SKIN ALLERGY Irritated skin can be caused by a variety of factors. These include immune system disorders, medications and infections. When an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system response, then it is an allergic skin condition. Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema) Eczema is the most common skin condition, especially in children. It affects one in five infants but only around one in fifty adults. It is now thought to be due to “leakiness” of the skin barrier, which causes it to dry out and become prone to irritation and inflammation by many environmental factors. Also, some people with eczema have a food sensitivity which can make eczema symptoms worse. In about half of patients with severe atopic dermatitis, the disease is due to inheritance of a faulty gene in their skin called filaggrin. Unlike with urticaria (hives), the itch of eczema is not only caused by histamine so anti-histamines may not control the symptoms. Eczema is often linked with asthma,  allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or food allergy. This order of progression is called the atopic march. Allergic Contact Dermatitis Allergic contact dermatitis occurs when your skin comes in direct contact with an allergen. For instance, if you have a nickel allergy and your skin comes in contact with jewelry made with even a very small amount of nickel, you may develop red, bumpy, scaly, itchy or swollen skin at the point of contact. Coming in contact with poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac can also cause allergic contact dermatitis. The red, itchy rash is caused by an oily coating covering these plants. The allergic reaction can come from actually touching them, or by touching clothing, pets or even gardening tools that have come in contact with the oil. Urticaria (Hives) Hives are an inflammation of the skin triggered when the immune system releases histamine. This causes small blood vessels to leak, which leads to swelling in the skin. Swelling in deep layers of the skin is called angioedema. There are two kinds of urticaria, acute and chronic. Acute urticaria occurs at times after eating a particular food or coming in contact with a particular trigger. It can also be triggered by non-allergic causes such as heat or exercise, as well as medications, foods, insect bites or infections. Chronic urticaria is rarely caused by specific triggers and so allergy tests are usually not helpful. Chronic urticaria can last for many months or years. Although they are often uncomfortable and sometimes painful, hives are not contagious. Angioedema Angioedema is swelling in the deep layers of the skin. It is often seen together with urticaria (hives). Angioedema many times occurs in soft tissues such as the eyelids, mouth or genitals. Angioedema is called "acute" if the condition lasts only a short time such as minutes to hours. Acute angioedema is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to medications or foods. Chronic recurrent angioedema is when the condition returns over a long period of time. It typically does not have an identifiable cause. ALLERGY IN AYURVEDA According to ayurveda allergy is nothing but intolerance or decresed skin immunity, in ayurveda allergy comes from external factor but it can affect one of the individual only if it's overall dosha's are imbalanced, for skin allergy full body detoxification or dosha balance is very important factor and we can achieve it primarily by doing ayurvedic panchakarma therapy, along with ayurvedic medicines described in the ancient literature. At akshay arogyam we treat skin Allergies by scientifically proven ayurvedic treatments for skin developed and described in the charaka samhita and astanag hridayam.
Ayurveda & Arthritis. The ancient Ayurvedic texts describe two basic types of arthritis that correspond with osteoarthritis (Sandhigat Vata) and rheumatoid arthritis (Ama Vat). It is important to remember when considering any disease from an Ayurvedic perspective, that it is not just the disease that is treated, it is the person. Every person is treated as a unique case, and many variables are taken into account to ensure that a treatment program is specifically tailored for them as an individual. Having said that, lets take a look at the disease states of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis from an Ayurvedic perspective. In Ayurveda, osteoarthritis is considered a disease of malnutrition that tends to affect vulnerable joints (due to previous injury or infection, congenital reasons, etc). However, as with all disease, to find the root cause of osteoarthritis, we first must look at the processes of digestion, or Agni. When Agni (the ‘digestive fire’ ) is not working properly, wastes or toxins known as Ama are produced instead of useful nutrients for the tissues. These toxins accumulate in the gut and at the same time, Vata (Air/Ether) accumulates in the colon. Causes of Vata aggravation include: Eating excessively cold, dry, rough, bitter, astringent or pungent foods (including an excess of raw foods) Irregular schedules or meal times Excessive traveling Constant multitasking and rushing around High stress or high anxiety jobs or situations Lack of sound sleep Excessively cold or dry environments A physically or mentally traumatic event Extreme grief, change or shock Taking drugs Excessive stimulation and movement Aggravated Vata, along with Ama (toxins), move from the gut into the channels of circulation, find places in the body that are weak or vulnerable (in this case the joints) and settle in. The qualities of Vata, and this particular type of Ama, have a catabolic/drying effect that causes deterioration of the soft tissues in the joints and eventually the bones. At the same time, Ama can block the channels, supplying nutrients to the joints causing further malnutrition. The deterioration and subsequent irritation in the joint causes inflammation, stiffness, swelling and pain. In Ayurveda, rheumatoid arthritis is seen as a disease of toxic accumulation and immune malfunction. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, there is a very high level of accumulated Ama (hence the name), and in many cases, a considerable amount of excess heat (or Pitta). This Ama, combined with aggravated Vata and Pitta moves into the channels of the body and begins to affect Ojas (the vital essence of the tissues and the body-mind’s strength and immunity). This causes Ojas to become depleted and its qualities are changed. At the same time Ama blocks the channels and prevents the production of Ojas, depleting it further. This is the basis of autoimmune-disease. Ojas begins to function incorrectly and, along with Ama, causes the inflammatory responses, swelling and pain that we recognize as rheumatoid arthritis. Causes of Pitta aggravation include: Eating excessively heating, fried, stimulating, pungent, sour or salty foods and drinks (including red meat, fermented foods, alcohol, coffee, chilli, acidic foods) Exposure to excessively hot or humid environments Not eating when hungry Living with highly irritating situations Excessively heating exercise Excessively hot showers Excessive exposure to anger Violence, conflict and highly competitive situations Things that deplete Ojas: Excessive sexual activity Overwork Stress Physical trauma (such as a severe car accident) Psychological trauma (such as excessive stress or intense grief) Vigorous exercise beyond your capacity Things that deplete Ojas : Excessive sexual activity Overwork Stress Physical trauma (such as a severe car accident) Psychological trauma (such as excessive stress or intense grief) Vigorous exercise beyond your capacity Ayurvedic Arthritis Treatment : This is where Ayurvedic arthritis treatment and Western Medicine protocol differ dramatically. If the condition is particularly chronic or severe, Ayurvedic arthritis treatments can greatly reduce its debilitating effects or help prevent it from getting any worse. If it’s nature is medium-level chronic, Ayurveda can help to reverse the disease process, leading to a state of remission. In many cases, Ayurveda can actually offer a cure. Because the disease process is very well understood, Ayurvedic arthritis treatments can be applied that effect change at the root cause of the disease. In both cases of arthritis, strengthening Agni and removing Ama is the immediate concern. Without this, any other treatment will be of little effect. This is achieved by following a special diet that allows the Agni to become stronger and the body to begin eliminating excess toxins. In fact, vast improvements can be made in terms of inflammation, pain, swelling and stiffness just by diligently following the correct diet.
URTICARIA OR HIVES Hives (urticaria) are red, itchy welts that result from a skin reaction. The welts vary in size and appear and fade repeatedly as the reaction runs its course. The condition is considered chronic hives if the welts appear for more than six weeks and recur frequently over months or years. Often, the cause of chronic hives is not clear. Chronic hives can be very uncomfortable and interfere with sleep and daily activities. For many people, antihistamines and anti-itch medications provide relief. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of chronic hives include: ~Batches of red or skin-colored welts (wheals), which can appear anywhere on the body ~Welts that vary in size, change shape, and appear and fade repeatedly as the reaction runs its course ~Itching, which may be severe ~Painful swelling (angioedema) of the lips, eyelids and inside the Throat ~A tendency for signs and symptoms to flare with triggers such as heat, exercise and stress ~A tendency for signs and symptoms to persist for more than six weeks and to recur frequently and unpredictably, sometimes for months or years. In ayurveda Urticaria or hives are called as Shita-Pitta, the causative factors are imbalances in kapha and pitta dosha, Aamvisha sanchiti in body tissues, increased blood toxins etc. Ayurvedic treatment for Urticaria or hives include virechan treatment followed by medicines.medicines used are mostly pitta and kapha balancing in nature. At our akshay arogyam ayurvedic clinic we treat urticaria within very less amount of time with self prepared herbal medicine and our own designed panchakarma therapy.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid Arthritis (known as Amavata in Ayurveda) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. It can also cause inflammation of the tissue around the joints, as well as in other organs in the body. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body's tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. Patients with autoimmune diseases have antibodies in their blood that target their own body tissues, where they can be associated with inflammation. Because it can affect multiple other organs of the body, Rheumatoid Arthritis is referred to as a systemic illness and is sometimes called rheumatoid disease. Causes Increased intake of indigestible, heavy and incompatible foods; having food at improper times; indigestion; intake of milk and milk products, especially yogurt; intake of meat of aquatic animals; lack of physical activity or doing exercise after having fatty foods are some of the common causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Symptoms Thirst Swelling Indigestion Lethargy Pain and stiffness in the body Heaviness in the body Sometimes lack of appetite Pain and stiffness in the joints of the hands Ayurvedic Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment Improper food habits and sedentary lifestyle can lead to impairment of digestive fire, formation of ama (toxin) and vitiation of Vata (air). When a person indulges in Vata-aggravating diet and lifestyle, then this aggravated Vata circulates ama in the channels of the body and deposits it in the joints, causing Amavata. Ayurvedic treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis starts with pacification of Vata and elimination of toxins from the body. Herbal medicines are administered to improve the digestive fire and prevent further formation of ama. Panchakarma massage therapies are quite useful in subsiding pain in Arthritic patients.
Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet. That's because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body. For many people, varicose veins and spider veins — a common, mild variation of varicose veins — are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort. Sometimes varicose veins lead to more-serious problems. Varicose veins may also signal a higher risk of other circulatory problems. Treatment may involve self-care measures or procedures by your doctor to close or remove veins. According to ayurveda varicose veins are caused due to Rakta dhatu dusti, so raktamokshana is the main line of treatment in treating varicose veins by ayurveda, at our clinic we give panchakarma therapy along with medication for varicose veins, this can be completely cured by using ayurvedic treatments for varicose veins.
Impetigo and ayurveda Impetigo is a common, highly contagious bacterial skin infection. It mostly affects young children and infants. But people of any age can get it from contact with someone who is infected. Most impetigo is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The infection isn’t usually serious, but sometimes complications may develop. According to ayurveda it is a type of raktaja sukshma krimi related disease.non bullous type of impetigo comes under oupasargika roga.there is kapha-pitta samsarga in most of the lesions.raga and paka are the main features of pitta dosha. Kapha-Pittahara chikitsa is mainly given.sometimes there will be a aashukari state of the disease due to pitta-rakta releted bala samprapti.here krimighna chikitsa should be administered.bahiparimajana chikitsa is important as the disease belongs to oupasargika roga.
Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin.These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly.Psoriasis varies in severity from small, localized patches to complete body coverage. Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as the Koebner phenomenon. There are five main types of psoriasis: plaque,  guttate,  inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic.Plaque psoriasis, also known as psoriasis vulgaris, makes up about 90 percent of cases.It typically presents as red patches with white scales on top.Areas of the body most commonly affected are the back of the forearms, shins, navel area, and scalp.Guttate psoriasis has drop-shaped lesions.Pustular psoriasis presents as small non-infectious pus-filled blisters.Inverse psoriasis forms red patches in skin folds.Erythrodermic psoriasis occurs when the rash becomes very widespread, and can develop from any of the other types.Fingernails and toenails are affected in most people with psoriasis at some point in time. Psoriasis is generally thought to be a genetic disease that is triggered by environmental factors.genetic factors predispose to psoriasis.Infections and psychological stress can also play a role.Psoriasis is not contagious.The underlying mechanism involves the immune system reacting to skin cells.According to ayurveda psoriasis has many causative factors like unhealthy diet, stree, heredity etc. Acharya charaka told in charaka samhita about various causative factors along with external factors responsible for psoriasis.at akshay arogyam we give best ayurvedic treatments for psoriasis by using our self prepared in house herbal medications.
Hyperacidity And Ayurveda Hyperacidity simply means an increased level of acid in the stomach. The stomach secretes Hydrochloric Acid, a digestive juice that breaks down food particles into their smallest form to aid digestion. When there is an excessive amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, the condition is known as Hyperacidity. Causes Of hyperactivity The main cause of hyperacidity is the aggravation of Pitta Dosha in the body. Pitta is an Ayurvedic humor that symbolizes heat or fire. There are many causes for the aggravation of Pitta, main among them are: Eating foods that do not suit the constitution or foods that should not be taken together (milk and fish, milk and salt), excessively sour or spicy foods and liquids, white flour products and white sugar products, smoking and excessive consumption of tea, coffee and alcohol, eating in a state of indigestion, suppressing urges of urination and stool, sleeping in the daytime after meals, staying awake late into the night, excessive stress, anger and hunger, excessive exposure to sun and heat and gastro-duodenal ulcer. Symptoms Stiffness in the stomach Lack of appetite Constipation Indigestion Sour belching Actual vomiting Feeling of restlessness Ayurvedic Hyperacidity Treatment Hyperacidity is known as Amlapitta in Ayurveda (Amla means sour and Pitta means heat). Hyperacidity therefore is a condition characterized by an increase of sourness and heat in the body. The aggravated Pitta impairs the digestive fire, leading to improper digestion of food and production of ama (toxins). This ama gets accumulated in the digestive channels and causes Hyperacidity. The Ayurvedic treatment of Hyperacidity is focused on pacifying the aggravated Pitta Dosha. Cleansing herbs are also administered to eliminate toxins from the body and cleanse the channels. This automatically enhances the digestive fire, leading to better digestion.
