A Food Plan for Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients

These guidelines can be used to maintain dosha since Rheumatoid Arthritis is primarily caused by vitiation of vata dosha, the following food plan is to balance the same balance, and to restore balance if necessary in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Vata influences the movement of thoughts, feelings, prana flows, nerve impulses, and fluids in the body.

Breakfast is usually desirable. Hot food and sweet and sour tastes. Reduce dry foods and bitter tastes. Warm or hot water and drinks. Raw nuts and nut butters. Spices: cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, ginger, cloves in moderation. Vata dosha is aggravated and increased during autumn and early winter. During these seasons all mind-body types can include some of the above foods and decrease others.


Fasting for seven to ten days - taking only herbal teas, garlic, vegetable broth, decoction of potatoes, and juice extracts from carrots and beets
