Bursitis can occur over the shoulder joints, hip joints, elbow joints, knee joints etc.?There are various reasons for causing bursitis such as overpressure of the joints, athletic activities; injury to the joints, a complication of other diseases (like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout ), improper posture while working (especially in sedentary jobs) or sleeping etc. It can be acute or chronic.
Symptoms of bursitis include: restricted movements of the joint, constant pain or aggravating while moving of the joints, tenderness swelling etc.
Mildly massage with 'Dhanvantaram tailam' over the affected area and leave it for half hour and then have bath with warm water. It will not only relieve the pain but it also nourishes the bones.
Avoid fried foods. Intake of steamed foods is advisable. Have a cup of boiled vegetables daily.
Smear some castor oil over 'Eranda patra', slightly warm it and apply over the affected part. It will relieve the pain since 'Eranda patra' are best vata hara.
Avoid sleeping during day time and awakening during night time. May sound strange but the natural phenomena should always respected. Now- a -days due to hectic life schedule, we follow some contradictory habits which are hazardous to health but we tend to realize it in the later stage.
Nasya, or the application of warm ghee nose drops to the nostrils (5 drops in each nostril), will help to relieve the pain. Nasya opens up the flow of prana and helps the prana to flow freely through the connective tissue of the joint, which will alleviate pain.
Topically, try gently rubbing some sesame oil, eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, mahanarayan oil, or neem oil into the swollen joint or other painful area.
As with arthritis, the pathological process of bursitis begins with toxicity accumulated in the colon. These toxins get absorbed in the bloodstream, go into the general circulation, and lodge in the bursae, leading to the symptoms of bursitis. So it is important to keep the colon clean by using the following strategies:
our diet should be pitta-soothing but not vata-provoking. Strictly avoid hot, spicy foods and fermented foods such as pickles. Also avoid raw vegetables and salad. Strictly avoid ice water and other ice-cold drinks. Don't eat beans (pinto beans, adzuki beans, black beans, or garbanzos).
As long as you have bursitis, you should not do strenuous exercise. Gentle yoga stretching is beneficial. Try the Camel, Cobra, Cow, and Cat poses, the Spinal Twist, and Forward Bend-under the guidance of a yoga teacher.
For severe painful condition use Joint Aid Plus - 2 capsules twice daily, Tablet Kaishore Guggul with Kumari Saar.
