The ends of the bones are covered by a tough elastic tissue called cartilage, which keeps bones from rubbing against each other. The joint is enclosed by a synovial membrane which releases synovial fluid into the joint space. To name few conditions of arthritis described in Ayurvedic epics "Amavata, Sandhivata, Raktavata...
Ayurveda holds the view that in-built toxins of the body due to irregular diet and lifestyle, improper digestion, absorption of food end up with the formation of "AMA" If nothing is done to dissolve Ama, it sits in the joints for longer time, and eventually converts into amavisha a more reactive and irrigative in nature. Amavisha causes the joints swollen and painful. In this circumstance it mixes with the natural lubricating fluids of the joint - "Sleshaka Kapha" This causes more stiffness, restricted mobility and disturbs circulation in the joint. If Ama, Amavisha, Sleshma stay for long unattended, eventually the structure of bone and joint get damaged. Ayurveda says we can prevent arthritis if we follow a disciplined lifestyle, planned approach towards diet and way of living.
