Feb 08 2021


The emergence of the ultra-modern urban lifestyle has entangled the individual in a frenzy of activities bustling with new opportunities. In this hustle-bustle of modern urban life, health takes a back seat as work takes priority. The first thing that gets affected is diet. A steep rise in junk food consumption and negligence of your health can lead to your body lacking essential nutrients, such as calcium. Bad posture, less or no exercising (due to sedentary jobs) and unhealthy food intake are majorly responsible for joint problems too. Arthritis is becoming a major concern, mostly among middle-aged individuals.


Arthritis literally means joint inflammation. It is an umbrella term covering over a hundred medical conditions.

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is the loss of elasticity of cartilage due to ageing. It includes joint injury in hips, hands, knees and spine. Morning stiffness of joints is most common in this.


RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS is an autoimmune disease which attacks parts of the body, especially the joints. Lumps get formed under on the skin on the joints and are called Rheumatoid Nodules - like knuckles, elbows or heels - which receive pressure. Symptoms may arise gradually or at once. Pain occurs in the affected part of the body but may spread to all joints. The joint swelling interferes with day-to-day activities of life and is extremely painful.

PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS is the condition of inflammation of the skin as well as joints. Psoriasis is a skin disease. Only 10% of people affected by it develop a chance of suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis. It causes the fingers and toes to swell up to twice their size.  People with this medical condition have pitted or discoloured fingernails. In some cases, only one joint or a few joints are affected.

With the right medication, physiotherapy and in some cases, surgery can cure arthritis. There are many courses of medications one can choose for treating arthritis. Tried Allopathy? Have you been to numerous doctors? Still struggling? Try Homeopathy.


Homeopathy is considered a safe and long-lasting method for treating arthritis. Here are some reasons why you should consider Homeopathy as an effective medication course:


  • A remedy is chosen based on the theory of individualisation and symptom similarity. Symptoms and level based homeopathy options are available.
  • Homeopathy’s success rate has been quite high for curing arthritis.  Using herbal extracts and natural elements helps as an effective course of treatment.
  • The process might take longer since it caters to smaller nuances of health and overall wellness. Homeopathy has been highly recommended by those who are currently undergoing the treatment.



The individual-based treatment method of Homeopathy has made it stand out as a system of alternative medicine. Obtaining health insurance for those undergoing homeopathy has become easier because many health insurance companies now specialise in coverage of alternative healthcare, given the Homeopath is a licensed practitioner. Thus, it remains a boon for your health as well as finances.
