Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an Auto Immune disorder. If the immune system starts to attack our own healthy tissues, it’s called an Auto Immune disorder.

In RA the immune system causes damage, throughout the body, especially the joints. In the case of RA usually, both sides of the body are affected.

Ayurvedic Perspective

Ayurveda has an interesting take on RA. The same condition called Rheumatoid arthritis can be considered as Ama Vata or Vata Raktha or Sandhi Gata Vata. Symptomatically all the 3 are more or less the same, but the origin of the disease differentiates the category. The treatment for each category is very different. In fact, the treatments are the complete opposite for Ama Vata and Vata Raktha. It’s very tricky to diagnose and the Vaidya must have a thorough theoretical knowledge and good practical knowledge.

Diet and Lifestyle Advice

It highly depends on the type of RA.
However, some basic things to be avoided are

  1. Curds
  2. Day sleep
  3. Overeating
  4. Cool drinks


Depending on the stage and chronicity, treatments are decided. Ayurveda has a wide range of herbal and herbo-mineral medicines which have great capability to naturally subside the swelling and pain.

Treatments like Ela kizhi, Podi kizhi, Sastika shali kizhi, Janu Vasti, Abhyangam, Sarvanga taila dhara, Takradhara, Virechana panchakarma and many more have a good track record of treating RA.

Vasti panchakarma for RA

The treatment of RA is incomplete without doing Vasti. Especially for chronic cases, Vasti does wonders. In many cases, especially for the acute ones, instant relief at the end of Vasti therapy has been observed.

Medicines are prescribed by the doctor after a thorough examination of the patient. Treatments must be done under the supervision or advice of a certified Ayurvedic Doctor and not based on self-judgment.

What Our Patients Say About Us?


Nithya AS

I found to have diabetes just 3 months back. My sugar was around 200+ .I didn’t want to go to any alloathic doctor as they will ask to take medicine life long. I saw Dr Aravind in youtube and was impressed by his speech. I went to him in Jan and he gave me Ayurvedic medicines and diet chart for diabetes reversal. It’s been 3 months now and now all medicines are stopped and as he promised my sugar levels are 105 fasting and 93 post prandial. I was shocked to see the results. All diabetes patients can go to him blindly. Just listen to his instructions. Your diabetes will be reversed.

Myself and my husband tested positive last month, and we came to know about ayurshi ayurveda thru our family member, and we have started taking ayurveda medicines from day one, within 7 days started feeling back to normal, Special thanks to Dr Arvind bharadwaj and team for providing constant support over phone for any kind of clarifications and medicines delivery also on time. Now we both completely recovered. We need to follow strict diet as prescribed by doctor along with medicines and belief.
