Prevention of Osteoarthritis
  1. Massage & Steam
    • ‘Vayu’ is responsible for Ageing Process and degenerative changes in the body. To slow down the degenerative changes, we must win over Vayu. Vayu is situated at tactile sensory organ and this sensory organ is lodged in the skin. So regular full body massaging (Especially at joints) with medicated oil keeps Vayu away.
    • Acharya Charaka has stated in his book ‘Charaka Samhita’ (Written about 5000 years ago) that when we can bend dry stick of wood by Snehana (massage-Oleation) and Swedana (steam), then what to say about human body (Definitely we can bend). So here we want to explain that by oil massage (or/& internal use) and steam, we can give stability, strength and movability to the joints.
  2. Sunlight
    • Sit in morning sunlight for 15-20 minutes. It gives you Vit. D which makes bone strong.
    • Sunlight helps in curing many ‘Vayu’ disorders.
