Helo Sir.,

My mother aged about 63, She is diabetic since 18 yrs and it is almost normal most of the times..she is suffering with Rheumatoid arthritis since 3 yrs..she was under allopathic medication upto jan 2014..She had suffered with severe urine infection and temperory renal failure (ACT),and undergone dialysis in august 2013..after that we discontined allopathic and started keral ayurveda treatment from april 2014..But no improvement in condition...ESR is always 100 to 135..I want to know whether i can go for allopathic? or is there any permannat treatment for rhematoid arthritis and ESR in ayurveda..?..She is suffering with severe pinching pains ..

I am not interested in allopathy, because taking 10 to 13 tablets per day leading to vomitings, and damage of kidney ..if there is no option for me except allopathy..then i can go for allopathy..please suggest me..

Thank you Venu

Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

I understand that you have to think about the safety, efficacy, side effects and cost effective treatments in managing chronic condition that requires a lifetime treatment. It is the duty of a doctor for the well being of the patient irrespective of the system of medicine. You can give your mother the Ayurvedic medicines and please let me know after a month. Meanwhile when the pain is unbearable, allopathy medicines can be taken. Regular checkups must be done with blood tests like kidney function tests. I have practically seen many cases that repsond to Ayurvedic medicines thus lowering the high ESR.

Medicines like Amrthothara Kasayam - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily, MahaYograj guggulu, Mahasudarshan tablet can be taken. Warm Kottanchukkadi thailam can be applied externally to the painful joints. PanchaKarma Ayurvedic treatments like Oil massage, Elai Kizhi, Pizhichal, Navara Kizhi helps to reduce the pain.

Eat healthy fresh cooked foods. Try to include cinnamon, ginger, garlic, turmeric, tulasi, pepper and coriander. Reduce fried foods, cold refrigerated foods, salt, carbonated beverages and sugar. Regular gentle exercises are very important as they improve the flow of synovial fluid and nourish the joints including the synovial membrane. Try to exercise all the joints including the finger joints by flexing and extending them. Yogasanas like Padahastasana, Dhanurasana, Pavanamuktasana, Trikonasana, Matsyasana, Vajrasana, Paschimottasana can be practised. Take complete rest when there is more pain. Meditation and Pranayamam also helps to reduce the stress and improve the pain threshold which helps to manage the pain in a better way.

Being a c/c diabetic ,she is having a hypoimmune state.That is why the condition doesn't improve with both the treatments.so we have to address that condition first.I think immunity boosters will be a good choice.Indukantha kashayam 15 ml with 60 ml luke warm water twice daily (6 am and 6 pm)with 1 chandraprabha gulika mixed in it.It will correct urinary problems.Ellumnisadi choorna can be used for external application with luke warm milk twice daily at the painful areas.Wipe out after 30 minutes.It will improve the pain.Mild sudation therapies can be done,since severe sudation is contraindicarted in diabetic patients.Ela kizhi can be done using Balaguloochyadi taila.Shaddharana choorna should be taken at bed time in warm water.Allopathic doctors use immunosupressants like methotrexate for the treatment of RA.they suppress the immune system and thus arrest the disease activity.That's why when the drugs are stopped the disease reccurs.But our principle is different.We improves your immunity and thus prevents the reccurence.

Add Thulasi,Garlic.turmeric and pepper in food.they directly stimulate immune system.Avoid food kept in fridge and cold items.eat freshly cooked food only.Wish you a speedy recovery.

The nature of the pain will be severe and as it is an autoimmune condition, there will be relapse and remission. Yes, you can continue with the prescribed.. Read more
