Ayurveda & Musculo - skeletal Health

Bones, Joints & Muscles – we all know their importance in our day to day life and how annoying & stressful it is when even one of the joints stops working properly. To make matter worse we have 230 joints &this exceeds the number of bones in our body(only 206).

Due to our busy lives and daily rush, these precious parts of our body get neglected the most. We take them for granted until they become problematic.

Ayurveda’s View on Musculo Skeletal Health:

In Ayurveda, the bones and joints are considered a site of vata in the body—meaning that they have a general affinity for vata, and are particularly prone to vata imbalances.

The joints are deeply affected by the quality of the bone tissue (asthi dhatu), but in Ayurveda, the joints also share an important connection with the nervous tissue (majja dhatu), and the nervous system as a whole.

In Ayurveda, it is said that strong AGNI and proper digestion are essential to our overall health and longevity. Every imbalance and disease can be traced back to impaired agni and poor digestion. The joints are no different. Healthy joints and all of the tissues that support their physiology rely on tissue nutrition, which is ultimately a reflection of the health of agni.

How Ayurveda supports:

Supporting the joints according to Ayurveda is a matter of clearing any accumulated toxins(ama), and pushing it back to the GI tract.From there, eliminating it from the body.

We also need to reduce inflammation, support proper circulation, and balance agni in the tissues. At the same time, kindling agni will ensure that neither excess dosha nor ama are able to find their way back into the joints in the future.
