Thanks for posting your query.

Do not worry, your sister can get married & lead a healthy happy life.

It is an autoimmune disease, which means the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue and is also a long-term disease that leads to inflammation of the joints and surrounding tissues. So she needs to continue these Disease modifying anti- rheumatic drugs(DMARD) to prevent recurrence of disease.

Your sister needs your support, life style modification, education about the disease, regular exercise, and physical therapy to fight the disease better.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.

hello madam if you prefer allopathy then patient have to take it regularly.
in ayurveda its described as "aamvata" treatment include ruksha sweda(stem) virechan(airand oil)
guggul kalpas having awesome result in such cases.
after treatment she definately get need to take medicines bring back smile on her face.
aama is like toxic in body along with disturbed function of vaat.
so its better to take ayurvedic treatment for aamvaata.
ask for us for detail line of treatment.we need whole history eating habit lifestyle etc.
have a nice day madam take care!
