Homeopathy: For An Unrestricted Life Due To Arthritis


For people who’ve led an active life through the years, when life slows down and they become incapable of doing things they used to do, they find it difficult to cope with it. This is precisely what happens to people suffering from arthritis. Everything is working and on track until it’s not. So we’ve put together some information about arthritis and its treatment options. Read on to know more.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is referred to as the pain in the joints or joint disease. There are more than 200 different types of conditions under or related to arthritis. It is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. Common symptoms of arthritis include swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. The symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe; you might recover over time or the symptoms may persist for years and get worse over time. Severe arthritis may lead to chronic pain, inability to perform regular activities and difficulty in walking or climbing stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes and bone deformities.

What are the types of Arthritis ?

As mentioned above, there are more than 200 conditions that could be called arthritis, but most of them fall under these two main categories.The most common types of arthritis- osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatic arthritis (RA). 

Osteoarthritis is a condition that you develop with age, due to suffering trauma or an injury to a joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and it often occurs in younger adults. The condition causes the body’s immune system, which is its defense system, to attack the joint lining. Few other rheumatic conditions related to arthritis include gout, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Rheumatic conditions are characterised by pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling in and around one or more joints. The symptoms might appear gradually or suddenly. Some kinds of arthritis can affect multiple organs and cause widespread symptoms.

What are the causes of arthritis?

Arthritis is most commonly caused due to the degeneration or thinning down of the cartilage tissue. Cartilage is a firm connective tissue in your joints, but also flexible, which protects the joints by absorbing the pressure exerted when you move and put stress on them. Normal wear and tear of the cartilage of the ailing joint causes osteoarthritis. An infection or injury to the joint can accelerate the natural breakdown of cartilage tissue. You are considered to be at risk of developing osteoarthritis if you have a family history.

Rheumatoid arthritis, as mentioned above, is an autoimmune disease. It occurs when the immune system attacks the tissues of the body. These attacks affect the synovium, which is a soft tissue in your joints. The synovium produces a fluid that nourishes the cartilage and lubricates the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can gradually and eventually result in the destruction of both the bone and cartilage inside your joint.

Why is homeopathy the best treatment option for arthritis?

All approaches of medicine have treatment options for arthritis. But, along with any medical treatment, it has been observed that physical activity and lifestyle changes have a positive effect on arthritis and can improve pain, function, and mental health.

While all the approaches of medicine offer symptomatic treatment to arthritis, homeopathy is one of the best, because it does not aim at providing short-term relief. On the contrary, homeopathic treatment focuses on completely curing and eradicating the inflammation of the joints. This may require some time as the immune system has to get back to its natural functioning. 

Additionally, homeopathy is a purely natural approach to treatment, with no steroids or synthetic medicines being used. Homeopathic treatment of chronic arthritis, whether osteoarthritis, rheumatoid, or any other form, can be quite effective. Apart from these important factors

  • Homeopathy medicines have no side-effects.
  • Treatment with homeopathy offers individualized cure, which means you are treated for the condition you are suffering from and not for general symptoms that people are assumed to be experiencing. 
  • Homeopathy is simple and effective.
  • Homeopathy is the safest option because its treatment does not interfere with your conventional medication.
