In Ayurveda, rheumatoid arthritis is defined as amavata, which leads to the impairment of the vata dosha and the accumulation of ama in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can be slowed down by the use of medicine, but we cannot cure the disease. Treatment in Ayurveda has no side effects, but allopathic treatment may lead to organ damage or serious injury. So let’s see the natural holistic approach towards Rheumatoid arthritis and its management too.



Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune and inflammatory disorder. The immune system makes antibodies that attack the bacteria and viruses in our body, but in the case of RA, the joint surrounding tissue is mistakenly attacked by the antibodies, causing a thin layer of cells, which leads to inflammation and also releases chemicals that damage bones, etc. It also affects organs like the lungs, heart, and eyes by affecting other tissues. It commonly occurs in middle age, although it can occur at any age.


As this condition is autoimmune in nature so it has no exact cause but there are some risk factors which trigger this condition.

  • Autoimmune: antibodies that attack healthy tissues mistakenly, which leads to the layering of cells.
  • Genetics: There is some evidence that RA can be due to genetics, which means it can run in families. For example, it can transfer from father to son or daughter.
  • Hormones: It can also occur due to an imbalance of hormones. Mainly caused by the imbalance of oestrogen, this is the reason that RA is more common in women than men.

Some evidence also says that smoking and a lack of vitamin D are also reasons for rheumatoid arthritis.


In the early phase, RA affects the smaller joints first. For example, fingers, toes, etc. Below are the symptoms

  • Stiffness of the Joints
  • Tingling and numbness
  • Fever
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Redness of the joint
  • Trouble while moving or walking
  • Weight loss


  • Joint damage
  • Cardiovascular Disease: Heart Attack and Stroke. It occurs in about ⅓ patients with RA due to the use of NSAIDS.


Following are the diagnosis of RA

  • Physical examination: The doctor usually examines the joints, the way of walking, rashes on the skin, etc. All of these are examined by the doctor in the early phase of RA.
  • Rheumatoid factor: The level of Rheumatoid factor in the blood indicates rheumatoid arthritis. The normal range of RF in blood is 0–20 u/ml.
  • Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (anti-CCP): It is also found in the blood; if the level of anti-CCP is more than 20 u/ml, it indicates RA.
  • C-reactive protein is also a type of blood test that helps in the measurement of inflammation in our body. If it is positive along with other tests, then it leads to RA.


As we know, treatment cannot cure this disease, but it can slow down the disease progression and give relief from inflammation and pain.


In modern,

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs: these types of medicines are used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Nsaids are commonly used in this condition.
  • DMARDS: disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs. These drugs are the first choice to treat RA and the management of other connective tissue. Immunosuppressants and TNFα inhibitors are commonly used.
