DISEASE WISE AYURVEDIC THERAPIES

SPINE RELATED DISORDERS:

Any disorders relating the Spine is termed as Spine Related Disorders. Low Back Ache, Sciatica, Cervical Spondylosis, Ankylosing Spondylitis etc are some of the Spine Related Disorders.

Disorders involving the Lumbar Vertebrae and Sacrum and related soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments and nerves is manifested as Low Back Ache.
Sciatica is due to the compression of Sciatic Nerve or its roots due to herniation of the Lumbar Disc.

Cervical Spondylosis may be due ot degeneration of Cervical Vertebrae or Cervical Disc prolapse.
Ankylosing Spondylitis caused Ankylosing of Vertebra by infection.

Rheumatic Disorders

Rheumatoid Arthritis (Vataraktha):

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic systemic disorder characterized by tissues and organs causing destruction of articular structures and leading to akkylosis of the joints.

Treatment

In all these diseases there is vitiation of Vata Dosha or it may be associated with Pitta or Kapha Dosha. According to dosha predominance, the treatments are decided.
Treatment in Ayurveda is to bring the vitiated ‘Dosha’ back to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health. For treating these diseases, internal as well as external treatments are done. Herbal preparations are administered internally. Daily purgation is recommended to restore the vitiated ‘Dosha’ to the state of normalcy. Treatments like Snehana, Swedana, Abhyanga (Medicated Oil massage), Pathra Podala Swedam (Massage using herbal leaves), and Shashtika Pinda Swedam (Massage using Navara Rice) are done to prepare the body for Panchakarma Treatments. Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Virechana (Purgation using medicines), Vasthi (Medicated enema) are very much helpful in relieving and correcting abnormalities.
Diet – Vegetarian food to be consumed. Dairy products, sweets, oily foods, junk and fast foods, salty and sour foods, jaggery, black gram, fish, cold drinks and ice creams are to be avoided.
Life style – One should avoid cold breeze and excessive wind. Warm water bath is recommended. Take a gentle walk after consumption of food.

Obesity (Athisthoulyam):

Obesity is a body condition in which excess fat of the body is accumulated to such an extent that it can adversely effect the health. A person is said to be Obese when his Body Mass Index (BMI) is greater than 30 Kg. per M2 . Obese persons are prone to diseases like Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes, Malignancies, and Joint Disorders & Sleep Disturbances etc.

Treatment:

In Obese patients there is increase in Kapha Dosha and Medodhathu. We are doing special Ayurveda Panchakarma Treatments along with internal & external application of medicines to decrease the excess amount of fat in the body. After the specialty treatment the patient’s body weight is considerably decreased.

Mental disorders

Mental stress (Manasikaroga):

Stress is a normal physical response to unprecedented events that may disturb the normal balance of a person. In the present day life frustrations, excess demands and many other hassles can lead to mental tension, lack of concentration, insomnia, headache, and general loss of peace of mind.

Treatment:

According to Ayurveda mental and physical conditions are closely related. Any change in the equilibrium state of Manodoshas will alter Tridosha and vice versa. Special internal and external treatment, Panchakarma treatment with special medicines will bring the Manodoshas and Tridoshas to their equilibrium state. Yoga and meditation practice doing here relaxes mind and daily practice of yogasanas and breathing exercises reduces mental stress.

DIET:
Special Diets are given to patients which they need to follow during and after treatment. Those who follow these diets strictly can overcome all life styles diseases now a day.

EXERCISE:
Suitable slight physical exercises, Yoga and meditation are given to the patients who help them decrease their bodyweight and unwanted fat.

JOINT PAIN:

Joint Pain is seen as a symptom in the following diseases – Osteo Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthiritis, Gout etc.
Osteoarthritis or otherwise known as Degenerative Joint Disease is caused due to the degeneration of the Articular structures including cartilages and Articular surfaces of bones. Pain, Tenderness, Stiffness, Inflammation, Creaking and Locking of joints etc, are some the clinical features of this disorder.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic systemic disorder characterized by tissues and organs causing destruction of Articular structures and leading to akkylosis of the joints.
Gout is a disease in which there is deposition of Uric Acid in the Articular structures such as Cartilages, Tendons and also the surrounding tissues. Gout is characterized by increased blood uric acid level, which is marked by transient painful attacks of acute Arthritis.

INFERTILITY:

Primary infertility may be defined as the couple who have never been able to become pregnant after unprotected sexual intercourse for atleast one year. Secondary infertility may be defined as the couple who have been pregnant at least once, but have not been able to become pregnant again. Causes of infertility include a wide range of both physical and emotional factors. A couple’s infertility may be due to female factors, male factors, or both. Male factors may be Oligospermia, Decreased Sperm Motility, and Abnormal Sperm Morphology. Most common causes for Female Infertility are poly cystic ovarian disease, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis and uterine fibroids.

Treatment:

Male infertility treatment is explained under Vajikarana chikitsa. Special internal medicines using Vajikarana Dravyas (single drugs and preparations). Panchakarma Treatment including Virechana, Vasthi (special vajikarana vasthi) will increase the sperm count, motility and improves sperm morphology. Female infertility can be effectively managed with Ayurvedic Treatment. According to Ayurveda Arthavakshaya (menstrual problems) is due to decrease in pitta, Rasadathu, Rakthadathu or Rajas. Special internal medicines which increases pitta and raktha decreases obesity and induces ovulation are using in treating poly cystic ovarian disease. Internal medicine that reduces infection is using in treating pelvic inflammatory disease and endometriosis. Special Utaravasti strengthen the uterine endometrium increases the chance for conception.

Hypertension:

Hypertension can be termed as the blood pressure above 140/90 mm of Hg. Vasoconstriction and deposition of lipids may lead to Hypertension. It is important to monitor blood pressure regularly, or else it can lead to Stroke, Renal Failure, and Coronary Heart Disease etc.

Treatment:

In Hypertension there is srotovaigunyam (damage of blood vessels) along with prakopa of three doshas. Ayurveda treatment including internal medicines and Panchakarma purifies and relaxes srotas (blood vessels) and thereby reduces hypertension. Diet and life styles to be followed also given which prevent further srotovaigunyam.

Refractive errors:

The most common refractive errors are Astigmatism, Myopia & Hyperopia and their medical manifestations are described as :
Astigmatism is a condition in which an abnormal curvature of the cornea can cause two focal points to fall in two different locations – making objects up close and at a distance appear blurry. Astigmatisms may cause eye strain and may be combined with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Hyperopia commonly known as farsigh

tedness, hyperopia is the refractive error in which an image of a distant object becomes focused behind the retina, either because the eyeball axis is too short, or because the refractive power of the eye is too weak.
Myopia commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition in which, opposite of hyperopia, an image of a distant object becomes focused in front the retina, either because the eyeball axis is too long, or because the refractive power of the eye is too strong. Myopia is the most common refractive error seen in children.

Treatment:
In all this refractive errors Brimhana treatments are done. Special medicated oils are applied internally and externally. Panchakarma treatments including Nasyam, Sirovasthy and specialty treatments like Tharpana, Pudapaka will improve the condition of the patient. Repeat treatment is required to cure the condition.

Blindness:
Blindness is the condition of visual impairment due to physiological or neurological factors. Malnutrition, age related factors and disease like cataract, Diabetic retinopathy, Glaucoma are the common causes of blindness.

Mental retardation is a developmental disorder, in which there is limitation in intellective and cognitive activities of the child and he cannot fulfill his daily routine activities. Usually onset of mental retardation is below 18 years. Epilepsy is common in children with mental retardation and its severity and frequency depends upon the cause of mental retardation. There is direct relationship between severity of intellectual disability and frequency and severity of chronic epileptic seizures.

Treatment:

In development disorder like mental retardation effective treatments are explained in ayurveda text books. Brimhana chikitsa (treatment that gives nourishment to body building tissues) is done using special ghritas and oils internally and externally. Special Panchakarma Treatments like Virechana, Vasthi with Brimhana Dravyas also improve the condition of the patient. With these treatments the intellectual condition of the patient will improve and there is decrease in frequency of epileptic seizures.

Special Panchakarma treatment along with external and internal treatments to bring manasika doshas and saririka doshas to its equilibrium states. Special dhoopana dravyas are given to prevent grahavesa.

Detoxification

AYURVEDIC DETOXIFICATION:

Sree Chithra Ayur Home was built with the primary goal of offering a safe and enjoyable detoxification program of unquestionable and unparalleled result. We are very proud to offer you these detoxification and rejuvenation programs, sharing with you the oldest known medical system in the world, with pure, uncompromised value.
“Thanks to modern chemistry, eggs don’t stick to the pan, underarms are fresh all day, and SUV’s hit 60 in six seconds. But such convenience has a price: Chemicals that suffuse modern life – from well known toxins to newer compounds with unknown effects – are building up in our bodies and sometimes staying there for years.” (Article titled ‘The pollution within’ – ‘National Geographic’ Magazine, October 2006. Open the entire article by David Ewing Duncan in a separate window)
Toxins from chemicals in our food, our polluted environments, occasional drinking and smoking, stress and chemical medication all accumulate in our body over a period of time. These toxins are the cause of myriad diseases, and the effects of which are unfortunately anything but subtle. Western medicine has great difficulty removing fat soluble toxins safely and effectively from our body. Through the Ayurvedic Medical Science native to the Indian sub-continent, detoxification and rejuvenation is achieved with ‘Panchakarma’, which will not only facilitate the removal of these deep seated toxins, but do so with no negative side effects.
Removing these toxins and allowing your body to rejuvenate through Panchakarma requires a minimum of 7 nights. At Sree Chithra Ayur Home, we appreciate that no matter how much we may want to free ourselves of all of these toxins, we do not immediately have the time to do so.

BACK PAIN:

Low Back Ache (Kateegraha):

Disorders’ involving the
Vertebrae and related soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments and nerves are manifested as Low Back Ache. Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Degeneration of disc between the vertebrae or herniation of the disc may be the physical cause of Low Back Ache. Low Back Ache resulting from Disc Prolapse cause radiating pain to legs due to compression of Sciatic Nerve – (Sciatica – Gridhrasi).

ASTHMA & ALLERGY:

Allergies occur when a hypersensitive immune system reacts to a common or unusual substance. In some people it is hereditary, but one can also develop an allergy at any time in his or her life. Any substance, whatever its origin, is a possible allergen. Foods, Chemicals in foods, Medicines, and Environmental factors, including Pollen, Parasites, Dust, Animal hair, and Chemical toxins, for example, can all cause allergic reactions almost anywhere in the body.

Ayurveda sees ama (toxins) and low immunity as the primary causes of most allergies. Ama can settle at the digestive level or in the various tissues, with different symptoms at each level. Ama toxicity aggravates blood and Pitta, or it can aggravate Kapha, with different symptoms.

Low Back Ache (Kateegraha):

Disorders’ involving the Vertebrae and related soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments and nerves is manifested as Low Back Ache. Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Degeneration of disc between the vertebrae or herniation of the disc may be the physical cause of Low Back Ache.

Osteo Arthritis (Sandhigatavata):

Osteoarthritis or otherwise known as Degenerative Joint Disease is caused due to the degeneration of the Articular structures including cartilages and Articular surfaces of bones. Pain, Tenderness, Stiffness, Inflammation, Creaking and Locking of joints etc, are some the clinical features of this disorder.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (Vataraktha):

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic systemic disorder characterized by tissues and organs causing destruction of articular structures and leading to akkylosis of the joints.

Gout (Sandhigatavata):

Gout is a disease in which there is deposition of Uric Acid in the Articular structures such as Cartilages, Tendons and also the surrounding tissues. Gout is characterized by increased blood uric acid level, which is marked by transient painful attacks of acute Arthritis.

Treatment:

In all these diseases there is vitiation of Vata Dosha or it may be associated with Pitta or Kapha Dosha. According to dosha predominance, the treatments are decided.

Life style – One should avoid cold breeze and excessive wind. Warm water bath is recommended. Take a gentle walk after consumption of food.

Yoga and Yogasana:

The cause of the pain is most often due to pushing oneself beyond physical or emotional capacity. The spine needs stability and, therefore, the mind must first be steady. So, the first step is to learn to relax the mind and focus on the specific areas of back pain. With practice, you can redirect the body’s energy and affect the pain. Among the Yogasanas, when there is pain, one should start with simple back-bends, such as Locust, Cat, and Sunbird. To keep the spine aligned practice Hero Pose.
Along with treatment, physiotherapy, organized lifestyle, vegetarianism, suitable physical exercises, yoga and meditation should be practiced. Ayurvedic treatment, a holistic approach for Rheumatoid Arthritis has been designed identifying the fact that the power of mind can overcome any physical aberrations.

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT In Ayurveda Cervical spondylosis is discussed

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

In Ayurveda Cervical spondylosis is discussed as “GRIVA SANDHIGATA VATA”.

Cervcical spondylosis the most common disorder of the cervical spine.

Ayurveda can help you
Image shows cervical spine.

INTRODUCTION
Cervical spondylosis is a term used for age related wear and tear affecting the bones (vertebrae),joints and discs of the neck (cervical spine),usually occurs in men and women older than 40 and progresses with age,men usually develop it in earlier age than women.With the increase of age discs gradually breakdown and become stiffer as a result of which body reacts and develops bony growths (osteophytes) these osteophytes put pressure on the on the spinal nerve roots or spinal cord resulting in pain.

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS-AYURVEDIC CONCEPT
According to Ayurveda the Vata, the principle of movement is the predominant function with the skeleto-muscular system and the nervous system. Problems relating to these systems are predominantly caused by vitiated Vata. The vitiation of vata is caused by two mechanisms. One of them is obstruction to vata due to malfunctioning of kapha and pitta. The other one is increase of vata independently (the degenerative problems). The sacrum is situated in the Vata area of the body and this disease is caused by aggravated Vata and ama (toxins), which cause stiffness and reduce mobility in this area. Treatment involves detoxification and elimination of ama and also a Vata pacifying diet, lifestyle and herbal preparations.

CAUSES
1.Basic cause of cervical spondylosis is age related wear and tear.
2.Most of the people show age related wear and tear in the age of thirty as evidenced by x-rays but symptoms does not appear until later ages of life.
3.Drying and loss of elasticity in the spinal and cervical disks
4.Bulging and sometimes herniation of disks so that disk material protrudes from between two vertebrae
5.Stiffening of the ligaments connecting neck bones and muscles

Cervical spondylosis is caused by chronic degeneration of the cervical spine, the cushions between the neck vertebrae, and joints between the bones of the cervical spine. A previous neck injury can predispose to a person to cervical spondylosis.

SYMPTOMS
The signs and symptoms of cervical spondylosis are:

A stiff, painful neck
Shoulder, arm or chest pain
Tingling and pinprick sensations in the arms, hands, legs or feet
Numbness and weakness in the arms, hands, legs or feet
Lack of coordination
Difficulty walking
Abnormal reflexes
Loss of bladder or bowel control, or urinary or bowel retention

INVESTIGATION AND DIAGNOSIS
Your symptoms and history, along with an examination, may suggest that you have cervical spondylosis. You may also have imaging tests. The workup may include:

Neck flexibility assessment.
. Cervical spondylosis limits the range of motion in your neck. To observe this effect, your doctor may have you tilt your head toward each of your shoulders and rotate your neck from side to side.

Neurological exam.
To find out if there’s pressure on your spinal nerves or spinal cord, your doctor will test your reflexes and make sure you have sensation all along your arms and legs. He or she may watch you walk to see if spinal compression is affecting your gait.

Neck or spinal X-ray.
An X-ray may show abnormalities, such as bone spurs, that indicate cervical spondylosis.

Computerized tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
These tests may help your doctor determine the extent of damage to your cervical spine.

Myelogram.
This test involves generating images using X-rays or CT scans after dye is injected into the spinal canal. The dye makes areas of your spine more visible.

TREATMENT
The explanation of Cervical Spondylitis may seem weird to modern world people but Ayurveda is an ancient healing science utilizing herbs for centuries. Most of the patients respond very well to Ayurvedic treatment of Cervical Spondylitis as the principles of healing are focussed on balancing the “Vata” – the culprit behind pain due to nerves. So vitiated vata is controlled by herbs like Kaishore Guggul, Aloe vera juice (Kumari Saar), Yograj Guggul and Stress Support, as stress also causes stiffness in neck joints and Ashwagandha is the herb which is beneficial in stress related muscle stiffness. It is also a good natural anti-inflammatory herb without any side effects. Vata- the kinetic energy of the body is regulated by regular massage with Ayurvedic oils, internal consumption of medicated Cow’s ghee. Anti-inflammatory herbal tablets like Sinhnaad Guggul, Swarn Guggul (Guggul with Gold), Kaishore Guggul, Yograj Guggul, Arthriits Support are useful in managing pain and inflammation in Cervical Spondylitis. There are sometimes very painful condition in Cervical Spondylitis, that pain and inflammation needs to be tackled quickly. There are very common herbs for painful joint which work insantly. The herbs are very common like Dry Ginger, Turmeric (curcumin), Fenugreek, Ashwagandha, Sallaki (Boswellia), Guggul, and Giloy (Tinospora). The extracts of these herbs are more effective in reducing the pain and inflammation of all types of arthritis and joint pains.

Constipation must be avoided at all costs in Cervical Spondylitis. Constipation leads to vitiation of Vata and formation of gas, which may increase bouts of increased pain in neck.

In Cervical Spondylosis, Any external massage is not of much use. Violent massage with deep pressure is very harmful for the spondylosis patient. Only gentle massage over the muscles of the neck and shoulder joints should be applied and for this purpose Mahanarayan taila is best suited. This gentle massage can be given 2-3 times a day .In winter season; this medicated oil should be gently warmed before application. Guggulu, gum resin extracted from the plant is the best medicine for the treatment of cervical spondylosis. Ayurvedic physicians for the treatment of this condition popularly use a compound preparation named as simhanada guggulu. It is given in a dose of 2-4 tablets, 4 times a day. Usually hot water or hot milk id given to the patient after the administration of this medicines. This medicine has slightly laxative effects. For the patient to recover from cervical ailments, it is necessary that this bowel should move clearly and regularly. This medicine is very much helpful for this purpose. For patients having clear motions, this medicines should be given in a dose of 2 tablets and constipated patients the dose should be 4 tablets. If the constipation is not relieved even by taking 4 tablets the dose can be further increased to 6 tablets. At night some medicines should be given to the patients, which will act as a purgative. Triphala powder is the best medicine for spondylosis. One teaspoonful of triphala should be given to the patient, mixed with a cup of warm milk and one spoon of sugar. In the motions become regular by the intake of simbanada guggulu, then triphala powder should be given only twice a week otherwise it can be given every day.Hot fomentation on the vertebrae of the is very useful for cervical pains. In a big handkerchief about 500gms of salt should be kept over a frying pan till it becomes tolerably hot. Then this should be applied over the neck. Care should be taken to see that it should not be too hot. In that case, it may cause burns. Sometimes patients suffering from cervical Spondylosis develop some anesthetic patches in the back, neck, shoulders and arms because of the pressure from nervous systems .The patient is therefore not able to feel the quantum of heat applied during fomentation. It should therefore be the responsibility of the attendant to examine th

e heat of the bolus before applying it on the affected parts .This fomentation should be continued about ½ an hour every day. After fomentation the affected part should not be exposed to cold wind. In winter season therefore immediately after fomentation, the affected part should be covered with some wool engarment. In other seasons also the affected part should be kept covered with some cotton garments after fomentation. It is very convenient to take the fomentation before bedtime. After the fomentation the patient should go to sleep so that he does not run the risk of exposure. DietSour things particularly curd, are strictly prohibited. Fried things, pulses and various preparations of pulses are also contra- indicated in this condition. Bitter vegetables like bitter variety of drumstick, neem flowers and bitter gourd are very useful. Wheat is better than rice for the patient. He should however, avoid taking refined wheat which is known as maida (flour) and suji (semolina). To some extent they are constipated and do not help the patient in the recovery.

Lifestyle Exposure to cold, cold bath and any violent exercise of the muscles, including pressure, are very bad for the patients of Cervical spondulosis. Under the impression that this pain is being caused by some defects in the muscles, people undertake different types of neck exercises .While reading and writing ,one should maintain a comfortable posture. Morning walk gives some relief to the patient, but if it is cold outside the patient should always use a woolen scarf around his neck while going out of the house.

Home Remedies For Cervical Spondylitis
Use Cow’s ghee in your food. It is a best natural “Vata” reliever and gives nourishment to the nerves and other body parts.

1 tablespoonful of Turmeric should be consumed once everyday, after boiling it in milk for half an hour. It is a very useful herbal treatment for cervical spondylitis.

Constipation must be avoided at all costs. Constipation may increase pain in Cervical Spondylitis.

Herbs have divine healing powers and they have the ability to cure any disease from the root. They were gifted to us by God when he created life. So believe in God if you want to get rid of your problems !

Ayurvedic herbs are unique natural remedies for Cervical Spondylitis. Ayurvedic principles are different in many ways from modern medicine for example – Drinking water from a copper pan after keeping it overnight is also very useful in Rheumatoid arthritis and Cervical Spondylitis.

Consuming castor oil at night with milk or alone is a very useful herbal remedy for arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis and Cervical Spondylitis.

Improve your nutrition as first step.It plays important role to fight diseases. When nothing works, nutrition works a lot !

Use herbal juices like Aloe vera juice (Kumari Saar) and Amla Juice ( Amla Saar) in routine. Amla is the richest source of natural Vitamin C. Vitamin C improves the natural immunity of the body. 100 gm of Amla juice contains 30 times more vitamin C than 100 gm of oranges.
