The knee is an important part of the body. It helps with movement and is made up of bone, ligament and tissues. With age, knees deteriorate and can result in chronic knee pain. This sometimes happens in youngsters as well. The 3 main reasons for knee pain are:

  • Injury – Broken bones, torn meniscus or ligament pull.
  • Medical conditions – Arthritis, gout
  • Chronic use – Osteoarthritis, tendinitis

JANU MARMAturmeric

According to Ayurveda, there are certain points, known as marma points, which can be stimulated to provide relief. The janu marma is located at the joining point of the leg and the thigh, at the knee. The janu marma on each leg can be stimulated for various health benefits which include, liver function, spleen health and water metabolism. This point can be massaged daily for 5 minutes using warm oils to prevent and reduce knee related aches. It can also work to boost liver health and promote better immunity overall. Pain due to arthritis sees significant release by massaging the janu marma.

AYURVEDIC HERBS AND SPICES

Ayurveda has numerous potent herbs and spices which can help alleviate knee pain. These must be consumed regularly up on advice by an ayurvedic professional. Depending on the type of knee pain and the severity, there are various herbs which can soothe the joint and promote better living.

GINGER

Ginger extract can be consumed to lessen knee pain and assist those with osteoarthritis to walk without difficulty. It has a strong anti-inflammatory effect which is comparable to OTC ibuprofen. Adding some ginger extract to tea and consuming this on a daily basis can provide pain relief from knee pain.

TURMERIC

Turmeric, similar to ginger, has anti-inflammatory properties. The curcumin in the turmeric can help the body in many ways. Ayurveda prescribes golden milk as a way to consume turmeric in the appropriate proportion daily.

ASHWAGANDHA

Ashwagandha has analgesic properties. This helps those suffering from knee pain to feel less pain and relieves any stress on the joint. This is due to the presence of glycoside in the roots and leaves.

GHEE

Ghee is a rich source of vitamin D and calcium. This promotes better bone health and joint movement. Add a small quantity of ghee to your daily diet for the best Ayurvedic regimen.
