Rheumatoid Arthritis & Auto-Immune Diseases
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an auto-immune disease which causes chronic inflammation of joints. It is known as Amavata in Ayurveda.
Autoimmune diseases are those diseases where our body`s immune system attack the healthy cells of our body.
Our Body`s immune system is formed with a network of cells, tissues and organs which work as a team to fight external diseases, bacteria, viruses and other threats to our body.
One of the major components of our body`s immune system is the White Blood Cells.
White Blood Cells are also known are leukocytes which reach out to diseases causing organisms or substances in our body and fight them.
In case of Autoimmune diseases, our body`s immune system mistakenly attacks our own body.
The autoimmune system of our body then by mistake identify our body parts as external or foreign objects and starts fighting them by creating a protein called autoantibodies which begin attacking the healthy cells.

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Ayurveda
According to the Ayurveda, Rheumatoid Arthritis is known as Amavata.
The word Amavata comes from two words- Ama and Vata. Vata Dosha is one of the three Doshas in our body. The Vata Dosha, according to Ayurveda is responsible for all movement in our mind and body. Vata Dosha controls the flow of blood, elimination of wastes, breathing and interestingly, also the movement of thoughts across our mind.
In case of Amavata, the Vata Dosha in our body gets impaired because of Amavata and Ama gets accumulated in our joints. Ama according to Ayurveda is the maldigestetive component in our body.
