Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is modern term for the disease prevailed in older days also. In Ayurveda it is termed as Aamavaat. In modern science there is enough evidence we can see about cause of the disease. Though they mention that there is unknown etiology for RA, there is enough evidence coming these days that RA is lifestyle related and the prevalence we are seeing these days is very high because of lifestyle related only, but it takes long time to get manifested after long practice of wrong way of lifestyle, either food or the actions we are doing in our daily life. There is a strong evidence of relation between mind and body, emerging field called psychoneuroimmunology, clearly relates mind to somatic diseases like RA. Though a lot of inventions and discoveries are still to come, this field looks to very promising as per root cause is concerned.

According to Ayurveda, RA is lifestyle related only; it gives elaborate explanation about cause and pathogenesis also about treatment. Ayurveda gives equal importance to both body and mind. Lifestyle correction is mind related only, but after manifestation of RA approach is different. Here comes intervention to both body and mind. Unlike treatment of body according to modern medicine, in Ayurveda, treatment is by whole body purification as panchakarma and also local treatment by oral medications. Looking at whole Ayurveda perspective, the diseases like RA are preventable and treatable and also it is curable.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks flexible (synovial) joints. The process produces an inflammatory response of the capsule around the joints (synovium) secondary to swelling (hyperplasia) of synovial cells, excess synovial fluid, and the development of fibrous tissue (pannus) in the synovium. The pathology of the disease process often leads to the destruction of articular cartilage and ankylosis of the joints..

Causes, incidence, and risk factors : The cause of RA is unknown. It is an autoimmune disease, which means the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. RA can occur at any age, but is more common in middle age. Women get RA more often than men. Infection, genes, and hormone changes may be linked to the disease.

Symptoms: RA usually affects joints on both sides of the body equally. Wrists, fingers, knees, feet, and ankles are the most commonly affected. The disease often begins slowly, usually with only minor joint pain, stiffness, and fatigue.

Joint symptoms may include:
  • Morning stiffness, which lasts more than 1 hour, is common. Joints may feel warm, tender, and stiff when not used for an hour.
  • Joint pain is often felt on the same joint on both sides of the body.
  • Over time, joints may lose their range of motion and may become deformed.

Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease or osteoarthrosis, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and sub-chondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. A variety of causes : hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical, may initiate processes leading to loss of cartilage. When bone surfaces become less protected by cartilage, bone may be exposed and damaged. As a result of the decreased movement, secondary to pain; regional muscles may atrophy, and ligaments may be torn off. The main symptom is pain, causing loss of ability and often stiffness. "Pain" is generally described as a sharp ache, or a burning sensation in the associate muscles and tendons. OA can cause a crackling noise (called "crepitus") when the affected joint is moved or touched, and patients may experience muscle spasm and contractions in the tendons. Occasionally, the joints may also be filled with fluid. Humid and cold weather increases the pain in many patients. OA commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and the large weight bearing joints, such as the hips and knees, although in theory, any joint in the body can be affected. As OA progresses, the affected joints appear larger, are stiff and painful, and usually feel better with gentle use but worse with excessive or prolonged use, thus distinguishing it from rheumatoid arthritis. OA at the toes leads to the formation of bunions, rendering them red or swollen. Some people notice these physical changes before they experience any pain. OA is the most common cause of joint effusion, sometimes called water in the knee in lay terms, an accumulation of excess fluid in or around the knee joint.
