30 years, but none of them “cure” Rheumatoid Arthritis. Instead, they aim to lower inflammation and pain, prevent joint damage, and slow the progression of the disease.

In Ayurveda it can be compared with aamavata characterized by pricking pain in the joints, body pain, fever, heaviness of the body, anorexia, etc2 .A 35yr patient was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was undergoing DMARDs and NSAIDs treatment which was proved to be ineffective who was later admitted to SDMCA-Udupi for the same, treated according to the aamavata protocol and had significant improvement in the condition and on further follow up with regular medication his condition was better.
