Fight arthritis with jeera, methi and oil massage, home remedies and a healthy diet has gained popularity over a few years now. More patients are opting for ayurveda over allopathy to control and cure arthritis, which has zero side-effects.
The Institute of Ayurveda and Integrated Medicine (IAIM) gets over 300 arthritis patients every month. The treatment is a combination of oral medication, panchkarma treatment and diet and lifestyle changes.
Said Dr G G Gangadharan, medical director, IAIM: “Ayurvedic medicines do not have side-effects like allopathic steroids and painkillers do. We have comprehensive treatment for arthritis which lasts for 7, 14 or 21 days. Thereafter, a patient is put on oral medication, oil massage and panchkarma. We also suggest some alteration in diet and lifestyle.”
