A 62-year-old female patient was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 10 years ago, experiencing stiffness and swelling in her fingers, wrists, and knees, and finding it difficult to perform daily tasks. Seeking a holistic approach, she visited our Ayurveda clinic where we recommended a treatment plan that included Panchakarma therapy, herbal medications, and lifestyle modifications.
The patient underwent 14 days of Panchakarma therapy, which included massages, steam therapy, and herbal therapies, to eliminate toxins from her body, balance doshas, and promote healing. She also received herbal medications to manage her symptoms and improve her overall health.
Following the therapy, the patient reported a significant reduction in joint pain, stiffness, and swelling, as well as feeling more energetic and able to perform daily tasks with greater ease. Ongoing herbal medications and lifestyle modifications were recommended to maintain these improvements.
Over the next few months, the patient continued to receive Ayurvedic treatments and followed the recommended lifestyle modifications, reporting a further improvement in symptoms and reduced dependence on NSAIDs. She was also able to engage in more physical activity and lead a more active lifestyle.
This case study highlights the effectiveness of Ayurveda treatments, such as Panchakarma therapy, herbal medications, and lifestyle modifications, in managing arthritis symptoms and improving quality of life. Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to treating arthritis, promoting overall wellness, and balancing the body’s natural energies.
