Ayurveda/rheumatoid arthritis


my wife is 39 year & was diagnosed for rheumatoid arthrits in nov 1998 the flairs were someimes high & some times low. since past 6 years it is a continuous pain . we have met allopathic doctors & taken hcqs/sazo/prednisolone inj/methotrexate. inbetween we took homeopathy treatment for 3 months but did not go well. tried ayurvedic treatment but still not helpful. atlast again taking the above mentioned allopathic drugs exept prednisolone for the past 6-8 months. as per advise from colleague , ayurvedic preparations of yograj gugul & maharasnadi  kwath has started along with these drugs since 1week. pls advise is it safe to take two forms of medcines at a time. if yes how long it should be taken. the apin is very severe in wrist,ankle, neck & shoulder.

Dear Mr Mukesh

You can continue giving with allopathic medicine. there wont be much problem. As per my experience diet has a major role in RA.
If you want try this. Warm water 6-7 glasses in day. avoid milk products. Absolutely no curd. No salads. Take vegetables as much you can. Parboiled also you can try. for few days till pain doesnt settle. Take only khichadi of brwon rice with moong daal and vegetables. vege soup nothing from out side. dont do any type of massage.
Only you can do fomentation with hot water bottle or pads.
In medicine take amvatari ras 2 tab twice in day. tab haritaki 2 tabs with 2 spoon of warm castor oil early morning empty stomach for 7 days. maharasnadi is fine. yograj gugul wont help much. instead take tryodashang gugul 2 tabs twice day.

Do this for 7 days and write back.

Health and Peace
