  • (daal) etc.
  • Use rock salt for preparing food
  • Maintaining optimum body weight will put less pressure on your joints
  • Light yogic exercise will ease the joint movement
  • Walk after lunch or dinner (approximately 100 steps)

Massage the affected area with sesame oil or any other Ayurvedic medicated oil, then do hot fomentation over the affected area. This will improve the blood circulation, reduce pain and increase the mobility of joints. Wear a kneecap, collar band or elastic bandage etc. to cover the affected area as recommended by the physician and keep it warm.

 Health guidelines to reduce inflammation & pain Rationale
  • Start your day with a glass of lukewarm water preferably along with 1 teaspoon of Triphala
This removes toxins from the body and cleanses the intestine, so that nutrients and other supplements (even drugs) are better absorbed via intestinal walls.

The removal of toxins from the body will tend to decrease inflammation of the joints. Toxins, if present in the body, get deposited around the joint area causing joint damage (e.g. uric acid crystals).
  • Eat vegetables like spinach, kale and gourds and limit the intake of high protein food like lentils (daal) etc.
Vegetables are full of fibers that will again help cleanse the system to work better and efficiently.

High protein food is heavy to digest even for a normal person with no joint problems. Therefore, it is advisable to consume food which is easily digestible, as people with joint problems cannot do as much physical activity to enhance their digestion. Also, if food remains undigested for a long period of time, it causes inflammation in the body.
  • Use rock salt for preparing food.
Rock salt is known to enhance digestion and reduce inflammation.
  • Maintaining optimum body weight will put less pressure on your joints.
Optimum body weight is advisable for all, and it is most important for a person with joint pain so that there is less pressure on the joints.
  • Light yogic exercise will ease the joint movement
Light yogic exercises are beneficial in the place of rigorous workouts to improve the mobility of joints
  • Walk after lunch or dinner (approximately 100 steps)
Walking after your meal will increase metabolism (undigested food, if remain accumulated in the body, can be converted into toxin, that may cause inflammation in the cells of the body including joints).
  • Massage the affected area with sesame oil or any other Ayurvedic medicated oil, then do hot fomentation over the affected area. This will improve the blood circulation, reduce pain and increase the mobility of joints. Wear a kneecap, collar band or elastic bandage etc. to cover the affected area as recommended by the physician and keep it warm
Massaging with oil will nourish the bones, improve blood circulation and increase the mobility of joints whereas covering the affected area to keep it warm will reduce inflammation and pain
