Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition which occurs as a result of the abnormal response of the immune system of the body. It is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints and other body tissues.
What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
It is an auto–immune disorder that is more commonly found in women and is also a cause of developing physical disability in them.
Symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis
The symptoms of the condition are morning joint stiffness, pain and swelling in the smaller joints of the wrist, feet, ankles and fingers. The stiffness and aching pain may occur in the whole body at times making the patient feel very helpless.
The condition initially occurs in phases and as the problem progresses, the pain becomes persistent. Slowly, the affected joints start to degrade and disability especially of the joints sets in. The disease may also cause inflammation in the lung tissues, skin, heart and bones.
Ayurvedic Point of View!
"Aamvata" is a condition explained in Ayurveda that leads to joint pains and body ache due to the accumulation of toxins or AMA in the body.
This condition can be compared to the degradation caused by the body's immune system which attacks its own body cells to destroy them, a condition that is commonly seen in rheumatoid arthritis.
