    Upanaha Treatment

    Have you got a sore shoulder, elbow or knees? ?

    This Ayurvedic treatment may be able to help you. It is called Upanaha.

    It is an authentic Ayurvedic treatment used to treat bursitis, frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis and more.

    The word Upanaha is a Sanskrit word which means bandage. It is a treatment where a warm herbal paste is applied on the affected areas followed by bandaging it.

    A fine powder of Ayurvedic Herbs are made into a paste mixed with a warm oil, amla dravya and saindhava/ rock salt. The warm paste is applied (after an oil application) over the affected area, the paste is then covered with Vatahara leaves such as Nirgundi and Eranda patra (Castor oil leaves, seen in the picture).

    It is best if the paste is applied a finger girth in thickness. Other factors to be considered are a proper consistency, warmth and wetness of the paste. ???

    The area is then bandaged and left for 8-12 hours before it is removed. The herbal paste which is applied in the evening should be removed in the morning and the one applied in the morning is kept undisturbed until the evening.

    The medicinal paste reduces the swelling and pain and improves the blood circulation of the area.
