    Suggest treatment for rheumatoid arthritis

Posted on Mon, 7 Jul 2014 in Lupus
Question: My mother has a severe Rheumatoid Arthiritis. She gets swelling on her joints and kees which is very painful. She has been through many medicines since she got arthiritis 15 years ago. Now she takes painkillers and anti swelling medicines. Because of these strong medicines this is affecting her lungs, kidneys and heart. Is there any way she can keep herself healthy. Her diet has always been well balanced and healthy.

Brief Answer:
You can start some ayurvedic medication.

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case with diligence.

Allopathic medication for rheumatoid arthritis may have lot of side effects.
You can start some ayurvedic medication which do not have side effect.
Ayurvedic has lot of diet restriction and result may take longer time.

When such patients come to our hospital I advise them blood test like RA factor, ACCP, ESR, complete blood count, to see for prognosis and severity.

There is good role of healthy diet and achieve correction through it.
You need to avoid bakery items, high protein diet, and curd, milk and milk products, on veg.
Avoid cold and fermented food, bitter and sour food.
Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, salads.
Ayurvedic capsule like foursteps or arnopen can help her.
Many of my patients get relief by yoga pranayama and XXXXXXX XXXXXXX so you can also tell her to do that.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
