Clinical Review Of Vardhamana Pippali Rasayana In The Treatment Of Amavata (Rheumatoid Arthritis)

Rheumatoid arthritis (formerly called polyarthritis) is an inflammation of the inner skin of joints of jaw, fingers, toes, hands, feet, knees, elbows, hips, and shoulders. The inflammation usually begins gradually and can be so bad that the cartilage and bones are severely damaged and can deform extremely. It can lead to limitation of movement (functio laesa). Generally, this kind of arthritis has to be diagnosed to distinguish it from others. In classical medicine, this disease is treated with steroidal and non-steroidal drugs, which can cause severe side effects. The treatment proposed in this study has produced no side effects and is also inexpensive.

In this study the affected patients are treated with Vardhamana Pippali Rasayana. The study produces amazing results. Please see:
