Ankylosing Spondylitis treatment, cause and Homeopathy

Homeopathic treatment is strongly recommended along with conventional treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)

What is Ankylosing spondylitis (AS)?

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic form of arthritis affecting the joints in the spine and the sacroilium in the pelvis. Larger joints like the knee can also be affected. It is initially characterized by pain and stiffness of the lower back, followed by severe rigidity of the spine due to fusion of the spinal vertebrae (bamboo spine). The pain may radiate from the lower back to the buttock or the back of the thighs in its early stages and generally increases on rest, and improves with physical activity.

Causes of AS: 

Ankylosing spondylitis is considered to be an autoimmune disease though the responsible autoantibody has so far not been pin pointed. App. 90% of people with Ankylosing spondylitis have a gene called HLA-B27.


Approximately 90% of individuals express HLA B27 genotype. An x-ray or MRI will show changes in the spine or sacroilium. During acute attacks there is usually an increase in CRP (C - reactive protein) and ESR

Other symptoms: 

Inflammation of the white of the eye (iridocyclitis) causing eye pain and generalized fatigue are some common symptoms associated with Ankylosing spondylitis. 

Stages of AS: 

Ankylosing spondilitis is regarded as an autoimmune condition in which inflammation of the ligaments and joints of the spine and sacroilium results in deposition of bone tissue. The tissue overtime fuses the bones causing rigidity and immobility of the spine and hip joints. The Joint degeneration and fusion is a chronic process and if appropriate measures like exercise, proper posture and homeopathic medicines are introduced early, the condition can be prevented from worsening.

Role of Homeopathy in Ankylosing spondylitis: 

The treatment used at our centres has proven to play a vital role in relieving symptoms of those affected by this condition, without any side effects. Our treatment can be taken along with conventional medicines. As the symptoms subside, most patients successfully lower the dosage or significantly lower their dependence on medication. 

Homeopathy plays a vital role in preventing progression, controlling the abnormal immune response and relieving pain and stiffness as witnessed in most cases treated at our centres. Optimum results are achieved in mild to moderately affected patients, prior to excessive bone fusion. Most patients treated here were slowly weaned off their conventional medicines like NDAIDS, Naproxen, Sulphasalazines (SAAZ), Indomethacin etc as they were able to sustain either without them or on a very low dose regimen.

There are numerous homeopathic medicines indicated for AS some of which are: Kali Carbonicum, Radium Brom, Rhus Toxicodendron, Calc Phos etc. However, these are symptomatic remedies and will help in palliating or temporarily relieving the symptoms. 

An ideal approach will be to prescribe a remedy on the basis of the totality of all the symptoms the patient presents with as the goal of the treatment is to correct the possible faulty immune response. This holistic or constitutional approach yields positive results in most patients treated at our centres and is strongly recommended for anyone suffering from this condition.

Specialized Homeopathic treatment at HomeoConsult RD

The precise mechanism which causes Rheumatoid Arthritis is unknown and is widely believed that a faulty immune response in which the immune system attacks the joints and organs causes the degeneration and destruction of the joints.

Pain killers and steroids used conventionally only suppress the symptoms of RA and does not guarantee any long term benefit as compared to homeopathic medicines.

The correct homeopathic remedy, based on the constitution and peculiar signs and symptoms of the individual, can guarantee a disease-free or symptom-less period as well as ensures that your immune system stabilizes, preventing relapses.

Structural or degenerative changes already taken place cannot be reversed completely. However a significant improvement in joint mobility, flexibility and strength can be definitely achieved. Your treatment outcome can result in:
