Dr. Rukamani Nair, Dr. Shivanikachroo, Dr. Ranjana Chawla

Rheumatoid arthritis is a severe crippling disease which affects approximately 2 to 3 percent of the worlds population. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of Naturopathy and Yoga intervention on regression of RA. A total number of 134 patients were divided into three Groups. Group-1 included yoga, naturopathy and allopathic medicines, Group-2 was provided yoga and allopathic medicines and Group-3 was the control Group provided only allopathic medicines. A significant difference was also found with decrease in inflammatory markers CRP (p<0.05), TNF-alpha (p<0.05) and ESR (p<0.05), immunological markers ACCPA (p<0.001) within all three groups and RF (p<0.001) only in group 1 but the study could not find significant difference in ANA. The study is one of its kind. The study concluded that Yoga and Naturopathy when combined with modern medicines provide important additional physical and psychological health benefits for RA patients.
