Quick Take

A promotional video clip is advertising an ayurvedic oil for all types of joint pain. However, upon further analysis, it was determined that the claim was false.

rating

The Claim

A widely shared Facebook post is marketing a universal solution for all joint problems through a promotional video. The video features renowned cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty and popular TV anchor Anjana Om Kashyap.

Dr Devi shetty claim

We found social media claims on numerous deceptive items, including a topical vitiligo spray, an at-home teeth scaler, and a universal herbal soap, after conducting a thorough examination. We have carefully fact-checked these claims to ensure that they are accurate.

Fact Check

Is it true that Dr. Devi Shetty is supporting a joint pain relieving ayurvedic oil?

No. Absolutely not. A promotional video clip featuring popular news presenter Anjana Om Kashyap and Dr. Devi Shetty promotes an ayurvedic joint pain relief therapeutic presents a fictitious conversation. We began to suspect the video was a deepfake since the nation’s top cardiologist, Dr. Devi Shetty, the chairman and founder of Narayana Institute, was advocating an ayurvedic joint pain relieving oil. Thus, it should be clarified that NO SUCH INTERVIEW EXISTS!!

We also executed the Google Reverse Image with the keyframe of the viral video. Our research led us to Dr. Devi Shetty’s video, “Dr. Devi Shetty Shares a Message on World Hypertension Day’, which was posted on Narayana Health’s official YouTube channel. 
Additional audio-related evidence pointed out that their voices had been fabricated. We observed that the two speakers’ lip movements in the video do not correspond with the background audio track. Hence, it can be said that the widely circulated video had been digitally altered. 

Does the video support a credible product?

No, not at all. Please be aware that the aforementioned product has been recommended as an all-purpose solution for joint-related problems. The same is being marketed with the claims “100% ayurvedic,” “side effect-free,” and “medication-free.” However, it is essential to note that the product description does not include the ingredient percentage. This prompts questions regarding its transparency. Furthermore, the product is not licenced by the associated regulatory organisation.

It is critical to comprehend that Ayurveda does not recommend a single treatment for every kind of joint pain. Rather, it supports customised care based on the unique composition of the patient and the individualised imbalance that leads to discomfort. Ayurvedic medicine considers a number of variables. These mostly consist of the type and cause of the joint pain as well as the person’s overall state of health. Ayurvedic management includes herbal formulations, dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments, and therapeutic methods. The objectives of each of these are to relieve joint pain and restore equilibrium. Consequently, it is generally believed that tailored care is more successful in handling joint pains.

Furthermore, the lack of information regarding potential contraindications or safety precautions raises questions about the product’s efficacy and safety. Consequently, the post and the product lack credibility.

Should one depend on at-home options to address every kind of joint pain?

No, not right away. While at-home remedies can provide relief from various types of joint pain, their effectiveness depends on the underlying cause of the pain.

Orthopeadic

On asking if at-home measures are beneficial for joint-related issues, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Saransh Gupta suggested that thirty is the age at which bone mass peaks. A lower bone mass increases the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Fortunately, by supplying essential nutrients like calcium, proteins, zinc, magnesium, vitamin K2, and vitamin D, a range of dietary and lifestyle choices can support and strengthen bones. Dr. Gupta advises avoiding alcohol, consuming fizzy drinks, and maintaining a high-salt diet for optimal bone health.

Dr Kiran Kulkarni

Dr. Kiran Kulkarni, FIFA-AFC Medical Officer and Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine from Dharwad, Karnataka, also advises that over-the-counter options may provide temporary relief from pain and discomfort, but they do not address the underlying pathology in the long term.

Topical treatments such as ointments or gels can help reduce inflammation and relieve pain from acute injuries like strains, sprains, and tendonitis. However, long-term conditions like osteoarthritis may require a more comprehensive approach, including lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, and prescribed oral medications. Prescribed topical analgesics are often used for both acute and chronic joint pain as a substitute for oral drugs, potentially with fewer systemic side effects. The decision to use a topical ointment should be based on the duration and severity of the pain, personal preferences, and any underlying medical issues. Consulting a doctor can help in finding the best course of action for safely and effectively treating joint pain.
