RA, or Amavata is a chronic inflammatory joint disease. Amavata is a kapha vataja vyadhi affecting all joints. It is caused by the degeneration of agni, which results in the production of ama (toxins), and this ama gets circulated all over the body by means of vitiated vata and gets dislodged in kapha sthana (amasaya, sandhi, etc.), starting with pain, swelling, and stiffness of small and big joints. Prolonged arthritic conditions can even cause deformity of joints.

Ayurveda has certain effective ways to cure this condition. The first step is normalising the impaired agni by using langhana (alpabhojana), deepana, and pachana dravyas, and later detoxification is done with ayurvedic panchakarma procedures like vasti and virechana, which eliminate amatva from the body. External therapies like Dhanyamladhara, valukaswedam, and Choornapinda Swedam are highly effective in treating this condition. Yoga, Pathyaaharavihara, and ayurvedic therapies can help improve quality of life and restrict the progression of disease.
