Rheumatoid Arthritis Diet
Astang Ayurveda strongly suggests for Rheumatoid arthritis diet. We believe in common practice of food and lifestyle monitoring as per the basic Ayurvedic principle. It says that diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, gout, spondylosis, prolapsed inter vertebral disc occur due to wrong practice of food habit and life style.
It is believed in Ayurveda, after a proper digestion of an ideal food the Rasa dhatu (may be called serum) is generated which gives rise to other tissue like blood, flesh, fat, bone, semen etc. If the food is somehow not well digested, instead of Rasa it gives rise to Aama i.e. a toxin. When it acquires in the joints, then rheumatism or gout take place.
The rheumatism patient should avoid certain food like curd, fish, hydrozoans, sugar cane product, milk, upodika leaves(green leaf), black gram, white rice, raw water, egg, oily and spicy food, different food which are not compatible and cause food poisoning etc.
Along with some life style like wind of rainy season, holding urges of motion, urine, appetite, sleep, extreme temperature, day sleep, late night bed, excessive food, less food, frequent intake of food, sleep immediately after food, intake of water during hunger should be avoided.
