“Each person must find some time to sit down and watch leaf fall,” said Elizabeth Lawrence, a famous American writer. Once autumn season stars, body undergoes various physiological changes as autumn comes with variations in temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, less sunlight, shorter days and changes in diet. Also as a result of climate change, immunity decreases, favoring the appearance of viruses, worsening the conditions such “seasonal colds”, bone and joint and / or muscle pain.
With the arrival of the rainy season, cold and humidity penetrate bones and rheumatic pain intensifies. Choosing the appropriate therapy for these health conditions must take into account.
Anyone can suffer from joint pain occasionally. But we are accustomed to associate the idea of rheumatism with any type of joint pain, even though it may be caused by other acute or chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, arthritis or gout (to be mentioned that there are more than 100 types of rheumatic diseases). While osteoarthritis is only responsible for joint inflammation, affecting people of any age, arthrosis affects cartilage leading the person suffering from premature aging of joints.
The most common symptoms of rheumatism are pain, stiffness and inflammation.
The problem for most individuals who suffer from joint pain and muscle pain is the fact that joint pain can be just relieved, not cured by various types of allopathic remedies. Joint pain caused by rheumatism elevates discomforts, felt in certain joints (wrists, for example). Pain intensity may change depending on environmental conditions, such as cold or hot. Body regions where inconvenient pain appears, are sensitive to touch and painful during movement. Also, regions affected by rheumatism may redden, may become hot and cause painful inflammation.
Ayurveda believes that the main cause of these diseases is poor digestion or weakened colon. This leads to incomplete digestion of food and formation of waste product called “Ama” (toxins) and their accumulation in joints. If digestive “Fire” (“Agni” or metabolism) normalizes, “Ama” (toxin) is no longer formed. Other factors favoring these diseases are represented by unhealthy eating that cause unhealthy blood, eating in late hours, repeated exposure to cold, local injuries, etc.

Cabbage juice also can be given for this type of pain which is known for tonic, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties. Similarly, nettle, dandelion, ginger, turmeric and garlic are well recognized remedies in relieving joint pain.
