Ayurveda has been used in the treatment of Arthritis in India for thousands of years. Here are some of the specific Ayurvedic treatments which will benefit arthritis sufferers:
Ellakizhi is used in the treatment of osteo-arthritis as it promotes better circulation and relieves stress. It is a fomentation massage with finely chopped herbal leaves and herbal powders, warmed in medicated oil and bundled in a poultice. It also brings relief to sufferers of rheumatism and other diseases and is ministered to people with spondylosis and sports injuries suffering from soft tissue inflammations and joint pains.
