Disease Explanation

Joint pain can immobilize a person and make life a living hell. The main causes and development are many.

  • Causes are combination of internal and external factors
  • Arthritis is relatively common in windy, damp and stormy climates
  • It is related to weak digestion which causes the accumulation of toxins in the joints, as we age our digestive power weakens
  • Insufficient colon function allows the toxins to collect and be reabsorbed into the blood stream and settle in the joints where circulation is reduced
  • Eating incompatible food combinations, foods which create toxins, lack of exercise or exercising after eating fatty foods or poor digestion, produces ama (undigested food toxins)
  • Ama associated with Vata (internal moving body air) quickly moves to different parts of the body and accumulates where circulation is sluggish or slow such as the hands, knees and other bone joints filling the blood vessels with a waxy type material
  • It is also more common in old age when Vata naturally increases in the body
  • Meat diet, foods such as ice cream, too much concentrated dairy such as aged cheese or globs of sour cream or cheese with your meals, cold foods especially during cold weather which weaken the digestion, heavy cakes, pastries and candies, packaged and processed foods with little fiber are the main dietary causes
  • Gas producing vegetables and legumes also create more internal air which pushes the toxins into the joints
  • This Ama blocks tissue pores and passages
  • All these causes heaviness and weakness of the heart which becomes the source of the disease

Vata Type (Most common type):

  • Severe, throbbing and cutting pain that is variable and migrating
  • This becomes worse in cold weather or when cold water comes in contact with the affected joints
  • Other symptoms include dry or scaly skin, stiff or cracking joints, bone deformities, gas, abdominal distention, low back pain, nervousness, fear, anxiety and insomnia
  • The pain is relieved by heat. Constipation is usually a symptom
  • Body types will usually be thin. Best to live in a tropical climate and follow a Vata diet

Pitta Type (Second common):

  • There will be a burning sensation with redness and inflammation which becomes worse in hot weather or from hot water
