Heal Bursitis Naturally with Ayurvedic Wisdom


Bursitis refers to a condition caused due to the inflammation of the bursa. Bursa is a sac located between the tissues of the muscles, bones, skin, and tendons. It is filled with a lubricating fluid, which helps to protect these tissues against the damage caused by rubbing or friction.


Bursitis occurs when this sac is damaged due to a repetitive, minor trauma, or a sudden, severe injury. Natural treatment for bursitis using herbal remedies may help control the inflammation and minimise the progression of this disease.


Bursitis usually affects the tissues of the elbows, hips, shoulders, knee, and the Achilles tendon. The risk of this condition may increase due to the overuse of any joint owing to the occupation of the person. The examples of high-risk occupations and activities for bursitis include gardening, carpentry, raking, shoveling, scrubbing, and painting. Sports activities such as tennis, skiing, golf, pitching, and throwing can also increase the risk of bursitis, especially of the shoulder joint. The use of remedies for bursitis of the shoulder can protect these joints and relieve the symptoms.


Incorrect posture and ignorance towards the importance of stretching or warm-up before exercises can also cause bursitis.


This condition may worsen as the age of the person increases due to the reduced elasticity and an inability of the joints and muscles to tolerate stress. Regular use of bursitis remedies can protect the tissues against these changes, thereby reducing the risk of this disease.


The common symptoms of bursitis include pain in the affected part that builds up suddenly or gradually depending on the nature of injury along with restricted movements. Ayurvedic treatment that includes the use of herbs and therapies like Ayurvedic massage and Patra Pinda Sweda can reduce the pain and ease the movements.


Bursitis Natural Treatment


The bursitis natural treatment based on the Ayurvedic principle of tridosha is aimed at correcting the imbalance in the Vata dosha. The herbal remedies help to maintain the balance of the three doshas or humors and thus, aims to provide long-term relief from the symptoms. The home remedies for bursitis of the knee also help to prevent the condition from worsening by enhancing the natural ability of the body to repair the damaged tissues and protecting them against further damage.


Natural Remedies For Bursitis


These are the natural herbs used traditionally for conditions like bursitis can help the patients to ease the symptoms and improve the mobility of the affected part.


  • Shalaki (Olibanum Indicum): Shalaki is an effective remedy for bursitis in the hip and other joints. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and reduces pain and inflammation in the affected part. It also helps to improve the range of movements of the joints.


  • Guggulu (Commiphora wightii): Guggulu possesses analgesic properties, which provide relief from the pain in the joints and muscles. It is a rejuvenative herb that helps to delay the effects of aging on the joint and muscle tissues thus reducing the risk of bursitis in the patients in the high-risk category. It can also help reduce swelling in the joints and improve the joint mobility. It also aims to increase the functions of these tissues and strengthens them. According to a research by Kanani Vipul P. et al, Kaishor Guggulu along with some other herbs exhibited analgesic, anti-inflammatory properties. It also helped in reducing fluid accumulation and stiffness thereby giving full range of motion and helping in early recovery.


  • Shunthi (Dry ginger): Shunthi is one of the best natural remedies for the shoulder bursitis pain relief. It helps to soothe the affected tissues and allows the person to perform the routine activities with ease. It also acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent and helps to reduce pain and swelling in the joints and muscles. It may also relax the muscles and relieve stiffness.


  • Rasana (Inula racemosa): Rasana has the ability to pacify the Vata dosha, which is responsible for causing this condition. It also provides relief from the pain in the muscles and joints. Rasana acts as a natural antipyretic agent, and may reduce fever that may accompany acute bursitis. Regular use of Rasana can prevent the progress of bursitis. It has the ability to purify blood and cleanse the body. It also helps to improve the metabolic processes of the body. These actions help to boost the healing and repair mechanisms of the body and protect the tissues from the toxins that can aggravate the symptoms.


  • Errand (Euphorbiaceae): Errand is a natural anti-inflammatory agent. It helps to relieve the symptoms of bursitis such as pain, swelling, and restricted movements. According to research by Vaidya Vasant Patil application of vatanashaka leaves eranda (euphorbiaceae) and rasna (Inula racemosa) is useful in soft tissue inflammation associated with bursitis.


  • Parijat (Nyctanthes arbortistis): Parijaat has the ability to boost the functions of the immune system. It helps to enhance the response of the immune cells to destroy the substances that can trigger inflammation in the joint and muscle tissues thus reducing the risk of bursitis. It also reduces joint pains and muscle stiffness.


  • Pipalimool (Long Pepper): Pipalimool can help in treating bursitis by maintaining the balance of the three doshas. It also has the ability to relieve pain, and swelling by producing an anti-inflammatory effect.


Ayurvedic Natural Medicine For Bursitis 


Ayurveda aims in dealing this condition in a holistic manner through the use of herbs, which stimulate the immune system to protect the joints and other tissues against inflammatory changes.


The ayurvedic doctors in Ayurvedic clinic in Melbourne also offer therapies such as Ayurvedic massage, and Patra Pinda Sweda to help the patients ease the pain and discomfort. The massage helps by increasing the blood circulation in the affected part and relieving the stiffness. In Patra Pinda Sweda therapy, the leaves of medicinal plants are used for the fomentation of the painful parts that results in an excessive sweating.


Ayurveda physician may advise combining the use of these therapies with the Panchakarma Detoxification and herbs to support elimination of harmful toxins from the body, which can otherwise aggravate the inflammation and thereby, worsen the condition.


We also recommend use of Ayurveda diet and lifestyle, which consists of foods rich in nutrients and less of the inflammation-triggering substances to reduce the symptoms and enhance the overall health of the patient.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
