The problem: do you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system rather unhelpfully identifies key organic tissues as dangerous pathogens and neutralises them before they can do their good work.
Over time, the condition gets sufficiently acute meaning that we end up experiencing a loss of cartilage and bone tissues and thus we end up with major pain in our joints.
The inflammatory response is a result of the overburdened, mistakenly hyperactive immune system, which often leaves us with swelling and flexibility issues.
Medicated treatments for rheumatoid arthritis can have some pretty drastic side effects, and so finding a more natural treatment for rheumatoid arthritis can provide all of the relief and none of the dark consequences.
How can Vedic meditation help with treating rheumatoid arthritis?
Certain dietary changes and exercise can make a significant difference. But if you really want to get to the heart of the matter, then Vedic meditation will at the very least reduce the stress which so often indirectly aggravates this condition.
Moreover, it will often allow the immune system to return to a more balanced mode of operation. This results in a softening of the inflammatory response and forms part of a long-term natural treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.
It is also an effective pain management tool that will release the necessary endorphins to reduce the severity of the discomfort we experience.
Our calcium balance will be restored and our bodies will be less inclined to break down too much bone structure. The additional calcium supplies will also help nourish our organs, which can be strained when we have rheumatoid arthritis.
Meditation also greatly reduces our levels of free radicals, a significant causal factor of arthritic symptoms. It also greatly increases our ability to overcome smoking, which has been shown to be a crucial environmental factor, both as a cause and an aggravator of symptoms.
