Modern medicine recognizes more
than 100 types of joint conditions. It is one of the most common chronic
and degenerative health problems in the world. Causes can be attributed
to injury, infections, metabolic conditions, or even tumors but the main
cause is from a toxic condition. Arthritis is mainly a Vata (air)
disease which involves pain and weakening of the bones (the main Vata
tissue in the body). In most cases the causes remain unknown to western
medicine. Disorders are also related to age, sex and weather conditions.
Ayurveda also cites causes related to digestive disorders. We

Main Causes and Development Causes include both
internal and external factors. Arthritis is more 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. Poor colon function allows the toxins to
accumulate and be reabsorbed back 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, to 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. This causes heaviness and weakness
of the heart which becomes the seat of the disease.

More on Guggulu! Indian Bdellium, which is called by the
name Guggulu in India (It is also known as Commiphora Mukul), is one
of the most trusted herbs which can be used as a purifying agent, a
tonic that helps rejuvenate our cells/tissues, and plays an
important role in balancing nervous system and solve reproductive
system related complaints etc. It is also considered for its use in
solving and controlling menstruation cycle related problems.
Guggulu as described above, possesses purifying qualities, which
help in purifying blood by removing toxins and other impurities from
blood. As it cleanses blood and removes impurities, it also helps
our cells to rejuvenate and become fresh and active.
Its cleansing qualities are very effective in treatment of various
skin disorders/diseases. For those who are suffering from skin
related problems and various infections, Guggulu can help them in
finding some relief as it helps in stimulation of Phagocytosis by
increasing leukocytes level in the blood. The skin, kidneys, mucous
membranes and many other internal organs omit this; this activity
helps in keeping our body safe from getting infected. Guggulu is
considered to be one of the most effective disinfectants that help
our body in getting rid of the unwanted elements/substances
naturally. It also helps in removing/reducing some type of unwanted
tumors from our body (which are caused by infection).
Along with cleansing the body, Guggulu also helps in reducing the
level of Cholesterol from the blood. Guggulu is used in the weight
control medicines/supplement as it helps in buring/reducing unwanted
extra fat from our body in the most natural way.
Guggulu is very helpful in conditions such as arthritis (a
condition caused due to 'Vata & Pitta Dosha') in which the
patient suffers from the pain (Vata Dosha) caused in the joints and
also in cells/tissues. The other main reason of arthritis is, the
toxic substance (which is caused due to some problem in digestive
system, which results in half digested food which is referred as
'AMA' (TOXIN)) that gets accumulated in the tissues of body and
induces the effect of pain in the body. As guggulu is very helpful
in improving the digestive system and it also helps in removing
toxins from our body, it can be used effectively in treatment of
arthritis. (Trifala Guggulu is mainly used in the treatment of
arthritis; it also eases the inflammatory conditions).
