Maharchi says that acute rheumatism is flared by eating at irregular times and eating foods that are indigestible. As this does not digest well and get out easily, it gets rotted, fermented, and decomposed and formed into a poisonous material called “amamu.” It then travels through the veins and settles in joints causing arthritis. It stiffens the joints, inflames, and causes severe pain and burning sensation.
