Juvenile ArthritisJuvenile Arthritis develops in children. It is not contagious and there is no evidence that foods, toxins, allergies or vitamin deficiencies play a role. It is an Auto Immune Disease. There are three major types of Juvenile Arthritis i.e. Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Arthritis and Idiopathic Arthritis. In this condition, the immune system tends to become hyperactive and creates anti-nuclear antibodies, which start attacking its own cells. Dr.Smita Naram, Ayurvedic physician and herbalist, Co-founder, Ayushakti shares with us facts about juvenile arthritis, symptoms and home remedies to fight it.
