Ayurvedic Treatment after Abortion

ayurveda-treatment-after-abortion

Abortion is the ending of the pregnancy, where foetus cannot survive in the external environment. The abortion occurred spontaneously is miscarriage and an intentional abortion is induced abortion. There are several laws in modern countries to regulate abortion and its social and ethical dialogues has started from time immemorial.

Induced abortion is performed either by medicines or surgical methods and its’ the safest medical procedure. However this procedure done by quacks reports death of more than 50000  in an year. A study says, 50 million abortions are done in last year and half were managed by untrained quacks causing serious threat to the health of millions of ladies.

The miscarriage is a medical condition and caused due to several aetiologies like  incompetence of cervix, debility of mother, hormonal imbalance, hereditary factors, physical exertion, stress etc.

Ayurveda have a unique concept of Tridosha ( Three somatic humours ) theory regarding the metabolism of the body. Every action of the body can be explained in terms of three humours- Vata ( Air), Pitt ( Fire) and Kaph. The health is the balance of these three factors and its imbalance causes the disease. The pregnancy is occurred in a unique combination of three factors and Vata holds the foetus, Kaph nourishes and Pitt converts. Any reason challenging this balance will lead to miscarriage and there is a clear Garbhini charya ( Daily routines of Pregnant ) to manage the balance and for a healthy progeny. There are some special food and decoctions for each month and this will enable smooth delivery.

Ayurveda compares the fertilization to the formation of fire from two pieces of wood by rubbing together. Atma or soul is entered in to the womb and by the association of Atma, the foetus becomes chetana ( active, conscious, living). The growth of the foetus month by month is explained in the Sarirasathana of Ashtanga Hrdayam.

The pregnant woman should avoid excess of sexual activities, carrying heavy loads, sleeping or awaking in improper timings, sitting on hard surfaces, grief, anger, fear, emotions, suppression of natural urges, controlling of desires, fasting, walking long distance, eating  spicy food, alcoholic drinks, meat, lying face upwards and panchkarma therapies. A pregnant women who involve in above said activities or due to other diseases, develops bleeding or stomach pain. After the embryo is get expelled, the women should be given drinks to pacify pain. Strong wine is recommended and it clears the uterine cavity and suppresses the pain. After that, soup of special rice processed with laghu panchmoola- Solanum indicum        ,Solanum xanthocarpum,Desmodium gangeticum,Uraria picta and Tribulus terrestris without any fat or salt is given. The herbs selected are easily digestible and promotes digestion.

After initial management, the women should be given Dipyakadi churna with ghee for three days. The decoction made of Katuka ( Picrorhiza kurroa), Ativisha (Aconitum heterophyllum), Pata ( Cissampelos pareira), Sakha twak ( Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Hingu ( Ferula asafoetida) and Teja ( Marsdenia tenacissima) should be administered in the same period. For next seven days, the women should be given medicated ghee and arishta ( Fermented liquid medicine) as per the reason of the miscarriage, tampon soaked in the decoction of Shirisha ( Albizia lebbeck) or Kakkubha (  Terminalia arjuna) should be inserted to the vagina.

Kerala Style Ayurvedic  management after abortion/ miscarriage

Restless Leg Ayurveda Herbal Treatment

Restless legs is a condition difficult to explain, but it tempts one to move the legs and surely the difficulty is relieved only by the movement. According to Dr. Margaret Stearn  “ It is not pins-and-needles, but is more like a crawling, prickling and tingling irritation just under the skin”

Restless legs comes when you are to rest for a while like sitting in the same position in flight or cinemas or lying or sleeping. The calves of both legs are involved mostly, sometimes thighs and feet also involved. Rarely people with the same issue in their arms were also reported. As said, the only way to get rid of the irritation is by moving your legs or walk. When you try to keep still, the painful ache crosses the limits and forces to move.

Restless legs is well described in Ayurveda classics. In Ashtangahridaya nidana, the vitiated  Vayu located in bones is described as the cause of this disease.

Ashtisth: sakthisandhyasthi shoolam theevram balakshayam||

( Ashtanga hrdayam Nidana stana Chapter 15/)

The nomenclatures of this dreadful agony are Vatakhudatha, Sakthisadham, Padaharsham and Saksthigraham. The symptoms of Padaharsham is understood as the feet having tingling (pins and needles) sensation and loss of tactile sensation arising from the aggravation of Kapha and vayu.

Causes of Restless legs

The real reason for restless legs is not known, but the most appreciated hypothesis is the lack of dopamine in an area of the brain or spinal cord. The lack of neurotransmitter Dopamine is identified as the reason for Parkinson’s which has the similar symptoms, so the reason for the absence of Dopamine has gained credibility.

The observations from different studies make clear that the real reason of Restless legs cannot be easily traced.

  • Restless starts in some pregnant or pregnancy worsen
  • Smoking, caffeine, and alcohol make it worse.
  • Stress and strain trigger the condition.
  • Deficiency of iron in elderly also manifests the symptoms.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, renal disorders show similar feeling.
  • A pattern of heredity is found in more than 40 % patients.
  • Regular intake of medicines like Ca channel blockers, anti depressants, tranquilizers, antihistamines etc also marked as a cause.

Ayurvedic classics refer to the causes vitiation of Vata and Kapha as the reason for restless legs. The food which increases Vata and Kapha, premature initiation of urges like urine, faeces etc, keeping awake at nights and sleeping in the day time, fear, worry, excessive physical activities and Sexual intercourse increases Kapha and increased Kapha blocks the channels in the body and in turn increases Vata in the body. So the basic quality of movement of Vata is abandoned by this physiologic imbalance and the same happened in the lower extremities manifests as restless legs.

Hidradenitis suppurativa- Ayurveda Herbal Treatment

 

The common symptoms of Hidradenitis suppurativa are multiple abscesses in armpits and groin area due to infection and inflammation of apocrine sweat glands.

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a Kapha-Pitta disorder in Ayurveda. The vitiated digestive fire-agni (Pitta ) causes impaired metabolism and results in the vitiation of Kapha Dosha. The impaired fat molecules are deposited in the muscle mass and cause swollen painful lesions in axillae, groin, anal and breast regions. As per Ayurveda, the diseases are due to the incompetence of channels or block to the channels. In HS, the impaired fat molecules are deposited in the fatty locations of the body and block the channels of the body. When we look into the pathology of HS, the disease occurs due to the obstruction of hair follicles, infection to apocrine sweat glands and secondary infections which can be correlated to the channel block theory of Ayurveda.

As per the concepts of Allopathic medicine, bacteria and bodily oils in armpit and groin cause the infection. Another reason is the wrong way of shaving hair. But Ayurveda believes this is caused due to internal issues and that’s why some people are getting affected.

Bacteria are known to cause skin and soft tissue infections were uncovered in microbiological studies of the skin disease hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), with nearly 60% of cultures dominated by Staphylococcus lugdunensis, according to a study published online November 13 in Emerging Infectious Diseases. In people with impaired digestive fire, the immunity is weak and facilitate the growth of bacteria in the body. So the internal impaired metabolism is the real factor and others like bacteria are the triggering factors.

Is HS considered an autoimmune disease?

The cause of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is still unknown. Even though the abscesses can become infected, it is not caused by bacteria and is not contagious. It is thought to be caused by an abnormal response of the body’s own immune system. In other words, HS is an autoimmune disease.

This statement itself proves the clarity of Ayurvedic concept and as per the pathologic explanations and the treatment concepts of Ayurveda, I have lot many experiences in managing HS with Ayurveda.

HS is not contagious and again proving the concept of Ayurveda. Because a bacteria causing the infection and inflammation is not working in all. So some other internal factors and environment which suits the growth of triggering factor are the real reason for HS. So we have to address the same with a clear scientific view.

The management of HS.

Dermatologists offer the following tips to their patients who have HS:

Lose weight to lessen HS — or even clear your skin.

Quit smoking to reduce HS flare-ups.

Stop shaving where you have breakouts.

Wear loose-fitting clothes to reduce friction.

Keep your skin cool.

Ayurvedic management of HS

As said, we have to address the real reason for Kapha-Pitta vitiation. The common reasons can be traced by a detailed case taking and lifestyle, food habits, heredity, diabetes, obesity, other chemical medicines etc are commonly listed. The patients are asked to modify them and medicines are prescribed to repair the metabolism.

These are the common supplements prescribed to manage HS. In most of the cases, 90 days outpatient management is only needed.

Psora for Pompholyx

 

Here is a blog post on Psora’s effectiveness on the website pompholyx.co.uk which used to bring many visitors and buyers to Ayurveda for all. However, this website has fallen into disuse and we have restored that page for everyone’s use here.

Kind courtesy: Internet Archive at https://web.archive.org/web/20130721032817/http://www.pompholyx.co.uk/eastern_promise.html

Eastern Promise?

We get a lot of emails from sufferers of pompholyx. Some are asking for help, some advice and some are just offering encouragement and support for fellow sufferers.

We get a lot of emails from sufferers of pompholyx. Some are asking for help, some advice and some are just offering encouragement and support for fellow sufferers.

Recently we had and email from Rose. She was after a very specific oil that she has used to treat the symptoms of her pompholyx. To be honest, I had never heard of it, but a little research and one or two calls led me to a UK based site where you can buy the oil.

Here is Rose’s story.

Rose emailed us with some tips and with a question. “Hi. I have pompholyx which started about four months ago and is driving me mad with constant flare-ups. I have been sensible, using cotton gloves etc and avoiding hand creams. However, a friend brought a tiny tube of PSORA ointment back from India. This worked a dream! However, it was a tiny tube and I have run out. I can’t locate it on the internet (its an ayurvedic remedy) and was wondering if you have heard of it [Ed: no – as it happens we hadn’t heard of it]. If so, would you know where I could get some more?”

So our first task was to find Psora ointment. Which we did, here – www.ayurvedaforall.com.

We let Rose know. “Wow! I am amazed that you found this so quickly! I have gone onto the website and ordered some ointment. I shall be pleased to share with your readers the results of my continued usage”. So we look forward to hearing how Rose gets on in the future.

We wanted to find out more about Psora ointment, so we spoke with Dr Nair at Ayurveda For All.

Dr Nair explained what Psora ointment is and how it works. “Psora ointment is made from a herb called Psoralia Corylofolia (Bavchi Oil). According to Ayurvedic concept, Kapha – one among the three somatic humors – is vitiated in Eczema and other skin disorders like Psoriasis. Psoralia Corylofolia (Bavchi Oil) is very effective in reducing this vitiated Kapha. If you are using Psora oinment with Psora capsules internally, it will cleanse the body as well. Ayurveda has a very good track record in dealing the chronic skin disorders which require long term medication. I am happy to offer a free consultation to your users through our site”. Dr Nair can be contacted at www.ayurvedaforall.com.

To be honest, it’s a complicated looking system which is based on herbs and a certain amount of faith. We certainly can’t recommend it because we aren’t doctors and we don’t ever recommend a specific solution for pompholyx. But it seems to be working for Rose.

Update: we haven’t had any feedback on Psora yet, but we have heard from JB who tells us about another ‘Eastern’ treatment. Again, we can’t vouch for this so please take proper advice before considering any treatments (we’re trying to find out more) but it seems to work for JB.

JB wrote in to tell us his treatment. “I suffered my first bout of Pompholyx about 18 years ago (I am now in my later 40’s). It was an extreme attack and it lasted over 18 months. Numerous visits to skin specialists could do nothing to help. I finally went to a Chinese acupuncturist who used a “moxa roll” or some may call it a Moxi Roll. They light the end and hold it close to the affected area to draw out the itch. This is intense while you are doing it, but wow what wonderful relief. In the end I purchased some moxa rolls for myself and when I get the first signs of the blisters – if I use the moxa roll every day – it seems to stop it from going into a full-blown attack. Over the years I have had numerous flare ups but have managed mostly to keep it under control with this method. Hope this helps.”. It does JB, thanks.

You can buy Psora capsules and Ointment here.

Diabetes mellitus- Type II NIDDM- Ayurvedic View and management

Diabetes mellitus

Sweet things happening for you

Om tanupa agne si tanvam me pahi | Om ayurda agne syayurme dehi||

Om varchoda agne si varcho me dehi| Om agne yanme tanva unam tanma aprina||

 

Diabetes mellitus

Just to rewind, Dibaetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorder in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged   period. This high blood sugar           produces the symptoms of frequent urination, increased thirst and increased hunger.  Madhumeha, one among the twenty varieties described in Ayurveda can be correlated to Diabetes mellitus.

Serious long-term complications include heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, foot ulcers, arthritis, neuropathy and damage to the eyes.

Types of Diabetes

  • Type 1 IDDM- Insulin is not produced in the body (Sahaja)-  This type starts before the age of 30. Causes- Viral attack causing the destruction of beta     cells of Islets or genetic predisposition. 10 % of total    patients belong to Type 1
  • Type 11-NIDDM- 90 % of patients comes under this category
  • Gestational diabetes- insulin resistance.

 

Diabetes Ayurvedic view

According to the predominance of dosha and their relation with dushyas( body tissues), the Ayurveda has classified the disease into 20 distinct types. It can again be sub classified into (a) Vata pramehas 4 Numbers, (b) pitta pramehas 6 numbers and (c) Kapha pramehas 10 numbers . Amongst the 20 types of pramehas, the most important one is Madhumeha, which can be interpreted as Diabetes mellitus and is also considered as incurable condition.

Food, drinks and activities which increases fat, urine and kapha are the   general cause. Intake of Foods which are sweet, sour, salt, fatty, heavy to digest, fresh grains, beer, meat of animals of marshy land, sugar cane juice are listed as the main cause of Prameha ( Sanskrit name of Diabetes). Other reasons are less exercise and sleeping. Prameha is described in Atharvaveda (1500-1000 BC) Kauchika Soothra part as a major ailment.

Common symptom– increased turbid urine and so named Prameha.

Pathology of Disease as per Ayurveda

Kapha , one among three somatic humors is increased due to intake of above said food and activities increases and localise at naval area, vitiates water, sweat, pitta, fat, plasma and muscle tissues.

According to experts in Ayurveda “pittadharakala” described in Susruta Samhita can be corrleated as the “Islet tissue “of pancreas and “Pitta Thejus” produced from the pithadharakala as the hormones like insulin, glucagon and pancreatic digestive enzymes etc etc.

 

Diabetes Warning Symptoms from Ayurvedic classics.

  • Perspiration.
  • Looseness of body parts.
  • Desire to rest, cold.
  • Thickening of heart, eyes, tongue, ears etc.
  • Overgrowth of hair and nails.
  • Sweet taste in mouth.
  • Burning sensation in extremities.

This is very important to understand the warning symptoms as this is the pre diabetic stage and one can modify his diet and life style and can delay the onset of Diabetes. This is the pre- diabetic condition and understanding the symptoms wise fully will surely reduce the number of diabetic patients of young age. These should be incorporated in syllabus of students and health professionals as preventive method of Diabetes.

 

Diabetes Management – Conservative

  • Insulin and other diabetes medications are designed to lower   your blood sugar levels when diet and exercise alone aren’t    sufficient for managing diabetes. But the effectiveness of these medications depends on the timing and size of the dose. Medications you take for conditions other than diabetes also can affect your blood sugar levels.

Treatment concept of Ayurveda

Our true self is consciousness.

The cure of disease is self-knowledge

The great Indian principle of healing can be greatly applicable to Diabetes as it is a chronic disorder and self- knowledge is the master managing chronic life style disorders. When we go through the aetiology of Diabetes, various dietary, lifestyle and psychologic factors disturbing the fat and carbohydrate metabolism has been listed. As a clinician, when having a close eye to the diabetes, it’s very clear that the disturbance of fat metabolism is the basic cause of Diabetes and all other come after it as the disease progresses.

Do’s and Don’ts of DM

Do:

Plan an intermittent fasting diet

Increase fibre intake.

Don’t:

Eat saturated or trans fats

Consume starches or sugars

Over indulge in alcohol

Diet

Drinks:

Sweet drinks and carbohydrate drinks should be avoided. Cakes, pastries, cream, dried and canned fruits, sweet pickles, and meats should be avoided.

 Soups:

Thin vegetable soups supply fewer calories.   So obese persons are encouraged to take large quantities which would fill up their stomach and give them a sense of     satiety.

Green vegetables:

Diabetics should consume large amount of green vegetables, which are poor source of calories. Salads with lime or natural vinegar are useful.

Fruits:

Dried fruits and nuts should be avoided. Orange, bananas, mangoes and apples can be taken. All fresh fruits in minimum quantity is good to sensitize Islets to produce more insulin.

Desserts:

Chilled Sweets and ice cream or custard are not allowed.

Cooking media:

Ghee, oils, butter all are rich in calories so an obese    diabetic is allowed only          1 teaspoonful per meal.

Tea and coffee:

Tea and coffee are permitted but milk and sugar should be regulated or avoided as per the blood profile.

A diet free from Fatty foods is ideal for diabetes patients and they should always keep away from fat increasing sedentary lifestyle and should be encouraged for sweating. All party habits including alcohol, tobacco to drugs damages the general health of Diabetes and may become fatal. All these precautions will surely help to avoid the visit to swanky hospitals or consuming costly synthetic medicines.
