Ayurvedic Remedies for Obesity

Ayurvedic Remedies for Obesity

In Ayurveda underweight and overweight are signs that the vata, pitta, and kapha systems are out of balance. This can happen irrespective of how much or how little food you eat. Weight control problems happen when your food intake is not balanced by a proper digestion or metabolism.

Overweight or obesity is mostly found in people with predominantly kapha-type constitutions. This dosha is composed of water and earth. When it is imbalanced, the heavy characteristics of these elements become exaggerated.

However, obesity can be found in people with the other two doshas also. For example, people with pitta dosha are generally of medium build. But they can suffer from poor digestion if their digestive fire is too low because they have burned themselves out. As a result, food isn’t processed properly, and that, in turn, can result in weight gain or obesity.
For people with vata dosha the problem generally is that of underweight rather than overweight. They cannot properly absorb nutrients. However, they can become overweight when imbalanced if they attempt to eat sweet, oily foods in an attempt to calm their vata imbalance.

The Ayurvedic approach to achieving your ideal weight is based on taking a realistic look at your body type and what it can be, and then nourishing it back to natural health. It is about getting to know your body and becoming in tune with its rhythms.

In Ayurveda, you will permanently reset your mind-body’s ability to regulate itself by calming the nervous system, enhancing your digestive fires, and regulating the storage of energy and fat.

In Ayurveda, there is no universal approach to solving problems. Strategies are designed for each person after a careful analysis of the condition of the person – mind, body, and the soul. The specific approach depends on the dosha of the person.

In general, the doctor will advise you to:

1. Follow a Daily Lifestyle Regimen and diet for your constitution.

2. Increase your intake of foods that enhance your digestive fire.

The foods that are especially beneficial are:
Ginger
Papaya
Mango
Pineapple
Bitter melons
Dark, bitter greens

Other Strategies to increase your digestion include:

Sip hot water throughout the day.
Fast one day a week on liquids. You may have fruit or vegetable juices, warm skim milk, light soups, teas, etc.
Drink ginger tea 2-3 times per day.
Chew a thin slice of fresh ginger root a few minutes before meals. Or grate a little ginger, mix with some lemon juice and salt, and eat a pinch or two.
Use herbs and spices that are primarily pungent (spicy), bitter, or astringent. Common useful spices include: cumin, ginger, mustard seed, cayenne, and black pepper. Use them generously in your cooking.
Use Ayurvedic herbs such as gotu kola, amalaki, and shilajit in powder or capsule form.
Exercise regularly according to your body type.
3. Reconnect with your inner self and your present life.

How do I feel?
What weight do I want to be?
Am I hungry for something other than food?
Am I using food to fill a void that is created by being unsatisfied emotionally or psychologically?
Am I nourishing all my senses?

4. Eliminate ama

All the above measures for stimulating the digestive process are also effective for reducing ama, which by definition is a byproduct of inefficient or incomplete digestion. Ama tends to clog up the circulatory, lymph, and other channels of the body. People who are overweight almost always have an excess of ama in their bodies. Getting rid of the body of its ama is a primary strategy of Ayurvedic treatment.

According to Deepak Chopra, M.D., "It is highly impractical to treat any imbalance of the physiology when ama is present-and it is extremely difficult, perhaps impossible, to lose weight. This is why so many people who have limited their diets to the point of virtual starvation still have failed to accomplish their goals. Therefore it’s essential to take practical steps to eliminate ama in order to lose weight and keep it off permanently. Ama is, quite simply, a key in the pathogenesis of obesity. After all, one of the principal qualities of ama is heaviness."

The following herbs and compounds are effective in reducing ama:

Turmeric
Barberry
Ayurvedic herbal compounds trikatu (a combination of equal parts of black pepper, ginger, and pippali or Indian long pepper)
Tripbala (a combination of amalaki, bibbitaki, and haritaki)
Guggulu – Take this in combination with triphala.

5. Relaxation and oxygen

Relaxation and oxygen are two nutrients essential to achieving balance in your life. Practice yoga, meditation, and pranayama (breathing exercises) daily. (For more recommendations on relaxation, please visit holisticonline.com Stress Management Infocenter.

6. Exercise

Exercise is very important. Use a form that is most beneficial for your dosha.

For example,

Vata types need movement with a gentle pace, such as tai chi, many forms of yoga, and perhaps a light amount of dance aerobics and resistance training (weights).
Pitta types do best with challenging and vigorous hikes surrounded by green nature and blue skies, and competitive sports.
Kapha types require very vigorous activity, such as running, dancing, hiking, swimming, and triathlons.
Ayurvedic Herbal Remedy

To stimulate weight loss, Ayurvedic physicians generally prescribe a light diet, fasting, spicy herbs to stimulate digestion, mild laxatives, and tonic herbs such as guggul.

Take a teaspoon of guggul two or three times a day mixed with ginger and honey.

Combine 1 part each chitrak (Plumbago zeylonica), kukti, and trikatu. Take 1/2 teaspoon of this herbal blend with a mouthful of warm water. Swish around your mouth, and swallow.

Take this herbal remedy once a day if you are less than 20 pounds overweight. Take twice a day if you are more than 20 pounds overweight.

This herbal remedy is recommended for everyone irrespective of their dosha. Supplement it with dosha-specific remedies given below.

Vata Therapies for Overweight

o Taste: Choose bitter, pungent, and astringent tastes, such as those found in the spring churna. Add sweet taste in the form of rice and dates. Add a little oil to your foods.

o Smell. Essential oils with sweet, warm aromas help calm vata and your nervous system, so choose jasmine, clove, rose, cinnamon, and orange scents for your aromatherapy.

o Sight. The color yellow-green is recommended.

o Hearing. Listen to the late-afternoon raga or music between 4 PM and 7 P.M.

o Touch: Get daily full-body oil massage (abhyanga).
Combine 3 drops of rose essential oil with 2 teaspoons sesame or almond oil. Apply this to your wrist and to the back of the head where the skull meets the neck bones (occipital ridge).

Pitta Therapies for Overweight

o Taste: Emphasize bitter, pungent, and astringent tastes, such as those found in the spring churna. Eat plenty of bitter foods such as bitter melon, dark green leafy vegetables, bitter lettuces such as arugula, and tart apples.

o Smell. Use essential oils with sweet, cool aromas such as honeysuckle, mint, and jasmine scents for your aromatherapy.

o Sight. The color indigo blue is recommended.

o Hearing. Listen to the midmorning raga or music between the hours of 10 A.M. and 1 PM.

o Touch: Give yourself a 10- minute garshana (dry) massage every morning using a silk glove.

Kapha Therapies for Overweight

o Taste: Bitter, pungent, and astringent tastes are recommended. Ginger and spring-chur
na are especially recommended.

Recommended Drink: Mix the juice of 5 large slices of fresh pineapple with the juice of 2 slices of hot peppers, pimentos, or paprika.

Herbal remedy: Mix 1 part each turmeric, triphala, and trikatu with 2 parts honey; take 1/8 teaspoon once a day with 1/2 cup of warm water.

oSmell. Warm, spicy aromas help stimulate kapha to burn fat. Recommended essential oils: eucalyptus, pine, musk, and sage.

o Sight.- The color red is recommended to stimulate sluggish kapha.

o Hearing. Listen to the sunset raga or music between the hours of 7PM and 10 P.M.

o Touch: Get a daily dry massage (garshana) using a silk glove. It is very stimulating. Make an herbal paste of 1 part millet and 1/2 part each dashmoola and bala (Sida cordifolia) mixed with a little spring water. Rub this vigorously onto your skin wherever you have fatty deposits, then rinse.

Herbs for Reducing Obesity

Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)

Aloe vera juice improves digestion and cleanses the digestive tract.

Astragalus (Astragalus gummifer)

Astragalus increases energy and improves nutrient absorption.
Caution: Do not use this herb in the presence of a fever.

Bee pollen

Bee pollen stimulates the metabolism and helps to curb appetite. Take up to 1 teaspoon daily.

Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus)

Bladderwrack contain iodine, which helps to enhance thyroid function. Dosage: Take 150 milligrams at breakfast and another 150 milligrams lunch for two months.
Caution: Check with your doctor before taking this herb if you have a thyroid disorder, high blood pressure, or heart problems. If you are allergic to shellfish and/ or sensitive to iodine, do not take this herb. Also do not take kelp and bladderwrack at the same time.

Brewer’s yeast

Brewer’s yeast will help to reduce various cravings for food and drink.

Chickweed (Stellaria media)

This herb a great folk reputation for shedding weight.

You can eat it raw in salads. Alternately, you can steam it and eat it like a vegetable. For a great weight loss salad, mix chickweed, dandelion, evening primrose, stinging nettle (cooked and cooled), plantain and purslane. Add this to your regular salad.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil, extracted from coconuts, is a rich source for medium chain triglycerides. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTS) are special types of saturated fats separated out from coconut oil that range in length from six to twelve carbon chains. Unlike regular fats, MCTs do not appear to cause weight gain; they actually promote weight loss.

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)

Dandelion may flush out the kidneys, boost metabolism, and off- set a craving for sweets. Eat the leaves raw in a salad or make a tea by boiling 2 to 3 tsp of the root in a cup of water for I 0 to 15 minutes. Drink three times a day.

Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis).

This herb is a good source for tryptophan which is believed to help in weight loss. Take a half-teaspoon of evening primrose oil three times a day.

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)

Fennel removes mucus and fat from the intestinal tract, and is a natural appetite suppressant.

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum)

Fenugreek is useful for dissolving fat within the liver.

Green Tea (Camellia sinensis)

Green tea enhances the ability of the body to burn fat. Choose a standardized extract containing 50 percent catechin and 90 percent total polyphenols and take 300 milligrams thirty minutes before breakfast and another thirty minutes before lunch. Do not take more.

Guggul (Commiphora mukul)

This is a popular herb used in Ayurveda. Guggul is frequently recommended by Ayurveda practitioners for weight control in addition to use in lowering cholesterol. In clinical trials, intake of guggul derivatives regularly for three months results in four times the weight loss compared to placebo.
Dosage: 2.25 grams twice a day

Kelp (Fucus spp.)

Kelp is a type of seaweed that’s rich in antioxidant vitamins and iodine. It is believed to stimulate a hormone produced by the thyroid gland that’s responsible for boosting metabolism, so you’ll burn more calories by the hour. You can also get other kinds of seaweed in your diet by adding them to soups and salads. Kelp is very useful for thyroid-related obesity.

Dosage: Take 300-1,500 mg daily as directed on the label.

Caution: Check with your doctor before taking kelp if you have a thyroid disorder, high blood pressure, or heart problems.

Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)

Licorice root strengthens the adrenal glands, thus helping to sustain a regulated blood-sugar level and reduce cravings for sweets. Licorice tastes sweet.
Dose: Take a cup of licorice daily, one week out of every month for up to three months. Licorice can also be added to other teas to sweeten them.

Caution: Do not take licorice by itself on a daily basis for more than five days at a time, as it can elevate blood pressure. Do not take it at all if you have high blood pressure. This herb should be used with caution. Check the herbal database for other important safety information.

Malabar tamarind (Gareinia cantbogia)

The Malabar tamarind is a yellowish fruit that is about the size of an orange, with a thin skin and deep furrows similar to an acorn squash. It is native to southern India, where it is dried and used extensively in curries (especially fish). It looks black when dried.

The dried fruit of Malabar Tamarind contains about thirty percent hydroxycitric acid. It is a powerful lipogenic inhibitor. (Lipogenic inhibitor is a substance which helps prevent the production of fat.)

In animal studies, hydroxycitrate has been shown to be a powerful inhibitor of fat formation. One study showed that hydroxycitrate produced a "significant reduction in food intake, and body weight gain" in rats. The results in humans are not yet proven.

In addition to inhibiting the production of fat, hydroxycitrate may also suppress appetite.
Note that hydroxycitrate only inhibits the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. It will have no effect if a high-fat diet is consumed.

Recommended Dosage: 500 mg three times per day. Take it along with a supplement of Chromium for best results.

Pineapple (Ananas comosus)

Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which helps digest both proteins and fats.

Herbalist Dr. Duke reported that one person in Costa Rica lost 100 pounds by eating one whole fresh pineapple per day. Pineapple is loaded with nutrition, and is also great for your digestion.

Plantain or psyllium (Plantago)

Psyllium is the seed of Plantain. Metamucil is a commercial product that contain psyllium.

Herbalists say that the weight-loss effect of plantain and psyllium is related to the spongy fiber (mucilage) in the seeds and to specific chemicals (polyphenols) in the leaves.
In one Italian study, scientists gave women who were seriously obese (over 60 percent over their recommended weight) three grams of plantain in water 30 minutes before meals. The plantain group lost more weight than a similar group of women who simply cut back on their diet.

Dose: Take a teaspoonful of psyllium mixed well with a glass of juice or water. Take it before each meal.

Caution: If you are allergic to this herb, stop its use immediately.

Red pepper (Capsicum), Hit Mustard, and other hot spices

Scientists have found that people who took hot spicy foods (adding a teaspoon of red-pepper sauce and a teaspoon of mustard to meal) raised their metabolic rates by as much as 25 percent. The hot spice also stimulates thirst, so you
drink more liquids that also helps in gaining less weight.

Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus Senticosus)

Siberian ginseng helps to stabilize blood sugar and reduce cravings for sweets. It is also a natural energizer.
Dose: Choose a standardized extract containing 0.5 percent eleutheroside E and take 100 milligrams daily, two weeks out of every month, for up to three months.
Caution: Do not use if you have high blood pressure.

Walnut (Juglans)

A study of more than 25,000 Seventh-Day Adventists showed that those who ate the most nuts were the least obese. Walnuts are rich in serotonin. Serotonin is shown to make us feel full; so we eat less as a result.

The following herbs are helpful for those with signs of coldness:

Cumin
Ginger
Cloves
Spearmint
Fennel
Cayenne

The following herbs are helpful for those with signs of heat:

Peppermint
Chamomile
Kohlrabi
Turnip
White pepper

Diet Therapy for Obesity

Nutritional and diet therapy are the first line of defense against weight gain used by many people.

In general, the treatment involves eating differently, not eating less. There are many dieting approaches that use different ways to manipulate our intake of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Here are some sensible guidelines.

Eat the proper foods. Rotate your foods. Eat a variety of foods. Eat meals that consist of a balance of proteins, complex carbohydrates, and some fat. Proteins can increase your metabolic rate by as much as 30 percent, and help to balance the release of insulin by prompting secretion of the pancreatic hormone glucagon. Protein-induced glucagon mobilizes fats from the tissues in which it is stored, thus aiding in weight loss. By eating balanced meals you get more steady blood sugar levels and the ability to burn stored body fat for long-term weight loss.

Food Guidelines

Incorporate high-fiber and unrefined complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains because the body is less successful digesting these and feels full sooner than with refined carbohydrates, such as sugar and white flour.
Eat raw or lightly cooked vegetables
Consume protein with low amounts of saturated fat, including dry peas and beans.
Eat your main meal in the middle of the day, when you will burn off more of the calories you take in. A large meal eaten at night, when you are more sedentary, is less easily digested and absorbed.
Replace daily consumption of soft drinks, fruit juices, and milk with six to eight glasses of water.
Avoid diets that count calories. They increase your risk for developing eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia.
Other Recommendations

Limit sugar intake.
Drink plenty of purified water each day.
Altering eating habits
Exercising daily.
Using nutritional supplements such as zinc, B vitamins, chromium etc.

A typical first step in devising a treatment program for obesity is start a food diary where you record the following information:

What foods do you eat each day, including all snacks and portion sizes?
When and where do you eat?
Are you alone or with other people when you eat?
What is your mood or stress level while eating?
When are your bowel movements?

This information can help a nutritional therapist assess the best treatment for you.

Recommended Foods To Take

Complex carbohydrates with protein

Lentils

Plain baked potatoes (no toppings, except for vegetables)
Sesame seeds

Cold-pressed flax oil provides hormonal balance for those who have eaten excess animal products. Two teaspoons of flax oil can be poured over food each day; or eat three tablespoons of soaked or crushed flaxseed. Eat soaked seeds alone to make digestion easier.

Spirulina

White fish

Goat’s milk normalizes the weight of the body. Take it raw.

Cream

White flour products
Salt
Processed foods
Fast food restaurants and all junk foods
Sweets
Soda
Pastries
Pies
Cakes
Doughnuts
Candy
All products containing refined sugar
(including white sugar, brown sugar, and corn sweetener)

Recommended Snacks to Take Occasionally

Celery and carrot sticks.
Low-fat cottage cheese topped with fresh applesauce and walnuts.
Unsweetened gelatin made with fruit juice in place of sugar and water.
Natural sugar-free whole-grain muffins.
Freshly made unsalted popcorn.
Rice cakes topped with nut butter (but not peanut butter).
Watermelon, fresh fruit, or frozen fruit popsicles.
Unsweetened low-fat yogurt topped with granola or nuts and fresh fruit.

Notes:

Poultry and fish should be broiled or baked, never fried.

Eat fresh fruits and an abundance of raw vegetables. Have one meal each day that consists entirely of vegetables and fruits.

Eat foods raw, if possible. If foods are heated, they should be baked, broiled, steamed, or boiled. Never consume fried or greasy foods.

Drink six to eight glasses of liquids daily. Herbal teas and steam-distilled water with trace minerals added are good. They are nonfattening fillers that also help to dilute toxins and flush them out of the body. Herbal teas mixed with unsweetened fruit juice are very satisfying low-calorie drinks and are also very filling. Use these between meals and when a desire for sweets hits you. Drink sparkling water mixed with fruit juice in place of sodas.

Pay particular attention to the fat in your diet. Some fat is necessary, but it must be the right kind.

Eliminate saturated fats from the diet completely.

Sugar triggers the release of insulin, which then activates enzymes that promote the passage of fat from the bloodstream into the fat cells.

Follow a fasting program once monthly.

For a quick energy boost, try taking a spirulina tablet. Use wheatgrass to calm the appetite. This is a very nutritious fuel from whole food that assists metabolic functions. Kelp is also beneficial.

Do not consume alcohol in any form, including beer and wine. Alcohol not only adds calories, but it inhibits the burning of fat from fat deposits. It can also interfere with your judgment, so you may find yourself eating things you o
rdinarily would not.

Use powdered barley malt sweetener instead of sugar. This is highly concentrated but not dangerous. It contains only 3 calories per gram (approximately 2 teaspoons). This sweetener is also beneficial for people with diabetes or hypoglycemia.

Use extra fiber daily. Guar gum and psyllium husks are good sources. Take fiber with a large glass of liquid one-half hour before meals.

Note: Always take supplemental fiber separately from other supplements and medications.

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

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.

I am male of 35 years old and working in Delhi. My weight is around 69 kgs. Mine is basically a `sitting’ job.My problem is acute pain in below my knees (generally backside), specially when I had to walk or sit for a long time, or after a long journey.This is a problem which I am carrying for more than a decade now and I have never consulted any doctor or not undergone any medical treatment for this ailment. Generally I apply some pain killer or ointment when I feel uneasiness. Rather, if I keep some weight on my legs, i feel some sort of comfort. I seek your kind advise to get some relief from this ailment.Thanks S MathewDelhi

For about two years, she is suffering from pain and occasional swelling on her joints, especially at her knees and shoulder joints. This problem will aggravate during the periods. The magnitude of the swelling varies from time to time. We have consulted allopathic doctors and tests like Uric Acid, Thyroid, ECG, Kidny Function Test etc. were done. The results of the tests were normal and no abnormality was reported. Doctor advised for taking calcium and multivitamin tablets etc. for one month. After taking the tablets, the result was encouraging, but due to the increased appetite, weight started increasing and stopped the tablets. Doctors opined that it is due to the age factor and symptoms of Rheumatic Artherities. Kindly give your valued opinion and possible prescription through this on line network.Thank you sir.

Question posted by: Pavithran
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.

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.

PLANETERY HERBS OF AYURVEDA

PLANETERY HERBS OF AYURVEDA

A Kavacha or “talisman” is not only the gem, which represents the earth element. A real Astral Talisman is composed of all 5 elements, i.e., gem for earth, herb for water, metal for fire, symbol for air, and cosmic number for space. This process of “Pancha-amrita” astral talisman making is the most bona fide. Even the Western alchemists are known to use herbs as the “water” ingredient in an Astral Talismans. These herbs have been ritually turned into “bhasma” or sanctified ashes. Therefore, one may understand that the gem alone is not the complete kavacha or talisman, the gems are only for one of five elements, viz., earth

The philosopher Agrippa has nicely described in Three Books of Occult Philosophy the basic preparation of astrological rings as follows:

“When any star ascends fortunately we must take a stone and HERB that is under that star, and make a ring of the metal that is suitable to this star, and in it fasten the stone, putting the herb or root under it, not omitting the inscriptions of images, names and characters, as also the proper suffumigations.”

In 1974 Dr. Mana Vajracharya, Chairman of the Nepal Ayurveda Association, informed us which are the ancient bona fide “bhasma” herbs for each planet. He prepared nine different herbal bhasmas which should be sealed into tubes that are part of a jewelry talisman. It took one week for the Dr. to prepare the 9 herbs and transform them into ashes or Bhasma. At that time he also provided rare samples of the actual herbs. We witnessed part of the process which involves indirect fire to heat the herb until is stops smoking and has transformed entirely into ash. Planetary mantras are recited during this heating process.

All nine herbs are available in Nepal (Himalaya) and some are quite rare even in India where they sometimes substitute because of lack of the actual herb). —Respectfully submitted by the Richard Shaw Brown.

Nagarjuna’s Contribution to Rasashastra:
Nagarjuna was an Indian philosopher and Saint and the founder of the Madhyamaka school of Mahayana Buddhism. He was born in Amravati (presently the Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh) around 113 AD. Though Nagarjuna also traveled widely, he spent most of his life in a hilly area near Amravati. There he conducted extensive studies on the health applications of Mercury & other heavy metals for a significant part of his life. These studies, brought about, at that time, the visible re-emergence of this branch of Ayurveda, viz. Rasa Shastra, or Alchemy. Ayurveda itself, in later periods, began to incorporate Mercury as well as other “toxic” metals as important components of pharmaceutical formulations.
Essentially Rasashastra deals with the purification, transmutation and potentiation of various metals, gems and herb essences. It is a highly refined, sophisticated and sacred art and extensive training is required to perform it properly.
Rasashastra is derived from the Sanskrit words Rasa (meaning “essence”, “taste” or “inherent substance or quality”) and Shastra (meaning “knowledge”, “science” or “sacred prescription”). Thus Rasashastra is the sacred science of using the fundamental essences of various substances for healing and spiritual growth.
In Rasashastra all ingredients are first purified and reduced to their absolute essence in a process called Shodhana, where gems or metals are refined, through a process of alternate heating, cooling, oxidizing and crushing, to a fine pure ash. These individual purified ashes are called Bhasmas. Individual Bhasmas are then triturated in a process called Bhavana, and further pulverised and blended using alternate wetting and drying to form a fine homogenous paste.
During both stages, specialized Ayurvedic herbs and herbal extracts and juices are used as catalysts to direct the alchemical transformation of the original ingredients and to potentize the revealed essence. Shastric rules dictate that each of these processes be repeated 100 times for the highest quality preparation, i.e. Shodhana is applied 100 times before the iterations of Bhavana even begin. Each iteration is identical and further potentizes the Bhasmas and the final complexed product. After the process of Bhavana is complete, the resultant dried paste has an unlimited shelf life and retains its potency in perpetuity.
Rasashastric Gold bhasma (purified gold “oxide” ash) is the original version of what today is being referred to as monatomic gold / ormus gold / white powder gold etc. It is made in a sacred process with conscious intent and takes place in multiple cycles of firing, cooling, pulverizing and blending with various energizing herb juices. It requires 100 iterations of this cycle to qualify as an authentic Rasayana. This art is still practiced in India and authentic Gold bhasma is still available today.
Another profound healing panacea in Rasashastra is called Navaratna (Nine Gem). This compound is indirectly related to Vedic Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) and Ayurvedic medical astrology as it engenders benefits to the body internally in a similar way that Joytish gems and metals offer benefits on the surface of the body. The difference is that with Navaratna the gems and metals are triturated with herbs after being specially purified and, as they are orally ingested, they are designed to reach every cell in the body for complete cellular and organ rejuvenation.
Formula for Navaratna (present day composition):
120mg micro-tablet (produced on a single-tablet hand press rather than hand rolled as in the old days)
Active Formulation consisting of bhasmas of:
Ruby
Blue Sapphire
Emerald
Yellow Topaz
Chrysoberyl
Red-Brown Garnet
Cultured White Fresh-Water Pearl
Lapis Lazuli
Himalayan White Coral
In a potentizing carrier base of:
Organic Red Rose Petal
24 Karat Gold
.999 Silver
Navaratna Usage:
1-2 tablets per week. Take on an empty stomach, and chew or dissolve on the tongue before swallowing.
Quality Standards:
All gems are natural earth -mined and not synthetically produced.
Metals are 100% pure and not alloys.
Pearls are cultured under controlled pollution-free conditions.
Coral was formed millions of years ago in unpolluted pre-Himalayan oceans.
Rose petals and all Ayurvedic herbs used as catalysts during the processes of Shodhana (purification) and Bhavana (trituration) are completely organic.
The Navaratna tablets are produced at a leading Ayurvedic laboratory in India by highly trained Rasashastric alchemists exactly according to traditional Shastric rules.
Alchemical transformation of the ingredients is repeated a total of 200 times (100 times each for Shodhana and Bhavana).
Navaratna and the Sacred Science of Rasashastra:
Rasashastra is a branch of Ayurvedic medicine that deals primarily with the alchemical transformation of metals, gems and minerals, using specialized herbs and techniques, for the purification, healing and rejuvenation of the physical and subtle bodies. Navaratna is one of the most esoteric products in the Rasashastric Codex and works deeply in the various sheaths of the body-mind.
When making Navaratna, the nine gem-Bhasmas are dissolved and blended into a base of purified and oxidized gold, silver and rose petals which further potentizes the gem essences and functions as a vehicle to transport them into the body as nutrients.
Once absorbed, Navaratna works to release karmas and sanskaras that are held physiologically and psychically in the body-mind as “knots” or toxic “pockets” in the tissues and nervous system. This is similar to the use of gems on the surface of the body in Vedic Jyotish and Ayurvedic Medical Astrology, but because Navaratna is ingested and delivered to every cell in the body it is a more powerful approach. Rasashastra preparations also purify and rejuvenate on the cellular level, and may target certain organs or tissue systems (dhatus) to complete their work.
According to documented history, the science of Rasashastra made its first visible appearance in India during the time the Buddha (Gautama Shakyamuni) lived and was re-enlivened by Nagarjuna, although according to practicing alchemists in the Rasashastra tradition, it’s roots are actually far older. Rasashastra practiced today is the same authentic Vedic Alchemy that has been practiced and handed down through generations for thousands of years, and Navaratna is one of the pinnacle elixirs within that tradition.
Because of the profundity of these times and the urgent necessity of our evolution as a human culture, we are honored to make available the following authentic Rasashastric Alchemical products

Physicochemical characterization of Swarna makshika bhasma

Swarna makshika [SM], a mineral having various therapeutic uses, has been used since long in Ayurveda . The present study was conducted to generate a fingerprint for raw and processed SM using techniques which can be used by pharmacies. Powdered SM was heated in an iron pan by adding lemon juice for 3 days, till liberation of sulfur fumes stopped. Bhasma of this shuddha SM was obtained by triturating it with shuddha gandhaka and lemon juice. It was then subjected to heat in 09* putas, and for firing in each puta, 4 kg cow dung cakes were used. To assure the quality of bhasma, rasa shastra quality control tests like nischandratva, varitara, amla pariksha, etc., were used. After the bhasma complied with these tests, the bhasma was analyzed using X-ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis of raw SM and SM bhasma revealed that raw SM contains CuFeS 2 , and SM bhasma contains Fe 2 O 3 , FeS 2 , CuS and SiO 2 . Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) studies showed that the grains in SM bhasma were uniformly arranged in agglomerates of size 1-2 microns as compared to the raw SM which showed a scattered arrangement of grains of size 6-8 microns. It may be concluded that raw SM is a complex compound which gets converted into a mixture of simple compounds having very small particle size after the particular process of marana. This is the first report of fingerprinting of SM bhasma prepared using this particular method.

Introduction

Swarna makshika [SM] bhasma has been used for pandu (anemia), anidra (insomnia), apasmara (convulsions), mandagni (poor digestion), kustha (skin diseases),[1] etc., as well as a potent rasayana[2] drug. Generally, SM bhasma is prepared in two steps: shodhana, by different techniques like fomentation, heating and quenching and roasting, etc.; and marana, by puta system of heating in different types of putas,[3] like varahaputa, kukkutaputa, gajaputa, etc.; and kupipakwa procedures, [4] etc. During marana, bhavana with lemon juice, kulottha decoction, eranda taila, snuhi ksheera,[5] etc., are given with addition of shuddha gandhaka and shuddha hingula,[6] etc., as associated materials.

SM bhasma is used as a single constituent formulation or in multi-ingredient formulation. However, there is variation in collection of raw materials and the pharmaceutical procedure followed, which generates the same bhasma with different characters. As a result, reproducibility is often not achieved. In many cases, wrong manufacturing and marketing practice leads to the production of inferior quality products, which reduces efficacy or produces safety concerns. In order to minimize variability and to check adulteration, standardization of a bhasma is a must.

Ayurvedic texts have described methods for quality control of finished products through different parameters like nischasndratva, varitara, nirutha, apunarbhava, etc., to achieve a specific acceptable standard bhasma. This study was performed to characterize the bhasma using sensitive tools and techniques. These fingerprints generated for the raw material and bhasma could be used as standards to for ensuring quality and reproducibility of standards of the medicines.
