Yoga is recommended for people with joint inflammation or arthritis. In the case of certain individuals with different sorts of arthritis, studies have shown that consistent yoga practice can lessen joint pain, improve flexibility of the joint and release the stress and strain to provide better rest. Yoga comes with a wide range of practices; however, for the most part, it includes adopting specific bodily postures. It also includes breathing and meditation exercises.

Some of the yoga postures to cure arthritis are as follows:


Sun salutations: They are the perfect way to begin a day. They can be reflective and calming as you develop the strength to breathe fresh air. Stand with both feet touching, and afterwards, join your hands, palm-to-palm, and place them on your chest. Breathe out and raise your arms upward. Gradually twist backwards and extend your arms over the head. Unwind your neck and breathe in. You must keep in mind that it is one breath for every movement.


Kid's pose and child's pose plus: This is a truly gentle and simple approach to stretch the lower back. Get into the stance by dropping down onto your knees, spread your knees wide and join your toes. Place your hips back onto your feet or heels and stretch your arms forward onto the ground.


Bovine pose (cow pose): Get on all fours with your hands; keep your wrists directly under the shoulders, and spread your fingers wide. Your knees need to be at the hips' width and directly under your hips. Point your abdomen upwards, as your shoulder bones push down towards your abdomen, and tilt your pelvis up and back so that you are sitting.


Furious cat: Turn around the cow pose to do the furious cat pose. From all fours, pull your belliy in and your back arches into a back bend. Point your hips back toward your lower legs to build the space between every vertebra.


Prostrate twisting: Bending should be very useful, but if the bending or twisting brings on any pain, leave it quickly. Lie on your back, draw your knees toward your abdomen, and wrap your arms around your legs, giving yourself a little hug. Shake yourself from side-to-side or forward and backward.


Bridge pose: Lie in a straight position on the floor, twist your knees, and set your feet on the floor. Breathe out and press the inner parts of your feet and your arms into the floor. Push your tailbone up, tighten your hips, and lift them off the floor until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Keep your knees right above your heels and lift the upper part of your hips toward your stomach.

Blame it on your lifestyle, environmental risks or genetics, certain diseases can become inevitable and could even cause disability. One such disease, arthritis, has become a common illness and could target people at a younger age. This painful disease is caused by degenerative conditions which are marked by inflammation in the joints that causes pain and stiffness. There are medications that can help in treating arthritis but these conventional methods are strong, immune suppressing and could even damage the gut. Moreover, they could temporarily relieve the symptoms and are unable to address the root cause. But fret not. If you or your family member is suffering from this painful disease, here's help. We have mentioned a few natural ways that will help in reducing the symptoms and can gradually treat arthritis.

HEAL YOUR GUT: According to health experts, inflammation gets originated in the gut, hence it’s important for you to heal your gut health. You must know healthy food choices that are beneficial for your digestive system. For instance: Eliminate foods that can cause arthritis, such as dairy products, sugar, eggs, soy and gluten. If you feel a little better, it indicates that one of these food items was the culprit. After sometime, about three weeks later, start introducing these food items but one at a time. Monitor closely and you will be able to identify that culprit which was causing trouble to your gut system.

PREFER FOODS THAT FIGHT AGAINST INFLAMMATION: This is another good way to heal arthritis. You must eat foods that fight against inflammation. Increase your fibre intake. Eat more fresh vegetables, fruits and if possible, try eating organic produced fruits and vegetables. Cut down on refined sugar, refined grains, refined oils and trans fats. Also, you must not eat salt in excess and avoid eating foods that contain food dyes and preservatives.

RELAX YOUR MIND: Stress is the root cause of many illnesses. And in arthritis, when you are stressed, it can aggravate joint pain. Practice meditation, yoga and indulge yourself in those activities that calm your mind and body.

USE TURMERIC IN YOUR FOOD ITEMS: Turmeric is a great healer and helps in curing pain. It has anti-inflammatory properties which help in the reduction of body and joint inflammation.

MASSAGE: Get a massage as it relieves joint pain, stiffness and reduces inflammation. You must consult a professional massage therapist for massaging an arthritis patient as it needs knowledge, care and experience.

आर्थराईटिसचे लक्षण सामान्यत: कालांतराने विकसित होते परंतु ते अचानक देखील दिसू शकतात. 65 वर्षापेक्षा जास्त वयाच्या प्रौढांमध्ये संधिवात आढळतो, परंतु ते मुलांमध्ये, किशोरवयीन आणि तरुण प्रौढांमध्येही विकसित होऊ शकते. पुरुषांपेक्षा आणि वजन जास्त असलेल्या स्त्रियांमध्ये संधिवात अधिक सामान्य आहे.

आरएच्या बाबतीत रोगप्रतिकार शक्तीच्या कारणामुळे होणा-या सूजमुक्तीमुळे आपण थकल्यासारखे किंवा भूक न लागणे अनुभवू शकता. आपण देखील एनीमिक होऊ शकता - म्हणजे आपल्या लाल रक्तपेशींची संख्या कमी होते - किंवा थोडा ताप असतो. गंभीर आरएमुळे उपचार न केल्यास बाकी विकृती निर्माण होऊ शकते.

संधिवात का होतो?
कार्टिलेज आपल्या जोडींमध्ये एक फर्म परंतु लवचिक संयोजक ऊतक आहे. जेव्हा आपण हलविता आणि त्यावर ताण ठेवता तेव्हा दबाव आणि शॉक तयार करून तो सांधे सांभाळतो. या उपास्थिच्या ऊतकांच्या सामान्य प्रमाणात होणारा घट हा गठियाच्या काही स्वरुपात होतो.
सामान्य पोशाख आणि ओघ ओए, आर्थराईटिसच्या सर्वात सामान्य प्रकारांपैकी एक आहे. सांध्यांवरील संक्रमण किंवा जखम उपास्थिच्या ऊतींचे नैसर्गिक विकृती वाढवू शकतात. आपल्याकडे रोगाचा कौटुंबिक इतिहास असल्यास ओए विकसित होण्याची आपली जोखीम कदाचित जास्त असेल.
आर्थराईटिसचा एक सामान्य प्रकार, आरए, एक ऑटोम्युमिन डिसऑर्डर आहे. जेव्हा आपल्या शरीराच्या रोगप्रतिकार यंत्रणा शरीराच्या ऊतकांवर आक्रमण करतात तेव्हा असे होते. हे आक्रमण सिओनोवियम, आपल्या सांध्यांमध्ये मऊ ऊतकांवर प्रभाव पाडतात जे द्रवपदार्थ तयार करतात जे उपास्थेला पोषक करते आणि जोड्यांना चिकटवून देते.
आरए सिनोव्हियमचा एक रोग आहे जो संयुक्तपणे आक्रमण आणि नष्ट करेल. यानंतर संयुक्तपणे आतड्यातील हाडे आणि उपास्थि नष्ट होऊ शकतात.
प्रतिकार यंत्रणेच्या हल्ल्यांचे अचूक कारण अज्ञात आहे. परंतु शास्त्रज्ञांनी आनुवंशिक चिन्हक शोधले आहेत जे आरए पाच पटीने विकसित होण्याचा धोका वाढवतात.

आर्थराईटिसचा उपचार कसा केला जातो?
उपचारांचा मुख्य हेतू म्हणजे आपण अनुभवत असलेल्या वेदना कमी करणे आणि जोडांना अतिरिक्त नुकसान टाळणे होय. कंट्रोलिंग वेदना करण्याच्या बाबतीत आपल्यासाठी काय सर्वोत्कृष्ट कार्य करेल हे आपण शिकाल. काही लोक सुखकारक शोधतात. इतर लोक गळती जोडण्यावर दबाव आणण्यात मदत करण्यासाठी हालचाली किंवा वाहकांसारख्या हालचाली मदत डिव्हाइसेसचा वापर करतात.

आपले संयुक्त कार्य सुधारणे देखील महत्वाचे आहे. सर्वोत्तम परिणाम प्राप्त करण्यासाठी आपले डॉक्टर आपल्याला उपचार पद्धतींचा एक संयोजन निर्धारित करू शकतात.
