Hello doctor,

I have rheumatoid arthritis and take Trikata, Sinhanad guggul, and Shalaki. I also use psyllium and ginger tea. I take a massage with sesame oil and Maharana yana oil. For how long must I take this therapy to feel better? Is this therapy alright? How is your experience with rheumatoid arthritis?



Welcome to

I just read your query. The medications you are taking are all good, but rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. So, you have to take medicine for the long term. The effect of rheumatoid arthritis varies from patient to patient. In some people, after taking proper medicine, further damage to joints can be prevented. However, in some, it persists even after taking medicine. So, I advise you to follow your doctor's advice and keep on repeating your investigations after some time. Also, do ask your physician about Panchakarma therapy. It is also very helpful in rheumatoid arthritis. I hope you are satisfied with my answer.
