Discussion on Ayurvedic treatment for  Amavata ( R.A. )


According to Ayurveda, factors like junk food  can impair digestion. In addition stress can add to weaker digestion. It is because of the origin of semi digested food; Ras Dhatu that is known as Ama. The increase in Ama mixed with Vata and Kapha doshas aggravate the back and the whole body. This creates the symptoms and the Rheumatoid Arthritis.
