Armour Against Arthritis in Ayurveda Osteoarthritis results from structural changes in the articular

Armour Against Arthritis in Ayurveda


Osteoarthritis results from structural changes in the articular cartilage in joints, usually those that are weight-bearing, such as the spine and knees. Hereditary factors may also be responsible for the onset of this disease. Call it Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis, it signifies ’inflammation of joints’. It is derived from two Greek words: ’athron’ meaning joints, and ’itis’ meaning inflammation. Arthritis occurs in various forms, the most frequent being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that usually occurs in the old age group. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a serious disease, which affect not only the joints of fingers, wrists, hip, knees, and feet, but also the muscles, tendons and other tissues of the body. Causes and Symptoms Main symptoms of Osteoarthritis are pain and stiffness in the joints.

Pain usually increases after exercise. Rheumatoid Arthritis is often called the ‘cooked food disease’. It usually develops gradually over several months, with persistent pain and stiffness in one or more joints. Ultimately the whole body is affected. Symptoms include anemia, colitis, constipation, deformed hands and feet. Osteoarthritis results from structural changes in the articular cartilage in joints, usually those that are weight-bearing, such as the spine and knees. Hereditary factors may also be responsible for the onset of this disease. Cure from the Kitchen Garlic Garlic is an effective remedy for Arthritis. It contains an anti-inflammatory property that accounts for its effectiveness in the treatment of this disease. Garlic may be taken raw or cooked, according to individual preference. Bananas Bananas, being a rich source of vitamin B6, have proved useful in the treatment of Arthritis.

A diet of only bananas for three or four days is advised in treating this condition. The patient is given eight or nine bananas daily during this period and nothing else. Lime The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of uric acid, which is the primary cause of some types of Arthritis. Juice of one lime, diluted with water, may be taken once a day, preferably first thing in the morning. Sesame Seeds Intake of teaspoon of black sesame seeds, soaked in a quarter cup of water overnight, has been found to be effective in preventing frequent joint pains. This water should be taken on empty stomach in the morning. Potato Juice Raw potato juice therapy is considered one of the most successful biological treatments for Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritic conditions. The traditional method of preparing potato juice is to cut a medium sized potato into thin slices, without peeling the skin, and place the slices overnight in a large glass filled with cold water. The water should be consumed in the morning on empty stomach. Fresh juice can also be extracted from potatoes. A medium-sized potato’s juice should be diluted with a cup of water and drunk first thing in the morning. Raw Juices One cup of green juice, extracted from any green leafy vegetable, mixed in equal proportions with carrot, celery, and red beet juices is good in Arthritis. The alkaline action of raw juices dissolves the accumulation of deposits around the joints and in other tissues.

Green Gram Soup This soup should be prepared by mixing a tablespoon of green gram in a cup of water, with two crushed garlic cloves. It should be taken twice a day. Copper Drinking water kept overnight in a copper container accumulates traces of copper, which is said to strengthen the muscular system. A copper ring or bracelet is worn for the same reason. Calcium Several patients have found that with regular intake of calcium, their joint pains have either been relieved or have disappeared entirely. This mineral should be taken in the form of calcium lactate. Coconut or Mustard Oil Warm coconut oil or mustard oil, mixed with two or three pieces of camphor should be massaged on stiff and aching joints. This not only increases the blood supply, but also reduces inflammation and stiffness. Ideal diet for Arthritis Patients The diet of an Arthritis patient should be planned so as to produce alkalinity in the blood. It should include fruits and vegetables in the form of salads, with at least, two cooked vegetables. In severe cases, it would be advisable to put the patient on raw vegetable juice therapy, to be taken three times a day, for about a week. Repeated juice fasts are recommended at intervals of every two months.

ACUTE CYSTITIS AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT Discuss ACUTE CYSTITIS In URINARY SYSTEM Discussion Forum

ACUTE CYSTITIS AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

Discuss ACUTE CYSTITIS In URINARY SYSTEM Discussion Forum In Case Discussion Section Of AncientAyurved.org

Ayurveda describes fourteen types of urinary tract disorders depending on the aggravated body energies. Ayurvedic regimens normally prevent surgical interference in these conditions. The line of treatment involves the removal of infection with internal detoxification, cleaning and removing any blockages in the urinary tract combined with herbs to tone the kidneys.

DEFINATION
Acute cystitis is an infection of the urinary bladder that occurs suddenly and follows a short but severe course.

WHO GETS IT

Acute cystitis is commonly seen in womens but can also occur in men’s.Women are more prone to develop cystitis because they have shorter urethras than men, and bacteria does not have to travel as far to enter the bladder. The distance between the opening of the urethra and the anus is also shorter in women than men.

CAUSES
(1)Acute cystitis is caused by bacteria that are normally present in your digestive system and on the skin around the rectum and vagina. The bacteria can pass through the urethra and up into the bladder. This can occur during sexual intercourse, because of poor personal hygiene, or due to a defect in which the urethra is shorter than normal. It is normally caused by the E.coli bacteria, which live in the bowel but can cross into the urinary system.

(2)Cystitis can also be caused by anything that blocks the flow of urine or makes it difficult for the bladder to empty completely, such as pregnancy or, in men, an enlarged prostate, tumor, or kidney stones.

(3) Acute cystitis in children is usually caused by urinary tract abnormalities

(4)A virus can also cause cystitis, but this form is rare in adults.

(5)Cystitis may also results from acute constipation.

(6)stress, poor diet, poor personal hygiene, oral contraceptive use, and those with immune system disorders can get acute cystitis.

SYMPTOMS
(1)A strong persistent urge to urinate
(2)Burning sensation while urinating
(3)Passing frequent and small amounts of urine
(4)Pain in the lower part of the abdomen or lower back
(5)Flank pain
(6)Penis pain (rare)
(7)Blood in the urine (hematuria)
(8)Cloudy and strong-smelling urine
(9)Fever, and chills
(10 )The inflamed bladder may spasm, causing pain
(11)A frequent urge to pass urine even when the bladder is empty
(12)Fatigue

TREATRMENT OF ACUTE CYSTITIS
Cystitis is a condition that Ayurveda has been studying minutely since ancient ages. Due to this, there are some very beneficial herbs that Ayurveda has found out having properties of treating the condition.

The following is a list of some of the most effective herbs used in the treatment of dysuria with their actions on the human body:-

Chandana
The powder of chandana mixed with milk and had on a regular basis is a valuable treatment for cystitis and other urinary inflammations. The effectiveness of chandana can be increased by the addition of fennel water or a piece of ginger in the infusion.

Kateli, Kantakari
Kantakari is a diuretic, i.e. it helps in the easy flow of the urine through the excretory system. It is also used as a cure for gonorrhea and urinary stones.

Kulfa
Kulfa is a very effective herb used in the treatment of urinary tract infections. It is common to both Indian as well as Greek traditions. Its leaves infused in water and taken twice a day can take care of the scanty urination caused due to excessive sweating. Regular use of purslane can provide immense relief from the burning sensation during micturation.

The following Ayurvedic preparations are highly beneficial in treating dysuria problems:-

Asava/Arishta

Sarivasava, Useerasava, Punarnavasava, Palashpushpasava, Dashamula Arishta,

Bhasma/Kashaya

Dashamula Kashaya
Veeratharadi Kashaya
Vanga Bhasma
Naga Bhasma

Choorna

Gokshuradi Choorna
Punarnavastaka Choorna

Ghrita

Traikantha Ghritam
Gokshuradi Ghritam

Lehya

Shatavari Gula

Rasa

Chandrakala Rasa

Vati

Gokshuradi Guggulu
Chandraprabha Vati
Dhanvantari
Kasturadi

It must be borne in mind that while taking any Ayurvedic preparation, the doctor must be consulted first. Most of the herbs do not have any side-effects (and are indeed a regular part of the diet), but some people may be allergic to certain herbs and may show adverse reactions.

SELF CARE TIPS

You can prevent acute cystitis by making sure you always empty your bladder completely when you go to the bathroom. Drink plenty of liquids, especially water. Cranberry juice may have infection-fighting properties. Urinate frequently, and avoid holding your urine for a long time after you feel the urge to go. Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement to prevent bacteria in the anal region from spreading to the vagina and urethra. If you are sexually active, empty your bladder as soon as possible after intercourse, wash your genital area to remove any bacteria that could travel up the urethra, and drink a full glass of water to help flush bacteria.

CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT DEFINATION Coronary artery

CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE AND ITS AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

DEFINITION

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a chronic disease in which blood flow is obstructed through the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygen – rich blood . It is the end result of the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of the arteries , that supply the myocardium ( the muscle of the heart ) with oxygen and nutrients . While the symptoms and signs of coronary artery disease are noted in the advanced state of disease , most individuals with coronary artery disease show no evidence of disease for decades . The disease is the most common cause of sudden death and is also the most common reason for death of men and women over 20 years of age .
First , the inner lining of the coronary artery is damaged . This in turn provokes an inflammatory immune response that causes further damage to the artery wall . Over the time , the endothelium is compromised and large , toxic LDL cholesterol molecules can penetrate into the artery wall . The white blood cells and cholesterol combine to form a lipid foam . In the early stages of atherosclerosis , these fatty streaks are present on the arterial wall as plaque deposits . Over time , the plaque may calcify or form a hardened ” shell ” . This reduces the artery’s ability to contract or expand and narrows the artery . Thus , it reduces the amount of blood that can flow through it . If the plaque deposit ruptures , a blood clot can form at the site of the rupture or pieces of the plaque can travel through the arteries until they eventually cause a blockage . A heart attack and cardiac arrest may result .
As the degree of coronary artery disease progresses , there may be partial or complete obstruction of the lumen of the coronary artery , severely restricting the flow of oxygen – carrying blood to the myocardium ( heart muscles ) . Individuals with this degree of coronary artery disease typically have suffered from one or more myocardial infarctions ( heart attacks ) and may have signs and symptoms of chronic coronary ischemia .

RISK FACTORS: –
(1) Hypertension , Diabetes Mellitus .

(2) Hypercholesteorlaemia .

(3) Diet rich in saturated fats .

(4) Diet low in antioxidants .

(5) Obesity .

(6) Age , sex , family history .

(7) Smoking , regular alcohol intake .

(8) Lack of exercise .

(9) Stress .

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS: –
Chest pain or Angina with physical stress . The pain may spread to the left arm or the neck , back , throat or jaw . Exertional dyspnoea is one of the primary signs . There might be numbness ( paresthesia ) or loss of feeling in the arms , shoulders or wrists . The person gets severe sweating , vertigo or dizziness . Sometimes it is associated with nausea or vomitting . There are characteristic ischemic ECG changes during stress test . ST segment depression and angina in the presence of left ventricular wall perfusion abnormalities during thallium or other stress perfusion test .

AYURVEDIC APPROACH FOR CAD: –
There is one entity in Ayurveda called as ” Hrid – Shula ” . The word Hrid derived from the original word Hridaya which means the Heart . Shula means pain . The meaning of Hrid – Shula is thus , pain in ( & around ) heart . The condition occurs due to increased or altered Vata Dosha in the heart & nearby area . As we know , the main force of movement of anything in any body system is controlled & done by Vata dosha . The indigested Meda Dhatu ( Cholesterol , LDL ) , Pitta dosha & Kapha dosha blocks partially or totally the normal route of vata dosha . Thus the Vata dosha gets altered too , creating pain at the Heart & nearby areas .
There are 5 types of each dosha . In all, each dosha accompanies the heart in some or the other way . When the dosha alters , some problem occurs as per the doshas . These problems can be defined as follows : –

(1) The Prana Vayu ( type of Vata dosha ) alteration shows exertional dyspnoea , cough , hiccups , drowsiness .

(2) The Vyana Vayu ( type of Vata dosha ) alteration shows increased heart rate & swelling at ankle joints .

(3) The Sadhak Pitta ( type of Pitta dosha ) alteration shows loss of confidence , scare , feeling of self heart beats .

(4) The Avalambak kapha ( type of Kapha dosha ) alteration shows bigger heart ( cardian dialatation ) .

(5) The Ojas alteration shows dizziness , coma , cyanosis .

Treatment as per Ayurvedic Approach : –
In the body , Hriday ( heart ) is one of the most important organ . It is called as Marma Sthana ( Vital organ ) . The most important treatment is to cut the Apachit Meda Dhatu ( LDL ) . The treatment is directed to treat the hypercholesterolaemia . The use of Gold bhasma is beneficial . The Gold bhasma provides vital strength to the myocardium ( heart muscles ) . Thereby restoring the normal functioning of the heart .

The most important role of Ayurvedic medicines is in preventing or reducing atherosclerosis and thereby controlling coronary artery disease . Ayurvedic formulations like various forms of Guggulu , Chandraprabha vati and herbal combinations of various herbs like Amalaki ( Emblica officinalis ) , Arjuna ( Terminalia arjuna ) , Kutki ( Picrorrhiza kurroa ) , Punarnava ( Boerrhavia diffusa ) and Triphala are very useful in reducing blood cholesterol , fatty deposits in the blood vessels , atherosclerosis , blood pressure & excess fat deposition all over the body .

The use of Panchkarma can be done strictly under supervision . The panchkarma helps to restore the body doshas & maintains the metabolism . Not all , but some therapies of panchkarma can be done very effectively in the treatment of Hrid – Shula . The Virechana ( purgation ) , Basti ( Enema ) , Hrid Basti , Whole body massage helps a lot . The most basic reason of Cholesterol is treated very effectively with these therapies .

The use of Sattvavajay Chikitsa ( mental support , mental rehabilitation ) is the forefront treatment . It is very necessary to provide mental support for the affected person . The positive approach towards life & health is very important aspect . The calm mind can do this . The use of Shirodhara is the best remedy for this . It soothes the brain & refreshes the mind .

The diet should be appropriate too . The use of green vegetables & leafy vegetables is important to maintain the normal metabolism . Fresh fruits like apple , pomegrante , grapes , papaya , sweet lime etc are beneficial . Cutting down sticky foods like cheese , butter , sweets , sugar contained foods , preserved foods , white bread , saturated fat should be done . Fresh juices of fruits & soups of vegetables do wonders . The use of soup of Bottle Gourd everyday is one of the most important diet for any type of cardiac disease .

SELF CARE TIPS
What can I do to lower my risk of CAD ?

1) Don’t smoke .

2) Limit your alcohol consumption .

3) Control your blood pressure .

4) Daily exercise .

5) Eat a healthy diet . Add foods to your diet that are low in cholesterol and saturated fats , because your body turns saturated fats into cholesterol .

6) Cultivate emotional health & happiness .

Meditation : –

” Meditation ” is one of the best ways to relax , dissolve stress and allow the body to heal . It is often one of the first – line treatment of heart disease in Ayurveda . It calms the mind , nerves and emotions . An extended period of rest or reduced activity , both physical and mental , is recommended . As far as possible try to avoid stress , emotional worries and anxiety . Use Meditation to examine / understand what you really want to do in life .
Give up anger , aggression and assertion . Do 10 to 20 minutes of meditation twice a day for the well being .
Various Yoga postures ( Asanas ) and breathing exercises ( Pranayama ) provide benefits . Avoid heavy exercise . Minimize the unwanted travel .
Get plenty of sleep . Ayurveda considers sleep just as important as diet in maintaining the health . Research has linked sleep deprivation to depression , blood pressure problems and other issues that increase the risk of heart disease . Choose calm , restful activities during the evening to help the mind disconnect from the stressful senses . Keep the bedroom activities comfortable and the space clear of the television , computers and work – related materials .
