How to Treat Morning Stiffness in Ayurveda?

Morning Stiffness


In the morning, during getting out of the bed if you feel stiffness and intense pain in the joints which gradually subsides after some time, if these symptoms persist for a longer time then you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Morning stiffness is one of the main symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an inflammatory chronic auto-immune disorder where the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own tissues.

According to modern medicine, rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disorder whose cause is not known. But Ayurveda has an answer for the cause of auto-immune disorders.

What are the Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Early rheumatoid arthritis tends to affect the small joints first- particularly the interphalangeal joints that attach the fingers to the hands and toes of the feet.

  • The primary symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is morning stiffness with unbearable pain due to inflammation in the joints.
  • Pain in the joints is acute in the morning and gradually subsides after some physical movements.
  • Joint pain remains moderate during the day time and increases sharply at night.
  • There is heaviness, mild fever, lethargy and fatigue without any physical activity.
  • Constant regurgitation in the stomach, flatulence, constipation, etc.

What is the Ayurvedic Perspective of Rheumatoid Arthritis?

According to the Ayurveda system of medicine, rheumatoid arthritis occurs due to the formation of Ama or endotoxins. Ama is defined as the undigested or unassimilated food in the body which is formed due to the malfunctioning of the digestive system. The aggravating Vata circulates Ama in the channels of the body and gets deposited in the joints causing Amavata.

Wrong dietary habits such as taking stale and leftover food, heating the vegetables again and again, frozen foods, excessive consumption of junk foods etc. lead to ama formation.

  • Wrong food combinations such as taking milk with fruits, taking vegetables with milk etc. can also cause ama formation.
  • Stress also plays a vital role in ama formation.

This ama gets deposited in the joints and causes symptoms such as stiffness, swelling and pain around the joints. Against this ama our body starts producing antibodies.

Ancient Verse

Morning Stiffness Shlok

Reference: Astanga Hridyam, Sutrasthanam, Chapter No., Shloka No. 13 - 14)

Meaning: According to this shloka, a person who takes incompatible foods, takes excess food, eats over undigested food develops the dreaded Ama dosha which is similar to the poison.
