    Suggestion for a strong Ayurvedic massage oil for Arthritis and other pain


    Suffering from severe pain due to arthritis and other health problems and require a recommendation for which Ayurvedic oil would be the best to use? Check out the recommendations given in the responses at this Ask Expert page.

    Since after about the age of 16, I have been suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. Now I am 62. But regarding my arthritis and associated pain and other ailments, I am much better off than before.

    Very frequently I had to use a strong Ayurvedic oil called Joint Plus Oil, manufactured in India by Bharat Herbals. After lock-down, this oil I am unable to get from any shop. It is no more available to date and due to arthritis, sometimes I have to suffer from severe pain.

    Since this oil is no more available now, which oil I can use as an effective remedy as a substitute of Joint Plus Oil? Joint Plus Oil was prepared as a combination of 5 oils, i.e., (1) Narayan Taila, (2) Vishagarbha Taila, (3) Maha Masha Taila, (4) Gandhapuro Taila and (5) Dal Chini Taila.

    A few months back I had been suffering from the joint pain of my upper arm. By massaging the above mentioned Joint Plus Oil my pain was completely cured. Now I have been suffering from severe pain of Cervical Spondylosis as well. Though I have been taking the Vitamin Meganeuron OD Plus, but still without the application of this oil, my pain has been aggravated than before. What's the remedy?

  • There are many combination in almost all medicines whether Ayurveda or allopathic. The medicine will differ according to the level affected in a body. By seeing general medicine, if we apply and found not effective we should not blame the medicine. There are many Ayurveda practitioners widely. You approach one nearby to your house and get advice. Or else, my suggestion is SDM Ayurveda hospital at kuthpadi,Udupi, Karnataka. This hospital,as run by charity, is giving treatment and medicines at nominal cost but with efficient doctors. This is big hospital with multiple specialist doctors. Especially for Ortho, ayurvedic treatment is highly recommended.

  • It is good that you are able to manage your arthritis problem. You may continue with the same or similar regimen in future also.

    Your present problem is unavailability of the Joint plus Oil. But there are many other brand named pain management oils and liniments which have the same or same plus more or some variation in ingredients. You may also use two different oils where in combination all the ingredients are there.

    You may visit any Ayurvedic medical store, native medicinal store or an Ayurvedic clinic or doctor also. The doctor may prescribe some better medicines too.

    As the winter season is coming near, that will aggravate the arthritis issues. Hence it is better to keep ready pain management and inflammation reducing oils/liniments/ointments. You may have 'Karpoora Taila" handy. It gives relief in these cases. You may also keep your body especially lmbs warm at night and early mornings to reduce difficulty in joint movement. Dipping palm and feet in warm water early morning can help relieve pain and immobility of joints in fingers and feet.

    For cervical Spondylosis also the same pain relieving/management external applications can help. You may avoid pillow altogether or use a small soft pillow just for neck portion cushioning without raising position. You can wear a muffler of soft woollen cloth to keep neck warm in cold nights.

    You may continue with your vitamin supplement or its alternative brands / generic version.

  • Arthiriritis problem is aggravated due to vata disorder causing stiffness in the joints and movement becomes difficult unless it is managed by the external application of the oils with the gentle massaging in the affected area for a couple of minutes so that there is penetration of the oil inside the skin.
    Since joint plus oil, which you were using so far is not available in your area, you may apply Mahanarayan Tail produced by some reputed pharmaceutical on your affected areas with the gentle massaging. If the oil is slightly warmed up prior to application, it will relieve of your pain at a faster rate.
    It contains a number of herbs mixed in Til Oil such as Nirgundi, Rasna, Bala, Atibala, Gokhura, etc each acts in relieving the pain. It should be applied three times in a day for the better management of the pain.
    Even the combination of Mahanarayan Tail, Mahabishgarva Tail and Mahamash Tail in the ratio of 50:25:25 would provide effective results with its local application three times a day but some caution is needed in case of Mahabishgarva Tail since this oil is made with some prohibited herbs acting as poison if touched with bare hands.
    To have the permanent elimination of the disorders with which you are suffering from, the following remedies would be useful -
    1) Take Mahayograj Gugglu one or two tablets in the lunch and dinner preferably after the gap of half an hour. This medicine is the combination of Triphala, Gugglu, Trikatu etc acting on the inflammation and its use for three months would provide you complete relief. The dosage is to be decided by the competent Vaidya.
    2) Take Tulasi and Ginger tea bag and pour the same in hot water. Take this twice daily for at least three months. Ginger would take the inflammation and Tulasi is the best antioxidant to enhance immunity.
    3) After half an hour of your dinner, you may take up warm milk mixed with a pinch of Haldi Powder in it. Curcumin the main constituent in Haldi would take care of your disorder if the same is used consistently for at least three months.
    Follow only one concoction at a time.
