More info

The junction between two bones is called a joint. The junction between two cells or tissues is also a subtle joint. All the bones have a cavity inside, a part of which is filled by bone marrow (i.e. majja). Vata-dosha is naturally dominant in bones. The word sandhi means joint and Vata is the dominant dosha. Hence rheumatism is called as Sandhivata.

Because of continuous movement, Vata-dosha gradually increases in bones and joints. Hence in all diseases of the joints, Vata-dosha is dominantly affected though Pitta and Kapha doshas too may be increased to some extent. Thus when Vata-dosha is increased in joints, it leads to rheumatism.

In this book, we endeavour to describe the Ayurvedic concept of various types of rheumatism. This book shall be useful to doctors, vaidyas, medical students and patients suffering from rheumatism or other chronic joint disorders.
