Muscle and joint pain
There are several kinds of pain that sits in muscles and joints. Ache due to overwork, inflammatory pain such as rheumatic pain and fibromyalgia are some
I will not go into the school medical definitions of different types of pain. Even today, has not even the whole picture of what causes such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
Ayurveda, I think gives a better understanding of how pain occurs and how to treat based on what kind of pain it is.
The vatarelaterade pain comes from a vataöverskott in the body, which can arise from too much cold, wind, drafts, vatahöjande food (dry, cold, raw food), overwork, stress for prolonged periods of several causes. Vatavärk characterized in that it frequently moves around the body and may be in different locations on different days. Fibromyalgia may be a type of pain. Pain in general is often a sign of a vataöverskott.
Vatavärk which lasted a long time has probably also been built up over a long period of time and there may be an accumulation of waste products in the body - amateur - who sat in the muscles and joints. Ama is formed first and foremost when digestion is not functioning optimally. When you eat too much and overload the stomach and intestine, stress at mealtimes and inappropriate food makes ama can be formed. Running this for some time, becomes the digestive tract overwhelmed with ama ama and move to the last out of the body. Ama has a tendency to settle in the body's weak points and it could be the joints of a vataperson or muscles of a kaphaperson.
If you have inflammation of the muscles or joints, it is often an pittaöverskott involved. Inflammation is characterized by redness and warmth, which are typical characteristics of pitta. A vataöverskott may lie in the bottom plus ama. The body reacts with wanting to "burn" the ama and inflammation occurs. Inflammation can of course also occur with an injury and then is a natural reaction in the body without the ama is there.
Treatment according to Ayurveda
Short term health problems caused by cold, drafts and overwork or similar managed with vatabalanserande measures: rest, heat, eating ginger and turmeric, cover with warming herbs, massage with warm oils. Are muscles and joints stiff can care strechtning and yoga be beneficial.
At long-term problems when ama is involved where the body must be able to do away with ama. The challenge is to bring order to the digestive and take various purifying action special diet for a period. Herbal drinks and Ayurvedic food supplement that helps to cleanse the body may be appropriate.
When muscles and joints are inflamed applies to both dampen down the inflammation with refreshing herbs, for example in the form of cover, but also to deal with too much ama in the body. Purifying teas, spices, and supplements that guggul can be used in addition to a pittabalanserande diet.
At a health consultation tries to get the whole picture of the man and his current situation so that each person receives individualized advice.
