Ayurveda supposedly cured my grandfather's RA when he was in his 50s. After intense treatment for a year, it went into remission and never came back. I have no idea what the treatment was.

Do you think you could post more details? What herbs, what doses, how often? That would give some of us a starting point.

Juliana Hagen 3 years

Sure

Off all medicines that’s awesome How long after Ayurveda treatment and taking Ayurveda medicines were you off them? Did you take any allopathic medic too? If yes how long before you got off them? Thanks

I'd like to know more too. I wish I knew my grandfather's treatment. The only thing my mother remembers is that he ate a jam made of various herbs and roots, and he got a massage with warm herb-infused oils. One root she remembers is athimadhuram. I've been doing some research online and here's what I found: Turmeric, ginger, and rosehips fight inflammation. Amla and moringa are also good. I add all of these to smoothies.

Priya Vernon, that jam was probably Chavanprash? The main ingredient is Amla. I started taking it a couple months ago because my super awesome lil sis got me some. I tried a few different brands, some I really disliked, the ones I liked are, of course, more expensive... But I don't know if it's helping all by itself as I take other things like Turmeric and Ginger too.

Juliana Hagen, I just asked mom. She says it wasn't Chavanprash, but a homemade jam prescribed by an Ayurvedic doctor in India (this was back in the 1950s).

There is no particular combination recommended as single formulation in ayurvedia for ra they give 4-5 varieties of herbs but for me a 10 herbs combination given and results are awesome. I suggested few more people and they reported same benefit. Its inexpensive too. Monthly it costs me rs. 3000/-

$47/mo. I converted it for the lazies I think that's very affordable.

For those in the US, I think finding an integrative/ holistic medicine doctor or naturopath is our best bet.

I am currently living in India and started doing Ayurveda 3 months ago in addition to taking my allopathic medicines plaquenil and methotrexate. I have all the symptoms of RA but have tested negative for everything except having a high ANA count. After being on allopathic drugs for 15 months my pain was not going - I had to take painkillers at least once/twice a week and in Sept/Oct’17 had severe leg cramps..... İt was after the 2 cramping episodes I decided to try Ayurveda - I work with a doctor at iAIM healthcare an integrated Ayurveda hospital - I’ve not had to take a painkiller for the last 3 months! I’m in touch with my rheumatologist and internal medicine doctor so that everyone is aware what I’m doing.
Ayurveda treatment includes taking natural herbal syrups and tablets 3 times a day - in Ayurveda symptoms of RA are called ‘amavata’
If you are interested I’d suggest working with an Ayurveda doctor directly - the treatment plan is very wholistic including diet control, food eliminations, detoxing the body with naturopathy, massages and taking herbal medicines.
I was initially very apprehensive about trying Ayurveda but being in constant and increasing pain for 15 months forced me to look at alternatives

I’m off plaquenil and have reduced methotrexate dosage by more than half. Still have some pain and stiffness, knees and fingers but better than before I personally think that diet and detox play a huge part and am focused on that
