Ayurvedic Treatment For Ankylosing Spondylitis:

Ankylosing Spondylitis treatment in ayurveda

Ayurveda has a very effective approach to the treatment of inflammations even those of auto-immune nature. The approach is holistic comprising of diet modifications, lifestyle changes, stress management, herbal medication and Ayurvedic therapies, Yoga asanas, pranayama and meditation, that help the body get back to Homeostasis (state of balance and harmony). The approach is even effective as a preventive against further relapses of the condition.

In usual practise, we observe that many patients improve very well with herbal medicines and external applications alone but some with severe symptoms require therapies like Dhanymladhara ( Pouring of a warm fermented liquid), Podikkizhi ( Herbal powder massage) Ilakkizhi ( Massage with bolus of fresh herbal leaves), Oil massage with steam bath and several varieties of Vasthi (Medicated enema). These therapies if administered under the supervision of knowledgeable Ayurvedic physicians are all very effective in relieving the inflammation and keeping the problem away without the need for powerful drugs. Therapies like Tailadhara (Pouring medicated oils on the body), Nhavarakkizhi (Massage with Bolus of rice boiled in medicated milk) and Ksheervasthi (Medicated milk based enema) are then used and are extremely effective in strengthening the tissues and improving flexibility.
