Walking, running, lifting, stretching and writing – your joints make it possible for you to do all of your favourite activities. But what would happen if they were damaged?
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects your joints. It can make your physical movements very painful. It can damage any joint from your hands to your legs. Here’s what makes it such a disturbing condition:
Rheumatoid arthritis causes joint pain and damage on both sides of the body. So, if one of your knees is affected, it is probable the other will be too!
Its symptoms like stiffness, swelling etc. occur in periods known as flares or exacerbations. During a non-flare period, you would experience no symptoms at all!
In worst cases, it can completely disrupt your joint function and deform them – leaving you with an untreatable physical problem!
With the clock ticking backwards, it can only become worse if left untreated. Read on to find out the conditions under which Rheumatoid Arthritis is developed.
Common Causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Poor Lifestyle: If you spend most of your day sitting on a chair and enjoying fast foods, you could be at higher risks of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Improper Eating Schedule: It is hard to resist the temptation of dairy, aquatic and poultry products. But if they are taken in heavy amounts, they can degrade your joints.
Environment: Polluted water or air and adulterated food can ‘up’ your chances of Rheumatoid Arthritis drastically.
Addictions: You might have heard that excess of everything is bad. Well, it is even more adversely felt in your joints! Nicotine, tobacco, alcohol, caffeine etc. increase toxins in your blood and damage your joints.
Modern lifestyle can easily make you prone to such diseases.
But there is no cause for worry as Ayurveda is by your side!
