Chikungunya and Ayurvedic Treatment

Chikungunya and Ayurvedic Treatment

What is Chikungunya fever?

Chikungunya is a form of viral fever spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a breed largely active during the day that lasts for 5-7 days. The virus is hardly life threatening, but frequently causes intense joint pain that persists for a long period of time.

Chikunguniya symptoms:

Common symptoms of the illness such as fever upto 102.2 °F, petechial rashes, spots on the trunk and limbs and arthritis affecting multiple joints are very common. Other nonspecific symptoms like headache, conjunctivitis, remote photophobia and insomnia etc may occur soon after the incubation period. While most symptoms usually last for 5 – 7 days, the fever rapidly subsides in two days.

Chikungunya history In India

Chikunguniya has emerged as a serious health threat in India. States such as Andhra Pradesh, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and Delhi were the most affected parts of the country. Karnataka and Maharashtra recorded a staggering 752,245 and 258,998 numbers of cases, making these largest affected states in India. (Who: 2006)

Preventive Measures

There is no real vaccine for the virus, but the best method to prevent the virus is to avoid mosquito bites. It is absolutely necessary to take preventive measures to avoid or eliminate mosquito breeding friendly spot’s such as rain-filled containers, water storage units, open food containers, saucers under potted plants, drinking bowls for domestic animals and discarded tyres in the vicinity of the workplace and residential areas. (WHO: 2006).

Management of Chikun gunya – In Ayurveda:

Line Of Treatment is Like Amavata (Pachana,Deepana,Rookshana,Mridu ShodhanaBrihmana.)
In the acute phase of illness, the prime intent should be to control fever. Medicines such as Amrithothara kashaya, Shaddharana choorna, Sudarshana vati,Vettumaran gulika,Nimbamrithadi Eranda,Avipatti Choorna and Amritharishta have reflected effectiveness in combatting fever.

In the post fever phase, Chikungunya leads to arthralgia/arthritis that causes swelling & pain that could persist for a period of six months to a year. Therefore it becomes vital to control post-fever arthritis in the very early stage of symptoms. Ayurveda medications & therapies are found to be extremely effective in treating this condition.

Medication

Classical medicines such as Rasnaerandadi kashaya, Punarnavadi kashaya, Chandraprabha gulika and Punarnavasava, Kaishora guggulu,Raasnagugul ,Balaguloochyadi Kashaya have been found quite effective in managing post-fever pain & swelling.
Therapies combined with ingestible medication can give faster & effective result in treating the symptoms of Chikungunya.
The following therapies are used to treat the symptoms of Chikungunya.
1. Choorna Sweda
2. Valukasweda
3. Dhanyamla Dhara
4. Dasamoolam KashayaDhara
5. Lepana With Jadamayadi Choorna,Grihadhoomadi Choorna,Ellunishadi Choorna…

Question posted by: sindhu
what are the remedies (medicines) for arthritis?will we get a permanent releif from arthritis ?
Reply: Arthritis is one of the most common ailment for which Ayurvedic help is being sought these days. Arthritis literally means “joint inflammation”. Arthritis refers to a group of rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints. Any part of your body can become inflamed or painful from arthritis. Some rheumatic conditions can result in debilitating, even life-threatening complications or may affect other parts of the body including the muscles, bones, and internal organs. Ayurveda attributes cause of any disease to an imbalance in one or all of the doshas, and hence every disease has a supporting theory by the name of tridosha. Ayurveda suggests that arthritis is caused primarily by an excess of ama and lack of agni. Poor digestion and a weakened colon, resulting in the accumulation of undigested food and the buildup of waste matter can cause this. Poor digestion allows toxins to accumulate in the body, and problems with the colon allow the toxins to reach the joints. Healthy, flexible joints rely on strong digestion and metabolism. Poor eating habits and weak digestion allow impurities to accumulate, circulate and build up in the joints. This inhibits joint function, mobility and comfort. AIM OF TREATMENT So, the way to treat arthritis is to stimulate the digestive fire (agni) and to treat the ama. Ayurvedic approach to Arthritis includes: 1. Strengthening the metabolic pathways that prevent blockage of circulatory channels to joints, by impurities 2. Strengthening of digestion to create nutritional plasma that is pure and easy to assimilate 3. Improving the lubrication of joints 4. Anything that aggravates, or overly activates Vata, will increase the sensitivity and experience of pain in the body. Therefore an important component in treating arthritic pain is to balance and stabilize Vata. This in tern will balance the nervous system function and its sensitivity to pain. As with almost all diseases Ayurveda distinguishes three categories of arthritis, corresponding to more imbalance of vata, pitta, and kapha. To treat this condition properly, it is vital to carefully diagnose which dosha is more imbalanced. Regards, Dr.P.T.N.Vasudevan Mooss, SNA, www.thaikatmooss.com Telephone: 91-487-2441947, 2441948

Question posted by: binoy
What is vasculitis? Is it fully cuarable, What is the cause
Reply: Vasculitis is a general term for a group of uncommon diseases that feature inflammation of the blood vessels. The blood vessels of the body are referred to as the vascular system. The blood vessels are composed of arteries that pass oxygen-rich blood to the tissues of the body and veins that return oxygen-depleted blood from the tissues to the lungs for oxygen. Vasculitis is characterized by inflammation in and damage to the walls of various blood vessels. Each of the vasculitis diseases (also, as a group, referred to as vasculitides) is defined by certain patterns of distribution of blood vessel involvement, particular organ involvement, and laboratory test abnormalities. The word vasculitis is derived from the Latin “vasculum”, vessel + “- itis”, inflammation. Another term for vasculitis is angiitis. When arteries are the inflamed blood vessels, the condition is also referred to as arteritis. When the veins are inflamed, it is referred to as venulitis. The actual cause of these vasculitis diseases is usually not known. However, immune system abnormality and inflammation of blood vessels are common features.Regards, Dr.P.T.N.Vasudevan Mooss, SNA, www.thaikatmooss.com Telephone: 91-487-2441947, 2441948

My wife is 46 years old. Fairly healthy. She feels that her throat is jammed. Feels uneasy. The throat is dry as if it is going to break. Various tests were carried out by ENT specialists.

What is “sandhi Vatham”? What are the symptoms and what are the remedies for sandhi vatham? which age group is prominent for sandhi Vatham? What are the Precautions to be taken?
Reply: Dear Pavitran, The vitiated Vata when get lodged at one or more than one Sandhi and producing the features like pain in the joint, swelling on palpation, crepitus and stiffness in the joint. This can be corelated with Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of joints characterized by pain that is relieved by rest, morning stiffness that last for a very short time and joint inflammation (Swelling) is minimal. Involvement of Vata indicates degenerative process in Sandhi Vata. Pain that is relieved by rest and worsens with activity points towards involvement of aggraVataed Vata. Moreover in Sandhi Vata there is neither inflammation nor systemic complaints which are in line with the characteristics of Osteoarthritis.

Question posted by: Dilip
Dear Sir, Can you point out the symptoms of arthritis.And the precautions that a arthritis patient should take.
Reply: Dear dilip, Arthritis is one of the most common ailment for which Ayurvedic help is being sought these days. Arthritis literally means “joint inflammation”. Arthritis refers to a group of rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints. Any part of your body can become inflamed or painful from arthritis. Some rheumatic conditions can result in debilitating, even life-threatening complications or may affect other parts of the body including the muscles, bones, and internal organs. Ayurveda attributes cause of any disease to an imbalance in one or all of the doshas, and hence every disease has a supporting theory by the name of tridosha. exercise,physiotherapy and drugs. The common varities of arthritis in our country are Osteoarthritis,Rheumatoid arthritis,Rheumatic fever,GOUT and SLE. If the joint pain is associated with swelling of joints,redness of the skin over the joints,increase in the skin temperature,pain aggravated by active movements it is arthritis Management and diet may vary according to the vitiation of doshas. I can suggest a general outline on this regard. Foods which are easily digestible and do not make wind or gas are good. Vegetable juices and soups are good. Juices of carrot, beat root and cucumber mixed together is also beneficial. Green salad with a dressing of lemon juice and a little salt is also good. Fruits like apples, oranges, grapes and papaya can be taken. Cooked vegetables like squash, zucchini and pumpkin are good. Cooking with spices like cumin, coriander, ginger, asafetida, garlic, fennel and turmeric is also helps a lot. Avoid eating hot, spicy and fried foods, sweets, wind forming foods like cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, okra and potatoes should be prohibited. Avoid taking too much tea, coffee, alcohol, white sugar, yogurt, chocolate and cocoa, excessive smoking Sleeping during day time, staying up late in the night and mental tensions like worry, anxiety, fear, stress and grief etc., should be given up. Regular physical exercise and every day massage with oil, once or twice a week, should form an important part of life style.

Ayurvedic Pregnancy Care and Motherhood

Ayurvedic Pregnancy Care and Motherhood
Ayurveda places an enormous emphasis on the importance of caring for the mother before during and after pregnancy. “It is the woman who procreates children and propagates the human species. Dharma (righteousness), artha (wealth), lakshmi (auspiciousness), and loka (the entire universe) are represented in every woman.” (CS, Cs 2/3) Ayurveda regards the woman and her ability to produce and care for children as the basis of family life which, in turn, is the very foundation of society. Therefore, only if the women of a society are safe, protected, and content can these qualities manifest in that society.
Ayurveda prescribes specific nutritional measures for the growth and protection of the woman to keep her vital and pure. In one of its most famous teaching analogies, Ayurveda compares human conception to the germination and sprouting of a seed and its transformation into a sapling. When the male and female seeds unite and the soul enters the union, an embryo (garbha) is created. Ayurved gives great importance to the quality of the seed (ovum). In addition to the female seed, the mother also provides the ’ideal terrain’ (i.e. the uterus) into which the seed is to be planted. Guidelines for correct sexual intercourse are also generally outlined. Young women less than sixteen years of age and boys under twenty should not bear children. Nature does not support pregnancy nor family life begun during the brahmacharya period (student years, ages birth to 20).The general rules of pre-natal care are also given and are perhaps the most provocative of all. The husband, parents, siblings, and other family members are advised to oversee the pregnant woman’s diet and encourage activities that are healthy and enjoyable to her and beneficial for the child developing in her body. Similar to its strategy to promote longevity, the Ayurvedic approach towards motherhood, that is pregnancy and childbirth, is indeed a holistic one. Ayurvedic recommendations touch upon the diet, behavior, activities, and even the spiritual actions of not only the mother but the entire family into which the child will be born.
Garbhavakranthy
The wisdom regarding the general management of pregnancy is found in both the Charaka and Sushruta Samhitas under the subject of “Garbhini Vyakarana”. There are separate chapters for general management, specific management, diseases in pregnancy and their treatment and many other practical pieces of advice . Guidelines regarding diet, activities, behavior and mental activity (ahar, vihar, achar and vichar, respectively) are also detailed. The physician is cautioned to be very vigilant during the management of pregnancy. “If a cup filled with oil right up to the brim is to be carried without spilling even a single drop, every step has to betaken with care”. (CS Cs 8/22) Ayurveda advises the same degree of care and attention in the management of a pregnant woman. The goal is the protection and nourishment of both the growing fetus and the mother.
The concept that improper decisions and lifestyle are responsible for the genesis of disease is a well-known Ayurvedic idea. Crowded urban living in particular has been cited in the Charaka Samhita as causing disease and shortening lifespan. (CS Cs1/1) From the moment the pregnancy is confirmed, the woman is counseled to follow certain guidelines of living. The Ayurvedic physician gently offers supervision from the very beginning, even before the actual conception of the child, so that the pregnancy can terminate in a normal delivery after a normal period of gestation. Especially when she approaches full term, critical care is necessary as “one foot is considered to be in this world and the other in the world of Yama” (the god of death). Complete and healthy delivery includes delivery of the placenta. If the delivery is not complete and normal, the woman is likely to be affected by one or the other of a list of 64 maladies, which are described in detail in Garbhini Vyakarana.
For a couple to produce healthy offspring, both the partners should be careful about their diet, activities, behavior and emotional status before as well as after conception. One has to keep this in mind throughout the pregnancy.
General Rules from Inception of Pregnancy to Delivery
The mother-to-be should:
Try to maintain a cheerful mood
Be clean, neat and well dressed
Dress in simple clothes and ornaments
Engage in peaceful and benedictory activities
Sleep under a roof in a clean environment (not infested with insects such as mosquito’s etc.)

The food she eats should be delicious to her. Much of the diet should be in a liquid or semi-liquid form, moist, nourishing, enriched with all the six rasas (tastes) and supplemented with deepana (agni promoting) plant medicines and spices which are known to increase appetite and digestive power. Ayurveda specifically mentions the following foods as healthy during all trimesters of pregnancy: rice, milk, wheat (godhuma), amalaki fruit, raisins, grapes, mango (amra) butter, ghee, and small quantities of raw sugar (sarkara).
She should also avoid:
· Excessive sex particularly during early and late pregnancy
· Overeating or fasting
· Speaking in a loud voice

Garbhini Paricharya
The development of the fetus in the uterus is discussed in the Charaka Samhita in the section called Garbhava Kranti, and special regimens are prescribed for each month in the subsection Garbhini Paricharya. The basic wisdom to be understood is to take greater care during the first three months of pregnancy and during the eighth and ninth months.
During the first trimester, stress is laid on stabilizing the pregnancy and nurturing the uterine bed through rasa and rakta dhatus. The embryo gets nourishment directly by percolation (upsnehan). Hence more jaleeya (liquid) substances such as juicy fruits, coconut water, milk, and so on are advocated.
In the first month, sipping cold milk along with meals and eating only in the morning and evening (i.e breakfast and dinner). Tandulodaka (lit.water from rice washing; e.g. modern equivalent: rice milk) During the second month, the intake of warm milk decoctions medicated with sweet herbs like Vidari, Sarkara (Cane juice), Shatavari, Yasthimadhu, Brahmi, all of which are jivaneeya (life-supporting) and garbhasthapak (helping maintain implantation). Honey and ghee are also recommended. During the third month Ayurveda recommends warm milk with added honey and ghee. Also, the ground rind of amalaki fruits with coldwater.
During the fourth month, the head, torso and extremities start to become differentiated, the motor and sensory nervous tissues start to develop, the heart takes its place, and the fetus makes known its needs and desires via the mother’s physiology. This is the period when the woman craves for certain foods and tastes. Normally, the needs of both the fetus and the mother are the same. Therefore, Ayurveda recommends that the mother´s cravings be fulfilled as far as possible, as long as they are not absolutely unreasonable (i.e. a diabetic mother craving excessive ice creamæ a hypertensive mother craving excessive salt, etc.). Shankhpushpi, gulkand, and brahmi help in calming the nerves and are also good prajasthapans (maintainers of pregnancy).
From the fifth to the seventh months, plant preparations which give strength to the uterine muscles and nourishment to the embryo, are advised. Ashwagandha and Guduchi are particularly good in this regard. They help to ensure optimal condition of the placenta and uterine tissues as well as of the umbilical cord. The diet should be one of rice, milk, butter and gee. Fruits which are orange or yellow in color are advocated such as mangoes, apples, carrots, amalaki etc. Leafy vegetables are also advised. During the seventh month, hairs form on the fetus and the abdominal skin begins to become stretched giving rise to itching and striations (kikkisas). This can be treated by taking sips of the infusion of jujube berries or butter medicated with manjistha, the application of the pulp of sandalwood and lotus or of a paste made of neem, turmeric and manjistha, or oil medicated with tulsi leaves or jasmine.
From the eighth month forward, there should be less fat, less salt and less water in the diet. Ayurveda recommends rice kanji cooked in milk with a little ghee. After the completion of the eighth month, herbs which are mild diuretics and urinary antiseptics, such as punarnava, gokshuru and sariva, are advised. Fennel seed powder in small quantities is also recommended for its mild carminative and anti-spasmodic actions.
As soon as the pregnant woman enters the ninth month, she is supposed to move to the Sootikagar (delivery area) which is specially prepared for delivery. The door should be facing to the north or east. After an asthapan basti (simple enema), she should undergo anuvasan basti (retention enema of oil boiled with sweet herbs) which may be repeated. A swab soaked in the same oil is used to anoint the vagina and supporting structures to make the pelvis soft and elastic and enhance the downward-moving functions of apana vayu and delivery of the fetus. The mother´s complexion becomes rosy, her strength returns as she prepares for the final days of pregnancy.
In the middle of the ninth month with a waxing moon in conjunction with an auspicious star, pacificatory oblations to fire, cow, and Brahmins (priests) are performed. Grasses and honey are offered to the cows; barley, fruits, and flowers to the Brahmins. The Brahmins then recite prayers and mantras as the woman enters the delivery area and awaits her delivery.
Sootikagar (Delivery area)
The Sootikagar should be such as to meet seasonal needs. The type of land, the timber used for the building, the architectural layout of the area (the bath room, toilet, kitchen, fire place, delivery room), the type of fire wood used, the water supply and so on are described in detail. (CS Ss 8/33) Materials such as linen, tampons, needles and instruments, essential drugs and furniture are also specified. The house should be fumigated to make it free from insects. Porous bags containing rakshoghna drugs (to kill or repel insects and invisible evils) should be suspended all around – at the entrance and in the corners of the room. These drugs include calamus, asafoetida, garlic, Guggulu, Kathaka and Sarshapa.
The nurse or birth attendant recommended by Ayurveda should have had children herself, should be experienced, friendly, alert, expert, affectionate by nature, and free from anxiety. The attending physician should be an expert.
Treatment Of Diseases During Pregnancy
Any disease occurring in a pregnant woman should be treated with drugs that are mild in action, compatible and safe to the fetus. Panchakarma (detoxifying procedures) should not be advocated, except basti (enema) in the eighth and ninth months of pregnancy.
Ayurved also describes nine diseases, which are caused because of the pregnant status of the woman. These diseases are peculiar to pregnancy and are called garbhopadravas. They are: nausea, anorexia, vomiting, dryness of mouth, fever, edema, anemia, diarrhea and retention of urine. Their specific treatments are also elaborately described.
As far as possible, medication should be avoided during the first three months of pregnancy. Only symptomatic treatment with very mild herbs and a suitable diet should be offered. The physician is advised to take into account the severity of the disease, the resistance power of the mother and the stage of the pregnancy, and choose the middle path so that the disease or the treatments do not result in complications for the mother or the foetus. For example, the use of Dashamularishta in vattic fever, hima (cold infusion) of Yastimadhu, lotus and Sariva in paittic fever and Guduchi kwath in kapha fever to bring down temperature. Similar special treatments are advised for other diseases. Several substances are absolutely contraindicated in pregnancy such as vacha (calamus root), kumari (aloe), or myrrh and substances like garlic and hing are to be used with extreme caution if at all.
Different types of obstructed labor and their management with maneuvers, especially internal rotation, are also described in this section. However, if the physician realizes that the disease is going to endanger the life of the mother and there is no other remedy, the pregnancy should be terminated without delay.
As we can see from this article, the wealth of ancient Ayurvedic wisdom included the holistic principles of safe and healthy motherhood. Its goals were the same as our modern obstetric physicians: proper formation of the embryo, fetal development without anomalies, a comfortable full-term pregnancy, a timely and non-traumatic delivery, and maintenance of the health of the mother. Given the achievements of 21st century technological and medical sciences and a more detailed and sophisticated understanding of the physiological processes, modern medicine has made great strides in promoting healthy pregnancies. Today we can now recognize and treat many pathological conditions in the fetus or the mother. We also recognize the importance of regular antenatal check ups to detect any changes as early as possible and take appropriate medical interventions. Yet, although it lacks the technological sophistication of modern obstetrics, Ayurvedic wisdom can certainly contribute to this field in important and meaningful ways.
