Herbal Remedies For Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis


Juvenile idiopathic arthritis was earlier called Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It is the most common arthritis occurring in children below the age of 16. The major complaints occurring in Juvenile idiopathic arthritis or JIA are swelling, stiffness and pain in joints. Symptoms may be present for a few months in some children while in others it can be for many years. However JIA should not be taken lightly as in some cases it can cause serious complications like eye inflammation, growth problems and damaged joints. This write up is all about JIA and its Ayurvedic management and treatment.

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis


Juvenile arthritis is represented by the inflammation of one or more joints which tends to occur before 16 years of age. Girls are more prone to get affected by JIA than boys and mostly the teenagers or preschool aged children are affected by it. Signs and symptoms of JIA depends upon the type of the disease one is suffering from. Timely diagnosis and correct treatment can help in getting out of JIA and have a good prognosis, however in certain cases complications may arise.


According to Ayurveda the three doshas, i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha govern the health of a human being and it is necessary to be in equilibrium in order to have proper health. Imbalance of any of the three dosha can result in various diseases. Here in JIA Vata dosha starts to get accumulated in the body because it cannot be eliminated naturally from the body owing to certain reasons like hereditary factors, improper diet or sedentary lifestyle. This accumulation of Vata dosha results in inflammation of the joints and their related signs and symptoms.


The common signs and symptoms of JIA are:

  • Pain - A child would complain about the pain in the joints or if they do not tell you to notice the limps (without any injury) especially when he/she gets up from the bed after a nap or in the morning.
  • Swelling - Swelling of affected joints is commonly seen mainly first noticed in the bigger joints like knee joints.
  • Stiffness - Walk of the child becomes clumsy especially when getting up after a long rest like after sleep.
  • In certain cases high grade fever, rashes on the upper body or swollen lymph nodes can be seen. These complaints become worse in the evening.

Just like other types of arthritis, there will be times when symptoms are fully flared up and sometimes symptoms can be minimal.


The exact cause of JIA or Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is not known. It is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system of the body attacks its own cells and tissues causing damage to them. Certain environmental and hereditary factors are responsible for it.


There can be many reasons for joint pain which needs to be ruled out in case of diagnosis JIA. Certain tests are required to do so like ESR, C-reactive protein, Antinuclear antibody, Rheumatoid factor, X-rays and MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging).


Conventional treatment for JIA includes a combination of medicines that are used to relieve swelling, pain, stiffness improving function of the joint and minimizing the damage to the joint. Medications include Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, Corticosteroids etc. However all of these medications have certain side effects which can interfere with normal growth of a child and decrease immunity.


Ayurvedic treatment aims at annihilating the disease from root cause without causing any harm to the body. Medicines in Ayurveda are prepared from herbs which possess natural healing properties and can be taken even for a long time without any harm. Herbal remedies balance the tridosha and restore health.
