Effective Natural Remedies for Managing Ankylosing Spondylitis

Here is the best Ayurvedic Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that primarily affects the spine and sacroiliac joints. It can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in these areas, making everyday activities challenging for those who suffer from it. In exceptional instances, ankylosing spondylitis (AS) might lead to the fusion of spinal vertebrae. When these vertebrae become fully fused, it is referred to as ankylosis. With proper care and support from the best Ayurvedic Doctors for Ankylosing Spondylitis, you can lead a fulfilling life.<

Ankylosing Spondylitis: The symptoms 

Common symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis include persistent pain and stiffness in the lower back, buttocks, and hips. This pain is typically worse in the morning or after periods of rest. The stiffness may also be present in other areas such as the neck, chest, and shoulders. Fatigue is another common symptom associated with this condition, which can be caused by inflammation or disrupted sleep due to pain. In some cases, ankylosing spondylitis can also lead to loss of flexibility in the spine and difficulty breathing if it affects the ribs and chest wall.<

Complications associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis 

Complications of ankylosing spondylitis can vary depending on the severity and progression of the disease. Some common complications are:

Bamboo Spine: Bamboo spine is a term used to describe the characteristic appearance of the spine in individuals with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). AS is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues, primarily affecting the joints of the spine. The inflammation leads to gradual erosion and fusion of the vertebral bones, resulting in a rigid and inflexible spine that resembles a bamboo stalk. The exact cause of AS is not known, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. New Sivasoorya Healing Ashram is happy curate too many success stories where we successfully treat bamboo spine disorders.

Osteoporosis: Chronic inflammation and limited mobility can lead to the loss of bone density, increasing the risk of fractures.

Spinal deformities: Over time, ankylosing spondylitis can cause the spine to become rigid and fused, resulting in a stooped posture and limited mobility.

Fatigue and depression: Living with chronic pain and limitations may contribute to fatigue and mental health issues such as depression or anxiety.<

Ayurvedic Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis  

Panchakarma treatments 

Kerala Panchakarma treatment for AS is personalized based on the individual’s constitution, the severity of the Ankylosing Spondylitis, and other factors. Panchakarma, an integral part of Ayurveda, offers a holistic approach to managing Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). typical Panchakarma treatment for AS might include:<

Vamana (Emesis)

Virechana (Purgation)

Kashaya Basti (Decoction Enema)

Sneha Vasti (Oil Enema)

Nasya (Nasal Therapy)

Vamana, a key Panchakarma component, involves controlled emesis to eliminate excess Kapha dosha and toxins from the body. In AS, aggravated Kapha contributes to inflammation and stiffness. Vamana aims to rebalance doshas, alleviate inflammation, and improve mobility.

During Vamana, a tailored pre-therapeutic regimen prepares the body. Then, under expert supervision, emesis is induced using specific herbal decoctions to expel toxins, reduce Kapha, and help alleviate the symptoms of AS.
