HIJAMAH - THE PERFECT TREATMENT FOR ARTHRITIS. There are over 200 kinds of rheumatic diseases – the word rheumatic means aches and pains in joints, bones and muscles. Two of the most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Arthritis is not just a disease of older people – it can affect people of all ages, including children. It is not clear what causes arthritis and there is no cure at present. However, there is plenty you can do to manage your condition and lead a full and active life. Now for the science of this scenario. Where two bones meet, called the joint, the bone ends are covered with cartilage, also known as gristle. This cartilage is sturdy, elastic and spongy or compressible, and keeps the bones from moving against each other at the joint. The cells of this cartilage, called chondrocytes, are thought to be the longest living cells of the body. Surrounding the bones and cartilage is strong, fibrous capsule lined with synovium, a thin membrane that lubricates the joint area with fluid. The end result is less friction or smoother rubbing together of the bones. This fluid also feeds the cartilage cells, keeping them healthy, and SYNOVIAL FLUID is pumped into them during joint movement. Thus lack of movement (activity / exercise) can be unhealthy. Other parts of the body features involved with this arthritic scenario include muscles, tendons, ligaments, bursea and mental activity. Muscles, attached to bones with tendons and ligaments, move bones by contracting. They also cushion movement, absorbing impact or shock. Throughout the muscle and tendon areas are bursae or sacs filled with fluid. These also help cushion movement. And throughout all the coordination of these parts during movement, the brain is a part. The brain communicates via nerves throughout the body, in particular the muscles for this scenario, to prepare joints for activity. The exact science of what actually causes arthritis is still being researched. For most of the 100-plus forms of arthritis, the causes are unknown. Injury, overuse of joints and mechanical issues with joints (like skeletal abnormalities, worn out joint muscles) can lead to arthritis. And many point to issues relating to bacteria and germs as some of the problem. Heredity, stress, drugs, food allergies and viruses have also been linked to some forms of arthritis. So have diet, poor circulation and lack of movement. Common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA): • Stiffness in the joints, particularly in the morning. Typically this affects the hands and feet, and is symmetrical, but often the dominant hand is more severely affected. • Swollen, painful joints (called synovitis). The joints are soft and boggy, quite different from the square, hard, bony swelling of osteoarthritis (OA). The swelling is due to an inflamed joint membrane (the synovial lining). There may be fluid in the joint (an effusion). • Fatigue; most people have little energy, feel ill and often describe flu-like symptoms. • One of the most important pointers to the diagnosis is rapid loss of function. People with RA find buttons and bra straps are very difficult to fasten and they frequently drop cups or other household items. What conditions may be confused with RA? Fibromyalgia People with this condition often feel pain “all over”, in all their muscles and joints, and have multiple tender points when examined. They will also often have a degree of early morning stiffness. Poor unrestorative sleep is often present, with associated fatigue and low mood, and often there are associated symptoms of headaches and irritable bowels and bladder. It is important to distinguish this condition from rheumatoid arthritis, although sometimes both conditions are present. Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) This condition causes pain and stiffness of the shoulders and thighs and tends to occur in people over 65 years of age. Sometimes elderly people with RA present with similar symptoms, and the correct diagnosis of RA usually becomes apparent. Post-viral arthritis Acute, post-infective, self-limiting arthritis can follow influenza and other viral illness, particularly parvovirus. It may be extremely painful with swollen ankles, wrists or knees. This usually resolves over several weeks or months. A clue may be that other family members or friends were also affected by symptoms of a viral infection around the same time. Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of joint disease, and often affects the hands. It occurs more frequently in women than men, and often starts around or just after the time of the menopause. Hands affected by OA often have small lumps (nodes) on either side of the finger joints, most commonly found at the ends of the fingers, near to the finger nails (called Heberden’s nodes). The base of the thumb is also frequently affected. OA hands usually function quite well, even though they may look unsightly i.e. look larger, squarer and have hard lumps. Osteoarthritis can usually be distinguished from rheumatoid arthritis, although some people can suffer from both types of arthritis. Many patients will also look for ways to help their condition themselves through diet, exercise and complementary therapies such as acupuncture or hijamah. Treatment by Hijamah. Modern medicine has no cure for this debilitating illness and can only control the symptoms of such a condition to a degree or can assist in pain management. Hijamah removes vascular occlusions which lead to such illnesses as RA. A Vascular occlusion is a blockage of a blood vessel, usually with a clot. It differs from thrombosis in that it can be used to describe any form of blockage, not just one formed by a clot. When it occurs in a major vein, it can, in some cases, cause deep vein thrombosis. Once these "blockages" are out of the target area then the Synovial sac(synovium) starts filling up with synovial fluid allowing the bones of the joints to be adequately lubricated. Free flowing blood will nourish damaged tissues such as cartilage and ligaments and flush out any morbid matter which may have remained there for a period of time due to blood stasis. However a regular cycle of several treatments by hijamah has the ability to completely eradicate Arthritis. None the less it has to be complemented by specific herbal medications which will facilitate the repair of damaged tissues and at the same time will work as a flushing/cleaning agent. Such herbs come under the title of PURGATIVES.Honey and Senna are perfect simple examples of such natural herbal medications. . Below are some natural herbal remedies which can be added as dietary supplementation. I would like to thank Dr. Yasir Siddique from Hijama Cupping Clinic for enlightening us with the following information below on supplementation. Supplements for RA, OA. Joint ace.. Glucosamine sulphate, chondroiton, Msm.. Rose hip and Ginger in it... Made by vitabiotic, uk. Omega 3 fish oil 1500 mg once daily must be enteric coated. Gingko plus combination of gingko biloba, ginseng, gotu Kola and lecithin, E rapid amorphous ascien for micro circulation and has anti inflammatory affects. We use natural pain killer combination of wild yam extract and turmeric root extract .. MSM is also known as anti inflammatory.... Also add at least 5000iu vitamin D daily.. Botanic calcium and mineral complex.. Above supplements and herbal remedies are very beneficial with proper Hijamah sessions every 4 to 6 weeks. In shaa Allah. There is now a much greater medical understanding of the disease, better ways to assess disease activity, and, for the first time, targeted biological therapies that have a real prospect of inducing disease remission and the best such treatment without a doubt for such malady`s is HIJAMAH.Dr. Xaigham Khan10 Likes17 Answers

World Arthritis Day 2018 World Arthritis Day (WAD) was established in 1996 by Arthritis and Rheumatism International (ARI) to raise awareness of issues affecting people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). It is celebrated every year on 12th October. 'Don't Delay, Connect Today' theme initiated in 2017 by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) continues to give importance on early diagnosis and access to care in 2018. ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today’ campaign calls on people including the public, physicians, health professionals and policy-makers to connect early for earlier diagnosis of RMDs and timely access to evidence-based treatment. The overall goal is to highlight RMDs as major public health problem globally and that early diagnosis and timely access to treatment can prevent further damage and burden on the individual and society. Why is early diagnosis important? Early diagnosis is important to prevent further damage, if not treated early daily activities are affected, reducing the quality of peoples' life and affecting physical abilities. Delay is often due to a lack of awareness hence it’s important to know the symptoms of RMDs and consult a healthcare professional early. RMDs are commonly divided into inflammatory and non-inflammatory types: Common non-inflammatory RMDs are degenerative spine diseases, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia Common inflammatory RMDs are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, connective tissue diseases and polymyalgia rheumatica. RMDs can be hereditary; can also be triggered by lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive weight, sedentary lifestyles, increasing age and having occupations that lead to injury and overuse of joints/muscles; however, in some cases the causes are unknown. Early medical treatment of inflammatory RMDs, particularly in the first 12 weeks, can prevent joint and organ damage and improve long-term function. What is Arthritis? The word arthritis actually means joint inflammation; in public health arthritis is used as a shorthand term for arthritis and other rheumatic conditions. What are the most common types of arthritis? The most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis. What are the symptoms of arthritis? Symptoms of arthritis in affected joint are- swelling, pain, stiffness, decreased range of movements. How does body weight influence arthritis? Maintaining a healthy weight reduces the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Health tips for living with RMDs/Arthritis- (a)Healthy living- Improve your wellbeing by keeping high on emotional wellbeing, self-management and motivation and by making healthy life style choices such as: Don't smoke. Avoid stress- As stress can alter behaviour, affect sleep patterns, change appetite and increase muscle tension therefore use relaxation techniques to help manage stress. Get adequate sleep- Get enough quality sleep to protect your mental and physical wellbeing and quality of life. Reduce alcohol intake (b) Healthy eating- Healthy and balanced diet is important for people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). Control your salt and sugar intake: Try to reduce sugar intake as it is high in calories especially in soft drinks, ready meals and confectionery foods. Salt intake should be less than 5 grams per day for adults. Too much salt can cause high blood pressure, an increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. (c) Physical activity and fitness- Being physically active is good for general health and can have specific benefits for people with RMD/Arthritis. Consult your doctor or physiotherapist about the type of exercise most appropriate for your condition. Exercise may be in the form of cycling, dancing, walking, gardening, swimming, yoga etc. Source : NHPDr. Hemant Adhikari13 Likes21 Answers
