Ayurvedic treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis at Satmaya Retreat

According to Ayurveda,the major reason for arthritis is lack of digestive fire(Agni) and accumulation of toxins(Ama) in the body .Generally this condition is due to deprived digestion and weakened colon, results in accumulation of waste matter and toxins in our body. Most common type of arthritis are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis , first one affects the cartilage of bones and later one affects the joints. Osteoarthritis is considered as the prevalent form of arthritis across the world.

Root cause of arthritis varies from person to person. At Satmaya Retreat, we provide individual care for every patient, which includes medications and ayurveda diet. Over the years we have developed our own unique treatment methods, combination of various therapies, medications and yoga. Our treatment is very effective compared to conventional medical treatments.
