Emotions that Block

The body is an instrument for the perception of the world, which reflects beliefs and thoughts. We ourselves develop diseases because the body responds to every thought and emotion. Pain is the result of destructive thoughts and emotions.

Tendonitis

Tendonitis (or tendinitis) is an inflammation or irritation of the tendon - which is like a thick cord (fibrous tissue) that attaches muscles to a bone. 

Tendonitis can occur in almost any area of the body where a tendon connects a bone to a muscle, but  most common places are - base of the thumb, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, but it can also affect the wrists, hips, and heels.  

The condition causes pain and tenderness near the affected joint, which is worse with movement of that joint.

Tendonitis can get anyone, but it is more common in adults, especially those over age 40. 

There are many activities that can cause tendonitis, including – gardening and raking, carpentry, also cleaning house, painting, scrubbing, playing tennis or  golf, skiing. Incorrect posture at or poor conditioning before exercise or playing sports also increases a person's risk. Other risk factors for tendinitis are any type of artritis,  thyroid disorders, or  medication reactions and also can be as a reaction of  dog bite .


In Ayurveda Tendonitis can either be inflammatory or non-inflammatory unlike modern medicine which has classified all types as inflammatory. If Vata or Kapha is the cause of the disorder then it will be of a non-inflammatory nature. If Pitta is the cause then it will be inflammatory in nature.

Ayurveda treatment is based on the causal Dosha

Treatment begins with remove the factors that are causing the Dosha to increase and provoke the problem  - in Ayurveda it means release of toxins from the body using different Ayurvedic  therapy methods of Panchakarma ( depenging of Dosha ) , thenext step would be to prescribe specific Ayurvedic external treatments to reduce pain and discomfort- includes the application of special oils and herbal compress (Lepa) – which is pastes of herbs or  ointment, prepared  according to Dosha to heal the injury . The following step would be to increase the strength of the tendons, ligaments and muscles at the painful site and surrounding areas - this can be done with mild exercise, yoga asanas , including Ayurvedic massage therapies . During treatment, your Ayurvedic doctor may also recommend Ayurvedic products for internal use like Yograj Guggul and Boswellia curcumin. All Ayurvedic  products are pure, natural and vegetarian. These are not having any side effect so can be used for a prolonged period of time.
