Rheumatism (Ayurvedic Concept)
Also available in: Marathi
Like all ‘vata’ induced diseases, rheumatism is also not cured easily. It is characterised by intermittent aggravation and relief of symptoms and this cycle can last for months or years. It is important to meticulously follow the restrictions of diet and activity as advised by the physician and undertake physiotherapy. Undertaking the spiritual practice and worship of the deity of fire and the Sun also proves to be useful. In this book, the Ayurvedic concept of various types of rheumatism is described.
