Study: Rheumatoid Arthritis & Ayurveda

This research survey study ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis & Ayurveda’ was conducted between 1977 and 1984 by the Ayurveda Trust in Tamilnadu, India, in collaboration with the WHO and ICMR. This study focuses on the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis in a group of patients. 33 out of 100 patients of this group, steroidal and non-steroidal, who were diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis by the allopathic system, had undergone Ayurvedic treatments for 1 year. The steroidal and non-steroidal groups were evaluated every 6 weeks, based on ARA criteria and blood tests and the results showed a faster recovery rate in the latter group. The final results confirmed the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatments in Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and especially the joints are on the rise in our modern society. Rheumatoid arthritis is particularly common. Those affected suffer from swollen and painful limbs and limited mobility. All of these symptoms make it difficult to participate in everyday life. This also leads to a reduction in quality of life.

Ayurveda offers relief for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers and can help manage symptoms and prevent flare-ups. With the right combination of diet, exercise and relaxation, it is possible to regain a good quality of life. The study ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis & Ayurveda’ proves just that. A fascinating and highly recommended read that will give both sufferers and their families new courage!
