Rheumatoid arthritis (Ama vata)


Details

  • The term ’AMA’ means unripe, immature and undigested. It is resulted as a consequence of impaired functioning of kayagni. According to vagbhata due to less functioning of ushma (agni), the anna rasa (plasma) undergoes fermentation and or putrification (dushta). It is the state of rasa, which is known as Ama. The vitiated doshas along with Ama causes AMAVATA.
  •  
  • The disease usually begins gradually with fatigue, morning stiffness (lasting for more than an hour), widespread muscle aches, loss of appetite, and weakness. Eventually joint pain appears. When the lining of the joint (synovium) becomes inflamed, it gives off more fluid and the joint becomes swollen. Joint pain is felt on both sides of the body, and may affect the wrist, knees, elbows, fingers, toes, ankle or neck.
