Ayurvedic Treatment of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a form of arthritis that occurs in the children under the age of 17 years. It is also known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis and is the most common type of arthritis in children. This type of arthritis may cause several serious complications if left untreated. Hence, the treatment is required. The Ayurvedic treatment is a great option to treat this arthritis.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF JUVENILE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

The symptoms of this type of arthritis usually last for six weeks, but some children may experience the symptoms for few months. In some children the symptoms may last for their entire life. The common symptoms of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis are listed below:

  • Pain in the joints
  • Swelling and inflammation in the joints
  • Stiffness in the joints

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF JUVENILE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

This joint problem occurs when the immune system of the body attacks its own cells and tissues. The exact reason behind this is still unknown, but heredity seems to trigger this condition. A family history of arthritis may pose a risk for developing this joint disorder. Some environmental factors such as viruses may trigger this condition.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT OF JUVENILE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

Ayurveda offers a natural way to take care of the body. Ayurveda says, health problems are the results of the imbalances in the doshas (vata, pitta and kapha). Hence, these doshas must be in balance in order to keep our body free from disease.

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused due to the aggravation of vata dosha of the body. Accumulation of ama in the body is another cause of this arthritis. Ama is a toxic product of improper digestion. This toxic product circulates in an entire body and gets collected at the weaker sites. When it gets deposited in the joints and with the aggravation of vata dosha, then this condition leads to disease which is known as aamvata. Arthritis is known as Aamvata in Ayurveda.

DIET AND ARTHRITIS

Diet plays an important role in managing the symptoms of joint problems. Here are some dietary recommendations for patients suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Foods such as vegetable juices and soups, are easy to digest and do not make gas and hence are good ones. Juice of mixed vegetables such as carrot, beat root and cucumber is highly beneficial.
  • A person should eat a lot of green salad with an addition of salt and lemon juice.
  • Fruits such as apples, papaya, oranges and grapes are great for managing the symptoms.
  • Cooking foods with spices like cumin, ginger, coriander, garlic, fennel and turmeric can be helpful.
  • Hot, spicy and fried foods should be avoided as much as possible.  Some foods, including sweets and wind forming foods should also be taken in a limited amount. Wind forming foods are spinach, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, okra and potatoes.

Addison's disease (Hypocortisolism) Ayurvedic treatment

Hypocortisolism is also known as Addison's disease. It is a kind of hormonal disorder that affects the endocrine system of the body and causes less production of steroid hormones by the adrenal glands. Steroid hormones such as glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids are required for the normal functioning of the body. Although the disorder is not so common, but if it is left untreated, it may cause several complications. Ayurveda offers a great way to manage this disorder.

AYURVEDA AND MANAGEMENT OF DISEASE

Ayurveda, one of a powerful system of healing, provides a natural way to cure any disease. It is developed in India, thousands of years ago. Ayurveda believes that any health problem occurs when there is imbalance in dosha or doshas. There are three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) which are also known as the energies of the body. As they are three in number, these doshas are also known as tridoshas. Ayurveda helps to balance the aggravated doshas and thereby helps in the management of the disease. Balancing of doshas not only involves Ayurvedic medicines, but also a healthy diet and a healthy living style too. Exercise is also given equal importance by Ayurveda in order to maintain a healthy body.

HYPOCORTISOLISM

Hypocortisolism occurs when androgen levels in the body is lower than normal and this condition is more prominent in women. There occurs a deficiency of cortisol in the body due to underactive adrenal glands.

CAUSES OF HYPOCORTISOLISM

Hypocortisolism is also known as Addison's disease. This disorder is caused by the low levels of cortisol or aldosterone or both. The low cortisol levels may be due to low adrenocorticotropic hormone level which is in turn a result of the pituitary gland. These low level of cortisol may occur due to:

  • Autoimmune conditions in which immune system attacks the adrenal glands of the body.
  • Some infections, such as those of tuberculosis and fungi may pose a risk for developing this disorder.
  • Cancer of the adrenal gland is another main cause of Hypocortisolism.
  • Genetic causes for Hypocortisolism involve congenital disorders such as Adrenal hypoplasia. It is a condition in which there is an underdevelopment of the adrenal gland from birth.
  • Sometimes, surgical removal of the adrenal glands may cause Hypocortisolism.
  • The anterior pituitary may be diseased due to infection, cancer or radiation therapy. Underactive pituitary gland may cause ACTH deficiency.

SYMPTOMS OF HYPOCORTISOLISM

The common symptoms of Addison's disease are:

  • Hypoglycemia (Low blood glucose levels).
  • Muscle weakness, muscle aches and joint pains.
  • Weight loss, Fatigue, Nausea, Vomiting.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Depression and irritability.

Pellegrini Stieda Syndrome - Causes, Symptoms and Ayurvedic treatment

Ayurvedic treatment is the natural way to treat Pellegrini stieda syndrome. With the Ayurvedic treatment, it is possible to avoid surgery. It is one of a rare joint problem and is easy to manage with the help of Ayurvedic treatment.

What is Pellegrini Stieda Syndrome

Pellegrini-Stieda syndrome is a condition of knee pain that occurs due to the deposition of calcium on the inner (medial) side of the knee. The calcification occurs at the junction where the medial collateral ligament (MCL) is connected to the femur. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is the ligament that connects the thigh bone and shin bone together.

CAUSES OF PELLEGRINI-STIEDA SYNDROME

The Pellegrini stieda syndrome usually occurs in the patients who have often suffered with the medial collateral ligament injury.

SYMPTOMS OF PELLEGRINI STIEDA SYNDROME

The swelling, inflammation and pain in the knee are the symptoms of the Pellegrini stieda syndrome. A person suffering from Pellegrini Stieda Syndrome will have difficulty in straightening, bending, twisting and moving the knee and these knee movements will be too painful. There may be the formation of lump inside the knee and knee becomes tender.

LIGAMENT INJURY IN AYURVEDA

In general, stretching of a ligament leads to sprain in the ligament. Ligament sprain may involve single or more ligaments. Ligaments are such tough tissues that connects two or more bones together. These fibrous and strong wire like bands attaches the two or more joint bones together. Ligaments support the joints and keep them in their proper place and this is the main role of the ligaments. Ligament helps in lifting, lowering, or rotating the arms as well as the legs.

Ligament is related to mamsa dhatu, in Ayurveda. There are three doshas of the body which are considered as the body’s energies in Ayurveda. Injury in the ligament causes imbalance in the two doshas of the body. These doshas are Vata dosha and Pitta dosha. Ayurveda offers an Ayurvedic treatment for the ligament injury. The Ayurvedic treatment aims at reducing the pain, inflammation and swelling of the ligament. Ayurveda helps to restore the affected ligament to its normal health.

HOW AYURVEDA HELPS TO TREAT JOINT PROBLEMS?

Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care that has its roots in India. Ayurveda offers a natural way to take care of the body. There are two main reasons, according to Ayurveda, that are responsible for the joint disorders. Weakness in the joints is the first reason behind the joint disorders. A poorly nourished joints are more prone to the injury.

Joint problems may occur due to the overload of toxic substances in the joints. Accumulation of the toxic substances in turn, leads to the formation of more toxins in the body. These toxins are known as “ama”, in Ayurveda. Ama are the waste products of the incomplete digestion. Ayurveda says, that stiffness and heaviness in the joints are caused by this accumulation of the ama in the joints. If this ama is allowed to stay in the joints for a long time, then it can cause several complications. If, it is left untreated, then it leads to painful and swollen joints. This condition may get worse in damp and cold weather.

Here are some ways that helps reduce the amount of ama (toxins) in the body:

  • We should take warm meals that can easily be digested.
  • Excessive intake of white sugar and alcohol should be avoided. Instead take, unprocessed raw honey. This raw honey helps to scrape away ama from the body.
  • Do not include Dairy products such as ice cream and cheese in your diet.
  • A thin layer of castor oil should be applied to the affected joints before applying a heating pad in order to support joint comfort and scrape ama.
  • Bowels should be emptied regularly and colon should always be clean.
  • Hot water should be preferred over the cold water. Tea that is prepared using dry ginger root should be taken as this tea is beneficial for reducing ama.
  • Ujjayi and Nadi Shodana pranayama are good to remove the toxins from the body.

MODERN TREATMENT FOR PELLEGRINI-STIEDA SYNDROME

Initial treatment for the Pellegrini stieda syndrome generally involve a combination of anti-inflammatory medications. A proper rest is required. Sometimes, steroid injections are required to reduce the swelling in the joints. These steroid injections may cause infection and bleeding.

HERBAL TREATMENT FOR PELLEGRINI STIEDA SYNDROME

Diet for Diabetic Kidney Disease

People suffering from Diabetes have a very high level of blood glucose in their blood. And, this affects the kidneys to a huge extent. The function of the kidneys is to filter the blood and remove the toxic materials from the body. But, if kidneys fail to function properly, toxins get accumulated in the body. And, they don't leave the body. The fluids and wastes start building up. This situation is also called Diabetic Nephropathy. If the situation persists, the damage may be severe. And, this leads to chronic Kidney failure. This is also known as Diabetic Kidney Disease. Symptoms of this disorder include frequent urination, nausea, fatigue, high blood pressure, puffiness around eyes, loss of appetite, weakness, itching, vomiting, easy bruises, breath shortness, poor appetite, insomnia, itching, dry skin, lack of concentration and upset stomach.

Is It Possible To Avoid Dialysis In Kidney Failure?

It is a question of multimillion dollars because not coming back to life seems when someone in on dialysis. So, why dialysis and how we get into the dialysis. Is it possible to avoid dialysis in kidney failure? So there are many questions regarding kidney failure.

Kidney- an organ of purification

Kidney removes waste and toxic products from blood by a process known as filtration. It works several times in a day. The main functions of Kidney are

  • Remove waste and toxic material from blood.
  • Control body fluid balance
  • Regulate the balance of electrolytes
Avoid dialysis, kidney failure, how to avoid dialysis

What happens during kidney failure?

The major reason of kidney failure is due to buildup of waste products in the body and lead into

  • Weakness
  • Shortness in breath
  • Lethargy and confusion
  • Inability to remove potassium from blood
  • leading into abnormal heart beat and sudden death

Treatment

There are various factors leading into kidney failure and treating underlying causes is the first step in correcting the kidney abnormalities.
Diagnosis are based on the various test such as creatinine, BUN (Blood Urea and Nitrogen), glomerular filtration rate (GFR). But kidney failure is a slow and progressive and ends with the dialysis if not cured properly.

Dialysis

When kidney stops working then an artificial system is involved to filtrate the waste material from blood, which is known as dialysis. The dialysis is done by using a special fluid known as dialysate, which is a mixture of pure water and chemicals that are used to pull wastes from blood without removing essential molecules required by the body. In this situation patient has to go several time in a week to hospital.

Is there any alternate?

Our nature is diversified with natural herbs possessing highly valuable medicinal properties. They are like Rasayana and rejuvenate the body. They are rich in anti-oxidants, which can effectively remove the toxic compounds from body and possesses anti-inflammatory properties, induces kidney's function and regulates the electrolyte concentration. In Ayurveda there are various herbs described to treat the kidney failure, which works on the basis of treating underlying factors causing kidney failure. Along with medicinal herbs there is a need of strict diet chart recommended by experts to produce better results.

There are various herbs described which effectively remove the accumulated fluid, reduces the creatinine level, balances pH, electrolytes concentration and balances body fluid. In spite of these they effectively control sugar level in the blood, which is a most prominent factor causing kidney failure generally observed in diabetic patients. The other underlying factors such as liver disorders, cystitis, renal calculi, and cardiovascular disorders are effectively treated to control the kidney failure.

There various herbs present in the nature, which acts as natural remedy to treat kidney diseases such as Gokshur (Tribulus terrestris), Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa), Palaash (Butea monosperma), Rakt Chandan (P. santalinus). They are key player in treating underlying causes of kidney failure. They help in maintaining efficient functioning of kidney and urinary tract. They are;

  • Coolant, soothes walls of urinary tract and promote the flow of urine
  • Highly efficient in removing stones, stops bleeding and exhibits the antiseptic effect
  • Nourishing and strengthening the kidneys and reproductive organs.
  • Treating cystitis, renal calculi (kidney stones)
  • Ensuring proper functioning of liver and improves digestion by maintaining healthy metabolism and effectively removes toxins from the body.
  • Urinary alkaliser, relieves from pain during micturition, and natural cure for renal failure

Apart from given herbal medicines, there is a need of commitment from the patient side to control on his lifestyle which needs a balance in diet, mental stress, and physical activities.

Diet recommended are;

  • Drink plenty of fresh sweet or sour fruit juices such as apple, oranges, pineapple, lime, grape etc., carrot juice or diluted juices of other vegetable juices esp. wheat grass, celery, and parsley.
  • Avoid sugar, meat, sugar, dairy products, wheat products, and processed food with added chemicals.
  • Avoid salt. Because too much salt may result in high blood pressure leading into weakening or damaging of kidneys.
  • Avoid soft drinks, coffee, alcohol, tea (except herbal tea), and nicotine.
  • Be moderate with rhubarb, spinach, strawberries, chocolate, wheat bran, nuts, and beets foods, which can raise the oxalane levels in the urine leading into higher risk for calcium stones.
  • Fruits such as apples, watermelons, papayas, pomegranates, and grapes are recommended.
  • Vegetables like kidney beans (soaked), asparagus, parsley, watercress, pumpkin, soy beans, sprouts, legumes, celery, cucumbers and green vegetables are recommended.

The only concern during kidney failure is to help kidney to remove the waste and toxic molecules from the body, maintaining pH and electrolyte concentration as well as body fluid balance. Which could only be done by balancing lifestyle including diet. Then possibility of avoiding dialysis is at higher rate.
